Has the mbm board basically died? It used to be pretty cool. I never was entirely sure of the "intent" of the board though.
I love biking, need to get back into it, also with the way the world has gone, a "mountain bike militia" may not be as far fetched an idea as one would think. You can move a heck of a lot faster and further on a bike then in a car. I need to learn more about bike repair, etc. and get back into biking.
