Almost any quality brand will hold the Trek Fuel- not really a very heavy bike.  Yakima holdup as stated above is a great choice, great rack, easy to use and a great...

I love October in Colorado and Salida is a pretty safe bet.  It's Colorado, so anything can happen, but I'd think your odds are good.  If you come a little earlier it...

replied to Experience With 1up USA Bike Rack?
If the price is comfortable, you can't beat 1 up- simply the best.  You can find every type of rack sold used on Craigslist, but you won't find the 1up because no...
Will definitely ride that list this season.

Good problem to have- both bikes are great.  When dealing with 2 such equal quality bikes, it simply comes down to fit.  Go out of your way to test ride these on...

Be very polite when you get a chance to speak, it's one thing to use that terminology here with people who sympathize, but it will not serve you well at town meetings....
Anyone who rides this trail needs to be a good ambassador for mountain biking. Please be over the top considerate to the trail, the surrounding area, and to hikers and horses. They openned the door, don't screw it up!
I like REI, but will stop shopping there. This gun control crap is wearing on me. Responsible gun owners are the only ones to follow the rules and at the same time are not the ones causing the problem. REI spent good money in my city to build a great trail system and it hurts…

replied to New Bike Purchase (Novice Rider)
Both seem like nice bikes, one offers XT which is certainly the better drivetrain between the 2, but the other has better brakes.  SLX are surprisingly good brakes.  Either way, at your...

This is a great idea, should make it a quick click on your front page.

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?

commented on Watch: Crushing It on a Hardtail
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…
