    ^ Interesting POV camera angle. ^

    Recorded wipe outs are the bomb! Thanks for posting yours. I wish I would have had my camera mounted and recording when I went off the trail and tumbled 150 feet down a super steep mountain side last November. That woulda been epic to watch.

    Guess I need to buy a camera.

    Wait, no, I haven't been on my MTB in like 2 years, and rail trail rides just aren't that exciting terrain-wise unless you're interested in crop tours.... Though I have had several almost "run-ins" with the local wildlife this summer.

    However it is neat to see the varied terrains people are riding. Some I wouldn't hesitate to fly through on my cross bike and others I'd be all freaked out even on a full suspenion tank.

    This thread has ALMOST made me want to buy a new MTB next spring.

    So I need a new front der. Not sure how it happened, but the cage on mine broke. Could have happened anytime between my first half-drunk night ride a couple of weeks ago, til I was loading the bike to go on last weekend's sh!tfaced night ride. It still shifts, but its sloppy, and even though I spend most of my time in the middle ring it clatters when i go high or low on the rear. Im thinkin SLX should do me fine, just need to start price shopping.

    Not my mtb, but one of my around-town bikes. MTB would be pointless, as nobody would see it on my daytime trail rides. I'd also be concerned about the wiring for the lights getting caught on branches.

    I just bought another solar and rechargeable battery powered set of multi-colored LEDs, plus a 4-AA battery powered set of color changing iced balls (), so now I'm all ready for the annual NightBright BikeParade in December.

    I already have a set of deep blue solar/battery lights running around the top of the rear basket on one of my around-town trikes. People love those lights, and they were only $9.99 at Target a couple days before Christmas last year.

    I also have my non-traditional bike flasher colors that I put in some formerly green or white lights recently-pink, purple, turquoise, and blue.

    That would be me! I almost always suck on the leaderboards for climbs, but I do much better on steep descents (must be the MTB part of me ). I'm only 150 lbs, but that's 20-30 pounds more than I should weigh at 5' 4".

    I have two QOMs on steep, rough, windy road descents. The only climbing QOMs I have are on roads and trails that very few women have ridden.

    haha i have a trail work day tomorrow followed by a closing shift at work... dont think im gonna get wrecked, and wreck (again.) one never knows though...i was planning a chill solo ride, but a couple of guys know about it so i may have unexpected company- the same company that i was with last weekend when things went south in a hurry.

    i tried to tell them i dont drink whiskey for a reason...but they didnt listen and insisted. some things can never be unseen.

    You've got a climber's build . If you're healthy and you're not losing muscle, I wouldn't change a thing. You're probably pretty good on the uphills.

    Please post pics and narrate....

    EDIT: Actually, no. Record with your vid cam, whatever you're doing, wherever you are. Vid clips don't necessarily have to be from on a bike do they???

    Is that your polite way of calling me a skinny ass ?

    Nah i really have to put some weight, i'm currently @62kg ( ~137lbs for you yanks ) for 172cm ( ~5'8'' ), so not much meat in these bones ! My current goal ( for 2013 that is ) is to build up at least 15lbs more, muscle of course and no body fat.

    Body fat is underrated.
