    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?

    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.

    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.

    I poop Earthpigs for breakfast...

    Ive ridden with some of you. I've gotten pretty baked with some of you. I love Sierra Nevada more than Ivan the Terrible loves his double dong. I represent the freedom to choose to not believe in heaven or hell (or virgin populated planets), and to mistrust the people that do. I have ridden my bicycle to work EVERY day for the last 464 days. (yes, I counted).

    I have to give you a ring?? So does that mean we have to be engaged to ride together? I don't know that you'll get a lot of takers.

    But hey, I'm a family guy with a similar profile, (except the no-brew insanity!) I live in SW Boise, drive an SUB (sports utility beater), have 2 dogs, don't like either one, really. We'll disagree on Shimano and other semi-religious topics no doubt, but that won't keep me from riding with you or anybody else for that matter.

    I'm from the other side.

    Location: Jackson

    Age: 23

    Bike: Ventana X-5
    Ventana El-Cuervo (in the works)

    Occupation: Own and opperate Alpenglow Ski Valet. Just finishing a great first year delivering skis and snowboards to Jackson valley customers.

    Not sure how many of you all get over on this side of the hills but I'd sure love to see where you all ride. I know about some of the stuff but not very much.

    Hope to see you on the trails sooner than later.

    I'm new to the board...so glad to meet everyone!

    I'm Mandi, 24 years old.

    I live in W. Boise on the verge of Meridian and Eagle.

    Haven't ridden with anyone...yet. I'm still recovering from shoulder surgery, but by mid-April I should be good to go!

    I ride an old '98 Specialized FSR Extreme (yeah, the bright freakin' green one!) I hope to get a new one sometime next year...gotta save some $$ first!

    My fave brew is anything Amber...is it a cliche to say Fat Tire-it's my old standby.

    Hey mtn man, let's see some porn of your X-5! I rode a rental (and very thrashed) FSR XC over in Jackson last fall and was wishing I'd had my X-5 with me. I'm loving my X-5 even more these days after swapping out the stock rockers for the 6" set. I kept the stock shock, which nets 5.32" of rear travel. I have to say it made the bike feel much plusher and reactive over small bumps. If you haven't tried the 6" rockers, I highly recommend it, especially if you're running a long fork on the '04 X-5, which had the steeper HT angle. Good stuff.

    I would love to share my porn but it's in pieces right now. I'll have to post some up in the next month. I haven't done the 6" rockers for the sake of $$$$$. I have done some serious riding and drops and haven't had any problems in 5" so I don't see the need to change now. It is an '04, size small. I love the thing to death.

    Do you buy stuff from Larry? I used to work for him before I moved up here that's the only reason I ask. Earthpig, do you ever get over to this side of the mtns? I enjoy reading your posts and seeing pics. Keep it up man.

    I use to own a couple of Specialized's (wish I never got rid of my M2 Stumpy at the '04 Swap), but jeez that green scheme they had for a couple of bikes a number of years ago is .

    BelaySlave: Yeah, the old greeny with triple crown fork (can you say heavy?) and a old Delux on the rear...it's a bit bright! Everything is stock except some new Kenda tires, a few chains and of course brake pads-a tribute to good old Specialized! At least you won't be able to miss me on the trail!

    rocknrollbarbie: sounds good!

    Location: Nampa, soon to be exiled to Stepford Springs

    I haven't ridden w/anyone on this forum. I just moved here and have been lurking to get the "lay of the land". The folks on this forum have been very friendly & helpful.

    Bike: 2000 S-Works FSR until I take my '06 Stump Pro out on its maiden voyage this weekend. Its off to ebay for the S-Works.

    Beer: I'm not picky but if I had my choice...Guinness, Urquell, anything by New Belgium. I had a Black Imperial Stout by Full Sail for the first time a couple of weeks ago...damn fine beer.

    I don't have any pics of me riding. The only bike related pic is of me wrenching back in the day:

    Mine too - I'm waiting on a stiffer, more "abuseable" wheelset from Larry (which answers your question). I bought my frame directly from Ventana (it's an '04, size L), but if I need wheels or other expensive parts, I usually call Larry.

    I was over on that side of the state twice last year - once in February to board at Targhee, and then once in September with the family after a couple of days at Yellowstone. I wasn't going to ride, so I didn't bring my bike, but the bug bit me really hard and I had to rent a bike and ride. After seeing a very small portion of the trails, I have the bug really bad to go back to Driggs/Jackson with my X-5 for a long weekend, maybe in August. I'll definitely give you and rideit a buzz if I head over that way.

    As for the 6" rockers, they're not really necessary if you're running the length of shock recommended by Ventana for the '04 X-5, which I think is ~ 19" from axle to crown. However, I've been running a 20.5" a-c Zoke Z1 FR, which slackened the angles quite a bit. With the 6" rockers, combined with the longer fork, the angles are probably back close to stock. I wrote a detailed review of the change from 5" to 5.32" on the Ventana board.

    Good job! Hello, everyone

    Name: Jeff
    age: 44 yrs. young

    Married, 3 kids, Federal employee, but working part-time in local bike shop because I figured if I was hanging out there, I might as well get paid.

    Mostly a roadie, got started while I was in Holland with the Air Force during LeMond's hey-days. Recently got a Spec. Stumpy Hardtail and now I can't stop daydreaming about epic mountain bike rides.

    Haven't ridden with anyone, yet, but I hope to meet some of you on the trails in the future.

    AKA: Face Plant (Roll Call)

    I'm new on the forum. I ride infrequently (so I hear) with Earthpig, so thought I'd chime in...

    Nicknames: Stitch, Trauma King, Face Plant... see a trend here?

    Live in: Boise North End

    Age: 37 (but, the arthritis is all injury related... as Indiana Jones said, "It's not year's honey, it's the mileage.")

    Bike: a well-loved, but horribly neglected, 2000 Santa Cruz Superlight. A nicely set up rig, but poorly ridden.

    Have ridden with: B.O., Stitches, bandages, hangovers, etc... Oh, and with Earthpig.

    Brew: Scotch & Soda preferred.

    Seriously people, if you ever get a chance to ride with sidecranky, make sure you carry smelling salts, gauze, trainers' tape, needle and thread, a cell phone, your Life Flight card, and one of those thingamajigs that electro-shocks a person's heart to start beating again would also be helpful.

    New to the forum, thought I'd chime in

    Hello everyone,

    I just found this forum a little while ago and have been lurking .

    My name is Harry

    I'm in Boise, Foothiils East, between the Table Rock and Rocky Canyon trail systems.

    I'm 46 and have been mountain biking for a little more half of my life. (You'd think I'd have learned to ride by now! )

    Bike - saving my pennies to buy a 5-Spot to replace my 2001 Sugar 2. Also ride my Bianchi 'cross bike. I'm occasionally spotted on either a Fisher tandem or Burley tandem, depending on which of my 2 boys I can convince to hit the dirt with me. (When we get the whole family out my wife pilots the Burley.)

    I've probably seen many of you on the trails, and I'm looking forward to meeting up with you on rides; sounds like you have a lot of fun together.

    As far as brews go, there's always some Sierra Nevada in the the fridge.

    It's all dirt-star down there! That's right 25th Street - REPRESENT!
    Okay, I hear what you're saying - so y'all can guzzle tequila mid-ride, and I END UP IN THE HOSPITAL... at least I got the good meds while you had the hangover... And, I got the nurses, too. so, there!

    Most people would NOT know what a CR7 is much less the original Supercaliber (my first ever race bike with Suntour XC Pro components) or the Procaliber... Nice classic bike although it maybe hard to find an Evolution sized fork for it though. They sure were quick bikes and LOT of fun...
