"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.
I don't believe I've ever seen any on the trail yet, around here it's very clean.

I say start off on the Giant Stance, you should be just fine on most trails.

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

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.

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.

From my last ride 21 Dec. Horse Thief Bench.  
No problem like that around here for Mountain Bike riding, but the CNM is getting more visitors/hikers I believe, not mountain biking in the CNM, but you never know.

Checkout Moab and/or the Grand Valley.
Will try to get out to Moab, and some stuff about 30 miles from my place, around 9000 ft. Also, try to get over to some stuff about 50-100 miles south of...

Anyone know the weight of a 2017 FSR Camber or where I can find it?

replied to Do you haggle over prices with your LBS?
 
So far have only made smaller purchases. I also shop on-line for better prices and better selection of gear.

I've seen at least one I believe about 5 times the last 3 plus years in the same area here in GJ. Got pics.

Get synthetic clothes, shorts, shirts (long/short). Gloves are a must, helmet a must. Also, a nice synthetic jacket/windbreaker for if it rains.
Checkout Rudy Project.

Head over to your local shop and test ride some bikes, they can point you into the right direction, with their knowledge of local trails.
