"I just don’t think this is acceptable" Who cares what you think. The women are there by their own free will. Are you saying women can't do this because it offends you? That they can't make that choice themselves...How F'ing noble of you to tell women what jobs they should or should not do.

I rode a rigid 29'er SS for a bit.  I really liked the simplicity of it and how direct it was on the trail.  You really had to think about what line...

replied to What bike rack do you use?
 
I use a 1Up USA hitch mount.  Works great and folds up when not in use.  I leave mine on my car, but it easily fits in the trunk
Adidas terrex solo approach shoes work very well.  Same sole as the 5.10 but are much better for hiking in, especially rock

Some of the adidas shoes has the same stealth soles as the 5.10.  They work just as well but you don't look like a 10 yr old skateboarder

Independent fabrications and Ted Wojcik are 2 great Northeast custom frame builders.  I had a Wojc back in the day, phenomenal handling bike, very comfortable to ride.  One day I would like...

Another vote for kingdom trails in VT.  I had a great time there.  We rented a house within easy riding distance to the trails.

I have found that good low rolling resistance 4" tires like the Jumbo Jims roll surprisingly well on the street and gravel.  Fast enough that I am no longer looking at 27.5+...
Fat bikes are quickly becoming my only bikes. I have a 24lb fat bike that rips on smoother singletrack and does very well on long gravel rides and a FS fat bike for when things get rowdy. Gone are my gravel bike, hardtails and FS 29'ers. They just weren't any better and were limited where…
 
I always negotiate. I find the easiest way to get a significant discount is to pay cash.  I only go in with the amount I want to pay.  So if they don't...
