    Who's riding their turners?

    I am...





    From grandfather mountain district of Pisgah National Forest in western North Carolina. Just thought I'd throw some more shots up for those of you with real winters.

    Just started a bigger bike commute to a different part of the city. Hope to drop some pounds by the end of the month. I'm not officially riding more via commute than my Turner on weekends.

    Yeah, seriously! Is that typical weather for Western NC in January? I thought snow wouldn't stick on the ground all Winter long but that temperatures would still be close to freezing in the mountains.

    I just got back from to two feet of snow in the back yard from ten days of 70F in Arizona and I am bumming already ... time to apply some wax on those skis again.

    sweet, butter gap is a longtime classic. yee haw.

    love pisgah trail riding. and dearly miss it!!!

    Hawaii doesnt come close to stacking up IMO...just a bunch of jumps and berms and people that want to shuttle everything b/c they are too lazy to pedal

    We've had spring like conditions in the SF Bay Area the last several weeks. Here's a montage from last week:

    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    We got a random 50 degree day on sunday, hence the shorts and t-shirt.

    Saturday, however, was a brutally cold death march through frozen creeks in Wilsons.

    Now its snowing.

    Moral of the story: we have weird weather, but we'll take the ride days whenever possible.

    TP - not sure that we'll get over that way this trip since we are staying south of Asheville but maybe later in the year for sure. I got something I need to test on some of those extended DH's.

    Hey TP, nice shots, need more of these from you again,
    We shuttled Pisgah once back when...think you were living in Greenville then? Camped in Boone last fall, couldn't bring bike though. Lot's of folks pedaling in and out of the campground
    I'm coming up to camp and ride this next time, next month I suppose. I'll holler at ya for a tour.

    Ill be trying for the first time Saturday, messing around in my yard indicates vast improvments in bottom out resistance and lower overall air pressure for the same sag.
