Great place, not very technical, flowy fun

What about the fork going from rigid to a Bluto?  The manufacturer only sells it rigid.

They were selling Motobecane, didn't think they owned them?  Half the price of what was listed on the Motobecane website.

About to pull the trigger on a Motobecane bike from Bikesdirect, but seems too good to be true.  It's half price, how is that possible?

I fall under the belief that if you use your brakes to slide turns it's an offense to the trail, but if you naturally slide you're a stud and it's a legit thing to do.
Asking this as nice as this question can be asked. Who the F is this guy? He travels around riding some of the best trails I've ever seen and his skills are ridiculous. I ride a lot and it does look anything like that. Not to mention the guys he rides with- who the hell…

Those components are too nice for a bike that originally cost $600.  Nothing wrong with a $600 bike, just don't waste big $$$ upgrading it.  You have the fever, move towards the...

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...
