    Just saw this now!! A bit late...but I couldn't have gone anyway. Hope it was a good ride. Text is always the best option for a ride invite for me.

    Cool, John. After the Wed shower we will be up for more. We’re stoked on SoMo, as it’s close-ish and big up-down. After Wed weather we’ll get at it again. I’ll ping you... :geek:

    Good chit baby. Been there 3 times. Don't miss Hobart, Geronimo and Javelina! The climb back up is a mofo though.

    It's green. :eek:

    Nooo that's not it. I'll retell how I got here. Pull up a chair.

    I was planning to look for a bike this winter and maybe get one if I found something awesome - just to modernize a bit (12 spd, seat tube angle, reach, 29er, etc). Then my Tracer needed work and I bumped into an XL Firebird asking me to buy it. It fit great, and I was thinking about getting a bike anyway, so I pulled the trigger. 11 rides - dialed in. Then I rode my Tracer again back to back with the Firebird and realized I made a mistake.

    Soooo my options are, sell the Firebird and not replace it, sell it and buy something else, or trade it for something else at the shop where I bought it. I am experimenting with the latter.

    And frankly, I am really disappointed that as many times as I have posted a picture of a bike on my roof rack, that nobody has noticed the SocalTrailRiders.org sticker on the rack. :(:(

    I see. N+1 mitigated by S-1. :Roflmao

    Good karma wishes on your search for bi-wheeled bliss. :thumbsup:

    And it's really hard to see that sticker on a cell phone screen. :facepalm:

    I freely admit it pedaled easier than my Giant, for the 32 linear feet I pedaled it. :p

    I'm riding in the morning, but as you well know, the pickings are slim in the rain around here... The weather may offer some compensation for the route choice, though. :Roflmao

    He rode it downhill too. Nearly 32 linear feet! He was STOKED, despite it being three sizes too large and set for someone 40 lbs heavier!!!!
