    Don't need lights. Ride during the day, drink beer at night with everyone. You won't be sleeping anyway, so no need for a campsite. I can't help you with a car...

    If you do come out, look for me. I help scotty and the mechanic for the solo racer who will be kicking everyone's a$$!

    I just got a bike about a month and a half ago. I'm going to go on my first trail ride as soon as I change out my forks. I'm pretty amped up about riding it looks fun.

    Moving to Oahu next summer. I can't wait for some warm weather. I haven't even sat on any of my bikes since October.

    Hi everyone my names Josiah, Ive been on the Big Island for about 2.5 years now. Ive been riding regularly for about a year, just recently I ditched my crappy mongoose for a bike worth riding and I'm loving it more than ever. I ride with a few friends, mostly AM and occasionally some XC. I really want to get a downhill bike soon and start hitting the big stuff.
    huck and roll...totally my idea lol

    Aloha everyone, my name is Brady from Big Island, born and raised. I currently live in Honoka'a, making DHing my weekend activity with my buds. We're currently beginning to build a DH track out here on a friends private farm because we don't really have any DH spots out here. People I have spoken with at the bike shops can't really steer me into any direction for any DH tracks, so we figured to just make our own. Most people here are just into XC and what not...

    It would be cool to get to know anyone else on Big Island who shares the same interest, maybe hook me up with some secret DH spots out here...haha... or just wanna ride, hit me up, shoot me some emails or something!

    Mahalo!

    What's up everybody?! My name is Mike... I used to do a bit of riding on the mainland long ago but lost touch with it for a while. Just starting back up again and realizing that I'm not quite sixteen anymore (but that' s mostly a good thing). With the help of some of the people on this board have been discovering some pretty awesome trails. I'm based out of Kailua but am not afraid to drive to the other side of the island for a good ride. I'm very technically inclined so I've been learning to wrench on my bikes mostly through youtube and some friends at cycle manoa. I've got a pretty tricked out 2001 GT Aggressor and just picked up a 2008 Giant Trance2 (all stock). The Trance is pretty fun but needs some upgrades. Hope to get to know some of the other riders as I don't really have anyone to ride with yet. Pics to follow shortly....

    Wow, aside from Mike, the last intro has been a year ago. Anyway, I just signed up for this forum today. My name's Sean. I'm from Makaha. I'm also new to MTBing. I used to have a road bike back in high school and I used to ride the trails behind my house on my BMX. But now I'm back at square one. I don't even have a bike yet which is basically why I joined this site. I'd love to hear about some good trails you guys know about and any advice would be great. Thanks. Nice to meet you all.

    Hey peoples,
    Mike here, just joined this site. Great to see all the options that are available to newbies like me. Been riding since 1987, mostly BMX. Been on hiatus from riding for a while, just recently got back into it. Mountain biking is completely different from BMX riding. Now that i have gears to play with, i'm spoiled. I'm taking it slow getting my legs (and rest of my body back into shape). Anyways just keeping the thread alive.

    Howzit! Gunnar here. I'm an old school 90's rider living in Minnesota for the last 15 years. Still have family back home (Oahu) and am hoping to visit more often now with some riding.

    Was mostly riding road and fixed for the past bunch of years, but just got back into mountainbiking with a 29'er hardtail. Lovin' it.

    Anyway, thought I'd say hi to the other old school riders on here. Love hearing and seeing pics from back in the day. Anyone remember the local mag U26? I think I have a couple copies in a box somewhere. Was thinking of scanning and posting some pages from that.

    HI Everybody, I just found this forum because I am looking for a bike now. My hookooekoo was stolen about 4 years ago. I havn't even ridden mountain bike off road since I got here in 2000. I only made one trip down st. louis. But now my kid is getting older and I am getting the bug again. Watch for me asking advice on which bike to get on other threads. Want to get back for the exercise and to get away and be in nature. I learned to mb in Santa cruz where I really fell in love with it. But it took a back seat to my surfing for so many years. Just never figured out where to go over here yet.

    Name is Jeff

    I thought I had more, but could only find one issue. It's the one year anniversary issue published May/June 1997. (The month I moved to the mainland)

    Howzit everybody....my name is Kevin and I'm from Kauai. Been around bikes since I was a kid racing BMX. Bought a rigid GT MTB after college and road around Kunia...nothing harsh, just liked to ride. Had a family and kids and put the GT in the storage shed....my middle child, my only boy is now 11 and I bought him a BMX bike to ride so the GT came out again and I found that I enjoyed it a lot. Wanted to ride some tougher trails but with no suspension the rides were killing my wrists. Found this site and started researching and decided to drop the hammer and buy a Trek Fuel EX8. Love it and try to ride every week....been up to Kokee a few times and realized I should have bought a Remedy...

    All good though....had some spills but I'm getting back into it and relearning the ropes.

    Just thought I would chime in and say hey. Been lurking for a while. I got introduced to mountain biking about 8 or 9 months ago when I moved here. I live right next to St. Louis so that's what I learned on. I've been loving riding as well as shooting/editing video of riding. Look forward to meeing people on the trails!

    After 12 years on the mainland (WA, to be exact), I finally get to move back to HI. Born and raised on Kauai, but will be moving to Oahu next month. I'll be bringing back my 1x9 Blue Pig and a 2x10 SC Butcher. Seems like trail options are pretty limited, at least near town. Looks like I'll spring for a Camp Timberline membership and slowly check off trails listed on MTBHawaii, when I'm not in the water that is. Stoked to be headed home, can't wait to ride!

    New found hopefully passion...

    Well, I'm new and I live in hawaii... And I have a bike and am looking to ride... Roll Call.. Sure why not.

    Names Randy, I rode a bike until I was 18, I'm now 25... When I say rode I mean thats really just about it. I didn't do to much than ride about 35+ miles a week to the girlfriends house and work... At 18 I got a car and then got fat. I picked up a bike recently and got excited as all hell and decided that I would really like to hit trails... I remember doing it as a kid in WA and finding random trails in the woods and dodging trees on my BMX bike. I'm vastly inexperience, don't know a damn thing about bikes, and full of motivation to ride. I'm military have twin daughters, from WA and CA (i fused with myself when we finally met) and play alot of computer games... I'm looking to get out into the world / island (since i've only been stationed here for 5 years and never did and my time is running out here)

    I appreciate advice if you have it pearls of wisdom, trails to not ride and to ride, tips tricks, *****es gripes and complaints!

    Thanks for reading!

    First Post!

    Hi everyone, I'm Evan, and I'm a recent transplant to Oahu (Manoa Valley).

    I have been a car mechanic for the last 10 years back in Washington D.C. and I am looking forward to not owning a car for the next few years.

    I currently ride a Specialized Sirrus Sport (XL Frame... I'm a big boy), but I have a Surly "Karate Monkey" on the way for a single speed 29er build-up. I bought the Sirrus on a whim because I needed transportation FAST and realized about a month later that it isn't my style.

    I haven't owned a bike since I was much younger, and at 28, I am loving the physical demands of riding these big hills in the heat of the Hawaiian sun. Looking forward to hitting up some muddy trails and getting used to the single speed lifestyle...burning quads-and-all.

    Weighing in

    First post too. Aloha everyone. Dayle from Kaneohe here. Lifelong resident of Oahu. Used to ride a lot in the 80s (I'm 55 now) and picked up biking again two years ago after too many years of living the slug life.

    I'll admit that I'm most a road rider (avg about 130 miles a week on my Giant Escape 3 purchased last Sept from McCully Bike) but have lots of experience on Oahu's trails as a hiker with the Hawaiian Trail and Mountain Club.

    One memorable mt biking experience was from Pupukea to Chun's Reef back in 1996 via the now-paved (but wasn't paved back then) Palaa Uka Pupukea military road. I even posted a story about the trek.

    Glad to be a part of the forum. Looking forward to participating in the discussion and talking story.

    Aloha, first post on the forums. Just picked up a hardtail 29er and looking to cut my teeth on some trails! I'm a mainland transplant from Orlando, spent my youth BMX/dirt jumping, and haven't really rode much in the past 15 years.

    I've started commuting to work to get my endurance back up, and can't wait to get out on the trails!

    Ugh, kaena is one of my least fav spots to ride. If I was driving out that far, go Sunset Hills. That's our weekend go to spot.
    Ohana Is great too, nice new trail with the relatively dry season we've been having is in great shape right now. Good for a not too far away quickie, or you can extend it by dropping into Ditch.

    I do kaena on my single speed full rigid so it's pretty enjoyable, I like the views and secluded beaches...obv not "mountain biking" but a decent workout like tantalus and old pali rd...I haven't done pupukea yet, don't want to get lost and prefer to go with someone there who knows their way around...hitting up manana tomorrow or kuli'ou'ou
