    Hi all,

    Tony here...just discovered you guys this week. Like what you're doing here. I'm from Connecticut, but moved to SoCal about 5 years ago. I've also recently started an MTB Trail Guides channel on YouTube so if you have a minute give it a look and let me know what you think: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0LThwN4Bma5KuIaRs0Xeeg?view_as=public

    No I'm not here to promote that - it's just what I've been putting MTB time into lately. ;)

    I also had a "new bike day" this month. I picked up the new YT Jeffsy CF Pro from the YT HQ in San Clemente. Let me know if you have any questions about that too. I love it so far.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all. Thanks - Tony

    Welcome @the outsider you’ve found the right place. Bad azz bike you got there. Not sure where you’re located but we have folks that ride all over SoCal. Jump in and ride and don’t be shy and talk about it here.

    Welcome Tony.....Nice bike. Curious what the long term review is on it.

    You've found a good place here. We are not the biggest board, but we are a good community.

    Participation is key.....ride lots, post lots.

    We have a little bit of everything here.....from Floop'ing to DH to Death Marches.

    Keep an eye out in the Trailhead forum for ride invites.

    Don't be a lurker.

    Mikie does a good job of keeping us in line.

    I'm in Orange, usually at the Oaks, or out in the Santa Ana's. :thumbsup:

    Hi @the outsider !

    Welcome to the best little MtB forum this side of the Pecos. You are the second guy to join in the past week with a Jeffsy. Great bike. I think our Santa Cruz requirement may have been relaxed a bit by @Mikie - the site's owner and all-around great dude.

    Ride a lot, write a lot. See you out there! :thumbsup:

    Howdy! I just got a jeffsy recently too. Is that the 27 or 29er? I took mine to snow summit for the first time yesterday, mostly just going really slow following my wife around.. but I did do one run down miracle mile and it handled awesome.

    Hey Floyd - I'm on the 27. I like the more nimble feel of the 27, but thought about the 29er for a bit before pulling the trigger. I'm loving it so far!

    I subscribed to your channel, watched a couple vids. So far so good! Keep up the good work. Like the Santiago Oaks vid, haven't been there and you really cleared up some of the questions I had about it.

    Hi Tony. Welcome. Fullerton? I spent 4 yrs institutionalized there way back when there were still orange groves on or at least near campus.

    Awesome. I got the 29er because I read the 27 was more planted/better at dh and the 29 has more of a trail bike feel. Since I already have an enduro bike I didn't want that much overlap between the 2 bikes. But the 29er does so good at dh now i'm wondering if i'll even want to take the enduro out anymore :)
