Good because I've been doing push ups to failure for about 9 months now.

Diamonds, sphinx, military-iso, one-arms, pike, decline, slow-twitch, ugh.

I think I'm ready!

I'm down for a trip up there...maybe after all the holiday nonsense is done and over with.

Lots of guys and girls from here go to Rays all the time but I've never been. I'd be up for it.

They've got quite a variety of challenges and they've got different styles of rentals to choose from.

your 29'er would be fine for the XC stuff they've got there but maybe not for the rest.

Rentals are $19 if you reserve one, $14 if you grab one when you walk in. A day pass is $25 on the weekend, $20 during the week.

Last time I was there, I rode the 950 up, rented a bike, wadded it up against a wall and torqued the front rim and my ankle.


If anyone is headed up, let me know

It's always interesting to see the topics that draw the lurkers and n00bs out of their caves.

+1 Ray's is awesome. Rental bikes have always worked fine for me.

Indeed. I'm always a little scared to bring up scat porn or bestiality because of that.



Ok, we'll figure out a weekend for a Ray's caravan....I'll bring the first aid kit, and booze to numb the pain on the return trip. Someone bring snacks.

Ray's has a deal with the local Holiday Inn for like $75 a night. Maybe Regular ADVOhio should invade ADVNEO for a night?

We could drink beer an give each other silly arms, or wet willies.
Maybe play dandyballs, or legs-a-spread and a game of penisbutt

Despite your homoerotic response, I know you like the idea.










Because it's FABULOUS!

Just got my Defender GTX gear in from Revzilla. 2LX jacket fits perfect (44" chest) but the size L pants are going to have to go back for some XL's. They fit, but just barely - as in "suck in the gut as much as I can" barely. This was my one concern when ordering as I am right on the bubble between L and XL, and knowing how baggy my XL Rotor pants fit I figured the L would be the safer bet. I figured wrong.
