    Thanks! My old bike's frame got too small and I figured I could get away with less travel. I got to spend a few hours on it before it snowed, and it is sweet!

    That's funny.. if I remember correctly, you & I posted often in the Yeti forum with same black 04 575 frames. Is this an addition or replacing your fs?

    Here's my ride, '07 Chumba XCL.

    Just moved to Charlestown from San Diego, so I don't know where I ride yet! But I'm guessing Middlesex Fells and Lynn Woods will be favorite spots:

    That's right. I sold the 575 this winter. Loved the ride, but wanted something different. I used the money from the sale to buy a used Salsa FS frame (not yet built) and the Evil (SWEET!!!!). I actually almost got a 456, but the deal on the Sovereign was too hard to pass up. Do you still have your Yeti?

    Welcome to MA - the riding here is great. PM me if you ever ride in the Boston area.

    Nice bike. Welcome to MA. The Fells kind of blows. Most of the good trails are banned by the hiking nazis. Lynn Woods rules. You'll also need to check out Harold Parker and Vietnam. You'll also want to do some summer road trips to Exeter/Ft.Rock, Kingdom Trails, Highland, etc.

    Cheers!

    Good stuff. Are there any group rides around those spots? In other words, I hate to ride alone as I get lost frequently .

    By the way, I have a road trip lined up to Rays in Cleveland on Feb. 28. Super pumped.

    Yeah, group rides galore. You'll see postings once stuff gets ride-able. Local trail knowledge is key around here. Stuff isn't marked too well and there are too many rabbit trails to get sucked into.

    Nope.. sold it for a player-to-be-named-later. I've been surprisingly content on the Inbred though, and haven't given much thought to another fs yet.

    I hail from Rockport, MA. My stomping grounds are Lynn Woods, B&T's, Dogtown, and a bunch of other local North Shore trails.
    Since I broke the ML I figured I'd update things. The ML was nice but not up to the thrashing that I gave it. I've been on the El Guapo since last June and this thing is tremendous. It's a much better fit for my style of riding and these trails

    Norton Farm area, Gloucester

    Hey Woodyak, I'm just across Dogtown from you! Been in Gloucester for 8 years now, 3 in Rockport before that. I've come across so few bikers in Dogtown over the years...a nice little haven of solitude sometimes.

    Dogtown, B&Ts, Bev Farms, Lynn, Fells, and HP are my favored stompin grounds.

    Pic is of Norton Farm side of DT.

    That would be cool.

    I think I've covered most of Dogtown, but ya never know.

    I've only been in B&Ts 3 times though. I could use some guidence over there for sure!

    I'll drop you a line when either things freeze up enough or clear.

    As you wish. I went over to HP for about an hour today. Was pretty fun, though tiring and very hot. Here are some pics. My first time out on the trails.

    Slightly over-exposed cause I accidentally left my camera in manual mode and didn't adjust anything. Adjusted it best I could with my amatuer skills.


    Jenkins lot gate.


    Ouch. My first battle wound. Happened less than ten minutes in. Those Kona pedals hurt.


    After shower.


    And she did get a little dirty. Rode through a few small patches of mud.

    Ouch!

    HP is a bit technical for a first ride. Still, it's one of my fave places. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    BTW - I find Great Brook Farm to be a great place for beginners. Fun, but less techie, you should give it a shot.

    I mostly ride this Maverick ML7:



    Just got it this spring, and love it to death. It's a lot dirtier now than in the photo.

    I do most of my riding at the Fells, simply because it's really close to home and I can get there pretty quick without having to drive.

    I agree that Great Brook is a good spot for beginners. It's got some easy-but-fun stuff, and some optional tougher stuff when you're ready to step it up. And compared to a lot of New England trails, its pretty well mapped and marked. I go there from time to time because it's a fun laid-back ride, and I know the trail system pretty well so I can go ride for a few hours without having to consult a map or hunt around to find the good stuff.

    Otis is pretty cool, but too far away to be worth the trip to me -- except in the winter when it's the only place not snowed over. (Actually, some of the Great Brook trails are open to bikes year round, and are a lot of fun in the winter once the snowshoers and hikers have packed the snow down a bit.)

    I really like what I've seen of Harold Parker and Lynn Woods, but I don't know those trail systems so well, and recently I haven't been in the mood to put effort into learning a new area. So I usually just hit the Fells.

    Thx I'll have to try Great Brook sometime soon. Yeah there were some spots I hit that were well above my skill lvl, and I got quite lost as to lack of markers. But I did have fun.

    Yep, I did point it down.
    Got to ride it a bit and I know I will love it. We should ride when the snow melts and the trails dry up.
