If you can get under 30lbs for a FS bike these days, you're doing pretty good. For years weights were trending downward, but then we started adding things like dropper posts, tool...

I believe Interbike was held in Anaheim at one time, and a few years ago they were really close to moving there, but ended up just changed convention centers in Vegas. As an attendee it appears Anaheim isn't quite as convenient as Las Vegas in terms of hotels nearby and proximity to the airport. I…

For those who may have noticed a portion of Phil's audio cuts out at the 18:30 mark, the full quote is: "sometime in the future I want to open up [my own bike park training facility]." We'll update the podcast file with the missing audio ASAP.

I keep reminding myself that hikers probably see mountain bikers the same way mountain bikers see motorcyclists (and now e-cyclists). Trail access doesn't always have to be a zero sum game.
"we are really in danger of losing our access to the parks where we ride because of them and their selfish riders" I'm not familiar with what's going on there so I'd love to learn more. Has this been covered by the local news, or are there land managers we might be able to contact…
@dtimms, this is certainly an open question. Where do eMTBs fit? Even if we say e-bikes are e-bikes, people will still want to distinguish between electrics that are meant for commuting vs. riding gnarly trails vs. hauling cargo. Fat bikes are mountain bikes, but so are DH bikes with 10" of travel and everything in…
Easy now. Personal attacks aren't going to move this discussion forward. I would throw this back to you and ask: What is it about eMTBs, and those who choose to ride them, that upsets you so much? I agree that motorcycles and ORVs ruin the wilderness experience. They're noisy and belch stinky, gray exhaust. Chairlifts…

replied to Coyote Attacks
 
That's scary. Coyotes are pretty much everywhere! I've seen 'em while mountain biking, even on in-town trails, but they always run away.
