2014 Cove Hustler 650BJ

Most of us ride our bikes for fun. Sure the names of the different Cove models might seem a bit childish but that's also adding to the fun of it. As been stated already, there are many other bikes out there with non-offensive names for all of you prudes.

:fu:

40th birthday ride(s)

I plan to spen my 40th in whistler this coming year, but I might have to wait a week or so after my b-day for the bike trails to open depending on the snow (my b-day is at the end of April). Ten years ago I was lucky enough that the opening weekend for the season was also my b-day weekend.

Shoes

I bought my size 14 5.10's at Steed in the spring. Phone around to all the local bike shops.

I've owned Vans in a size 14 over the years, now they might not have been the exact moddel that you're wanting but I do know that Vans does even make size 15. You could always drive down south to Mount Vernon (20 minutes south of Bellingham on the I5) and go to the Vans Outlet store.

woodlot questions

holy F what a couple of retards. how can you not know it's a mtnbike trail? i grant you the start is fairly wide but it gets narrow pdq.

maybe it's time for some signage, like they have on vedder.

Even with the signs on Vedder the quads have still been on the trail recently.

Bike Rescuer pleads guilty on 36 counts

Good lord!! I just realized why I haven't been reading/posting here much recently. After reviewing the last 5 pages, it was like reading a Pinkbike thread pissing contest, only the posters in question are older, "more mature(?)," and better financed. Aside from older, I may have to argue the other traits.

Way to bring the mountain bike community together by talking shit to each other like a Pinkbike BMX thread….CLASSIC!!

I totally agree :ohthedrama:

Tubeless - downsides?

I've only tried the ghetto tubeless. I was happy with it untill I had a hole in my rear tire that didn't reseal and sprayed the latex up my ass and back. The stuff doesn't wash out very well so I went back to tubes because I didn't want to wreck any more of my riding gear (well not realy wrecked but it always looks really dirty even when clean).

I don't think that this is a problem with propper tubeless setups. AS far as I understand it, the propper tubeless tires and rims don't need any liquid latex, Slime, Stans or any other sealing type of goop to work.

Wet weather goggles: Is closed cell foam option worthwhile?

Okay I was just on the Oakley site reading about the closed cell foam and it should still breath. This would be good for the middle of the summer when it's extremely dusty, seeing as how fine dust particles can make their way through the regular kind of foam.

Wet weather goggles: Is closed cell foam option worthwhile?

Dual lenses are good for this time of year but I have no idea about the closed cell foam. If air can't pass through the goggles (such as they don't breath) then you'll definitely fog up. Keep in mind that your face will sweat so you need ventilation. I've seen some goggles that have a tiny fan built into them to prevent fogging.
