Forget that nonsense about a $2000+ bike to start with.  You don't know what you want so how can you make a good decision on a $3000 bike? Spend $400 on a craigslist...

Anyone know where to watch the Olympic XC test event on Sunday?  I  mean short of flying to Japan.
I carry them into the shower with me after every ride. Super easy.

My favorite part might be the kid on crutches that yells "cross county sucks!"

Racism is not strictly political unless you assume one party is pro-equality and the other pro-white nationalism. Laura Ingraham's long history of reciting white nationalist talking points is well documented. Is Sea Otter about...

I've used a Garmin Forerunner 235 for a few years and highly recommend it.  A screen protector is a must though.  Great accuracy, simple, uploads easily, not too expensive.  My only minor...

Don't listen to the haters Truculent.  I appreciate the heads up and I have no desire to support Laura Ingrams White Power Hour.  Do you have a suggestion for a Weathertech alternative? ...

You might consider sticking to the lower price range to start.  As you progress you might decide you're a XC racer, a dirt jumper, an enduro or downhill nut, whatever.  The more...

agree, totally weird to ask a hunting question on a mountain bike site.  But since we're all here... I've endured some significant storms with just a tarp for shelter.  If you avoid laying...

Well, I learned something new today! I'm picturing you firing while riding like the hunt scene in Dances with Wolves.  Much more exciting than hunting in the south which mainly consists of sitting...

I'm not 100%, but I don't think that's a safe assumption.  You'll need to rent in town and then get a ride up to the mountains. If you are staying downtown it's a...

Near Brevard on the Blue Ridge Parkway there are hundreds of good spots.  The top of Black Balsam Knob is very popular for good reason. The treeless summit is just a mile up...

what part of town will you be staying in? a little out of town is Blankets Creek, which is incredible.  I've heard Sixes Pit rents bikes.

I just found out I'm taking the whole family to Sacremento for a wedding this summer.  I'm wondering if my kids can handle the famous Downieville Downhill.  The younger kid will be...
I think you can't decide until you see what your local trail is like wherever you move.  That's what you'll be on after work and most weekends so better to have something...
 
awww man, that's great.  Thank you so much.

My son wants to take his Boy Scout troop on a bikepacking trip. While he's an experienced racer the rest of the kids fitness and ability varies from "Okay" to "total butterball". ...
Yeah, but.... Our local YMCA has a pair of peloton bikes. Its rained for weeks and the trails are closed a lot. I can drop my kiddo off at swim practice ans spin on the Peloton (I like the Guns N Roses ride) for an hour. When the trails dry out I haven't lost any…
