Curtis / KinkyBikes Sidewinder seems much more suitable:

Sidehack riding done right is pure art; and has a long history. I remember vividly watching an exhibition sidehack race put on by the Norton/Wasp teams at the Trans-AMA Motocross in Puyallup, WA about 1971 - - watching these big 750 Norton-powered sidehack rigs take all the jumps on Puyallup's pro track. It was mind-boggling. Totally insane, agreed, but it stretches your mind about what's possible on three wheels. The tradition continues to this day . . .

Diablo yesterday. Broke my chain right at the top, after getting off the lift. Taking the Dominions and the Alpines down without a chain was fun. Forced me to work on pumping the bike and not braking to keep speed up for the tables rather than pedaling - did better than I anticipated. That was the twelfth run, and I bagged it after that.


Stayed local and played around this afternoon. Taking mon-Wed to go check out stuff around Saratoga Springs, NY. Camp/ride/beer.

What's to get? It's a group of stills animated into a flick.

Actually, seems like you don't "get" a lot of things.

I liked it.

Hey, thanks for taking the time to set up those shots on your rides, scrub. Having done it but a handful of times now (and no timered shots), I appreciate what a pain in the *** it is. And you obviously put more effort into it than most of us have the patience to.

Welcome. Since most of my ride time is solo, if I want ride pics, they have to be done that way. The key is: set timer to 30 seconds. Have things set to take ten shots. Chances are good you'll get something.

Back from riding Lake Moreau trails - so good and chunky, I didn't stop much. Two pics in four hours.

I do enjoy your pictures, scrub. I always assumed you had someone else snapping them, but now that I know you're taking the time and interrupting your flow to set it up, I appreciate the effort.

The trails in and around Saratoga Springs, NY kick ass. Thanks for the tour, Luca! Three days of riding cut short to two, thanks to big rain dumps last night/this morning.

A lot of the area is off limits to bikes, but there is a **** ton that is fine. FYI, you are only a bit north of where those last pics are from. And you are just over the border from Killington, and a bit south of Whiteface Mtn. both with some great lift served stuff. There are a couple nice shops down south in Saratoga that would likely rent you a decent bike, not sure about where you are.

Hell, buy a cheap ass Nashber 29er singlespeed rigid to keep there for the summer. Not the ideal bike for all the stuff around there, but it sure beats not riding. Assuming this is someplace you go each summer or something, just leave it there.

Went for a 30 mile easy XC spin in Banff





The views really sucked!




Some amazing trail builder built these bridges for bike riders...they make perfect table jumps!
