    Hi everyone....My wife and I just moved to MA from RI; big move I know. We've been riding trails all over MA for years but now that we're officially residents I wanted to pop in and say hi. Some pics of our bikes are below. See you out on the trails

    Nice bike!

    How's that Ikon treating you on the front? I have one on the rear of my HT, and have been thinking about running it up front, but worry about the lack of cornering knobs.

    BTW - It looks like your chain could be shortened a link or so. Might cut down on some chain slap.

    Antonio - The Ikons are riding nice for me, I have not noticed any issues with losing traction in the front on hard corners but I don't yet have a lot of miles on the bike. I also tend to run whatever tires I have and don't experiment much. This is my first time with a 29er and tubeless so I am still figuring out tire pressures and overall handling,

    Thanks for the tip on dropping a link - have not noticed chain slap yet but will keep an eye on it.

    Starting out mtb after 'crossing a few years. I have been riding in the Fells, Blue Hills, and a few times to Leominster. Anyone have any good recommendations for places to ride off the commuter rail?

    There's some GREAT riding in the Beverly/Manchester/Gloucester area. Greenwood ave is very close to the Beverly Farms stop. Gspot is a couple miles from the Manchester stop. B&Ts is very close to the West Gloucester stop. I'm not sure exactly how, but I'm fairly certain you can ride from Beverly to Gloucester on almost all singletrack. So you could take the train to Beverly ride to Gloucester and take the train back. Pretty sweet

    Willowdale is also only a couple miles from the Ipswich station.

    Haven't figured out pictures. I ride a cannondale caffine 4 29er.
    A lot of riding in the Midlesex fells, harold parker, Otis, and red tail trail and others in NH when I can. Always down to try new trails in the eastern MA area

As for my bike, I have a 2009 Kona Hoss Hardtail, and a 2011 Trek Scratch Air 9 which I picked up on Friday.
    Here's a pic of the Scratch.

    That is a nice Scratch! Let me know if you find any good trails for it (I may be moving to MA soon)

    Nice bikes and nice Kuat. I love my Kuat rack and the customer support is awesome even a year later.

    This is my latest addition to my fleet:



    This one will be my urban assault bike. I'm usually riding around the streets of Boston anyway. You can find me around the Charles!

    This is by far my favorite thread. I just wish it was bigger, with more pics of trails and bikes!

    Live in Hudson NH. Ride mostly at Lowell / Dracut State Forest and Russell Mill. Coming off a 1997 Avalanche GT hard tail, this is my first full suspension bike and I can not get enough of it.

    Why did I wait so long???

    I've lived in northern MA and southern NH. So i ride both states. This is actually Bear Brook in NH, on top of Catamount hill. A bit of a hike for southern MA residents, but i suggest you make the trip

    I'm out in Western Mass. I ride the old and new trails at Facing Rock in Ludlow, and also hit up Earls and B-St on my Sette Ace (photo to come). I also commute from Ludlow to Palmer as often as I can over Red Bridge on the "Old Lady" pictured here. It was my first mountain bike: 1999 Speshy Hard Rock Comp and she got me back into the sport and saved my life 2 years ago. Treated her to new hoops, tires, crank and cushy seat for her new role as my commuter.

    I live in North Central MA. I have ridden Maudsley State Park, Lynn Woods, Quabbin Reservoir, Tully Mtn., And Little Monadnock Family trails in NH. I can't post pics yet, but I ride my old dependable 96 Klein. I only live 25 min from Leominster, but have never ridden there, hopefully this summer.

    Old faithfull.

    Just moved back to Massachusetts after 5+ years in DC. Live in the Western 'burbs, go-to ride is Beddy but enjoy RM and the Fells (especially now that Orange is legal!) as well. Haven't had a chance to ride anything else yet but looking to explore.

    Here's my new ride, present to myself for getting a job up here. Thanks Brian and JRA! And no, I don't ride anywhere near well enough to warrant such a nice bike.
