  1. Past hour
  2. Yes, with success. One of my favorite places to shop for parts actually. Then friggen Trail Features give the game away earlier this week now everyone knows. Look at the amount and quality of photos they provide. If the thing has a scratch they probably took a picture of it. I snagged an older pristine hard tail from them this year. It must have been some old stock a shop was clearing out because it came without a single scratch. It was exactly as advertised boxed as a new bike would. I put the first scratch on it cutting a zip tie off. http://protestedgear.com/ Seems to do mostly the same thing but is maybe more roadie stuff if you happen to swing that way.
  3. Yeah, I can understand that (even though I loved the inner 40 stuff). I was pretty underwhelmed with the Slaughter Pen stuff. But Kessler was great!...and Coler Park too! -CJB
  4. Today
  5. I think Mr _nuts doesn't dig on machine cut flow stuff. I don't think the inner trails are radically different than the outer loop. The ledges can be done as part of the outer loop and that is something lots of people like. I imagine @Big_pappa_nuts would like Kessler and Slaughter Pen better.

    Texas Parks are Being Loved to Death

    Inks Lake Sp, and Guadalupe River SP to be specific along with a bunch of other parks are either in the middle of or scheduled in the next year to have completely new bath houses/restrooms in the parks. Inks lake and Guadalupe River specifically bulldozed at least some of the restrooms and started building fresh, completely new ones.
  7. I've been biting my tongue through these last few comments. While I completely understand "quality" single track can be subjective, Teamsloan's comment is spot on. -CJB

    I'll help... "This spot usually had three lines A ) the skinny past the tree B ) drop to the smooth path to the left and climb back up C ) most of the time you could go around the tree to the right (was usually blocked during events so riders had to use some actual skill). I am thinking about replacing that tree with an 8 inch steel pipe filled with concrete." ...again...B ) drop to the smooth path to the left and climb back up ...B ) drop to the smooth path to the left and climb back up ...B ) drop to the smooth path to the left and climb back up ...B ) drop to the smooth path to the left and climb back up There was a "b" line that was perfectly ridable without the technical exposure. I've ridden all three lines, but I normally "chicken out" (my opinion of my own reaction) and ride the "b" line. It sucks that this line was sanitized. I appreciate your rant CXAGENT.

    There could be signage at the parking lot, and redundantly along the trail, clearly stating who to contact regarding needed trail work and suggestions for modification. As well as clearly stating that nobody is to do work on the trail without approval from the steward(s) prior. Then again, the sort of folks that do this are about as likely to read the signs as folks are to read the OP stating how there already were 3 lines to choose from in this particular instance. People, are a problem.
  10. Sounds like you did the main loop, which is mainly just plain old school XC trail. It gets you in the middle of the woods without actually being in way out BFE. The mileage is awesome, but its low on tech. The connecting trails throughout is the fun stuff. You pretty much did the equivalent of riding only the the main trail of BCGB.
  11. Just found this website and looks like they sale some factory blemished stuff and was wondering if anyone has bought from them with or without success?

    In reading this thread and the links, I am stuck by the confusion. It appears to me that the confusion was not an accident. ARR was recently approached to support a lobbying effort to get the sporting goods tax money dedicated to parks. The legislature keeps raiding that money for anything/everything but parks.

    I think this should read - "Austin created more public land in the the last 20 years than either the state of federal governments. In fact, Texas leads the nation in local ballot initiatives to invest money in green space and lands the public cannot use." The Balcones Canyonlands Preserve and the City of Austin Water Quality Protection Lands both qualify as 'local ballot initiatives that created public lands' and they should be considered 'green space'. But parks??? Not hardly. There is some very limited change in how the public is allowed to use that land. But most are fenced off and marked "no Trespassing". After dealing in a much more positive way with the BCP and WQPL, I have a better understanding of why the lands are fenced and the public kept out. I don't like it, but I understand it better. We might get more access in the future, but it will always be limited access. And it will take a lot of volunteer time and effort.

    That is Phase 2. Maybe meet me out there one day and show me your ideas. I have an idea for same spot but open to suggestions. But the new scary aspect will be an up and over ...over the small boulder on top if the huge bolder that will shoot you straight into the wood feature . Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    There has been a "B-line" for years (smooth down and up to the left). There has been a "C-line" for years (stay right of the tree). If somebody wanted an "easier route choice" it was already there. What they did was to take away the harder line. I cannot think of any reasonable justification for what they did.

    Hey, cxagent... Do you think the person who did this simply wanted multiple easy trail route choices... Seeing that there were already, from what I think you said in your OP, two easy alternates?

    I’m ok with B-lines if the trail steward designs these in, but rando dudes adding them in is not ok!!!! You can’t responsibly or feasibly add a line for all skill levels everywhere or every trail would turn into a parking lot!

    @RidingAgain yet you fail to acknowledge you concern was addressed.

    Barry... Before you make this ugly... Just stop. This is a forum and as such I can pretty much post whatever I think... Not what you think... Is relevant to the topic of the OP. Hope you can comprehend the above.

    You suggestion was addressed both in the post and on the trail. I reckon my poor assumption was your reading comprehension.

    I did... Twice. Perhaps you should not assume.

    I have to agree with RA. It's common practice on well used public trails to have feature bypass lines (PB actually already kinda has some).
