added a review of Lost Valley
 

That is known as freeze / thaw conditions. Next time be sure to get off the trail before the thaw...
First off, I have to say this is a terrible situation for everyone involved and I hope I'm never in a similar position. Still, it's a little hard to understand that this is the best way to handle things. http://www.theprovince.com/health/sues+parents+over+2010+moutain+bike+accident+that+left+wheelchair+protect+them/11714067/story.html Basically the guy (Landon McGauley) was very seriously injured during an MTB race at a resort when he was 15…

replied to Chain advice
 
If the chain is beyond .75% you'll probably need to get a new cassette. But don't do it right away--I say throw the new chain on, take the bike for a spin, and see if you're getting any "ghost shifting." (Ghost shifting is basically when your chain jumps on the cassette without clicking the shifter.)…

asked a question about Cannondale Trail 7
 
How much does this bike weigh?
Um yeah, riiiight... This isn't a criminal case or anything but if they didn't take the bike directly from the girl at the finish, it's kinda open to a stupid explanation like this. Didn't she have a mechanical out on the course or something? Who knows how long it was before they asked to see the bike.…
