Problem with leaving fallen trees on the trail is that people will start getting hurt and government will start closing down the trails. You have to understand that back in the day...

<p style="text-align: left;">Also I have a Salsa Beargreese and Salsa Mukluk which I ride fully rigid but mostly in the winter. Cant wait for the snow to come</p>
I disagree with Plusbike Nerd. Going tubeless is really great. You are able to run lower pressure and dont have to worry about pinch flats. You can safe at least a pound...
Would be nice to read a review of newer cutthroat models.
I own Salsa Warbird and really love that bike. I only do one day gravel rides and dont carry any gear and rarely hit any singletrack unless its green. For people that wish to ride more technical terrain and carry gear on the bike cutthroat will be perfect. Thanks for the information. I am glad…

Hi Koolerb, You probably just didn't get down enough on the drops so that is why the guy on a hardtail was coasting with you. If you would get really nice and low...
The problem with flat bars is that you can only break from one position. Sure you can put one of those old school "mountain bike drops" that we used to put on...

I know some guys that enjoy riding technical stuff like that on their gravel bikes but I dont see a point if I have a mountain bike. I keep my gravel grinder...
I own older version Slayer and it's a great very capable bike. Not the best rig for climbing but I have climbed close to 2000m on it during some rides and it wasn't too bad. It descents almost like a downhill bike.
So to make a long story short hunters want to keep the whole forest to themselves. They are too lazy to go deeper into the woods to look for Elk and other animals to hunt so they simply want everybody out. Thats not fair and I hope they loose
What is advantage of running 27.5 in the front and 29 in the rear?
Nice bike. Thanks for your review.

Great trail but would consider it a technical blue not black. It only gets black when wetand then those wet...

Looks like an awesome helmet but in the picture the visor looks really big.
Variety is great but if not much variety then a semi technical climbs and fast technical downhills with some jumps and table tops or just aggressive XC trails
Thanks for your review. For some reason I always have a hard time finding shorts that will stay perfectly around my waist without falling off or being too tight.
