  1. LOL. I'll buy one when I'm 80. It's nice to have options.
  2. Ok, we are down 13 lbs, my attempts to join a team killed the desire to race and group ride tho. [emoji16]. Seems I'm content to lone ride it the rest of my time in Austin. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

    Thank you for all the great trail guidance. This trip was surreal. The trails were beautiful and interesting. Excited to be home, alarm at 4am will be way too soon.
  4. Vegas MTB



    and better than anything, if you go to the Grand Canyon while in Vegas, keep right on driving into Flagstaff and ride Schultz Pass, that's actually great riding! Fact:Flagstaff was Tom Walton's inspiration for Bentonville AR, it's really fun riding and free camping too.

      Looks like this comment was out there for a while, geez. 

       Yep we hit up Bears, Bootleg and Blue Diamond.  Love Vegas, the city is set up perfectly for a MTB Vaca.   Eat till your stuffed, ride till your starving, hit up another buffet and sleep to do it all the next day.   We also hit up Gooseberry Mesa in Utah.   I hear that they also have gambling other entertainment, maybe next trip

    Anyone have any advice about riding in Vegas? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  6. Not us. We had to drive out there to just make sure it was shitty weather Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  7. We are thinking of traveling to El Paso between Xmas and New Year- weather dependent in Arkansas. Pretty excited to see the rest of the Chihuahua Desert. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Do you still have these? I'd like to see if they fit me. We have a l set of the 661 and they are a little too big for me. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  9. Geez. I want the 73k acres that border the state park. I suppose one could put a solar plant on the property to make income out there. As much as I looooove west Texas, I think one could get board at the lack of variety in trails. I may have more luck talking Barry into the land next to Revelie.

  10. Thanks, BSS seems right for me. Got my touring bike and mountain bike frame from them. Thanks for the guidance. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you for the information, there is a lot to process here. It will take me a while to consider all the information here. I'm not particularly a bad ass rider, and at 41, I'm pretty satisfied with my 9-5(or 6-6 in my case). Any racing I do is purely a hobby. I just switched over to 29er from 27.5+ for 10 months. Before that I rode a 26 for about 8 years (in Rochester, and Ithaca). I'm finding the slacker set up makes some trail features less intimidating. This may be a set up I feel comfortable trying an Enduro race. I also changed my diet to get faster climbing. I cringe at the motivation to finally drop 15 lbs, but I'm pretty satisfied with my downhill speed and flat speed. If I want to go faster, I have to carry less potential fuel. I learned that November 18th. If I want to be successful in endurance, I also have to start an upper body strength training. Thanks again for all the great reference information. I may check out Pedlars Pass. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Greetings Forum, I'm thinking about trying a few races this year and I'm wondering about these bike teams I see. Those that race with a team, what are the benefits? How did you select your team? We moved to Texas from upstate NY, and I never saw any valve in racing as the only woman in my age group. I'd seriously cringe thinking of standing alone at a podium accepting a participation trophy. Most social activities were usually centered around the local imba chapters. It's so different here, having a larger population. But enough back story Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  13. I just picked up a nice lined pair of cycling pants with chamos from performance for 50% off. If it's very cold we have gortex pants, but I have used them since fat biking in NY. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  14. This year I cycled through 3 different tire sizes and 2 rim sizes. I started with Rocket Ron's 27.5 x 3.0 on Raceface Affect 40+ rims in February and went through 2 pair in 1500 miles. Swapped over to 27.5 x 2.8 Rekons right before the single loop at LGT. Very different tread pattern. I just switched a 29 x 2.35 mavic Quest Pro on Mavic XA Elite rims. This 29 set-up may be my favorite, it most reminds me of a 26x 2.35. I still think the 27.5+ set up was necessary to work on handling since transitioning from a 26". I'll probably just go back to the 27.5 for Big Bend or El Paso. Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
  15. Greetings, Can someone please tell me when the normal club planning meetings are for this group? Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk
