Just remembered a ride that i’ve never seen anybody do , but there must have been some that have ridden it and that is , the “South fork road “ Starting at the top of the cliffs overlooking the colo. river in Canyon lands . The road is cut into the cliffs with zero guard…
A word of caution . some of those trails come close to designated wilderness areas and sacred indian and reservation sites . please be respectful of these areas . It’s highly unlikely you will encounter anyone in some of these areas , so it’s a question of being respectful anyway. I won’t say exactly where…
Why bother protecting a metal that doesn’t rust. Bedsides a scratched and dirty bike is less likely to get stolen than a super flashy paint job that screams “ Take Me “ .
 
What i find amusing is that all of this insane high speed descent , jumping , riding on a razors edge etc, is taken as, this has always been Mt Biking. In the beginning , Mt. biking was , riding your bike in the mountains . The wheels remained on the ground as intended ,…
At what point did Mountain biking become a aerial sport? I was “mountain biking” before it was called Mountain Biking. Then i got old and stopped because of back problems. Now i’m back in the saddle with the help of my mt. E bike and it’s great , but i’m still wondering when mountain biking…
Rubbish. This is just more Humans Know More Than Nature arrogance. If humans are so smart then why didn’t they create the planet or even know HOW and why it even exists. Humans are the 100% dependent guests on this tiny thing floating in the universe. Now they want the host do do as they…

What passes for Mt. biking today is a far cry from what it was fifty years ago. I use to ride my old steel framed schwinn in the hills of california in the 1950s and beyond. I guess you could call that mt. biking . ???? In those days we rode for the fresh air…
My friends and i “ Recover “ at a cafe with a nice espresso or coffee and a slice of black forest cake. (<:
Not believable . piss poor clips of the photo shopped bear Click bait trash video.
Trying to distinguish oneself in the Mt. bike tire market is a bit laughable. Arranging little rubber bumps on a circular surface and expecting something really different and unique from manufacturer to manufacturer is silly. Only the pros and experienced sport riders are going to notice an appreciable difference and even then , it may…
This lock is the epitome of good marketing coupled with a gullible public. Actually gullible may be waay too nice . More like willful ignorance on a galactic scale. True, the manufacturer states that it is only to be used for a quick stop in a store and its only meant as a mild deterrent…
One more marketing scheme trying to create a specific attire where none is needed. I’ve worn the same thing while riding a bike since i was four ,( 73 now) cut off shorts , Converse All Stars and a T shirt. This kind of s#$t is laughable.????
Heres an idea on how to control your fear- Don’t ride your bike downhill at break neck speeds. Keep your tires on the ground where they belong and you should be just fine.
Absurd. The people that will buy this tire will be the riders that live in a world of microscopic difference as in “ my tires have a one mm difference in lug position to my old tires . ???????????? Waste your money fools. A really skilled rider can blow by you on tires that are…

commented on Hardtail vs Full Suspension Mountain Bikes
 
If you are not a downhill Kamakazi then hardtails will do . Most riders don’t need a full suspension bike , but buy them anyway because they look cool and give the rider a kind of bikers prestige. I’ve been riding a long long time ( 73 now) and have witnessed the evolution of the…
