You hear about hills that are so brutal and then you get out there and it's no where near as...

replied to Helmets and Body Armor - What do you use?
 
DH- both full face helmet and body armor.  Trails just a regular helmet.  If riding with more protection adds to the enjoyment of your riding do it!
How do you work for Singletracks and not know there is good riding in "The South"???? I live in Colorado and would love to ride so many areas down there. Maybe you should spend some time reading your own website?
Funny, when I finished the article was wondering what the comments would be like. Very difficult to read, like listening to someone who likes to hear their own voice- words for the sake of words. Terrible article, poorly written and was a little embarrassed for the author while reading it. Not from the south, so…
Sorry Dieter, didn't see your question until now.  If I were riding Breck, I'd bring my trail bike not my DH bike.  The area is awesome, just focuses on trail more than...

Size is more important than components!  Why only 2 months?

replied to What bike rack do you use?
 
Yakima 2" hitch rack.  Works great, very secure for highway driving, easy to load and unload, and great customer service.  Holds 4 bikes rock solid, the new version takes Fat Bikes.

Great list, really can't go wrong.  Ridden 3 of them and all were great.  Think that if I could only own one bike it would be the Remedy, simply is the best...

This is one of the funnest trails I have ever ridden. So many choices of lines and features. Mini loops...

Cross the Hwy from the parking lot and follow the trail- it's that simple. Opens up to upper 3 Bottles,...

Hey Daniel, welcome to MTB.  Guys get a little rough, but you can really learn a lot from them if you just take it as fun poking.  No one is being truly...

Nothing wrong with this place, just that there is nothing good about it either. Average beauty relative to where it...
Balls out, getting back out on the bike!  No advice from me, just praise.

Looks amazing!

replied to Bike Racks
 
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...

Nice, missing the green out here in Colorado.

replied to Salida bike trip
 
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.

replied to Trek Fuel Ex 8 vs Scott Genius 740 27+
 
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...

Greg Heil it's your fault!!!
The rain issue has been covered. Parks- CB and Keystone are my 2 favorite parks in Co., But..... when you state your looking for rollercoaster and more flowy style riding, they are not...

replied to What do I do!!!
 
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…

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...
