I miss the trails in NC. Bent Creek, Turkey Pen were my favorite places.

Very cool ride. Nice to see something so old school that is in good condition.

Bent Creek is where I ride the most, just for convenience factor. North Mills where Laurel Mountain (in the above pics) is where I adventure to if I have more time. Kitzuma, outside of Black Mountain is another favorite, but I haven't done it in a few years. I really wish I could quit my job and just ride, so much around that I have yet to explore. My son is now really getting into it, so I think that will enable me to broaden my horizons a bit.

E.J. it is a Burki, which I'm sure you have not heard of. My friend and co-worker, who never had aspirations of being a pro frame builder, built a few frames for himself, traded one to someone for a motorcycle, and after a bit of arm twisting, built one for me. He was room mates with the Sycip bros and Curtis from Retrotec when they were in SF. True Temper OX and Henry James lugs and drop outs.

I built it to be the last bike I would ever have to buy. For the most part it's original Phil Wood hubs and BB, Chris King head set, Sun Tour XC Pro cranks and front derr. It has been through some rims, drive trains (I just "upgraded" to 9sp ), as I've gotten older the cockpit has gotten shorter and more up right, the Marzocchi Z1CR replaced a Judy DH some 10 years ago, and my Hershey cantis got replaced with XTR V-brakes about the same time. The frame is on it's second drive side drop out, and I won't talk about rear derrs.

Good stuff Carl, good stuff. Alway's nice to get out into the forest to areas where you don't run into the noise of vehicles. Just you, your ride, and the big woods to talk to.

Yup, thats what I'm talkin' about.

Hopefully I'll be out there today with my son, but looking like big rain might be coming our way.

I've only seen one bear while out riding, he just ran in front of me and kept on going. Encountered a few deer, snakes, and one box tortoise that I think I have moved off the trail four or five times over the course of years.
