    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.

    John Steinbeck fans might have heard of the "pastures of heaven", well here's a look at them today:

    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!
