About Me

Luv mtn biking
Once left my bike after a ride. Just leaned it up on the fence near the trailhead, cleaned up, dressed and just drove off in blissful blinders. After 30 minutes absolute panic,...

So coool seeing these hardcore hardtail. My opinion is only hard-asses ride hard tails. (Ok it’s a self-fulfilling and self-congratulating statement:)) Here’s my baby. Soma Juice XL, 2.5 minions   See you out there.   Framebreaker

Both rigs look nice and come in at a great price point.   29 tires really do roll better, smoother over trails and rocks, etc   My advice is if your nearing 6 ft tall and...
This info is great. Can’t wait to try the teflon tape trick too. My experience is that car tire patches can adhere quite well to inside of tire and are tough enough often to supply the needed stiffness in a tread slash hole. I may cut a few sections out of a retired Maxxis for…
Aplam, The case is also about weight and size and fit. You should know that heavy and large riders like me (6,4 and 250lbs) are hard to find factory bikes for that fit...
Speedballs - Pumpkin seeds - prefer these roasted Sunflower seeds - I used the roasted no salt but it’s a personal thing Raisins - note: at the bulk bins raise the lid and take a whiff of the raisins, if they smell tasty that’s the one you want. Monuka raisins, Thompson and Flame can make…
 
Glad it helps. C u on the trail. Framebreaker

1. More bugs in my teeth - “How can u tell a happy biker? - bug’s in the teeth” 2. Friendly meetings on trail with hikers and bikers 3. Replace that 2 yr...
 
I’m a bigger dude too - 6,4 about 250lbs give or take :). My advice is for general fit regarding the common apparel makers: Pearl Izumi xxl works for me (bottoms and...

Aww. The Trek 4300 with Rockshox Jett fork. Was so excited about it took it up to Whistler in 2000. Wore thru the v-brake pads and had a blast - no jumps,...

Ride to smile. Smile to ride. No GPS, no odometer, no hearttracker, no training zone goal, no miles ridden, no elevation gain/loss - just sweet sweat, glorious nature, perhaps good company and...

Jeff, You likely know this but on the preventative side: Maxxis Minions DHR and/or DHF (I’ve used both) with the Exo protection are simply hard to beat. I’ve put about 3k on my...

The primary weather enemy of your bike parts on rack during travel is mineral and/or dirt, grit anything gritty. Easy albeit redneck solution is to forget about protecting tires, rims and cover...
Greg, Was so affirming and yet challenging to hear about the hiker trying to be trail police. My experience has been similar but never had someone physically try to block my way - It’s usually the “hey bikes aren’t allowed on this trail!” They haven’t been accurate yet, after thousands of trail miles across WA,…
