    Hello! I'm a new member to IMTBTRAILS. I started mountain biking last May with the purchase of a new Specialized Stumpjumper. I've logged on about 1500 miles since and am loving it. I mainly ride The Fullerton Loop and Bommer Ridge. I would consider myself at the intermediate skill level. I hope to meet some of you on the trails and possibly do some group rides.

    Welcome to the club! As the others have said, there are a few Floopers on here. I have yet to give it a try... You'll usually find me in the Santa Anas. During the day, at night, north end, south end, and everywhere in between. We post up rides every now and then. :thumbsup:

    Newb......

    Couple of ground rules you should be aware of.

    1. you are not allowed to post FLoop rides....you just go do them in the shadow of secrecy and shame.
    2. you are not allowed to join any of my rides without the following:
    2a. Ride resume for the last year
    2b. Listing of all Strava segements for any ride I have posted....you must be in the top 20% in each segment
    2c. References from 7.6 ride buddies
    2d. Have no FLoop'd in the last 14 days
    3. you are not allowed to ride a geared bike.....SS's only.
    4. ebikes are not allowed
    5. not allowed to wear goggles with your half lid
    6. not allowed to use a front derailleur(see #3 above)
    7. not allowed to use any other nutritional suppliment on a ride other than Tailwind....and you have to buy it from @Mikie
    8. not allowed to use any tire other than Maxxis....and no Maxxis tires without EXO sidewalls
    9. if you don't ride a SC, you will be ridiculed.
    10. will have to figure out the rest of the ground rules on your own.


    Otherwise, all we ask is that you ride alot, and post alot. Don't be a lurker.

    Welcome from mtnbikej in Orange. :sneaky:

    @NIQ MAN, don’t pay much attention to @mtnbikej...he needs to wave a big stick and kick up dust around here because everyone always has to wait around for him to catch up, especially on the climbs and descents. How else would we know that he generates any dust at all?

    Welcome.
    I ride in the "Bommer Ridge" area (Elmo, Laguna wilderness) a few times a week.
    If you are looking for a ride I can help you find a group to ride with.




    Ride on!

    Welcome Niq Man! I'm new as well in the last few months give or take. What you'll find is a great group of people on this board who are quite helpful and care about the mountain bike community. I've managed to only do one IMTB social ride- a chance to meet some of the people on this board who have helped me along. ( and believe me I needed the help and advice ) There have been some cool bike rides and races I would not have known about if it were not listed on this site.

    Welcome to the best little mtb forum this side of the Pecos - or maybe this side of Barstow anyway.

    You will find this is a site full of passionate riders. But more than that, decent people.

    Except @mtnbikej. He's a hoodlum. :whistling:

    Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome guys, except for @mtnbikej. Ha ha. This seems like a very cool forum, unlike other forums filled with a bunch of internet keyboard warriors.

    Inside the Ride Report sub-forum is a thread called "I rode my bike today..." We put all of our smaller day to day rides in there. There are some real gems, and you might get some ideas about what else you'd like to ride. It's only 12,000 posts long, and there will be a written exam next Tuesday. @mtnbikej is the proctor. :p

    There are also a ton of full blown ride reports, so feel free to poke around! Jump in, ask questions, and make yourself at home.
