  1. yo, seth that is awesome! high fives all around
  2. Some pics from an overnight trip to Telluride. Wish I was able ride more but it worked out as the smoke rolled; we needed to head back
  3. We're in Pagosa Springs then headed to Frisco for a month then Colorado Springs for 6 weeks and then with friends in Ft Collins for a week for Thanksgiving. December will likely be in Boulder but we have not booked a place yet. We also haven't decided where to go after New Years. West of the Rockies might be a challenge in winter and we don't want to have to carry winter clothes/gear for too long. Only my oldest daughter(6) and I ride. My wife can't because we have a 3yo and 1yo who cant ride. They go in the massive double stroller.. Tires are good. I got new ones before we left that were higher load rated, lower profile and wider(235/60/18 to 255/55/18). No tire squirm and I can carve up these mountain roads on my fresh all seasons, ha
  4. Trip is going well so far. The Pilot could use some heavier springs in the rear for this highway dips at 80MPH 🙂 MPG was awesome and the avg for our 1200mi so far is 20.4. It was my oldests birthday the day before we left so I got her a new ride. This Vitus bike is great. She loves it and the hand brakes were no issue for her. She switched from a coaster brake bike and 14” wheels. We’re working on shifting which she almost has done.
  5. my Saris rack was missing a bolt. I got on to the site and see Cindy 🙂
  6. ROCKSHOX MONARCH PLUS BASIC SERVICE KIT https://www.jensonusa.com/Rockshox-Monarch-Plus-Basic-Service-Kit-2?pt_source=googleads&pt_medium=cpc&pt_campaign=shopping_us&pt_keyword=&gclid=Cj0KCQjwyJn5BRDrARIsADZ9ykHy4MXw7AmBvcwMzYe8m-XeQso21K_V_N0P-hDAbFGpfmoLHQ6EaxcaAlpJEALw_wcB P/N 11.4115.129.010 this is for an older Monarch. new and unopened
  7. I would use the CO2 to seat the tire. I don't know if tires have gotten better but in the last few years but I haven't had to use an air compressor to seat a tire. A floor pump does just fine. I normally seat the tire, remove the valve stem core and add my sealant and reinflate Found the perfect rack https://www.saris.com/product/superclamp-ex-2-cargo
  8. Remote working and space for the kids to learn and play is key for us. No lumbering around in an RV or Sprinter. I do wish our Pilot was 4WD but it’ll do. We are minimalist and there’s a Wally World nearly everywhere. Just no HEB’s 😞 A molle panel is something I need to look into. My 4runner had one for the rear side window. I need to select me essential car tools and bike tools and figure how I’ll pack/store then. I was thinking I would pass on the floor pump and use CO2 or my pump from my waist pack
  9. Posted on FB. I will be someone flexible on the price and have extras I will throw in for anyone on here. The size is medium but its really a large. My 6'3 250lb friend was on it Bentonville for a week and it was fine apart from needing the rear spokes tensioned https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/337150397312862/
  10. We have copies of all the kids birth certificates in our family iCould. That was a good reco. The bikes will get locked up with a cable lock while on the road. The Yakima Skybox will hold all clothes, shoes, coats and a stroller. We don't need to pack much in the way of clothes or food and we'll be using vacuum storage bags to save space. The Pilot will be a great vehicle as it's the one we have and it's been good on all our other trips.
  11. We've sold our home and will traveling with our 3 kids(6yo,3yo,1yo) for an undetermined amount of time. I have a list already of what I need to take for working, riding and getting out with all the kids. We will be staying at AirBnB's so a lot of the basics will be covered. What are some necessary items yall travel with if you're going to be away for awhile? Hoping to get some ideas for things I haven't considered Our vehicle is a Honda Pilot with a Yakima Skybox 21 and a 4 bike rack(which I need to purchase still). First major stop is CO, then UT and who knows
  12. Free Harbor Freight parts bins. There is a wall mount that goes with these as well. Pick up is in Pflugerville 45/130 area https://www.harborfreight.com/material-handling/parts-storage/parts-bins-racks/20-piece-poly-bins-and-rails-41949.html
  13. My first every mountain bike on the day I brought it home - 10/1/06. Purchased from Ozone RIP
  14. I have a wheel box if anyone needs it for shipping. Located in Plugerville. PM if you want it
  15. kids skills area off Sam Walton Blvd. My 5yo had a lot of fun and got to ride most of All American and some of the new wooden roller features in "phase 2"
