IIRC some of the newer go pros have a video stabilization feature that actually works decently, additionally for the quality you generally have to play around with the settings a bit to get the most optimal quality out of the camera.
I just picked up a pair of Smith Attack glasses from Steepandcheap for a solid price. So far I really like them.
Ride until you’re satisfied or tired, whichever comes first (hopefully the former) 😛
Honestly any bike regardless of price is okay to start on in my opinion so long as you do one thing: go out and ride it!
That said, I think one of the biggest criteria I would look for regardless of price is disk brakes.
My first MTB was/is a 2018 KHS Alite 1000 hardtail. Great gateway bike into this hobby.
I’ll be going for a ride in Tuley Canyon this Thursday in the afternoon if any of you would like to join me. Feel free to send me a PM.
If you need a riding buddy, let me know!
It’s just a block or so across the bridge from that main bike trail that goes through Oceanside. There are some homeless camps in that area offset a good distance from the trail. They haven’t bothered me really and I generally try to go with at least 1 other person.
It’s relatively small, but there’s a lot of good stuff packed into a small area.
This is actually right next to the airport in Oceanside, I posted it as a small trail named: Tuley Canyon Single Tracks on this site.
Yeah, I’d go with a 21″. The 19″ I got is ever so slightly too small for me but I don’t mind much.
I’m 6’1″ and I honestly don’t mind the 26″ tires. Definitely makes for a more nimble bike IMO, might be a bit more difficult to roll right over things.
I might be a bit biased and inexperienced but I’d say take a look at the KHS Alite 1000’s. They are right around the same price point for the current year. They come with hydraulic disk brakes, tapered threaded headset, a decent air fork etc. The only downside I could see due to preference is that they come with 26″ wheels.
I like to take a look at my LBS first before I look online.
If they have what I want, I’ll purchase it even if it is cheaper online (unless the price is drastically different).
If they don’t have what I want I generally default to purchasing it online depending of it is an item I’m needing in a timely manner.July 31, 2018 at 14:02 in reply to: How do you "accidentally" drive a car on a MTB trail? #244363
It’s a SUV/Crossover, it’s in it element offroad *sarcasm*
Some people just need to learn the hard way I guess.
