    Hey Ben, I'ts been a while. We exchanged messages a few times. You made a knoby tire recommendation for my 24 incher that I purchased and rode once in 9 inches of snow last winter.
    Just saw your thread about the ride at Douthat Park. I would like to attend, but I am not sure I can free up the time. If I can join you for half a day, which half day do you think would be best?
    Also, I see the event has a MUNI theme. I haven't riden any MUNI. I have a 36 inch Impulse (that I have put 1300 miles on in the last year and a half) and I have a 24 inch "el-cheapo" with a knoby tire. Do you think there will be much opportunity for 36" riding? I'd be willing to try some MUNI with my 24 inch, but probably not up to hard core MUNI.
    I think it would be a neat opportunity to get to ride a bunch of different unicycles.
    Look forward to your reply,
    Jeff Arnold

    Hi,

    I've found your post on the "29er tire reviews" thread where you are listing tires you want to sell. Do you still have some left ? What is the usual shipping cost ?

    Thanks in advance for your time

    Regards,
    Sid

    Ben... taking your invite to ride eastern TN/western NC offline. The muni I posted is the first muni I ever owned. I still haven't taken it off the road, except for maybe a couple of fields and a washed out patch of sand/grass between two parking lots. I intend to test out some trails local to the Charlotte area... we have tons of trails that vary in skill level. At least according to the local forums.

    I see you are very active in these forums and are probably expert level. Someone at my level would probably try your patience rather than your endurance. Having learned at 53 to ride, and am now pushing 55, I consider myself a slow but careful learner.

    Perhaps I can take a rain check this fall or so...

    I wish I could get away for your May event in TN but the month of May is slammed with family and work commitments. I'm sure that kind of event is geared towards people at all skill levels and would be a big growth opportunity.

    Unfortunately no, I've got a family reunion that was planned by my wife long before we knew that I'd try to take up unicycling again, so I'd be in all sorts of trouble if I tried to skip out.

    I'll definitely have it on the calendar for next year though.

    For sure, I'll bring all my toys and hopefully my 15yo son.

    Hey Ben:

    Yes I am. I wanted to go last year but I was just starting to ride muni at that time and felt that I wouldn't be able to ride anything but double track. I'm looking forward to meeting you (you are going too, right?) and other unicyclist and learning a lot.

    Hey Ben,

    I hope you're recovering well. I can barely walk today! Do you know how to get in touch with the others from BBR? I'd like to add Chris and Dave to my friends but can't figure out how.
