    Yo Dirty,
    I don't think there are many Livingston riders who post on this forum (actually, none that I've seen), but there are a number of us from Bozeman who'd love to show you around the Bozeman area trails.

    Sounds great. If there are plans of doing some runs tell me in advance because I work 4 days on 4 days off, so my schedule is always changing.

    Thanks alot

    '07 Titus MotoLite and '88 Bridgetone MB1 when it's smooth.
    Haven't ridden with anybody on the board.
    PBR when I drink many, a decent IPA when I drink many and have money. Darker, thicker stuff when its cold.
    Schweitzer in the winter and summer. Syringa's a good time, out the door.
    I wait tables at night, letting me schralp the gnar during daylight hours.
    Probably moving to SW Florida, not stoked. No surf, no real riding. Bridgestone will see use than ever. Getting all the some I can before I leave. Much some to get.

    Beerisgud - aka Bondo - aka Chris (yes, another in the Chris series)

    Age - 40 in 2008

    Location- Boise

    Have not used MTBR to post much so I don't know everyone's handles. Have ridden or trail worked with SmileyCook, Dmeek, Gary Flipnidaho, Al, many more.

    Still riding the Ti hardtail and wishing for that 40th b-day present big huck rig Yeti while I contemplate my next trail over a Maudite (Unibrou Brewery), anything from the spigot at the Deschutes Brewery, PBR's on the river or hiding in the glove box, and lately been enjoying a Belgian called Lunatic that I found at Freddy's of all places.

    Other two wheeled children are Bianchi Pista Concept track bike, Litespeed Cross bike, and a good looking Quattro Assi road bike with dust all over it.

    Will dig and ride with just about anyone.

    Hey everyone! I'm just getting back on the horse after a 10 year period of inactivity, so I guess I'd qualify as a clydesdale...

    I'm looking forward to bangin' out some miles on the local trails until I'm comfortable enough to hit the Red Lodge and Bozeman scenes. I'm excited that I've found this forum and look forward to gleaning a lot of info from everyone!

    Just bought my first bike a couple weeks ago, 2010 Gary Fisher X-Cal. I had never really ridden and didn't even know if I would like it. Sometimes impulse buys are good cause I love it so far.
    If anyone wants to ride around Helena, Butte, Boulder area hit me up. I'm looking to learn about good trails.
    My favorite beers are anything from Blackfoot River Brewing.

    I don't know if you're on Facebook, but if you are search for Highlands Cycling Club. We're getting the club fired back up in Butte and there are lots of people riding, you could connect for a ride pretty easy. My son lives in Helena and I'm sure would be down for a ride about anytime; if you're interested drop me a PM and I'll give you his phone number.

    From: Livingston, in Bozeman for college though
    Ride: 05 Norco Savage with all sorts of random parts on it
    Favorite trail: so far Leverich is my favorite, but I haven't gotten around to exploring much yet.

    Location: Livingston, MT
    Years old: 20
    Bikes: Marin Quake 7.2 DH, Specialized P.2 SS
    Don't know anyone, haven't rode much, moved here last August. No mountain miles on Marin yet.
    Brew: Sobe
    I'm from livingston, there really isn't any real place to go ride with close by with the marin or the p2, your can try up at the gullies, if they're still open, but those aren't so much trails as random drops and jumps scattered about. They are up on the north side of town, just go up North 8th until you reach a dead end, then turn right, there is a dirt road/trail on the left side and if you head up there you should be able to find something. I haven't been there in forever so I don't know if it has changed any.

    Hello - Name's Chris
    Age: 33
    Live in Hidden Springs
    Bike: '03 Trek 8000
    Beer: Right now digging Session prem Lager - ten bucks for 12-pack

    Haven't ridden with anyone here yet. I just moved from Sconny (Wisconsin). I rode mostly overly technical annoying crap because there are no hills there. Love the flowy fun descents here!

    If you see a guy lurched over his bike looking like he's ready to throw up or pass out it's probably me so say hi. Right now sticking to the trails close to Hidden Springs but plan on doing Table Rock and/or PoleCat here this weekend.

    edit: Wound up doing Three Bears and Shane's with a friend. Great trails! Fun descents! Also notable - didn't throw up or pass out

    I'm based in Memphis (thus the taste for cheap malt liquor that comes in 40s), but I'll be here in Kelly until September. I'd love to find some guys to go ride the pass with; I mostly just ride over to Shadow Mountain and make it a nice long loop since I don't have a vehicle.

    p.s. no picture, I like to ride fast, therefore, I am prone to miss the shot, halfway down the trail when everyone stops for pics. Just saying...

    Can't believe you posted this 6 1/2 years ago. Where does time go?
    Seems it flies along all downhill after 40

    Health, Happiness, Love, Long fulfilling life and lots and lots of satisfying riding to us all

    Bikes I ride: my go to bike is my Yeti ASR-7. But I spend alot of time on my dj too. MSC-ill capo. Roadie/cross bike is my specialized crux pro. Around campus I am known as the unicycle kid because I get to class on my unicycle.

    Don't think I have ridden with any of you so far.

    Haven't found a brew that I actually like. Water coming from the Camelback always hits the spot though.

    Hey, guess I'll add my name here.

    Kyle, 30, spent my whole life in various locations on the Idaho/Washington boarder.

    In the Moscow/Pullman area right now, likely to be down in the Boise area by this time next year.

    Ride a Chromag Stylus hardtail and I just picked up a Special-Ed Pitch.

    Ridden with formica, but that's all I believe.

    I enjoy Stouts and Porters, Red wine, and a lot of water.

    I like back country riding and tech. xc.

    Hey All,
    Long time MTBR lurker first time poster.

    Jeff, 27

    Location: Boise

    History: Started mountain biking with my father at the age of 10 in my native Colorado. Developed a love early, and had a mountain biking focused life since. After moving from Gunnison/ Crested Butte back to Denver, I could never shake my love of easily accessible riding. When my then girlfriend got a job offer in Boise, I followed. It's been 2 years, the girl is gone but I'm here for the long haul!

    Likes: Dissecting technical, trials inducing rock climbs, hardtails, 26 and 650b wheels, sexy welds, scar stories, the color red.

    Bike: Dean Colonel

    Beer: Summer: Odell St. Lupulin / Winter: Great Divide Belgian Yeti

    ... and if we just ...

    Innes

    type of rider, cross country, endurance, competed in several 12/24 hr adv races so I keep my set up as light and inline with my budget .

    Current bike, Titus racer x , XT set up because it works year after year.

    riding for 12 years, started after a many years of Rugby.

    Type of beer. I will try most Ambers and Ales, current favorite Africa ale from sunray cafe in hyde park boise. Wow, it is hard to only drink one.

    My riding will start to change, looking to go full suspension 29er. Little giddy about the new Santa Cruz LT. I rode the 29er stumpy 130mm for a couple of days in N.C Pisgah Mts this spring.The downhills changed my mind. I have been riding a wild pony for to long .

    Moved to Boise from N.C last fall, wish I had done the move 10 years ago

    Hey y'all I moved Logan, Utah on the border of Idaho at the end of last summer. technically not part of this threads reach but close enough.

    Rode Inman Creek last weekend in the Pocatello area and loved it enough to return to see what else Poky has to offer this weekend.

    Soon enough I'll be exploring deeper into Idaho and Wyoming.

    I'm Justice, 28, male, PhD student/college instructor at Utah State.

    Love good beer (the hardest part of moving to Utah for me-there's ok beer but hard to get and pricey). Favorite depends on the season. IPAs in the colder months. Ambers, coppers, American Pales, and reds in the warmer. Ska Brewery is my favorite brewery, from my days of living in Durango. Tecate is my favorite bad beer.

    Bikes:
    Trek Sawyer SS rigid 29er (trying out going soft in the next few weeks once the fork comes in). The go-to bike
    Spot Brand Highline "dirt drop" bars 29er rigid dinglespeed for bikepacking, commuting.
    DMR Trailstar Long Travel SS 26" for jumping, trail bike
    90's chromed out GT 24" BMX cruiser with neon accents for being awesome

    Except for the dinglespeed, I only ride singlespeed

    Here's a pic of my bike at Inman Creek last week

    New to the board, I live in Helena, MT. Usually i'm just using my bike to get as far up a hiking trail I can for fishing/hunting. My bike is POS 2010 DB Response Sport, which I'm currently trying to change the POS portion.

    I raced a few times living in Iowa and did well, but MTB out here is a whole different animal, and I like my bones intact at the moment...

    Favorite beer: Old Milwaukee and Ranier ( best substitute I could find for Old Milwaukee out here)

    MToffroad, welcome to town. How do you like the Corral (Scratchgravel) Fire to welcome you to fire season in the West? Scratchgravels are a great riding area that drains very quickly after any rain and usually stays dry for a long time into fall and melts out early in the spring.
    South Hills are a great convenience for this town, right from you door (if you live in town) you have access to something like 100 miles of trails.
    If you rethink the racing thing, check out montanacycling.net. Bohart Bash this weekend in Bozeman. Next race to come through Helena is WERKS on September 9. Also check out the York 38 Special on August 25.
    Is Old Mud really not available locally any more?

    I'm Mark, I just moved back to the States after living oversea for the last 13.5 years. I'm living in Mountain Home and really liking the area. I just wish I was closer to Boise. I want to get out and ride as soon as it warms up. I don't have anything special just a DB Response. It gets the job done.

    Board roll call

    Helena's a decent place for beer, with Blackfoot's taproom. My wife is English, and I've picked up the taste for traditional English-style bitters.
    Holy cow, but this was buried on this thread. Sh!t done changed in 8 years. With the forum's software update, it bumped a bunch of old threads, and I just read a post of mine in which I mentioned that the woman at the LBS told me that mine was one of 6 29ers she knew of in this town. That, and I'm no longer marriaged, I've met loads of forum members while traveling around, and I'm not scared of pointing my bike downhill anymore. Woo hoo!

    Anyway, I'm Eric, currently riding either a Banshee Prime or a Canfield Yelli Screamy, and I still live on the south end of Helena, right up against a couple trailheads. Avid participant in the Gravity Guild group rides out of the Garage. Blackfoot is still a quality brewery, but now Lewis & Clark really gives it a run for its money.

    I've ridden a lot of places since then, and I've come to realize that Helena has it pretty good for a mtb community. If you're in the area, try to catch a Tuesday or Thursday ride out of the Garage, meet some folks, and see our trails.

    C.D.A.

    Location - Boise, West side

    Age - Just turned 48

    Bike - '94 Cannondale SuperV1000, '96 Cannondale F500 rigid fork 69'er

    Grew up in S.Cal. Was MTB'ing before they called it that back in the mid '70's in the canyons and hills around San Diego. Hal's Bike Shop was where we hung out and dreamed and built our 'Tankers' (What we called our MTB's back then).

    Bought my 1994 Cannondale Super V1000 brand new at BIKE USA (Hal retired and rented the building to said shop). Made the jump to FS; Talk about plush ! I really wanted the Super V2000 with the CF swing arm but I was too poor. When I moved up here to Boise and started riding trails in '00 I started hearing how riders with the CF swing arms were having trouble because the brake boss' were breaking off . Yea, for being poor!

    I endo'ed in '01 herniating a disk between C5 and C6 and had part of my neck fused. Didn't touch a bike again until '10. Put about 3,000 miles in the saddle before my old neck injury come back to haunt me. Had surgery to fuse most of the neck (C3 to C7) Sept. '11. Back on the bike Jan. '12 to present. I've put in about 1,300 miles in the last 12 months.

    Most of my riding these days are commuting about 12 miles of road with about 2 miles of trail in between points. For those who know Boise: Start off by HP, to Hill Rd., pick up a trail at Camelback Park, find my way to Military Reserve Park, back on the road into downtown.

    MtbMissoula ~ Ian M.
    Age 23

    Moved to Missoula, Mt 2 yrs ago for School (UofM, Go Griz!) and got on a Mtb about a year later.

    I'm riding a mostly stock Specialized Hardrock 29er, slowly working on upgrading the components as I wear them down. As well as a junkie craigslist road bike for getting around town.

    I haven't ridden with anyone on here yet but you can find me up in the Rattlesnake or cruising down Blue Mtn. most days in the summer, spring and fall (really whenever I have any free time).

    Beer: Rogue Dead Guy Ale, whatever's on tap at Big Sky for free... Or most any decent IPA Microbrew around.

    Moving Back!

    age: turning 26
    Moving back to my hometown of Missoula, MT after being away for almost 8 years this upcoming June...
    Have a few bikes I am working on... Haro Escape 8.3, Raleigh M80 and my first bike that started it all, my XRĖPro.
    Can't wait to be home and out of the desert.

    Grew up a block away from Big Sky Brewery, so they hold a special place in my heart

    Hi, I'm Mike

    From back east (Maine).....currently in Twin Falls

    35

    Started cycling about a year ago and sort of went crazy. 2k on the road last the summer, tried CX in the fall, learned to turn wrenches and now building up a touring rig (Salsa Vaya). Brand spanking new to mountain biking.

    There's no bad beers, it's just that some are better than others.

    Hey I'm new to the MTBR Scene,

    Name's Trent,

    Age, 24th year of life

    Bike: Prospecting

    Experience: Almost None, Complete and total noob. I used to ride a DS Mongoose when I was 15 or so. I thought that was the coolest bike. Since then I have rode occasionally with friends on their bikes but haven't invested any time or money into my own.

    Where From: Nampa

    My Favorite Drink: In the summer its Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and in the winter is Black Butte Porter, or any porter that says "black" in it. Also I enjoy miller lite, Coors original and Kokanee.

    Ridden with: No one yet.

    What got me started: Since I work in an office most of the time I need something to counter all of those unburned calories. Hoping a new bike will help me become more active as well as meet new people and enjoy the outdoors.

    have not ridden with anyone from the boards.

    My last mtn bikes were a rigid 26er and a stinky deluxe. I wanted something in between them for getting back into riding. Also ride an 80's rockhopper commuter and a 24" bmx bike.

    summer time: I want a modelo or tecate with lime and salt. in the winter i like some hoppy IPA's.

    I think it's entirely relevant. Beer is delicious anyway and even more so after a ride.
