    I may need to plan a trip to Rocky Hill on the 8th.

    What's the list of bikes included in the Tour as I'm sort of interested in the Arc?

    Plus, will there be anything to fit the lanky rider, 6'5"?
    It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

    Been wanting to check out Rock Hill Ranch anyway! Looking forward to it! What would one expect from this Yeti Demo Tour as I've never experienced this type of thing?

    They usually have an array of the ASR, 575, and a few years back they brought some ASX's but that's obviously replaced by the Seven now. I recall a DJ too! I did get to ride a 303 they brought to Mad Duck in Grapevine 2 years ago, it was sick.

    They had most of the models in different sizes and out on a rack in front of the truck and you just ride them.

    One would assume that it will be the same format again maybe even have a 4X bike and the BMX/Jared Graves bike, at least one could hope. I am no longer a part of the Tribe, but Seth and the guys there at Yeti are great and it should be a fun weekend regardless.

    Was thinking of making the 2+ hour trip to Tyler State Park for the demo and riding. Now that it has moved to a shop does that mean no test riding of any significance??

    Hey guys,

    I'm not exactly new to the sport, been riding for about 8 months and I love it, but I'm definitely not as seasoned as most of you are. I'm interested in coming out Saturday to Flat Rock and checking out some of the bikes. I have never been to demo days before and I'd like to know what should I expect? What should I bring? I just want to set my expectations right and not make an arse of myself.

    Bring your usual ride stuff and PEDALS. If you ride clip in pedals, they will mount them up for you.


    I sure hope comfort holds up in the rain!

    Last question, is there a deposit when you demo a bike?

    I believe that you will need your drivers license and a credit card.

    No worries though, anthonys is a top knotch guy.

    I just talked to the land owner, Sadly 'tis too wet to do the demo at Comfort.

    Walnut Creek on Sunday should still be a go though.

    Walnut Creek trails are still going to be soaked, I hope the sun comes out on Sunday!

    Todays ride was awesome......WTF Yeti? No-show at Walnut Creek. We got there at noon and the parking lot was deserted. Sun came out 20 minutes later and it turned out to be a gorgeous day! Thanks for the update and my huge waste of time and gas...luckily my friends and I are all optimists and made the best of our day and rode for 7 hours.

    Dry enough. There were about 20 other riders out there.

    Dry enough? WC is pretty black/white when it comes to dry. Yeah, after 3 days of rain (and WC got a shower at 9am sunday), only you and 19 other people were hopeful enough that it was dry.

    WC doesn't drain well and the mud turns to bugglegum in lots of spots.

    Look, I don't care if you rode there when it is wet, I might ride there once a year, but out of respect for the work that ARR and other riders put into the system, try and keep your impact to a minimum.

    Go ride CP if you want to ride a trial that is wet.

    Keep your liberal BS to a minimum. I am my own judge of whether a trail is ridable in soft conditions [snow, rain, dew] I've been building trails long enough to realize that riding in slosh is not only crappy riding, but pisses the trail builder(s) off.

    What the hell is wrong with people thinking they are a fukcing official and that what they know, no one else does? Were you there on the same day I was? Were you sampling soil density that day? If not, GTFH CZ and stop counting posts and attributing it to someones knowledge of the sport.

    Old lighting-wit strikes again, usually when someone makes a revision to a post, they tone down their self righteous and insulting tone, not the opposite.

    Like I said, I don't ride there. I ride trails that offer something more suited to my inclination.
    OH, counting posts...seems you are the one paying attention to that. They can eliminate that stat fwiw.

    The demo was canceled because the trails were muddy. Yes, they should have notified you in this thread, but it was pretty obvious that it wasn't going to happen...due to trail conditions.

    Even over at another board, they state that just today the WC trails are
