    Spent the weekend building up the bike frame I just bought (used) and took the "new" bike for a 6.5 mile shakedown.

    Shibi, that's freakin sweet!
    Me? Well, Ihad it tuned and new pedals put on. Then wrecked and took a pedal to the shin. Then rode it for 5 miles. Then washed it and put on my new Spok lights. Solid day!

    I thought excuses belonged in the "What stopped you from riding today" thread?

    Did my first endo in 16 years today.... this was a trail beside a relatively busy road on my return so everyone could see it. Dusted myself off, waved at the car at the stop sign, took a bow and went on my way. LOL

    ...also did 8.25 miles today. Mix of trail and climbs.

    I love the white water center. IMHO it's one of the only things worth going to the Charlotte area for.

    Everything else I can do in Columbia, SC which is only 50 minutes from my front door.

    Today I overcame a rock stair step on the trail. Hard to see in the video but you drop in then hop wheel onto the first step of the rock and then choose a line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knl2NKzQhvM&sns=em

    Climbed for 2.5 miles before my front tire went flat 10secs into the downhill part. And then find out I brought the wrong spare tube.

    So basically got to walk down the hill carrying my bike. But got a nice shot before the mayhem started.

    I want to get a ride in before work in the mornings so I went scouting for a 1hr route. Found it. Met a fellow rider, really nice guy, told him about MTBR forums. I conquered a hill that has been kickin my arse. Adjusted my retarded derailer for the millionth time. Good times!

    Prepared myself to do a faceplant, and then went for my first clipless ride ever. I was a little nervous about going clipless at first but I think I'll be fine.

    Took an 8.5 mile trail ride up to the San Tan mountains and climbed Maricopa trail.

    Realized I dropped my cell phone when I got down, tried to turn back to look for it, lost balance, could not unclip, went SPLAT into the ground. Walked the bike back up, found phone (whew).

    The view was great though.

    Got a babysitter, rode with my wife and 2 other Durango Bike Chicks(TM) from my driveway over to the Colorado Trail, up to Gudy's Rest. Then back down to an ATM in town to get cash for the sitter, and rode home.

    Rode the fatbike. Tried one techy uphill thing 3 times - finally lost a tiny bit o' skin on the 3rd failed try. 19 miles, pretty quick, mellow ride, 2,200 feet of climbing, and perfect weather. And my 3 yr old daughter was stoked to show us her purple fingernails when we got home.

    Life's good.

    Spent too much time on disposable pedals

    Installed 10-24 x 3/8" allen set screws where the cast-in pins were wore/broken, cleaned and packed the bearings, installed o-rings to keep the crap out and then gave them a light coat of paint knowing full well the paint will wear off quickly.

    All on a $15 pair of pedals??????

    Rode the furthest in the mountains so far. Got lost trying to find the path up to a nice, smooth, rolling downhill section with sharper corners than I have ridden so far. I hiked the bike up through a very steep area, hiked it back down though a rock-lined ditch once I realized my mistake. One day, I know I can ride that area, but I am not there yet... Found the rolling section again, it was pure joy. I had a big stupid grin coming down, even though it had the terrifying hidden kitty litter sandy spots. Just bombed down it and hit a new personal best off-road top speed

    Wiped out twice on the trip, the first time falling since I first began riding almost two months ago. I just lost control on a flat section trying to power through some sand and tipped over. Speed was really low because of the sand, so no biggie. Then I launched myself across a sidewalk and into a bush trying to taker a tight s-shaped corner too tight and too fast. I barreled into one bush, and got thrown off across the path into another one. I giggled, cause it was kinda fun to fly like that, and the only thing hurt was my pride from falling while riding on the freaking sidewalk.

    I am glad I got all my knee pads and elbow pads last week

    Best ride I have had yet!

    Looked at it sitting forlornly in the corner, checked the surf, then paddled out and let it gather dust. Since I moved to a place with regular waves biking has taken a back burner.

    Learned I need a longer straight stretch after a long downhill and a small natural ramp on my fresh cut trails. I flipped over the bars but didn't hit the stump which is good. Felt like a kid again.

    Had a great ride today with great friends! 7.5 miles of wet, pine strewn sandy trail, with a wee bit of mud...felt like about 20 miles though!
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!

    Got in a quick 9 miles on some technical, leaf covered single track at Independence park in Pekin IL. before church.
    It was pretty cool (38°) and the all of the fallen leaves made some of the trails pretty treacherous. All that aside it was an awesome ride!

    I took advantage of the rare good weather down here, and my friend and I rode a couple of laps on the green trails at a local park after work. We're both very green off road, though we did a little of the easier blue stuff as well. This place has separate warmup and cooldown novice trails - just some winding singletrack - that really gets my attention, for some reason. We rode them a couple of times, hauling ass, even after the sun had pretty much gone down.

    Loving it so far... Need to put more time into it so I can start learning the technical stuff.

    My son & I rode our regular route at our "home" trail last night (SM Park in KC metro area). Trying to steal a few more rides before weather and the time change close us down for the season. Great ride for us... About the fastest we've ever run the loop. Losing light at the end but still felt like we were flying thru there. Makes me a little disheartened to think our first riding season is winding down. just got into MTBing this spring and feel totally addicted now. Looking forward to setting some riding goals for next year though.

    Put my serviced fork back on again, put on a new front rim with brake rotors, no front brakes, only v-brakes on the rear, and rode some kilometers

    That doesn't sound like fun. I'm a long ways from anything but platform pedals for now.

    I changed out the tires on the Fuji tonight, from some Tiandis that it came with to a set of Kenda Nevegals, 2.35 in the front and 2.10 in the back. I'm used to motorcycle tires, which keep their shape even when not mounted. The Nevegals looked funny when I took them out of the packaging, but I figured it out.

    Can't wait to try them out this Saturday, starting to get into the blue trails a little now.

    Almost killed myself again, and this time I got pretty beat up. Hit an unseen rut in the trail and got launched into the air, flew a good 15-20 feet with bike attached to my feet. Broke my cell phone mount, ripped off my left barend, damaging the end of my carbon handlebar, ripped off the back of my headphones/headset.

    I think kneeguards should be my next upgrade.

    Thanks Shibiwan! That's actually my brother's bike. He was nice enough to let me take it to the trails yesterday. Btw, kneeguards sound like a good idea.

    Put air in my tires to practice crashing ... I mean turning.

    10 kms sweet single track. Then had to figure out how to get frozen mud off the bike. Turns out the hose still haven't frozen yet so.... :thumbup:

    10 miles, nothing special, except I was on my bike and in the woods. That is pretty awesome.

    Reassembled it after I took some of its parts to China (was going to put them on a ride there, turns out MTBs are more expensive than most motorcycles there). Today will be my first ride in over 3 months.

    Got back on my bike after the nasty fall last Sunday. Hip still aches a bit, but this time I went up with POC knee pads and butt armor (Troy Lee BP7605) to play it safe. Made it 3+ miles on the mountain trails before the injuries started acting up, so turned around and rode home (another 4 miles). Not bad after a week's break I guess.

    30 miles of mostly single track at Dupont State Forest.
    The trails ranged from moderate to difficult. No idea what the elevation change was but I would imagine a couple thousand feet of total climb.

    Beer well earned today.

    Met up with 5 other guys and had a 10 mile group ride, started with a nasty climb with a rewarding fast flowing down hill single track. Elevation change of 1000 ft .

    Melted wearing too many layers this morning riding to work in 30 degree temps... felt better going home though. Must learn a good combo of gear for cold weather.

    Conquered the 2 obstacles that were keeping me down and I didn't pop off my bike once except for drink breaks. Felt really good about that, one was a 30° that turns into a 45° uphill slope and the other was about about the same except it was 10feet higher and a flat spot followed by a big honking rock. Then I thought it a good idea to take the long ways home-but then I got chased down by a bulldog, talk about an adrenaline dump. Dressed up nice warm, a little bit sweaty but otherwise not cold.

    Havent been able to ride the last 4 weeks, contracted strep throat beat that after 6 days and then ended up in the ER with intestinal bleeding, been messing around for 3 weeks with that alone, the drugs made me

    Got my wheels trued, brakes checked, cleaned and readjusted, front rotor was slightly bent (now fixed), replaced the chain and cleaned/readjusted drive train. Then I rode it about a mile to shake it down.

    I found out that riding on the grass side of the curb down the street was quite fun and a bit of a workout too! I am unclear on how people felt about a clyde blazing across their lawn along the street...but no one yelled or took a pot shot at me so I figure it was all good...
    Remember when we were kids and our Mom's said we could not play in the mud? I'm making up for it now!!
