    Recently got a new Trek 4300 loving it so far! Hit a local trail for the 2nd day in a row!!! 5% gradient average so not too shabby it's in the Palisades - Will Rogers State Park.

    Got a new saddle, tires, clampy grips, and clipless shoes, pedals......of course it's the worst rain storm socal has seen in like 4-5 years, of course.

    So tomorrow while I'm rained in I'll put all of this crap on the bike, maybe I can get out Sunday.

    Don't really care about the roads, but the trails have to be a disaster right now.

    It's so much rain 29 palms flooded Lol! I went riding the ridges by where I live and found a wonderful dh line after I finish climbing with a few jumps along the way. Good ride today and no flats.

    I did not do anything on my bike today. Mainly because I do not have one I want to buy a bike for light trails though. I have looked at a few older Treks. The only problem I am having is a guy wanting $225 for a 1999 830 AL or $250 for an 05' 4300 (orange model without discs) Trying to stay away from department stores. I am sure something will come up.

    Patience is your friend. I picked up an 07 or 08 Canfield Balance pretty tricked out for 800. Only thing I've replaced is the tires for terrain.

    I know how you feel. I've ridden to where I work (6.5 mi. one way), looked down at my front tire to notice the brown stripe from dozens of those things stuck in there.

    Actually, you will get some / all of it back, because now you will be quicker at changing a tube and next time you are out on the trail, you will be able to change it out quicker I run tubeless and on the RARE occasion that it wont seal up and I have to put a tube in, I can do it in well under 5 minutes

    The changing tube part of it only took about 5 mins a wheel... The remainder of the time was spent removing all the thorns from the tyres... A process that ended up involving a pair of tweasers, a pair of needle nosed pliers and some very sore fingers

    Did 12 miles yesterday and it got it a little dirty so I just finished washing it and did some minor adjustments.
    I'm going to shorten my front brake cable some time this week. But until then, it looks nice and shiny.

    Well......this was more of over the past weekend, but I have to share Saturday - went on my first ride through Sycamore Canyon (Ventura County, CA). Gorgeous fire road trail w/ some climbs....14 miles of awesomeness!!! Then Sunday went to Fontana, CA to check out the Pros do some Super-D downhill competition. They're crazy. I'm convinced of this. After seeing that I don't know how the Red Bull Rampage people do it. Insane.

    Here's my Strava link if you're interested to check out my Sycamore Canyon ride

    Perfect riding right out my door yesterday, cross town to the local brewery for a couple tasty samples and back on a bunch of stuff I've packed in with the snowmobile. Rode probably 7 miles and only punched through a couple times as long as I stayed on the tread path. Smooth as a sidewalk for the most part, nice and peaceful, lots of little critters out and about. Can't wait to get back on dirt, but it was good to get out.

    Great day for a ride. Just on the edge of too hot. I set a new personal record for the final 0.7 miles along the paved bike path: 1 minute, 55 seconds, for an average speed of 20.7 mph. Of the 3,345 recorded Strava times for this stretch of the route, I am tied as the 939th fastest. Not bad considering Iím on a mountain bike.

    First Ride!

    Took my very first bike (Trek Fuel Ex 7) out for a spin today. Went to Government Canyon here in San Antonio. I had a blast but my ass hurts. Is it normal for a first time ride, or am I just riding wrong?

    I was super exhausted after I was done. I went on an intermediate trail that turned into a challenging one at the end. After I went down that one for a mile or two (it was kicking my butt), I went back and had a blast going downhill for a change.

    Any tips for a noob? I'm looking forward to getting back out next week!

    The sore arse is normal and will go away.. A good set of riding shorts will help!

    I went to Jarrahdale third weekend in a row and had a fun but relatively short ride.. Broke a spoke on Wednesday so had the bike in the shop to get it fixed Friday, today was first rode out n broke another spoke -.-

    I did two rides today on my Trek Fuel EX 7 one morning ride at 9:30 in Wilwood Park. Was actually really amazing - first stream crossing, first single track-hardcore downhill (well, probably not a "real" downhill run, but pretty damn fast for me!), first switchbacks I just had to dismount on cause I didn't wanna fly off the mountain, first "fishtail" to go into a left turn (it was a last ditch effort cause I was going WAY too fast to turn into it - actually pulled it off and for a second felt like a pro flying through the forest in British Colombia like on T.V......"felt" being the operative word in that sentence). And finally - my 2nd ride which was an hours drive away but well worth the 38 min I spent doing two loops on it. Very fast fire road downhill runs :-) yipeeee!!!! Now I need to rest for a day and heal my body

    I am almost finished the rebuild of my Giant ATX 840 mountain bike.
    Yesterday I installed a new Cane creek headset and today I went and picked up a WTB front rim that uses a quick disconnect.
    I have replaced everything but the rear rim, shifters and brake levers. Still waiting on my headset spacers (hence the extra stem below the handlebars) and handgrip locks to show up.
    I've spent more money on this rebuild than I could have bought a 2 year old mountain bike for but I had fun rebuilding this and would do it again in a second.

    Ride more. Your rear end will get used yo the seat most likely... Or you might need a different seat. Ride the one you have for a couple weeks though.

    I broke the rear derailleur, and got punched in the chest by the handlebar when the wheel locked up on a climb. New bike cant get here fast enough (been riding the same walmart junk for 6 years finally dead).

    Third time this week to hit this particular trail, and it's only Wednesday ;~) I hadn't done it for a while and kind of forgot how much fun it was.

    Took my bike out to Upper Peter's Canyon for the first time. Road all around, got lost but found my way out - followed to other gentlemen back to the front parking area. Helped a drunk old guy who got a nasty nail through his tube. Gave him my spare and he paid me $10bucks for it. So went back to Rock'nRoad (LBS) and picked up another spare in case I need it or some other soul out there. It was a great first ride and I know I'll be back up there riding. That one big hill (Big Red I think it's called) was a rush - clocked 29.5mph!!

    Not been out for a couple of weeks.. But the last ride I had at Cannock was a mix of good and bad. Good that I did 2 laps and felt fine at the end of the ride apart from a stiff shoulder after a little off at the 1 mile mark.. A stupid little off which just wrenched my shoulder enough to still be sore 2 weeks later but I manned up and still did both laps.

    Bad... about half way round the second lap some guy passed me before a section with some quite good rollers which are a great laugh if you get it right.. But get it wrong.. This poor guy did.. I entered the third of about 5 or 6 of them and heard a groaning noise so pulled up as hard as I could.. I only just stopped in time as it is a really fast section. It seems he got caught out by the two definite lines and was launched to the side and had a suspected broken rib and a possible AC shoulder ligament separation or fractured collar bone. I stopped but a few riders didn't stop to help and eventually 3 of us had stopped to help him off the trail and down to the car park which was only 400 or so yards away! A bit off when people will not stop on trail to help an injured rider....

    After the ride I think I want to try a slightly longer stem as the one on the bike is a short-ish 65mm long one and I have just ordered a 90mm Crank Bros Cobalt 3 stem to see if it helps with adding a little more weight over the front. The Orange Crush is a compact bike which is great fun down hill but a little short when climbing.
    Crank Brothers Cobalt 3 Stem | Chain Reaction Cycles
    I also ordered a Conti 2.4 X King with folding bead for the front to go with the 2.4 Mountain King II on the rear. I just hope they work as a good match front and rear...

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Rode it. Longer ride than I've ever done - was great. Then I came home and did a little service on it. Today I learned how to (and then did) service the hubs on my bike. A year ago there was no way I would've tried to tackle something like this. It's a nice feeling to learn more and more every time I work on it.

    Had a free day so went to see my dad and took the bike for a little ride out.... Set off from dads in town and rode to Sherwood pines do do most of the red route and then ride back to dads.. Nothing eventful to be honest and no breakdowns or punctures... I actually enjoyed it more than I had expected and didnt feel as bad as I have done previously... I still feel like a beginner and unfit when I get passed. But what the hell, I am out there getting miles under my belt....

    Forgot to post....but how about what I did this past SAT and SUN?

    Sat - did a ride in Chino Hills State Park - about an hour's drive from me and man....what a gem. Great, vast expanse of meadows and hills. Awesome.

    Sun - Morning group ride at Sycamore Canyon.....saw a new trail or two and its also another beautiful ride. Then in the pm I had a Demo ride on an Ibis Ripley out in the Santa Monica Mountains. OMG....what a bike. I want one.....hopefully soon

    First ride on the new slacker (1.5 degree) headset. Felt more confident on the downhill sections and it seemed to perform better on the tech uphill as well.

    SRAM's warranty is awesome. Too bad most of their products are crap, and that is probably why their warranty is so good. But the reason I bring this up is because last week, I brought my Recon Silver to my LBS for repairs, and they sent it in to RockShox for warranty. Turns out RockShox had no Recons in stock and instead they sent a Sid RCT3.
    And all I wanted was a Reba. So while I did not do anything on my MTB today, or even for the past week, that makes up for it.

    Yep that top speed was on the homeward road section down hill.. I could have pushed harder but as the speed limit is 30mph anyway and there were speed humps I didnt try any harder... I did overtake a car at one point though... haha. OK it had slowed for the speed hump but still the look on her face as I passed her was priceless...

    I put the Sid on my Cobia today.
    I payed $50 in labor for it (to get a new steerer tube), but the fork is sick, and when it retails at over $1000, it is completely worth it.
    Then I bought a Fox Flux helmet.

    How can you say that when you have no experience with their products? You've made these claims before, but have also admitted you've never really used anything from Sram except their lowest-end brakes.

    Rode 12 miles in crappy flurry/freezing rain/snow conditions.

    Surprisingly, traction was pretty decent. Only spun on a few uphill logs, still cleared a 32" built-up.

    I have ridden bikes with X3, X4, X5, X7, Elixir 1, Elixir 3. The only reason for this is because the bikes I have test ridden have Shimano.
    I like the 11 speed drivetrains and The forks, but most of their other products (other than XX, XO, X9) are really bad.

    That's like me saying "I have ridden bikes with Tourney, Acera, Altus, and Deore along with Shimano's low end hydro brakes. I like their highest end stuff (that I've only read reviews about), but I'm gonna base my opinions of the company and their products off the crap I have actually used." Kinda dumb, right?

    You are right, I do read reviews. That is how I have learned about SRAM. Their warranty is awesome, but I don't want to buy something knowing that I will probably have to be inconvenienced by bringing it into a dealer. And because I read reviews I bought an XT rear derailleur and brakes because I knew they are awesome and work well.

    BTW I love the Sid!

    That is all ice/frost/snow, except what is obviously mud. We rode all trails. Bike looks beautiful now, after it all melted!

    The logs and roots were surprisingly tractable, rocks - not so much!

    Rode 21.1, half in 40-45 mph winds. Rode around a tree that blew down and a big chunk of concrete some jackass threw on the trail. Spent the second half of the ride hanging on and hoping the wind wouldn't knock me over.
    The most expensive bike in the world is still cheaper than the cheapest open heart surgery.

    Today I stayed home, and looked for all my cycling gear in boxes(I moved a month ago). I rode Monday and Tuesday... the sit bones are a little sore from not being on a bicycle in several months.

    I just came back from an epic night ride in the mountains. We started to climb at sunset and blasted down the mountain in total darkness with only our headlights leading the way. Bam! Awesome! :-) I LOVE MOUNTAIN BIkING!!!!!!!!!
