What's up everybody? Just wanted to say hi and say what awesome trails you guys have. Yesterday was my first time hitting the North Shore, and man do you have have some sweet trails up here.
I rode Fromme and managed to hit 7th secret (x2), expresso, lower pipeline, lower oilcan, floppy bunny, leppard, crinkum cranium and kirkford. I loved it!!! It was awesome to ride properly technical trails again. What you guys have is absolutely amazing. All of the rock rolls, skinnies, and tight corners are superb. I haven't had this much fun on my bike in a while. I think 7th secret was my favorite, followed up by espresso. But honestly every single trail was sweeeeeet.
I've got to wander though, how many brake pads, rims and tires do you guys go through a season? I've found myself to be using my brakes a lot more here than on my regular trails. Also, picked a few bad lines and heard some rims strikes, but thankfully no flats or dents (thanks tubeless!). I can only imagine what my rear rim would look life if I came up more often. Speak of that, what tires do you guys run out back? My well used semi-slick Nobby Nic was struggling here for sure.
Anyway, thanks again for having such great trails and sharing them with others!! I can't wait to come back and have a blast again.
