    I guess my experiment is not exactly success. Gotta find a different spot for the camera.

    Shall I post moar? I also have a short steep rocky climb for freighttrain and a flowy-ish singletrack with some rocky sections take from the same spot.
    That's a real great vid you made there.

    Love the "out of the box" view.

    freighttrain, I just back, 17.1 miles total, 1695 ft of climbing, 1.5 hours. I've got it on strava, gonna take me a while to put together some video though. The actual tough part of the climb starts at 2 miles into the ride, climbs 957 ft in 5.5 miles, steepest grade 10.5%, I did it in 37:41, average speed 8.8 mph, on a 32x19 SS 29er, gives me an approximate average cadence of 60 rpm. It was tough, there was a few points where I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make it, but I did. Then I proceeded to climb every side shoot road up there before I came down. One thing I did learn though, as much as I like a Ground Control/Captain combo on my SS, it's not the best when you're blasting through corners at 32 mph coming down. I think that I may have found a new way to abuse myself. I even left the baggies and t-shirt home and went full lycra, haha.

    um, poopypants!!!! that wasnt an insult. i thought looked cool. i just liked watching your bouncy fork.

    here's another. kept it short. twisty with some chunkorz towards the end. We do a lot of geeky gum-flappin, so just ignore that (unless you're freight, she likes that )

    Cool stuff Nic, poopypants likes! That chunkorz looks good, you got to pick some up'n'down thru-the-chunk lines the next time so we can see you bounce around a bit more.

    Nice vid Sti, looks like a fun chunk of trail. Seeing leaves on the ground makes me think of fall time dampness, and slippery rocks and roots. I don't see much slippery out here, and very few roots.

    By all means, post 'em. This thread was started for just this sort of thing. The regulars that hang in the OC can share, without having to go chasing through a bunch of different forums.

    Thank you Mr. Magura, you are too kind.

    Here is the "flowy" video, I improved my best there today.



    Unfortunately, the last recorded sound in that piece is air escaping the rear tire so I had to hike the bike a couple miles back home.

    Back to the civilization


    And here is the climb for Freighttrain. 0.3m 6% ascent, loose rocks and some chunk.

    Looks like fun, nicole, that's the sort of trails that I rode back in Michigan. Just out of curiosity, does your bf ride with you, or does he do his thing and you do yours?

    Which video, at what time? I think I hit them all in the 1st vid.

    Edit: nevermind, I guess that comment belonged to Zebra pants.

    yes, he's been riding forever. We ride together often, but if he's working on weekends, then i get to go out riding with random forum hunks

    Thank you Opti. The leaves turn everything a bit into a crapshoot, at least they do it for me. They can be quite slippery even when dry, especially on slick rock. There are few fun sections on my daily trails but nothing comparable to your goodness. I got to ride in Az some day!

    I think I'm having too much fun these days. I created a thread to put your videos that belong on the cutting room floor.
    The cutting room floor--a home for your worst videos

    Sti--I'm not saying your video of your shock belongs there, but if you happened to post it up, I don't think anybody would second guess your decision

    Oh man that hurts. Even a pitch black video with skipping sound would not give me as solid headache like your masterpiece there!

    Nice vids everyone!

    Good log cleaning Nic!

    Sorry about the limp home Sti! Darn flats!!!

    I was thinking of doing a local loop ride today but I didn't sleep well last night and there is a first stage smog alert here today (extremely rare, anymore!). What I really wanted to do is ride to the top and take a bunch view pics. I have a spectacular view of the Northern Los Angeles area and on a clear day, it's like looking at a map. It's gonna have to wait. Still pics idea inspired by the Monz and others here who posted their pics.

    Kinda cute how everyone is posting uphill grunt vids now for Freighty. Looks like I'm going to have to hit Big Sycamore again soon and record the "Hell Hill" climb...

    Wow...just getting caught up on this thread. I love it. I love seeing everyone's normal, local, day to day, week in and week out rides. Keep em coming. Pix too.

    Everyone makes videos of their "Grand Bike Destination Trip" and those are cool, but these are too, in a different way.

    Sti, nice fork! and cool videos!

    , the riding together part. Well, maybe the random forum hunks part a bit too.

    Seriously, I'm glad that you guys ride together.

    No doubt she'd bury us on the steep extended grinds.

    Changed my helmet cam settings today from 1080p & 30 fps to 720p & 60 fps, holy smokes what a difference. The video rivals you guys running the Contours. I'm currently uploading one seriously long and uneventful video for freighttrain.
