  1. Signed up, need to get the bike ready.
  2. Registration is up. https://www.bikereg.com/ssusaatx2019#Register
  3. My wife has MS and her car has plates, and we have a placard for the rare times she rides in my truck. MS is another of the "invisible" diseases. Just because she doesn't look sick doesn't mean she can walk far, especially in the TX summer heat.
  4. Never seen a cougar, although there are occasional sightings out here. Have seen a few bobcats over the years. The State Park has a wildlife viewing blind and I lucked out one night and got some pics and video of this one.
  5. Decent hubs, and Shimano brakes. Hubs are hard to change, Shimano brakes are easy to work on. Drivetrains all work pretty well these days. Most other parts are easy/cheap to swap.
  6. Forgot the Ring-Neck.
  7. 30 years riding the State Park out here I've seen hundreds. Western Diamondbacks, Coachwhips, Bullsnakes, Rat Snakes, 1 Hognose, lots of Diamondback Watersnakes, a few Water Moccasins. Also Ornate Box Turtles, Horned Toads, Tarantulas.

  10. You should have seen the lake a few years ago when it was completely dry. The trails are actually holding water in places right now that I don't ever remember in the past. The state park trails are more xc oriented, a few areas are a little more technical. The park is or was working on a re-nativization program and sprayed all the mesquite a few years ago, so most of it is standing dead wood. The goal is to return it to the grassland prairie that was here before the cattle drives brought in the mesquite. Just about every plant has a thorn on the end, so make sure your sealant is fresh. Maybe not the most exciting trails, but a nice area and a 25 mile loop is easy to do. We also have another area to ride that is a combo of jeep trails, motorcycle trails and a couple of short trails built for cycling. More tech out there if that's your thing. This is my home trail, so reach out if you're in the area.
  11. DeVinci and Ibis demos available at Velorangutan in South Austin.
  12. The mechanics quiz is very up to date. The last question is: What Is The Recommend Tuning Specs For A Rock Shox Mag 21 For A Downhill Rider Weighing Over 180 Pounds? When did the Mag21 go out of production?
