replied to $150 fine for riding wet trails
Largely makes sense but I can see it being problematic when someone gets out early when it's frozen and has a mechanical/mishap that delays them causing them to stay on the trail...

replied to What upgrades with $500
Seems everyone has missed the elephant in the room.  You weigh 260# and yer running a 32 fork??!! Spend the $500 and get a real fork.  You'll have a LOT more fun and...
Yup.  It's the common fix.

replied to Moab vs Bryce / Zion / Sedona
Although maybe not *quite* as good as a few 5-star rides in Moab, the St. George area (only 1.5-2 hours from Vegas) in southern Utah will definitely keep you entertained.  Some would...
Hate to say it but a "Co-op" is about as boring a name as one could possibly invent. Go back to marketing school.

replied to Mag-7 VS. Whole Enchilada
Mag for me.  It has more climbing.  Who wouldn't want that?   Srsly tho, both are obviously great and both are entertaining.  Mag seems more adventurous and difficult so it gets my vote.
I REALLY hope this was an omission, but did IMBA get involved in this project??!! It being their home town and all...

Good article. A repair stand is a luxury imo. I wrenched my bikes for years without one, usually turning them upside down.

Worthy of repeating: "The one trend that truly needs to be reversed...is the accelerating loss of backcountry riding opportunities, especially in Western States where Recommended Wilderness Areas and Wilderness Study Areas are now...

1.  15mm front axle.  Stupid intentional product range differential.  Should have been 20mm. 2.  Boost.  Unlikely that it'll stick.  Everything likely going to be 157 at some point. 3.  I actually miss rims without...
Renting a bike is often much much easier than taking it with you depending on your needs.
Although too long for most of non-lawyer types (he he), thanks for the well written article. Living just south of the Canadian border, the laws are vastly different. It'd be very informative to compare liability laws in America. Thanks again.
So ya I watched those a bit and ya, it was, ya, pretty cool, ya.

  Some things I've learned if it's any help: For snow primarily: -Racing bike:  Essentially only good at perfectly groomed snow due to geometry and skinnier tires with lesser tread.  Light weight.  Rigid seatpost usually....
Add some Gorilla tape or similar. I've saved many a slashed tire with tape all the way around the rim and tire. For miles. On very rough terrain. At speed.

Nice IMBA propaganda. Pfft.

replied to Creaking bottom bracket.
Chainring bolts? If it's 1x, then grease where the chainring mates with the crank. Try a different crank.  Bonding loose for arm/spindle interface? Any frame cracks around BB?

replied to Creaking bottom bracket.
Just to clarify, when you said you greased all mating surfaces, does that include literally everything?  I've had creaks from BB spacers rubbing against things.  So if you haven't, grease everything that...

Monosyllabic has five.
Although you do have to exercise a bit a caution while on the blood thinner, a target INR of 1.6-2.0 is actually quite low (meaning your blood is only slightly thinner than...

commented on Mountain Biking Dixie National Forest in Utah
Most of these are great trails but it's a shame nothing has been done in the area for ~20 years. There's HUGE potential for more trails but the area has stagnated.

Edit:  NS doesn't take rattle either but I have to carry a wrench and tighten it after a bumpy road. Not gonna come off, just moves a bit that's all.

replied to Non-negotiables
I won't buy a frame with a press fit BB.  Even if they are reliable it drives me looney that I can't replace it myself.

replied to MTB Chains
Yes Shimano chains.  But personally, I always had more trouble with the Shimano pins than I ever had with a Sram master link.  Are you doing it wrong?
