If you need a 500% gear range on an all mtn bike, you're doing it wrong.
100% agree! Especially on loving trails in the wilderness...
Those "rock gardens" look like the footpath in my mother's flower garden.

Meh. It was interesting compared to the rest of the Placitas network, which isn't saying much. Steep ups and downs,...

I really didn't know what to expect from this trail, but it was GREAT! We shuttled it by parking one...
Man, it was so much more complicated with 2x (and 3X!) drivetrains!

A few minutes worth of high speed and (mostly) perfect turns. No more, no less.

Fast, kinda loose, pretty fun, but over way too quickly. Not real technical, but you can push it pretty hard in...
I totally agree with you. The Aliso Woods area is absolutely NOT classic. It's an okay place to ride in...
I've never really had too much problem wheelie-dropping off a skinny if I felt the need to bail. More options is...

Boring uphill, boring downhill. Unless you love switchbacks, then it'd be amazing.
