This one was the Hangover trail in Sedona. We also hit the Fins in West PHX and something called Secret trail in the Mcdowell Mtns. Lots of climbing this trip. I have figured out that the Marzocchi55 that I have on this old Kona is at least 2.5" shorter than the 66 that it was designed around (despite only an inch in travel difference). The result of this is a pretty steep head angle that kills confidence when descending steep /rocky trails. I've resolved to get a DH fork for it and build up a few other trail bikes in the near future.
This corner, under the nose shaped rock, had a flat, icy ledge. Ten feet below that are a dead tree and a large rock to keep you from hundreds of feet of exposure, should you slip.
Those corners have serious consequences (death or worse). Tony rode most of them while I didn't think I was low enough for many of them. It is tough to pedal with one's seat post in bottom out mode. The possibility of tagging a bar end and tipping over at low speed had me worried there, and I wanted my seat low on those corners.
