    San Diego contribution. Hollenbeck Canyon singletrack! Dry & hot as hell in the summer, perfect temp this time of the year. Very rarely see another rider.

    Bonneville Shoreline Trail above Draper, UT
    This sign was next to the trail


    And this picture was zip tied to the bridge the cougar is standing on. The bridge is part of the trail.

    Cool pics again. Would like to see the views w/out the clouds.

    The first thing that came to mind was the sound those brake pads were making in those conditions. What is the grey bike?

    thanks!
    w/out the clouds it looks like this.
    the brakes made no sound at all. if anything you could hear the pads sanding down the rims, after considerable time pulling the lever

    edit: the grey bike is a kästle.

    Hey, it's been cold lately! Saw a sheet of ice on a puddle just the other morning!

    That mountain top in the pic does actually get a dusting of snow on it once or twice a year.

    Sorry it's not really a trail photo and more of a a "view while riding" photo.

    It at Dryer Park in Victor, NY. it's not that steep, but as you go around the tree it drops about 3-4 feet with alot of very gnarly roots. Eats my 26er and my old ass every time.

    How many folks in this thread are living in Washington State? Seems like a ton based on the number of postings that are WA based. I am out in the Duvall/Carnation area outside of Seattle and wondered if anyone else would be interested in pulling together a ride sometime in the spring/early summer. Hope everyone is having a good day.

    nah...the people shouting at me.

    been out again.
    first it sucked, then it got pretty tricky if not slightly dangerous, then it sucked again, just before becoming dangerous again and finally it sucked big time. stupid cross-country skiers messed up the trail...

    A little snow ride for me on the TET Hot, not as dangerous as RigidFTW's, but still fun. As a recent transplant from AZ, riding in the snow is a new experience.

    There's quite a bit of people in the Seattle/Tacoma area. I hope Aemmer can organize a local ride for y'all! If/when he does, we'll sticky a thread.

    Avocet FastGrips on a Ham?

    The Knobby Tire Police will be by in a few hours to impound your bike.

    Doing a 77 mile "mixed terrain ride" with about 60 of it on the road so thought I'd test out the Ham to see how it'd work. Last time I used a 29er with drop bars and 2.1's (worn Nanoraptors). I think a cross bike with a triple would be ideal. The ride's got a 4,800' climb (in the dirt) in the middle of the ride.

    Only one bottle mount on the Racer. Might need to mount up a B-52 (?) cage.

    Mixed terrain slicks on a Ham are not to be confused with "don't want to get my Klein dirty" slicks on a Klein. Huge difference.

    You're suppose to carry the knobbies in a backpack and swap them at each photo opportunity. I do it all the time.

    ha! Of course!

    The downside to using the Ham on the aforementioned ride is the WTB bars don't really lend themselves to riding on the hoods or on the tops of the bars. Not to mention, it's pretty upright on the road. Might have to go to a cross bike... :/

    I forgot and was again surprised at how great this bike felt on the singletrack. I didn't hang it up in its usual spot - it's going back out for more.

    Now we're talkin! Such a proper, timeless looking mountain bike. Glad to see it back in rotation.

    I'm loving all these shots of California! Oregon is beautiful in it's own right, but there's a pastoral quality that is really unique to your region. The bikes are nice as well!

    Thanks y'all! It's technically a 1987. However, the specs for the 1988 Team are more applicable which is where the Browning comes in (not on mine). I bought it very recently and most of it appears stock. All XT with Specialized's GX26 rims. The rims were pretty beat and the previous dude ran it with the hubs too loose (pedals too). I swapped in some practically brand new Araya RM20s with some high flange Suzue hubs. I should get some better pics up soon.

    I can't seem to find an accurate number of frames that Dave Tesch produced for Specialized but there weren't that many. Coincidentally, I have and used to race on a Specialized Team Allez that Tesch made, same paint job. Absolutely amazing bikes.

    Yeah if only I was as fast as I used to be...
    Those bits of trails, there are few more techy bits and drops ahead, were part of the trails that we "weren't supposed to ride" 20 years ago, only moved back to the area a few months ago, now they are just part of the trail network.

    After 30" of snow in the past week and a half made my home trails too muddy to ride, I had to go off in search of dry trails. Search successful.

    Palos Hills (15 miles SW of Chicago IL) summer of '99. You can't really tell from the photos, but this trail network used to be among the best in the country, a hidden gem in the midwest. I haven't ridden there in 10 years so I'm not sure what it's like now, but we got our use out of the 40 or so miles of trails there in the 90's.

    Me on my '93 Bontrager (that I still have), the backpack was for my camera gear, not sure why I didn't take it off for the photo. Oh to be that skinny again...


    My friend Graham on his '96 Bontrager, he was my main off road riding partner back in the day (he's now an emergency room doctor in Eugene OR).


    Heather, another good friend who I rode with a ton back then.


    Me again, negotiating some roots on a fairly steep downhill.

    Alki to Lincoln Park with my wife.

    Because some times you just need to do a no helmet, no gloves, stop for lunch type of ride. Good times:

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

    Yep. Looks like a killer stretch of bike path there.

    I also like the no helmet, no lycra, lazy rides in the mountains.

    My wife is more athletic than I will ever be, but in the several years together, she has been on exactly one dirt trail ride. That was one too many. She decided right away that trails without gravel or pavement were for hiking, which is ok and we do quite often.

    Sugarloaf Mountain, CO

    Steep and loose,

    No problem for an old bike like this. Probably the best technical climbing bike I've been on, with the front end going exactly where you want even when the wheel is barely touching the ground.

    no, but what are the chances?? I rode a bike I haven't ridden in years and planned on snapping a couple pics. Before I could post pics someone dredges up that 4 year old thread!

    Campy stuff is solid, over-built, heavy, pretty, and nicely made, but the shifting is a little less than refined. I had to race with this stuff in 91 and I hated it then.

    I got an old craigslist find up and running this week. It had been hanging in my garage with a stuck seat post and some missing parts for a couple of years. While not a show piece, its a mostly period correct rider that is a lot of fun. It came from a shop at which I worked back in the late 80's and I may have even sold it when it was brand new.

    Original Paint

    The paint is original. Of all the vintage bikes I've ridden, this is the one that gets the most
    comments on the trail. At least one person, sometimes several will say, "Sweet ride." Yesterday
    it was three separate college women and an 8 year old kid, all of whom were born after this bike
    was built. Regardless, it really is amazing how well this bike handles.
