I don't know if you guys have noticed, but I think this board gets more traffic than any of the regional boards other than the Colorado and Cali boards. There also seem to be more and more new posters on the board. I think it's time for a general board roll call. Where do you live, how old are you, what's your primary bike, who from the board have you ridden with, and what's your brew of choice? (Ignore the last question if it offends you.) If you have a photo of yourself, post it so we know what you look like!

Earthpig (aka Geoff)

Location - Boise, on the Mesa

Age - turning 35 tomorrow

Bike - Ventana X5 (fork finally back from Marzocchi!) (also have a road bike, cross bike and a hardtail)

Have ridden with - smilycook, crash_burn, twistedcrank, flipinidaho, Nels, mtnbkrdr98, lv2ride, Bombin 40x, riderx40, Wayndar, Irishbuddha, MarkV, rideit, Visicypher, adso, justen, and Sparticus from the OR/SS boards. (Also have met CBro and BelaySlave, but have not ridden with them)

Brew - PBR when I'm thirsty, Miller Lite when I'm watching my weight, OE or Bull when I want a quick, cheap buzz, and Black Butte Porter when I want the best beer on the planet

Adam W., otherwise haven't ridden with anyone from the board. Mostly do my riding by myself. I do enjoy reading everyones exploits and the information is great. One of these days I'll break out of my shell and join a ride.

Fave beer, hmmmmm, for starters: Red Hook Sun Rye, Portland Honey lager, Becks, Warsteiner, Big Sky Brewery Summer Ale, Highlands Hollow Spoon Tongue, and Tablerock Woodpecker Light. Of course when enjoying any of the above, it should be as cold as possible. :D

I've ridden a handful of great mini-epics over the years with Formica from up north! See you in about 10 days, Mrs. Adventure! You know how it is. We locals forget that the whole world doesn't revolve around Boise....

BelaySlave aka Nick

Live behind the Zion Curtain aka Caldwell, but work in Downtown Boise.

32 now, turn 33 in September.

My NEW bike is a Yeti 575 (YAY!!!). My other rides include a road bike, hardtail, and SS.

I've ridden with CBro and Bombin4X. I've met smilycook, Earthpig, and lv2ride. I think I saw Irishbuddha one day in passing on Buck's.

Member of SWIMBA, but I haven't done any volunteer work for 'em this year nor attended any meetings.

Other outdoor pursuits: Hiking/backpacking, snowshoeing, XC skiing, camping. Former rockclimber that no longer wants to climb.

I have good endurance, just not enough power especially for climbs.

Odd fact about me as it relates to biking: The other day I unearthed my videotape which contained a show from Channel 7 (Exploring Idaho or Discovering Idaho or sumpin' like that) that was filmed in either 1995 or 1996. This particular episode focused on outdoor classes at BSU...kayaking, rockclimbing, and mountain biking. Well I was in a mountain biking class that semester and they used a couple of us in the shots. Good ol' Specialized Stumpjumper M2 with no suspension whatsover and me wearing bike shorts with a Barber-to-Boise tshirt tucked in. Good times! :D

This is from last year's Labor Day weekend trip at Buckhorn Bar...

Joe From Kalispell, MT

Howdy, I'm Joe Fisher
Live in Kalispell, Montana
I'm 48 years old/young.
I've been riding for a long time, mountain bikes about 10 years, road 30 years or so. I'm not really into jumping, dh, stuff like that. I just like to go to the woods and ride, climb, etc..

I only discovered this board a few days ago, I''ve not been riding as much the past few years as I used to. However, this should change with my new ride. :)

I just got a Rocky Mountain ETS-30 a few days ago. I"m in Missoula for a class (ends tomorrow) I rode the Rocky on a side trail up the Rattlesnake, I forget the name, but the trail was steep and covered with shale. That Rocky climbed like a scalded cat! At about the time my Kona would be slipping and losing traction, the Rocky just dug in and held on. The only reason I had to stop was cause the motor lost
power. ;-)

Bikes: Rocky Mountain ETSX-30 (first full boinger I"ve ever had)
Kona Hot with RS Mag 20 front fork.
