    Nice bikes and nice pic! That looks like a sick jump! I'm sure Alberta is a great place for mountain biking. I used to mountain bike regularly when I lived in New England, but now that I live in the midwest I've switched to road biking exclusively. There's nothing even remotely resembling a mountain here.

    I'm surprised you got rid of the Demo? Those bikes rock! I've seen that picture before, where at on the north shore were you?

    I love biking. I currently have a Specialized P2 for dirtjumping. Road for the Cannodale pro Devo team years ago. Now I'm just enjoying riding and not racing or being a dick anymore. :lol:

    Awesome pics dude ! :eek:

    I love mountain biking, but I have to ride my bike for like 20 kilometers up the mountain before I get to any trails. I have a piece-of-shit made-in-China mountain bike with solid tires (there's too many thorns here...). It weights so much that a 30 kilometer run feels like it's twice as long, but I suppose it's better exercise.

    :lol: hahaha

    The closest I've come to mountain biking is going off like 4 ft jumps in my old 20" bike like 6 years ago, I broke the front rim on that thing too haha. I've been wanting to get a bmx or one of those small trials bikes...I dunno if they're still made or what not...last time I saw one was like 10 years ago haha but I haven't been into bikes so I dunno lol.

    I don't do much riding anymore these days, but I've got a Voodoo Cycles Bantu frame that I still take out every now and then when I can find trails. I love riding and want to get back into it, but living in metro Boston there's not much I can do.

    Though, my bro tells me he found some pretty amazing riding this weekend, so he wants to take me riding out there ASAP. Maybe this will be the kick in the ass I need to get serious again. :yesway:

    EDIT - this isn't mine, but here's a shot of the model. It's a pretty kickass XC frame, and handles inspiringly well. Mine's a '98 or '99, from right before they briefly shut down production (they're back in business again), and if I do get serious about riding again it's a good enough frame that I'd be tempted to just upgrade the componentry rather than buying a newer ride.

    Which has what, exactly, to do with this thread, aside from the fact that our manliness outclasses yours? :fawk:

    If you ever get back into it you could hit the Middlesex Fells. It's only a 30 minute bike ride from where you are, and has some decent riding. PM me if you want directions.

    Actually, I'm like 90% sure that's the place Jon was talking about. Due to the wonder that is a cell phone, I caught him mid ride out there while we were making plans for Harpoon's Oktoberfest, and he was just giddy, saying it's right up there with anything he's ridden in the Berkshires and that he wants to bring our dad out there.

    I'll let you know, if not I'll be hitting you up for directions. :D

    I got rid of the demo because there aren't any mountains where I am. Yes, excellent bike but not practical for the flat land. The riding pic is from Courtenay, BC and yes I lived on the North Shore for 2 years. I plan to move back to BC after I do some time in the oilfield.
