I also had to ask one guy 3 times for a pass before he responded, but I wonder if he was not hearing me. I rarely have any issues. Most folks make space right away when they hear my loud hubs or I have to ask only once.

MOST of the time if not every time people move out of the way when something is said... *beep* sometimes you dont have to say anything and the person moves for you. I think yesterday was just an anomaly... also maybe the whole 275 construction is putting a chip on my shoulder...

I might have better luck at 225lbs and 6'3 on a fatty - it's gotta look like a Mack truck to a 150lb'er on their epic.

I have a Air-Zound, air horn, the bell just didn't speak everyones language, (Air-Zound speaks all languages) it even get through to people with earbuds in, I rung a bell a few times behind a runner with buds in at Poto, no responce, ""ON YOUR LEFT", he turned left putting me in the woods, I bought the Air-Zound, problem solved. I give a short blast to warn, and a long blast is almost never needed. Hikers believe it or not thank me, many times.
Going for a timed lap when there are a lot of people out on any trail is asking for trouble, weekdays, or early morning is best.

I once had a guy at Poto keep checking his phone as I rang my bell. It was pretty amusing. It took three double-ding sets before he finally looked behind him and saw me about 20' back waving hi.

Also... what a good lap time at the trail now with the first area being changed?

A good lap time is dependent on the rider....Fast laps for me is low 30's. For others it's in the 27's!!!

I'd login and look at "This Year" since the trail has changed and is now a little longer. You don't need to pay to create a login to see that.
