    Blame me ! I finally took the Mojo in for some much needed "post Colorado maintenence" thinking it has been too nice and I could probably get a few rides on the duallie before it snows .

    Oh well , I`ll break out the winter bike for now , going to go check out the new and unimproved trail conditions

    Where is Da Capo Cafe ? I wish it would just stay cold now . This upcoming warm weather is going to turn the trails to shite

    Da Capo is across the street from redbike but facing 109 St. Sunday rides leave from there at 11:00 every week.

    I'm currently working as a bike courier, and I'm in my last week of a two week stint. Fun work so far, pay is so-so, but I get to ride most of the day!

    Haven't been out on the trails much, but luckily I hit up Ft. Sask on the 'cross bike before it snowed. Primo late season trail. I need to ride there more often considering it takes me just as long to drive to Terwillegar as it does to Ft. Sask!

    Is everyone signing up for the RVC Christmas Party? There were plenty of good deals last year.

    I find it better to quote temps without windchill, then add it in at 30 km/h (bike riding speed).

    Awe come on, you mean non of you guys have been out riding today? Temps are dropping everywhere around the world north of the equator, heck we dropped down to a high of 28C here today. When I went out about an hour or so ago to run a quick errand it was right before it rained and temps felt like about 25 or 26C, downright chilly I tell you

    Exams, cold, laziness, and IT band inflammation have all conspired to keep my off my bike. I've been on my trainer twice since the snow hit for real. I need to get my **** together. I'm hoping to do some good training for 60-90 minutes 3 days a week. But I doubt that will happen.

    Although I hope there are some decent tracks set. It should be a great weekend for XC skiing.

    That is my plan - my plan to do a lot of XC skiing last year was about as good as my other plan to train over the winter. This winter I have been putting in 3 hrs/week on the trainer plus some gym work each week. If I can add 2hrs+ of XC sking each week I should be ready to ick some @$$ come May

    I know 65'er was lusting after one at one point, but I don't think he ever pulled the trigger. I've seen a couple out there. I may try the 'cross bike in the snow this afternoon (cut through vs float on top like a Pug).

    Woohoo...cross bike in the snow today!! Ok, it's not a mtb, but it handled the streets and paved trails better, while the MUT was a wash...the ice fog made it hard to stay in the packed area anyway. Of the path, gimme my mtb.

    I was surprised, though....stuff just off the path was past the hubs on the 29er wheels (ok, 700c....same difference)...had a nice slo-mo endo as a result. Drop bars are not the nicest if you're going over them

    Sorry for being slow on here. I've been busy with school and work. And thanks to work, I may end up ordering a Surly 1x1 frameset. =)
    At the end of the day, my bike is a bike, whether its made for XC singletrack or DH, I can make it do what I want.

    I went xc skiing yesterday and it hurt. I'm out of shape.

    I'm thinking of taking the trainer tire off my hardtail, putting some nevegals on and going for a ride tomorrow. It should pretty pretty messy but it'll be nice to ride again.

    oh hey Gord. I didn't see that until I got back. I had a great ride. I ran into two cyclists and tagged along with them. We went from kinsmen over through ewok and then to the capilano and back. I tried a few sections of singletrack some were great and others were super sketchy.

    I was actually on the other side of the road by the school kids - my niece goes there - so was keeping an eye on her and being there with her. Crossed over to try and get a shot of the flame going by her and her class, but failed pretty much Flame was passed right infront of my sister (her Mum) in front of the school - she got some good pics of it.

    Sadly was wishing for a nice PUGs to go snow riding while I was there, but no such luck. Also got myself a nice sinus infection which kept me home bound for about 10 days

    Trails are in great shape. There were six of us out yesterday and we weaved ourselves from Kinsmen to the Capilano bridge and back. Sounds like we will be doing it again next Sunday if anyone is interested in joining.

    Well today was snowy and many of the paths I was on haven't been touched, but I hauled out the Cx bike for a little spin in Millwoods today. Cross tires seem to cut through this crap pretty well, but I still hate the car-induced "plate snow" you get on the roads...shifty crap.

    It wasn't a long ride, but it sure was needed. Now I just need the other parts I ordered so I can do some wheel building while we still have snow this winter.

    Working on one of my two bikes. (The one before I got the cannondale). Took it to the shop, layed down some primer. Brought it home, sanded it with 600, spotted in the area's I burned through, hit that with a red scuff pad and sprayed it with satin black bumper coating. The cannondale is going to be sprayed at the shop. Other than that, no rides lately, been too busy. Need to make up some cash so I can order parts for the SS.(black bike)

    I've been riding the last few sundays with Gord and our friend Sheldon. The trails are amazing. Mckinnon root trail is ridable and lots of fun.

    Good to hear about the trails . I haven`t been out in a while . Hopefully gonna break the curse by this weekend . Mckinnon sounds tempting , your buddy is riding in the Transrockies I see . Good stuff ! I know that is one toughass race , hopefully he does well ! Any of you guys signing up ? I might be forced into racing this year , some friends are going in 24 hrs / Canmore . It should be interesting .

    I know there were discussions about night riding in the fall thread, and thought there might still be some interest.

    I stumbled across this when looking for some other stuff, and thought I'd post it here in case anyone was interested.

    I would recommend getting those lights from geomangear.com - Geoman is really active in the GPS and Lights forums and stands behind the products he sells. And yes, these lights are excellent. I use two - one on my helmet, one on the bar - and there is no shortage of light. Jkirkpatri uses 3 and it is like riding in daylight!

    Hey Guys, Been riding more lately. Plus, Got another bike. Was with a buddy of mine and we saw a guy throwing a bike into the dumpster, we asked him if we could take it instead of it being garbaged. Only work I need to do with it at the moment is change out the rear tire and tube with one of my spares. Other than that, for something we got for free, its awesome. Should be a good commuter/spare trail bike.
    At the end of the day, my bike is a bike, whether its made for XC singletrack or DH, I can make it do what I want.

    Spring is here!! Well, in my mind it has now arrived. I just picked up my new bike and the snow can't disappear fast enough to get it out on the trails! I got one of the last Rocky Mountain Vertex 29 SEs left and I am extremely impressed. I will post some pics soon...

    It's so nice outside, itching to get back on the bike. Early spring maybe? *knocks on wood*

    Hopefully things start to dry up

    Hah maybe I will. Funny enough I have no problem running outside no matter what the weather but a little snow on the ground makes me not want to touch my bike.

    I went out on my hardtail and I don't have a computer on my hardtail. But I went out for 2.5 hours today. It was a good ride. I bonked a bit at the end, but it was nice out.

    To the guys who have a magicshine.......how long did it take to ship here? And did you have to pay any duty/handling fees?

    Thanks.

    I hope everyone is out and enjoying this weather.......

    How long it takes depends on who you order through and level of shipping you selected. I ordered from GeoManGear and the first order was 6 business days, second was 10 business days. I think I had to pay GST the first order, duty and GST the second order. That seems to depend on the customs agent and what type of day they are having :/

    First batch was about 4 days. Second batch was about 8 days, but they were out of stock when I ordered. I used Geoman too. I had no handling fees to pay, just the international shipping of ~$20 off of Geoman's site.

    Hmm....trying to figure out where those are........science center?

    Got my magic shine today......seems like a nice light (backyard test). It's a little brighter than my amoeba, hopefully it performs as well.

    Does anyone have suggestions for a good tire for a noob in Edmonton.

    I just found a pretty good deal on a Gary Fisher Piranha. My wife is all excited about the matte rootbeer colour, not the components (she cares more if the bike is pretty). I really want to encourage her to mountain bike. But the Bontrager Jones XR, look like they would suck, and not be very confidence inspiring for a new mountain biker. Any suggestions?

    I was thinking of trying to swap them out for a pair of nevegals or something with big confidence inspiring knobs. My wife is not confident on trails and i need everything to help her feel more confident.

    I've found the nevegals (2.1??) to be a pretty good all round tire, they also have a nevegal with a stick-E compound for improved grip IIRC.

    Not a super light/low rolling resistance choice, but a good tire for the area IMO.

    Another tire that I liked was the schwalbe nobby nic (2.2??) and the continental mountain king (2.4??).

    slowly finishing the F8. Took an old derailler and ghetto rigged the bike as an SS. Need a headset and it's rideable for me. Anyone have on lying around I can buy for cheap?
    At the end of the day, my bike is a bike, whether its made for XC singletrack or DH, I can make it do what I want.
