About Me

My name is Greg Heil, and I am the Editor in Chief for Singletracks.com. I've been mountain biking seriously since 2005, and I love to travel and ride new trails. My travels have taken me across the United States multiple times. To date (January 2015), I have ridden well over 400 different trail systems in 20 different states and provinces, and am adding more singletrack to my trail resume every year! I enjoy all types of mountain biking, from ultra endurance cross country all the way up to chair lift-accessed downhill runs. If you want to connect with me, please follow me on Instagram or "like" my page on Facebook. Cheers!

Funny thing about this video--I'm about 90% certain that all of the super-scenic shots without riders in them, of the majestic gnarly peaks and the beautiful lake, are in Glacier National Park where there's no real riding.

Pretty ingenious move on Amazon's part. They've identified one of the biggest hang ups in people buying bikes online, and solved it in a simple fashion.
I'd love to ride the Maah Daah Hey!
My main takeaway from this article is that I need to buy a fresh tube of grease (last one is almost out).= Seriously though, based on this I don't re-grease things often enough. Thanks for the breakdown here!
