    I touched it. Just bought it last weekend. Haven't ridden a mountain bike in ~20 years. Shoes arrive today, picking up a Thule Sidearm tomorrow since it's a lefty, hopefully I can ride this weekend.

    I set it up on a trainer to help me recover from a knee injury. Only light spinning for now per the MD instructions.

    Beat my old lap time around my favorite trail today by a FULL 2 minutes! Its a 4.3 mile loop of single track with lots of short but steep hills and winding trails. Old record was 29mins 50sec and I just blew that out of the water with 27mins 44sec.

    Trail is Preddy Creek in Charlottesville, VA. Used the Preddy Creek loop with the advanced trail added onto it.

    Newbie here and to Mountain Bikes. Used to race BMX as a kid 20+ years ago and then did some road biking in there for a little bit. Bought my bike via craigslist over a week ago and have finally found some time to ride it. Have a good network of local trails and got this point after only being on pavement for .25 to .5 mile or so. Total trip was 7+ miles (turned on gps too late!) with a mix of singletrack up and downhill, jeep paths, a full on dirt road, and then some pavement to get back home quicker.. Sadly had to push her up some of the single track hills, but that will change soon enough I hope.

    Wrecked my bike in the most colossal wreck that I have ever have in my life. It was all started by a stump that might have measured 3" tall and 1.5" across. Small enough that I did not see it but big enough to stop the bike dead in its tracks. The bike ended up with a nice 2" scratch. I may have 2' on all of my arms and legs. I guess that is why there is a beer forum!

    I got some used Specialized tires that are 2.30 and mounted them on my regular wheels which was normallya 1.95. I didn't think they'd work but they did. Oh new slime tubes also, getting ready for a thorny desert.

    Took my bike to the shop. I bought a computer a couple weeks ago, and I couldn't get it to work. I went to he shop to have them look at my install to make sure I didn't make a mistake. The mechanic couldn't get it to work either. I left it there and will call back tomorrow. Hopefully they just put a new unit on there and call it a day.

    Got lost for 20 min on my old schwinn mesa hardtail. I started riding 2 weeks ago. This trail I wasn't familiar with and was primarily made up of rock gardens and hardest climbs I've yet to encounter . Pushed myself through it and used the remainder of my leg strength to wash my bike when i got home.

    I'm going to ignore the misuse of meme, and just say..... this is not funny.

    Not much. Went about 9 miles IN THE RAIN to some trails and hiked them. Crashed good on the way out. Not otb, but I have some serious bruising and holes in my leg. I bled a lot.

    I started putting my old bike back together (Got a new frame and everything from my old bike got moved over). It has been a fun process building up my new frame and putting the stock components back on my old frame. I have learned a bunch.

    After finishing an interview at a summer camp I had 1 hour to burn before I had to head off to the doctor's office. Had my bike in my car with helmet and gloves. Wen't for a brisk 9 miles ride in my interview clothes. Butt hurts pretty bad now though but as always it was worth it.

    Getting my 1993 Cannondale Deltav 1000 back today and going to restore the poor beast, might throw some slicks on it and use it just for street. The poor girl has seen her fair share of trials and needs a gentle retirement.

    I recently bought a 1988ish Specialized Hardrock that I put Hybrid tires on to keep my Marlin off the pavement. Yesterday I did 13 miles on it. Riding smooth for 20 some years old.

    My usual to and from work commute on my Hardrock. Also rode over to the LBS to pick up some tire levers so I can get my new set of Ardents installed. Installed my new grips (ODI Rogues) when I got home and will get the Ardents join when I return to the garage.

    Trails too muddy, so I rode 15 miles of fire road. Saw a number of mushroom hunters parked along road. Came up to a truck, doors open, a pair of feet and the legs of some pants. I thought my bike was quite loud, but as I pedaled by, she didn't even know I was their. She looked quite fit. He was in the passenger seat on the phone. Gave me a pleasant nod and smile.

    Taking the wife mushroom hunting tonight. Wish us luck.

    Rode it! Finally hit the trail, it's the first time since December. Great to get back out on the trail! I've been riding a lot, but just on road, esp. since I got a 'cross bike last month (I love that thing!).

    Trails are more fun though, and a MUCH better work out!

    Installed a set of Maxxis Ardents on my Hard rock 29er. Such a huge improvement over the Fastraks! Can't wait to ride them on the mountain come Tuesday.

    Cleaned her up and scrubbed the drivetrain really good. Found out I have broken a tooth on my large chainring. Called my LBS and they will order me a new one on Monday. Thinking about replacing the middle since I have it all apart anyway.

    Normal, but it comforting to know bikes don't matter that much, it's the rider

    I broke my 16 year old Grip Shift x-ray shifter. I called my LBS and they had a new shifter in stock, so I was in and out in 15 mins.

    Tried to get a friend of mine through Skeggs yesterday but he's apparently more out of shape than I am! So I took him through a beginner track near Palo Alto this morning. I played on the dirt jumps.

    And looking into hydraulic brakes for my 29er.

    Fianlly back to warm, went out for loop tonight with the GF, wasn't the fastest loop but she loves to ride with me. Sometimes you just have to give a little, I will hammer one out Friday and fill my need for speed.

    Met a rider in his mid-50's documenting a small injury he got on the trails for his wife who is a Physician in Mexico City. I offered him some gauze I had in my bag but he claimed to be completely confident in his bodies ability to heal itself. He told me about his life and how this was his 15th American city to live in as he traveled the world. Before we parted way he asked to take a photo of me for his wife. I rode for about another hour before making my way back into the city and noticed he was still on the trails.

    Went to the "trails" at the reservoir on Cox District Road in Woodstock, VT. I didn't find any trails other than a logging road, so I went home. On the way back top my house, I rode my 2013 Cobia from the Town Hall in Pomfret down to my house. At one point I hit 37 mph riding down the hill. My 29er was very stable, and I was able to turn a corner going 33 mph. I love my 29er.
