    MTBR is such a great, supportive resource.

    When I first arrived it had been over ten years since I had ridden and I was a fair bit behind the technological times. I harvested so much great information from searching and asking here and it saved me cash and time and got me out there on the trails at a time I really needed a healthy outlet.

    Well I hit another rough patch lately, nothing I can’t handle but enough to keep me to busy to participate on the forums or keep a consistent ride schedule and lo and behold I receive a rep From Tone’s asking where I’ve been expressing hope that all was well with me.

    The Holiday season with all the stresses entailed therein are upon us and here a member reaches out with impeccable timing in a manner that really lifted my spirits. It’s funny how a small gesture can really go very far to lift someone up and I felt compelled to express my humble gratitude to Tone’s and the entire MTBR community for everything. This serves as a reminder to me how my attitude and actions may often times have a greater effect then I may be aware of at any given moment and I hope it will for others as well.

    It may be a little early, but I want to wish each and every one of you a merry Christmas.

    Thank you, I find humor is a powerful cure all for a heavy heart and I am laughing a lot lately. I’m good

    I have a line on a killer little single speed hardtail and if I am able to secure the sale I will have something for nocturnal urban assaults. I figure it will be easier to get more ride time in if I can just jet out my front door and go make my own trails, plenty of challenges on the street for an old bmx’er to tackle.

    And I can’t agree with you more about Tone’s, but really everyone here has been great.

    I was on and explored other forums before this one and on all the other ones I found there were more trolling and flame wars going on the actually conversations. When I found this one I couldn't believe that this many people and most (I would say 99.9% ) get along with out to many flame wars.

    It is like nirvana, oh wait did I use that right or was it just to corny?

    oh ya Mery Christmas to you too

    Jon - that was a nice post - I'm new here and don't know a lot about a lot, and who's who, but I have to say your post rings a good bell for me.

    Like I said, I'm new here, but so far I am having a good time taking it all in. MTBR seems like a good place to hang out!

    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good ride!

    I had a '79 Mag Scrambler, metallic cherry red with black mags and my brother had the yellow mags with a sort of goldish brown metal flake colored frame. Those things tipped the scales at close to fifty pounds but man they were awesome.

    Those were some good memories. I think someone’s first 20" bike is huge mile marker in ones life. I'm not a daddy so I'm a little jealous of you guys who get to live vicariously through your children.

    I’d like to see CHUM post another vid of his son rippin around that little pump track after the holidays if he ends up with a new ride- VRUM VRUM

    That's pretty much how I wandered in as well. Pretty decent group of guys, all in all.

    Glad you're back and I hope whatever kept you away resolves in your favor. Merry Christmas to you!
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    You were ugly yesterday. You seem to have gotten over it.

    Merry Christmas Jon, welcome back!

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. It gets better. Trust me.

    This site is not quite as great as the days when Jerk Chicken or Speed Dub Nate posted here regularly, but it's still fine. Perhaps a tad more childish, but still fine.
