    SS in Vegas

    I am off to Vegas next month for the World of Concrete. (yes, yes, I know, it is pretty geeky, so let the beatings begin...) Anyway, I will be there for a whole week, and this time (yes, I go to WOC every year...) I am taking the sled. So I have two questions:

    1.) What trails to ride, where are they?
    2.)Gearing suggestions?

    (Okay so it is really 3 questions...)

    Any help?

    This is the place to be. I am going this weekend and can't wait. although the trails are much more fun on a 7x7 dh rig. If I were to ss Bootleg Canyon I think a 2:1 would be fine.

    Yup, geaky.

    That makes Consumer Electronics Show sound pretty sweet. On Sat of CES they have the <a href="http://www.avnawards.com/">AVN Awards</a> at the Venitian. It makes for some amazing <a href="http://www.avn.com/gallery/view_album.php?set_albumName=avnawards04">eye candy</a> in the casino afterwards.

    I'll miss you by a week. I'll be riding 36:19, or almost 2:1. Bootleg Cyn is sweet, and Cowboy Trails are supposed to be as well.

    Anyone want to night or super-early-morning ride between the 6th and the 10th?

    Cool-blue Rhythm Local here

    I regularly ride bootleg.(15 mins from home). I ride a 32x18 there. Also hit cottonwood while out here. YOu can go big on the gears there cuz the trails are relatively flat. Cowboy i have never done on SS but it is a pretty harsh climb. Check the Nv forum when coming to town. I can probably meet up to show you some good ride options.

    Thanks.

    I am at the Venetian, and they want a crazy amount to rent a car, so I am looking into other options.

    I was going to bring a full compliment of gears, just to be sure. Start with 34:17 and taper down from there.

    I plan on riding on Sat, Sun, Mon, and Wed if anyone wants to hook up.
