I've only been on one once, but I liked it. It was easier to roll through rocky and rooty stuff. It was much more stable. Bigger wheels mean more tire on the ground...I was able to take corners much faster.
Sorry to Hijack Tim, but I'm sure you're reading this anyway... Things are going good. The graduate work has picked up and now with daylight savings and hunting season there is no more riding of the local gamelands with endless unmarked trails that really flow on a SS. Rothrock has some sections of trails closed, mainly Lon Berger for logging, so I haven't made it back up there lately. Hopefully next Spring everything will be back to normal at Rothrock and we can get together to finish the course.
Tim how did the Oatmeal Stout that you made come out? I just picked up a case of Troegs Oatmeal Stout and it is delicious. I still have a bottle of your first homebrew sitting in the fridge waiting for the end of the semester... Keep in touch guys, and Tim keep us updated on Operation 29er .
Oh yeah, and Tim, on a side-jack,... Tony and I will be hitting up the trails tonight if you're interested. Not long, probably meet around 6:00 and ride for an hour and a half or so... Let me know if you're in.
(You know, I never saw a thread about that we spoke about in the lot last week. any news?)
Hey Kyle, good to hear from you. Hopefully I'll have this thing together by the time your trails are back together. No way I'm letting that mountain kick my ass again. The stout turned out great. I've been trying to save some for some friends here and trips to PA, but it's not working out. I'll have to brew up another batch.
