I had visions like most would of mountain bike trails located in Manhattan just off the Harlem River—stairs, broken-up concrete, glass, traffic, hobos, drug-dealers, smog, abandoned buildings, graffiti, bridges, tunnels and sidewalks. I didn't realize how on point my visions would be though! But, to my surprise, there were also super technical rock gardens, greasy off-camber roots, crazy flowy singletrack, insanely steep downhills, awesome rock formations, and even a cyclocross-inspired stair run-up;" said Gary Fisher 29er Crew racer Jim Vreeland.

Damn Jim, I knew you could ride but that quote is also quite impressive. I'm surprised you were able to construct such a meaningful sentence. Our conversations usually include some type of grunting or cursing. Good Job. :p

I got to ride with the famous guy tonight & he even talked to me. He wouldn't pose for pics or sign autographs though.

I'm sorry to say I am no longer a 1x9'er, I had to put the big ring back on for Fair Hills and for the upcoming Darkhorse 40, but fear not, the 1x9 will return!!

-Jim.

Bah! 2x9 is no way to go through life.

I'm staying 1x9 for the 40 (solo). Never done 40 miles before but I think I'll be OK.
