no, not just for street riders, but you passed judgment on the community here, so I gave you a link to a more off road centered forum.
you said this forum is used by fixie and SSers. you said you were looking for trail riders, I linked you to the most dense internet gathering of them in the area. I did what i thought would get you along on your search faster.
jesus christ to you and Blue Baron both.
why don't you join the trail rider group here on the chainlink?
I answered a question with a sufficient amount of words to get my point across so as to not force anyone to assume incorrectly what I meant. As for the last part, I had edited that out as I myself found it to be tasteless, my apologies that you had to see it.
fair honest questions, with fair honest answers, i don't see the problem. If there were a forum out there with no "fixie riding hipster assholes" on it, you would want me to point it out to you too.
So this group is just for street riders?

sorry, the "fixie forum" comment was in no way directed at you. you would have to read other threads to get the reference. I didn't think you were passing a pretentious judgement. It just made sense that if you noticed a trend of street riders here, that if you were looking for offroaders, i would share that site. any hostility you may have sensed stemmed from unrelated occurrences. i do not think you are a hater. my apologies.
I ride off road, that is my love. I use the cambr.org site a lot, as well as mtbr.com.
I just happen to ride a fixie; for the last five years. i broke my leg on a jump and wanted something to ride after/during rehab ( i was kinda scared of jumping again, so i traded for speed, and to practice balance ). now it is my primary mode of transportation. That is my story.
but really, cambr is the best place to go if you do want info regarding chicago-land based offroading info or rides. they have many different levels of riding these days. and thanks to the expansion of the internet , a larger variety of riders are involved.
I just taco'ed my front wheel, but after Thanksgiving and I get it rebuilt, there is a whole season of winter riding ahead of us if you are ever interested.
