Sex Girl - Cypress

So stoked to finally find and ride the "S" skinny before it gets cut down for luxury houses.

Would be nice if companies either reduced the ST length in their Large frames or increased the FC of their medium frames.

Would be nice if companies either increased the ST and HT length in their small frames or decreased the FC of their medium frames.

Re: Cypress Upper Lands Survey is out - IMPORANT IF YOU CARE ABOUT CYPRESS

Silly question, but what is considered the first switchback? Are we talking Brutus or Meat Sweats?

Your rusty equals a lot of folk's good day. Well done.

Thank you!

The audio on this clip makes me feel like I am literally in your helmet

Also, first post in years.

My camera is mounted directly over the chin guard vent so you get that ASMR experience lol.

Re: Rock left hander on cbuster

I rode this for the first time a few weeks ago and had the exact same thoughts lol. Not something I want to try in the wet for my first time.

Imonator - Mt. Fromme

A little rusty compared to last year's GoPro contest entry, but decent.

Well it certainly gets the job done! I might have to break down and get a new Go Pro. Excellent demonstration of how to ride that trail.  I'm usually on my hardtail and MUCH slower, but your line choices are incredible.  That drop to flat over the steep ramp was incredible..

That drop is but one example of why I don't ride a hardtail lol.

Awesome riding.  Love that trail.  

Love the stability of your video.  Are you using a gimbal or in camera stabilisation?

I use a Hero 7 with Hypersmooth mounted to my chin bar. Get's the job done and I don't have to deal with buying/wearing/setting up a gimbal on a chesty mount.

Ned's Atomic Dustbin

Ned's is not something I ride often, maybe once every two years, but I've ridden it twice in the past few weeks and have to say that it's pretty fun in its own way.

Re: fenders

Kinetik had some Mudhuggers in stock last time I checked. I bought a front fender for the MTB last year and then picked up a F/R set for my cross bike a few weeks ago.

Re: CBC - what’s happening?

Posted by: skooks

I received this in an update e-mail from Metro Van this morning.  It's interesting and disconcerting that there is no mention of NSMBA involvement in this trail planning, I wonder why?

LSCR East Area Trails

Metro Vancouver is continuing to implement recommendations from the 2018 Trails Strategic Plan. This month, we have begun working with LEES+Associates and IMBA (International Mountain Biking Association) Canada to specify upgrades for CBC and Cabin trails. Like all trail projects in the LSCR, this work aims to minimize impacts to sensitive ecosystem areas, such as wetlands and old growth forest stands. We also recognize there is room for improvements to the user experience for mountain bikers in particular, and will be working to retain the character of classic trails while making them appealing for contemporary riders. We plan to continue to focus resources on the Mt. Seymour area of our trail network in the coming years. Make sure to watch this newsletter for future updates and ways to participate!

FML if they're going to redevelop the rest of CBC into a green flow trail like they did with that one section. Also FML if they touch Cabin at all.
