    Riding in Salamanca, Guanajuato...

    Hi guys,

    This past weekend, I went to Salamanca (where my parents live) and ride some trials there. The trails were dry and the weather was really cold. I went with my friend Héctor, our physical shape was not the best after the Christmas-new year period. We met at the beginning of the road to Cardenas at 7:00 AM and rode 13 km of road to started climbing to “La Cañada”. We got to the “presa de Mendoza” after some light climbing. After this point, the climbing continues until we got to “Presa del Zapote” and then we went down to “La Cañada”.

    It was very dry and cold and we were afraid to flat but fortunately this did not happen. I had some trouble to follow my friend, who was in better shape than me, my rush is heavier than his scalpel. However, when we got to technical sections and descends, my bike performed better than his.

    Here, you can see some nice pictures of this ride !!!.

    Cheers,

    Fidel.

    Wow!!!

    Nice trails and bike. The full Siemens attire gets you some style points too...

    I've never been at Guanajuato and I'd like to be there some time. Riding it should be cool!

    Those trails look like the ultimate proving grounds for XC-Racing machines. Now In understand why your two bikes are more Race oriented.

    Did you gave a break to the Yeti? Or is it packed lready for its travel to Mexico City?

    I think I'll organize a BLING shootout soon... Turners, Titus', Rocky Mountains, Yetis...

    Thanks for sharing and many thanks for the long overdue pictures

    For a BLING shootout I think nothing can beat a certain silver fork that's lying around. I've never seen a rigid fork disguized as a suspension fork.

    We can organize the shootout whenever you want. It would be very nice. Also, you are always invited to come and ride with us in Salamanca. It will be a pleasure to ride with you and rzozaya69 there, both are invited. We can arrange a trip to Salamanca !!.
    The Yeti is coming to Mexico city soon !!!. We will see each other in Chiluca Trials !!!.

    Cheers,

    Fidel.

    Good job! Buen lugar para rodar y buenas fotos

    Yo en particular he estado en Guanajuato solo en plan de turista pero me quede con ganas de regresar... claro en un dia no muy lejano que ya tenga auto trepare a mi flaca y nos apuntaremos hacia esa dirección, gran lugar lleno de cultura y de fiesta por las noches y por las mañanas para ir a rodar...

    Felicidades por las fotos y gracias por compartirlas!


    Saludos!

    Oh, well... that POS really deserves some bad rap. I'm happy to part with it.

    I may have someone to buy it though. The astronomic price is 300 pesos.

    Glad you're selling it...

    Some guy off from mercadolibre/deremate.

    But if you chek out the ad, you can say anything but that he is unaware. I can't say open wide it's a POS, but I pretty much describe it like that. It pisses me off when someone wants to take advantage of the buyer. It happened to me, I won't do it to anyone.

    Yeah.. I don't get tired to say I'm happy to part out with such a POS.
