Remember? People have to actually "remember" Tinker? :skep:

If someone has to take time to remember Tinker... who is still riding great... well... I'll just leave it at that because nothing that I was about to say would make you very happy due to it being over-bearing, inconsiderate, and probably pretty rude.

:madmax:

"Suarez"? Are you freaking kidding me?

He just recently finished RAAM, and still going strong.

He posts occasionally on MTBR, under dtjenterprises. check him out:
Twins last year!

From the looks of it dtjenterprises is someone that posted about Tinker having twins. Not Tinker himself. Tinker lives in Florida and this dude lives in Downey California. I did a little P.I. investigating.;)

Tinker living in Downey sounds more likely than Florida to me, but I haven't kept up; he used to train all over the LA "river" trail system. The man who trained with a backpack full of rocks and the negative rise stem are my two strongest images.

Here's a key bit of info you might have missed...his last name isn't "Suarez".

Pretty sad when you have the whole internet to get it correct. If you cared you'd have at least gotten the name correct.
