    I went out for a very short 2 mile ride. I wanted to test the bike before the race tomorrow. The new chain doesn't like the 4th gear from the top so I will have to avoid that one. Too bad I got caught in the dark so I couldn't ride farther.

    i went on my first "real" ride with my new bike. 10 miles from one end of Golden Gate Park to Ocean Beach. 10 miles of singletrack and fireroads with some crazy drops...well crazy to me at least. HELLA fun!

    New Bike!

    I did whatever I wanted to this past weekend on my bike! Just picked up a new Superfly 100 FS 29er! Pic file is too large to upload so I will work on a new one. I have a new energy again and some nice hardware to go with it! I will send some trail pics when I get some, just wanted to share!

    Yes I am. Just got back into biking this summer after a few years off. Ride with a group of friends from work. We don't have an advanced group or anything, but still fun. We have to push a lot and we always seem to stop and talk when riding some, but like I said...still fun!

    PM me on here. We typically go in the evenings cause of work schedules. I think we are planning a ride at Barboursville Park on Thursday at 6:00 PM, and then most like Beach Fork on the weekend is what we typically have been doing.

    Decided to go for a quick ride after work and got stuck out in a hailstorm. That'll teach me to check the weather before I bolt out the door next time.

    Had the best ride of my life last night. Everything just clicked. Cleared a line of table tops as smooth as melted butter on top a pick ol' pile of flapjacks...yea. Of course, I had a fall (or two) but its all part of the fun!

    Hit a short rocky trail in about 95+ degree temps with my son tonight. Was up way too early this morning, not enough food (I guess) during the day and hot, muggy conditions so I was a hurtin' unit at the end of the ride. Had my Camelbak and tried to stay hydrated but ended up flat on my back in the trailhead parking lot while my son loaded the backs on the rack for the trip back home. Yes... he's a good son! Thinking I'll probably take tomorrow off from the trails... another 100+ day forecast for tomorrow.

    Ordered a set of Cont Trail Kings and the DT Swiss UST kit, cant wait to make the switch.

    I also went for a ride earlier but that ended quickly, snapped the rear derailleur off after 2 or 3 jumps.. Crossing my fingers that the shop can get it back to me before my work week returns : /

    Went for a twelve mile power line ride on my Superfly 100. Almost got run over three times by the same two dizzy chicks driving some kind of four wheel vehicle way to fast and with reckless abandon. The passenger actually took pictures of me with her phone.

    Rode out farther than usual for me, about seven miles (I'm still a beginning rider). Then got way over-heated due to my overkill of a helmet and ended up having a bad ride.

    Did my first jumps over logs, stumps, rocks, drop-offs and NEVER fell or crashed!! The irony is I fell a couple of times on easy parts of the trail. Go figure. No matter the ride was awesome as always.

    Well, Sunday is a regular work day in my part of the world, so no ride for me today. Instead, I bled a hydro brake first time. Loss of virginity went pretty smoothly, I didn't even make a mess in my storage room. Quite a success (and a big sigh of relief, I hate works that take patience and precision).

    Nice photo. I'm from that area or thereabouts. Good ol' SoCal. How are you liking that Forte Classic saddle? Mine is a huge upgrade from the numbing stock saddle. The price was right too.

    We rode the trails around here early, quick 6 mile out and back. It's going to be 103 here today.

    Did this today, the best climb I've done so far, so of course, the best descend so far.

    Seat is great. The gooch relief cut out really works great. and it has nice give.

    Im actually from Chino but i have a friend that lives in Hemet so i go out there to ride. The weather wasnt to bad yesterday but still hot. great ride though. I like Hurkey more then the Hub. Do you go there often? I dont go very often and when we go its usually on sat. However, we are considering doing Sun. mornings too. maybe ill see you out there sometime.

    im jealous of your bike and that trail.
    soon as i get my full time job, a GT force 1 or 2 will be on my list
    it looks sick. i crave a trail that last more than ten miles here. most trails in my area are only 5-10 miles and go up and down constantly. its deff a work out, but i'd love to have some trails like CA, UT, and CO have

    Today I finished the Rapha Rising challenge on my Surly Ogre. Took it out and did hill repeats across cobblestones, broken pavement, a little light trails and the like to clock up the last chunk of climbing. I'd used it to complete the entire challenge, because someone at work complained that their bike was too heavy to do it.

    Had my worst ride yet. My son & I took the bikes down to a local trail. Pretty rocky, but we've been on it several times before. Unfortunately, I've been working about 70-80 hours a week for the last month and probably was way too worn down to properly tackle this trail. Crashed within the first 10 minutes (sloppiness on my part, clipped a tree with my bar). Constantly dabbing in spots I rarely had to before. Went down again within another 10 minutes. Lack of focus, tired mind, tired legs, tired arms. Bad combination. My son was pretty much leaving me in the dust, but just couldn't seem to pick up the pace. At about the farthest point from the trailhead, something felt wrong on the back end. Hopped off & saw the back tire almost completely flat. Tried to air it up to see if it would hold air. No dice... No spare tube. No more riding for the night. Son finally rode back & found me walking the bike. Sent him on ahead and ended up walking about 2 1/4 rock-strewn miles back to the car. Treated myself to Starbucks on the way home. Only redeeming feature of the whole evening. Better luck next time I hope.

    I upgraded my tires. I had the factory specialized tires on it, and bought Kenda Nevegal 2.35 and put on it. Let me tell you I was riding stuff I normally wouldn't touch. I was riding up rocks and taking corners with no problem. But holy crap those tires wear me out. I can't understand how something so minor as changing the tires can make such a huge difference in how much strength it takes to ride. I also felt like I was riding really slow. But since I prefer more technical stuff, I am thinking once I get used to them they are going to work out a lot better for me than the other tires did.

    Took a spill on a low-speed, off-camber and rooted hairpin that's been defying me for months. Dab city. Thankfully, pine needles lubricated the slide.

    Picked up a Titus Pluto low-riser in town and ordered stem for same. Ok, "stems"; deciding on a stem fitment is like picking an ice cream, I swear.
    Gunnar Rockhound - Hardtails in Reynolds 853 and True Temper OX Platinum are still a great idea.

    This morning I converted my GF's bike from Gorilla Tubeless back to tubes & added slime. Wheels were stock Spesh/Alex & I couldn't get the rear to stop leaking. On my bike I added a 50/50 Slim & Stan's mix. We are going for a night ride in the desert in a few hours.

    Not much sadly, aside from wipe my bike down and add some air to the tires. I have been feeling crappy the last few days and today it was 100 by 8am. Maybe tomorrow morning if the storms were supposed to get hold off.

    Bought my first MTB today, actually 2 bikes. One for me, a Specialized Hardrock and one for the wife, a Specialized Myka. I rode it up and down the road for a total of about 6 miles.

    I rode 4.5 miles on slightly muddy, and the rocky section of Hillendale. Still trying to get used to the fattires. Loving the ability to ride everything and ride in the mud with no problems especially around corners. It is just really killing me how quickly I get tired. I usually ride 9 miles before feeling like I need a break. I have only gotten around 4 miles the last couple of days. I am hoping it is just riding a different area. No up and down like riding in the mountains so no downhill recovery like usual. Otherwise I am like a noob all over again. All weak and slow.

    I rode another 5 miles or so on paved pathways with my daughter. She's only 5 so its kind of a good thing for me to take it easy and get more familiar tp my new bike.

    Last night I rode around the block twice (1mi each loop) with my five year old, then adjusted my brakes and practiced bunnyhops for a bit.

    Yesterday I took out my new to me (used) bike for the first time. Wasn't able to track the miles today, but Id estimate it to be about 8 miles. Great ride really enjoying the full suspension over my 29er Hardtail. It is currently 1x10 so I struggled uphill a bit, was a lot of work for someone newer and out of shape, but I had a lot of fun. Getting back downhill was a blast!

    Also after the ride I personalized it a bit and swapped out the Stem and some grips on the bike. All in all it was a great day!

    This morning I took my dog for a long walk and then I just took a brisk ride around town. Didn't go too far on the bike. I just wanted to get a feel for it and feel for the shifting. I should have went farther. Not sure why I didn't. Tomorrow I plan to go pretty far. I don't have a cage or lock yet though.

    It was my first time riding the bike and the first time riding a bike in a long time. It was amazing.

    Bonking ... not feelin' well

    Took a 2 hour mountain bike ride on some trails close to the house. This area is called county open land and they added more trails in the last year. Bummer is I just found out they closed it to bikes! I have been riding this trek of woods as long as I have lived here some 20 years.
    This has really put a damper on some good riding close to home. I guess that I will check out other trails
    .

    Went for a one hour ride with a friend. Still trying to learn how to ride a mnt bike. I crashed again. Did not break any ribs this time. I fell of a low bridge. The entrance on to the bridge is after a very tight left hand turn and the bridge is not very wide. Just jammed my shoulder this time. I do see my skills improving though.

    My fiance got me a 9 week old Norwegian Elkhound last weekend. I have been talking about wanting a dog I can train to run with me while I ride. Well he is perfect. He ran behind us for about 3 miles yesterday. It wore his little butt out but he stayed with us the whole time. He is such a great puppy.
