    They're not "action" shots, but they do show some nice scenery - all within 45 minutes from my house. These are all with my soon to be winter bike only Bear.

    It's not a good ride if you don't scare yourself at least once.

    Hi Ya !

    I couldn't help but notice Barrier Lake and Mt. Baldy in the background of your second pic. Is that off the Prairie View trail ?

    Where the first and third taken ?

    I'd like to do those someday but I'll have to stick to the Stoney trail and Lake Minnewanka until I get myself a decent set of lungs.

    Ding ding ding ding - we've got a winner. You're absolutely correct. Prairieview in the second pic. First pic = Cox Hill (personally my favorite ride around, especially when combined with Jumpingpound). Pic#3 = Moose Mountain Fire Lookout (I dented my downtube in 3 places on that ride going down hard in the scree).

    We did Minnewanka this summer and when we were leaving the parking lot, about 8 emergency vehicles pulled in as a result of the griz attack. We did Soul Brother the night before the griz attack there. Over 10 years in the mountains almost every weekend and still no encounter. I did carry 2 cans of bear spray this summer because of all the sightings and attacks.

    I love where I live. The snow absolutely sucks though (biking>skiing).

    I am really lucky and I never take it for granted. I sure like riding other places though - there's a ton of really good trails here, but it feels like I've ridden them all about 70 billion times now.

    My recent trip from Moab.

    Here's a pic from Porc Rim on ole reliable - the Stinky. The first two pics are at the drop down to the creek towards the end of the ride.

    The old line is gone now and the option is to:
    A. walk
    B. take a right immediately after you come through the notch and ride the off camber rock which is fairly easy
    C. Go a few feet past that route and huck onto the rock slab and try to control the speed before you huck off the rock and land below.

    I chose route C. Needless to say, the Stinky was more than up to the challenge.

    The other pic is earlier in Porc Rim as well.

    Cheers,
    EB

    nice pic bulletrdr...

    ... as far as what happened to my leg, i just went down in the mud. the cuts weren't too bad, but there were quite a few of 'em. when combined with the steady rain that was falling, it made for a pretty impressive show. luckily it wasn't nearly as painful as it looked...

    Daughter's birthday present

    Last month, I bought my daughter this Kona Hula for her birthday. It has been ridden almost daily, both around the neighborhood and at the local trail.

    Only ride that there was a camera with us since I got the Coiler. A crappy picture since my back was killing me that day. Just playing around on the smaller set of DJs. The build has changed slightly since then. I threw on a RockShox Pike SL and a MRP chainguide.

    Couple pics from a trip to Colorado. Problem is, I'm usually the photographer, so pics of the new Coiler are few and far between! One from a black-ops DJ area and one from the Pike's Peak area.

    Couple of new pics.

    Gotta represent on the '02 Stinky Primo since it's the bike that just keeps on tickin'...... This is at a local flowpark close to my house where we've got some fun tables and stepdowns..

    The next week, I cased this same gap and bent the steel steerer tube on my 66rc. Thankfully, 'zocchi is gonna be able to press a new steerer tube into it. I've still got to pull my headset out to make sure my frame is ok, but it looks like it's fine.

    A little DJ session from back when my back was really killing me (October-ish?). Probably wasn't a good idea to go riding. Photographer wasn't used to taking action shots, so... most are a little too early or too late. Some of themm are a lot bigger than they look. Old build.

    1. well... I was starting a table top... or maybe I was ending it.

    All the prior pics were absolutely splendid...kind of feel ashamed of the paltry few I took while riding. And I still have to work on resizing them smaller so they can post here. Aiggh!

    ANd I want to know how all the cool folks got their avatars!

    I'll jump in a bit late. Cyclocrossin' the Explosif at the Trashmore Cross in VA Beach.


    The only pic of my Scrap in action is from 05 NCAA MTB nat's. The "Knar factor" was pretty high on the DH course they cut the day before the race. So I'm happy I didn't kill myself on a hard tail after racing the XC/Short Track/Dual Slalom in the previous two days.

    I don't see many of these on here so why not. First ride on my newly built Dawg Primo. Unfortunately, not many pictures, but these are a few of the better ones.

    Here's a few images.

    I'm cleaning out my computer and found a few pics.

    Pic #1 - Getting some air on my old-skool Bear almost exactly a year ago.....this was my 2nd ride back from ACL surgery. I'm not very bright.

    Pic #2 and 3 - some recent air on my Stinky. A week after these pics were taken, I came up way short on this gap, cased it hard and bent the steerer tube on my 66. Doh!

    Chers,
