It’s only a ten mile ride; I can do it at the edge of dark in an hour....   And I don’t need no frigg’n light.  Oops.

On the long 8 hour drive to the cabin, I realized I forgot my water bottle at home  (I carry a backpack but just don’t like the weight of water on my...

I rode the Seely Pass to the Flowmama trail. I started out on the southern trail head and immediately ran...

replied to Hard Tail with Dropper, help!
 
Late to this party....  I’ve been on my Roscoe 8 for a bit under a year. Love the bike and had I seen your post earlier, I would have, with extreme bias,...
 
Some of this could be ignorance. The local trails I have been on have little signage as to who is maintaining the trail, much less who to contact. You have to do...
Old thread that got bumped but this is still relevant today, given tariffs and what not. I have worked for US manufacturers (different industry) and was always amazed that my plant had...

replied to I need another bike.
 
I went from a Specialized Hard Rock with clipless pedals and it seemed like you could practically twirl the bike any which way but it had 26” rims so going to the...
Mountain Bike Action just did a review of the 2019 Remedy. Edit:  Well, delete that. It was if the 9.9 and you’re looking at the 8.

replied to I need another bike.
 
I  bought a Roscoe 8 a few months ago and it has great control. I’m assuming you know to do a serious test ride before you buy. Frame size is critical; I’m...

replied to Minimum Ride?
 
I no longer worry about the miles or minutes, it’s about the experience. One recent week I did a 22 mile ride preceded by a 7 mile ride. They were both awesome...

replied to Do you ride "on" or "in" your bike?
 
That’s a big difference, having your remote break and then having to set you saddle at one height for the entire race. You’re going to have to experiment and find what feels...

replied to Do you ride "on" or "in" your bike?
 
Ditto on the dropper post comment. I rode a long trail tonight and when I hit the more technical climbs, I dropped the post and was “in” the bike, rather than “on”....

I did the entire trail, out and back (22 miles); took about 3.5 hours. I was tired, to say the...
