    I just dropped off some gear at the Okemo swap and they had guns going top to bottom.

    Light recommendations

    Thanks for the info. NiteRider is one brand that I've been looking at since they seem to show up in most of the 'best of' articles.
  4. Now that we've lost an hour of light, I'm starting to look at getting a lighting set up for winter riding. Anyone have any recommendations? I'm definitely going with helmet and handlebar lights. I'm thinking I want to stick with wireless, but wired seems to offer a lot more lumens.

    Went to see SCI at the Palladium Saturday night. Amazing performance! This was my first time to see a show at the Palladium. It's a great venue, but it was like a sauna.

    This followed me home last week. Finally took it for a test ride yesterday, and I'm absolutely amazed at the traction! The trails were pretty damp yesterday, with a lot of wet leaves and slick roots. I decide to go with 8 PSI up front and 10 in back. I never spun the rear wheel once. If it were to ever become my daily driver in the warm months, I would definitely put a suspension fork on the front, but it still wasn't too bad. Kind of brought back memories of riding my '94 Cannondale Beast of the East, only with better traction, brakes, and drive train Can't wait to ride it in the snow!

    I don't know. My ass is still pretty sore In all seriousness, you're absolutely right. It did its job so well, I didn't realize how bad it was. The guy I was riding with mentioned I got my helmet pretty good, but I figured it was just scratched. I didn't see the actual damage until I took it off while waiting in the lift line. New 100% Status on order.

    Took Friday off and rode at Highland. Perfect day for riding. Started pushing things a little too hard and had a good crash. Gear took the brunt of the fall, but I'm a little sore. Time for a new helmet. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Thanks. That's good to hear. It's a leftover Salsa Beargrease that's discounted to the point that it's in the same ballpark as some of the bikes I've been looking at on Bikes Direct.

    I hear ya. Any tips on things to look for in a fat bike? I'm seriously looking at picking one up for the winter. Seems the biggest things I need to decide on is whether I get one with a suspension fork or not and the size of the tires. The guys at the LBS say 27.5 x 4 is where it's at, and since this is going to be a winter only bike, I don't need a suspension fork. Of course, the only bike that they have at the shop in my size is exactly that - fully rigid on 27.5 x 4.

    It comes from motocross. Dirt bikes typically have a 21" front and 18" rear wheel with the front being skinnier than the rear. Taller and skinny in the front for better handling, shorter and wider in the rear to get the bike to hook up better. The UCI just revised the rule book to allow different size tires in DH. I won't be surprised if we see some 29/27.5 bikes racing next season. 2003 Specialized Big Hit. 26" front/24" rear ?

    A friend suggested I try Ommegang Abbey Ale Dubbel. 8.2%. I like it! Sent from my Pixel 2 using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
