Oh cool. Here in Ohio the MTB trails are super choppy and tech they're not very fun to ride. All the videos I've seen out west they're pretty flowy even if there's some tech. Here its just weird rooty crap, weird rocks and short punchy climbs with tech downhill that you have to kill all of your speed on that end on more rooty climbs. Our Local MTB park has literally one jump and its just a little rock drop launch. Its more fun to ride my gravel bike back there, my fuel ex7 just feels like extreme overkill.

I mostly just do gravel and road riding here. Been registering for gravel races and getting my ass absolutely kicked and that's been fun.
Go out to Bentonville, they have amazing mtb and gravel riding. You can rent a emtb and ride all kinds of flowy trails. I've driven out there twice from San Diego. I'll be there again next spring.

I want to get a road bike so I can ride after work for exercise, but I also I want to buy a downhill bike for when I hit bike parks.
Not that I'm good enough to need a DH bike. My Remedy is more than enough bike for me right now.
I'm better at technical trails than I am at jumps on my full suspension bike. the full suspension bike feels weird to me on jumps.

A lot of my coworkers have bought used BMWs. One literally has four X5s -- two to alternate between when one breaks and two for parts. He just replaced the water pump on one of them, and I don't know if it was OEM but it had plastic impellers. Another had a 750 of some sort and now leases a little Mitsubishi thing. Another had an X5 and got rid of it for his more-reliable Dodge SUV. Etc.


A lot All of those German cars have plastic impellers on the water pumps literally everywhere they can get away with putting fiber reinforced plastic that will last the duration of the warranty period and not 10k miles longer.

That trek fuel though. That's a fat stack of hotpockets. You living that singletrack sampler life in the free candy van?
It's a 2021 Remedy 8, definitely a fat stack of hot pockets. My daughter has a 2021 Fuel EX. 
She just broke her wrist riding at Mammoth bike park with me.

I lived in the van for a year to save money for an early retirement plan, but then ended up with my dream job making decent money. So I moved back into an apt. Now I'm saving to buy a house.
I miss living in the van sometimes, but almost every weekend I'm living out of it on a road trip. 
My retirement plan is to have a house as a home base and travel the country in my van. Living places for a few months at a time. Either riding my mtb or snowboarding.

Picture is from a recent road trip to Bend, OR and her eating shit at Mammoth

Hell yea dude I'm super jealous. I'd love to go out there and do some riding. I'm not even sure I have the gas tank to ride in the mountains at elevation though.
Dude I'm fat and out of shape.
It's bike park season, we ride the lift to the top then ride back downhill.

Pedaling up trails at elevation kicks my ass, but I'll get to the top. When we were in Bend we rode a trail 5 miles up 900' elevation. It wasn't too bad.
Here in SoCal we have 3 local bike parks, 2 have a lift the other doesn't. The one without a lift is only a 300' elevation climb over 3/4 mile. It's a lot of fun, but that climb gets old after the 4th lap.
Where are you living now? There has to be good riding somewhere near you.

so i tried a feature to auto embed videos but our forums rules were not made with that in mind so all our signatures look out of whack full of videos, that being said i turned the auto convert feature off but we can still use the embedding for our own threads, so if i want to show you guys https://youtu.be/gEPWfkVZddI

I bought a used Lexus. Just looks like a big Camry, but it's driven me to and from wherever I needed to go. Overheated once when the coolant got low. I'm assuming it's got a slow leak somewhere, maybe in "the valley," but I'd rather add a little coolant every 2-4 weeks than deal with it in the "feels like 130+" temperatures.
