Thank you! Now I’ll be able to get this done when I do my shift cable and housing replacement next week!

I have no doubt it was practiced and there was crew. I have no doubt the guy is an amazing jumper. However to call this safe is ignorant. Mistakes can and do happen. Mechanicals can and do happen. It’s a selfish move, plain and simple. These guys and their teams go to extreme lengths to…
Sorry, but this is a jackass move. Putting all of those guys at risk so that you can “show them who’s boss”? If he screws up or has a mechanical failure and crashes into the middle of the peloton, or even just clips one guy it could be serious. I really don’t understand being so…

I’ve also ridden Elm Ridge recently. Easily my new favorite spot in the area! Very well built with excellent trail markings and has a lot to offer.  It’s kind of like Gurney, but much...
100% agree. Super Boost spec will basically guarantee that I’ll never consider that bike.

Title is misleading, they are covering several stories. A 90’s Honda Civic was recovered, nothing about the bike getting recovered.  Too bad, that bike is worth way more than the Civic! The stolen ID...
I tried to warn you what happens when you try and justify horses while fighting bikes... If you’re trying to say someone is proving someone else’s point, you flat out admit that bicycles were not on their minds when writing the rules. Then to assert that no adult would ride a bicycle in the 60’s!…
You completely missed the point... Horses have a much higher potential for damage and problems than ANY mountain bike could ever have. Therefore, if horses are allowed, you sound like an imbecile even trying to argue why bikes can’t be allowed. As for the “no mechanical...” I don’t for one second think they had a…
I don’t think bikes should be on established hiking trails. Hikers and bikes do not mix well, it’s dangerous and a buzz kill for both parties. However, I don’t see why biking specific trails can’t be made in SOME wilderness areas, especially if the local area supports it. A lot of people that foam at…

Salsa Timberjack is another excellent choice, especially after the recent price drops.  Good geometry and takes 27.5+ or 29ers, SLX build comes with a dropper and SLX is a pretty bullet proof...
Depends on how I feel, if I know I'm going to be on the roads at all before and/or after I get to gravel I take my Niner BSB 9 RDO out....
Wow, crazy over the top reaction. Making a ruling like this is NOT good for the sport. Now riders will seriously consider refusing potentially life/limb saving treatment to avoid nonsensical bans.
Before I had my bike rack I had to put my bike in the back of my SUV. I had to take the front wheel off to fit it. Got the bike in...
The DV9 is well above what he was looking to spend based on above comments. I caution on maxing out your budget or over spending on JUST the bike.  There are a lot...
Awesome article! I just got the 29” Enduro 305 Hydra myself and I LOVE them! Amazing engagement and great trail feel. The carbon Enduros would have been sweet but I can’t justify the $$$ it would cost for my riding.
It would depend on your riding style.   The Timberjack is of the newer “Longer Slacker” trail style.  While the Orbea is more of an XC bike.   The longer, slacker Timberjack will handle descents better...
The Chisel will be an XC focused bike as well. Both the Chisel and the Orbea come with 100mm travel forks. Nice and efficient, but if you want to do anything closer...

I really like my Garmin Fenix 5.   Keeps a classic watch look, tough as hell and tracks just about everything. Current sale prices on the non plus Fenix series makes them an almost no-brainer...

I would agree with checking out PNW.   I have two of their droppers and love them. Last gen Bachelor and the new Bachelor.   If I remember correctly, they come with a 3 year warranty.   The...

Pine Bush is a good spot to learn. Easy and helps build up some conditioning.   From there you have a lot of great options to building your skills!  Bethlehem is another great little...
