replied to Who else is watching Rampage right now?
 
Watched the first run, went for a ride, when I got back, nothing basically changed after the 2nd run. Awesome event!

replied to 2.35 or 2.6" tyres?
 
Have not tried any of those, but right now I'm running 2.6 both Butcher Grid/Purgatory Grid. Was running stock before, these make a pretty huge difference to me.

replied to 2.35 or 2.6" tyres?
 
Seems to be the trend now, wider up front, I'm thinking going 2.5 front/2.4 rear Maxxis DHF/DHR II Minion 3c/exo.

Koko area could be rideable, probably everything around GJ, but will be chilly.

Things I've upgraded so far: grips, handlebar, pedals, tires.

Head over to a local bike shop and see what used bikes they have. Also ask them what are the best bikes used on local trails.

replied to Handlebars
 
Just put these on a few weeks ago, very nice. The 32mm rise is very nice, do not lean as much forward. Pretty nice on climbs also. https://www.raceface.com/products/details/atlas-1-1-4-riser-bars

I ride for fun, but do challenge myself on every ride.

replied to Roots: Impediment or Feature?
 
Here on the Western Slope we have lots of rocks, and some roots all are features. We also have trails that are fast and flowing.

replied to Don't mess with this dude on the trail
 
Very Cool! Never seen a wolverine before.
 
I usually take my time on straight aways.
I've seen a few women on 29ers around here.

replied to tire pressure
 
I've only been riding for about a year and a half, but I did go lower tire pressure when I switched over to tubeless. Yes, weight, terrain should be in the calculation....

replied to Backcountry.com
 
Have bought from them before, not bike related though. I would buy from them again.

replied to Riding on horse trails
 
"My question is, are we seriously not to enter horse trails at all? Just passing by at least?" Yes, you should have not gone there at all, what so ever.

replied to 6K Bike at Walmart?
 
The people who shop at Walmart, do not have the money for a 6K bike.

replied to How do you feel about litter on the trail?
 
I don't believe I've ever seen any on the trail yet, around here it's very clean.
GJmtb   on Apr 9, 2019
replied to Looking for help/guidance
 
I say start off on the Giant Stance, you should be just fine on most trails.

replied to Shimano Brakes Howling
 
Never had this happen, just some squeaking. Just needs to be cleaned with some 90% alcohol.

replied to Camping in/near Salida CO
 
Have not been to Salida, but I'm pretty sure there is alot of dispersed camping around. 14er trailheads are a good place to start.

replied to advice on bike for beginner
 
I would checkout your local bike shop for advice on a bike.
From Tuesday's ride Pet-E-Kes.
Last week did Mary's Loop and some trails in Lunch Loop area. Should get out at least two more times this week.

replied to Moab vs Bryce / Zion / Sedona
 
No mountain biking in Zion or Bryce, but definitely checkout the hiking in both parks.  Definitely hit Gooseberry Mesa (MTBing), as well.

replied to 29er Trail Tires
 
Just put on some 29 x 2.6 Specialized Butcher Grid (F), Purgatory Grid (R), very nice setup, $60 per tire, running about 22-23 lbs.

replied to Anyone wear MTB pants (not tights)?
 
I still wear shorts down to 36 degrees, so far.
Nothing still, but maybe by the end of this week, something will be doable.

Hiking. Yesterday was 5 weeks since my last ride.
