    Hmmm...

    ....it shouldn't be too bad. The ride offers a few different options as far as length goes so you should be able to pace yourself with your drive home in mind:-) You can't leave before we have dinner at Casa Maya though!

    Ditto on the "I'm in."

    Even though we brought the gearies, I can see that this trail is 100% SS'able.

    Okey dokey

    .....9 am ready to ride from the middle control pull out.

    Heres the directions: Take highway 38 out of big bear towards redlands......you're going to drive a ways down the mountain until you come to the little town(mini mart and a restaurant) of Angeles Oaks on the right hand side. Once you reach angeles oaks make a U turn and drive back up highway 38 a few hundred yards to the pullout, on the same side of the road as the "town"

    The pullout is huge and really can't be missed. I am sure there will be a plethora of bikes and cars in the pullout, but if in doubt, there is a fireroad that leaves the pullout that is marked as middle control road. Hope that helps, Brian

    Many thanks. Did I hear that a forest service adventure pass is also needed?

    Yup...

    ....same pass that cleveland requires.

    Aahhhh, the black sequined hot pants.....I'm not sure they'd fit Andy, but he is more than welcome to try them on and see what he thinks.....I think they'd look smashing on him..

    Stay tuned!

    I'm in like Flynn

    Contemplating a few things though....

    If it comes in today, I will have a new Cross-Check frame to build up tonight. If some-one has a set of 700x44 Mutanos that I could borrow for the day, I could run fixed or free (haven't decided yet). Or I could save that descent into madness for a closer to home/shorter more controlled experiment and just ride the SStumpjumper.

    Hmmmm.....

    .....assuming that you get some dirty shakedown miles between today and sunday, I say go for it. I used to ride the SART on a cross bike all the time, and it is pretty fun. I would probably not recommend trying out your fixxed gear on it though!

    As far as tires go, I may have a set of those....I'll have to do a little looking.

    As for gearing on a crosser/29er for this trail....I'd go for 32-19 or something like that, but probably not much harder.

    Couple questions. We are considering driving up from San Diego. However, my legs are fried from an alpine metric century I did this morning on the road and because of this I would probably opt for my gearie tomorrow.

    A) Will it be a hammerfest?
    B) Would I be chastised for riding the gearie?

    There should be several gearies there. Come one come all. I don't think it will be much of a hammer fest since there will be so many riders and it's primarily ST. Although I could be wrong, but I doubt it. The weather looks to be perfect for tomorrow.

    I might be dragging along a few of the riders from our local club (Well, I told 'em about it, dunno if anyone's planning on showing up.) and they'll all be geared and are not a hammerhead group. They all ride well, just aren't racer types looking to hammer all the time.

    Hey, you're not one of the riders that joined us out at Gooseberry Mesa a couple years ago are you? There was a group of 3 or 4 women and a couple guys, some from San Diego I think, that Judy hooked up with somehow (online?) and invited along. The subject of MTBR came up at one point and I think a couple of riders in that group were members here. The name "Dirtcrab" seems to ring a bell. Could be confusing you with someone else though.

    Ok then, Bonnie, Andi and I will see ya'll there. YAY for gearies (as the SS pouts in the garage)!

    EDIT EDIT EDIT: Ok, as you can see from above I was planning on being there...

    This AM B & A flaked for understandable insomniatic and other health related issues. As much as I love SART, I'm not motivated to make a 5+ hour drive by myself today. I'm gonna have to miss this one. Hope you all have fun and we'll try to make it up for the next one. Someone please post some pics!
