    Good job! First Snow Ride........

    ...............Jonzie, Hickster & I hit Geisinger for the first ride in snow of the year. It was a good ride - much better traction than I would have expected in such conditions. Saw a few hunter - type vehicles in the parking lot, but didn't run into any on the trails.

    Are the Geisinger trails in Danville or Wyoming valley? If they are in the valley I'd love to hit them. Trail head?

    Jonz is CORRECT (Danville)

    The only things in Wyoming Valley are poser a**holes and people who have to put up with them...

    And, don't ask which one I am... LOL

    Good job! First Snow Ride.....

    HOLY OVERKILL, BATMAN!!! I want that Snowblower...err, snowdestroyer...err, snowpulverizer....well, you get the idea!!!

    Of course if you can't get ahold of a SnowTerminator this might also work. It could also be duplicated with a few thousand cans of Aqua Net hair spray and a Bic lighter!

    the Ivy handles really well, it's easier to recover a slide with a light stiff bike I think. Didn't ride with Andrew, but check my post on 650b forum. He had a cool bike today.

    I too had my first snow ride this year, was really fun cuz I got to finally try out my studded tires. They were great on the patches of ice I hit here and there. I was up near Jim Thorpe on the Broad Mtn Loop. Saw like 6 other cars with bike racks, didn't think that many people would be out. I want to hit up Geisinger one of these days too.

    Wyatt's bike.....

    Jeff, wyatt will have to elaborate more, but his bike isn't SS, it's internally geared. Or perhaps the builder himself would care to give us the lowdown. ManMonkey are you out there? We miss ya, dude!!

    Fleet is an understatement. He is a bike whore. Here is a very small sampling of bikes he's had past and present. Bear in mind he's owned so many bikes that's there's simply some that I don't have pictures of.
