    Hi all,

    New forum member here. Just a quick intro.: newish to mtb, picked up a Santa Cruz Chameleon a couple of months ago and been having a blast with it since!

    I found this forum while searching the web for info on some local trails (L.A. area) and it looks like a great source of info., so thanks!

    You are only allowed to be a member with a Chameleon if it is a SS. If you have gears on it, we don't serve your kind here.

















































    :whistling: :rolleyes:
    Otherwise.....welcome.

    Welcome to the asylum!! You'll have a blast here, and you'll find some great rides. Maybe even lead some. Chime in often, and give as good as you get.

    Welcome @carl As you can see, we are a friendly bunch!

    We already have a Carl and two (or is it three) Chameleons, so we have high expectations. I highly recommend that you link up with @mtnbikej for an introductory ride!



    (OK, only a madman would do that.)

    Welcome to the best little mtb forum west of the Pecos! Ride a lot, write a lot! :thumbsup::cool:

    @carl Welcome!!!

    Don't worry about J.. we are still trying to figure out exactly what bio engineering accident he was involved in early on.. you see he has lost the ability to count beyond 1 gear BUT in exchange he now exhibits an uncanny ability to basically ride.... Forever.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    I've definitely got the shifty-one, Does it count as a single if I only use one gear at a time?

    Hopefully I'm at least the first Carl with a Chameleon! :bang:

    Three to one shifters to singlers, although the singler looks to occasionally backslide!

    Welcome aboard Carl. What trails in L.A. have you been riding? I've been known to wonder around aimlessly through out the Verdugos, the Santa Monicas, and the San Gabriels.

    Welcome @carl !
    Great group of guys here full of themselves, ha hah! But that's what makes this place fun.
    Great to see you are one of the "Cruz Brothah's"

    We will hit some dirt together, oh yes..... we will.:thumbsup:

    Ride lots and Post Lots. That's what makes this forum go round and round, well, other than the constant derailment and schmack talk banter.

    Welcome aboard from another newbee. I am known as the tool whisperer. I whisper when I purchase tools so the better half doesn't find out. :Roflmao

    I like the way you think. You will fit in fine here! Just stay away from those sado-masochist singlespeeders. They ain't right in the head. o_O :confused:
