    The best dogmeat video I have seen. The commentators are also top notch! This might sound weird but I feel a whole lot better about cleaning dogmeat now after watching Dirk muscle up it. This video captures just how hard this climb really is and just a bit of sideways can ruin the attempts. Great job to all of you guys today and to JL for getting it too.

    Hehe! I screwed up on the commentary on Marco’s video, as I mentioned “2012 Dogmeat no-dabs”. I should have just said “3rd annual” instead. Oh well.

    Was a great ride today, conditions up Dogmeat were just about perfect. Dirk is a macho studman, as he dabbed about 2/3 or so of the way up, but then took it like a man and went all the way back down and did it again—this time clearing it!

    Yes, yes, yes! I am now 4 for 4 (or is that four for four?) on Dogmeat no-dabs successes… seriously, it’s all in the 26"x3.8" tires, as I really am not as awesome a rider as the rest of you are. So, the list now needs updating. Oh yeah, and add that Jason Yoo fellow (also a trail volunteer dude) to the list along with Dirk and J.L.!

    Great commentary indeed... and video, though the hill looks a lot tamer on it than it feels in real life. You sure this was Dog Meat?

    3 times a Squashyo!

    Cleared it today and by far the worst conditions of the three times! Dry and loose and still steep. Thanks Josh for the tube at the top! I cleaned it and then at the top of kennedy pulled over to pump up the tire a bit. Snapped the stem off and Josh was coming up and donated a tube to me! Thank you, thank you!!!!

    I’d love to get out there sometime this week, perhaps Wednesday or Friday. But would I be a Dog Meat Whore for doing 5 no dabs in a row?

    I might go there on Friday if all works out. I have no bailout granny gear anymore so the possibility of me making this has gone down drastically. I also might skip it and just ride a whole lot better place since this has already been checked off my list. Hmmmm..what to do??

    Why not? .... some of us dig going for personal glory as Paul says. Give them something to shoot at LP ! Bury it I say ... Srlsy ... I'm doing a bit of shoveling on the Kennedy side ya know ! ... 2 in a row several times over the years was all I could do.

    Well… I’d actually been putting some thought into the idea. It will hurt a lot more than on the fatbike though—disregard the 11 pound weight discrepancy.

    We both missed today

    LG man and I tried for the no dab today. I did not have a prayer with the hbc 19t and half crashed on the first steep one right after the first 1/4 mile. He missed the super steep one before the long uphill straight away. Brutal workout no doubt. I was able to clean the rest from this spot from an old pic.Name:  1110120819.jpg

    Idea! Woohoo. I finally cleaned Dogmeat on Thursday!

    Mountain Bike Ride Profile | Dogmeat No dabs! First time! near Los Gatos | Times and Records | Strava

    Add me on this list. I have attempted 4 times in the last few months, always dabbing near the top. Even though it was pretty dry out there, I just slowed down and crawled instead of the usual, trying to scramble up the whole thing. The little bit of energy conservation was just enough to help dig deep and get over the traction /balance/steepness issues at the top.

    Spectacular! Way to keep at it and yes, slow and steady wins the race for me on this one as well. Well done sir...and gave you your first rep point but it's not showing up (say what?). (Also recognizing Paul's 3rd here too. WHO"S NEXT!?

    Is there an easy way to get to the bottom without expending too much energy? I think I've got a shot at it if I hit it fresh enough. Compared it to Sulphur and it's just a bit steeper, but I was also tired when I hit that. I specialize in going up things very slowly but without dabbing.

    Good man! I applaud your desire and the force is strong with you but Dogmeat is quite a bit more challenging than Sulfer...by a long shot. They may be the same height but Dogmeat has much steeper pitches especially at the end which is a very long stretch of pain. I think most of the folks conquering here are on pretty light bikes (aside from a couple of total freak shows). Anyhow, give her a go but it aint no Sulfer...let me know when you head out, maybe I can join you.

    As for getting to bottom without suffering, not going to happen. I think your best bet is to climb/hike Limekiln from the Lexington Resevoir. This is a pretty rocky mess though and it still climbs quite a bit. I prefer climbing Priest Rock from the resevoir. It is the quickest and smoothest route but has some mean pitches that can sap your energy. If you can't climb lower Priest, upper Priest (or Dogmeat) will be close to impossible. If you do head out the try the challenge, use the short reliefs as you climb unsparingly...rest like a MFer (without dabbing) till the next hill hits. On the last climb, just give her all you got. You will see it and say, 'holy ****' but just keep a good, consistant spin, stay left along the buffed out part (ha), and getter done.

    Yeah, the one thing that worries me is spinning the rear tire and losing all momentum, since it looks a little dusty/rocky out there. I really just need to go out and try it once to get a feel. Or borrow someones 20lb 29er hardtail

    Let out a ton of air on rear tire before you try! Sulpher doesn't compare at all. Just go slow and save energy like Josh said. You can do it. I would let you borrow my bike but it is now 1X10 and that won't help at all. Good luck young one!

    Alright people...less than 2 months to go. Just climbed (dodging newts left and right) up lower Priest today and it was super tough. Many thick mud spots really made for a challenging ascent. I figure by this weekend, Dogmeat will be prime! Are we done here or are there anymore brave souls looking to achieve a little fame? Still no ladies representing here as well...sup wit dat?

    Let's do this! Who's next?

    T-Shirt Weather

    I was getting worried I was not going to make it this year - especially with T-shirts on the line. All my buds - lilysdad, Porkstaker, Ancient Rascal made it and were talking about next year. Today, I went up with Ancient Rascal to give it a go and....chalked down a nice clean ride. It was a nice day and fun was had by all (AR was going back for more afterward). I attached some pics courtesy of Ancient Rascal.

    B. Climber is gonna pull a pistol /Scott or a Cannondale tomorrow for a no dab. I told him ... you have to have a T-Shirt bro! Then of course I had to mess with him and dare him to have me post up the 3 pm at Kennedy gate tomorrow ride to the top then down dogmeat and back up no dab. I will be going along to take pics only. Not gonna mess with 32x19 up that for a futile attempt again anytime soon. Yo ... Which bike man and will you make it?3rd Annual Dogmeat No Dab Challenge....ahhhh yeah!-img956749.jpg

    Challenging attempt today for B. Climber

    He sold his c-dale 26er with all the itty bitty gears ... so it's gonna have to be the Scott Scale 29er set up as a 1x12. Not sure what he has but it will be mighty tough running close to 1 to 1. Indeed ... he says he has 36x36. If he can do it with that ... well then he is .... as Eddie Murphy would say .... Hercules / Hercules !

    Next time

    36x36 proved a bit too much for B. Climber today on Dogmeat. Horrible was the word he kept using. Cool that he gave it a shot saying he was gonna try. Most folks get a 22t front ring instead of the 36 he tried with. Good try my friend! 3rd Annual Dogmeat No Dab Challenge....ahhhh yeah!-0313131633a.jpg3rd Annual Dogmeat No Dab Challenge....ahhhh yeah!-0313131632.jpg

    He’s a badass for making it as far as he did with that messed-up “low gear” ratio.

    Sup guys,

    Congrats to all those guys that succeeded at the dogmeat challenge,
    That's very difficult cause its already too dry and I thought it would be easier, but I won't go down without a good fight, I will try again, but next time I will have a 34t single chain ring instead of 36t!

    And A.R on a single speed up dogmeat, he is the real badass!

    Cheers,

    B.C

    Dude, you got this! Looks like you made it pretty far on that gearing system...you seemed to have died where it really gets tough though watch that chuck after the left turn. Got get em buddy!
    I'm not sure how this works.

    I've never cleared it on my hardtail either. Failed with 32/36 a few months ago. Now I'm running 34t up front but I'm a bit stronger. Will try again when my shoulder heals.

    Good lord.

    That was truly redonkulous. I guess riding in from San Jose wasn't the best plan for success! I was working pretty hard from the bottom of Priest Rock and spun out on the first really stout, loose hill on Dogmeat, then I walked--tail between my legs--up the top half of the Wall at the end. I've seen some nasty climbs over the years--and that's one of the nastiest, especially since you can't "tack" up the tough parts at all. Big props to y'all that pull it off.

    Ain't gonna be no rematch. Don't want one...

    You're a sick man, Mr. Squashyo--sick and twisted (which is a really fun trail, btw)!

    Good try though! There are only a few other known south bay climbs that can compete. It is super hard so don't be down about it. Even going up Priest Rock to the trail head has super steep sections. It is a sick and twisted challenge for sure.

    Not enough rain, I believe conditions on Dogmeat are back to impossible again!
    Squashyo you've truly set a high bar, not even twenty of us can do it.
    I think my CB350 got stuck in the same place my recoil does now.

    Here is a partial list of pain-inducing climbing segments here in the South Bay:

    Joice Trail Climb, STCP — 0.1 miles of exquisite pain — 140 feet of gain on loose stuff with a 19.2% average grade
    Boundary Climb, STCP — 0.7 miles of varying degrees of pain — 450 feet of gain on very loose stuff (loose in all the wrong places!!!) with grades exceeding 28% in places
    Coyote Peak to Boundary Climb, STCP — 798 feet in 1.2 miles on loose (in all the wrong places) stuff
    The Three Bastard Brothers (a.k.a. Upper Kennedy Trail), Sierra Azul/Kennedy to Woods — has steep-ass (38%!?!?!?!) uphill and downhill sections that chew you up and spit you out
    Barlow Beatdown, Sierra Azul/Kennedy/El Sombroso — just awful, especially in the summertime — the first 1/10 mile is absolutely messed-up and tourette’s-inducing fun

    I should add the disclaimer, that although some of these are called “roads”, that they are in fact loose surface dirt fire roads.

    i believe the downhills may be worse than the climbs on the The Three Bastard Brothers.

    Good try soldier. She's a monster for sure and the first time out is always rough....though sounds like first and last for you. When all you have in your backyard is long, steep fireroad, you can get pretty good at it. Hope you don't let it beat you though...it's a good goal to push for even though it sucks.

    I'm not sure how this works.

    Side note: I am not getting much traction on Tee Shirt design options so may revert back to beer. The beer was sorta cool because people had to go back up and claim their prize with a photo...thought that was cool. Happy to do shirts still if that's what the people want but I am not sure how to tackle.

    Just over a month to go! Great turn out this year!!!
