    That was mostly the case a decade ago, but Chinese manufacturing has come a long way. I remember reading a few years ago that the center of gravity has shifted.

    GF has a Ripmo v2 in the shop waiting on some lingering parts, and I have a Banshee Titan frame inbound. If Helena hadnít gotten a foot of snow last weekend Iíd be a lot antsier to get them built up.

    I like the 10 a lot - it tends to run ~$70 in Montana. I bought a bottle in VA last fall for a little over $50, which I though was a bargain. I should give the Storm expression a shot.

    Itís closer to 20í with the tongue and youíd probably want a half ton to tow it. Itís more trail-capable than we need, but I want something that isnít going to rattle to death on USFS roads.
