    It “could” have been the beer talking but we committed to the Epic Fullerton Loop ride for this coming Saturday after we finished up the Big Bear Social. Four.. maybe 5 Modello’s in and the FLOOP Burger was mentioned. I just have to keep my eye on the prize...

    This is going to be hosted by @Grego ( Don’t EVEN try to weasel out of this!)
    We need a time and location.

    I wanted to get this on the board as I’m sure I need to start training for this ride. Also I wanted to discuss what kind of tuning for my suspension AND what kind of gearing I should consider on my bike?

    Also, what type of tire, tread type is best? Can I run normal pressure or is there special air pressures for riding the FLOOP?

    As well...
    Should I consider a Full Face and should I bring pads?

    Is this ride above sea level?

    I have a work social function that afternoon. In Brea. That's waaaaaay too far from the FLoop to make it worth the effort. See?

    Besides, my cat needs a perm.

    I have you covered here Mikie. The Fullerton Loop is a local trail for me, so I'm experienced with the trails and the local mtb community. For attire, just look like the guy in the photo below and you'll fit right in. Wearing this outfit, you'll be safe at all of the street crossings.

    Also, make sure to take the obligatory profile photo at the water tower. The local residents love it when bikers do so. They get all hot and bothered and take photos of you on their phones. I'm sure they just send it to all of their friends. :thumbsup:

    What, huh? I don't remember this conversation.

    I don't think I can make it. After such a stellar ride in Big bear yesterday, I realized nothing can top that day. So I'm retiring from MTB'n on a high note if you will.;) Besides I think I have to work or something, or at least I'm looking into it.:poop: In addtion, it's my sister's brother's sister's roommate's birthday I think.:confused: Oh no, I think I'm getting sick.:gag:

    The only truth to any of this is that we indeed are going to do the FLOOP.

    I may be wrong, maybe @Grego can refresh my memory, but I think the Super Secret Floop Burger Joint will be closed that weekend for an interior remodel......

    Get a Barcalounger saddle with gel suspension. Lazy Boy makes an awesome one! You can get the one with the lever on the side and it turns into a foot rest out front!
