It seemed like a good idea at the time.


Gruuuunt.


The payoff at the end of one climb around here.


OMG! WTF?


Chill out. Relax. It's just some ******bag trail sanitizer. I moved the cheater rock out of the way, rode on.


Gahq;fasdofqwi55;aslf!!!!!!!!!


My closest local spot is roughly twenty minutes from home, by bike.


It's got a few fast, smooth bits. Mostly though, it's good old east coast chunky stuff.


Of which, well, sometimes you eat the bear.


Sometimes the bear eats you.

It's got several short but brutally steep ups of which you are required to partake in order to obtain the goods.


It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly reccomend picking one up.



Anyhow. Onward.

Clapped out, too large Trek XC hardtail with a 5" Marzocchi, decidedly un-round wheels, a tight skill set, and an audience? Hell yeah!


Gave a Ninham tour to a local ride bud. Pretty much dragged him there, especially after learning he had yet to ride there.


DUDE! Look what I found! It's fabulous!


Pre-short tearing incident.


Post.



No, really. You have no idea how wonderful this thing is!

That's trail gnome work right there.


Mighty nice of them.


Oooh, I bet this was a spendy crash.








As in the mega thread: if it steers funny, it's not my fault.


Asking quite a bit from an old SID, but it held up without a whimper.

Yep. Hunting season in the northeast.


The big game.


Mmmmmmm! Fun strip!


Which means it's Fall.


Which means night ride season.






Don't let the door hit you on the ass.

I'd recommend a hard rock sport disc or the Trek 4500 for you... great stuff as always Scrub. Looks a lot like my rides around here, minus the talent with the lens and the wheels...
