Trail dogs are cool, but what is with people wrapping up their dog's shit in bags and leaving it on the side of the trail. Is dog shit that toxic to the environment ? Seems to me preserving it in a bag is worse, then just lettings it rot in the trees.
"CBC [HTML_REMOVED] Cambodia: NSMBA submitted plans to Metro for both, not permitted to work on either"
Why would an organization such as NSMBA be denied working on a trail like CBC? (I'm in the camp that likes that trail a lot)
"Dale's: Metro has identified as a priority. Goal: a full connected route of CBC, TNT, Dales, Forever After"
Isn't that mostly there ? besides the lack of bridge over the creek on cabin trail ?
Just came back to IOS after a few years of Android, love it, don't miss Android at all. Simply don't have the time or care to fuck around with my phone. I'd agree that it's not as tweak-able as the Android, but everything I need is there and it just works.
Would say that apple does a better job of supporting their hardware over the longer term for OS upgrades. Your kind of at the mercy of your hardware vendor for providing updates, and unless you want to play around with Cyangenamod.
I've owned a number of forks ranging from Manitou 1 to Monster T, but also including 32mm Z1, older Pike, Revelation and Reba and I wouldn't say that they feel flexy, it's just that 34mm and 36mm forks feel a bit stiffer. I'm building up a 'hack' full suspension 26er and will probably go with a 150mm 32mm fork again, mainly because I can't justify the cost of the likes of a 36. If you are going to be hitting things hard though, I'd pony up for something bigger though to minimise the dreaded fork CSU creaking.
probably close to a thread violation - but I've a 2013 Fox 34 Float 150 CTD for sale, fork looks brand new, just had the upgraded dampers installed as part of the Fox recall.
so park and ride downtown from Kensington on the Greenway but would like to try some other routes
whats the Burnaby Mountain urban trail or even the TCT through burnaby mountain like
riding a cross bike
I think the TCT on Burnaby mountain includes that climb up from Barnette Highway - it kills me with all the granny gear I can get on my mountain bike. Was never able to get up it without pushing on my cross bike.
Big tree laying across bottletop. Will require some chainsaw work to get it out. It's about halfway down the trail, maybe 20 feet down from the tight rocky corner.
Also big thanks to the folks who put the new bridge on forever after. Got to hit it first, and then do the ride of shame past all the awesome folks who were walking back after finishing it up. Was a great reminder to donate to the nsmba trail fund.
Thanks everyone! Will keep an eye out next time I'm up in Whistler.
Anyone recommend a LBS that carries a more then a minimal amount of kid sized equipment ?
(Specifically would like to find a pair of five ten shoes ) but Jerseys, Shorts, etc would be a bonus.
(Should qualify that with an age range - 7 to 12)
Tree down on Sticks And Stones, first stretch going from west to east. Moved it off the trail. Only posting because this stupid tree tried killing me when it fell down last night. Missed me by --[HTML_REMOVED] [HTML_REMOVED]-- this much. (Which translates to about a foot from my rear wheel). Seriously scared the shit out of me, and killed my mojo.
Unfortunately it got me thinking about how stupid it might be to be riding in the dark, foggy rain by myself when no one else is out.
Fortunately, I'm a slow learner and will probably be out again next week. :)
