    Hey; pavement is how some of us get to the trails. Beats a T-660 getting 6.5 MPG at $4.00 a Gal. 😄 😆

  • in reply to: Do you really need an $8000 MTB? #111635

    Buy the best tool you can afford, and then take care of it. Buy the bike that works for you, and your normal riding terrain. If you ride a couple hours a week on local trails, no you probably don’t need a $8000 bike. If racing is your passion then $8000 is nothing. For myself, as MTB’ing is the only outdoor hobby I have left, and I ride all over the US ( Rail-Trail one day, Black Diamond trails the next) I bought the the most versatile bike I could find. 2011 Pro Carbon Stumpjumper. Cost wasn’t the point, that the bike was perfect for me, and my riding was.

    Up; Lower Columbine, Cheyenne Canyon Blvd., Gold Camp, St. Marys. Down; Pipeline, Bear Creek, Buckhorn, Captain Jacks, The Chutes. Was a wonderful day
    Stationed out here in 78-79, wasn’t on duty or chasing skirts, was up there. Hasn’t changed much in 30 years.

    They are not letting any vehicles on High Dr, or Gold Camp. They will not let you on Gold Camp if you climb up the Chutes. However you can still use the large parking lot at the junction of High, and Gold Camp, and ride any trails from there including down the Chutes, just not via Gold Camp. They are not worried about mountain bikers coming down. Said they stopped 40 people last night with alcohol, and fireworks. 😏 Thank god stupid is not contagious. Decided I needed to do a little hiking, so used St Marys Falls Tr. to accesss Jones Downhill/ Pipeline, so maybe it is. Note to self ( next time bring hiking boots)
    Had the place to myself no Motos , couple of bike tracks, and a lot cooler. 😃

    Light showers or better moved through most of the Front Range late yesterday, so things are looking up 😃 😃 😃

  • Sorry can’t help on that, meet up with riders from there at the Va MTB Festival. Have also ridden some of the trails there. As you are new to the area let me invite you to the Va MTB Festival, 3 day event , private campground, every year, Memorial Day weekend, In Stokesville VA.

  • in reply to: fires in colorado #110811

    From what I can gather they don’t want anything with a motor up there. Definitely will be here tomorrow, so will just ride up from town. Got all day, 😃 which will be a nice change, with all the heat have had get all my riding in before 10 or 11.

    Looks like I’ll be stuck in the Springs for the 4th. Yea I know it’s not a bad place to be stuck. Have been on the internet trying to find out about trail closures in the area. Know most anything north of Rt 24 is a no go. Does anybody know if the trails around Gold Camp Rd are open? Bear Creek, Captain Jacks, Seven Bridges, etc;

  • I’d check the bike shops in the Richmond area, I know they mountain bike there. Also have some great trails right in town. 😃

  • in reply to: fires in colorado #110807

    just checked http://www.cotrip.org not showing any problems

  • in reply to: Furry Trail Obstacles #110243

    So cute, and tasty when grown 😆 Lot of bear around this year, either there are more or they’re looking for food. Fortunately mountain bikers need fatting up before eating.

  • in reply to: Race Rookie Question #110062

    So it’s just like NASCAR 😆 Next time try bump and run.

  • in reply to: Weird Wheel Wobble #110033

    Have had several do that, think the cords are breaking in the tire. That’s what happened a few weeks ago when I blew a tire off the rim when trying to mount it, of course the wobble was so bad the tire could not rotate between the seat stays. Think that is the price we are paying for light weight tires.

  • in reply to: Department of the weird, round 2: 4-wheeled MTB #109279

    Yea; 56 lbs., 4 shocks, tires, wheels, fun toy. 😏 The difference between men and boys; the price of their toys. Like I have room to talk 😆

  • The Big Bend deal has been in the works for many years. Certain groups are just throwing rocks at it. As for wilderness 99.9% of the people don’t know bikes are banned, when they find out they get this big question mark face , and then finally ask why. My answer " because certain groups don’t want to share, the more people they can keep out the more they have it to themselves"
    I purpose we ban humans from wilderness areas, see who raises the biggest stink then.
    This quote from hikergirl sums up how short-sighted people are. "I think I’ve capped off the last of the trails in CGSP and hiked all 35 miles! Thanks to mountain bikers who pushed for these trails. See ya out there."

    Sorry I’m going to miss everyone, 😢 going north, gota pay for my Mountain Bike Transporter.

  • in reply to: Night Riding #109163

    I’ve also used untinted safety glasses.They are inexpensive so don’t have to worry about loosing them. Found some stylish single-lens glasses at Huck and Roll. Also most multi-lens glasses come with clear lenses.
