    Nice…thanks for the sled advice guys.

    I think I’ll be heading up to Bozeman soon to pick up a Summit 151″…pretty good deal. $500 under list. There will also be a Summit 144″ next to it.

    😈 Keep your eyes peeled for a post, if I can squeeze it in you know I’m traveling w/ my splittin’ gear.

    ❓ Track length? I’m 5’7″, about 160 and my uncle is about the same a little lighter but he’s 63. The guy said a 144″ track would be better for him to ride and not get as fatigued throughout the day. I don’t see him using his as much as myself but that hopefully will mean I can take both. hmmm…

    sorry for drifting this thread bcrider…should I move it?

    Let us know when. I have a very open schedule to ride and if you’re gonna have some new sleds there are lots of options 😉

    too bad my old bronco isn’t trail worthy right now since I hear ya have a nice truck.

    I had a 600 144″ before my 900 159″, there is a huge difference. The 144″ trenched pretty bad and got stuck way easier. However it was a lot lighter and easier to “throw around”. Consider how you will be using the sled first, sounds to me like the 144″ would work just fine.

    Congrats and ejnjoy!

    * you comin thru Washington at all? course it’s a bit wet right now… 😥

    Edit: and to reduce thread drift… I just want a bunch of new snow 😥 😥 😥 I already have all the goods…

    Thanks Drew for inviting all of us out to your beautiful state to sample some of your stashes in the Adirondacks. 😉 😉 😉

    BTW – Nice pics on TTips.

    I’m getting soggy out here in Cali, so I’m hoping for some rain gear for Christmas. 😥

    I’m not sure yet what is going on. I’m dealing w/ a few places for the sleds. It will depend on how busy I will be at work. I’d like to do a tour up that way if time prevails. I definitely know I’ll be up at the end of February thru the first 2 weeks of March. Most likely based out of Spokane/Sandpoint.

    Keep ’em crossed for snow.

    mtnrider:

    I know a bunch of sledders in AK that get around just fine on 144″ sleds – they’re into boondocking (what you’ll be doing to get to areas) and highmarking.

    Myself, I ride the REV 800 151″ in the group. It’s a lot of machine but it takes me places I probably shouldn’t go at my skill level. I just always figured that is how you build your skills. oh yah, I’m 5’10 bucksixtyfive and don’t have too many problems with the size/weight of the sled.

    Good luck with the purchase and get ready to have a blast getting out to the areas you’re gonna split.

    One more thing, if those summits aren’t the REV chassis make sure to get bar risers (if they don’t already have them) when you’re at the dealer. You can put 2″ risers on most all sleds without having to replace brake(hydraulic lines) or throttle cables. Even just 2″ risers will make a world of difference when standing.

    If your gramps is gonna be riding with you I imagine he’ll be standing at some point – a riser will be critical for him so he’s not stressing out his back. You both should sit and stand on the sleds to see how both positions feel. Also, imagine having the 2″ riser on the bars and compare how it would feel.

    Hey MtnR- Have I ever told you how much I like you? You’re such a nice guy and one hell of a splitter as well. And your Mtn biking skills are terrific. We should hang out sometime. 😉
