    Sorry Schumi...

    Schumi,

    Big opps..I thought you are talking about the trails around LA area. I'll
    PM or e-mail you if i'm around, i love 2X also and haven't tried any trails around
    San Gabriel Area. I have a sister in Eagle Rock and i can drive around if i need to hook up with you.
    My favorite trail around LA area is San Juan trail...too bad that my MTB friend moved to Dallas,Texas. But it happened also that Dallas has alot of MTB friendly trails, I'm a frequent visitor now and we hit 3 different trails; Rowlett creek, Cedar hill and Cleburne. All
    singletrack, but different type of riding than my local trails. Tight and twisty, so many switchbacks along the trees, but no contant climbs.

    no need to say sorry akazan

    that's ok akazan...no biggie. just lemme know when u'r in the area, eagle rock is just a stone throw away to SGM,,,in fact that's around 10mins drive compare to my area which is in the west side of LA, close to half an hour drive on weekend mornings and 1hr drive during workweek/rush hour.

    i know some trails that we went last time (my bike was setup on XC before) in Arcadia (probably you've heard this town) that it has a constant climb of around 5miles(8km) up (5-10% grade)...a'la tour de france climb and down with bunch of singletracks (even with some scary exposures). i hope i can ride with you eventhough my bike is setup for AM,,,close to 33lbs now, it's still climbable at slow pace. check this website http://ronbigelow.com/Outings/Trails...ll/merrill.htm,,,his website is very useful, some of the places here in SGM that we went were based in this creative website.

    well...to much for the topic,,,let's just ride when u get here. just PM me or send me an email. have fun guys,,,and i hope i can ride with the guys in PI. happy trails!!!

    nice, nice, nice, pics,trails and bikes, back in the day, we only had a choice between patria and kairuz, the later being better of the two, no trails to speak of but a wide open
    lot wherein either a herd of carabaos or a pack of dogs would chase after us. also, we would trek to sagada for something other than mt biking.

    Hey Darius ! Just got home from riding the trails, and ready to do jack **** for the rest of the afternoon . Riding is pretty much still the same , Reverse Palace and Pina's for Goto and the coffee trail back . Nice to see you guys havin a blast ! The little ones are not so little anymore . I ordered a Wee Ride Kangaroo seat on Ebay , so I can take my baby girl on the bike ( eventually to the trail if Nikki does'nt forbid it ). Maybe you should get one of those since it is mounted in the front , then you can bring both kids with you on the bike , am sure you will get stronger doing so ( like Rocky IV training) .

    Good to hear from you again and Happy Thanksgiving ! ( Hmmm are'nt you Canadian ? do Canadians have thanksgiving ? )

    Warm Regards ,

    Leo

    Hey Leo! wife is sort of Canadian, but worse yet, she is vegetarian! So I cooked a turkey and she cooked a blob of tofu for Thanksgiving. Excited for your baby girl. She will be running your household soon if not already. Mine is almost four and firmly in charge. She has her own bike now with training wheels but is pretty timid about taking it out for a spin. Give my regards to the gang. I'll try to put to some pix up of a great network of purpose-built singletrack in a local park near here. The land was allocated to a local club just for bike trails, and they rock. Apart from that one spot, though, the riding here is really tame.

    I'm trying to gauge interest from Pinoy riders about getting together for a long weekend (or maybe a week) of riding in Moab/Fruita next year. Either early Fall or very late Spring. It will be fun epic riding, Filipino and American food and if somebody can bring San Mig, it will be complete...
    If I put something together, will ya'll want to do it?

    Get together

    Flipnidaho,

    I think March or April will still be cold...some parts of Moab and Fruita will
    still have some snow. How about May or June? Kids are out and much better for
    the whole family.

    Hey Akazan,
    We've been in Moab the past 5 years around Spring Break and have had great luck with weather (we go every month from October to May every year). We can't do May since we'll be in the PI for that month and June will be hot down there...
    Let me know what you think...

    Nasa Manila ako ngayong Pasko. Ano ba ang magandang (at murang) bilin diyan? Maganda ba ang quality nang mga cycling jersey at mga damit? Nakita ko na quaity nung mga shorts. Di ko masyado-type. Mas-mahal ba ang mga components dito sa US - gaya nang pedal, saddle, etc - kaysa diyan?

    US made items are more expensive in the PI (like frames, some forks like Fox or White Brothers, etc...).
    Most other items that are made in the Far East are less expensive in the PI.
    You have a lot of choices in locally made cycling clothing that vary in quality. Your best bet would be to visit a few shops that cater to high end stuff (like All Terra in Libis) and check out their stuff...

    Flipnidaho,

    April seems a good month. I think spring is a good time in Moab or Fruita, it's not too cold
    and you can go for a long epic ride.

    All Terra in Libis. Cool. Thanks! I'll be sure to check it out. Figured I'm getting clothing. Don't want to worry about weight. Thanks again!

    Looking to ride in PI

    I'll be in Metro Manila and Marineduque from February 1 to 22. I won't be bringing any gear and would need to rent. Medium frame, 44.5 shoe, etc.

    Salamat

    March 16th to the 22nd 2008!!!

    I've been checking out Moab house rental rates and if we get 8 people in the same house, we can collectively end up paying between $35 to $50 per person which is relatively inexpensive compared to the typical $100 per night hotel room. Plus we can save by cooking at home!
    I also sent an invite to Francois, mtbr.com founder so we'll see if he can make it as well...
    As usual, all riders and non flips of every ability are welcome (although a love of Filipino food is a must)..
    Before I reserve a house, I will probably need some commitments to who can make it so we can determine the size of the house/condo by the end of this month, start of Feb...
    To whet your appetite, here are some 2007 Moab pictures...

    I heard that this company was owned by Filipinos based in the US, was suprised that the owners are active here in MTBR. More power and good luck on the business. Are you coming out with a mountain bike?
