    Thanks! bob13 - I'm actually, I've recorded my last 6 rides and it really is a motivator. Hopefully I'll get some miles in tonight if not for sure this weekend!

    was too late to get out on the trails. So I went for a 6 mile ride around the paved paths in my area. 6 miles may not be a lot but its better than not riding at all.

    My Favorite ride!

    I rode Little Cottonwood Canyon here in Utah today, one of my favorite rides. I had my buddy wear the chesty cam, he's on a Santa Cruz Nomad, i'm on a Santa Cruz Bronson.

    I have had a similar experience with RockShox. Sid RCT3 to replace a faulty Recon Silver Tk. RockShox is extremely awesome.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    It has rained all day today - no riding. So I went to the bike shop and got some new handlebars & installed them.

    Carbon Deity 787mm. Look good, feel good, excited to try them.

    Anyone ridden them before? What do you think?

    Bought a partially stripped/wrecked frame & upgraded my bike very inexpensively. Went from grip to thumb shifters, went from 21 to 24 speeds. Recabled everything. Now I actually have some spare parts & a better bike all in one afternoon.
    Tomorrow I change the tires & go for a ride if the wind allows.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Today I rode my first black diamond trail on my newly built gt distortion. It was Ned's atomic dustbin on mount Seymour in north van bc.
    It was awesome and a great test for my new bike.
    Bike handled better than I could ride it


    This is not me but a nice edit of neds

    Bushwacked a new 5 mile loop behind my house. Not super long but has about 1700' of elevation gain and is literally just outside my back porch.

    You know you had a good ride when you fall asleep on a Sunday night and don't wake up for work until the alarm goes off.

    Cheers! After having this rig for a few weeks now I'm absolutely loving it.. It's so damned playful and the harder you push it, the better it rides.

    If you don't mind what/where is the Super D course? I ride Chino Hills all the time - well I do the Carbon Cyn side - Tonight I'm going to try to get into a more difficult section of CC to see how far I can make it.

    That's not bad either - it takes time! I'm no where near where I want to be endurance wise, as well as tech wise.. as the guys that have been going at it for a while say... RIDE!! as much as you can.

    Super D is a combination of XC and Downhill. This was in Fontana, CA. I rode it on Saturday. I did Chino hills on Sunday I love that ride. I tried going up sycamore, off of telegraph - GREAT climb and sooooo beautiful up there. Kinda funny how when I ask locals here (west side of LA) about chino hills they have no clue what I'm talking about. They are totally missing out. Lol. I can't wait to drag some of my ride buddies there to impress them w/ it's scenery.

    Thanks for the reply sroc3 - Wow that's a drive from WLA but yes Chino Hills is awesome and worth the drive- I ended up doing my same route but really interested in in doing that Sycamore route but it was going to get dark on me.

    I just googled Super D and looks like there are some videos I'll check it out.

    In case you don't know Marshall is pretty good (a bit out of my league but I try) and so is Turn Bull Canyon, this one was tough for me because the climb is steep but very very rocky, good rides though.

    Thanks again!

    Threw around a little dirt with my son on the latest neighborhood project. Had a bunch of rain lately, so it was nice and sticky and fun to work with. I'll tell ya, I get as much out of building as I do riding these days. More in some ways.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Actually yesterday but I rode back to the bike store and picked up my co2 charger, plastic OEM pedals and took a rail trail there and back. Good amount of water led to a filthy me. Dirt in my teeth even but fun.

    Got my workout in with a 1 hour climb. Took in the views. Finally saw what my bike was capable of on the downhill techy sections.

    Road riding is boring. I rode up the same road as I did two weeks ago. However my ride was cut short by a sudden downpour, so I had to ride back home. In total 2.5 miles and a fast downhill. When I got home I attempted to fix the squeaking (and very annoying) front rotor, and I cleaned my chainring.

    I went for a ride today.. Jumped over a pile of tree stuff onto some other tree crap.. Anyways, broke my chain and bent it pretty bad. Had to cut off 6 inches in the trail.. Now I'm going to get a new chain. Oh well

    Rode a 10.5 mile loop with nice step technical sections. Twice. On two different bikes. Demo day fun. Furthest I've ridden to date.

    Rode the local backbone trail and finally got over my fear of the switchbacks nailed all of them! Also was the highest "suffer score" to date on my Strava - the great thing is that I was comfortable while suffering Also ranked #12 (coming from being in the hundreds) on one of the loop-segments on Strava!!! Slowly getting stronger!

    Took a little ride through Sherwood Forest. I had to go and visit The Major (Major Oak which is part of the Robin Hood story as well as riding past the Church of St. Mary where Robin married Maid Marion).

    I'm gonna take it out tomorrow and see how it goes. Me and my buddy are gonna do a
    local technical loop, so I'll definitely be giving it some stress. It was too cheap to say no to. Brought my bike down to 26 lbs too, that I like.

    Went for a 15.8 out and back with some side exploring. https://www.strava.com/activities/137906371 Had a rough section of powerline, a few areas I may have gone too fast, and some learning done.

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

    Alright... Well, I definitely abused the fork today. It's pretty f-ing nice. Adjusted the rebound and played with the psi a bit and found a really nice setup. It's light. So light that I had to adjust how I ride. I kept lifting the front end climbing up turns on roots and rocks.. But once I put more weight forward it was pretty stable. So yeah, for 200 bucks it's totally worth it.

    Well, I did a few things this past month besides riding it each weekend at the local trail. I got a Topeak Panoram V12 wireless cyclocomputer:


    I got a new bike stand:


    I got some new ergo-grips:


    And I got a Serfas TSL-1000+ headlight for future night riding. It was a bargain at JesonUSA for $116.

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    First ride on my bike since upgrades and I couldn't be happier. Went from 2X10 with a 24/38 to a 30T front chainring. I think given my less than optimal fitness it's a good compromise. 24 was a little to small and 38 was way too big. I also swapped out my Hayes brakes for SLX, and the difference is night and day. I have a whole lot more confidence that the bike will stop when I squeeze the lever. One finger braking is nice too. I also learned the limits of my Easton EA70 XC today. They are flexy as hell under my considerable size. The first time I felt them give way I stopped because I thought I taco'd the rim. I guess it's time to start saving my penny's for something a little stronger, like Flow EX and Hope hubs.

    Thanks man. Mostly it's been me and couple guys. It's actually a project on town recreation land that I've been wanting to do for years. The area had been roughly excavated for fill at some point, and it's a huge natural skatepark that just needs to be paved with dirt. Town ended up hooking us up with the spot, tools, and 60 yards of dirt to get going.

    The majority has been done by hand over the past few weeks, no small thanks to the legendary patience of the wives. Moving and packing the dirt is a frigging chore, no way around it, but it's a cool feeling when it starts coming together. The fine tuning is the best, it's kinetic sculpture. I really get some sort of 'artistic' satisfaction out of building a chunk of trail that people get a grin out. Every rider should do some trailwork, it's fun.

    One month ago:





    One week ago:







    5 days back:





    2 days ago (I know it's a repeat, but it's my current favorite):



    No more recent pics, but I've gotta say, I'm happily surprised how much has been done even since yesterday. Updates to come I'm sure..

    Put new brake cables on the hard tail.

    Saw the back was almost broken before Mondays ride. Almost rode it anyway, figuring I use the front brake more anyway.

    Replaced the cable and went to adjust the front brake. It was down to only 3 strands left.

    Successfully bled my brake for a second time! I shortened the hose length and thought it would be a good idea to bleed them too.

    Here are some pics of my ride enjoy!!

    Today: 8.5miles @ Bonneli Park - Shorter than my usual 11 but much more technical. It also looks like they worked on the trails which were left w/a lot of thick sand. It was a lot of fun though..... still learning! Did much better through a rock garden

    Removed the reflectors, installed gps, then explored the streets and woods around the house trying to get familiar with the new bike and pedals.

    I would of ridden longer, but had a friend with me who thinks the gym keeps you more fit than cycling or jogging and he stuck around after he pussed out on me.

    Did my first outdoor ride of the season today!
    2 major surgeries over the winter and I've been stuck in my "living"room on a trainer for 6 months. Shouldn't complain too much though, at least I was able to do that.
    Rode my local trails and had a great ride. Saratoga Springs, Daniels Road
    Had a few scary moments (not quite healed up all the way yet...) but got back home relatively unscathed.

    Swamp Pass


    My winter build project.
    Still have some more to do but I'm liking going back to rigid.


    Now that I found this thread I'll get some more interesting photos. Not that a bike leaning on a tree isn't interesting...

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?

    Finally had the time to work on my new bike! I'm just getting into the sport and I picked up a DiamondBack Outlook on Craigslist for 30 bucks. Nothing too special but my budget for a bike was non-existant. After a new saddle, new (to me) tires, a little TLC, and a deep cleaning I think she turned out pretty nice! Only have $45 in it so I am happy with it!

    What did You do today on your mountain bike?-bike.jpg

    Can't wait to actually get out on the trails next week!

    I love weekday rides in the am, its so peaceful. Like therapy when everything else seems so insane. Only got five miles in because of the wind but will probably be able to go out for an evening ride later.

    More progress on my pumptrack project, I'm probably 3/5's of the way done with the basic layout of the main loop, and I've been out there for at least 2-3 hours 14 of the last 16 days after work and home duties. Little rain this week is going to make things perfect.

    One thing I can say for certain - working on bikes is child's play comparitively. I'm pretty sure I could build 10 bikes in the time it takes get one good sized berm or a couple consectutive rollers just right.

    We're in MA, near the NH border. All that dirt is nice screened loam we paid to have trucked in. I built a smaller pumptrack in my yard a few years ago with just material that I dug up myself and my wrists, back, and liver have never been the same; very rocky terrain around here, digging is brutal. This time I'm doing it the right way.

Came across one five foot gator and two snakes on the bike path LOL.. Had a great time but it was alot diffrent riding by myself and there are some parts of this place that are really tricky! But had a great time!!!

    Woke up extra early to ride on my day off to beat the heat. 100 degrees here in Los Angeles right now! Waaaayy too early for this obnoxious heat. Anyway, hit the local trail at about 6 AM in Palos Verdes/Del Cerro park and rode for about an hour and a half. Wish I was still riding right now but if I was I'd turn into a cooked sausage.
