    Say hello to @John Barbachano (we got to get him a better screen name!)
    John is a new member, lives in Palmdale, works at Northrop Grumman and is a solid mountain biker. John has trained with Rich Bartlett, been riding a Singlespeed for quite a while, done a bunch of racing, and now rides a Ripley!

    We went for a ride tonight after work at P12 where he proceeded to drag my azz all over the Singletrack. This guy loves to RIDE!

    John has been scouring imtbtrails Trailhead looking for guys to ride with. This bad weather has not helped.
    I’m gonna be dragging John with me to meet you guys, so WELCOME Brothah John!

    Yeah... But he owns the place, so he kinda has to stay around. :p :whistling:

    Welcome @John Barbachano - There are a few other single speeders on here. :thumbsup: Not me, though... I got really soft and lazy and put gears on the bike a few months ago. :D

I have ridden a lot of the trails you guys ride but its been a long time. And yes. I do go both ways. (SS and Full Susser). Looking forward to riding.

    Ed, my parents still live in the area. They just recently moved to Moorpark. I go down there frequently, and would love to ride. Grew up using Newbury Park bike shop when it was still in the warehouse building.

    Cool, another northerner for the collection.
    Welcome! :thumbsup:

    I think the ratio of North vs South is about 18.5 to 2895 o_O
