Re: Where should I ride in 2020?

Revelstoke is good and easy access to most of the trails.

Re: Cypress Sex Girl - Alternate Exit

it's funny so few people ride Cypress....  insane trails there but I guess because it's not dumbed down for the masses.

Re: Fun "value" of new vs used; is the juice worth the squeeze?

650b is going to be a tough sell or bike that just got a redo like the Enduro....  tough sell on the 17-19 Enduros.  Lucky to get $3500 on a SWorks

Re: 16"-18" Chainsaw recommendations

The Dewalt works good enough... I find it takes things down better than my gas version.

Re: 16"-18" Chainsaw recommendations

quick Googling:

Stihl E Bar 16" 3/8 .050 For 261 Mount Size 1 lb 9.9 oz

Stihl E Bar 18" 3/8 .050 For 261 Mount Size 2 lb 1 oz

A massive 5oz's.  Not going to feel the difference on a pack.

do you think it's fair to compare the weight of a higher powered saw with a bigger bar and chain to a smaller saw?

the difference between an 18" bar and a 16" bar is maybe an ounce or two.

Re: Trump.

Murica so divided that no matter what the other side does, it won't change their vote.

Re: Your top ten must do rides for this season

Squamish!  So many new trails and rock slabs.

Re: long travel wagon wheelers

My BB is 335mm on a 155mm travel bike and with 165mm cranks I have no issues with pedal strikes.

Re: 16"-18" Chainsaw recommendations

I have the Dewalt 16" e-saw and a Stihl WoodBoss 028 with an 18" bar.  The Stihl doesn't get much use unless I have a lot of cutting.  I have a spare battery for the e-saw which is a pretty much have.

Re: 16"-18" Chainsaw recommendations

disagree....  I have both and the e-saw feels way lighter even with battery on the back of my pack.  I can carry it and work on trail....  not so with a normal saw.  Way more plastic with an e-saw.

Re: 16"-18" Chainsaw recommendations

big fan of e-saws for trail work...  lighter, quieter and less maintenance.  Unfortunately the cost is higher.

Re: EXO + vs Double Down for rear tire

I run 20 psi with DD Assguy and it has plenty of stiffness.  No insert.
