  1. Gone, won't let me edit post for whatever reason.
  2. Fair warning - always keep an eye on them when they're charging. I've seen lots of stories about cheap lights and the batteries catching on fire when charging, usually in regards to the cheap stuff you get from china on ebay.
  3. I remember that dude. He also had some other crazy statements unrelated to bikes. Tim Kelly was his name, I think.
  4. It's beautiful right now, high of 71! We're thinking of extending our stay another week past the 9th. So far my favorite ride has been Hobbs State Conservation Area - Wolf Den and Karst Loop - very pretty trail!
  5. Just an FYI - right now the Razorback Greenway is closed just south of Blowing Springs RV Park (right past the new north location of Phat Tire Bike Shop) due to highway work and you either have to drive around or do the fairly unsafe ride on the highway or a 3ish mile reroute on a 2 lane road w/ no shoulder (but not much traffic) A factor if you're staying in Bella Vista or camping at Blowing Springs and want to ride to Slaughter Pen.
  6. Ouch! Glad you escaped relatively unscathed! Heal fast!
  7. Obviously a scam listing, but the text was great. https://austin.craigslist.org/bik/d/austin-santa-2019-cruz-hightower-carbon/7200309852.html (pic is clearly a carbon hightower w/ a chain on it) 29er Tubeless Santa Cruz It is an indestructible, steel frame, mean machine. Upgraded to Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and added dropper post recently. It is silent, no chain, no lube,no grease,no issue. Me AtText now :: Belt is more reliable than a chain and lasts a lot longer. The cleaning process is just to use a water hose and aim.
  8. I honestly just walk that feature these days. I've been OTB on it too due to badly placed rocks. It should be easy, but it seems like it changes every time and I'm not risking injury on it.
  9. They are great wheels - have heard nothing but good reviews. I've been thinking of picking up a set for my Cutthroat soon. Local company, great folks - the owner used to work at BSS and is a super nice guy.
  10. Not sure about other shops but BSS has been pretty stringent on their precautions. If you're bringing your bike in for service, you put it on a rack next to a tent, walk away, and they wipe it down and take it in. You either wait in your car for online orders or pay at the entrance to the shop if you're picking a bike up. No one actually goes in the store (at least at Research location)
  11. Yeah, I've definitely seen more bikes on the road of the cruiser/hybrid variety in the past few weeks. Have also had to inform several parents that kids are required to have helmets on - I generally mind my own business but I make an exception for kids without helmets - it can cause life-changing damage and they don't know any better, so it's up to the parents to take responsibility. I've also been taking my bikes in for needed service I've been putting off to make sure to throw business their way.
  12. Rode that way yesterday and Pickle back gate was fenced off. Looks like it be hit or miss depending on the day (Wednesday @ 2PM).
  13. I've been riding more of the lesser used gravel/trails in the area. Only did a brief stint on brushy last week to connect to something else. I can PM you the route I did if you want.
  14. Yeah, I was trying to argue that point on Facebook this morning. Based on Italy's data, this is the best path to avoid many, many deaths. But 'I'm an RN and think this is overblown!' is apparently better than hard numbers and data science studies.
