    Board Roll Call

    Since a bunch of us are becoming "regulars" on this board I thought a little introduction from each of us might be a good idea.

    I'll start...

    Board name is "Fat Jeff" and that is truth in advertising. I'm fat, and I am Jeff. I live in Ewa but make it out to ride all over the island. Most recently I've been riding Makakilo, it's close and everything else has been pretty wet. I've been riding for 12 years and have tried most types of riding...except trials...can't track stand for nothin. I stuggle on climbs, and love the downhills (favorites being Laie & Makakilo). I have too many bikes, and less & less time to ride them. But I am determined to ride at least every weekend before September when diapers & bottles will rule my world. Like most of you, I work on my bikes myself, but draw the line at building wheels and installing headsets (special tools & real skill required). Otherwise I can fake it enough to justify my Park work stand. In my world I value strong over light, quality over price, and variety rules. I'm a reformed tire **** (new treads all the time, try 'em all) who now runs the knobs way lower than ever before. And I have finally broken that pesky habit of detailing the bike after every ride. Clean drivetrain? Good enough! I'm in this all for fun and I impress no one except maybe my wife (that's because she's never seen YOU guys ride).

    So that's me...Fat Jeff...Original Team Clydesdale

    Jeff:

    Or should I call you Dad? I have 3 rugrats, and I'm lucky my wife lets me out every once in a while!! Good luck.....

    Me and Jeff go way back to the hard tail daysof The Hawaiian Mountain Tour, when light was right and weight weenies ruled. I've come full-circle now, where burly bikes are now a passion. In between, I had several metamorphasis, from Cross-Country rider idolizing Johnny T, to Euro Pro peloton wannabe, and now aspiring freerider. One thing that is consistent is that I continue to learn new moves every time I swing a leg over one of my bikes. I've owned many a bike in my day, but I have pared down my quiver to 4 now. 2 road and 2 MTB. 2 titanium road bikes (a Time Trial bike and an all around road bike). One trailbike (5 X 5) and one DH/freeride bike.

    The moral here is just keep ridin', no matter what style, cause it's super fun. I think we are all obligated to ride because we can. Some people are not physically able to ride for any number of reasons, so we have to ride in honor of those who cant. Does that make sense? I didnt think so..........

    Keep da wheels spinnin'!

    Hi

    My names Mario. I've been lurking for a while. But since we are doing a roll call...I might as well introduce myself. I've been biking for a few years now. I try to get out almost every weekend sometimes twice a weekend. I like to ride most trails Oahu has to offer. It's all good. I have to make the most of it before I go back to Iraq again...eh whatever. When I get back I can get a full suspension bike and ditch this hardtail


    Hope to see you guys on the trails,
    -Mario

    Garden Island Roller...

    Name's Rob. I ride MTB over here, usually four or five days a week. Most of the crew has "disappeared" or show up only once a month or so... so I self-shuttle by stashing my XC bike (K2 Razorback) in the bushes and swapping bikes @ the bottom. I don't like the climb (although I used to)... I'm hooked on FR so climbing is my yoke to bear. My good bike is a VP-Free.

    I've ridden a few times with the crew in Honolulu (St. Louis) and I've ridden Whistler and Northstar but most of my saddle time has been here on Moto-X trails (pictured below).

    Aloha Friday Boys,

    Yeah, I'm here too.
    No great pictures of me but I'll check in. I'm "Big" Leonard, as compared to Leonard N. Anyway, just been riding Mtn Bike for 2 years and have been at it steady. Even during the heavy rain times I kept riding the Range roads. The Mililani crew let's me hang around for the entertainment value I think. I appreciate it just the same .These guys know how ride bike and they climb/descend like billy goats. All friendly, good guys with years of skills. So, Im a noob and when we hook up, you'll see the evidence. I'm having good fun and getting into really good condition. Hope to to ride this weekend. Oh yeah, sheared my rear derailler off (stick)during last evening's ride. Bike now in for replacement part. Will p/u this eve. after work. Sunday ride may be on Sat! because of Mother's day...see you all on the trail.

    I'm in

    Hey All,
    Bill here. Been on a bike most my life. Love the trails we have here in Hawaii. Lost a disagreement with my old company so the wife is letting me take a few months off to enjoy life. Bless her...now if she could just get a second job! Thursday's are my guaranteed to ride dirt days, along with any others I can fit in. I have yet to bring a camera with me but maybe one of my buds will email me one then I'll post.
    Have 3 bikes, an old SJ hardtail, and a Trek 5500 here on Oahu, and an old GT on Lanai (i am frequently there) While I am not fast, I can go on forever. Yesterday I bent my hanger on a rock, putting my derailler into my spokes, today I replaced both parts and all is well.
    Always up for a ride.

    Cheers,
    bill

    Hey guys, my name is Dre and i started out riding bmx which turned into fixed gear track bikes and now has evolved into single speed mountian biking. I hang out with all the A.S.S. guys (aloha single speeders). Between working 2 jobs, finding ride time is hard, but i manage.

    Hey big Jeff

    [QUOTE=Fat Jeff]Since a bunch of us are becoming "regulars" on this board I thought a little introduction from each of us might be a good idea.

    My son turned me on to this site and this is his account. So ypu can talk to him anytime and maybe some day even me. I heard all about the wonderful things your life has been recieving and I think you deserve every one of them. I miss so much riding with all of you good people back home. There are soooo many good trails hear and I have only discovered some of them. Youy know how it is when you learn a new trail you want to do it over and over again. I ride Annadel mostly with 46 miles of leagal single track. I am just learning some of Marin now. China Camp is awsome.My best to all da kine ono blalahs. Mele Kaliki Maka!

    Aloha, Jerry kermode

    Mahalo Jerry!

    I still reminice about the great rides we did from your place in Laie. Great trails, friends, food, and some killer IPAs too!. Nothing going on now comes close to replacing that. Good to hear you're still riding and exploring your new(ish) home. Guess you can't windsurf every day huh? BTW your bowls are prominently displayed in our living room and I get many compliments on them.

    For the rest of you...Jerry is an inspiration. I should hope to be half the rider Jerry is when I'm his age. Yup...he's one of those dealy "old" guys that will smoke you every time.

    The Best to you & Debbie (Christmas card with the Keiki's picture is coming)

    Howzit!

    My name is Eric, I've been riding on and off since '93. Mostly off though. Made lots of friends thru MTBing. The sad part is I don't see them anymore and I hardly ride anymore. Need to make time to ride. I see Leonard a lot Sundays @ Costco. Funny, cause he is riding and I am shopping with the family. Now that my 5 year old is starting to ride a bike I am busting out my trusty old Merlin to ride with him. I wonder when he can start riding "Off Road"?

    Aloha from Volcano

    I just joined the forums but have been riding MTB since the mid 90's, recovered road racer from late 80's/early 90's. Cut my teeth on New Mexico and Flagstaff area trails on an original Barracuda but now living on the Big Island in Volcano Village and looking to expand trail possibilities in the area. Did a cool 30 mile ride down Tree Planting Road from Saddle Road to Kulani Trails to Kea`au; will post pics and a ride report soon. New bike is an IRO singlespeed. I can sympathize with MaukaRunner (above) as my riding and surfing has taken a back seat to raising my 6 year old twin boys- but now they have MTB's and surfboards too... the magic is back!

    Aloha- Shawn

    Another voice from the past here. I go back to mid eighties. Most know me as Root. Still remember the days of camping at Kahuku & riding w/Euro, Mounto, Wildman, Corn, Katana. The epic rides that would kill me now. Night riding with one NiceLite on bar and a Pelican pencil beam strapped to helmet. Riding Tantalus. Night riding Tantalus with that setup & only Dave, now that was spooooky! My 2nd mt bike, the Monster Fat still hangs in my room. My pride & joy the 10th Aniiversary doesn't come out much anymore. The Voodoo used to see bashing trials & urban duty, it's been gathering dust for a while, but hopefully will get shaken out again soon as the trials boys are at it again. I've broken down & ride my second hand Schwin Straight 6 the most now. But in a bit of a retro holdout it has thumbshifters. Hardly ride now, it's kinda sad.

    I'm baaaaack

    I'm one of Rob's other "disappeared" formerly known as yride_ynot. I'm back after a hiatus in the mainland. I've been a bicycle wrench for over nine years and my inner retro grouch is taking over causing me to break the chains of mainstream bicycle trends and swear off gears till my knees give out. I also love to ride trials. I'm pretty sure I'm the one to blame for starting Rob on the path to the dark side....er free riding. Hey Rob! remember when you used to ride a K2 Razorback with the worlds most dangerous fork? HAHAHA Rob come out and play!!!! Soon I'll turn you to an even darker path...that of the single speeder! But seriously I talked to Kevin yesterday, I hope the missus is doing well. Oh and I'm riding a Kona Explosif SS and I have a Echo trials bike.

    Aloha from Arizona

    Name is Jason. Born and raised on Maui. Currently living in AZ but moving back home soon. Been riding for about 12 years now. Mostly DH and Freeride but do the occasional trail ride now and then. Started riding while at UH and used to ride St. Louis Heights all the time. Also loved Waimea Falls DH and Aiea loop. Can't remember the names of the other trails we rode. I currently ride with a bunch of the AZ MTBR crew. Bunch of great guys up here. Hope to hook-up with some of the HI MTBR crew when I get back. Aloha.

    When each day of your life begins with the thought of where you will ride today, tomorrow, this weekend, next month, when your mind becomes so tuned to the rhythm of two wheels that you only look for places to ride, when you picture yourself standing on every mountain top in sight about to drop into a trail, and when someone asks you "Are you still spending all your time riding your bike?" and you answer "YES!" (like there is anything better to do) You have found your passion.

    Sorry, experience and riding style: When I was teen I did dirt jumping, and motocross, now at 33 I see myself trying cross-country or basic trail riding, I won't be entering any races anytime soon as I don't have the time to commit nor the patience. I haven't ridden anything but street as yet, just recently purchased a "real" mountainbike. Got myself a 2003 Giant Iguana which I hope to fix up as it breaks, if I really get into the sport I will upgrade accordingly. I have been riding with my daughter on weekends, but will looking for a good group of riders to get some miles under my belt in the red dirt.

    Big Eye Ryder

    Howzit from the Big Island.
    I ride mainly cross country and all mountain. Would like to get into freeriding a bit. I'm all over the Big Island, exploring and trying new places.
    Started back in late 80's in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, CA, hardtail, solid fork. Palos Verdes was my riding area at the time. One of my friend's was one of the testers of the original RockShox. I took a 12 year hiatus from mt. biking as I had gotten into competing in bodyboarding and getting involved in the competition aspect of the surfing industry. Retired from that. Moved back to the Big Island and took up mt. biking again to cross train with my surfing side. Needed to do something when waves are flat. Now split my time between biking and surfing.
    I'm 41 going on 12......
    Hey I'm going to the Kahuku ranch ride!!!!! Will take pix and post later.....
    Oh, I ride a 2005 Giant Reign, perfect one bike for the Big Island's various terrain. Mainly stock. Upgraded to SRAM X-9s triggers and deurailler. 8 inch front rotor. Crank Bros. mallet pedals. Homemade shock guard. Nokion sealed cable housing, good for the rain here. And an old school Brooks saddle form my okole...
    Shoots Brah!

    Hey honolii29- welcome- I'll be looking for your Reign at Kahuku. Going there from Volcano, meeting up with the singlespeed crew from Hilo. Check out my blog for ride reports and more news about biking in the Volcano area. We are now organizing in order to do some advocacy work and trail building- watch for Volcano Velo, and watch the blog for sign-up info. Give me a shout if you want to ride Volcano sometime- if you don't mind riding with a singlespeed 29er- I surf Honolii every chance I get- watch for me on an a blue & white 8ft Country hybrid swallow tail... See you Saturday!

    Whoa, brah, who is this?? I was riding PV back in the 80's. I too started on full rigid U-brake days with no suspension, no "gears", small tires. I'm now here BI riding what ever I can find. Been here since early 90's. I just got back from awesome 3.5 week trip riding in Idaho, Wyoming, Utah and CA (PV etc.) I know the Brooks saddle, got a couple of guys I know still riding those. Hell, I know another guy riding the Reign. Awesome bike!!!

    Now riding my 2005 Turner 5 Spot - I built it August 2005.

    Here's Build sheet...........
    http://www.cfht.hawaii.edu/~grant/Tu...ts_Turner.html

    And a few pictures...........
    The Bike - I guess there are a few on the Build Sheet


    And a couple of riding pics from my last trip (earlier this month).





    Aloha!! So many trails, so little time....................

    Howzit Gmats and Shawner.
    I've been on this forum for awhile but never poeted or anything, just reading info and such. I'm a low key kind of guy. Good to hear form you two.
    Gmats - My roommate was Darin Akiyama at the time, and he wrenched at Circle Cycle (now Performance) in Torrance at the time. He used to wrench for Gerry at Mid-Pac Wheels on the Big Eye for years. We used to ride with Roger from Circle Cycle and some others. We'd do the backside of PV Hawthorne Hill climb time trials on mt. bikes against the roadies, and then come downhill off-rad parallel to the road. LOL! All over PV. Lomita horse trail down to the bath house by the beach, Peacock Flats, Del Oro park downhill, just to name a few. Fun times back then, no shocks, no suspensions, pure skills! How about that drop on Hawthorne right at the foothills where they ride motorcross?!! Nuts.
    Shawner - I have read your blog numerous times and smile! I've ridden a lot of the trails you write about, and some "illegal" ones too. Never got caught, but i ride by myself so i keep a very low profile. I have courtesy for whomever is on the trail and have never got any complaints. Yes, will hook up to chat at Kahuku.
    aloha,
    David

He used to wrench for Gerry at Mid-Pac Wheels on the Big Eye for years. We used to ride with Roger from Circle Cycle and some others. We'd do the backside of PV Hawthorne Hill climb time trials on mt. bikes against the roadies, and then come downhill off-rad parallel to the road. LOL! All over PV. Lomita horse trail down to the bath house by the beach, Peacock Flats, Del Oro park downhill, just to name a few. Fun times back then, no shocks, no suspensions, pure skills! How about that drop on Hawthorne right at the foothills where they ride motorcross?!! Nuts.

    aloha,
    David
    Hey David,

    I don't know Darin. I do remember Circle Cycle - both the old building and the new one. I was just out there a few weeks ago. I used to hang out down at Bicycle Center down in Redondo Beach on PCH. Those are the guys I ride with now when I take my annual MTB trips. Every year we take a trip some where. Often Crested Butte CO, Brianhead, Moab etc. We've been to New Zealand, Whistler, parts of Oregon and Washington, New Hampshire, New Mexico. The gang heads to Kernville (lake Isabella area) for the festival. John Stallone at Mountain River Adventures puts on a great weekend of riding. Fat Tire Festival coming up.

    Anyway, hope we can get together some time for some riding. I like technical single track riding. Enjoy going on long rides and just exploring.

    Have an awesome weekend.

    aloha,
    g

    howzit hui malu mtbr ,

    Maui rider Eric here.
    Been rolling the trails of Hawaii since '88, and Colorado before that.
    Perfect day for me includes a fast techy airy ride followed up with some hollow waves.
    usually have to settle for a wet techy ride with mushy surf.

    I've done some riding/racing on the other islands, but it's been awhile.

    bonus points for anyone who can name the spectators in this early 90's shot of me doing what I do best from a race outside Hilo.



    and one of me in the stuff I like to ride.



    been hanging out here at mtbr since late 90's, and I spend most of my time in the Turner forum.

    Thanks for the Maui show-and-tell. I couldn't find the "Turkey Shoot" on Sunday, but I was a little spent from the previous day... so it worked out OK.

    Hit me up if you ever have a chance to come to the Garden Island. I've got an inner-tube for you...

    morning all,

    found this forum while searching out bike info in preparation of our upcoming move to Oahu.

    looks like the islands are a 2wheelers dream

    I've never had a 'real' bike before, but i'm all set to pull the trigger for a new jamis dakar.

    its honestly BIG overkill for myself, but I'm at a point in my life where I'm ok wth that!!

    I'm a retired AF ammo troop and after following me around from base-to-base for 20 years, my wife decided join the Army Nurse Corps and got her first duty station assignment to Tripler

    anywho... short story is I am a TOTAL noob at any thing other than flat ground bike trails that we have in the mid-west but I'm very excited at whats in store for us.

    we should be in place some time around mid-march however I may have to come back to the main land to wrap up a few things and not get back to the island until end of May

    looking forward to the adventure!

    Mac

    Hello... New Oahu rider here.

    I just got into mountain biking a few months ago, but I've been riding bikes (bmx, freestyle & sportbikes) all my life. Of the 3 months or so of riding, I picked up a hardtail and a full squish... So yeah, I got the mtb bug... ummm, and the wife is gonna kill me when she see's the CC bill .

    Royal Summit (Aiea) is the only mountain I've ridden so far. I also met a few regulars (sunday mornings), and got to know some of the trails there. I'm always looking for new trails to ride & people to ride it with, so if you don't mind playing tour guide for a noob (me) , drop me a PM. Cya!

    Ricebowls...(because I used to live around the corner from said break) AKA Eric. I started riding @ St. Louis Hts about 5.5 years ago but had to leave for the mainland 6 months later so I only got to know a few of the riders back then. Since then I've been riding and racing all over the SF/Tahoe/N*/Santa Cruz area (with a couple local boys too) and taking trips to Whistler. In addition to DH/FR I've gotten into cyclocross and a bit of road on occasion.

    I'll be moving back to Oahu July 9th and I'll have my v10 and my truck with me when I get there so let's hook up some shuttles. Also down with some solid trail riding once the rest of my bikes show up.

    You should post on www.dhhawaii.com. A bunch of St. Louis regulars are heading for Whistler right after you get here so the St. Louis action might be a little slow till everyone gets back. I also heard some of the outer island riders are heading up to Whistler around the same time.

    Royal Summit

    Our group has been going there a bunch recently. Some nice stuff. Yes, lots of climbing, but thats how it is here. Mostly not too technical, but theres a few spots. Quite a few options been exploring. Usually go up Wailuna, have been going over to ridges on either side. Some jumps & stunts. Conditions have been nice recently, dry.

I have yet to bring a camera with me but maybe one of my buds will email me one then I'll post.
    Have 3 bikes, an old SJ hardtail, and a Trek 5500 here on Oahu, and an old GT on Lanai (i am frequently there) While I am not fast, I can go on forever. Yesterday I bent my hanger on a rock, putting my derailler into my spokes, today I replaced both parts and all is well.
    Always up for a ride.

    Cheers,
    bill

    Here I am


    There I go

    Howzit! I am not a new rider but just decided to sign up on here. I have been mountain biking on and off since about 96. I just got a cheaper Iron Horse to get me back into it while I save for a Scott or Specialized. I live on the Big Island kona side and have lived on most of the islands as I flew heli tours.

    Shoots, guess thats it.

    Just moved to Oahu for school at UH Manoa. Had to leave the bikes at home cuz the housing I have does not allow bikes inside, and not willing to lock my Niner in public. Went from biking 3-4 times a week and racing every month or so to nothing. Was supposed to go to Colorado and be on the team for school but funds for tuition did not allow it.

    So if anyone has an extra bike I can ride with them, I will have my helmet and stuff shipped out, PS I take a large frame. My school schedule is in the morning, most days I get out at 1145 or 1030. Dont know much about the area, just hiked some trails near Honolulu and that is about it.
