    As common as SS is here on the internet, in my neck of the woods they are few and far between.

    You can try finding a Meetup group, even if they're not SS specific it's a good way to meet people and often SSers have more than one bike.

    The place I meet the most other people on SS are races/events. Have you considered signing up for a race? It's a good way to meet other avid riders, and SSers usually stand out in a crowd.

    Another good way to meet other riders is to volunteer for a trail work day and get involved in the community. Local advocacy groups and/or trail crews seem to have a higher percentage of SSers.
    Rigid SS 29er
    SS 29+
    Fat Lefty
    SS cyclocross
    Full Sus 29er (Yuck)

    Stop asking how much it weighs and just go ride it.

    I come across plenty SS riders in orange county. I'm still fairly new to it so I struggle on all my local trails.

    Yeah I raced all last year. To be honest I moved to Long Beach around 3 years ago and have struggled to find a group of people to ride regularly with
