Re: Sore ankles!

What’s your foot position on the pedals? Try moving your feet forward so the axle is under the arch of your foot?

Downtown bike storage

Its a hassle to find, but some places downtown allow bikes. Read the rules carefully. Then get on strata council so you can head off anyone who tries to put in a no bikes rule.

Hitch rack: Yakima v Thule v Kuat (with dog in rear of car)

1up USA racks are good. Easy to tilt with bikes on.

Warner Lake Floatplane Drop

The Gun Meadows Trail descent is the best part of the Warner Lake Ride. I'd recommend riding out that way on day 1, then climbing Taylor Creek trail to Camel Pass to Lick Creek Trail on Day 2.

If you're staying at Gun Lake, leave a vehicle at the Jewel Creek Trailhead. I can't stress this enough.

Storing bikes upside down/vertically?

I've got three of these:

Held up with these toggle bolts:

The toggle bolts mean you don't have to worry about being centered on a stud. Stagger the bikes vertically so your bars can overlap. The Leonardo hooks aren't perfect for mountain bikes - there's not enough clearance between the wall and the hook to get a big tire through there. MEC used to sell some different hooks that worked better, but I don't see them online now.

Rock Shox recommends pumping the front shock about 10 times before your ride if the bike has been stored vertically. Sometimes if you don't, the shock can do a really rapid compression on an otherwise small hit, sending you OTB.
