    Just thought I'd say hi. I see some old members from a different group are over here. I live in Idyllwild and mostly ride the local trails.

    Hey, Simon, welcome! :) We've met; done some riding up there at one of the festivals. You worked at Brendan's shop.

    Anyway, glad you found us. Hope to hit more of your goodness this year, hopefully we ride again. Cheers, mate! :thumbsup:

    I'm with the the taco/tailwind combo and it depends on the trails. My current bike has travel adjust between 150mm and 180 on the fork and 170mm in the rear.

    Yep, that was me. Sadly the shop is no more, but hopefully we get to ride again. Just got some precipitation, so the trails are getting better than they were.

    Welcome @simonmtb. You have landed right in the epicenter of a fantastic online community. If some of the recent threads read a little strange, well i take the blame 100%.

    Now, let’s get down to business. Your not a single speeder or prefer hardtails do you?

    Hey @simonmtb ,
    Welcome to the organized chaos of imtbtrails.
    I have ridden once in Idyllwild. It was a great time, a strange time, and a fun time.
    My guides... I won’t mention any names...:whistling:

    ...okay maybe just their initials, @scan and some guy named somethinger rather the Giant was lost half the day. We climbed some road that was so steep I was lucky to turn the cranks one more revolution, then we got lost again and our knight Richard, in shining armor bombed through and showed us the way to some fun Singletrack.

    Would like to go back someday!

    Hey @simonmtb ,
    Welcome! I rode with you once with Tim and that deviant Joe Truth in your neck of the woods after some Chimay blue. Glad you migrated over.

    I think Thomas Mountain is calling.

    @scan,
    Do you remember if that ride report was on here or STR. That was a fun crazy day!
    I searched both and think it was on STR.
