    First Official Mexico MTBR Mini-Gathering!

    OK guys, let's get this party started right!

    The Mods did a recon mission yesterday to El Ajusco, guided by the able 545cu and ElMadaleno. and I've got to say it looks like a good place for our first little shindig.

    The Place: SNT, Ajusco (map to follow)

    The Date: Sunday, March 5th

    The Time: (to be announced)

    I'd like to do something involving camping there on the Saturday night if possible. Maybe get a Saturday afternoon ride in, too. Any takers? Any info on camping? (Edit - Camping is GO!!)

    Let's get a commemorative t-shirt, hat or some such thing put together. Who's got connections?

    How about a parts swap? Wusses 4X race? Old men's Downhill? Raffle with prizes? What do want? Tell us here!

    I'm part of the Organizing Comitee so I can't give too much opinions, but I'd rather listen to the others.

    A 4-Wuss race would be very cool... we can even do a King of Mountain competition with a little twist... what about a price (a tire tube patch kit or a tire valve cap ) to the fastest guy UP the 4X course. More than two steps off the bike and you're out.

    Anyway, we'd love to have your impressions and ideas.

    Also, anyone knows if a BBQ can be made up there?

    Yeah... the one who find it will get as prize a fantastic SR Suntour XCP-75... all elastomers and gunk inside. With some unbelievable useless 75mm travel and the crappiest performance you can desire from a fork!!!

    As far as I'm concerned, it's on!

    Let's have a pow-wow this weekend about getting stuff organazized. BBQ, hats, t-shirts, thongs, whatever.

    I'm a little disappointed we won't be able to do the SR Suntour throwing contest, although the first Warp commemorative 4x tabletop hillclimb is a must!

    I definitely want to go Saturday and camp. Anyone else?

    Hello, 1-2, 1-2, is this microphone on? Come on people.

    Let's then do the Phaon throwing contest... whoever get's it aligned into the right headset wins a semi-new SwitchBlade!

    Let's do the 4X stuff again but we'll give Warp a motocross or something so he can get up!

    Well.. actually... I didn't climb that, so I don't know what I'm bragging about.

    As to camp, I'm 99% sure I'm on! We would just need to know if we would need to walk all our stuff from the trailhead to the campsite or not. So, it would be a saturday hike, sunday ride

    OK. I'd like to do a t-shirt or hat. I've got some ideas for it and I'll work on the design (I knew those 6 years of college would eventually be useful).

    Does anyone have a connection for printing them?

    email me:

    Hey you mind if I join you "recon mission"?. We could go with a lot of time to get all the way up and down through the downhills. That would be a good opportunity to get to know those trails before the gathering.

    How tall are you? Might be able to help with something OK-ish.

    PS. there's no shame in riding a cheap bike, it's just a shame to not be riding.

    I'm all in for a ride this sunday... I think I can have the 'blade running for that day for its maiden ride and continue the shakedown of the Phaon (now hot-rodded to suit my weight).

    Anyone can have Madaleno coming along with his Spot?? That bike's gotta have spider webs in the hubs by now... he's got the Rev and the DHX for it, it should be up and running.

    Tacu... I'm going to give you the same advice Baron Manfred Von Richthoffen (aka the Red Baron, World War I german aerial ace and MVP of that war with 80 enemy planes - officially, it could be like 20 more that weren't credited for lack of witnesses - shot down) used to give to the boys in his 'Jagdstaffel'.... "It's not the box, it's the man in the box"

    By riding those "crappy" bikes you're getting your skills honed and your teeth sharp. Controlling a bike of inferior performance only makes for a terrific rider that will be able to brake later, accelerate faster, jump higher, drift the bike and else; much better when he get s the chance to get a better ride.

    Not long ago, Rocky_Rene was riding a steel-framed-girl's-FULLY-rigid Benotto bike. We could make all the fun we wanted out of his ride... but the laugh was his when we hit any climb. The guy really rocks going uphill and in less than two years of riding he's made of himself a solid all-around rider with fine technique and nice skills.

    Not long ago either, I was riding nothing else than a Turbo Excess (Excess comes from the Excess weight that was around 20 kilos - over 40 pounds for IS guys). That bike was the one I got my record of 59.9kph when going downhill and it scored 2,600km in one year. It served me well and made me a better rider.

    Aids continously show us how wimpy are some of us by riding his trusty bike at the same pace we do on better rides. Sometimes faster.

    So, as others have said, there's no shame on riding ANY bike. Just ride the sheit out of your bike... ride it like you stole it and don't get influenced by guys like us who already made some coin (or have acquired some debt or patiently saved some dough) or have some really bad ego trips.

    Ride YOUR bike. Get to know it. Get to be a better rider. Be patient and time will bring the bike you always wanted. I'm talking from experience here. All these folks know how hard has been for me to get the frame/fork I have now. It'll take me long to pay for it... but hey! I can't work only for diapers and bills!
