    Thanks! I updated a few. Holy crap, I found a rock that wasn't named, didn't know those existed, lol. If you ever feel like taking a hike or a ride sometime, I'd love to get pics and names of everything else!

    I started making a photo map of some of the features out there, and I'd be up for adding more if someone wants to give me the tour sometime. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nuDfPC-N8k8VoMdUhy74_GDUgUo&usp=sharing

    I put that together, glad it's helpful! First-Blood, let me know if you'd like the data, and I'll send it your way or give you edit access to the map. There's a beta version of the Android app out there now: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.caltopo.android&hl=en

    Quick question on Suburban Ninja... is the entrance at the Kati Ln cul de sac OK to use? I've been getting on / off a little farther up stream by going around the drainage pond at the end of Logan Ridge Dr. Would love to add some more dirt into the ride!

    Double down is good to go, the rocks aren't even very slick. There are mud holes on picnic visible from the Swag bailout, but I didn't venture further.

    Pay It Forward

    I ran them for a couple years on my Karate Monkey. I liked them. They're not life changing or anything, but they give you a different hand position on longer rides, while still maintaining enough control to handle unexpected bumps in the trail. Basically, on tamer sections of trail or on the road, I end up riding with my thumb over the bars pretty often. The TOGS make it so you can ride with that grip in slightly more technical bits of trail, and make it waay harder to accidentally slip over the top of the bars when you hit that rock you didn't see. Now that I'm on a bike without them, I find myself missing them more that I thought I would. Next time I switch grips on my Stache, I think I'm gonna put them back on. You should try them IMO.

  10. Not sure if it would be helpful or not, but I can probably make a high res topo map of the property for you that you can load on your phone. I've used them while scouting trail so you can reference where you are vs where any terrain features are while you're in the field. Then again if it's just a flat square of land, probably not all the useful.

    I don't have an extra xD driver. Pretty sure they're hub specific anyway, so mine probably wouldn't fit your bike even if I had one. Just to make sure I'm not missing anything... I have a cassette that is xD compatible, and I'm willing to sell it separate. I don't have the xD driver that would replace the shimano 9 spline driver on your wheel now. That's what you were asking right?

    Best Place to ride after a rain storm?

    That place is awesome. I grew up in the midwest, and Ray's opened when I was in college. A few buddies and I made the 6 hour drive once or twice a year for five or six years straight. It was a great way to spend a weekend, and really helped me learn to jump, ride skinnies, and a lot of the little techy stuff that you don't often stop to practice on a normal trail ride. By the end of the weekend we could barely walk, and couldn't stop smiling :) There's a lot less market for something like that down here though, since we don't have to put up with 3 months of gray slush when it's tough to get out on trails.

    FYI, the right brake lever is "sticky" which seems to be a problem with SRAM brakes of this vintage... They were fine when I took them off, but I guess sitting in a hot car one day was enough to cook it?

    Funny how different people can be regarding temperature. I've been telling everyone the opposite :) I make a lot of heat, if it wasn't for wet feet from all the water crossings, yesterday's weather was just about perfect for a guy like me. I did the full three laps with just a light long sleeve shirt, fully unzipped jersey, and a pair of lycra shorts. Last year when the DS was in October, it was 85 and humid and it about killed me.

    Sorry to hear that Jiri! I was hoping to see a full single speed run from you this year 😉
