    I'm 6'1", 225#, 34" inseam. Yeah... my bars seem low. :)
    I'm pretty conservative in my riding so far. I've been mountain biking for 25+ years. Prior to that in my more nimble years I skated pools and pipes.

    On a mountain bike I'm comfortable traveling quickly on single track and picking lines. So far I've just played a bit in the mud and on some back country roads but no singletrack on motorcycle. I couldn't get on the Lippincott ride since it filled up, but would LOVE to do that ride.

    I really appreciate all the tips on setups. Let the farkelage begin.

    Haven't done Gridley yet but thanks for the tip. The ride looks awesome! I've done the Wood Canyon Vista-Guadalasca loop in Mugu State Park a lot. I'm in Taipei until the 15th but that Gridley ride looks like a plan!

    The Ortega trail looks ...uh... challenging to say the least.:huh
