    Jacquie has been trying to make it to a ride a week with our group. She hasn't ridden the trails I usually ride during my evening rides, so it's fun to get to show a seasoned veteran something new. Plus, I've been helping out with little odds and ends around their place, and I have to say, I'd be totally overwhelmed if I were in her shoes. Getting out, even for these little evening rides, I think, brings a little slice of normalcy back to her day to day.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled program. Did you know that Otis Guys basically grow on trees here in Marin?

    Lee,

    That's fantastic and good work/fun all around, the powers of getting out in general 2 feet or 2 wheels (gotta give love to hikers too). Eric is farther than I am, but I'll try to make this Wednesday evening ride from your shop, are you doing one this week? Even though Berkeley is only 12+ miles away traffic can make it a hundred. I'm coming off surgery, but I think II can tag along if that's ok.

    We ride every Monday morning and every Wednesday evening, and you are always welcome. Just show up at the Recyclery at 6:00 on Wednesday evening. It's a nine mile ride, but it's a tight, twisty nine miles. Hope to see you there.

    On that note, if there are any other Bay Area locals looking to join in, feel free. About half the group is on vintage bikes on most of our rides.

    Didn't even try! I'm rehabbing from two total knee replacements. Don't take many chances. A fall could be really bad for me. Been using MX type knee guards. Not gonna do this again.......

    Got six of us out tonight, and 5/6th of the group was vintage! I think that's a personal best. Could have been seven, which would have been a shop ride record, but someone whom I'm pretending not to point the finger at didn't make it.

    Monday ride on a new bike (I rode it yesterday too)





    Now that I've checked Ala Carte off of my list, I'm pretty much down to a Mountain Goat Deluxe and a Cunningham as far as must buy/ride bikes. I suppose there's always room to revise the list though.

    Lee, yes sorry about last Wednesday and forgot to contact you, the City of Oakland was needier that I thought last Wednesday.There's always this week, you doing it again, Wednesday? BTW, is that Salsa brazed or tig, can't zoom in on the pics. Oh and is it a purchase or a borrow? I did a nice modern ride in Joaquin Miller, not vintage but I was the only full rigid (P-29er) and going down Cinderella rattled my bones good. I swear the RL will be in once of these great photo shoots soon!

    We're here every Wednesday night, at least as long as daylight savings is in effect. I went to JMP a couple weeks ago, but on my long travel bike. That's the way to go there, in my opinion. I've done all the trails there on my SS hardtail, but Chaparral was VERY nerve racking without a really tall front end on the bike.

    The Salsa is a purchase. It was on eBay, but it didn't get a single bid. I got in contact with the seller, who was local, and he agreed to $600 cash. Couldn't pass that up. He described it as "one of the last Salsas that Ross sold out of Petaluma" so I'm assuming 1998 or 1999. If someone can decode serial numbers, let me know.

    Anyway, let me know about this Wednesday. We'd love to have you join us.

    Maybe it's just the perspective playing tricks on me, but those bars look narrow enough to throw on a fixie with some hot pink Ourys to go play pretend bike messenger in the City.

    Haha! Nope, those are uncut barely 23" Ritchey Prolites. I don't cheat with those 720mm wide DH riser bars you be usin'.

    I do have some white Ourys I could throw on there...

    Not as similar as I was expecting. Both are 19" frames. Ritchey has a slightly shorter TT, longer stem. I'll have to double check, but I think they net out at the same overall saddle to bar measurement.
    Ritchey climbs a bit better, little more sketchy at speed. Breezer climbs ok but is happier at speed (and in the air). Both have that great trail input. Springy but not flexy.

    Finally broke the shop record and got seven riders out tonight (eight, before a mechanical during the first climb)! Thanks to Ben for making the trip out from the East Bay, and for bringing a beautiful P-22. And thanks to Chris for bringing his new Yo 2.0. Got to ride it for a short section of trail. It's just as awesome as the original.

    Lee and your Rafael gang, that was a lot of fun and simply a great group of riders. Count me in as a pseudo regular when work, nutty BA traffic and day light allow. BTW, wish we had a bit more water like mik_git ride below, nice to get muddy rather than dusty sometimes...cheers to all

    The golden light was reflecting off the clouds at sunset during last night's ride, giving the trail a cool glow.

    Unfortunately I am out of town for both this year. Have fun at Pearl Pass. I hope to make that someday. Looking forward to riding with you again soon.

    Pretty sure it was the same A'hols who maintain the trails and use spray paint on the trees to mark which trail you're on. And yeah, that spray paint is so much worse than what Trump did in the Wetlands of Atlantic City.

    Not the forum for this debate but... since when does one wrongdoing justifies another? Since when do trail users need to have the same political candidates? You don't impose your ideas by throwing paint on trees cause it lessens those ideas. Either you act right or you don't and that tagging is stupid on all levels.

    Who needs flex when you have that much class.

    So much awesomeness in that shot.

    Thanks ECS.

    I think it's actually important not to think too much about the bike while riding it.

    Not like the other?

    Took the ole P-22 slumming with some modernist cousins, 25 yrs old and she still rides so nice and climbs like the wind probably helps it's 10+ lbs lighter than some of the FSs. Hope you all had enjoyable rides this past weekend.

    Fun ride Lee and John, yup the RL is back in good form, though she bucked me OTBs, luckily I barrel rolled the landing pretty much unscathed. I'd love to tag along on the SC ride sometime. Cheers to all out there and particularly like the east coast rides with some water, mud and less dust!

    Regan E (of Retro_MTB on IG fame) is here all the way from Wales to visit the Bay Area, so I took him up JNT.
    What fun are these bikes if you can't enjoy them with others. (Lee, I'm sure you'll be meeting him this weekend).

    Yup. I'll be meeting him at the HOF induction and dinner tomorrow night. Wish I could have shown him some trails around Marin, but work has been getting in the way a bit too much lately.

    had to follow the above shots?

    Took the pair of Ritchey's for a ride with my Sister this weekend, so docile compared to the killer s**** posted by smartin, but someone had to post after those (BTW awesome pics, and really like the previous pics of the Ham!). Hope all had a good weekend of riding. cheers

    The hammer to the Cunningham's scalpel.

    Having spent the last couple weeks riding the Ham nearly exclusively I find it somewhat challenging to jump on this bike and really make it work.

    Probably because you are trying to go too fast.

    Been spending so much time on the Ham, Merlin and Yo I figured it was time to dust off some of the other bikes on the wall. Took the DBM out today, fortunately this is not a bike I need much time getting comfortable on again!

    Wow, loving that mantis! Looks like much needed rain later this week in NorCal, a brief farewell to dust, trails should firm up.

    I love how after a few weeks out of the saddle on this bike, and having gone through a rotation of a few others I felt right at home in the saddle.

    Agreed, that's a hell of a build with all the WTB goodies, like the McMahon fork on it too, I'm guessing pretty lite and smooth. What kind of seat post is that, not WTB or McMahon?

    That Elevator is just the most bad ass Merlin i have ever seen (maybe next to the one that Carsten grabbed some time ago .... #50 or so, but that is different).

    I had two of those elevated frames in the past and didn't even know there existed one with RC mounts. So rare. The fork, the parts ..... just can't stop drooling since i had the pleasure to see it live in action too this year. Stunning!

    It's possible. I didn't like how my 88 Merlin rode. I'm told the bigger tubed bikes ride stiffer...but maybe that's negated by the elevated CS design here.

    I just figure, if I'm going to do a titanium bike (which I find most boring), at least make it a cool and rare one.

    Going back to my roots. It's been a little while since I've ridden this bike (well technically it's twin) and it so it was nice to get it back out on the trails. I rode a new trail today and put a bit more pressure into the tires to avoid getting flats far away from home. Consequently, the bike was all over the place and I struggled holding a line on descents. Also, I've gotten accustomed to the custom (and relatively perfect) fit of the Cunningham and felt kind of cramped on this bike. Still after a few miles in the saddle and a couple PSI of pressure out of the tires I felt pretty good. Still love the bike and it's one that is for sure staying in the shed.

    I am with you on the boring and i can't exactly pin why.. I suddenly found love for aluminum. I never thought i would like it but i like stiffer frames now. Aluminum damps shock in a nice way.
