    Here's a sampling of what we rode through today. It's roller coaster ride, no doubt! :)

    RandyBoy deserves huge credit here. He helped to build that beauty. It goes on like that for a few miles before the creek bed opens up and flattens out. Then a short uphill grind to where you catch the next trail which is a subtle version of the first. A bit more beginner friendly but fun and fast nonetheless. We hit a third section that ultimately dumped us out near the bottom of the nearly 5 mile fire road climb we did to get to the top. :thumbsup::):cool:

    I'd say that bit of video really captured the flavor du jour. Very cool.:band: I am thinking we did about 13 or 14 miles today, all said and done.

    so do you loosen up the linkage bolts too, maybe put bells on the spokes?

    I would LOVE to ride that trail! :D Then again, we probably have the same kind of trail around here somewhere. I just have to find and record it ;).

    I am happy to report that my riding partner Matthew is feeling much better after his crash just over a week ago. We went on a short singlespeed ride and rode those same short steep Land Park pimples that we climbed when I first bought my singlespeed.

    This was his first ride since the crash, I believe. The impact cracked his helmet, so I gave him my previous Bell helmet that I quit using when I bought my newer one.

    Here's part of our ride: Bike Ride Profile | Singlespeed ride with Matthew near Sacramento | Times and Records | Strava

    Singlespeed ride with Matthew by freighttraininguphill at Garmin Connect - Details

    The only mishap was a dropped chain on Matthew's bike because it was too loose.

    He is ready for the Hammerin' Wheels Beatty hill repeat challenge on New Years Day, and so am I. I believe the singlespeed riding has made us both a little stronger. Of course we will be riding geared bikes on Beatty!

    He had his GoPro camera on his helmet, and his footage of the ride looked and sounded much better than mine, so here it is complete with the chain incident.

    I think I'm going to start using my GoPro on my helmet too. It sounds much better than my ContourHD.

    helmet mount is nice because you can see what the rider is looking at. you lose a lot of perception of speed and terrain on trails.

    I don't get it.

    What does the size of the thread have to do with anything?

    All that creating another thread does is kill the original one slowly.

    What is the BENEFIT gained by creating another thread?

    The Last Ride of 2012
    Well me and the guys got in our last ride of 2012 yesterday. I had my GoPro 3 with me to capture all the goodies. This is the 3rd (and probably the best) GoPro vid I made so far. I've only been fooling around with this video making stuff since Wednesday. I posted my other two vids, including this one, in the Video/POV section.
    The guys I ride with call this trail N.U.T.S. We named it that because, well we wanted to name it that. lol. I hope you O/C guys like it.

    Enjoy!

    What does the size of a thread have to do with anything?

    IMO, all that does is make two threads on the same topic, and the original dies.

    It makes zero sense to me.

    That was awesome! I lose interest and can't watch more than five minutes of trail video. So, that was the perfect length. And I thought you did a fantastic job editing it.
