    Iron Man

    Here's a few vid clips from our Memorial Day ride out at Iron Mountain.

    that ride is close to where my office was in san diego. one of my favorite after-work rides. i rarely saw other bikers on it. first time i rode it was on my 4 inch full susp (many years ago), then on my 6 inch, then on my 8 inch travel bike...all 26ers.

    now that i have a 29er hardtail i'd like to try that trail again if i'm ever down in socal.

    thanks for posting.

    Aw come on... those videos are cheesy without an "after" shot of the 26er getting all hung up and crying on its backside.

    Where's the sweet videos going back up again?! Just kidding. Sweet looking riding spot. I'd give you even more props for riding it rigid, but I don't know if that bike counts as a "rigid bike." Nice to see those wheels working over the rocks, speaking of which they looked to be working really well when you got some speed through some of those sections.

    i'd be more impressed if you just rolled up to that stuff with your seat at a normal riding height and cleaned it

    Drag up an old thread i know. But i'm currently researching a possible 29r.

    One comment is that you must have ridden these trails thousands of times so those lines are perfect.... to be fair.

    Great riding though.

    Thanks B! I think about you guys everytime I ride Iron mountain...it's our mini version of South Mountain.

    DosBoy: I upload vids to Photo Bucket and then just embed the HTML in the post body.
