    I can confirm @Jersey Skier can hold his own on the slopes and he also offers up great MTB deals as well.

    Thanks guys.

    Spent the afternoon wandering around the woods looking for my lungs. I think I left them here last season.

    Note: Flat or clipped in, the line is a little to the right.

    Hee hee hee... "...back in the day?...." still riding em for my commute! LMAO Too many diff shoes needed for rain, mud, snow, cow manure.......several sets can dry while I wear another the next day............ if you ride enough, for commuting dry, clean shoes trumps pedaling efficiency any day..........

    I used toe clips, but I didn't ride much back then. My real foray into MTB wasn't until I moved to UT in June of 2014. I attempted a ride near Snowbasin on a crappy Trek intro bike and it was NOT pretty. Went and bought my current (soon to be sold) Trek a few weeks later and haven't looked back!

    Got out for an hour on my steed today. Technically very easy but played with gearing and the dropper post which was fun. Oh and I got the Kuat rack assembled and installed all by myself yesterday.

    Yet another person waxed poetic with me Saturday about the + size tires. He said it makes the outer diameter of the tire almost the same as a 29er, to which I responded that this must increase the wheelbase esp. on smaller bikes, to which he said no, not necessarily.

    I dunno. They still look ridic to me, but it's silly to buy a bike you want to last at least 5 years without considering whether the 27.5+ size tires are a fad vs a universal improvement. I thought 29" was a fad when it first started ...

    I still think it's funny that you lot are calling them 27.5 when in fact they are smaller than my 27s :D

    ..which just makes it funnier, you know.

    And as to fads, shall we talk bottom bracket so-called "standards" yet :D :D?
