    negra you must be crazy.

    Best riders...FTC: graham, robbie, cole, andrew
    Boulder: kevin, ??? who else still rides thar?
    Denver: :dunno:
    Co springs: mike

    Each place has another 5-10 people who aren't "best" riders but are good guys to ride with of course. I probably forgot about people so sorry.


    Teams? :ugh: Not that organized, the ftc crew rides/drinks/lifts like a real team. Good comrodareeee

    FTC is a small town, very nice...college night life very relaxed, cheap drinking, tons of natural and enough urban to keep you busy

    Boulder is a bit larger, more hills, more hippies...busy place, more expensive.

    denver is the biggest, lots of stuff...fantastic night life... not the best riding for natural, plenty of ghetto urban (you would like it).

    co springs is a shithole.


    Kevin helps alot with everything, everyone is willing to help out. Me and kev both make movies a lot (when we aren't busy). The comp scene is heading more towards laid back area. It used to be all at ski resorts, piggy backing norba. Now its more like a group ride, we do have some serious comps though.

    Group rides can be had at any time you want, each town has people to challenge you mike...group ride turnout has been lower than in the past, but it is winter....we still have random rides of 5-10 people every now and then but most people are super busy.


    Shops? meh...I don't go to any, robbie in ftc works at a shop and can get hook ups of some sort. Kevin has hook ups in denver shop. Graham rocks the house with anything you need, and he is in FTC...he = faction bike- always try to support him.


    People want vince to come back, maybe other french riders...nothing certain atm...

    hope that helps

    Your a shithole, Co springs has the best natural riding but the urban is kinda shitty.

    I think we have more cops per rider than anywhere else.
    Co springs scene =me and josh carr= dead but the two of us still ride alot.

    Why do you ask?

    I'd say andrew pretty much covered it, but I'd also mention "The Fix" bike shop in north boulder... they cater to trials riders more than any other shop in Boulder.

    What about Georgetown? I hear there's a future world champion there.

    Anyone I've ever met in colorado says co springs is the worst city. It took me a few trips to agree. IMO trashy, crappy culturally..

    don't forget the little corn fed mountain boys on the mods who were at Gunnison. I'm sure they'll crush me this year. And then there is Ryder, Tom, and Trialscoach USA in Durango. Team Ripstokers--the only demo team in the state as far as I know... all top level riders.

    and yes, riding in Denver blows ass, but at least it's a short drive to Golden, the springs, Boulder, etc... And as Andrew said, it can be fun in other ways, besides bicycles...
