For YouTube:
Sam Pilgrim -- he does a lot of crazy stuff that really captures the idea of having fun doing sketchy stuff on a bike as a kid

Seth's Bike Hacks -- it's been interesting to watch his progression over the last few years from goofing around with bikes to going full time with his channel and buying a house where he's working on trails and features

Syd & Macky -- husband & wife duo who race & try to capture what the experience is like
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCu3Wc2 ... mX7N0EO5NQ

Backyard Trail Builds -- younger guy who started building features on his property

The Duke of MTB -- another husband & wife duo, but they're local

For Reddit:
https://www.reddit.com/r/MTB/ -- most active community
https://www.reddit.com/r/mountainbiking/ -- more recent creation, mostly popped up because /r/MTB rules don't allow for people to just post static "new bike day" photos
https://www.reddit.com/r/bikewrench/ -- not specifically MTB related, but I like it for learning new things & being able to help others with what I know

I do frequent MTBR "Families & Riding with Kids" forum, but most the other forums there seem better suited for Q&A on specific topics.
Hey thx for posting those links ...

Time flys.
and I can't even remember the name of MMBS's publication!

When I had a 6 transistor radio D i c k Tracy had a wrist wartch with a Phone built in. Fiction is now reality.
You can now race someone 1/2 around the world and never leave your basement. ( or that girl in the appatment across from you , as seen on a TV add)
What is next?
I mean what is next!


( oh - speaking of dirt, does Dirt still follow this web site - I miss his wisdom! )

It was something like the "Bent Rim Bugle" I want to say. I probably still have a stack around here somewhere. As for Dirt, he is on the SE MI trail conditions FB page from time to time. This place is a ghost town and far from what it was back in the day.
