    This would suck. I'm in Prescott and just built up a dh bike this winter in hopes of using their service. I did notice a post on AZ shortbus facebook page that said they were only doing private groups. Nothing official but I don't think they have done any public rides in the last month.. Again this is just word of mouth.

    Thanks for the concern guys... As far as public local shuttles are concerned on SOMO, AZ Shortbus is now your answer. We've chosen to go a different route as far as our business model is concerned. Thanks for all the years of support and gnarly times! Please support ShortBus James and Gravity Riders Organization of Arizona to find more like minded riders to shuttle with or post up here on MTBR to schedule rides. Thanks Arizona, see you on the trails...

    Pedaling up still works pretty well, for us old school types. But thanks for the memories!

    Most of my riding buds and I have moved away from shuttling in favor of riding up, but we sure have some great GnarGnar memories (and scars). Good luck, Bob and the rest of the guys.

    I won't support them, actually. Not much else better to alienate other users than a freight train of non-climbing fatties.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    Hmm, I take it you've never climbed up National and noticed all the mtbers coming down that didn't shuttle that give mtbers a bad name. The shuttles almost never run to the bottom of national because there are lots of climbs and people on the trail, which is why they've always been limited to the trails with light traffic. Now any yahoo can go up and shuttle national, but responsible DHers can run shuttles on the DH trails and respect the user groups just fine, just like they have for years. I've had far more problems with non-shuttling newbs and weekend warriors not yielding while they are heading downhill on national, while the issues with the dedicated DHers are usually non-existent to slight. Of course if you are willing to give up your rights, I guess there's lots of stuff that you should stop doing, probably should stop driving for one...

    If they've already climbed up and you haven't, get the hell out of the way and have some respect. And, there are no DH trails on South Mountain.

    lol, panties in a bunch? Did you try calling "strava!"? So you don't follow the rules of the trail, yet you're trying to pin some other group as "bad image for mountain bikers". The cognitive dissonance must hurt...

    Other cyclists are the worst offenders, failing to yield to me when I've just climbed. Hikers can usually tell I'm not to be fvcked with during these times and move off the trail, often with words of sincere encouragement.

    Always the outlyers that spoil it for the bunch. In this thread, it's the internet tough guy Mrwhlr and his co captain "The krusher"... Way to derail a thread.

    Sorry to hear about that Gnargnar. It's been fun and I wish you luck in your future endeavors! Nevermind the haters... Do your thing!!

    I rode up Geronimo once. Once. And when I say "rode," I mean about 35% of it.

    The ignore button works great on the trolls polluting this thread.

    Point is other people will read this and may come to their own conclusions. Geronimo and Holbert are great for DH and hiking and thats all.

    When did MTBR turn into pinkbike, ive been gone a while and see tons of trolls in the AZ thread already.

    Funny how you guys took hook line and sinker. That KOM douche just started his account this month and only had 40+ posts. It's either a troll, or a roadie that started an account just to have a ***** fit. Fyi I'm a trucker who likes to scare the crap out of roadie climbers.......since you asked.
    .Hoog just texted me and said it's "Surface area to G2 tangential force vector ratio optimization. "

    Maybe so, but those pictures he is posting make me feel funny below the belt line.

    Humans aren't meant to live like rats in cages............

    and remember, this biking stuff is supposed to be fun. If you are finding that difficult you may be the problem.
