    Welcome to the madness. A few notes to help familiarize yourself with some of the other members.

    1. Don't ever let ShinKen set the pace on a ride. You will die
    2. CeeDub is a sandbagger, don't make any "friendly bets" with him before a ride.
    3. LBMTB commonly tells people to "Stay thirsty, my friends." He means beer.
    4. You get five points if you can guess what brand of bikes the following people ride: TurnerRob, ChumbaJason, TitusChick, TurnerWhore
    5. When FoShizzle says "You're Ghey", just take it as a compliment.
    6. OMR is the oldest mountain biker in the world. He is also faster than you or me.
    7. Report to CC for "kickstand inspection" at the first ride you attend.
    8. Report to SheClimbs after you get your kickstand inspection, for a "rearend and final drive inspection". Pray she doesn't give you "the shocker"
    9. STR is way better than MTBR or Ridemonkey
    10. Support JensonUSA and Pacific Bicycle Repair since they provide financial support for STR
    11. Don't be stingy with the "thanks" button, it is free to use
    12. No matter what your personal feelings or exeriences are, don't ever tell Dino Brown that Iron Horse bikes suck.
    13. Don't ever challenge Guero to a drinking competition, you will lose.
    14. FiredYoMomma, however, is a lightweight. I've seen girl scouts and Mormans drink him under the table.
    15. Don't ever expect Integradriv3r to wake up in time for a ride, you will be waiting for a long time.
    16. The only reason why Ladd Jasper is so nice is because he pitys the slow
    17. Don't try to have more posts than TKblazer or Gooseaholic. It is impossible.
    18. If I am ever on a ride with you, expect to hear a lot of cursing followed by crashing noises. Call 911 when this happens.
    19. 2WheelLee and Hoosierdaddy can do one-handed wheelies up hills you or I would walk up. You will learn to hate them as much as I do.
    20. AndyakaRut and genusmtbkr5 are the official STR ambassadors to every bike race available.
    21. If you can catch Sauce, you get to kiss her. (Don't bother trying)
    22. *Fill in the blank: I don't always drink beer, but when I do I drink _____________.*
    23. *If I can see the coins in your pocket, you had better use them to call a tailor.*
    24. 53,482: The number of bikes Rob will have to work on to pay off his bike parts and hot wing debts
    25: 15.31: Number of seconds, on average, that a post by GabrielZink stays on the forum before it is deleted
    26: JordansRealm has a better job than you, or me, or anyone that doesn't work at the playboy mansion.
    27: LetyRides does roller derby. She is tougher than you.
    28: Don't compare tattoos with JSims or QueenWilhemina. You will lose.
    29: ~Pakiha~ was once the owner of the largest bruise in the history of man.
    30. PainFreak thinks his moustache make him look manly.
    31. Don't talk to Gurp13 about dogs.
    32. For that matter, don't talk to Shudder about chopped Harley-Davidsons either
    33. Dstepper makes the tough choices look easy: "Hmm I broke my Turner 5-spot frame, so should I get another 5-spot frame, a Turner RFX or a Niner RIP9? Eh, I'll get all of them and sort it out later."
    34. Avoid hucking contests with CalEpic
    35. Report all Steven Jackson sightings immediately. You'll know him when you see him
    36. Mechmann and Allison don't really have jobs, all they do is go on bike trips
    37. Carbonman and Shugamama ride the same trails as everyone else. But they do it on a tandem, pulling a trailer (seriously)
    38. If you use words like cheers, bloody good, smashing, footy, tuppence, wot wot, guv'nor, or have ever said "God save the Queen" and meant it, then you will get along great with KeithB, Lefty Kev and Lazy Brit
    39. Yes, I do love my bikes as much as my wife and daughter.
    40. 1x1Clyde aka "The Total Package" is faster than he looks. A lot faster. He broke a Lynsky Titanium mountain bike frame. On the fully loop. Yeah.
    41. Jackieo gives new meaning to the term "starved for attention"
    42. PacMan has been seen recently racing around on his bike, eating dots and running from ghosts
    43. You may know TurnerRob by his Indian name: Rides with Wrenches
    44. When One_leg_rolled_up gets done with a ride in his reeboks and jeans, there is usually a bunch of pissed off riders on bikes that cost 4x as much as his that got dropped somewhere
    45. Kid A excels at ignoring the doctor's orders
    46. Being a broken member does not mean you need Viagra.
    47. There is no sex in the champagne room. None
    48. Bighit8 was USMC artillery. So just keep repeating "Can you hear me now" to him until you get a response.
    49. I hate Foo. So will you.

    Most importantly: No one gets left behind. Ever.

    *Stolen from "The most interesting man in the world" but very true

    Very cool!!!

    BTW, Chris-
    I like the new avatar- where did you find that??? We're trying to get Adam a t-shirt with that saying since he's just starting to walk. We've not seen anything that combines it with the cycling theme. 8)8)8)

    Thanks for the welcome, even if it wasn't just for me. I was riding Aliso last weekend with a buddy and he ran into some guys with STR jerseys and they all turned me on to this site. And even though nobody would shut up about my Vermin rear tire (YES, I get all the grip I need!), they seemed like good guys and made me want to check the site out.

    I'm a teacher enjoying the last precious weeks of summer and have been riding every day. I live a stone's throw from the Fully Loop and ride that at least 2-3 times a week. I also like to get out to Carbon Canyon (for some reason ya'll call it Chino Hills), Whiting & did Aliso last weekend for the first time.

    I tell ya, if Mathis were about 4x longer with no downhill (honestly, can Meadows have any more switchbacks!?!), I'd be in heaven. Give me a long, steep climb and I'm just peachy. I'll save the downhills for the show-offs with something to prove ;-) Still, I have to admit that Rock-it was fun & I love the Live Oaks single track at Whiting. But, I'll still take a climb over a descent any day.

    Anyway, look forward to meeting some of ya'll soon!

    -Dan
