    dirt bike

  • trail bike: a lightweight motorcycle equipped with rugged tires and suspension; an off-road motorcycle designed for riding cross country or over unpaved ground

  • n. an off-road motorcycle. Usually louder than MTBs.

  • There are many systems for classifying types of motorcycles, describing how the motorcycles are put to use, or the designer's intent, or some combination of the two. Six main categories are widely recognized: cruiser, sport, touring, standard, dual-purpose, and dirt bike.





    gear
  • A particular function or state of adjustment of engaged gears

  • Equipment that is used for a particular purpose

  • One of a set of toothed wheels that work together to alter the relation between the speed of a driving mechanism (such as the engine of a vehicle or the crank of a bicycle) and the speed of the driven parts (the wheels)

  • a toothed wheel that engages another toothed mechanism in order to change the speed or direction of transmitted motion

  • set the level or character of; "She pitched her speech to the teenagers in the audience"

  • gearing: wheelwork consisting of a connected set of rotating gears by which force is transmitted or motion or torque is changed; "the fool got his tie caught in the geartrain"





    sets
  • A group of people with common interests or occupations or of similar social status

  • A collection of implements, containers, or other objects customarily used together for a specific purpose

  • (set) a group of things of the same kind that belong together and are so used; "a set of books"; "a set of golf clubs"; "a set of teeth"

  • (set) put: put into a certain place or abstract location; "Put your things here"; "Set the tray down"; "Set the dogs on the scent of the missing children"; "Place emphasis on a certain point"

  • (set) fit(p): (usually followed by `to' or `for') on the point of or strongly disposed; "in no fit state to continue"; "fit to drop"; "laughing fit to burst"; "she was fit to scream"; "primed for a fight"; "we are set to go at any time"

My New Pugsley - First Ride




My New Pugsley - First Ride





Been working on this bike for awhile, and finally found time to finish it yesterday. Today I took it out on it's first ride. Funny thing happened. I got a block from my house and felt something strange in the left pedal: a wobble. So I stopped to check it out and noticed that the threads of the crank arm were stripped out. I turned around and headed back home, dejected. But I was able to swap the left arm out with another I had in the garage, and within 20 minutes I was rolling again.
The pictures you see were taken at Katherine Abbot park, which is about two miles from my house. It's not a large park but there are several trails through mostly wooded hills, so it makes for a good out and back ride from the house. I usually ride here with my 7 year old son, since he doesn't have the skills or endurance to ride harder trails, and it's easy to ride here and back with him.
The trails were great. As long as I stayed on the hard pack established by hikers (dog walkers) I could roll really fast. Once I slipped off the narrow sections into the powder I would usually come to a halt. Also, climbing is harder than on dirt because of loss of traction. It helps to spin, but I have a 42T chainring on the front and no granny gear so spinning wasn't an option in many cases. I'm planning to add at least a double ring set up soon, but wanted to get on the bike asap so I sacrificed this for now.
I'm planning to ride tomorrow and also New Year's Day, so stay tuned for more pictures.











Preparing to Enter Cold Springs in Santa Barbara




Preparing to Enter Cold Springs in Santa Barbara





The calm before the storm. We have just parked the car a couple miles up the road for a shuttle down Cold Springs. A little road riding and some big dirt burms to feel the bike out and make sure everything is good for the trail, and here is a picture of me as I am about to enter the trail. It is pretty crazy how much gear we wear these days. Not sure if that means we are smarter, or just older, but nevertheless it sure is nice to crash and just get up unscathed. I have my bike set up a little more XC here with smaller/lighter pedals and some 2.25 tires, so keeping up with my friends rigs that are running full DH tires is a little more difficult. I think my next run I am going to revert my bike to DH. The weight saving is not worth the control loss. At any rate this trail is amazing, and has high speed and technical parts, with some jumps. All and all one of the best out there. So if you ever get the chance look it up in SB. But as always use a bell and be kind to the Hikers, as they are the ones with all the money who are trying to shut the trails down to MTBing.
