War in the Woods!

This thread should be titled "Asshole pushes Asshole, yelling ensues".

I don't think this has anything to do with "trail runners", "hikers", or "mtn bikers". It is people with bad manners, no common courtesy and a people with a big chip on their shoulder.

It is my opinion that both parties suck.

Pack your lights folks

Loader light; lol. Is it true he rides faster at dusk?

It is true, but the real truth is, the more time you spend riding in Loader Light, the better rider you become. Riding in Loader Light has made me a faster/better rider, night rides when he says no lights until he is ready for them, you become more adept to feeling the terrain and riding instinctively.

That said, you still need to carry your lights, just maybe leave them off for an extra 10 minutes, it will improve you skills.

Live tree cut out on Good Sir Martin

That there is 95% fall line water erosion.

That is a lot of braiding as well, remember, there used to be a skinny along the left of the trail that blocked the "braid option". The actual trail was more defined and limited when the skinny's were still there (not saying they didn't need to be cut out, that one was getting pretty sketchy).

Live tree cut out on Good Sir Martin

More words of wisdom from the person who thinks that all new trails suck, and states that (the trail) Digger is in awesome shape and a perfect example of sustainable trail building :D

(Digger last night. Spot the trail…..)

Out to the right of the log at the far right of the picture, then back over the bottom of it and over the tree roots on the right side. That was the hardest part of the trail before, now it's even harder with all the looseness. :)

Want the gnar, go get some….

Fromme 2015 Conditions

Boundary trail.
For wood that is over a decade old. It is in excellent shape! Im certain that the few rotted stringers can be replaced leaving the decks in place.
Any one have the permit? Fixing wood is much easier and longer lasting than digging a huge pit and covering trail with golden sand.
Tweeter totter had that fresh cedar smell.
Thank you for the new feature!!!!!!
Cleaned every thing!
Trail is in amazing shape.

Karen, who did a lot of the standing woodwork, is working on it again, the new stuff is her work as well.

On that note, I would have to thank the Gin Martini.

Jerseys 'n Stank

Use powdered detergent, there is a specific ingredient in liquid detergents (not sure which one) that holds the scent into nylon fabrics. I was talking to somebody from Sugoi about this, it made sense to me, as my jerseys and bibs started to have this issue when I changed to liquid detergent.

Cambodia decommissioned

What is the official status of the trail. Simply that features are decomm'd or we should not be in the area with bikes or hiking.

The unofficial official stance of mountain biking.

Best all rounder front tyre

I am curious about this as well. Has anyone tried running the DHR II on the front?

The DHRII has a much more loose/drifty feel than the DHF or HRII. It will work great on the front, but you have to commit to cornering, it will break loose if you don't lean it over all the way.

If you are not aggressive when cornering, you will be better off with a HRII up front.

Marzocchi to close for good??

"Tenneco Inc. (TEN) said that it plans to discontinue its Marzocchi motor bike fork suspension business and its mountain bike business, and liquidate its Marzocchi operations.", By RTT News, July 22, 2015, 10:07:00 AM EDT

What did I miss here?

I guess it is more reading between the lines, it's more about what they don't say here.

"Tenneco intends to assist its motor bike customers with the transition of current production to an alternative supplier and expects to complete the closure by the end of 2015."

Tenneco still has to provide warranty and service for the Marzocchi products for 2 years.

Marzocchi to close for good??

The Mtn Bike business was for sale, they had a descent number of suitors (around half a dozen), if you read the article carefully, it sounds like there could be a transition over to new ownership for Mtn Bike products.

the biggest mistake in mountain biking....

The "BIGGEST MISTAKE" in mountain biking is asking STUPID QUESTIONS, like this one. Thinking that any answer would make sense, or have any real impact on what is happening now.

Yeah, I said it….
