    Canyon Acres and actually we will be riding #1 as well if the booters are in good condition. I just hope it does'nt rain too much and make all the trails too muddy for Thursday morning.


    Rock-it is also in the same area as Tel & Acres as well as Stair step. The shut for stair step is a bit long though but we may hit it.

    Acres and the trail may be smoother but they are allot faster, and will make you pay big if you loose control.

    After seeing that x-ray of Han's Rey's leg after he ate it on Telonics...I believe it.

    Hopefully the weather holds out.

    The Telonix don't fit?

    I'm curious about that tire.
    Although they look like they'd be super slow rolling.
    And I'm not really stoked on Kenda's in general...

    2.5" max on the Chumba, just like most "race" bikes. Those Telonix are like 3"

    Hey, any chance I can grab those 647's back on Thursday? Also, the spare cleats that were with them?

    I have a pair of 520's you can use if you still need pedals, they just don't have the platform.

    I tried, but those Mallet's suck.

    I can't seem to keep my feet on the pedals, even with 5.10's.
    On Geronimo, I was bouncing all over the place.

    Yup, I am claiming rider error on this one too. I never have problems with my feet bouncing off the pedals. Blowing off the pedals from rocks, thats another story.

    Just one more of the "tweaker" changes that needs to be made to the bike

    I bonked.
    And the bike was not working, my shocks were only compressing halfway. AND...my brake was tweaked.

    I still passed you. Even with your 30 minutes of rest.

    The trash talking is getting old quick...

    Whoa Whoa Whoa there little buddy!!! Trash talking is what our ancestors were born on and that is the essence of our friendship. Are you telling me our friendship is getting old quick. .

    What are you trying to do turn us to some sissy rainbow people like markskee (mister One Runner w/ OTB)

    You take that back and apologize young one. and respect all that what it takes to be a dirtbag of a man!!!!

    Kavu,

    The boys were discussing heading up to Bootleg friday night and riding all day saturday coming back that night on the 6th. Sound like we got doodoo, Jeff Jones, and Sixty. I put the banzor on Markskee because he won't ride and then not offer to drive.

    Rain rides in SoCal

    FYI, the rangers give tickets on rainy days at Aliso Woods Park. Telonics is okay, but really short for the production. The soil is okay after the rain.

    A better option would be to ride in the San Gabriels. You can shuttle to the top on the way to the Mt Wilson towers and bomb down sweet singletrack with various types of terrain, drops, rock features and views. If you park at JPL, there is a short fire road climb connector with the last portion of singletrack. It's about 12 miles of singletrack and it's all rideable during and after the rains 'cause it's decomposed granite. No muddy build up on your tires. It's just cold at the top 'cause of elevation.

    I hope this helps.
    Happy trails!
