  1. I rode The Back 40 and a good chunk of the Womble and came out wondering what the heck people were raving about. I'm going back in October because I must have missed something based on the way people talk. Plus I'll ride the Lovit. Tent camping at the Bella Vista RV park is a bit lacking, as it's just a small feild next to an RV park you get to camp in, but the facilities are pretty nice. Camping near the Lovit and Womble are much nicer. Arkansas does have one of the nicest campgrounds I have been to, the Shady Lake state rec area. We got there a day after a tornado though so I didn't get to ride the nearby trails.
  2. Taking a dog to the national park can be tough. Ime you have to hike around to really get the experience and your not allowed to leave your dog in the car, nor should you, and they aren't allowed basically anywhere cars can't go. We talked to a lot of people who had boarded their dogs just for this reason, and one woman who had drove out (something like 3 hours) to the nearest kennel in the middle of her stay just so she could do things. The bends are no place for pets anyways. Everything is hostile out there.
  3. Any word on dates yet? I'm thinking about coming to town for it but also have a wedding in Phoenix in late October to attend so I'm hoping both are possible.
  4. 8 speed shifters will work too. Just black out the extra number on the visual indicators as to not confuse any beginners. I just put some old LX shifters on my partner's cheap dual sport as an upgrade to the Tourney stuff that was on there.
  5. How was the bike secured? It be interesting and helpful to know what kind of trouble these thieves are willing to go through to get our bikes.
  6. I'm gonna put that on the list of reasons I'm glad I left Austin.
  7. Stay away from bigger brands like Mongoose, GT, Haro, etc. They are run by people who don't ride and will try to sell you a bike that is mostly shit based in a few "nice" parts. Smaller, rider run brands like Sunday and FBM do a very good job at putting together a bike that will work in the real world because that have to experience to work with. I'd go to Empire because those guys all ride and won't steer you wrong, but at they very least talk to someone who rides BMX on a regular basis before you buy. Fwiw I ride a Sunday, but it's an older model, and it's been a great bike.
  8. Rain? I just got the parts to rebuild my Juice and it started snowing this morning
  9. This is pretty much my stance on it. Just open it up and I'm sure there will be people who step up to the challenge.
  10. It's sold with a 140, so its probably designed for a 120 knowing Surly.
  11. https://www.srsuntour.us/pages/dtyd Nothing beats first hand experience.
  12. Someone wanna lend Mack a fork? Come to think of it doesn't Suntour have a demo program where they will ship a fork right to your house?
