    It's easy.....you are trying to be faster. You put the effort in....the results will follow, as you are seeing.

    Did the evening B star ride with @Faust29, @mtnbikej, @Grego, and @singlespeedrider. Of course I use the words "ride with" loosely. They could easily leave me in the dust but didn't. :thumbsup: I always appreciate that.

    First time I've ridden at night. Lotsa fun. Even got a couple PRs. :geek:

    18.5 miles and 2,400 feet. Good times.

    The tarantulas were out again. Someone needs to tell them not to party so much.

    View was pretty spectacular too.

    That's funny....I took one from the other angle:

    Fun ride tonight with the guys.

    As usual I had to do more....so I set out early for some extra credit. Got a late start and didn't make it to the top on the bonus loop....most of the way.

    Made it back down to the truck and everyone was ready to roll...but had to wait a few minutes while I refilled bottles and threw my light on.

    Hot temps on the first loop.....started hot on the second loop, but cooled down nicely.

    Good times.

    @Mikie - You would have enjoyed this one. Aside from the switchbacks of doom, it wasn't technical. It was butt kicking single track for almost the entire ride, with a good dose of ridge top riding at the end. I'd like to do this one again at some point. :thumbsup:

    That looks simpler than the Google Earth flyover I use all the time... Not as detailed, but it gives a good idea of the terrain and distance. Very cool... @knucklebuster

    @Unbreakable - The link in Dave's post gives a good overview of a full Whiting- Luge loop that you're thinking of doing. Pretty cool format to see it in...

    As mentioned earlier, good times riding B* last night with great crew! Love it when I get a chance to ride during the work week. At one point, RWS and I were conversing and Faust chimed in saying,"hey, did you see that tarantula?" and we're like "what/ where?" Apparently we barely missed riding over one. Lucky spider. Would hate to get tarantula guts on my tires. I don't think any of us ran any over. Nice pace. I set over 20 PR's and wasn't really trying. Took the first single track down and found some Bunnies. Two of them got out of my way, one did not. Missed him too barely. My Stans 330 hub is making some serious noise again. Probably time to finally replace it with something else. Thanks for posting up the ride Faust and great riding with y'all.

    Stans is replacing my 330 HD with a Neo. They know the 330 was a bad design. It wouldn't hurt to ask. They are very responsive via e-mail.

    Quickie. Made it home by 6. Presto change-o and riding by 630. Mentally- coyote -dripping cave -cholla -stairs - down the trail to the beach- then climb to the house. First clean run down stairs on my Pivot. PR'd it by a second. Climbing cyclist crushed my Mentally time, but it's all good. Great solo ride.

    Huh? Why would someone climb Mentally? It's not really rideable that direction is it?

    Hope the Neo works out well. Good to see they will Stan by their product. Maybe I'll go that route too or just splurge on something else.:eek:

    @Cougar , @mtnbikej and @herzalot -- I should have said "pushing" rather than "climbing." With a boom box, no less. But it was cool as I am just getting the feel of these new tires on the Pivot (holy sh*t... this geometry... with this grip... with this roll... I am going to get myself in trouble when that new 34/120 fork is installed!).

    BTW, @herzalot 's voice was in my head on mentally and on stairs "Look ahead, not down, just like downhill skiing..." That REALLY helped on stairs.
