Didn't notice a bike with him. In hindsight, maybe he was trying to steal the rocks they have blocking that entrance? The tailgate of the truck was down and as I came around the corner he was kneeling down near one of the rocks before he looked up and saw me riding towards him.

Lawrence Creek was quite snotty today. Not leaving ruts, but greasy on top and my low profile tires were sliding around. Schoen was very good.
Anyone have any runs ins with an older gentleman (white hair and mustache) driving a maroon S-10/Sonoma pick up around Ft. Ben? He was blocking the pedestrian entrance today and as I rode by in the grass he had some words for me, and when I stopped (I didn't hear him at first) to ask what he had said, he got flustered and mumbled something about how I rode by too close to him, even though he saw me coming down the road and I was several feet away from his truck and him. Overall, a very perplexing encounter.

I double checked and I was wrong about the size. It is a L. It is a 20 inch, and the aluminum Sette Razzo frames came in sizes 16, 18, 20, and 22. I checked the order confirmation e-mail from when I bought this back in 2013 and it is a 20 inch, which is a large. Let me know if you would like to take a look. The chainring on the frame is the same one which was on the Monocog I bought from you!
That Sette is a great frame for the money. I had one for several years. If yours was a L instead of an XL I would have bought it already.

I used a soft sided case (similar to an EVOC) to fly with my single speed hardtail 29er to San Francisco last year. Bike was in fine shape and the bag was fairly easy to carry around. No extra fees either, since the bag contained "convention display materials." Woman at the airline desk in Indy didn't believe me but didn't push the issue. Guy in San Fran on the way home could not have cared less what was in there.

Saw the entrance to the Last Chance trail during the race on Sunday. Out of curiosity, what type of bridge designs are being considered for the creek crossing?

Really enjoyed the DINO race last weekend, but had a quick trail question. On the new single track section on the north end just past the firetower, we passed what looked like a rock formation with water seeping out of it. The opening in the rock almost seemed man made. Any idea what that was?

I believe if the park is Red/closed, there is no racing.

Trails were great today. It has been about 4 years since I last rode Wapehani and it is still a blast. The rock features in the expert section were very cool!
