    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 AVN Awards at the Venitian. It makes for some amazing eye candy 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.
