Cool, glad to see some familiar screen names. Thanks for getting the band back together. I still check in here from time to time. Same is true for my mountainboard sessions (from time to time). I'm feeling motivated now by the recent forum surge.

I hope that you are able to convince Snowshoe to open their minds and bike park terrain to mountainboarding. I'm local and have poached a few rides at Snowshoe (Powerline trail is epic), there is a lot of bike traffic and their freeride trails are excellent, but there's also plenty of space to sprea...

one-wheeled electric board

http://www.rideonewheel.com
Lot's of media-hype/news about this board since the recent CES events. I'm intrigued by this board and the other electric board options that are being brought to the public these days.

NoSno Rich right? Cool that you are stateside again. Not much organized riding in the East these days, at least not anything like the events that ECMountainboarding and Justin R. were putting on back in 2003-04. I'm not really into social media so I'm likely missing plenty. Thanks Jimmy for the head...

Loveland Pass, CO Avalanche

I've been following the sad news out of Colorado that an avalanche took the young lives of several who were riding near Loveland Pass last week. The story caught my attention because I rode the bowls at Loveland Pass in February and had an epic day of POW. The news of this tragedy gave me a creepy f...

Buggley, the Atom 80x has 7 inch wheels and no brake disc are required-the brake pad hits the hub directly to create a slowing effect, but no real stopping power. You could try the 7 inch wheels on the back of your board with 8 or 9s up front for to gain the benefit of slowing down to ride a tricky ...

I've got a Freebord, slides are fun and you can get creative with 'em. I never rode mine enough to improve my skills or burn through a set of wheels. Mine's gathering dust. Mountainboarding is sooo much better for me. Anyone wanna buy a Freebord in great condition? (couple years old, S2 bindings, ma...

Blair Weaver, the author, is a super-nice guy who was at one time the proprietor of G-boards. Thanks McCarver, cool blast from the past. I'd long forgotten about this ORB article and a few of the names in it.

Sad to hear. Glad that I was able to enjoy a great Fall day riding it one final time. Buggley, I guess that's Karma for the mean-old ramp that set you down rough.

Cool that BG and Jimmy are in, maybe Pigryder too. Buggley, let's get that ramp in the mix on Saturday too! I'm only an hour's drive away so I'm planning to roll in Sat. morning, but knowing now that there is some camping activity happening Friday night I may try to clear that with the boss. BG/Jimm...

Buggley has nice places to ride. WV has so many mountains with slope that is just right. I read somewhere that Sutton, WV is the geographic center of WV and just a day's drive from 60% of the U.S. population. Hope some of you have a chance to visit!

I just added GI Spring trucks to an older model MBS Core 90. I had to make the holes a slightly larger to accomodate the spring tension bolts, aside from that these components from the two brands merged well. I've ridden GI Cube-style, MBS Skate-style and MBS Channel trucks, but totally prefer the G...

Chaos, Cedar Ledge is excellent, I've been there many times and would like to visit again. I've got a long trip planned for this weekend and likely won't be in a position to burn up the roads again next weekend. What about Wisp resort in Deep Creek, MD later in the month...anyone up for that?

I suggest Law School hill somewhat tongue-in-cheek as it is the place where Mountaineers are made...football players for WVU that is. There is much better terrain in many, many areas throughout WV and better places in Morgantown too. AJ Lawson would be a good person to show us some good riding Morga...
