Easton Elite mountain bike frame
My year 1999 Viper F-40 Easton Elite MTB frame, which I bought from new way back in March 2000 from Woollyhatshop mail order page, as advertised in the MBUK magazines (Mountain Biking UK) of the period. I lusted for this frame back in the late 1990's because it was so light, looked well-engineered and was finished in a cool unpainted satin brush. It's been in the wars over the years, largely due to the seizing-up of contact parts. Now repaired, It involved a tedious and laborious 2hrs sawing & drilling out the seized crank and bottom bracket, as well as smoothing down the suspect bottom bracket thread with a jewellers file. With the new 'outer bearing' style bottom bracket cups it's perfectly fine, this is due to them not needing to be threaded as deep into the bottom bracket shell where the suspect thread is (the older style cartridge bottom brackets were irrefutably stiff during the last 1/4 turns). It was a prestige frame back in it's day, costing ?189.00 and getting a 5/5 star rating in the MBUK magazine test, August 2001. Note there is no tab for a disc brake and it's intended for 80mm travel forks - this is showing it's age! Details: Frame: Viper F-40 Easton Elite 3 main tubes with aircraft grade 7005 rear triangle, unique CNC yoke, rear snakestay-style seatstays (i.e. wavy shaped), hooded dropouts with replaceable gear hanger. Weight: 1618g.
Klamath Falls Mountain Bike Trails - 911
Ringo posing atop the highest point of a very steep trail called 911. There is a crucifix here, that appears to have been vandalized and repaired, and the ziplock bag seen in some of the photos contains some xeroxed notes and a copy of the New Testament and Psalms (I looked). Klamath Falls has some very nice mountain bike trails. I have been riding them since 1988 when I bought my first mountain bike. Most of the trails in these photos are on public land but most of the trails are on private property and the mountain bikers have had full access for two decades. Regrettably many of the trails are now the sites of land development, including some gated communities. Every time I ride or trail run up here, which is nearly every day, I see some new development. I am not complaining - it has been private land all these years and I am glad for the many years of terrific riding we have had. Who wouldn't want to live here? It is a wonderful place.
