Do you like riding road? I've been thinking of a road bike for the days when my spine says no.
My wife grew up in Manchester, and her brothers used to ride dirt bikes in Case. I would like to check it out sometime. I live near the shore, so ride Cockaponset in Chester, mostly. I would love to have a fast trail like Gatorback here! That does look like fun!
I started out on a road bike but then I discovered mountain biking, which I think is a lot more fun. I still ride the road bike on occasion, but only to work on my endurance and pedaling technique.
Small world! Lots of family grew up in Manchester. Let me know if you get up this way, I can point ya to some good stuff up there.
Will do. It's nice to check out different places once in a while.
A friend want's me to do with him before I turn 50. I'm 44 now.
Trip of a lifetime, might hurt a bit though.

All are welcome here. My observation wasn't pointed in your direction anyhow.
Just a bit?
100 peaks? 10 straight days in the saddle? 120mi day? 13,000' of climbing each day?
Utah. Moab, Utah. So freakin' cool and different....and scary to think back on what I've ridden out there.
I'm still more scared on the side of a busy road though. That's dangerous.
Sent from my fat thumbs on a small touch screen.
I know, he's serious too. I puked in my mouth and passed out with just the thought of it.
Looks like I need to get training, I have six years to prepare.
No link showed up for me.
Cent Col Challenge.
More details at the link above.
Been to Moab, wasn't on a MTB at that point, unfortunately. I'll be back with the reign eventually. Those trails made me drool..
Yak, if it was me that bunched your panties, my bad. I actually follow this thread pretty closely, and wasn't looking to start a big hubbub (not that it was)
Funny how what we like varies so much.
It is ALL good!
'One man's meat is another man's poison,' as the saying goes.
This is the kind of riding I love: fast and flowing with lots of elevation changes, but not the kind that leave you exhausted.

Nobody bunched my panties. Pedal on.
Peddle on! (for Gummee)
Gotta love the innerwebs. Saw an ad for an NOS Sun Mistral/105 wheel on another forum. Since the ex- taco-ed one of mine for me, I've been wanting another wheel. Traded the guy a pair of SPD pedals for it.
Came in the mail today. Yup. Brand spankin new. Never been ridden. Can't wait to tear it apart! I'm gonna put the lighter rim I have now on there. The heavier rim on the new wheel is going to make a new rear wheel so it'll hold up better.
I think I know *just* the wheel... Its at the shop my buddy works at. Ultegra... Looks like poo, bearings are smooooooth.
Looks like a great place to ride and real fun. And I agree with you...whether its twisty roads for the street bike, or trails for the dirtbike or mountain bike, I like fast and flowing too.
I *love* rolling hills on the recumbent. It's fun to haul ass up and down!
yeah... but that mtn bike video, it all looked pretty darn flat to me. little bumps in the terrain aren't rolling hills.
