Hawg, what pedals are you running? Did you convert to flats? The reason I ask is I didn’t here any clipping in or out.

Yes, I switched to flats about 1.5 years ago. I have One-Ups (aluminum) on both of my bikes. They are the best of the best flat pedals.

I've been running flats for a bit over 5 years now. Funny, but I'm thinking of switching back to clip ins. Got a good deal on some purty CB Mallets. That's type of cleat I used to run....

I won't ever go back. While nothing compares to the efficiency of pedaling while clipped in, especially during climbs, the freedom to move your feet on and off of flats has saved my ass countless times already in the short span that I have been using them. The only issue I have with flats is that they can get hung up when you are rolling through narrow rock gaps, like those in the Utah style tech. But I don't live in Utah. ;)

YeahBro, I hear ya. It's kinda why those pedals have yet to make onto the 29er. The first time I did it, I fell over cause I couldn't unclip on a stall-out climb.
It's not like I can afford to roll off of any more cliffs, either.

Been sick for the past few days. The wild weather from the last PCE ripper did me in, it would seem. Coughing up the taste of blood yesterday but I think I'm turning the page toward recovery. I haven't ridden this week. I hope I can roll on Saturday. Wildflowers are already starting up here now. It was in the mid 80s here today!!!

It's been in the mid 70's here all month. Looks like we'll set a record for no rain for the month of February. I'm recovering also from having my nose fixed again. It was a mess as the 3 hour surgery turned into 5 hours. Get my splints out Monday. Can't wait to breath normal again.

Turns out that all of us in my family had laryngitis. It's been going around. At least one of my clients locally has had it as well.

Anyway, I'm ready to get back on the bike now. :D

Laryngitis is going around here as well. Hope I don’t get it, glad you’re done with it Hawg. And Norton, that sounds painful and bothersome. Hope you heal quick and catch some of this weather. It’s in the mid 60’s to 70° here for the next 10 days they said. That old bike of mine is going to get a work out finally.

Thanks DJ.

It's been 10 long days but I finally got out there on two wheels again. It's Spring here for sure now. Super green grounds, super blue skies. A few wildflowers starting to pop. Butterflies everywhere. I did a Cherry/ GSC combo ride this afternoon. 12+ miles and probably 2000+'.

It's good to be back on the saddle. :D

I think saddle time is also good for your immune system.

Very nice trail, H. One of your regulars ? Your friend did a good rolling dismount from whatever made him crash. I like your videos and I like your trail manners. I would be happy to ride with you.....if I only I could get my are in the saddle again. :clap:

It would be a privilege to ride with you Ray, as well as any of you fine gents who visit this site.

He told me that he had been studying crash videos on you-tube. It would appear that he has learned well because his body rolling was spot on! That crash was a work of art if ever I have seen one, lol! I reached out to him the next morning and he was sore all over the right side of his body, as expected.

Anyway, I got out to Cheseboro Canyon this morning, one of my local favs. I had been feeling great with all of the warm weather we'd been having for the past few weeks. My body was loose and warm. Not so much today. I waited until late morning to get out there in hopes that it would warm up, but it never did. I was stiff and rigid like I am in the Winter. I was not all all riding well, except for climbing. It was like I was riding a rigid bike (even though I was rolling on my FEX today) on the DH sections.

Here's a clip of the fun DH in the area, but I did not ride it well at all today.

Looks like he washed the front tire out off the edge of the trail. I give him a 9.8 on the landing. :)

Yep, another ride today. Gotta get my fix before the dreaded week of rain arrives. I met a bud for a Brown Mtn/El Prieto ride this afternoon. Cool temps made the climbing tolerable. Good times!
