    I'm pretty sure he's running the same size as me XL. That Five Spot is also the new TNT rear end. One of the Interbike Demo bikes.

    Do you think you could make Chiluca on the 15th of January? With 3 of us, we'd definitely qualify as a Mexico Turner Gathering.

    Don't have any resizing software (well I think...) I have just recently bought the camera and I'm still on the learning part, thanks for the offering I'll try something more today if not I'll take your kind offer, I'll let you know in advance!
    Nevado to Valle are abbout 60 - 70 km last weekend I did the ride with the "Bici y montana" people from Oxtotitlan (?) to Valle, we did 40 km. Great ride and a perfect day! There is some single track, some climbing and some downhill involved, also have some pictures of that ride. I hope to go back soon so I can re-do the route. I still need to do the Nevado - Oxtowhatever part (about 30 km) with the bike!
    Antonio, I was going to do San Panchito-Valle last weekend! I've done it about 3 times and it's awesome. Maybe between you and me we can guide. Only thing we need is someone to drop the band at San Panchito and pick us up at Valle.

    Both are XL, I am 6'3" or 1.93 cm in more Mexican terms. I had always used smaller bikes before and believe me it makes a BIG difference in handling! (positive that is)

    I will be there for sure, although it looks like the Flux for me since I am currently sans a fork on the Spot. Bring the cameras!

    Nope, didn't like the fork and I sold it. It had the Fox Float XTT that locks out when the terrain is smooth but I like to have that buttery feeling all ride long, who cares about effinciency! I got a RS Revelation for half the price I sold the XTT, hopefully it will be here by January

    Well... it sucks. Fortunately you found a very convenient solution.

    I'll have a Suntour available by early January if you want to borrow it!

    Hey!!! Finally someone from MTY showed up!!!!

    I rode a while up there... mostly Chipinque, Huasteca and the feared Las Adjuntas!

    Gotta love the climb to El Pinal at Chipinque where you get up to the site where you launch with parapente. The descend is a blast!!

    The way down from Villa de Santiago to Las adjuntas is not for the weak of heart...

    I hope to see more people from MTY here!
    Bienvenidos!

    Enrique the Voltion is entirely on wide smooth open fire roads and pavement.
    I used to live there and there are lots of better trails out there for you to enjoy.

    There`s a trail in the Huasteca which i believe was cut by the middle but its fun, there`s another one in Carr. Nacional near the CEMEX sport center, and there are lots and lots of trails that are taken care by the diferent clubs.
    You should go to Zeta Bikes, Bicicletas Ranchito, Power sports the one in La Silla, and they can tell you when and where the trails are.
    BTW you should start thinking about a suspension fork.

    Dont worry the trails i am mentioning arent techical at all, and they have "escape" routes of big clims, there are others more technicl so f you feel up to them you are gonna have a blast.
    Lesson of the month: Don`t run of a cliff on your Mountain Bike. It`s quite painful.

    Maybe El Voltion is not that techy, but the other ride he posted which goes thru las Adjuntas it is technical. I was there too.

    Never been to Las Adjuntas so i take your word for it; I recomended him to check at the stores for other trails because he has El Voltion as his favrite one, and i think(obviously i might be wrong) that if he knew other trails over there he would like them over that one.

    I never meant to imply tat he doesnt ride tech i dont know him so that would be out of line, besides it shouldnt be my business i was just trying to be helpfull.

    When i lived there it was very difficult for me to find trails with singletracks or race courses.
    And i had to visit stores more than once to get directions. What i felt best was to get promos of xc races in order to have maps of the trails. That`s easy to do there since they hold races twice a month in NL. Unlike here in Mazatlan where races are being held twice a year

    Got it. Sorry If I sounded rude. Not my intention.

    Yeah, MTY has a VERY strong mtb activity... it needs just more exposure becuase even in MTY not too many people know about trails and stuff.

    Actually it surprises me not to find more people from MTY on these boards. Cool people to hang around with too.

    God, I loved being there. Having the Fundidora as a trianing spot is unbelievable!

    Indeed its an awesome ride! To bad you couldn't come! We had a beautifull day, not too cold and with lots of sun, have some pics, I'll share them when I solve the current issue with my home machine...
    I've only done this ride one time but if you feel confident enogh I think we could do the guiding! This week I'm on hollyday but I can find out if prices on truck rentals, (from D.F. I assume...) maybe something like that could be easier! Anyways let me know your thoughts.

    Hi, just to thank you for the GIMP advice, I've already downloaded it and rezised some pictures... I think it's enough for my needs so I'll keep it for a while before going to the Centro deals...
    It is indeed a cool ride, we did in about 6 hrs. with 3 pedaling hours efective, It sure can be done in less time... Have some pictures, whe i find wich bit of my software is blocking the upload images button I'l post them!

    Hi everybody, I'm Sergio:
    - 32
    - from Mty.
    - mostly trail riding
    - have a Specialized enduro 03, Z1 FR 04, stan's converted wheels.
    - everything at chipinque: el chile, pinal, deslavada (going downhill too), epazote, don toño; and la huasteca singletrack.
    - cocacola
    I'm looking forward to go to las adjuntas, and chipitin, but working hard to get back in shape after almost 3 months without riding (shame on me). But my riding buddies are such a bunch of mandilones that I got sick and tired of waiting for them and now I'm back riding again on my own, two weeks ago.
    so anyone goin' there or with a similar situation feel free to e-mail, and hopefully ride more often and know more trails. Cause a
    I know we have a lot. BTW Does anyone have visited Potrero chico at Hidalgo N.L? don't u think would be fine?

    Hi Pablo... nice to see you around! If you see the main Mexico place, we're having a gathering in two weeks. You're invited to come if you want.

    'el Chico' is just awesome, we have to go there someday, I hope soon.

    The reason we speak english is because we're such a snob son-of-b.... naaaahhh! The reason for the language was that MTBR.COM is an english speaking site, and we want to make the site for everybody at mtbr.com and promote Mexico and it's trails. We knew that the english would be a barrier for us mexicans. If you have some trouble writting down in english you can in spanish, perdon por la molestia.

    Saludos y viva México c....

    Hi Fellow Bikers del sur! I am a 37 year old father of 4, living in Santa Fe, NM who loves to dip below the border at every opportunity. I just bought a Rocky Mt. ETSX-50, that I am adjusting to slowly. I fall a lot. Thanks for welcoming me to your fold!

    Welcome!!!

    What a terrific ride you just got!!!

    Rocky_Rene has already one year on his bike and the frame and bearings are running as smooth as day one. Sturdy nice bike... aside to some Titus, Turners and such around here, those RM's don't feel any envy. Plain cool bikes.

    Congratulations!!

    Yeah... check out the sticky of "El Chico" and keep an eye open for the normally arranged rides over here.

    Hope to meet you soon on the trails.

    PS... On the knee issue... you may want to raise your saddle a little and check your cleats if you use clipless. Go easy on it and make sure you warm up properly.

    I have knee aches too, never busted it completely, but I have to be gentle with my left knee.

    - Age
    36

    - Location
    Cancun

    - Riding style
    Cross-Country (just 3 years in the bike world)

    - Your bike
    I start riding with a very heavy bike, a Turbo Inixia, I don't regret cause it was great, as it is as heavy as a bulldozer I got myself a really nice fisical condition, more than 2 years and a half later using this torton!!, I decide to buy me a nice and good mountain bike, so I have now and amazing and beatiful 2006 Specialized Hardrock Pro

    - Favorite trail
    of course the most beautiful trail I ever been, from Punta Sam to Isla Blanca, you ride just a few meter from the most beautiful ocean you will ever be, and in the other side, some times, sond dunes, jungle, rocks, it's more like a 25km cross country, the hardest is to ride on the sand, or just after it rained a lot of mud!!!

    - Favorite drink
    Sauza hornitos or absolut with toronja, but if we're talking about riding, lemon levite water

    How funny, I'm buying a HardRock for myself too, or if I have some more money, a used Heckler.

    Keep me updated on how the HardRock performs please! jajaja
