Since I already posted a trail report over on the CT NEMBA blog, this post is more of an over flow of pictures that didn't make that posting.

|Salem's new Commuter Bike|
I was actually interested in this bike, saw it on Craigslist a few weeks back and thought that it would make a good Monster Crosser. The unfortunate thing, however, was that it was too small for me. Still, I would not hesitate to buy a similar but larger bike on this nature because it would be the perfect rail trail bike. Just add some Salsa Wood chippers and barcons!
Towards the end of the ride we rode up to Little Falls and there were even a few attempts to try and ride up the blue trail but none were successful. It's just too steep. Someone said, "You might be able to make it on a 29er." Yeah, with a 11x36 cassette and Granny to lend a helping hand.
