Pay parking on fromme

Thanks, I've never climbed up that way.

Are you allowed to park on McNair/Hoskins near Mtn View, or do you park on Coleman and ride the road to Mtn View park then ascend the trails. Will try that next time.

You can park on Hoskins below Coleman and ride up to the park that way.

Another mountain bike injury on Seymour?

I am also in the older and more breakable camp and on a 27.5. Funny how features look different to each of us. To me the roll looks sketchy, but a little pop to get over the lip and down to the landing seems easier (notice I didn't say launch, as I really don't launch it. I doubt my back tire gets more than a few inches off the ground)

Whatever works and gets you done the mountain with a smile on your face.

I find reading stuff like this fakes me out a bit. When I last rolled this drop on my 27.5 hardtail I didn't think twice about it. Now when I look at it it is mindfucking me even though it's not gnarly at all really. Another thing that gets me now is the teeter on pipeline where the guy died. I've ridden it like 100 times but ever since I don't try it anymore. I always start thinking, what if I get on it and it doesn't come down and I have to bail off. Maybe I'm just getting old…

Haven't ridden floppy since November but when I did, I rolled the entrance drop and it didn't feel too sketch. Has it eroded a lot over winter? Guess I'll just look next time up.

I hike Fromme to find new to me trails that I don't notice when on the bike. :P

Shore Climbing Routes

When you get to executioner, head down it for about 200 meters. You will see the last section of "No Quarter" on your left. Goes right up to the road. It sux big time because its root city. Sucks the life right out of you.

I have been climbing it twice a week and it is getting easier. Really should be called the "Endless suck."

I believe it is called "endless suck" on Strava lol

Minion EXO TR Stans seepage

This is what it looks like right now. Some new very tiny spots. Pressure feels the same.

Minion EXO TR Stans seepage

I never had any leakage when it was set up new. I refreshed the sealant at the end of Decemeber, but I'll probably add another 50 ml prior to the next ride and see what happens. All the seepage is approximately equidistant from the rim, so I suspect it is indeed from running low pressure which compresses the tire at this point. It's just hard for my OCD tendencies to see this lol

Minion EXO TR Stans seepage

I noticed today that my Minion DHF EXO 3C TR rear tire has small spots of stans all over the sidewall. I wiped it down and sure enough the spots reappear confirming that the sealant is coming through the sidewall. I can't find any spots on the tread area and nothing appears to be coming from the bead. The tire has just under 300 km on it! It doesn't seem to have lost pressure. Is this normal for these tires? Anything I need (can) to do to stop it? Front is fine, so I suspect is has something to do with all the flexing the rear goes through on the hardtail has caused micro holes in the sidewall.

Disposing of used degreaser?

It definitely kills grass. I had the yellow spot to prove it. If you dump it on the concrete, you will end up with the grease leaving behind a stain. If you don't like your neighbour, toss it over the fence. :P

Wet weather riding

Hopefully people get that loam and duff are two different things, as pointed out by the TORCA article. Loam in the wet! Duff in the dry!

Considering most people seem to label the duff trails as "loamers", I don't hold out much hope lol

Flat pedals

Spank Oozy Pedal

I'm running these too, but find I have to pull them apart and grease the bushing in them quite often.

90,000 Lumen light

No man, you mount it to Grouse mountain and light up the entire shore.

Think of the froggies!
