Rode Camel Run as a loop again yesterday with a few other riders. Though technically a beginner route, it is...

Interesting photo of true singletrack in a cool forest.
I can't believe IMBA would talk about burning bridges. Their double cross / stab in the back of the STC through their statement in May and then the one in July is the ULTIMATE burning of a bridge. Submitting legislation to rectify how an act is being applied is hardly a burning of a bridge…
In response to your first comment (paragraph) I guess you and I mountain bike for very different reasons. That's fine.
Great write up John. Your comments on Point #4 are spot on. I especially enjoyed your comments on the burning of bridges and jeopardizing the great work of mtb advocates. You are so right. Who really burned the bridges? And I would hardly call the advocacy work of IMBA great. Their failed record speaks for…

commented on 10 Best Mountain Bike Shorts for 2016
 
Great timing for this article for me personally. Thanks Jeff. I've been holding out buying a pair bike specific shorts since I started riding in earnest a few years ago. But I'm ready to take the plunge and fork down the bucks ... prices are a bit crazy. The Endura Hummvee and Zoic Ether look…
Michael, is there anything substantially new and different with the 2016 model from previous years? Maybe I missed something, but it seems these are basically the same as previous year models.

Wow, so many nice photos from the Grand Traverse. Looks like an awesome route.
Wow, great article Maureen, and kudos to all who are investing in NICA and investing in the kids' participation directly. IMO, there is no greater reward in life than investing in kids.

Lightweight. Nice looking. Low profile.
 
Thanks stumpy.
 
Hey can anyone recommend some good degreasers? Especially any common household suggestions? Living in Mongolia I don't have any bike specific products like this available. And you can't carry that kind of stuff with you from the US under the plane. There are car products here; could those be too strong? And I know you…
 
Thanks for the good reminders Chris.
 
For Mongolia (extremely dusty and dry most of the time) I have come to prefer Squirt! like Greg. And during the couple of short times of year when it can be wet, I just apply it more often. It is much more convenient than switching to a wet lube.
Just listen to us ... a bunch of guys sittin' at their computers talking about washing clothes. Who would of thought. = ) Having raised three very active boys with my wife, I can only add one piece of advice to what Colton and JR have said. This advice goes to the teenage boys (young…

Don't mess with singlespeeders with mustaches ... ... especially those in green glasses. LOL. Heck, I won't mess with any...
Wow, Greg, hard to argue against your rationale. But hey, we allow terrorist of terrible kind to roam free in our country today, so "what the hey". We are dealing with a general problem much larger than our mountain biking issue. We are dealing with a degradation of our society and subsequent lawlessness that comes…
In certain circumstances this should be considered imo. The case could be made for this agreed.
Martin, I cannot leave your post left unresponded to. There is some excellent thought. However there is also some incomplete thinking which is common today inour society today and leading us towards a lawless society. I concur that jail time alone isn't likely to rehabilitate. Some intentional programming in that direction is most certainly needed.…

Several concerns listed above, but you've hit the nail on the head Ironhead. Wow, for that money you could get a high end four season tent and do anything from car camp to K2. Has anyone mentioned how much more difficult it would be to go the bathroom at night. lol. It's like a bunk…
