    Long time lurker, got called out by @Runs with Scissors; rightfully so ;) on the survey thread. So technically, not a new member, but figured my first post should be to do a quick intro. I want to thank @Mikie for creating this great site; I’ve gotten lots of practical info on equipment, trails, and plenty of laughs lurking on this site. Like a few have related in the survey post, didn't feel like I could add anything meaningful on most of the threads but I know affirming the positives/negatives on bikes, trails, etc. can help another member in the community; I know it has helped me on the decision process for my current bike and on parts purchase. A little about myself; I got into mt. Biking during graduate school and when I moved out of California, been back for awhile and my road trips usually involve biking and food. Looking forward to being a little more active on the site but more importantly, this site has been a good reminder I need to contribute on the trail maintenance days!

    Does it freak anyone else out that there are shadow members who know who we are, but we don't know anything about them? Seems kinda sketchy. :cautious: :D :p

    Anyway... I'm glad there's one less voyeur spying on us! :thumbsup:

    Seriously... @Runs with Scissors needs to get busy with the callouts. Seems like he's slacking off a little.

    @Mtbikept Thanks for joining in. I see you have the required Santa Cruz. Some of us had to apply for variances with The Committee.

    Ride a lot. Write a lot. Commenting is contributing. Don't let lack of substance stop you! :whistling:

    Need to pick my next victim as cavalierly as the last...

    I really did only zero in on @Mtbikept because I kept misreading his username. :geek:

    Right? Is it the "Mountain bike I kept" or is it "Mt. Bike Physical Therapist?"

    I was reading it as "Mt bike ept." Way better than being "Mt bike inept." :laugh:

    As I stated elsewhere.
