    yeaa im definitely stoked on meeting up with you guys...im just a little hesitant because all i have up here is my 8 inch downhill bike and i dont want to be holding the crew back if there are some intense climbs. Do you guys think I could find some stuff suitable for my bike?

    Your all about our (CDH)Chinese Downhill Ride... 8 miles down with a few pedaling sections then a ride back up in a vehicle!

    Next Chinese downhill is right before our NEPMTBA meeting on Friday 3/28/08 at 4 pm with many more this summer including at our Mountain Bike weekend.

    There are a few more of us here getting Downhill bikes as we speak! Personally I'm looking... "Intense"

    Email: grmikuls@bloom.edu Gary has the info on the CDH

    Nice talkin with ya...
