    Not exactly today's ride, but Oakeshott reminded me of this one. This was after a 20 minute race after starting off pretty much clean. It was pretty interesting

    Rode 2 loops on one of my go-to solo trails. Couldn't get the boy motivated to get out of bed and ride with me today. Changed my first flat tire ever on the trail about 6.5 miles not the first loop. Not sure if I'm still considered a noob at this point (just started riding earlier is year), but hadn't had a flat while riding where I was equipped to change the tube out. Took me longer to get the Camelbak & gloves off, get the tools & spare tube out than it did to actually fix the flat.

    2011 Spec' Hardrock Disc. with Captain Control 2.0" front and Hardrock'r 1.95" rear. Both tires did well on day 1, day 2 added a lil more snow and more ruts from other riders.

    Day 1 was fantastic i must say. It's totally ride-able. Day 2 added a lil more snow and there were more ruts that could throw your steering off...this was mainly on parts of the trail that were not packed down via sled. So Day 2 was a lil more difficult...doesn't help that i had my DSLR slung around my neck thus i'm not 100% riding.

    Hardpacked snow = fantastic to ride on.

    I am from VT and could hardly ride my bike if I wanted to! I've got nearly two feet of snow on my trails that is not packed down. Even if I tried to ride, my F9 has rim brakes that do NOT stop in the snow. Oh well. I just have to sit and wait for my '13 Cobia to come in to my LBS.

    I walked past mine in the living room and wondered how the front tire could possibly be flat as it's brand new and I just mounted it up with a fresh dose of Stan's three days ago...
    Turns out, I left the presta valve open. Went for a night ride the other night that way. WOOO HOO!

    Did two laps. 16.7 miles. My longest to date. Didn't want to stop, but saw a buddy on both laps, at the same place so chatted, then rode the rest of my final lap back with him.

    I love riding alone at night.. Freaks me out a little, but there's no wild animals to be afraid of where I ride.

    I got a cheap light set up just to see if I was interested. It was enought to get me hooked, I just need a much much better light set up. And I only had handlebar mounted lights so I could go too fast around corners, I need a helmet light.

    Not today but a couple of weeks ago... My son wanted me to pop a wheelie on my 29er, so I did, not being satisfied with the height or distance of it he requested another one. So I gave it to him, unfortunately my shorts got caught on my bike pump, so I lost control and WAM! All pavement

    got out the old haro i had before my giant and took it to the trails. its been close to 2 months since i rode and with the weather being slightly warmer than normal, i took advantage of it, even if it was on my old bike. it was great. also reminded me of how out of shape (cardio wise) that i was.

    Put a type 2 derailleur on and tested it out. Seems to work pretty good. We will see in the long run.

    Rode through some muddy trails. Had fun. Going back tomorrow for more! Hopefully it dries out.

    Buddy gummed up his bike pretty good and got something stuck in the derailer and broke it. Wasn't fun.

    New here and to mountain biking. So, hello guys!

    Went on my first trail ride ever this morning. I had a blast, but man... it really wiped me out. I'm a pretty active guy in decent shape; I box and run and all that so I didn't think my endurance was going to be so poor on the trail. I rode for a measly hour and 20 minutes and am totally exhausted as I type this. Not that this is a bad thing... I did buy this bike (a Motobecane 300ht) to have a fun way to stay active. And I really did have a good time, so it's totally worth it.

    I am wondering if anyone can offer me some tips on how to improve my biking endurance while on some easy trail rides..? Am I wrong to take the approach of just getting out there and riding? Should I start off on the road only or something? Also, I think I wasn't shifting gears at the right times.. For example, I would switch when I hit a new terrain, but I feel like I should be shifting before I actually hit it if that makes any sense. But, I wasn't shifting before because I found it hard to predict or judge what wasn't immediately ahead of my front tire. Any advice is appreciated!

    I use my mountain bike as an exercise machine that comes with perks. 12 miles in 75 minutes after a 3.5 mile run. Very hilly terrain with a lot of soft dirt. Lots of fun.

    It's been raining for days, so all the trails are closed. That left me riding around town. I road around the neighbor and through down town Dallas. Then for kicks, I road up our 8 story parking garage.

    No riding I adjusted the suspension on my new bike and then took it out to ride to find out the rear tire was leaking.

    Maybe tomorrow!

    I rode it in this beautiful California weather(40 degrees). The trail was still partially frozen and made for some scary moments. All in all it was pretty fun.

    Cleaned my rotors and pads from all the muddy, sandy gunk that dried on it since the last time I rode. Tweaked with my handlebar position a bit. De-glazed my braking pads... I can't go riding my back hurts like hell.

    Lots of rain around here this week, so can't really hit the trails. Did a quick pavement ride with my son & nephew today to keep the legs in shape. Nephew is on a Madone 5.2 carbon, son is on a Trek 2300 AL road bike, and I'm bringing up the rear on my GT Sensor 9r. They totally left me on the climbs (my Sensor is 2x the weight of their roadies), but the 9r actually kept pretty good pace on the downhills.

    I turned around yesterday because the trail was too muddy and today it's raining so I got to run the stairs in an athletic center.

    Learned how to rebuild a Revelation air u-turn. Much easier than I though it would be.

    Now to deal with stuck Elixir calipers. Ugh.

    Still running my stock cane creek headset loose caged bearing on my 2010 hardrock build. Running a 2012 rockshox recon solo air set to 5" travel. Suspension leaves a little to be desired as it is only turn key lockout. My question is should. Upgrade to a cane creek s-8, forty series or should I upgrade my fork with a argyle motion control damper with low speed compression dampening and flood gate adjustment. Just not sure how much abuse stock headset will take

    Rode a flat trail today with my buddy on his road bike. Think I wiped out more on this ride than any other (I was just doing stupid stuff off the trail)

    Rode in light,slippery snow on my older 26er. That F9 is still fun! I think that I froze my fork, but I don't care because I prefer this bike rigid.

    Walked by my bike that is parked in my basemen to get the mail. Sad that there is still snow which means no biking

    Knocked another 2 lbs off the Raleigh, still heavy at 30.6 lbs. Hopefully I'll find some time to ride today in these nice 60F temps.

    New tires, tubes, saddle, pedals, stem.

    Went to Franke Park with hopes to ride some trails....went about 50 feet and turned back as it was way too muddy. so instead I went up and down the soap box hill that the trail also hits for a workout. the grass all around was nice and hard

    Incorrectly installed the right pedal. I rode for about an hour before I noticed it was loose. Threads on my crank arm are basically gone. What is the best/cheapest way to fix this? (2007 rockhopper)

    Fmeasyre the thread pitch on the bolt but a tap at the auto store and re thread the whole. It may take because of the aluminum but if not helacoil it. Also found at auto parts store and will come with the right tap and helacoil installer

    I rode up something and then back down something else. Some spots on the descents were really bumpy so my hardtail was bouncing all over the place. I smiled the whole time. I tried not to laugh in case anyone would hear me and think I'm a lunatic.

    its great when you go trucking past someone on their FS cackling like a loon on your hard tail.

    Finally got to ride on the trail after having several wet weekends. Felt kind of strange since it's been about a month since my last ride, but it was good to finally get out there. I also realized just how annoying it is to pull a water bottle from a cage trapped inside a small frame...

    34 Miles and 3 Hours of Trail Maintenance

    I rode 17 miles out, took a 3 hour break and to bench cut new trail and then rode back.

    Round Trip: 34 miles
    3 hours of bench cutting with 11 other people that will add another 1.5 miles of trail to a 15 mile trail system. This 15 miles of trail will be part of a 70 mile contiguous trail system in within the city limits of Kansas City.

    Other than that, nothing.

    It had been down in the single digits this past week which was perfect for freezing all that mud!! Today was a perfect 25F for maintaining the frozen state of the trails and for riding!

    Thats awesome, we are trying to do that here in Knoxville, our trail building day got rained/ice stormed out today...currently have a 11.5mile and growing main loop(35.5 miles and growing counting secondary singletrack) 10min outside of downtown with plans to expand all the way south to Townsend and the great smokey mountains national park roughly 50miles and all the west to oak ridge(15-20) without ever getting on a main road....hopefully we can get to 70mile loop like what you all have

    Today i put a new to me Maxxis ADVantage 2.1 on the rear of my bike.

    Took the crappy 1.85 1985 chengshin tires of my girlfriends retro build and put my old rear tire(Specialized Pro Adrenaline 2.1[closer to a 2.3]120tpi dual compound) on the front of hers. Hopefully itll give the same effect a fat tires and dim down the bumps that come along with the rigid fork replaced the rear with a Specialized Fast Trak LK 2.0 (60tpi 70a). Since the bike hardly ever leaves pavement this is overkill but the tires were spares and they get put to good use.

    When IMBA used to do their report card, they said that Kansas City has the urban trail system in the country, perhaps the world. We have over 150 miles of trail within 45 minutes of downtown KC.
