About me: I love long marathon rides. Any of you are invited to meet us at Fair Hill's Gallaher Rd. parking lot between 9 and 10 am on Sundays! I race during the season in Beginner Senior II. I first started mountain biking in 1988 when I bombed around on my Ross 10 speed mountain bike. My first REAL Mtn. Bk. was a 1992 Trek 7000. After a long hiatus, I reincarnated the '92 Trek and rebuilt it. Now I ride a 1998 Trek 7000 frame that I built with all new components this year, and what an improvement in geometry! I'm hoping to complete a full season next year and gauge a move to Sport class.
Here's a pic from the D&Q summer sizzler race this year.
Seen Riding: White Kona HT or a black '96 specialized ground control(4th rebuild)

Hey!I see that you are from Marlinton.My friends Chad and Kristy recently moved up ther and opened Dirt Bean.They had been trying to entice me to come up and stay for a while to work.I had/have been considering it.I imagine it is mighty cold ther right about now too!
Man, was I glad to meet them when they moved here this summer. Not only do I now have a REAL bike shop that doesn't involve a two hour round trip, they serve killer coffees to boot. You really should come up for a visit. I'm sure they wouldn't know who the heck "davis" is, but they would know me by my *real* name, Pat. Hope to meet you sometime.

Folks - I'm a total newbie to the sport, but am discovering that I love it. Would love to come across a group willing to take me under their wings and show me the ropes. In exchange, I can offer hours of witty banter, a charming accent that's fantastic for picking up women (and the ability to use it for pure evil, mwahaha) and the guy in the group who'll make you feel better about yourself no matter what your skill level is ('cause you'll still be better'n me!)
Can we call you "Corky"? :D
