Side Track!!!!

I had my digicam in my pack, but was riding solo and couldn't force myself to stop and take scenery shots. :)

Head down freight train and take your pick of gg's or down bear cub until you hit mid station, then back onto freight train past containers until you reach the fork. You will see a new run cut with a sign that says "Side Track" beside No Duff, Freight train and Duffman. Enjoy.

For the drops, get some speed. They are mini drop/gap/step down's and fun. It's a very enjoyable trail providing you've got a lot of speed. :)

The wknd 23,24 .... sunny and hot !

It was good today, until I did a little bail.

Maybe someone on here saw it, because there was a few guys around.

Duffman before it merges into GT, there's that rolly face on the right handside, anyways, I wasn't really on my game and just lost it .. went flying into the creekbed where the two trails merge over the bars headfirst into a pile of boulders.

Thought I was toast. Not even a scratch. Someone was looking out for me above. Nearly sh*t my shorts. :)

Other than that, smooth smooth smooth. And lots of people.

Can't wait until tmrw.

Say hi if ya pass me. 05 Aline with wavy rotors. I'll be riding with my bro-in-law (just back, sort of from a bad injury) and my sis starting out.

"Trails find you when you are ready"

When time lets me, I'll go and ride the huckwagon up. Hopefully with a map and some munchies, I'll find my way down solo and have fun while I'm at it.

I love Whistler, but I miss the days when I used to explorer trails with buddies.

Unfortunately for me, I've never been to the shore.

Fortunately, I now have time. Be it winter, but what the heck.

I agree though.

Trails find you when you are ready.

Knowing my luck, I will end up on Boogieman for my 1st ride (so I hear it's the balls). :)

Tubeless on Alex's

Thanks for the feedback.

Do you think the Alex 32 BH's are decent rims ?

The back just looks awful.

specialized paintjob poll

Maybe the thought came to one of the designer's heads when he was sitting on the crapper.

I like 'em but am impartial to the paint job. I'm looking ahead on the trail and not what's between my legs, so I really don't care what it looks like as long as it does the job.

Tubeless on Alex's

I'm going to grab a pair of Nevegal 2.5's and go tubeless.

I'd like to go tubeless and run the cheapman's kit with Stan's sealant.

http://www.nsmb.com/gear/tubeless_12_04.php

I have a set of Alex 32 BH rims that are ok but the rear needs truing and spokes are loose as a goose.

Do you guys think Nevegal's and the Alex rims will work together ?

I went through 2XC and 7 DH tubes this season and am just tired of them. Would like to try something else, if not just for a change. :)

The wet boys poll

So the question is here.

It will cost me the same roughly to get a michi 16/32 or a set of nevegal's.

The nevegal's should run me into or through next summer, right ? Or not ?

What about the michi 16's ?

I know you're going to ask me how much I ride. To be honest, I'm a shore virgin and will be most likely heading up at least once a week or twice if I can find people to go ride with (or just solo).

I know have the time and a decent bike to ride through the winter. And no injuries :)

The wet boys poll

I may be able to get a deal on the following set only :

Front . Michelin 16's 2.2
Rear . Michelin 24's 2.5

Would that be an ideal combo for the shore this winter ? Or would the 2.2 in the front be 'too' skinny ?

I'm 150lbs, somewhat decent rider and riding a 50lbs '05 A-line.
