How did you like Paris Mountain? I live just up the road - it's my home trails.
If you haven't been in awhile, go ride FATS. It's an IMBA Epic, and probably only an hour or two away from you. Deep Step trail is fun, and ride Brown Wave...
Yep, it's a 2015 Diamondback Axis.
Cute video. With all that Star Wars gear you're wearing, I kept waiting for you to drop into some gnarly trail riding rather than just a gravel road. Nope.

Thanks, all. Some really good info. I really just wanted to know if the 'car wash' stuff had any adverse effects on a bicycle (scratchy surfactants, that sort of thing). Dawn is my...

I bought a few of these lights a year ago when I needed some new ones : https://www.ebay.com/itm/12000Lm-3-x-CREE-XM-L-T6-LED-Bicycle-Lamp-Bike-Headlight-Cycling-motorcycle-Head/322422120595?hash=item4b11db2093:g:5YEAAOSwW8Ra-5Rf:rk:1:pf:1&frcectupt=true They're cheap Chinese 'cree' lights, bright as hell, last a good few hours. Solidly made (not...

Carbon bars won't corrode. Problem solved. Buy yourself a Christmas present :)

So the other day I rode some pretty soggy trails in S. Carolina. Good fun, and ended up with a reddish-brown bike (and myself, truth be told). Carolina mud is VERY slippery,...

Try a pair of 100% RideFit gloves. Pretty cheap and very comfortable.

Great suggestion on the DB Mission 1. I happen to own one. Fox suspension (160 front & rear), Race face + Sram drivetrain. Only thing I added was a KS dropper and...

Agree about Fairclough.  Sad about Cam Zink, too...

Tsali Cycles in Bryson City, NC (Tsali trail system) and Piney Mountain Bike Lounge in Greenville, SC (Paris Mountain trail system) are great bike shop/pub combos. What's not to like?

I think most folks just use Craigslist and Pinkbike, stuff like that.
 
I don't see why anyone would want to steal a folding bicycle.

Good advice, But...But... What if I fit a 29'er fork up front? And it's got boost spacing, so I can put some fat 2.8's on and maybe air 'em up to say 65psi....

I have an Orbea Alma (2016) as my hardtail. It's an awesome bike. I've won XC races 3 times on it. Be aware, though, that they tend to run on the large side....

You're right, Matt. That Slash 8 is 3500. I was looking at the Slash 9's. I still think they're marketing bikes toward the rich dentist crowd. Just my opinion is all.

"...which is good news for those looking to save cash.." Those bikes start at 5 grand. In my world, that's not saving me any cash.
 
Ouri grips. Without a doubt.

I don't think you want to spend a ton of money on this bike. Kind of defeats the purpose, ya know? BUT,..... Two upgrades to consider are better tires (tyres for you foreigners)...
