Riding: 2014 Yeti SB-75 & Chumba HX-1
I rode BMX growing up and learned my way around a bike hanging out @ the LBS anytime i wasn't in school. I did some occasional BMX regional racing, but spent most of of the time riding dirt/jump tracks and vert ramps. I picked up my first HT (Diamondback Assent EX, still have the frame set up as a single-speed) in 89-90 and rode HT rigs up until 2013 when I bought my Yeti.
I prefer fast and flowy to grinding out climbs, but like variety. I definitely have an appreciation for technical sections and features, like the stuff in the newly re-designed Black Loop @ FH - challenging, but very fun!
I'm usually solo, so if any of y'all see me on the trail, please say hi!

Name: Roger Location: Germantown Current Ride: In the market, Looking at a 2013 GT Zaskar Sport (I'm open to your thoughts on that), cant afford a full suspension yet. Trails Likely to See Me: Just found the Shaeffer Farm Trails, but hoping to branch out and meet some guys and girls. Ride with: I ride alone down here cause i haven't met anyone yet other then guys I work with. My Story: I just moved down here less then a year ago to take a FF job with the county. My wife lives in NY for at least another year in nursing school. Started Mtn biking in NY years ago, but was never really up and current on the technology and lingo. Did a lot of trail riding there and looking for the same stuff here. I work 9 days a month so I'm always down to go riding. Hit me up.

My Story: Been in the area for 15 years and just got back into mtb'ing after a 20 year haitus. Used to ride the fast fire trails of East Bay of Northern California. Still learning about 29ers, tubless tires, and all the new stuff. Can't get used to the fact that my '98 SJ is a "vintage" bike. Lol!

Riding: 2015 GT Sensor Comp, 27.5
Rode a lot during my college years. Rode one of the early Diamondback MTBs that I got for my birthday in 1985. The bike still runs, but my younger brother took it from me when he moved to Dallas, Texas. I still want the bike back.
Got back into riding this spring when I taught two of my four boys to ride. The 9 year old learned to ride in the Spring and now races around the neighborhood on his GT Aggressor 24. The oldest, 14, also got the riding bug when he got a GT Backwoods Comp MTB for his birthday. My 6 year old is learning to ride on a TRU BMX bike. (I will get him a 20" mountain bike when he gets tall enough.). I got myself the GT Sensor Comp to ride with them.

Riding: 2015 Kona Mahuna 29er Hardtail, Green & Black
