    Picture Thread 2010

    Since the Random Pic Thread hit 101 post, I thought I'd start a new one! for 2010.

    So, got out on a solo run Sunday am. Winter time in Nor Cal when it's not raining means fog... and for Sunday, LOTS of it..

    From the Freeway start(pic1), to the trail head(pic 2) to the beach shots(Pic 3), fog, fog, fog, fog everywhere! This what the million dollar homes of "Los Lagos" get to see! (Pic 4)

    Only the Granite seemed to be at home. (Pic 5) and it made it look like a trail to nowhere! (pic 6).

    I took some of the trail home with me..(Pic 7) ....Pic 8 is just to get some Ventana content.

    OLE!

    Aaron, that just looks cold, damp and foggy!!!! :-O

    Still in the mid 70's and sunny here in SoCal. Maybe rain by mid week? The in-laws up north of SAC said it was nasty foggy up your way.

    Well, 2010 here we are!

    4life- you are scarily accurate there. I ran into only one other person riding on Sunday.

    However that probably had more to do with them showing up later to do the trailwork and not riding that morning.

    Here's how my Sunday ride looked like..... I had not ridden in weeks and to top it off I decided to take the Terremoto out...as you can imagine I was dead tired after almost 3 hours in the snow

    Here are a few racey pics of my Ventana El Commandante in action.

    Raced this weekend in the Folsom Rodeo Cross event and entered Open Single Speed division. This is not your average cyclocross type course and while there are barriers and stair run ups and long flat grass sections, there is also a lot of singletrack and as a result, the field is roughly split 60% cross bikes and 40% on mountain bikes (or something close to that maybe).

    I had a rough start to my race as I dropped a chain on the first lap causing me to lose over a minute getting it back on, but luckily, an hour long race gave me plenty of time to catch back up and take 1st out of 8 in my class

    Peectures:

    Dropped chain first lap, cursing loudly:


    chain back on and rolling:


    giving it 110% to catch back up:

    Wait a minute....singlespeeder dropping their chain? How'd that happen anyway? I thought the whole idea of singlespeeding was less problems?

    haha...no worries. A single speeder that drops his chain deserves to get his balls busted

    I think what happened is that the EBB slipped a little. Just that morning before the race, I took my 34T sprocket off and threw on a 36T and I was kinda hasty in tightening everything back up (I think). I rode over to the race from my house in the morning and things were fine. In my warmup laps, everything was fine. And for the first lap, when we were all bunched up together and I wasn't really racing and accelerating at 100% yet, it was fine.

    But at the very end of the first lap, I stomped on the gas to make a pass and get moving, and POP!!!!. I thought I blew up my chain when I heard it, it was such a loud noise, but then I looked down and the chain was off both the sprocket and the rear cog. And when I got it back on the chain was way more loose than when I set it up in the morning. So I'm guessing EBB slipped a little when I torqued on it super hard. Luckily whatever position it ended up in was good enough to hold for the rest of the race and allow me to finish and come back.

    Great looking El Rey! That XX looks amazing. Got a look at it at the Interbike this past summer. I'll bet that rig puts a smile on your face! :-)

    random, non action bike pron


    Freshly built berm on a new trail...first and only tires you see on there are the V's. That is a 6' gap to transition 10 meters down the trail.

    Some recent post-fire shots, out with the Chamuco.

    BTW, I'd struggled with the Chamuco build for a while--even tried to sell it with a 150mm Z1 and Romic coil. The bike never really felt agile with a bigger, heavier fork. So, no one bought it (luckily), and the frame ended up sitting around for a year. Then I took a look at my Salty, which had grown overforked anyway with a 140mm Vanilla (guess I'd been trying to turn it into a Ciclůn) and had a moment of inspiration: why not swap out the parts from the Salty to the Chamuco? Turns out, built up AM with the Vanilla and a Float shock, the Chamuco sprang to life. Still plenty slack, low bb, stiff (installed thru-axle main pivot and 10mm thru-bolt hub), great suspension, and light. This setup just smokes.

    Santa Monica Mountains (Los Angeles) 2.21.10

    Last weekend we were able to get one good ride in, the Backbone trail into Will Rodgers State Park. After rain early in the week, things dried out on Saturday giving us a chance to get in the 20 mile loop on Sunday. I'm not often the one in my photographs, as I'm usually the one taking them. Anyway, my goofy mug aboard the Terremoto, happy to be out on the trail. (a little artistic license with the image too.).

    I put this one in the seemingly dead action thread. Riding in digging clothes because we were cutting the trail...had to size this one up for a while. It is about 30' downhill from the top ladder and is much bigger...4+ at the end of the ladder...angled slightly up and lands you 15-20' out on the transition. That is most likely as big as I have gone...yet!

    Thanks Zero. Often I ride with my Canon G10 (and occasionally an external Canon Speedlite too), and while it is a great camera, it does suffer from the shutter lag that many of the P&S type cameras do. For my solo ride I crammed my older DSLR body (Canon 20D), and I do mean crammed, into my CamalBak. Took that, one lens, mini tripod and my wireless remote. Having only the built in flash of the 20D, I wished I had a bigger / more powerful flash. Hard to balance the bright sun of a cloudless day with that little twinky built in flash.

    Looking for a more photo specific hydration pack for photo rides. Looking at these guys: Clik Elite Have seen there stuff in reviews and at the PMA show here in Los Angeles last month. Great quality stuff. They are located in St. George, UT... Hummmm... maybe an excuse for a Utah trip. Maybe if I'm really nice, I'll get one for my birthday this weekend!

    Yeah, I considered the G10 when my G9 was lifted. I went with the LX3 instead...first time to stray from Canon, but I don't regret it one bit. Still chuggin up that learnin' curve and aspire to one day have a dSLR.

    I do think a speedlight needs to be my next piece of equipment though...built-in flash is horrible for almost every situation! And I am learning to deal with the direct sun as well, as that is about what we get here in TX>

    You've got some great shots, the ones I've seen anyway. A true DSLR is really almost impossible to beat. I don't have any hands on time with the LX3, but the reviews (dpreview.com is a good one, I'm sure you've surfed there) are very impressive, so I can't say. But the number one thing, for me that a DSLR has, is the instant shutter release and the high speed continuous drive mode(s). And yes, an external, high guide number flash is a necessity for outdoor photography. Many people think, hey the sun is out, I don't need my flash!?!?, but you can get a better shot on a cloudy dark day without flash than you can on a sunny one!

    Check out this guys stuff, http://www.flickr.com/photos/keithpyt/ He has great technique, and there is some definite post processing going on, but number one is his use of (and often more than one) high power strobe. Stuff that he does he can not "ride in" with, but must hike in. The lighting equipment is just to big / heavy. But you can do some amazing things with one or two external flashes.

    Yeah, thanks man!
    Some great points there on how the dSLR is better for this type of shooting - I hadn't considered the instant shutter release aspect before, and of course, the continuous drive is of utmost importance (one of the reasons I went LX3 over the G10 is that it was a bit faster).
    Thanks for the link, I'll have to check it out.

    El Salt-

    Wrap your thumbs underneath your bars before you kill yourself. I've never seen anyone ride like that unless climbing.

    Huh, never realized that. I mean, I guess maybe that technique isn't "correct"? In 25yrs of riding, I've only once had a wreck because of loosing grip on the bar, but I will be aware of my position going forward. At least experiment with hand position. (Honestly, thank you.)

    yeah..it seems like your adapter is pretty thick...

    perhaps you could try thinner adapters like the DT Swiss, Magura or Shimano?

    Made it into MTB Action, but...

    Hey! We are magazine stars! You can find me, on my Terremoto, and Lori my wife on her Knolly, in the May edition of "Mountain Bike Action" on page 36! The pics are from our ride on the JEM Trail outside of Hurricane, Utah. Too bad they got our last name and city wrong.

    Thanks Man.
    The build is:
    -2008 La Bruja Frame .
    -Fox dhx coil shock w/500# spring(I might be looking at a 550# spring).
    - RS Totem coil Fork.
    -Thompson stem 70mm no rise.
    -Sunline V1 handlebars 30" wide.
    -ODI Ruffian grips.
    -Gravity dropper.
    -WTB saddle.
    -Truvativ Hammerschmidt 24-34 gears set up.
    -Avid Code Breaks 8" front disc,7" rear disc
    -Hope ProII hubs laced to Mavic 819 ust rims(823s are in the works!)
    -Maxxis Minions DHF 2.5 front and back Tires.
    -Sram X-9 shifters
    -Sram X-9 RD low cage.
    Total build so far around 39lbs. she's a heavy baby but pedals good as long as I can keep on turning them crank arms.

    The trails around here are amazing! If you ever make it out this way, I'm sure you won't be dissaponted,just make sure is in the summer time so you can sample all higher elevation goodies stuff like this! or some buff single track is all out here

    This pictures are from a few rides from last year.peace

    I bought a Bastardo a few weeks ago, frame fork and headset. Some parts from my old bike, some new stuff, and it was ready to roll! I'm still dialing in fit and suspension settings, but so far it's pretty sweet!

    Happy delivery:

    Duplicate...Image Test.

    Edit: Success! But only 800pix wide

    Edit II: Try No. 2

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/31268906@N08/4726145539/" title="Ventana Bruja Gen 1.75 by CiclistaGonzo, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1256/4726145539_91b5ede798.jpg" width="500" height="342" alt="Ventana Bruja Gen 1.75" /></a>
    Ok, Flicker is joke too 500pix wide?

    Let's give ole MTBR a try.

    Edit: Well it works, it's wider and easier to see but compression kills the details. Oh well.

    Sorry El Salt, I made a duplicate post, nothing to do with you. Was trying to link to photo instead of using the highly compressed versions from MTBR, not very successful for some reason.

    Wanted to give Ventana (Sherwood and Teresa) a shout-out here!

    Thank you for making some kick-ass fast (and fun) hardtails. This season I raced a Ventana El Commandante to the overall series championship at the Prairie City Mountain Bike Race Series in the Single Speed Expert Class. My El Comm proved to be reliable and fast throughout the season, and when I did have an issue with the EBB in the middle of the season, the gang at Ventana helped me right out and was able to keep me racing.

    Also, a big shout out to Mad Cat Bikes in Sacramento who were my main mechanics for the season and kept everything together as well. 12 weekly races over 3 months puts a lot of abuse on a bike.

    Ole Ventana!

    A Ventanaphile among Homers. From this past week, invited to play with Aqua and others down in San Diego. Once again proving that it is not the bike, but the rider Ė I was fully schooled. Thread HERE.

    Here is a pic or two from my season on my Padrino. It propelled me to few good finishes and helped nurse my to the finish in a few others.

    Past weekend tripto the Cali North Coast(Redwoods!)

    So, yeah, title pretty much sums it all up. Went to the north coast of California this past weekend to escape the heat and road our mountain bikes on SINGLETRACK in an OLD GROWTH REDWOOD FOREST. Pretty dnag impressive to be a tiny little spec scurrying around on the forest floor at the feet of those giant trees. And to boot, we found a waterfall to refresh ourselves in, and to give our bikes a cleaning as well.
    Sorry not heavy on the riding shots, but pretty good shots nontheless, me thinks at least.

    Sandia Shuttle on Saturday:














    you know you're in trouble when the shuttle driver wears his helmet for the way up!

    This first one is my favorite.

    As for that driver...having witnessed a high-center on a stump, I'd be sure to wear my helmet in his truck too!

    Sorry dood, it was one of those rides where you just rail the whole thing and only stop to regroup. We were also in and out of the rain and didn't want to waste time session-ing. Although there were a couple places I would have liked to take my time through and really figure out. The last trip up to get the vehicles we could barely see the road the it was raining so hard. Monsoon is in it's prime for central NM.

    Damn rain also kept us from hitting Paj. But I would rather miss a day riding for rain than to miss the season because of fire.

    edit:

    forgot to ask you, Wharyouridingpiks?

    fvcker.

    Of course, I only have one of me from the baby jumps at Paj, I was hoping to go back and hit the largest ladder in the practice area after lunch, but that was Sunday and the rain caught us in the lot. Alll the more reason to get back up there! Bummer, as there are bigger features I hit here in ATX...

    I only got a few pics from the trip, unfortunately...just like you, too much/too fast to stop!

    Oohhhhhh....interesting.

    Seeing as how our group's Epic (fail?) trip is falling apart, this might be an option.

    Hmmm...damnit, my company is paying for me to attend a class all day that Friday. I'll look to see where else it is offered, otherwise, I am not so sure of my ability to do 11hrs drive/4sleep/ and ride...but I might be underestimating myself.

    If you're bringing Tequila, I'm sure there'll be be a few Ventana riders that will accompany you.

    You thinking of coming down for the Ullrfest on Sept 25th?
