  1. Took my own advice and picked up a YT Jeffsey Pro 29 to be my quiver killer. Took it for it's maiden voyage at Franklin yesterday, and I have to say I'm pretty pleased. Bike is a bit over a pound heavier than the Rocky Mountain and feels bigger when I'm loading it in the bike rack or the work stand. But my initial impression is that it rides and climbs better than the RM. I'm guessing part of that has to do with the 1x12 drive train and 77 degree seat angle. DH should be much better too with the additional travel and bigger brakes, but I won't know that for a while. Highland postponed opening
  2. If you decide to go new, definitely consider looking at direct-to-consumer brands like YT and Canyon. You get a lot of value for your money. I can't speak to Canyon, but my experience with YT was excellent. I bought my DH bike from them back in 2015. About a year after I bought it, I broke the rear shock. Contacted them and they took care of doing all the warranty work with SRAM (RockShox). Only thing was waiting on the replacement, but I would have had to do that with a LBS as well. The YT Jeffsey Comp is a full-carbon frame trail bike with pretty impressive kit for $3K.
  3. Stopped by River Roost yesterday for some essential survival gear.

  5. Lots of great recommendations! I'll add my name to the others that like The Expanse. Great series and science fiction that actually relies a bit on actual science. Hunters is another good one. The Last Kingdom on Netflix is also good and loosely based on historical facts. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

  9. I got a couple of decent fat bike rides in over the last month between Franklin Falls and Boston Lot. I signed up for the slalom race at Suicide 6 on February 29 and proceeded to crash hard OTB on my first practice run. Ended up with bruised ribs and a big old bruise where the bars tried to poke through my leg. No race run and no rides since then, but at least I'm able to breath deeply again without wincing
  10. Local guys in Springfield, NH are making some pretty good stuff.

  12. I've had a few over the years... Nearly hit deer at Highland and Franklin Falls Chased bears in Stowe and Dupont State Forest in NC Had to avoid turkeys at Boston Lot and Sunapee And I always seem to be chased at least once a ride by barking spiders
  13. My first non-alcoholic IPA. Surprised that it's actually pretty good. Similar in flavor to other session IPAs. I also picked up some Sip 'o to balance it out [emoji846] Sent from my Pixel 2 using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
