The new flow trail in Squamish, Meadow of the Grizzly. People hate this one, I liked it.

Re: demo'd a plus bike

Potential downsides would be that the thin sidewalls (to keep the weight down) are easy to cut.
Not as much support when cornering. They'll roll over when cornering hard.

They've got killer rolling speed and grip though.

There's a new Turbo Lev on mtbr that has a claimed 15% more power than the previous model. 

I see where this is going

Yup.. that and modifications. They're motorbikes.

Re: 2017 South Chilcotin Trail Conditions Thread

26t would be alright, but by the time the grade requires you to be in that gear you maybe wheeling up the hill.

I shoot in protune and underexpose a bit and then a bunch of magic in post :)

Do you use PP or AE?  If so, I don't suppose you'd divulge the effects you use to bring it up to light?

I'm using davinci resolve to edit and grade. It's very good and free.

Good job!

Any tips on how you get such a good picture when shooting in high sun?  The shadow and sun wreak havoc on my vids.  Do you manage that with a simple camera setting(s) or do you do it in post-processing?

Re: BCpov

Road is not great, but I got up with my honda element. My buddy got up in his subaru. There were a couple mud pits to drive around, but I imagine it's quite dry right now.
