  1. Hey that abandoned boat launch at Madrone was pretty useful for mojofest! Kind of a tease to have a water fountain in the woods with no water. 😉
  2. Lock it down. Then deflate the tire, you’ll see the extra wiggle room. Found this out on my T2 when my front wheel went flat while I was driving home once. Bike almost wobbled off the rack. I slap a cable on mine in transit as backup for it falling off. 15 years locking a bike downtown I’ve seen ever type of hitch rack defeated. Saw where they cut thru the aluminum tray on a roof rack to defeat a locking head. Stole this sweet colonago. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. That’s still a 1 minute theft, they’ve cut cables on both thefts lately. Snip, 5 seconds. Once you unthread the axle from both wheels, which is 15-20 seconds each, then just yank up on the frame leaving wheels still attached to the rack. Go buy a big fucking chain and good lock.

  4. The problem with wheel locks is you pull out the axle and just walk away with the frame and components. That backup cable takes less time to cut then unthreading the thru axles. All quick and quiet. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. My inlaws did a hiking trip across Scotland for their 50th anniversary where they hiked pub to pub across all sorts of private/public land. There’s a smattering of shelters on some paths to get out of the weather. Whole different deal when the pissing match over land was settled centuries earlier. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Ha! Seen that lots in CO front range especially on trails shared with big dumb animals and the horses they were riding. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. On taco mans route, Ditto coldwater east of Birmingham. Also ridden Oak Mtn SP and tannehill SP south side of bham, chewcla near Montgomery/Auburn, ridgeland near Jackson, and mt Zion south of Jackson in Brookhaven, Lincoln Parish Park in Ruston, Tyler SP. All better than the few things I’ve ridden in FL or lower Alabama. Too sandy. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. I'm a Great Raft's Reasonably Corrupt fan. Pick up a sixer every time I'm in La.
  9. And in the interest of diversity I look forward to numbnuts submitting his idea's to AustinBike. That'll be entertaining. 😂
  10. Traditional holiday cheer! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Any time in La. with family involves a good deal of booze. Well any time with MY family in La. requires some booze. 😉 I travel heavy JIC!
  12. How was the Pecan ale? I missed out on them when I was in La. last month. There's a really good one from a brewery called Lazy Magnolia in MS near Biloxi. Seen them at Total Wine a few times.
  13. Only thing a snapping turtle concerns me about is hitting it and going down in that festering stew. Not like they want to reach out and bite you. A moccasin would be a much greater concern, but that tunnel is a long way from where they typically like to hide. too much traffic and long section of open ground on both ends. Brushy tunnel is close to cover where mice/lizards hang on both sides, but the lighting is much better. Now that sunken grate in the middle I’ve forgotten about in the dark when my eyes didn’t adjust and nailed while on my road bike. Got a little squirrelly ONCE now I wheelie it every time.

  14. I could see it on a lot of front range or SW Colorado open country. Moab or Fruita/Grand junction techie stuff where you don’t want to fry trying to setup the perfect angle to film might be good too. You see those early one used in clear corridor bike park stuff. East and NW or in the scrub country that we have is tough. It would take some serious tech to process and would probably price it beyond the consumer or youtuber budget.

  15. An old boss lives in Gtown Sun City. They have no kids and few family members so it works for them. Otherwise it’s way too restrictive. I call it grumpy old fartsville. 2 week limit on visiting family (no grandkids for the summer), no guests allowed at any amenities except with the homeowner present. So grandma can’t play bridge in clubhouse while kid and grandkids use pool. Plus the usual gated community bullshit. No cars outside garage, can’t work on your own landscaping or cut your grass, only “approved” landscapers allowed. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
