Noob 4x4ing?

Heres a couple Day trips from van:
Harrison Lake is great for 4x4 newby's, go up the east side from Morris Valley Road (off the Hemlock Mountain road) , amazing views and great picnic and camping at 20 Mile rec site..
Go up the west side from Harrison HotSprings, head towards Sasquatch Provincial Park, keep left uphill on the the gravel (you'll see rec site signs etc) at the turn off into the park.. 11 KM in is Cascade Point its beautiful camping and swimming

Furry Creek is really cool, easy drive up.. hit the gravel road above the golf course and keep going up till you hit the old mine site and mt shear townsite.. its fun to poke around there

Sylvester Road east of Mission has tons of views, gnar, everything you want
You gotta go 15kms or so on pavement then ban its goes gravel and uphill quickly after that You can get into Davis Lake only a few kms past the start of the gravel.. its fun going down to the lake if yer a newby (probably dont try it if its not dry) and you can get into staves east shore, buzz around on hill climbs etc
Note on Sylvester if you dont like guns its probably not a destination of choice lol

should be "if you don't like guns and silly rednecks" for sylvester rd

Devinci Spartan

The Spartan carbon frame seems like really good value right now at $2800. I would prefer to upgrade to a Nomad, but I'm taking a serious look at the Spartan since the exchange rate has pushed Nomad frames above $4000. The Spartan is a bit heavier though, in part due to the aluminum rear triangle, and it has a slightly lower bottom bracket and steeper head tube angle. It looks like it would really excel as an Enduro race bike, but how does it ride on slower, more technical terrain?

It rides better in high bb setting for trails around here. You'll clip your pedals a lot in low.
Rear triangle is part aluminum. Carbon seatstay and alloy chainstay. I think it's just heavier because of its burly construction compared to nomad

Carbon Knolly! Carbon Knolly!

Canadian retail on mojo hd3 is 3600 or so with db inline. On par with nomad and such, I'd say it's reasonable if you compare it to other frames, with exception of devinci spartan(under 3g for carbon)

Five Ten Kestrel

kestrel is really stiff compared to other offerings from fiveten. I'd go feel the shoes before you get one.

Reverb Rebuild - local

I had the exact same problem a couple months back, I heard Cove was doing in-house rebuilds but when I called they said they were sending to SRAM because it was faster (they must have been busy). I also checked with Dunbar (since I live close to them) and same story. Ended up warrantying it through the UK online retailer I bought it from and it was replaced with an entirely new retail unit with me only being out shipping and a 3.5 week wait.

Dunbar suspension tech broke his wrist, cracked elbow and dislocated his shoulder about 4 weeks ago. That's why it was being sent out but he's back wrenching now though. usually 24~48hr turn around

Best place for tubeless tires?

You will be hard pressed to find any shops that carry any selection of 26" tires. MEC carries some, but most other shops keep almost none on the shelves.

especially if you are after 2.0 or 2.1

New Nomad coming?

Maybe in the new one they'll find a way to make the frame-kit cost $4500 Canadian like the V10?

v10 replacing your wilson?
