    Trail Conditions / Comeback Ride

    So I'm heading back from Truckee tonight and think my knee is strong enough for a ride on wednesday. Just wanted to know about the trail conditions / rockiness factor of T100, DC, or Papago. I'd be happier at the first two. Gotta take it easy and get my strength and conditioning back and pretty much change how I ride for a while.

    I figure I'll do one ride on Wednesday and a longer better more awesome ride on friday or saturday depending on when the new bike build is done. Cant f'in wait. . .

    So whats up, has it been raining in the valley as much as it's been snowing here? Rocky maddness?

    Cheers

    Not that my opinion should matter as I have 0 medical training, but I know if I was in your shoes, I might start with a quick loop around Papago and see how the knee feels. Then build off that. All the winter rain has made DC and T100 a loose rock paradise.
    Getting a dropper post is like getting a bidet. I didn't know I needed one until I get one and boy, does my ass thank me.

    I'll second that further out west. The first few couple of miles from Pima have sucked lately, imho. It could be I need to get rid of the damn hardtail though!

    Yeah that part has allways sucked, but the part from secret to parking nazi is very smooth and fast.
