    Board roll call

    I don't know if you guys have noticed, but I think this board gets more traffic than any of the regional boards other than the Colorado and Cali boards. There also seem to be more and more new posters on the board. I think it's time for a general board roll call. Where do you live, how old are you, what's your primary bike, who from the board have you ridden with, and what's your brew of choice? (Ignore the last question if it offends you.) If you have a photo of yourself, post it so we know what you look like!

    Earthpig (aka Geoff)

    Location - Boise, on the Mesa

    Age - turning 35 tomorrow

    Bike - Ventana X5 (fork finally back from Marzocchi!) (also have a road bike, cross bike and a hardtail)

    Have ridden with - smilycook, crash_burn, twistedcrank, flipinidaho, Nels, mtnbkrdr98, lv2ride, Bombin 40x, riderx40, Wayndar, Irishbuddha, MarkV, rideit, Visicypher, adso, justen, and Sparticus from the OR/SS boards. (Also have met CBro and BelaySlave, but have not ridden with them)

    Brew - PBR when I'm thirsty, Miller Lite when I'm watching my weight, OE or Bull when I want a quick, cheap buzz, and Black Butte Porter when I want the best beer on the planet

    Adam W., otherwise haven't ridden with anyone from the board. Mostly do my riding by myself. I do enjoy reading everyones exploits and the information is great. One of these days I'll break out of my shell and join a ride.

    Fave beer, hmmmmm, for starters: Red Hook Sun Rye, Portland Honey lager, Becks, Warsteiner, Big Sky Brewery Summer Ale, Highlands Hollow Spoon Tongue, and Tablerock Woodpecker Light. Of course when enjoying any of the above, it should be as cold as possible.

    BelaySlave aka Nick

    Live behind the Zion Curtain aka Caldwell, but work in Downtown Boise.

    32 now, turn 33 in September.

    My NEW bike is a Yeti 575 (YAY!!!). My other rides include a road bike, hardtail, and SS.

    I've ridden with CBro and Bombin4X. I've met smilycook, Earthpig, and lv2ride. I think I saw Irishbuddha one day in passing on Buck's.

    Member of SWIMBA, but I haven't done any volunteer work for 'em this year nor attended any meetings.

    Other outdoor pursuits: Hiking/backpacking, snowshoeing, XC skiing, camping. Former rockclimber that no longer wants to climb.

    I have good endurance, just not enough power especially for climbs.

    Odd fact about me as it relates to biking: The other day I unearthed my videotape which contained a show from Channel 7 (Exploring Idaho or Discovering Idaho or sumpin' like that) that was filmed in either 1995 or 1996. This particular episode focused on outdoor classes at BSU...kayaking, rockclimbing, and mountain biking. Well I was in a mountain biking class that semester and they used a couple of us in the shots. Good ol' Specialized Stumpjumper M2 with no suspension whatsover and me wearing bike shorts with a Barber-to-Boise tshirt tucked in. Good times!

    This is from last year's Labor Day weekend trip at Buckhorn Bar...

    note, not sure what's up with Mr. Adventrue, he did a mystery number to his shoulder when we were on the 20 mile trail. It's not seperated but???so he and the kid might be hiking.

    Joe From Kalispell, MT

    Howdy, I'm Joe Fisher
    Live in Kalispell, Montana
    I'm 48 years old/young.
    I've been riding for a long time, mountain bikes about 10 years, road 30 years or so. I'm not really into jumping, dh, stuff like that. I just like to go to the woods and ride, climb, etc..

    I only discovered this board a few days ago, I''ve not been riding as much the past few years as I used to. However, this should change with my new ride. :-)

    I just got a Rocky Mountain ETS-30 a few days ago. I"m in Missoula for a class (ends tomorrow) I rode the Rocky on a side trail up the Rattlesnake, I forget the name, but the trail was steep and covered with shale. That Rocky climbed like a scalded cat! At about the time my Kona would be slipping and losing traction, the Rocky just dug in and held on. The only reason I had to stop was cause the motor lost
    power. ;-)

    Bikes: Rocky Mountain ETSX-30 (first full boinger I"ve ever had)
    Kona Hot with RS Mag 20 front fork.

    Eric from Helena

    I'm 32 this fall; riding XC on a M2 Stumpjumper. I live in on the southern end of Helena, so I don't have to go very far to hit singletrack. The only person on the board I've ridden with to date is sfotex. Don't have any pictures of myself on this computer.

    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.

    Yet another

    Name: Irishbuddha or hey fatboy that was the last beer, Mike, flipper etc.

    Live: Above Viscypher and west of Earthpig and under the constant pressure of four females.

    Age: Old enough to know better but still trying to get away with it - 40 something!

    Have ridden with: Mark V Viscyperh, SNixon, Smilycook, Ryman, Twisted, Flipnidaho, Earthpig, Xylx. At least that is who I can remember. But at 44 my memory is constantly letting me down.

    Favorite beverage: Where to start? Of course Guinness unless there is anticipated spillage and then it is PBR. Then some where between hazelnut brown ale to a nice dark porter - oh, so many great beers. But we shouldn't forget all those great gins like Bombay and Hendrick's or the delightful Too Kill Yous like Don Julio, and last but not least nothing like snuggling up to a nice big heady cab.

    With all these great choices, morning requires another special brew. The grind and bean better make creama so thick and sweet it stands the pencil up.

    Favorite post ride snack: Cheese Puffs from the Co-Op shared with Pete the wonder dog. Anybody that has ridden in Boise very long, has seen Pete the fastest four legged Border Collie blow by. If you want to make a new friend, he loves Cheese Puffs.

    Favorite bike: The one I am on which might be an Inbred or something Titus.

    Measurements: 32-20, long top tubes, low standover (for short Irish legs), stout cranks, firm yet supple young grips on a set of wide bars, and a saddle that will go all day!

    Turn ons: Sharing tight twisty technical single track with good friends and then shots of Don Julio and Cheese Puffs for laughs.

    Turn offs: Eating dirt on sweet single track that was destroyed by 4-wheelers sporting thick unibrows and mullets.


    Mostly I love to ride and laugh with good friends!

    John Parker

    23 years old, 60 year old knees

    Bozeman and Missoula MT, currently Chamonix France

    Yeti 575

    I have ridden with NWMTB. Would like to do some riding in the sun valley area at some point though. . .

    Currently working as a MTB guide for 10fifty bike holidays, drinking tea with Brits in France and cleaning toilets on the weekends.

    Brew: Here its Hoegaarden as a nice beer, Bavaria 8.6 for that malt liquor buzz. Back home its PBR, OE, High life, or anything from deschutes brewery, or anything at all for that matter.



    EDIT: Now I'm back in Bozeman, MT keeping it real as an engineering grad student and getting out on the trail as much as a part time job will allow.

    The Bozone Brewery here has an excellent new tap room, I like most of what I've had there.

    nope, not smoking. That stuff's bad for you.....

    I can see where it looks like it, squinty eyes and my fingers holding something, but that's an optical illusion of the snow in the trees behind me.

    Oddly enough, that's the same thing my parents said when I e-mailed them the photos from that day at Brundage....

    Is that a vintage Blur you're riding in that photo? Would a vintage Blur be a 2003?

    Oh, to have the liver of a 23 year old, even if it comes with 60 year old knees!! Anybody who lists PBR and OE is my kind of boozer.

    Rampage - aka Glen

    Location - Boise Bench

    Age - 34

    Bike - 05 GF Cake 2 DLX (large as a barge) and 99 GF Joshua F4 (Raped to the max)

    Have ridden with - Not sure I've ridden with anyone on this board. I always seem to catch people on the trails, but never seem to get around to asking if they are from the board.

    Brew - Uhhhh, had to quit drinking... trying to conserve water... Not a big American Beer fan, grew up in Frankfurt Germany, so most American beers taste really watery. I'm much more of a 150 proof kind of guy anyway.

    Pics - none yet, need to get digicam.

    For a Blur that's very vintage.

    In the foothills there's no need to use a bike with suspension, so most of my vintage riding is done there. There's nothing wrong with the new stuff either.

    Yeah, I spent a lot of time in the foothills in '03 and '04 on a fully rigid singlespeed. Heck, even Connie and Bobs are easily rideable on a rigid SS. As for the "new stuff," I'm with you on that as well...I gave up my rigid SS to buy a 34 lb bike with 5 inches of travel!!

    I belong to a couple of other message boards...the soccer board I belong too is pretty damn huge...along the lines of MTBR huge. Anyhoo I'd guesstimate that there are probably around 10-20% females there with a very small number of them participating in discussions on a daily basis.

    I think just about anyone on MTBR can attest to the fact that there are alot of females MTB'ing out there, but I don't think females in general are into message boards that are not gender specific...from what I've observed in my years of surfing the net, message boards tend to be overwhelmingly male.

    However one running message board I belong to has a fairly even mix of females and males.

    does this ugly mug look familiar?

    are you friends with Paul Farley or Menge? if you're the same John, i remember you rippin' at the Bozeman skate park a few years ago. I used to be a die hard skater, but I haven't pushed around in over a year. the bike has taken over my off-snow season.

    Sorry I am late with this but just got back from a week long ride along the Oregon coast.

    name: swede

    bike: specialized epic

    ridden with: all the people who have already said they have ridden with me. I might add that of all the people I have met 100% have been friendly and fun (with tho possible exception of earthpig when he is kicking my butt...j/k)

    brew: I would say rootbeer but I don't drink pop either
