  1. I just checked the Leadville 100 results for 2019 and our own Hoss Kleinschmidt from Austin finished in less than 12 hours. I’ve ridden with Hoss on many occasions and he is a machine. Congrats to Hoss and all the other finishers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Ok, I'll play along too.... Got back last week from a 10 day trip to CO. We called it a "greatest hits" ride. I'll let you decide. Early on we hit up Monarch Crest trail Then we went over to CB for some 401. Next up we were in Telluride for the annual Yeti Tribe gathering. Riding in the high alpine aspens. Then for a change of pace we ended up in Fruita riding some of the Kokopelli trail stuff
  3. I suppose that is one method to help make Peddlers Pass ~enjoyable.
  4. Dude, that's exactly what that shit does to me. Probably because I'm a total lightweight, but a good long hit and 3 hrs later I look at the clock and it's only been 3 minutes. One lap of PP would feel like it took me all weekend.
  5. Thanks for the input. I had a great trip riding at Valmont Bike Park in Boulder on the way up, then rode a lot of National Forest (?) trails around Teton Pass in Wyoming, and spent a couple of days at Targhee Resort, also in the Tetons. Spent one night each in Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, then rode at Harriman State Park. That place had the only semi-flat terrain I rode over the whole trip, and was smooth and sandy, and of course , beautiful! I finished it off with an OTB crash over a cattle guard in Gunnison, Co. on the way home .(Had to crash at least once, even if it was .2 mi. from the end of the last ride of the trip.) Lots of happy trails, though! And the weather, OMG!
  6. It's going to happen, it's near impossible to stop them from sometimes getting through. Just report them and I'll take care of them as soon as I see the reports (or I see the bots myself). I do have third-party software installed that catches most of the bots, but it's never going to catch 100% of them. Unfortunately I was gone for a while today and wasn't able to nuke that particular bot and delete their posts until now. ..Al
  7. Wont be drinking the results of this until NYE, but's there's some goodness on the way.
  8. A friend took a fall downslope while hiking and broke both wrists. He and his wife had to take their relationship to a whole new level. Don't break both wrists!
  9. Last post ride beer of my trip. Packing the bike back up today for flight back tomorrow. This beer was awesome but very dangerous.
  10. You have no idea how many parts I travel with as backups.
  11. Sarge has it right. I remember in college listening to a song and thinking "this is an awesome album."
  12. If you have been smoking that, time is irrelevant. PP would seem like 20 miles.
  13. Fake news! PP is less than 3 miles. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. Probably at the 4.20 mile mark...
  15. Phil's was a blast. Tomorrow I start a 5 day guided trip out of Durango. We start with Hermosa Creek then hook up with the Colorado Trail.
  16. When I saw this thread listed in the category on the Home page, the line read, "Are we being probed by The Tip" Which raised even more questions.
  17. Welcome Gigantor!!! I missed seeing you here and on the trail!
  18. Let me add that these are *NOT* thankless tasks. You may not get thanks directly but many / most people know that your work is helping them. But then there a few people...
  19. Folks, take a new minutes and really give this some thought. ARR has been around, probably longer than you realize.(I think 30 years!!!!) They've done...probably more than you realize for our local MTB culture. Many of you know that I've served on the board and some of you have as well. Many, many of you have helped and still help build and maintain the trails we enjoy. This is because of the ARR leadership and their dedication. And ARR is made up of a few dedicated leaders. Charlie, Kent, Lucie, Val, Rochelle...to name a few. These few people keep the wheels turning, grant money flowing and dirt digging. Without their leadership....who knows where we'd be? That's why I'm asking all of you to consider contributing extra to the future of the group that's given us soooo much. I'm not gonna lie: being on the board takes time and dedication. But ultimately, it feels fantastic to know you're guiding the group that helps all of us do more of what we love. Join the board. Or nominate someone. Either way, contribute something, right now. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/G5X629N
  20. I knew but in case someone else didnt Adjective. pedantic (comparative more pedantic, superlative most pedantic) Like a pedant, overly concerned with formal rules and trivial points of learning. Being showy of one's knowledge, often in a boring manner. Being finicky or fastidious, especially with language. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  21. Okay, so update... we (he and I) went through the process again, and designed the perfect bike, then all this happened: https://singletrackworld.com/2019/05/marino-bikes-sell-off-of-sick-bicycles-frames/ https://www.pinkbike.com/news/sick-bicycles-manufacturer-selling-off-sick-branded-frames-claiming-lack-of-payment.html https://www.archynewsy.com/manufacturer-of-sick-bicycles-that-sell-frames-claiming-no-payment/ Followed by this: Wife in the Hospital... So, we'll just have to make the most of the frame I have for now... I went ahead and built it as-intended: My shoulders finally felt good enough to get out on it since the previous post, and I have to say, this thing feels even better than I remembered; I pretty much hit the nail on the head! If I ever get the new one, it'll be the perfect hardtail, IMO (it's already the best I've ever ridden). But alas, my shoulders didn't last long, so I'm going to chill until at least fall...
  22. Elect me and I promise to build a wall.... ride! And bless the land with gnar for all!
  23. Let me get all my kids out of diapers and I'm all over one of these thankless volunteer jobs. Thanks to all that fill these positions.😎
  24. Gigantor LIVES! 😲 (kinda sounds like the title of a Japanese monster movie) Good to see you hanging out with the riff-raff in the new digs here at AMTB. Was sorry to hear of your, ahem, injury. I'm just so happy that Spicewookie was there to share it with you. I know it meant a lot to him. 😏
  25. So now there’s a 2nd reason he’s called gigantor [emoji15] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  26. Due to crappy humid weather this has been my go to bike for the last 13 days. Decided to do a 30 rides in 30 days challenge. 19.1 miles per day currently at mile 247 as of today.
  27. Best $5 ever spent. πŸ₯“πŸš²πŸ‘ Loaded for Short Bus ride to 10K feet, Winsor Trailhead, Santa Fe More about what NOT to do on that ride, Click HERE πŸ™„
  28. Do gravel/dirt roads count? Sequoia National Forest, last week. Got in some riding on a camping trip. -cls
