    Out. Again. Kiddos spring break timed perfectly with the only time available for a family getaway f'd me. Two times in a row. Same story as last year, Tahoe bound. Lame but cool I guess. Meanwhile the P22 sits patiently.

    They have in the past run two classes, "friction/non-indexed" so, up to about 85/86 and the second class up to about 93/94. My goal is to have the bikes be as period correct as possible, although I'm not as detail oriented as some of the guys are, and running vintage tires is becoming less viable as the years go by. If you show up with anything but the earliest suspension, expect to be heckeled.

    The point of the whole thing is to have fun though, so bring what you got and come out for some riding and hanging out and looking at everybody elses old bikes.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    cool stuff, it would be great to see all them bikes.

    is it possible to race multiple races like in BMX..or do you pick one and have fun with it.
    I'd like to run an old bike, but also something that's a bit more racy for the 93/94 option..I do have one or two that could work for the 85/86 class though....I was hopeing that tires were optional. I do have a bunch of old tires, but even the best ones are fairly dry or rotted.

    There are multiple events: cross country, short track, downhill, and trials. You could run a different bike in each event, however, the events are run simultaneously (except for the short track) so it would be difficult to run multiple classes - although there might be a way to complete the vintage class before the expert or pro class went off (for the cross country race). All of the vintage racers go at the same time, so there's no way to run multiple vintage classes.

    The Keyesville Classic is the longest running MTB stage race in the USA. Just like the good old days, you run Short track, XC, and downhill. If you are doing the stage race they have in the past weighed your bike before every race to confirm no changes were done. That said, We are there to have fun and I don't think you will have too many complaints from fellow vintage racers if you use your 93 GT RTS Team for the downhill and your series 3 Breezer for the XC. In fact unless you are flying in, I reccomend you bring at least three vintage bikes. You can sign up for each race seperately and do the XC with the single speeders short track on your vintage Murray, and finish the downhill on your Supermondodeluxe that said, the single speeders are all alcoholics and the downhillers are well.... nevermind. If you want to be cool, do all three stages in the vintage class. For actual riding last year, I changed out my tires (didn't trust my 30+ year old snakebellies) and my pedals (slave to the clipless pedals) when nobody was looking and then changed them back after the rides. And since this is a Keyesville thread, of course it needs pictures (again):





    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2 or 3. Cunningham Racer.

    Tim, did you register me too Thanks for the encouragement!
    What class does a 89 fit in, can I switch my shifters to friction and go with the mid 80's bikes?

    You're in the 86+ class with the indexers buddy. The easiest way to gauge what class you're in...is if you have M730/M732/M735 XT you're in the 'newer' class. If you have M700 Deerhead, you're in the older friction class.

    (and not to derail this thread, but in addition to making it to a k'ville, you owe us a vintage group ride right? )

    So Eric, you stated you brought a bike to show. Is there an actual event where you show your bike, or is it just to your buddies?

    They need to replace Short Track with an Uphill event to make it like the old days.

    Exactly.

    Throw in some trials, and a log pull in to really round it out.

    In years past, Veloculture, when he lived in SD, would display them. We don't really do that much anymore but frankly, we're a bunch of bike nerds and it's been fun to see everybody's bikes.

    VADER! I love my yearly visit with you. <3 One of the few drinking buddies I have in the forum.

    There was talk of having an uphill race last year or the year before, but I don't think they got enough interest from the racers.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    It depends on the uphill. If it's racing up the hill that goes to the start of the downhill, I'd rather watch.

    Unless you won, of course.

    There is no organized event, but in reality you are surrounded by a bunch of vintage bike fiends who will be tearing your build apart in their head making mental notes of where you used Jaguar cable housing instead of the original 6mm housing that your bike came with. People who geek out about how minty fresh your Deerhead rear deraileur is and can tell the difference between a TimberComp and a TeamComp from 100 feet away. People who really appreciate all the work put into your vintage bike project.

    It would be fun to show the bikes for a few hours Saturday afternoon and set up a beauty contest with a few different catagories to be voted on. Say one category for the general population and another as the judges poll that consisted of only people signed up to race vintage. The non vintage people get a kick out of seeing our old bikes, mostly when we are racing the downhill course.
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2 or 3. Cunningham Racer.

    Riding the Snake Pit (see below) on a fully rigid bike, especially with drop bars, always gets a big cheer. I've never tried to ride it (mostly because I'm lazy and never do any practice runs to figure out the line) but you can hear the cheers from the finish line, even louder if you crash.

    After seeing the Repack video that's probably the safe choice.

    YEAH...thats what im talking about..All 3 events...Thanks for all the info and sweet pics.
    I'd prob. have to fly in though, but local (kinda) friends may be able to fix me up with additional rides if needed...although I sure dont have an old bike to compare to some of the ones folks here have, I do have some that can fit the entry criteria.

    Well, I'll give you sh!t because...thats what I do. But we'll all just be stoked for the pleasure of your company and ukulele. I'm assuming same spot as last year, though I wouldn't be totally opposed to something more off the beaten path of that main entrance.

    I'd prob. have to fly in though, but local (kinda) friends may be able to fix me up with additional rides if needed...although I sure dont have an old bike to compare to some of the ones folks here have, I do have some that can fit the entry criteria.
    For maximum enjoyment, definitely all three events. When it gets down to it, its not about having a high end vintage bike...its about 'racing' an old bike vs other old bikes for fun.

    Nah, no more so than a lot of you guys (yourself included). I could do a build thread for a few bikes I've finished I suppose. HT junction is ovalized Excell tubing and brazed, lugs (or faux lugs?) elsewhere.

    Nice thought, but probably will bring either the 94 Adroit or 89 Manitou. Both of those bike are a better fit and more fun to ride.

    Steve W, leave your daughter at home. Tim A and Shawn W are both scumbags and I'm sure it's rubbed off on their sons.


    Actually, more kids coming with is great. We need these guys to carry the torch. This is always such a fun event, the more dogs and family that show up, it could really grow even more.
    At some point, I hope I can get my wife and daughter to come down too.

    Bring Ethan! It's only a problem when they want to ride your favorite bike. When I asked Hank to come he said "sure if I can ride the Pott's". I guess I will let him.

    Doubt any of these three would enjoy the trip or an extended run

    Depends on what I can finish before March.

    Did I say I seek a Mountain Goat bar stem to finish a project.

    According to FaceBook the date for the 2014 Keyesville Classic has changed to March 29th and 30th. Hope no one has purchased plane tickets yet.

    Hmmm ... maybe I'll bring a Trek instead.

    Not nearly as cool, rare or historically important as that one though.

    Bumping this back up. I was considering the Phoenix SE, but decided I really didn't want to trust FedEx (or anyone else) with $1500 worth of brakes so I think I'm going to bring my blue Ritchey. Just have to ride it a few times before hand to make sure it actually works, so far it's only been around the parking lot.

    2014 Keyesville Swap Meet!

    Its starting to look and sound like we're gonna have a killer turn out this year. In the past we've done a mini-impromptu vintage mtb swap...maybe this is a good year to do that again?

    I've already got a few things to deliver and a few things coming for me, might as well go with it. I'll bring a bunch of parts and such for sale or trade. Everyone else should do the same if they want/can.


    For example, last year I scored what was in the cardboard box.

    The swap in 2012 worked out great for me, got rid of a ton of stuff and paid for my gas (550 miles at 18mpg and $5 a gallon). Since I'm flying in this time I won't be able to bring a lot, but I'll leave room in my suitcase for stuff to bring home.
