    warfinger, youre in the wrong thread!

    so you're not entirely turned away from this forum:

    11,000 hkd = 1400 USD (I was curious so I looked it up with google)

    and

    i googled the bike under the 'shopping' ability. this model goes for 1400 online, new.
    if everything is stock and new it doesnt seem to be too crazy price.

    when asking for advice its best to put in your own time first. others will be more apt to pay attention to you

    happy riding!

    Late notice: There's an STR ride starting at Blackstar tomorrow morning. Most people (I think) are going up B*, down TLD/Skyline, up Skyline, across the Main Divide, and down Motorway--36miles, 6200 climbing.

    Most people are starting at 7, but my g/f and I are starting at 8. Should be "fun"!

    *** Now we're starting at 10:30 (letting the drizzle stop), and the g/f is "just" going over to Skyline and back.

    I always try to get a few buddies (and trucks) together so we can leave 2+ trucks at the bottom that way we can do several runs. I can fit 5 riders/bikes in my Tacoma. Hit me up on here or text me 626-975-6959 (since I don't have 10 posts yet). I live down the street from turnbull canyon if you wanna try that out too.

    Is whiting ranch good for DH bikes? I've heard of a lot of people going...I just don't know if they went on DH bikes.

    stupid question: is GMR the same as MTT? or is there some other variation around there?

    MTT? That stands for Monroe truck trail right? Lower Monroe road or whatever it's called? That one is a longer and more mellow ride than the one I usually go to. The one I go to is like half way up and you ride on a road and you turn off of it and go up a grass hill. At the top there is a concrete platform and that's where the trail beings. It's shorter but more intense with some pretty big jumps throughout the first section and with some nice switch backs at the end.


    Edit: so yeah you go up Glendora mountain road and park in front of the Glendora ridge mtwy entrance. You follow Glendora ridge for a bit and on the left hand side you'll see a grass hill, so just head up that and you'll see the concrete pad if you're interested in going, let's get a group together!

    Ah ok cool. Yeah I've ridden monroe truck trail, but wasn't sure if that was the same. Definitely down to hit up the other trail sometime! I'll have to find some time in the next few weeks to head out there.

    Enduro mtn bike, YES... Enduro motorcycle, NO (illegal). For Enduro mtn bikers, it's a shuttle run. Too steep and long of a climb for an Enduro mtn bike, IMO. Unless you are into pushing your bike uphill for miles... or, you are in professional athletic condition.

    Anyone available tomorrow to escort a loop through Whiting / The Luge? Pretty sure I've done both of these years ago, just nothing lately and don't want to get lost or end up doing some 50 mile suffer fest.

    Geoladders -- Whiting Ranch - The Luge

    Prefer to start earlier but whatever's clever.

    Was thinking about heading out to Cheseboro or possibly Space mountain this weekend if you are interested.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    There's a ride going out to Space Mountain this Saturday morning, probably hit dirt around 9:30. So far I've got myself, PerfectZero, QuicksilverZ and cfrea going. Anyone else interested, send me a PM before Saturday.

    Mt. Wilson

    Thinking about riding up Lower Sam Merrill, on over to the fireroad, and up to Wilson from there. Maybe stop at inspiration point on the way, Then either return through Middle Sam Merril or down Mt Wilson Trail into Sierra Madre. Anyhow, anybody interested in rolling?

    I'm gonna be shuttling mt. wilson/mt. lowe tomorrow. Starting around 9:30am. Definitely gonna be hitting up inspiration point for a cool off. Don't know the trail names too well but last time we hit mt. lowe, mt. disappointment, sunset trail and parts of sam merril. If you want we could somehow get in touch and see if we cross paths.

    Sounds good! I'll PM you my # text or call if you get reception and maybe we'll hook up. I plan to leave at 7 so should have no problem being at wilson by 9 - 930.
