    I'll try for 1000 this year. I did 651 in 2008 but couldn't mountain bike until February.

    This sounds like road talk from the 50+ forum.

    I wonder why people associate MTB's and doob'age...I don't even know any bikers who smoke.

    I'm sure it was supposed to be an insult of some sort, but it wasn't insulting or funny...just a bit foolish.


    Usually the people who start silly "new years resolution" threads like these are 50+ fat roadies.


    Thank you for your contribution though...it's 4:20...you'd better go hit it, Sunflower.

    The one group mtb ride I've done (with some folks from mtbr) was filled with "safety meetings" or requirements to "set a waypoint" I couldn't believe they were still able to ride with how much they smoked

    Yeah, all the pot heads around here ride BMX. I'd love to put a wink smiley in right now, but thats a fact, not a joke.

    I think I'm gona aim for about 600. The fact that I'm hopefully going to uni in the autum cuts it down a bit.

    Let's just measure vertical mileage. Add up all the drops to flat that you do this year. keep a running tally, and at the end of the year,.....................It still won't mean anything

    That's a lot of curb drops for my little XC bikes, but what the hell. Count me in!

    2008 sucked for me. Did a lot of riding but it was just in one area on a trail that I building so my total dirt miles last year was less than the previous year. This year I am going to shoot for 500, and 1000 total (commuting and greenways).

    Drops over 10' will count extra, as will step-ups (but you only get to measure top of the lip to top of the landing). Extra credit points to be decided by forum consensus.

    Hey, wait just a minute there! But you are all welcome to get into a bidding war at the end of the season . It'll have the new semi-open-bath R1 Super, Sunline Boxxer direct-mount stem and Sunline 29" bars (pics to come).
