    Little Bad Boy here!
    Originally from Quezon City, Philippines but born in Thailand to Filipino parents. My mother is Fil-Chinese though. I am now settled in Illinois, USA.
    Age 41 (for a few more days)
    My ex-ride was a Mongoose Wire. And yeah, it was a department store bike. I sold it last night so I can get a better bike. I am currently on a tight budget and looking for a used bike just so I can see if bike riding is for me. It is kind of discouraging that you can't all year round in the cold midwest.

    Editing this because I got an old Giant Rincon last weekend. It's awesome!

    Mabuhay kayo lahat!

    Welcome, JT. Have you done Bootleg Canyon yet? I'm going there for Thanksgiving and giving it another go (it's one of the toughest trails I've been on to date).

    Ron: Yes, Bootleg is my home trail, I do most of the xc stuff and some of the DH trails (I don't have my dh bike anymore)
    Let me know if you're going solo. I'm gonna try to get a few Filipinos together.
    Have you tried Cottonwood? Ok din, awesome views, pero not as techy.

    I get out to Vegas at least once a year since my parents have a place there and it's fun to visit. My wife and I even left a bike there for each of us to make trips easier.

    I love Bootleg Canyon. Its got a lot of tech sections which are so much fun and challenging, especially on my pink rigid singlespeed

    I also hit Cottonwood several times on my last visit during Thanksgiving last year, and even met a crew of cool pinoy riders (headed by Arthur V) that showed me around and took me to the big Turkey Day ride.

    One day when just my wife and I were riding, we took some pics, and one was published in last month's Dirt Rag magazine

    I'm not sure when we'll make to Vegas this year, but maybe I'll ping some of you to see if you want to ride?

    @desertrider1: It's my first year doing DH, and I did the shuttle run from Snakeback to Reaper a few times. That is one gnarly trail! I'm coming back this Thanksgiving, so I'll let you know.

    @Drevil: You hit Bootleg on a rigid SS? You da man!

    JT... I've been practicing for my return to Bootleg. But judging from how I fell below expectations at Northstar last week, I'm sure I'll be served some humble pie again. Hirap nang matanda.

    UAs unite I was in Vegas couple of weeks ago. Xandei introduced me to SixStrongMTB on their FB page and so I was able to ride Cottonwood with Alvin (Sixstrong member) and few guys we met at the trail.

    Here's me from last week's ride here in SoCal.

    JT, not sure if you remember me.
    Nonetheless, you owe me a tour of some of Vegas gems (maybe Mt. Charleston or other trails besides BC). I should pay relatives a visit in Vegas in the next month or two.

    In the meantime, here's one of my 2013 rig ready to get muddy this afternoon.

    JT,

    I'll be in Vegas later this month (11/18/12-11/26/12), and if you feel like meeting for a ride, lemme know. I'm not sure when I can ride, but I'll try to figure something out.

    Alright! Fellow Flip rider... same age too! I just started DHing myself. Really love it. Your Taka is a good bike (Hill won Jr Worlds on that bike). Switch out those Juicy brakes and use an Angleset and you'll be set (no pun intended). Shred, pare!

    @ ron m....
    Where you at pare? down here in Houston, we dont have a DH trail, so I use my Taka XCing with a friend who owns a Hobgoblin...but will be trying out Big Cedar DH Trail in Arlington near Dallas this weekend...planning also to drive up to Sandia Peak, NM in the summer (July maybe)...BTW, which angle set you think i can get to upgrade the stock head set? and what brakes will hold out the best for downhilling? I am thinking about those upgrades too seeing them as a hot topic among DH gurus...anyway, nice to hear from you pare...

    I'm in the Bay Area, California, pare. I've been to Houston, and I did not see any mountains... haha! Meron yatang bike parts sa New Mexico, you should check those out (lift-assisted).

    Since you don't use the Taka for DH riding yet, hold off on upgrading til you do. The Juicy brakes are fine for XC-AM riding. Ang bigat nga lang to pedal that thing (43 lbs right?). If you decide to upgrade to the bare minimum requirement (in my opinion anyway), you can move up to the Elixir line (I have Elixir CRs and they brake fine for bike park use). So with the 888, your HA is about 66 and you want to be close to 64 for real DH geo. Cane Creek and Works Components (Works Components - Angle Headsets to fit Most Frame Types & CNC Bicycle Components Proudly Made in the UK) have adjustable headsets that could slacken you up to 2 degrees. The popular opinion is that the Works headset is superior.

    Lemme know when you're in the Bay Area and we'll give you a taste of riding here in my parts. Ingat, pare.

    I was in cali. late last year at my cousin's place (San Diego), might be there again before the year ends but its way too far from your place, anyway, thanks for the invite pare...the closest lift-assisted bike park to texas is sandia peak near albuquerque, a 14-hr drive from houston, needs time to plan so might do it in early july...thanks for the heads up as well on the anglesets pare, cane creek is easier to find online but cost more than the works c., if i decide to go with the works c., its going to come from the UK...has to wait until june before the trip to NM...ill be looking around also for those brakes that you mentioned, it will be next on the upgrade list...ingat din dyan pare, who knows, we might cross each others trail in the future...cheers.

    Very nice! How did you like it on the bike park? Did you try to hit some jumps/doubles?

    Went twice this summer so far... had a long vacation sa Pilipinas kaya walang masyadong ride time. Here's a vid from the first trip (Northstar... I was filming the entire segment... one front facing chest mount camera, one rear facing helmet cam and then I switched it over to the bar so it was facing me).

    wow nice ride bro...super ganda ng bike park...how i wish i can go there and try it out someday...anyway, there were a few jumps on another trail but not as big as whats in northstar and the fact na first time for me to ride downhill, i decided not to get adventurous...also, i wasnt used to the high altitude kaya medyo hingal na hingal ako pagdating sa baba...but yeah, i had a blast and will definitely do it again next year, im planning to take a trip to Angelfire resort...

    Thanks Ron M.!
    The first one is a Giant Faith for my freeride. I normally ride XC at Stevens Canyon, UCSC, and Lake Chabot. Freeride at UCSC and Demo and sometimes explore other trails whenever time permits.
    Cnabi mo, kahit sumasakit na katawan ko after the rides, I still do it every weekend! Just love riding my bikes.
    San ka d2? Ingat!

    Pareho lang tayo.

    XC rides @ Lake Chabot on Tuesday nights (although I use my AM bike... I don't like hardtails... would rather suffer pedaling up on a heavy but plush bike). Sunday DH rides at Pacifica. Have not done UCSC yet, but I'll hit Demo a couple of times a year (love Braille).

    Let's ride one of these days if you're available. =)

    Wow... seryoso yang mga bike mo, ah!

    If you'd like to ride with the Flips (and you probably do already), look for these groups on Facebook:

    Yabangz MTB
    Lake Chabot Riders
    Pogiboy MTB
    Tropa

    Barangay NorCal: About

    Seems like mtbing is a Flip thing... lol!

    Salamat pare! Actually I just started riding again after a long time of couch surfing. So I need to get back in shape this winter for next spring...Northstar and Kirkwood are my goals for next year and maybe Whistler!

    Thanks for the suggestions for those groups, I will definitely join in on the fun!

    As far as Pinoys being MTB fans, we came from a place where most roads are "bako bako" anyway...Mabundok pa!

    You seem to have the right toys considering you don't ride much... or maybe sandbagger ka lang... ayun pala, goat pag akyat tsaka hagibis pagbaba... lol!

    I've been trying to get my youngest to be interested too, kaya lang medyo takot (dati, hindi pero she is picking up bad habits from her older sister). Northstar definitely fun... Kirkwood doesn't convert to a full-on bike park during summers yet (I think they host a race or two). Whistler is like Mecca... haven't been there during summer but I will say that the Canucks are bike badasses.

    Actually I've picked riding again late spring of this year and been riding my Unreal HT 2-3x a week. I even rebuilt my olskool 99 Schwinn Homegrown to use for work. To get my riding fix daily.

    My climbing skills? I'm great at hike-a-bike! But I could hold my own on the DH though. I just got my Reign SX, this Sunday will be my first real test of the bike, thinking about going to Skeggs.

    Dude that picture of you and your daughter is so cool! Fully geared and everything! Just keep at it and teach her everything you learned from your experience.

    Thanks, man! I usually do Tuesday night rides at Lake Chabot either with the Endless Cycle guys or with my buddies (for the cardio stuff) and hit Pacifica on Sundays for the fun DH stuff. Let me know if you want to join.

    And I am older than you so you can do it too! Lol! Mas masakit at matagal nga lang ang pag-galing...lol!
