Hmmm, that adds a couple interesting data points. The article I originally read had some questions to the film maker where they made a big deal about doing it unsupported. It seems the term is used a bit ambiguously.
I have had good results from the Trainer Road programs. Worth a look.
This was interesting but triggered a debate between my friend and I about if dropping caches along the way could still be considered unsupported. My point was how is that different than a car trailing you and giving you food and water? Either way you are not bringing with you or gathering from the environment the materials required to complete the ride. Thoughts?
I would have your LBS use the derailleur hanger alignment tool to verify that your hanger is straight vs just seeing if it is flat. The 3(ish) feet of extension that comes off that tool really shows the most minor of bends in the hanger.December 21, 2017 at 11:53 in reply to: Pump, sprint, shred and repeat.

That should make for a good Xmas as long as they don’t get snow.
<p>Thanks for the tip on the shock Aaron, always learning something new.</p>
<p>I use a Light & Motion Urban Trail 850 on both my bar and my helmet, really solid light.</p>
<p>I use the 1Up-USA bike rack. Specifically the hitch mount 2 tray with 2 more when I need them. I’ve had roof racks and other hitch racks, including the Kuat NV, and this is the best rack I’ve ever had. 5/5, would rack again :)</p>November 8, 2017 at 14:16 in reply to: A Bit Of Halloween Fun With A Night Ride & Spoopy Stories #228532
Yikes Jeff, that’s intense! Certainly nothing close to what I’ve had to deal with.
Do YOU want to race? I think that’s the only question that needs to be answered here.
I live in an area with an active mountain lion population but have never run into them. The general fear with them is small children, they are generally afraid of humans. While attacks do happen it’s generally because a human has gone near their babies or where they have hidden their kill ( ML will kill and then hide it to return and feed for a few days ). General rule is the same as bears, bell for prevention, pepper spray for protection.
The guys at GMBN and GCN really like them as does the chairman of IMBA. It’s a well established brand in Europe that is only new here. If you know how to do your own bike work or have a good relationship with your LBS you should be G2G.
I guess I’ll be the edge case here. I have a dropper post and find that I am less stable and slower when it’s down. I don’t know the last time I used it and am pulling it off my bike this week in favor of a static post.
Here is the perspective from Horns High MTB, a Kansas City local.August 11, 2017 at 21:11 in reply to: VIDEO: New Ride Day On Deer Creek Trail In Crested Butte #222715
RE: Corn Plant, do you mean this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracaena_fragrans ? If so I’ve never seen anything like that in Colorado. You do make a good point that you shouldn’t use something on yourself unless you know what it does.
All of the racks I’ve had have stated that using a bike cover voids the warranty and I think they would add a huge amount of drag and therefore force on the bike would increase. I feel your pain but a dirty bike is better than the broken bike all over the highway.
Start with the trails at Green Mountain and then move on to Apex, Mt. Falcon, White Ranch, Centennial Cone, all good areas. MTB Project and Trail Forks have good maps. Big Ring Cycles in town are great as well.
Thanks, I feel the same way. I used a GoPro Hero4 Black.
If I think it will make an interesting video and won’t interfere with the ride or the ride is longer than the battery life then I’m wearing it.May 23, 2017 at 12:25 in reply to: VIDEO: Busy Saturday Morning At Mt Falcon Park in Morrison, CO #216550
Cool, thanks for the advice Aaron!
