Just a quick hellow to ya'll. I was just surfing around, saw this site and liked what people were saying. I my self have been ridding mtb since 1988. This year I did my first dh race at the Sea Otter and had a blast. I used to race xc but it was a pain lugging around 260# and trying to keep up with the 160# riders. I ride in the hills 3 times a week and use my road bike twice a week. I introduced my wife to the sport when we met and she has been hooked ever since. Thats all for now, gotta go change a derailer.
p.s. I forgot to mention, we live in Chatsworth CA. an have some of the best trails right out of our backyard
