    Yeah, it really makes rolling over all the rocks alot easier, and the traction is so much better.

    That's called the St. Andrew's race course, it's about 7 miles, but thats not where we rode. We rode the Perimeter Trail that is at the University of the South, just down the street from St. Andrews. The trail is pretty sweet, it's about 20 miles around the loop, there are a couple of short sections off limits to bikes but no problem to bypass on the fire roads. Alot of smooth up and down single track on one side, and the other side is quite technical with alot of rocks, bluff exposures etc. A very fun trail.

    From Birmingham. I've got an Evil Imperial with a On One 29er on the way (I'm pretty excited about that). I'm always ready for a ride at Oak Mtn. Cleve, I'd love to see that Wily sometime as well.

    The Wily is currently getting "repaired". I just got an Inbred 29er to ride while I'm waiting. I'm sure you'll like yours...it's a sweet ride regardless of cost. Here is a pic of the Wily:

    Representing Auburn, AL... I guess. I was born and raised in South AL, but have lived in FL and Seattle for a few years. Now back in Auburn for the last 3 years.

    I just got back into biking after a 3 year hiatus. I started back in 1990. I have yet ride the bike I just bought since I received it yesterday....
    2001 Intense Tracer - all XTR, Marzocchi, Hayes Hydraulics, Paul/Sun wheelset

    So since the weather will be nice, i hope to ride the Swayback Trail on Saturday. I've never ridden this Trail because I left Alabama in late 97 and the Swayback was just talk at that point. Who's with me?

    I've been in Bama for one year now and unfortunately haven't been out to ride very often. I've checked out Bartram and part of the Talladega Nat Forest off of Bull Gap road. Oak Mt. is in the near future...I've heard nothing but great things about it. I ride a Giant NRS3. (Don't have any pics...sorry!).

    I felt a little bad about doing that race...they made me race sport because I couldn't buy a one day license for expert. Isn't it nice how Norba promotes sandbagging?

    Hello from Hoover

    Hey all,

    I live in Hoover and do most of my riding at fairly-secret, semi-legal stash of tight twisty New England style single track. I'll hit Oak Mt every now and then, but it's a little too polished for my tastes. If anyone's interested in getting together for some low-speed night rides, please give a shout.

    Cheers,

    -Andrew T

    Andrew,
    I will be in B'ham area on March 1 or 2 to visit my son's family and ride Oak Mountain or surrounding trails. My son lives in Helena. Anyone else available around that time, let me know about a ride.
