QuantumMechanicJust pulled trig on a (basically) new 2018 Axys 155x2.6 with only 100 wife-ridden miles on it for an unreal price. She's a bone stocker at the moment but between the money I saved and my summer cash flow, she'll have a good looking wrap, some extra psi courtesy of Boondocker, and a new narrow front end (Skinz or ZBros) by the start of next season. A suspension upgrade will probably follow depending on how funds look after all that lol.
I do a lot of mountain riding out in Colorado. I'm no Burandt but I do like to get myself into the trees and see how stuck I can get haha. I'll do some occasional sled skiing every so often too. Being from Grand Junction, I primarily ride up on the Mesa, around Crawford/Paonia, and on top of Vail Pass. I make it up around Rabbit Ears and Grand Lake as well as down to Kebler a few times a season.
I've also got a 2015 KX450F kitted with a Timbersled 120SX and that thing is an absolute blast. Anyone else into snowbiking too?

RusticlesRode a snowbike last winter, blown away by their capabilities, almost cheating in the trees haha.
QuantumMechanicHaving ridden both sleds and bikes, they both have their obvious merits, but I agree with this. My Timbersled (stock gearing) doesn't have the momentum or track speed to pull steep hills like my sled but damn if it isn't the easiest and most fun thing to just effortlessly lean and weave through an obstacle course of handlebar-wide low-angle trees!
