streaming nhl

Have a friend/family member with cable? You can watch TSN and Sportsnet if you have a cable subscription. Just get their info.

This is what I do. I would never pay $25 a month for just Sportsnet now. That's just fucking greedy, Rogers!!! If it were $10 I would subscribe if I needed to. It doesn't even include games that are on SNVancouver for Christ sake!

Obscure North Shore Hiking Trails

I think those are caches for SAR supplies. Not 100% on that though.

Radio repeaters as a well

Shore Climbing Routes

I won't even look at thoses times lol. I'll just take making it to the top and having enough energy to ride down! You know you haven't been riding enough when your 14 month old rear 3C Minion still has side knobs. :(

Minion SS for the shore

Yeah, grabs better on climbs and descents than other semi slicks I've tried. I'm not on the shore though.
I've also run the Slaughter, Rock Razor, and am currently on the Riddler. In the wet there is a lot less control going on with a semi slick, as in none, but like others said you kinda learn to enjoy it.

I think the ideal semi slick has yet to be made. Maxxis has got the casing, weigh and size, but the profile is fucked- makes leaning in vague and sketchy. Slaughter needs to shave weight. Rock Razor is too big and thin feeling. Riddler is right size and has a great profile, but the casing is thin and flimsy, yet heavy, somehow.

Aggressor rear is another option, if you want something fast, but still need to occasionally stop. I've been really impressed with this tire.

Aggressor is the other tire I'm looking at. Might be a much better choice for me.

Minion SS for the shore

I might go for it, could be fun. We probably won't get any real rain until at least September anyways! The last semi-slick I ran was a Lopes Bling Bling, which had DHF side knobs and tiny little square centre tread. It was pretty fun but at the time I didn't ride any shore trails. I mostly drifted it around the gravel in Pacific Spirit Park hahaha.

Minion SS for the shore

I ran the slaughter last year and liked it. It all depends on if you're the type that likes to skid into corners or not. If you're a drifter/skidder then you'll hate it.

I'm certainly not a drifter or a skidder.

Minion SS for the shore

I'm really getting tempted to try a Minion SS in the back with a DHF out front this summer. I mostly ride Fromme and Seymour. Anybody here tried one of these yet? Will I regret it on rock and wood or when things get steep? Does any moisture = sketch city?

29er tires

Ikon 2.35 Exo tr 3c on the back is providing thrilling speed and climbing so far in the dry conditions. A lot quicker than the purg I was running. Curious how it will do when thngs get wet.

I bet you wear it out before we get any significant rain here again. :-/

broken carbon bar

This thread has popped up just as I moved my brake levers! I run a Joystick bar and when I moved the levers I have noticed that there are marks in the part of the bar with the grey decals. I think it's just cosmetic in the decal and clearcoat as I run the levers fairly loose. There is no mark where there is no decal. Am I screwed?

Tubeless...such a pain in the ass sometimes.

I saw a guy doing the stan's shake at a gas station the other day. Anybody who passes by who doesn't know what's going on must think they're a nutter. :P

2016 - Fiver Series

thanks for that; there was one particularly glaring straight line bushwhack that i saw developing the last time i was down. can't comprehend the mentality of people who do that, but they're out there evidently.

STRAVA

lol

I'm still hoping for a climbing trail attached to Bobsled to make a nice little loop.
