No trail is the same as it once was; the only constant is change.

And, IMO, that's a good thing!

I would like to take this opportunity to point out that fasteners have a lifespan.

The Colorado isn't particularly "oversized".

4-9pm tomorrow at Cranked in Whistler to remember Chad, share stories, and love life.

Preserving Gnarly Trails - Oct. 16, 2019, 10:50 a.m.

Thanks Andrew. Between Imonator and Boundary, we've been working hard lately to ensure that theres still cedar skinny trails to hike your VPS Shore up to (in jeans, of course), than Hans and Hilde can ride when they visit from Germany, and groms to get their first taste of The Shore on. 

It ain't easy to ensure theres adequate opportunity for everyone 10" wheeled run bikes to Thomas Vanderham, but we try our best within the constraints of geology, ecology, environment, and geography. 

Now then; about that zero sum game bit... Clever foreshadowing to the 2020 push out of my camp?

That bicycle has a distinct lack of pivots, tho.

Building On Boundary Trail (An Heirloom Trail) - Oct. 1, 2019, 12:22 p.m.

Thanks 'Drew. 

Having just finished rebuilding a ton of the features on Imonator, and now working on this, the NSMBA is working hard to ensure the Shore keeps its heritage and everyone from the Tiny Mechanic, to the guy pushing his VPS Shore up Fromme in Jeans in 2020, to Gunter visiting from Germany gets to ride some cedar.

Building On Boundary Trail (An Heirloom Trail) - Oct. 1, 2019, 12:14 p.m.

I mean, its a reasonably well defined term?

"able to be maintained at a certain rate or level."

You can modify it beyond that as it specifically pertains to trails, but I think its colloquially fairly well understood. As Karen meant it "this trail will be generally the same, and not become a giant creek, as long as I'm around".

Or you could get way more detailed and lay out a Limits of Acceptable Change framework? 

I hear what you're saying to a degree, trails have impact on the environment by their very definition. But that doesn't mean they can't be "sustainable" in the short or long term.

Riding the North Shore's Nastiest 'Legal Trail' with Jeff Kendall-Weed - Sept. 30, 2019, 12:15 p.m.

Quimper is awesome! Would love a tour guide.

What should I do when all my Bike Shit gets Stolen? - Sept. 27, 2019, 8:38 a.m.

MORE DOG PHOTOS.

Uncle Dave! I hate tossing broken stuff. Where can I get things repaired instead? - Sept. 18, 2019, 11:22 a.m.

You're gonna be famous!

Maxxis Assegai DD & EXO+ Tire Review - Sept. 17, 2019, 8:23 a.m.

Agreed. MG DD is a bit of an anchor. Its a penalty I'll pay in the winter when its wet, but hard to justify in the summer.

This is NOT a fast rolling tire. If you're rolling down pavement, you can hear it turning energy into noise.

Ending the Season on a High Note – Snowshoe World Cup DH 2019 - Sept. 10, 2019, 1:44 p.m.

I do quite like the throwback XC framesets they're doing right now. 

But, I have zero use for one.

Ending the Season on a High Note – Snowshoe World Cup DH 2019 - Sept. 10, 2019, 12:28 p.m.

Its returning to the great years in the late 90's, early 2000s. 

Real coverage makes such a massive difference; more fans means more money from brands for teams, which means better support for racers.... which means better racing, which means more fans...... etc. Loving it. 

I hope next year's Cannondale is blue and yellow.
