When my knees go I'll be at my LBS the next day to buy a full squish e-bike.
Great work Cam!
The Calgary Rider's thread over on Pinkbike and a Calgary Riders' Group on Facebook are e-sleuthing the heck out of
this. https://www.pinkbike.com/forum/listcomments/?threadid=246&pagenum=1336#commentid6492530 (click to the last few pages of the thread)
Did you see the Strava ride logs for the same time period or the update from the Greater Bragg Creek Trail Society? Specifically, they couldn't find any barbed wire.
I couldn't even find any in southern Oregon, never mind northern Cali. It truly is the unicorn of beers.
Lineups for breakfast places are too long in Bend.
We do all right for riding here in Alberta.
So, who do people think is going to enforce the CMHC's rules? Re-purpose RCMP from Vancover gangland murders to hide in the woods and ticket hikers? CMHC office drones expected to trade in their office clothing for gore-tex and hide in the woods waiting for a MTB'er?
Looking at this from the outside it looks like bluster related to fear of litigation rather than a real attempt to close off an area to use.
For me avoiding skinnies and ladders has everything to do with knees and flow. Why interrupt the rhythm of your ride (tech or flow) to navigate something that could blow your knee on a janky dismount? The risk v. reward just isn't there for me anymore so I'm happy to see these things disappear.
Trek doesn't really want to sell frames, but if you really want it they'll overcharge you for one.
A friend thought that if ever I were being held against my will my secret alarm sentence would be "Fatbking is fun.". The more you knock it, the harder you make it to enjoy another type of riding.
With adjustable geometry on some of the Fatbikes out there it's possible to kill many birds with 1 stone. Fatbike for winter/wet and use it as a 27.5+ for faster days. 120mm air cartridge along with an RC3 damper upgrade in your Bluto and you're off to the races.
If a West Cost hardtail I'd go for a Truelove. My '98 DeKert Team ST had a wicked pull to the left. Only bike I've ever owned I couldn't ride hands free.
I like the tent idea but what about something made right here in Canada?
The Watershed bar is an "ok" way to wrap up a ride in Squamish. For a "great" wrap up you should head to the Howesound brewpub.
