PSA for Squamish Riders

Maybe email sorca or post on the "Squamish bike" fb page. You'd probably reach way more people that way.

Not too sure. A bunch of the photos were linked through Facebook so I guess they expired

That was a delight. Might be the best Chilcotins footage I've seen. Thanks, my stoke quotient needed a boost!

Thanks, it's pretty nuts watching the footage and being able to appreciate the views you only see in your peripheral.

NSMB - 2015 – Mountain Bike Thread (full suspension)

Nice bikes!

Throw a 150mm Pike on that Stumpjumper Evo and a Rock Razor as a rear tire - you´ll love it even more. Had one with this combination and kind of regret letting it go. It is so fast, snappy and fun!

The SPRTN is also fantastic. Loads of carbon =)
And what size front tire is that? Looks like a fatbike =)

Why do people like rock razors? I tried one this summer and found it spun out super easy on any tech climb. It was infuriating.

Skins on Ice

Instead of threadjacking the other skins thread, any tips for ice and skinning?

I'm still a rank amateur and could use all the tips you got.

Lots of edging practice, focus on trying to keep as much skin contact as possible, weight your heels on your risers (don't panic and lean forward) and use ski crampons if it's really bad.

New rear rim time. 30mm too wide?

Chinese carbon is nice for XC/pedally bikes, but not a rear wheel that sees chunky stuff. Not if you want it to last long, anyway…

Funny you say that as I'm riding light bikes 30mm (with dh layup) on my trail bike and I have no qualms riding anything and everything with my wheel set

Squamish 2015 Trail Conditions

You mean throwdown? Seems like it's a work in progress. The first 2 or 3 jumps are done but just dirt after that. Rail the berm hard out of home brew

New to clipless

Well my xt trails lasted about a year and a half before the spring tension went on both pedals and I switched to dx's.

Lights - 2015-16 season (split from the 2014 thread)

From a few pages back IF you have a Bell Super

Some pretty slick CNC'd Go Pro mounts for Solarstorm x2, Magicshine etc which work for the Bell Super factory GP mount.

Found him on MTBR.

I also ordered some go pro handle bar mounts and used these adapters for the SS 2 on the bars.

No more o-rings:)

Installed.

Nice, thanks for the heads up. Just did a bulk order (34 lights for 23 people) for mounts and lights. Will post setup when they arrive.

Another Squamish video

That was really well done. Drone footage on In and Out?? If so - what a nice perspective

Yeah it was in and out during the credits with the drone and the wood ladder drop on intestinal fortitude

Great stuff. Hope she didn't get hurt in the final endo.

Haha no, she's super tough, just the pride. To be fair I roughed in that line quick and it was super soft and steep.

Another Squamish video

Went out with Robin (Wildland media) last week to film my girlfriend Laura. Pretty stoked on the results. Enjoy!

Trans BC Enduro

megan runs a good race (she does the bc [HTML_REMOVED] kr enduro series); i'd have no qualms about doing this event in it's first year. it does sound like good times.

She also does the trans NZ doesn't she?

Tubeless valves favorites?

Had mavic for a while which were good till I lost them switching tubes. Tried valves that came with a set of race face wheels as well as stans valves and had issues with both not seating well (and eventually tightening them so much that they pulled into to inner wall of the rim). I have had no issues with presta valves straight cut out of tubes.
