All in all, this is an interesting move in the market place, for sure. I am an REI member, but not for bike products. Personally, I have always thought REI's line of mtb and mtb products were not very high end or extensive, so this move really ups REI's game. Honestly, on the LBS side…

Not my favorite ride simply because there is no real loop here and not a ton of singletrack, but there...

Thanks to the entire team for making Singletracks such a great community.
 
First and foremost ... ... Fit. Fit. Fit. It so important. Learn about fit before buying and even take a prospective bike to a LBS before buying it to make sure it is a good fit for you. Get the advice of an expert. Second, the mountain bike market has gotten so complicated, that I…

Put a trail dog in the photo and it almost invariably makes it a five star photo.

WOW ! ! ! Beautiful forest with beautiful overlooks. The trails are a mix of ST and two tracks and...
Reply to Luke. Of course mountain bikers don't HAVE to wear baggy shorts as you have overstated. But in terms of heat baggy shorts can be cool too of course. I understand the role of lycra: aerodynamic, no rub, moves well with the body, can be cool, etc. And that's all fine on the street…
Hey Bob. Great thoughts. I do many of the same things except the ice pack. That's a really good idea. I'm going to have to give that a try. Thanks.

Waaaaay too funny podcast. I'm not sure it promotes the Trans-North Georgia route very well, and it certainly doesn't promote Alabama culture. =) After a while, it was just one laugh after another. Great story.

You know Singletracks puts up a whole bunch of awesome material to read and watch, but it's these kinds of articles that I like the best. It's so cool to get insight into others, their personal lives and what mountain biking means to them personally. I remember one of my favorite article/series was John Fisch's…
Flat out awesome article Helena. And thanks for being so transparent and even vulnerable. And good for you for finding out what works for you. I must confess that I am "guilty as charged" when it comes to planning much of my life around mountain biking. But then again, I have never felt much guilt…

Rode here for the second time a couple of weekends ago. Both times we started from Selbe Camp on the...
