    You're right!! Time for Pacifica

    After mrpecussive gets his new shiny bike set up we'll get him to man up and come over to Pacifica.

    Maybe you should post on the Norcal forum, You'll probably get a pretty good response, make sure to mention that it's going to be a shuttle run, and lots of skidding.

    Might make this one, have some sort of social thing going on with the little women. Have to check and see if it's sat. or sun. Or, I might go to the Fontana race. Depends if I can find some one to share the excruciating drive down.

    Not to hijack your thread or anything mrpecussive, but sounds good.
    Had to check the NFL schedule. The Ravens are playing Saturday afternoon so I'm good but I'll have to be back by 4:30 on Sunday for the Pats and Chargers.

    JMP is more FR than DH. the runs are shortish but you can do them alot. I can make it as long a I can get a bike (aka norco, asta etc I <3 dogonfr ) other wise i'll be on my local trail greenbelt making some berms and little drops with scott maybe idk. 70% sure I can make it if I have a bike

    You can use the Norco if mrpercussive gets his new bike if for some reason he doesn't you can use the Asta

    yeah... haha... gonna take pics after i set the spring up... got a little proble swapping the spring though... i cant remove the current one...

    I've uncsrewed the preload all the way already up to where the nut is touching the piggyback. There's play in the spring but not enough to remove the retainer... Any ideas???

    Use some heavy zip ties to compress the spring. You should be able to get it of then,
    That's wierd though. I've only seen this before on really heavy weight springs.

    Try Peanutbutter milkshakes, @ 800 calories per shake, two per day. One for breakfast, one for a postride/exercise snack. That'll pack it on!! Trust me it's what I do for a living.

    dominicon is worth it... there's some nice stuff around there...
    a pic from the top


    as for directions... well, i'm not too good with those... but i know that you cross the san rafael bridge and find your way to dominicon college which is like 10 minutes from the bridge and you're there

    It's definitely an XC ride with some good downhill Singletrack. Bring a bike you don't mind pedaling

    Solstice is up at Fairfax... 1 1/2hour hike. 30 minutes of DH. Solstice sounds good too... but not too sure if i want to face the gnarlyness of solstice with the stiff rear i have now... I takes all the big hits and drops well... but the small bump stuff feels like a hardtail...

    hey tom... i'm really up for anything... just need to get my bike's rear suspension broken into... she may no longer be a virgin, but she's still a little bit shy about going all out and crazy...
