    Pictures from my ride at Thomson

    Rode at Thomson today. Took a friend, (thats his Raleigh you see not mine) He was a bit slow but it was still fun, I Powered ahead and then turned back and went to check up on him then rode ahead again.

    LOVE THE SEAT POST I had 0 problems. Only problem on this ride was my hydra-pack leaked everywhere.

    For the sake of the forum and such, I have all the Pictures In a Slide show (new camera still trying to figure it out, so pics aren't the best, theres not to many, as I'd rather ride then take pictures.)


    Click below for Slide Show. Some of the pictures are out of order, sorry for that.




    EDIT: sorry for the speed, I dont know how to make the slideshow slower

    Speaking of Raleigh, are they any good at all? I haven't really hear of them before..
    The seats are really comfortable though.

    They make some good bikes. I can't believe you just put up two pics.

    **Thats strange....the first time I looked it was only going to the first two.

    Thanks, No problem.
    I'm actually thinking of going to the trails on the days that the SORBA peeps meet there and help them out with maintaining the trail... I ride and tear it up, so might as well help.

    Roots like that are why they have dual suspension. I love riding down hills covered in roots but hate pedaling up them.

    I gotta say I'm really glad to see youth getting in the sport. I'm 29 and considered the kid around here since all the other riders are late 40s and 50s, the bad part is the best one is late 60s and they all can rip it up.

    haha, seriously there arent enough young ppl in mtb, im 15 and started 2 years ago and i cant find anyone thats man enough to get in shape and really ride with me, so i end up riding with a bunch of 40+ year old guys, (to some extent this has its plus's, im never the one waiting for everyone else, but do keep up pretty well)

    The guy that i always ride with is starting a bike youth group. So he's basically looking for absolutely anyone under 18 and giving MTB lessons for free (plus he made a deal with jamis where he will be able to sell high end bikes to the kids for half price), so i will hopefully soon be able to find ppl my age who enjoy biking

    Why do I have trouble believing this?


    Because half-off is less than cost, and Jamis likes money.

    riding roots like those in the photos hardly even warrant any suspension at all, really.

    I love Mtn Biking. My trouble is non of my friends can really handle it or like it.
    Believe it or not, most of the riders on this trail are riding duals..... All the crazy good people that blow by me twice.

    get a hair cut?!!?
    Can't go much shorter.

    Whenever I take pictures, none of roots, they always come out looking like a smooth trail. I'll give Cheeto the benefit of the doubt.

    However, Cheeto hardly has any suspension to begin with.

    It's very hard to make things in pics look as tough as they really are. Thats why Highrevs gets big spreads in Decline and I just post pics here.

    I for one see how dangerous your trails are. Everywhere you turn there's that creepy looking guy with the bush axe.

    LOL^

    Yea none of the hills or drops, or the root traps show up,
    From pics I;ve seen this trail is not a Pisgah or Tsali but it's not a jeep road either.
    Yea I want to take this trail on a dully or a more Burly Hardtail, with maybe 120mm travel or so.
    I'm killing my fork on the drops.
    I'm waiting for something to just snap and springs go everywhere

    This section of trail in DuPont was(they rerouted it) pretty tricky. A series of drops right into a nasty root garden followed buy a big tree in the middle of the trail. If you take it with speed and gap the roots you could wipeout the tree if you get bounced off line. In the pic you see none of this.

    Much gnarlier -- that's why the TGMBG invented the HoverBike® (refer to photo above) - - to stay two feet above all that nastiness down at trail level.

    I tried out their patented HoverBike® technology a couple summers ago at Silver Mountain in Kellogg, ID with much the same results:
