In my bike search last month the Specialized Stumpjumper was on the list. BSS did not have a single large Stumpjumper of ANY flavor at ANY store. I literally had cash in hand and would possibly have bought at the time and the best I could do was ride an older model of a rental bike around the parking lot. My expectations for Specialized dropped pretty hard after that. There is a benefit from buying a big name brand, but when the bikes just can't be had, much of that benefit goes out the window.

That's some sour grapes.

I’m assuming the only way to Brushy by bike is to take Parmer, right? 

I think so. The Parmer store will have all the details.

if you are headed to deception, then you can take Lakeline/Neenah west and then a right on Staked Plains which dead ends into a trailhead.

if you are headed to peddlers pass, then Parmer would certainly be the fastest route.

Where are you coming from?

I live near Parmer and Anderson Mill and sometimes ride up through the Forest North neighborhood (Broadmeade, etc) to Lake Creek Pkwy, to Lakeline Blvd, then to Staked Plains near the train station. From there, Staked Plains goes northwest through Avery Ranch, and dumps you right at the BCRT.

Actually that is some totally indifferent grapes. 

I ended up with a better bike, more of a shout out to the community that if you are going to demo a bike, it is worth asking your dealing what inventory status looks like. When the biggest guy can't get inventory then it might get some people fired up if they demo and then want to get one now. Just trying to set expectations.

I believe transition bikes will have some demos at the 11/16 Banduro in Bandera event!

wasssap!

A buddy of mine rode a Transition at Outerbike in 2016. He had no plans to buy a bike, but after that he bought a Transition within a couple weeks. He loves it.

Should have clarified, in this context I would be coming from Parmer BSS. I didn’t know any of this though. Good info. I live near Lakeline/Ridgeline, 2.5 miles from the YMCA. Real nice to ride to brushy from the garage.

I emailed Transition last week inquiring about the new Transition Scout. He wouldn’t spill the beans entirely, but expect a new release before the end of the year, and expect carbon. High on my radar.

That's even easier, with BSS being at Neenah which turns into Lakeline Blvd as it crosses Parmer.

And it didn't hurt that Transition brought their own craft beer to Outerbike.

Was able to hop on a Scott Genius 29er this morning for a quick 5 mile loop. Fun bike. I just sold the exact same bike a few months back in the 27.5 wheel size so it was nice to ride the same bike in the bigger wheelsize. They charge an arm and a leg for their bikes, but they sure are spec’d nicely.

Anyone know if Spider is going to update their Friday hours?  Open 2-6 but the sun goes down at 5:30 this time of year.


I was wondering the same thing. Thinking of going out tomorrow.
