Just went on my first longer ride last week, about 18 miles in Aliso Viejo (Beach Area, Southern CA), loved it!. Been doing some street riding, climbing etc to get some stamina back, doing another 17+ tomorrow (Fullerton Loop), can't wait!


My new bike, 2010 StumpJumper Comp, completely satisfied with my purchase!

It might need a little bit of work first...it's a little old school, but just a
stepping stone to get me back on the bike, as I used to cycle alot. I really
loved GTs when I was growing up though.

Very interesting story on GT's history here Clicky

Plan to get something more modern in the new year.

Sick. Your bike is ridiculous, man...

My front brake is a Formula The One and it's the best brake I've tried so far.

Thanks! Yours is not too bad either. I'm gonna build up a 29er next.

Im still on the hunt

Found this Saracer Ariel 3, never heard of the bike but it got some pretty good components, is full suspension and i can get it for $1200. Only problem is that it's 18' and im 6'1 230lbs, so im not sure if its big enough, but i've ridden a 18,5' a couple of times without any problems, so maybe i can just adjust my way out of it.

Nice, I've come across that site a few times but just actually logged in. I like the info/pics they have, really helps.!

Checking out Whiting Ranch this weekend (Sunday) we'll see how that goes.

I love them so much, I converted my Custom TI frame to a Lefty frame last year....amazing piece of technology. Superlight and stiff, yet still plenty plush

do i need a floor pump for my tires? i have a blackburn hand pump and my tires don't feel filled enough at the highest pressure i can pump by hand. the tires say 35-65psi and have presta valves. the pump doesn't have a gauge, so i don't know the actual pressure, they just don't feel full enough. pissed because i am biking tomorrow and it felt like i let more air out than i could put into them

I would say yes, I mean there are ways around it (like the hand pump which you're currently having problems with)...but I consider having a good floor pump at home to be essential.

floor pumps takes so much less time and energy to air up your tires, plus they have a gauge so you can see what you're doing.

Hand pumps are more for emergencies when you're out riding....

Are you riding a mountain bike or a road bike? 35-65psi is way too high for riding the trails (you might be able to do 35 on a very hard packed trail, but not much higher)
