    That was definitely one of my concerns, but I went out there twice this last weekend and didn't have an issue. Also, I didn't see any riders out there dealing with flats. Not what I expected.

    wow, that looks really fun.

    Who is that Covering Bad Company? Sounded pretty good. I used to listen to my dads old Vinyl of that album when I was a teenager.

    None other than Five Finger Death Punch, a band out of Las Vegas, how could I not use that song for a Vegas trail...

    If you like that one, you'll also like Bears Best Trail. But hit it fast before it's gone because it's being turned into a golf course. Nevada has the sharpest rocks I've ridden through so far...

    Nice, thanks! I will look that one up. I go to Vegas about once a month, so I am always looking for new trails. Appreciate it.

    If you haven't already, try Cottonwood/ Blue Diamond for a bigger ride or swing down to Bootleg Canyon.

    Bummer to hear that. I've ridden it twice and really liked it. Good local trail for sure
    San Diego needs singletrack

    Nice video. My favorite downhill here is Boneshaker. It starts a little below the antenna tower. There are a bunch of 2-4' drops and some sharp, loose switchbacks to negotiate.

    I will definitely be back there and make sure I hit that...well probably not the 2' to 4' drops, too many injuries lately, I didnt quite make it over that far, it's a bigger area than I thought it would be.

    Are you riding a Pivot Mach 429 as your user name would suggest?

    For sure! Love it. And what I wasn't overly impressed with...I upgraded. Rode one 2013 Outerbike, and have never looked back. It fits my riding style, and comfort level. Though I did ride an Intense Tracer 27.5 this year that rivals it!

    Cool vid(s)...esp like the Daley Ranch "thumbs up" @ 00:13

    Very interested in this Vegas ride...been looking for something to wring out the hungover dice on the return trip to SD.

    Will do for sure...my wife and I are planning a Zion trip with a pass thru Vegas in June. Need to tune the legs for the eventual JEM trail ride near Virgin, UT.

    Cowboy Trails are great. I can't see how to play the vid on your site.
