When my robs died I went Bontrager XR3 and never looked back. They roll well and have great traction.

Cannondale AL1 lefty. Tried to kill me but made me a good rider pretty quick! Was either get good or die trying.

I like my Bontrager Ion 800 or 700. I put 1 on the bars and 1 on my helmet.
Nothing stops me, I have a Farley! Love it!
$3000-$5000 for me. I currently run a Farley 7 and love it. Am toying with getting a Farley EX8 as I am not getting younger. I also work at a shop p/t so...

replied to Nates in snow - should I stud them?
Really only needed for ice. I love riding in the snow. Especially while it is still falling! Enjoy the FAT!

replied to 29 or 27.5 inch tires?
How much does 29er impair on the jumps and burms? I don't think it impairs at all with 29er wheels. I just pick my line and have at it.  You need to go...

replied to Shimano Vs. SRAM Drivetrain?
I prefer Sram. All my bikes are Sram. I run a 1x10 on my fat bike and have a n/w chainring. I have not had a problem with it in 6 months of riding. The Sram  feels more snappy to me also. That being said I would not base my decision on the d/t that…

This is a relatively new trail system. It is only about3 miles long at this time. It is flowing and...

replied to Help needed with getting started!
It depends on the outcome of the crash. I have broken 3 ribs, 1 vertebrae, compressed 1 vertebrae, broken tailbone in 2 places, torn ligament's  and tendons in both hands and sprained a shoulder and  none of that was fun. They were painful at best! There have been a few funny crashes I have had…

replied to Hard-Tails or Full Suspension?
All my bikes are H/T and I am 59. I love the quickness, liveliness and the climbing ability of the H/T. I recently rode a Salsa bucksaw fs fatty and did not like the fs at all.(I do love fatties though)  Could I get used to it, more than likely but until that is the…

Hi Gregory and welcome.  Crankbrothers is good stuff. Go with  Baggy shorts with under liner or you can get the chamois built in.  I prefer the under liner with baggy shorts for mtb. I also ride road and prefer the tight shorts with built in for that. Jersey is up to you. I like mine to…

What bike do you have? Are you riding the dirt or just the road?

replied to Confidence booster
Fat for sure! Or a plus is also great for the confidence. I do stuff on my fatty I would not even have thought of doing on the flash. I have become a better rider on the skinny bike also.

replied to 29 or 27.5 inch tires?
I am 6' 1" I ride a C-dale flash 29er lefty and it is FAST! It is also sure footed in the corners. I tried a 27.5 and felt crunched up and had pedal strikes. Also as said above felt like I worked a lot harder to climb on 27.5. It was a little more controllable than the…
