    Chiming in

    They call me Tom or TurboTom, the turbo has nothing to do with my riding. I am a car guy by nature :-) I am 29 years old. The Mt Top trails are my normal stomping grounds, but I have been known to hit up trails from Jim Thorpe to Merli-Sarnoski and a few in between. I ride an 06 Speacialized FSRxc.

    Here I am on the Summit View trail in Mt Top

    Greetings from W.Philly

    What up party people!

    Serge from W. Philly
    I'm 34 yo and into all things bike oriented. First it was touring, then fixies, now mountain biking. I ride a rigid SS 1998 GF Aquila, because I like to do things the hard way
    When I get the chance to ride, I shoot for the Wiss, but occasionally I end up lost at Belmont. Thanks to the good information I have found here at MTBR, I may start to branch out to some of the mtb spots farther afield. I typically ride alone, because my friends have more money than time. I, however, have the opposite problem. Pleased to meet yous.

    I'm Jonathan, 38, from Yardley. I ride a K2 Crush. Just started riding a couple months ago. I ride at Core Creek a lot because it's only 5 minutes away.
    But I also hit Mercer and Pennypack. Really looking forward to hitting more trails/parks in the future.
    I am a member of Singletrack Attack Mountain Bike group (a meetup.com group) and usually ride with people from that group. But always interested in riding with new people (as long as I can keep up! LOL!).

    I'm Jonathan, 25, from Bensalem. I ride a Santa Cruz Chameleon on the trails and a Trek 1200 on the road. I usually ride at Core Creek, Neshaminy, or Penny Pack. On rare occasion, I'll ride out at the Wiss or at Blue Marsh.

    Favorite trail is Prompton Dam. No comparison to anywhere else. I'll be heading back for winter rides soon it anyone wants to go.

    Rothrock at State College is another fantastic bet.

    My name is Jamie, from Bloomsburg, 32 years old, but I try not to act it. I ride a Specialized Hardrock Pro Disc. When it isn't too hot, I like to bring my German Shepherd, Indy along-not to brag, but people have often complimented that he has great trail manners! My buds and I mostly ride at Geisinger these days, but there are few other local places we go, like roaring creek. When I visit family near Doylestown, I try to go ride high rocks. I went to snowshoe for 3 days and diablo for one day this year-definitely going back to diablo a few times next year! I am shopping for a heckler for next year. Favorite beverages are microbrews or homebrew (I make my own when I have time!).

    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    Sorry no pictures yet

    Scott Priester, 37 years old, I live in the Point Breeze neighborhood of the City of Pittsburgh.

    I ride a Cannondale Rush and a Bianchi MUSS. Frick Park is in my back yard, one of the greatest things to happen to my life. The riding is great, never have to load up car for it. The bike culture here in Pittsburgh is fantastic.

    I love to travel with the bikes and stay at Bed and Breaksfasts along the way.

    Mike from Langhorne, PA. I ride a Trek 8000LT since 2001. My usual rides include Pennypack & Wissahickon in Philadelphia; Core Creek & Neshaminy in Langhorne; Mercer in NJ; Blue Marsh near Reading. I have been to Fruita (Kokopelli); Front Range trails in CO; and Moab three times. And I recently acquired a used road bike. Still getting used to the whole idea of it!

    What's up PA? My name's Nate. I'm born and raised in PA but currently living in the south of Spain. I check in here a lot when I'm away to see what's going on back home. When I'm in PA I'm in the Harrisburg/Hershey area and like to ride at Mt Gretna or Swatara St Park. I miss the PA singletrack. There is some good riding over here, but just like everything else, nothing is quite like home. My bikes: '96 Bianchi Martini Racing, '98 Merlin Tiaga Ti, 2000 Trek STP and '07 Orbea Oiz Team.

    I'm part of Hubbard Bike Club and a local trail promoter! I love "building" trails . My home trails are Hubbard, Merli, Prompton, Lackawanna SP, and soon the Moosic Mountain Conservancy that Hubbard and NEPMTBA have agreed to lay out an awesome trail system on.

    I ride DH at Plattekill and Mtn. Creek weekly during the summer, usually on Sundays. And we do trips to Snowshoe and Whiteface when we have the chance.

    Here's some pics of our trail "building"

    My name is Randy and I am 35. I ride Lackawanna State Park, Prompton Dam and last, but certainly not least, Merli-Sarnoski Park. I don't have a pic right now, but I do have some videos on youtube if you search for LSP and Merli. I never did get to prompton this year.

    My name is Casey
    I ride a Transition Bottlerocket, or Karpiel Armageddon primarily
    My favorite places to ride are: my trail (top secret), Ted's (D-town), Wissahickon (best singletrack), Valley Forge (at night), White Clay, Diablo, Platty
    Not too much into the pedaling thing. It's ok but I'd rather be going downhill or hitting some jumps/drops/bridges.

    me at Ted's last jump jam (hungover, sick, and hadn't showered in 2 days.)

    HallÚ PA riders! Callum here! Moved to the USA roughly 12 months ago from the UK. Live in Doylestown currently. I ride at Valley Green/Fairmount, highrocks/Stover, South Mt, Diablo. Dont get out as much as I like as I have no car/transport other than my wife! If anyone fancies giving a poor scotsman a life when they next go riding then let me know! Fuel money can be provided! Below is my current steed!

    Hi, I'm Mike from the Wilkes-Barre area. Favorite ride is 7 Tubs (where it all began for me) as well as ALL of Mountain Top (literally too much to list), also enjoyed Prompton, Merli, REALLY enjoyed Hubbard and Lackawanna State Park. Also, I have to say that I can't imagine there's anywhere else with so many GREAT people to ride with. Whether you're riding good, or riding lousy, the company of these people make any ride a great ride. Pics are of me at the Tubs:

    Hey Everyone!!

    I'm Ahmed from Pittsburgh, Pa. I was a basketball player throughout middle school and high school, but after my senior year I decided not to continue on to Division III ball. I am currently at the University of Pittsburgh as a Freshman. I love building bikes from scratch and finding smokin' deals by looking all over the country through the internet. So fun to make something your own.

    My Machines:

    *2004 Titus Racer X Black
    (mavic wheels, fox float 140 RLC, Juicy 7's, RP3 rear shock)

    *2007 Gary Fisher X-Caliber 29er
    (mavic rims, xt hubs, hayes el camino, Reba Race SL)
    (((1 by 9 drivetrain)))

    *2006 Yellow Felt F70
    (shimano 105 all, yellowed out with michelin speedium, and sella italia seat)


    I love to ride when I can. Very buisy with alot of other hoobies though. I would say that I love to build more than to ride, but once its summer time or spring, that changes very quickly. I'M A HUGE FAN OF RIDING WITH OTHER PEOPLE. FOR ME IT'S HARD TO RIDE ALONE.

    Thanks for reading!!!

    Long live the beautiful yet basic engineering of the bike!!!!

    Worked for/ with Cycle Board Sports off and on, met my wife there, got married live in Effort.

    We ride Glen Park, Camelback, Devilshole, Francis Slocum SP, South Mountain, Salisbury, Jordan Creek, Allamuchy (deer park) Jacobsburg and some others that arent named.

    I have a few bikes, right now my Bullit is getting the love, but my Reign, the P3, and my two old homegrowns are sitting there staring at me too.

    My wife (Keylimeride here) rides a Trance.

    A few pics...

    Hi

    name's Dusty
    hometown is Pottstown, about 1 hr east of Philly. Favorite place to ride is French Creek and nearby St Peter's and surrounding gamelands. Been MTB'ing for 20+ years, enjoying it more now than ever. I have two young kids (still on trikes) & one on the way, I am SO looking forward to their first Mt Bikes and many thereafter. Did a little racing throughout the State many years ago, just ride for fun and fitness now (and the love of it).

    great thread btw
    Lance who?

    Good thread; I'll keep it going.

    I'm Don and I live in Philly. My favorite local ride is the Wissahickon (pre-2001; the ongoing grooming of the park is ruining the terrain we all grew up riding on). I also ride at French Creek, Neshaminy, and points all across PA with my old college buddies who are all still into mountain biking.

    My ride is a 2008 EWR Bikes Original Woods Bike.
