replied to Trail Hardtails
Check out Commencal Meta HT. I built up a really nice 27.5+  hardtail from the frame up. Frame only cost $500 brand new and you can run 27 or 29er wheels on...

replied to What does your bike weigh?
I try to hit the bathroom before I ride. It usually takes off a 1 lb or 2 of the overall weight.

replied to Anyone wear MTB pants (not tights)?
I usually just wear long-johns with shorts over them, but I resonantly got these riding pants from Amazon. They run small so you got order a larger size. I'm pretty happy with...

    2018 Commecal Meta HD. Bike rips. Running 27.7 x 3.0s. 150mm Fox 36 up front.
After doing a bunch of tubeless setups, it gets to be pretty easy. That being said, I highly recommend a valve core remover, gorilla tape, stans no tube injector, and definitely an...

replied to Trails just north of Boston.
There's a lot of great trails north of Boston. Fells is ok, but check out Harold Parker, Lynn Woods, Greenwood(Beverly Commons), Breakheart, Russell Mills, and Billerica State forest is a pretty good...
Great read. My pup Ivy is the same way. Always stoked to ride and I'll put her in my truck sometimes and hour before, just to calm her down as she'll wait for hours knowing she's going for a bike ride. Her excitement modivates me on the trails as well as she rips through the…

replied to Hardtail Advice: $2,000~ Price Range
I picked up a 2018 Commencal Meta HT frame in the winter and built it up. Loving the bike. Boost spacing and I'm running a 140mm Pike on the front, but will...
I have some nice seat covers for my truck that work well. I also always bring my trail dog who loves the mud and water. I have a second seat cover on...

replied to 150mm fork on 120 frame
I'd agree with the +20mm for about as much as you want to go up without really changing the geometry. That being said I was using a fatbike speced for  a 100mm...

replied to 29plus wheel set carbon or aluminum
I've stuck with aluminum as I tend to bash rear rims. My current rear rim has dings and dents in it and I should be replacing soon, but I'm still running tubeless...
I personally always size up. I'm only 5'8-5'9 ish have been going with large on all my current bikes. I like to run a short stem on all my bikes so with...

I second what Fatbike1 says. Love my dropper post and use it all the time. Any kind of downhill section, its nice to keep it low and out of the way. I...

Big fan of OneUp chain guide. Run this on all my bikes. Protects your chain/chainring and keeps the chain on.

replied to What's with the new boom box trend?
Sometime I play music from my Iphone, so it's not very loud but I can hear it fine. I usually only do this when I'm out on solo rides. If I use...

replied to Bike tie-downs?
Typically I'm just taking 1 bike, so I just lay it down under the tonneau cover of my pickup truck. If I'm hauling more bikes I built a rack out of spare...

replied to Vehicle rooftop tents: Yeah! or Meh?
These things look pretty cool, but hard to justify getting one unless I planned to use it a bunch. I have thought about get a truck bed tent, only about $150. This...

replied to Best vehicle for mountain biking?
Could I get a Prius and put a roof rack on it? Sure could. It would probably get the job done. There is no best vehicle just better options than others. Love my...

Already been said but my Ford F150, 4 door Crue Cab sits 5 comfortable and I could put 5 bikes over the tailgate. Most of time I just travel with my trail...
Yea in a second if the prices were not so crazy. I've smashed and ripped off many derailers so yea I'd be a little worried about a $300 derailer. Don't see myself...

The Bell Super is fine for the full face every once in a while, but if you plan on using full face all the time, than get a DH full face helmet....

Added a dropper post to the Salsa Mutluk Fatty. Love the dropper post. Makes the downhills so much better and up with the climbs.
All the stuff that's been said is good stuff: low seat, pad up, relax, not stiff, look ahead not down, start small work your way up, speed is good (too slow you'll...

replied to Longer or Shorter Crank Arms?
Depends on what trails you ride. Fire roads are fine with 175m but I'll only run the shorter 170mm or 165mm. Here in New England, tons of rock and roots. Better to...
