Hiya
 
I'm Derek, and I don't look particularly sexy in tights.

I started mountain biking a little more than a year ago, and I just got hooked. For the most part, I do XC on firetrails and singletrack. I'm still learning as I go along, trying to develop my bunnyhop and other control skills. I have a helluva fun time when out riding.

For a relatively short time, I've already accumulated 3 bikes: a rigid, a hardtail and a FS.

Everyone meet The *****

I don't ride her much, only for commuting really (hence the bag). I think I'm giving her to my mom, she needs a bike. This is the bike I started on.


Everyone, meet Choco

Unfortunately, he's been gathering dust since I built the FS bike. To show him I still love him, I keep his drivetrain well lubed and tires inflated just in case someone needs to use a spare bike. I still use him on wet weekends when it's too muddy to ride the trails, and I decide to hit the city streets instead. He enjoys Golden Gate Park and running down tourists at Pier 39.


Everyone, meet Flammie

My new baby. Built her myself! I hope to see some more aggressive trail riding this summer with her. In fact, she's excited to go down Wall Point tonight; she's never been up around Mt. Diablo before. I hope to get her all dialed in by the time we start travelling to other places to ride.


...and that's my introduction :)
