    dfinn you got any rides in yet? Man you should've joined us at Kalopa today. The trail conditions were great. You found a rental bike?


    Aikane - damn you were rockin on your singlespeed HT today. Can you make it any harder on yourself? lol.

    Gmats - it was fun doing trail maintenance with you and aikane today. It felt good to give back to the trail.

    Aikane and I finally conquered this rooty ledge for the first time today. I was soooo pumped when I did it. I think the Trail Gods were happy with me cause I helped clean up earlier.

    Yes, and you didn't do any tree hugging today. You've come a long way daniel-san.

    Looks like a tough little spot, looks easy to spin the back tire, good job. A lot of my tough spots are rock with good traction, just have to overcome gravity, and poor bike handling skills.

    Yesterday the conditions were optimal to get over the ledge. It was dry and the mud pit leading up to it was not slippery at all. So I was able to pick my line and turn my bike in the right direction. Usually I just slip and slide all the way then lose my balace before I even get to the ledge. lol.

    I've been there, eyeball an obstacle, but I'm smoked before I even get to it.

    Now my next goal is to conquer it again. Maybe even try the harder line that gmats takes.

    If you take the first left at the pine tree, the second trail should lead you to the waterslide right next to the waterfall. It's not a hard downhill, just looks rocky. Bring swim shorts or go naked. Lots of college girls do it and they are very friendly. Have fun! Don't forget dinner at that place after.

    Wow, you were out at Kalopa yesterday? So who was I riding with in Kulani? I'm jealous, you've figured out the "cloning" thing, you can be riding two different trails at the same time. I want, I want, I want................

    Got a quick ride in at Kulani. Even if I can only ride for an hour, it's still worth it.

    Not that I know of. The terrain looks perfect for trails, but I think there is too many hunters in there. I wouldn't want to risk it.

    Happy Holidays you guys, remember-if you're ever in California: I know this area well enough to give some good tours. I'd be delighted, especially after my time in Hawaii.

    Volcano Nat'l Park is a fun place to ride, lots of great scenery and some trick obstacles too. Just gotta be careful not to buzz the tourist.
    Come down to Kulani some time and meet the guys.

    well, you know I hope I see you out here sometime then. It's chilly now, but the trails are looking good. Not too many trees for you to hug though.

    Living is well, I miss Hawaii-that was different. Trails are great out here right now: can't ride them though! I got a minor surgery-they wanted some of my lymph nodes.

    Happy New Years and belated Christmas to you Mr. Toad

    Hey Jonas you should try and ask this question on the Facebook page. You might get a better response there. At least more people will see it.

    Kulani was still a little soggy this afternoon. The roots were still slippery. I ran into aikane and we had a little impromptu vid sesh. I just heard some rain falling tonight. It's probably going to be a little wet and wild tomorrow. Definitely wild.

    For sure some day I will make it back out there to ride. So many trails, so little time. I even see lines through the snow here in MI. I've been lucky enough to have ridden all over the place over the years. Ehigh, you know you can always hook up with us to ride when you're back on the islands.

    Hehe! You are addicted bud. Happy 2013 to all of you out there. More TITS for sure, looking forward to getting back on the island and getting the tires turning. So many trails to ride, so little time. I also have so many experiments I want to try with bikes. I guess I still need something to continue to fund my porn.

    I hope everyone got their first ride of the year out of the way already. I did a quick 7.5 mile road ride around my neighborhood this morning. I just wanted to fool around with my new clip-in pedals. Climbing the steep hills were easier, but I know I need practice. 2013 is going to be another learning year for me.

    I picked up the Candy 3. I wanted to get something that wasn't too expensive, but decent. For $80 these seemed like a good choice.
