The trails miss you...

Who's ready to ride a few trails this weekend? All this dirt road training is making the trails feel very sad and neglected (I know this because the trails talk to me). Last week it was just Steve "the Maverick" Seeber and myself doing our best to appease the singletrack gods and piece together a decent loop at Mont Alto. Hope to see a big crew this weekend. Where we ridin?


So . . . thought maybe we could share some preparation and planning for the 'big race for the socks.'
I am again running my hardtail with the kenda klimax lites and i got a little front fender just in case of wetness. My only other change for this year is that i am really considering ditching the camelback. I really like having a loose cool back, i guess. I am thinking that i'll carry two bottles (filled with cytomax at the start) and fill jersey pockets and tape stuff to my bike--though i' not sure how my stromboli will handle being taped to my toptube . . .
I will also definitely carry some electrolyte tablets after seeing everybody cramping last year.
Anybody else have any plans or changes or ideas???

A blast from the past!!

Just a little bit of history strait from 1995. My first custom bike brand new right after assembly at ABC. Wish I still had her. Yes that is 5" of drop from the seat to the bar no wonder I was so slow when I was doing anything downhill. Any one else got any pics of sweet old bike they used to own? Ibis, Wojeck, Fat Chance or any other cool old stuff? Post it and let us check it out and remember the start of the addiction.

As for one of the best biking saying I've hear to date "Burn Fat Not Oil RIDE!!"

Trying a 29er geared this time!!

Well thought I'd try that 29er thing again since I work at a Trek/Fisher dealer. The Fisher is WAY better than my Kona unit 29. The fisher is a lot stiffer and climbs 100% better. It hit the scale at 27lbs with a 17.5 inch frame. There are not to many places to cut weight but if I had to wheels and tires and I might save 1 lb. The first test ride went well last night at one of the harder riding spots in Omaha. I'll keep everyone posted.

This weeks ride

Thurs. Mont Alto 5pm...........Sunday Mont Alto 9am..........

Buck's first DH race in Keystone C.O.

First pic is off a small 2 foot rock drop, second is off a sweet double, and the third is through the rock garden at the start of the run. I got 3rd in beg. Took me 11:24 to go down the mountain. Pros were putting down 8's to win. I guess not to bad for my first DH race. One morning at Breakfast we ran into Travis Brown, he was racing SS in the XC race the next day. Kind of cool to run into people like that. Everyone needs to go out to CO to ride, it is just so sweet.
