Snotcycle 2010 is in the books





Sorry Paul! Couldn't find any pics of you. You're too dang fast!

Well, that was quite the experience. Temps in the teens. No snow for the Cat 3 race at 9am.

3-4 inches of snow on the ground by the time the SSers raced at 1pm. Blizzard conditions while we were racing.

I will DEFINITELY do it again next year.

Cheers brothers and sisters.

Well what is mother nature going to bring us this weekend. Good luck to all you Snot cycle racers. I'm going to try and ride at Caledonia. Meet at the lot and ride time 9am. Stay warm and have fun.

Snotcycle, Yo

Anyone racing the snot - post up your plans for raceday so we can hook up and share some cheer at the venue.

The SS race doesn't start until 1pm - chances are my balance will be way off by then...

Wanted: SS frame

Does anyone have a 17" single speed frame laying around they want to unload? I need it for a 26"...I'm shamefully building a 26" SS behind my 29er's back.

Well lets try it again......Pine Grove Furnace.......Ride time 9AM......This will be an ass dragging ride so don't worry about being slow cause i sure will be.

help wanted

We've had donations of objects in 2 of these photos and are working on the other.
If we want to do it for free, we'll have to pick them up and get them to the bike park site,
We'll need something to lift these off truck and into location.
Ideas? Rentals? Borrows? Backhoe, straps, forklift, flat bed??? anyone??
Can Mooch bring a crane home from work some night?

2010 Swap! Bring your extra junk! I am getting a table so if anyone would like to split it with me $20 gets you half a table! Or watch my half of the table while I shop and your half is FREE! Dale?? Morgan?? Bueller?? Bueller??
Some of the stuff I'm selling:
2007 GF x-cal 29er frame 17.5 Med $150
27.2 thompson posts one new one used $50 new $40 used
Tons of other stuff! To much to list!
Figured I'd give all the MBMers first crack at the frame!

Who you really are...

I found this mtb name generator when poking around on mtbr. When I plugged in my real name it called me "Poser Disposer".

When I plugged in my blog name it called me "Bomb Dropper". How did it know I had too much chili and beer last night?

Try it out. What's your mountain bike name?

Saturday Ride

Saturday ride in the Shed, sunny and near 50

or Sunday, cold with freezing rain

Monday ride

Anyone have a cushy schedule where you are off work for MLK Day. If so you wanna ride? It can be our MLK Day ride! Any specific times work best? I am thinking maybe 2p, but I could do morning also.

Thursday, January 14, 2010


The ride this Sunday will be at Pine Grove. Meet at the furnace, ride time 9am. I'm going to do a new route to the group but I'm sure you all have ridden before. We're going to hog up some of Bret's trails. Hope the weather holds.

Please take a moment to renew your membership or join us for the first time.

Snotcycle race

Last year a bunch of us MBMers did this race and had a blast. Although it's a race it has a party atmosphere and is more about having a good time. I encourage everyone to come out and join in the fun! Kegley, Trish and I are already signed up to race SS. It's a great SS course! A 16-20T SS gear will work nicely. I will be using a 17T or 18T if conditions aren't too bad. Click on the title to register. Sign up soon before it fills up!

What are the riding conditions up there?

New Club Energy Bars now available!

SPD Cleats

Does anyone have some SPD cleats laying around? I want to try one of them fancy, elite spinner classes Trish and Josh teach at Golds but I'm an eggbeater user.
