Re: Friggin doors. Watch out!

matter of time before that happens on Seymour.  The amount of cars and bikes on that road is astonishing.  They need a bike lane.

Re: E-bike rangers patrolling Seymour

Re: NSMB - 2019 - Full Suspension Bike Thread

Re: Best tech trail to lap over and over on the shore?

Cypress DH trails if you want to go DH fast and learn lines (Meat Sweats, etc).  Seymour and Fromme are far from DH worthy.

Re: What Alu Tubless rims have you've been happy most with

bicyclehub.ca ...  take a look at RaceFace Offset rims as well but I would talk to Dave as he builds and deals with lots of rims everyday.

Re: ebikes on the Shore

DNV goes out and maps ALL the trails and shares it with others.  Fromme and Seymour included.

Were they patrolling darkside or rogue trails on general Seymour?

They can only officially patrol in Provincial Parks boundaries.... TrailForks has where the boundaries are. Going up Old Buck is Parks.

There is a pretty open relationship with Park, DNV and Metro so I wouldn't be surprised if trail knowledge is shared.

Re: ebikes on the Shore

I saw two Park Rangers on ebikes yesterday.  They were going up Old Buck exiting on Deep Cove Lookup and saw them coming down the road on CBC later on.   Looks like they are trying keep the riff raff off the rogue trails.  $115 fines if you get caught.

Re: Inter river bike park

couldn't be any worse than what is there now.  Can't believe that work was acceptable.

Noticed some of the new Creekside trails are on the 2019 map: https://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/-/media/whistler-blackcomb/products/explore-the-resort/activities-and-events/mountain-bike-park/orientation-guide/2019_bike_park_map_final.ashx

This must be Missfire:

can't wait to check that out

how all trails should be....  nice to see less bikepark trails in the bikepark.

Re: Local RockShox Damper Tuning

MRP has a lightweight(is) dual crown fork that's adjustable in travel.

Re: Whistler Trails 2019 (not WBP)

the only way to close a trail is to cover it up....  not everyone uses TrailForks.

Good way to get an idea is scroll back to last year's reports, last year microclimate mid/late June, LOTS mid July

Aye, did have a look at that, but with this years snow pack being a lot shallower I was thinking it might be gtg a little earlier. Then again, I suspect it'll also depend on how much remedial work needs done.

Microclimate is free of snow and running great. No signs that it was closed.

Worca don't tend to put up signs but update trailforks

https://www.trailforks.com/trails/micro-climate/

no idea why the trail is closed... it's snow free, dry and only 1 tree down. If this was the down on the Coast, all the trails would be closed all the time.

Not all of us are on TrailForks.
