    Got out in the woods for the first time in two weeks. It was a blast. Been suffering a combination of vertigo and meds. Today was better, I'm off the meds and their side effects and the vertigo is almost completely gone so making sure to wear my helmet for a change got out there. Mostly took it easy. But Strava tells me there was a PR out there.

    One of these days I'll learn to ride casual - like.

    removed the front shifter, derailleur, large and small chainrings. Installed race face 32t chainring. Went for a ride and have found that I love my bike even more now. Next up, tubeless on my Mustang Elite rims.

    I installed a dropper post last week, rode it on Saturday, cleaned it yesterday, and am hoping to ride it again tomorrow afternoon. I just wanna ride more but I'll be busy for the next week and a half. After that, though, I'll hopefully be having actual trail rides every other day for the rest of summer.

    No issues w/your dropper then?

    It was a pain to install, but otherwise it works really well, I am glad I got it.

    found this old pump/dirt track that has been sort of neglected. It is my new home!! I felt like it was 1981 again. Bringing the BMX next time as well!! (Again, sorry for the sideways pix...I still can't figure out why this is happening)

    I did about 25 runs around both the short inner loop and the longer outer loop. Man, I was tired!! Then headed to the skate park for some work on that side of things on the BMX. Great night of riding!

    Bought a 07 Trek 4300 for $80 on CL. Put my old components from a build I stripped a few years ago onto it so I could get back out and ride the local trails. Next will be a middle of the road fork and new tires once the budget allows.

    I went on a little bike ride today, just under two hours long - brought some friends along that didn't quite enjoy the trails. Of the 6 of us, 4 of us had fun so that's a bonus! Also I tried the GoPro camera on the handlebars, too, for the first time on a trail. Too bad I angled it too far down, but it was fun watching the videos. Aaaaand this is my first post - I need to learn more about my new bike so I'm hoping to do so by reading and posting here in this forum. :)

    Thanks! Appreciate the feedback. I still think I could of done better but I'm happy with it anyways. I have more videos of that day, but they take so long to upload. Maybe I'll post another soon :)

    Edit: I happened to upload another while I was away from my computer. I like this one as it shows another side of the trail and a different view. https://youtu.be/MuL41v20yyk

    Bought and installed new seat. Previous owner had a wide coil schwinn comfort seat. Found this velo for $5. We will see how it rides soon.
    Also in the background, got a carrier for my wife's car for the boy's bike. For those stroller derbies.

    Been working on convincing the wife to try MTBing with me for awhile. Finally got her to go for it and buy a true mountain bike.

    We went to a new trail yesterday and had fun learning it together. Other than one long, rocky section I think she enjoyed it. (I loved the rocky part so all good for me as well).

    Somehow we ended up coming out of the woods and stumbling into the little Mt. Ararat historic church area. Never even knew about that. Pleasant little addition to the ride.
