Yes indeedy. I changed from winter tires to summers yesterday. Might just hit up Frank Zappa's greatest hits later today.

Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.

What type of tires are you using for this type of riding? I have some nobby nics that I am thinking of throwing on my AM bike to replace the Minions I currently have on there now. Trying to make my AM bike more XC friendly so I can do some more Squamish/Whistler XC this summer.

For an all mtn I like fat Albert. Light , snake skin tubeless ready and the front is soft. My hard tail is set up full race, except dropper post and 120 fork. I like racing Ralph or Ardents because I have them. The hard tail is a 29, my other bike is a Nomad. Tired today. Rode to lost lake on the valley trail with the wife. I rode dangerous cretins et al and met her at the lake. Then we parted at the passive house. I did Zappa's, the over to rrti and home along old miller road to function. I heard this one today. Rides start with eating and end with a beer. The do not start with a swim and end with a run. That's just crazy talk.

Your not the only one! I joined in on the WORCA Toonie Thursday race alongside 335 others! That was a great time, mashing through a large chunk of the Zappa Trails!

Actually they are sometimes better after some rain. Very little mud or even puddles.
