What Mitch said: It gets easier, faster and far less messy when you've done it a few times. Judging tubeless by installation only is being short-sighted. You can't know how much aggravation in...

Moab, Utah. For California, I'd say Lake Tahoe, but the mornings can be cold in October.

Interesting concept. Some riders prefer the redundancy of multiple lights. It's a mission-critical item that one really can't have failing, whether due to the unit itself, user error or a crash. As modus...

Matt, that makes sense. I'm sure she's a nice person – just noting what looked like an elementary error that precipitated the crash. I hope she is back in action and having...
"...only way to do Monarch Crest now is to self shuttle." Negative. Park at the bottom of FC and ride/walk up the dirt road to the Crest, over and down. Quite do-able for any...
Why not ride it as a loop? I don't think it's enough of a ride to justify shuffling about with cars. Save your thumbing for Agate Creek, etc.

Agree: 1) better bikes and components are worth extra money; 2) the most important thing is to start riding. Have fun getting into it!

Noneed, good to be fired up about something good for you. Awesome... If you wanna hit the OC goods, there’s always something brewing at IMTBtrails forum. It’s pretty OC centric but members hail...

Swerve, good stuff. Thanks for reminding... I’ll prop Los Pinos Peak for having the most technical ways off and no roads. If you’re there, you’re gonna drop LP Ridge, Bell Ridge or Yeager...
You can get more bike going with used, but it’s not necessary. Even low end builds and cheaper bikes are pretty good now. Rent or demo a squish and hardtail bike and see...
