    With stop watch did 39 minz to top tree and beyond. Made it to midway tree around 22. Strava tells a different story though.

    Congrats squashyo. Integrity Rules all and the stopwatch is golden. In my book you have both.

    That's actually counter to what gps/strava does. To time myself up a hill with a stopwatch, I press reset, press start at the start (while trying to hold the handlebars). Then at the finish line, press stop.

    If there's 5 hills in a ride, do that 5x.

    With gps/strava, I just turn the thing on when I leave the house, keep it in my pocket and turn it off later. Every hill is recorded. So it can be less intrusive if you want it to be.

    Where is the scale picture of? We demand cold hard facts. I would love to try a 29er up there sometime just to see if there would be a difference. I have heard all the blah blah about rolling stuff but I need to experience for myself.

    I might be more concerned about the lack of a skewer myself. I mean come on now, the lengths people will go to save 100 grams! I feel like this is one of those kids "Highlights" magazine puzzles- find what is wrong in this picture.

    This is the latest in hub magnetic induction technology. It allows skewerless atachement and the braking is internal in the hub performed by regenerative coreless motors.

    Do you mean a servomechanism regeneratively controls motion by a brushless coreless axial-field motor, exerting torque thru its permanent-magnet disk rotor, resulting from synchronized polyphase sinusoidal stator currents, controlled by a switching controller responsive to input commands and to Hall-effect transducer signals that vary sinusoidally with rotor angle and respectively correspond to stator phases?

    Correct sir. This guy designed it for me.

    Auto correct just exploded! Let me run some numbers on this and give you some specs- yeah ok so I just ran the numbers and it is good to go. Squash, a random drawing has you going first on this thing. Just watch the transducer, might stick a bit. I did notice that the description you gave sounds exactly like the technical specs of the Jack Lalane ultimate juicer. Is this just coincidence?

    Not surprising. When Jill was racing Cat1/Pro on the road, she was a great climber.

    And, this place has gone all topsy turvy on me. years ago, I used to be the only one who cared about climbing. Now I don't give a damn and just want the DH fun, and you guys want to climb.

    I am going to try this tomorrow on the Mensocycle. This will be the first time the Mensocycle has seen a ride since the Howell Mountain Challenge. Surely Menso’s good karma/vibes are still a part of this bike, and will give me the required mental projection for a successful 20/40 run. Film at eleven.

    Good luck on your run. You may find it slightly addictive. ...I have tried for the sub 20 only so far but I'm shaving seconds off. Round # 3 is soon and I can't wait.

    19:42 to the tree using the stop-watch. Hopefully, that is enough margin for the Strava segment!

    who created this segment, anyway? not only does it end way after the tree, it seems to start before the gate.. so make sure you sprint through the entrance!

    If today's ride is not sub-20 then I will simply define my own segment and call it done! I have no immediate plans to go back to that "trail". I have lap markers at the start and end that will make it trivial to define this segment accurately.

    Nice time UK! You got me by 8 seconds. Not sure how it was for you but it was very hard for me. Nice time and congrats on that for sure.

    + 1 and congrats on your sub 20 time UK. I just got back from a swing at the sub 20 myself but missed. 20.54 is all I could muster. I will have hell to pay to get under 20 ..... but don't count me out.

    I created a segment called Kennedy PT (Potty Tree) that starts a hair after the porta potty and right at the tree. Created using fully zoomed in satellite view, so should be about as accurate as we can get. Should reduce everyone's time by about 28 seconds... (got me down to 20:28)

    Paul: this puts you at 19:51...congrats! heh

    Thanks! We're practically at the same time then. I found it tough. It is depressing watching your average lap speed start off at the 12+mph level and then fall relentlessly down below 7mph, knowing that you have to do something close to 6.8mph to make the time. It does feel pretty comparable to a 20 minute OLH in terms of effort, though I'm certainly losing time and wasting energy on Kennedy due to lack of MTB skills. After the ride I took my bike straight to the shop to finally get my fork serviced/fixed. Anyway, I'm done with this club. Next time out with the MTB I will be exchanging the pain for fun.

    Thanks for putting up the Strava graph Marco.... since I don't use Strava. I always put my back wheel against the gate and stop my watch as I pass the tree. Looks like you are close to getting it done. -Ben

    My attempt today only yielded a 22-ish 40:

    In my defense, I sort of shot my wad early riding the 7+ miles from my house to the Kennedy trailhead. Had I throttled back a tad surely I could have gained one minute up to the tree. Back again Sunday morning I guess.

    Nice run LP. 7 + miles is too much warm up for sure. A 15 minute break at the trailhead before starting may help but getting a lift to the trailhead will seal the deal for you. A sub 20 tree is proving to be pretty tough even by itself. Good luck Sunday....may see you out there.

    Yeah, I just felt too good to rest, I suppose, so I just used the portapotty and dove right into the climb right after. I should have known better.

    Perhaps you and I ought to meet up for this tomorrow morning. This ride will be beneficial for both of us—when sprinting is an option, that will give me an advantage to get slightly ahead, but you will inevitably catch up to me no matter what with your light-as-feathers bike. Say, I dunno, 9:00ish??? I’ll be on the “lightweight” Mensocycle (cheap components = not as light as when Menso owned it). This time, no waiting for others, as that proved futile for the rest of my day’s planned activities (of course, plans made by my wife )

    Lemme know via PM.

    Looks like my PM is not going through. I had already made plans with a few buds going so tamale is no good for anything super fast. I will also not be fast enough for you now that you have gears and a lighter bike than the tractor.

    Sort of made it today—got a 21:30-ish/39:56:

    <iframe height='405' width='590' frameborder='0' allowtransparency='true' scrolling='no' src='http://app.strava.com/rides/2157665/embed/b85a869acce914860c1c17ff9603f1e69dcdf8d7'></iframe>

    Which means I need to hammer even harder up to the tree, finding one and one-half minutes to shave off. Sure seemed faster than it was though. Maybe this Friday I’ll try it again. Funny thing, once again, just as my ride the other day, I felt my second wind give me wings on the back half of Kennedy rollercoasters out to Woods. LOL, could have used that energy burst earlier on, perhaps on the way to the tree.

    Which means I need to hammer even harder up to the tree, finding one and one-half minutes to shave off. Sure seemed faster than it was though. Maybe this Friday I’ll try it again. Funny thing, once again, just as my ride the other day, I felt my second wind give me wings on the back half of Kennedy rollercoasters out to Woods. LOL, could have used that energy burst earlier on, perhaps on the way to the tree.
    Congrats LP... on your Sub 40 run .Heck you still had 3 seconds to spare. Wish I had something to report. Thanks for posting it up.

    My first attemp

    41:26 to the top...

    Damn, I had no idea I was even going to be in the ballpark. I think I should be able to get the under 40:00 before T-day, but not sure about the under 20:00 to the tree. This was also after working a pretty physical day today.

    Although I've got to be up there for guys that are over 200lbs, as I am at 225... Gonna ride this 2 times a week till I get it.

    ElHombre has one more deal left for you. See my revised original post. The 20-40-20. Since we are riding buds....you lead I follow ....I know that you do the reverse of this almost every ride but this one may even challenge you bro ! More personal glory down the road for Pmarshall of course also.

    We could go this Friday evening for a Pre-ride on the dog meat reverse, just to see where we
    could hammer and where we recover, its been at least 2 years i dont go that way! And then I check my schedule and i let you know when im doing it on "against the clock" mode!

    It may rain on Thursday and Friday though. I of course can't hang with you but other faster riders may want in. If its not for time maybe I join in. Are you planning a Friday ride anyway ? If so what time do you normally show up there. I'll pray for rain in the meantime!

    20-40-20... that is going to be a tough one. Hopefully Dogmeat shapes up a bit after some rain. I climbed it last weekend and it is a mess... dry and super loose from the MPOSP tractor. It will be tough to hammer up it in it's current condition.

    You are right and I think the whole place is getting really loose. Looks like the way to get a sub 20 on Dogmeat is to walk/run the super steeps and then you can keep some speed up. Rain on Friday may fix things right up.
