what chillindrdude said. Plattekill and MCBP are worthy of a few days' trip. You could easily make up a week of riding if you brought a trail bike along too.

East Bound and Down: Brevard Calling
Oneonta is a great town of about 10,000 people, 3 hours from Manhattan on the northwest foothills of the Catskill Mountains. 40 miles of trails surrounding downtown, excellent coffee shops, restaurants, and LBS. Just over the hill from the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame and Brewery Ommegang. Once everything thaws out it is a killer place to spend a weekend, to which Brice here can attest. Feel free to shoot me a PM for more info and some local contacts.

yep. I just moved to Berkeley from Central NY. I miss my 8,000 person town with 40 miles of trails surrounding it....not to mention the endless scenic road riding to be had.

Specialized Go 650B
Mugen, resurrecting the Pitch makes zero sense. It was a redundant option for low- to mid- range trail bikes. Additionally, why would you give the same bike a different name just because it has different wheel size? We're not all Santa Cruz hippies here.....

Damnit, George! Every bit of news about the ESC makes me wish I was back in Central New York this summer!

Learn More About Your Local Bike Shop
for all the people saying there are no good bike shops around, that all the local shops suck, etc. How long have those shops been around? what other sorts of customers are there? what do they have in stock? what is their mission. focus, target market, etc? How long have they been in business? You don't make it in business by sucking. Nor do you make it by being full of bro-staff who will just shoot the breeze about bikes all day. You make it by knowing your market, maximizing where you can and minimizing where you have to, sharing your enthusiasm and trying not to go insane in the process. Most shops who don't cater to a certain crowd because catering to that crowd would be throwing away money. Sure the LBS isn't the shop that you wish for, but it exists. And that's more than can be said for the ones who bro'd out and went bankrupt.
