    Trek bikes was started as a way to blend our love for outdoor exploration with our love for making great bikes. Our bikes are inspired by the beauty and complexity of the outdoors. Experience the adventure that is Trek bikes.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. 😆 😆

    I wonder if that bottle of wine will fit in my bike cage? 😉

    in reply to: 12hr race on a 4 man team – when to switch? #88832

    Everybody is different, I guess I would see what everyone in your group wants to do and their style of riding. If it were me I would rather go for as many laps as I could all at once and be done. Like you said ride for three hours and be done for the day. For me the first lap would be at a decent pace (slow to some) and the other two would be pretty quick. For some reason it takes me a lap to get everything going before I really start cranking. If I go all out on the first lap I find myself getting burned out to quickly and not really flowing well with the course. Hope that makes sense.

    Good luck!!

    I may be riding too but not like that!! Not because I CANT but because we don’t have the jumps here….yeah, that’s it no jumps.

    I hear ya bro. My skills would put all those guys to shame, too bad my local trail only has a few small jumps. 😆

    I wasn’t planning on riding today. SEE YA!!!!!!!!! 😉

    in reply to: Bike choice #88233

    Love my Paragon, not to familiar with the Salsa. Looked at a Scott 29er, it seemed like a nice bike but was really heavy compared to my Fisher and I don’t know much about the brand.

    All I can say like some of the others on here is try to test them out and see which one fits you the best and go from there. In my opinion you can’t go wrong with the Fisher. Also if your really set on a 29er check out the one’s from Specialized. They have some killer 29er’s in their line up and if your local shops that carry Specialized are anything like the one in my area you can get a crazy deal right now. Good luck!

    Thanks for the input. I bought a brand new 2009 19" Specialized Myka Comp today for my wife. It was a little more than I wanted to spend for her first MTB but it was damn near 50% off so I ended up under budget with a much nicer bike than I thought I was going to end up with.

    I can’t wait to get her on it! I like it so much I think I will hit the trails with it before she even gets to sit on it. 😉

    Congrats on the new home and the big score! Looks as though Burchfield, Yankee Springs and Custer will be you new locals if they were not already.

    Thanks man. Our house is exactly two miles away on the same road as Burchfield! How stoked do you think I was when my wife said she found a house on the same road that she realy likes? 😉 I was like sure honey lets go look at it. No more loading up the bike for me unless I’m going to ride out of town.

    but no matter what theres never signs that the trail is closed.

    From what I have seen most trails will stay open rain or shine during the warmer months. It’s kind of like a code of ethics for you to not tear up the trails and ride them when they are muddy.

    I know it kind of sucks to wait all week to go hit a trail on the weekend for a nice long ride to only have it pour buckets the night before. I have had it happen plenty of times before and only ridden a muddy trail once. I will never do it again. Besides all the deep ruts I was leaving behind on the trail my bike was trashed, I was a walking mud ball from head to toe, and the inside of my car got trashed as well.

    The best thing to do is to wait for a nicer day to ride. If you just have to go ride that day do a road ride for the exercise or try to find some non paved back roads and you can get muddy that way without damaging the trails! 😉

    Great. I just bought a Fisher. 😈 Oh well, the only thing I can do is to continue to practice responsible mountain bike riding. Glad I bought that Acura instead of the WRX i was looking at a few months back. 😉

    in reply to: Brand Name? #86925

    Brand matters big time. I was riding a Walmart POS Mongoose for several years before I got my first real bike. The difference was night and day. Once I got a decent bike I really started enjoying riding instead of just riding to ride. I picked up a 2009 Cannondale F7 that retails new for around $700 out the door tax included for $475 with 25 miles on it. Turned around 6 months later and sold it for $400, it was still in flawless shape when I sold it. I got my best friend into mountain Biking this year and he picked up a really nice 2008 Trek 6000 for $250 on Craigslist.

    Look on Ebay and Craigslist. You can find some really sweet deals. A used reputable brand name bike that was taken care of is going to be way better than a brand new anything from Walmart. Good luck!

    in reply to: Tax Refund — MTB! #86991

    None here. It’s all going into our first house that we closed on last week. Luckily I sold my old bike a few weeks before we closed and picked up a 6 month old Fisher 29er from a buddy for a great price! I also got quite a few gift cards from Price Point for Christmas so I am almost set for this years riding season.

    I will be picking up a few things here and there in the next few months though like the Bontrager Carbon bars I won on Ebay last night! The money just won’t come from our tax refund. It will come from that magic place where money appears and disappears just as fast that the wifey doesn’t know about. 😉

    Looks like you guys had fun. Your lucky, 20’s and snowing here, grrrrrrrrrr. Just got a new bike a few weeks ago and have only been able to go on one road ride since I got it. Got warm enough the other day just to turn the local trails into a muddy soup. 😢

    in reply to: Disc Brakes #86311

    The stopping power of disk brakes compared to cantilever brakes is night and day. I seriously doubt you will be able to do it for under $100 unless you find somebody practically giving away a used set on ebay or craigs list though. Check out http://www.pricepoint.com. They have some really good prices on some nice sets. Going to be over what you want to spend but should give you a good idea of what is out there for the money.

    in reply to: Let’s get Singletrack Kits! #84219

    They look great. Maybe it’s just the model, lol. My wife seems to agree either way. I had a question about the sizing. Do the mediums run a bit larger then normal? According to the size chart they are a 42. Just wanted to make sure before I order one because I normally where a large jersey sized 41-43 depending on the brand and they usually fit perfect, not to snug for my taste and not to loose. My actual chest measurement is right at 41.5. According to the size chart provided a large would be too big for me.

    Maybe somebody that has already purchased one and is close to my size can help me out. I am 5’10 180 pounds and have an actual chest measurement of 41.5 if this helps any. Thanks in advance.
