    2013 Keyesville Afterglow Thread!

    Welcome to the afterglow.

    There were chills and spills, broken parts and drawn blood, bad weather before good, and whole pizzas demolished!

    I guess the question is, did anyone get any pics?


    Ah, right. This one is a nice start:




    Keyesville, CA

    A lot of segregation going on.. why can't the branded bikes make friends w/ others? Kleins have to stay w/ Kleins and FC w/ FC, Ritcheys w/ Ritcheys.. "Let the Sunshine in!" Whose idea was this.. Rumpfy? I always he had a prussian military mind.

    If I rounded up my old team you wouldn't need the acid!

    Well, YOU would need the acid - after seeing a bunch of now old, former racers in the buff

    Had another fantastic year! (6th for me!) It was colder than hell, but perfect on XC day. Sure missed all those who couldn't make it- Upchuck, Anomie, girlonbike, Laffeau, Doublecentury, veloculture, KB11. Hope you all can make it next year!

    Vader, I missed you. Did you have enough beer this year?

    Wow. Just, wow! Awesome stuff. Looks like a great vibe. Good to see the retro guys hitting up that chute while the modern newfangled bikes with suspension were being carried down! Great scenery, great bikes and nice pics, thanks for sharing!

    Now, if you guys can start a fund raiser to get me over there from Australia for next year, that would be great. Thanks in advance.

    I had a great time again this year. Decent but cold weather, a good group of vintage bike nuts, and a bunch of really nice old bikes.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Ha, somebody showed me a pic of Erics bike with the blown out tire yesterday at the Reseda ride. I was a little worried somebody could have been hurt. Glad to see only the parts suffered.

    I love how Aemmer and his son have a big s%#t-eating grin on their face in every picture that they are featured in

    er except for the one where he is showing of his sheared off seat post

    diametrically opposed to Rumpfy's look of dejection after his rear wheel burped it's tube out.

    So much bike carnage this year!

    Great photos everyone...really gives one a sense of the vibe during the event.

    Props to Ameybrook for sporting those yo eddy gloves. Kudos to all the guys and gals that rode the snakepit. Balls! I don't think the pictures convey just how narrow and steep it is and the nervousness of being stared and hooted at by over 100 pairs of eyes. I respect the hell out of you guys for doing it.

    That's a nice Ventana.

    That place looks like some amazing trails. I wish I lived closer to it.
    The bikes are nice looking too.
    Is the snake pit scary because of the wall to your left, or is it just really steep and rocky?

    Killer photos and as expected sounds like a great time had by all.

    While Lake Tahoe was a great getaway, the P22 and I seriously missed Keyesville.

    See ya'll next year for sure.

    And too bad that C-26 is so freakishly big. Might have followed me home if it was built for normal size folk.

    Lovin all the vintage bikes. Nice, gang - still crying about missing it.

    I have a feeling everyone who rides a 20" has already pme'd him to imply interest. That bike is awesome. And well proportioned!

    Hey Tim, your home. Good for you taking your son. It was cool seeing you two together...in pics that is. What a good Dad! You do get the award for the most photographed rider. I think there were some 'man crushes' going on there at Keyesville

    You mean there are more of you? How do you breathe at that altitude?

    Sorry, just had another round of "Dad, why did you have to be so short?" from my 12 year old daughter. I tell her that's why I married her mother - because she is taller!

    Yeah there can't be too many 20" C-26s. In fact, I wonder if that's the only one.

    Looking forward to more pictures of it.

    I was really wanting to rip all the knobs off of it before anything else. The back side of the ST course was pretty off cambered preceded by a little hip into an off cambered corner. That side load was just enough I guess. The white was literally cracking and chipping off the tire. I'm glad Hollister was there to witness. I think.

    C-26 is big, but not totally out there.

    Tim and his son are f'ing awesome to hang out with. Two positive individuals.

    Two that I know of (including mine)...possibly more, but ya never know. I'd be more stoked if it was a 17.5/18". Full Flickr photoshoot is out there.

    Hey Tim! Glad the Northwest Chapter made it home ok, I was a little worried by the stories I heard from Datawhacker about your trip down! Thanks for your great attitude in spite of breaking down in EVERY event. And much respect for being a great example as a Dad.

    I love the northwestern cowboy carrying his dead old horse across the line, with his sidekick right behind.

    Great pics H! Glad you made the trip. Fun drive home (lane passing on 46 anyway) and great the dogs had the chance to play this weekend.
    Fun stuff. I don't know why I didn't get a shot of the two of them wrestling around. :|

    The pinch flats on the XC:

    First of all, I want to pass blame onto H for this.

    After coming down from Pear Harbor, I was crossing the road to head uphill towards the last section of the race. I spot H up ahead with his camera. Of course I know he has some jump scouted out to get a cool picture of us when we ride by. Cresting the hill I knock it up to full throttle anticipating some sweet quiet time. As I get closer, riding at full throttle, I pick out the best thing to launch off of expecting to make the cover of Vintage Bike Monthly! Unfortunately I could tell right away there wasn't much to get air off of and the landing was going to be nothing more than a nasty little rock garden. I got as much air as I could but knew before I even hit the ground it was going to be pinch flat city.

    Sure enough not only did I manage to pinch the rear tire but the front tire hit a rock head on hard enough that it blew also. As I tell this story, mind you I am the pinch flat King and rest assured both of my tires had over 40 PSI. I managed to ride another 5 feet while H was bursting out in laughter at the results of my efforts.....

    At least he got the picture of the flat tires. Thats what I get for hamming it up for the camera. Next thing I knew, Ameybrook, Rumpfy and all the others were passing me for the win!



    What a great weekend!

    That was an awesome story - I was living it as you were telling it. If Hollister had taken video instead of stills, it might have replaced the ski guy in the "Agony of defeat" from Wide World of Sports!

    More Yeti:

    Aren't these stems supposed to be hard to find?



    A true "Classic Mountain bike". This is what it is all about. No doubt somewhere there is a proper time and place for Hardrocks and Prarie Breakers. Start there, but if you are looking for something cool, set your goals on the likes of this:

    And just to prove that I can mix brands. Bike Rack:



    Thats it for Friday pics... I will try to get into Saturdays soon.
