    Maiden voyage, for me and the bike. Hit just south of 9 miles...had a goal of 10 but I ran out of beginner trails and especially with getting tired, I shyed away from the more advanced trails in the same park.

    Going back tomorrow, probably a different park though.

    Got them installed and broken in per Avid's requirements. Had to work late, so no ride.

    Should be raining today and tomorrow, so looks like Saturday will be my first chance to ride.

    Took the GF out and we did our first trail ride of spring. She has new clipless pedals which she did really well with, only had a few spd crashes, nothing serious. What was funny we hit the trail and we were not 7 seconds in and OTB she goes. I was how in the hell did you do that its flat. Well there was this crazy ass mouse running around in circles so I swung right around him and carried on, she seen and and instead of avoiding him she grabbed a hand full of brakes and well you know what happens when you do that.

    Made my way to the trails for the first after a moderate quad contusion 9 days ago. The leg is still really stiff but I put in about 20 miles. The only problem is that I don't know what slowed me down, the leg or the new Kenda Slant Six tires. I had been riding on Klimax Lites which was great on concrete and hard pack but decided on making the move to a bigger contact patch. I may switch back and compare the two when my quad is 100%

    I didn't do anything per se. I'm just waiting impatiently for the LBS to call and let me know my bike is done.

    Uninstalled a bunch of parts to tie some decent sized zip ties on my internal routed cable housing, to better suspend it, so the housing wouldn't knock against the inside of my frame's tubing when I hit something hard.

    Played with headset tightness. Rolling with a loose headset (minimal torque, just to eliminate play) felt weird! My bike was wandering all over. I was able to adapt, but ended up tightening it a bit more.

    I went around aimlessly in a 1/2 mile loop around my neighborhood repeatedly until sundown after I got home from my school, I probably went around 30 times.
    Also, installed new stem.

    How do you like the bike? ....and if you don't mine me asking, what are your human dimensions? (height/weight). My brother is about to pull the trigger on that bike and get rid of his BMX. We are large folk...I'm 6'5'' 240 (247 last week what what), and he is 6'3'' 220................I'm curious to get some real world feedback. **If he gives up I'll have two bikes...shhhh....quiet....***

    The snow has finally melted, and the gravel has nearly dried up. 29" bikes climb amazingly, and no matter what some people say, they accelerate very quickly, are incredibly fast, and can turn within a percent of of how a 26" bike can turn.
    I found this all out on my 2013 Cobia today

    Just now saw this. I really like the bike so far, I'm more than satisfied with Airborne. The fork is the weak spot, but everyone already knows that. I'm 5'10 and 195, the bike is an 18 inch. At your sizes, I'm guessing the fork would need upgraded ASAP. Mine is going to be upgraded as soon as I can sneak it around the misses.

    rode a rail trail with some friends and found a pretty sweet horse/bike trail with some moderate jumps. Needless to say we spent more time there than the rail trail

    Took the rebuild out for it's first ride, did a 25 mile road ride. All went well except I forgot to torque on the crank bolt and my cranks came lose. Good thing a friend lived at the turn around point and had an 8 mill allan key and I could fix it, stupid set in my pack only has a 6 as the largest. Left the house it was windy but warm, once I hit the lake and turned around the temp dropped rather sharply and had a cold ride back. Best part was head wind all the way there and being the kind person mother nature is changed wind direction so I had a head wind all the way back. I did however beat the thunder and lightning which rolled in shortly after I got home. Love those ahh **** here comes the weather rides, summers ok but early spring time and getting soaked equals ubar suckage.

    Rode 1 mile around my neighborhood on some tough hills. Went to my battojutsu class came back and rode another mile with my kids. Finally starting to look like spring here although it was still only 32 degrees when we went. (at least the sun was shining!)

    In between trips, 5 neighborhood boys on bikes came by and my son rode for a bit with them. He had a great time with just the guys. I found out later he had his first bike wreck and survived.

    Rode ~8 miles after work then chased down an annoying creak that turned out to be in the headset.

    Did a 10 mile ride and with about .5 miles left something borked in my drivetrain destroying my rear derailleur, chain, and bending the crap out of my rear hanger on my old steel back up bike. Since I didn't have far to go I just zipped tied everything out of the way, dropped the seat, and kick biked it back to the car. Was a decent ride till then.

    Noticed my rear wheel was rubbing on the frame when applied some torque on the pedals. Pulled the QR about a quarter of the way and felt a bit of resistance. Rode five minutes to my LBS and bought a new skewer. Pulled the old skewer all the way out this time and three quarters of the axle came out with it. Mechanic came through with the assist and had me rolling in less than 30 minutes and he only charged for parts

    Just finished building a trail at my house. I anticipate riding the trail tomorrow. It isn't too long, but it was as long as I could make it. A road was in my way.

    Re: What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Rode my new Trek Mamba for the first time..for about 3 minutes. 1 minute: "Wow, this is nice." 2nd minute: Realized gear setup isn't exactly right. 3rd minute: Fell over in the grass turning when the bike jumped a gear.
