Beautiful with great single track
Wow, what an article! John, I think you missed your calling. A person could base an entire vacation without leaving this article. Great choice of 10 trails- some states couldn't boast that much quality riding! Think I'm going to make a point of reriding all of them.
 

I do love high desert riding, so I am bias. 5 stars on beauty and 5 stars on trail. Definitely...

commented on Podcast: Why Do $10,000 Mountain Bikes Exist?
 
Very busy businessmen/women who love to ride, but don't have a lot of time. When you do get time to ride, you simply want your bike to perform without issues and get the most out of your limited time. If $10,000 doesn't offend your budget your time is likely limited. Also gives you a little…

Love the Stache.  Your budget is either a new hardtail or used FS.  Body hurts a lot less after a big ride on a FS.
