    How would you like to pay for bikes with pre-tax dollars?

    That's the same kind of crazy logic as saying the government giving people buying a $100k+ Tesla Model S $7,500 in tax refunds, was to people who didn't need that money.

    Things that make you frown :(

    It's a pretty crazy story, and I don't think we've heard 1/10 of it. Pretty crazy he's not providing any info on where she may be. Killed her?

    Cooper Road (and presumably Whipporhill Valley Road): cyclists and pedestrians banned!!!!

    Rarely the green, but it does happen. It's mostly the side streets like Mccullough or Maple. It travels really far and it's impossible to know where it's coming from. And yeah, I'm surprised too how often it does come out of cars. I guess it's not unlike smoking that you don't realize the...

    Morristown fucking reeks of weed now. It is pretty crazy. It's an issue in a high density area when your neighbor's stinky weed smell is coming in your windows. Everyone has their conspiracy theories that it's the equestrians in their land-rovers, or the signs are fake, etc etc. But yeah...

    Hardtail Talk!!

    Kona's sliding dropout hardtails right now are both built around 140mm forks. They have the regular Honzo built around a 120mm fork, but no sliding dropouts.

    Hardtail Talk!!

    And just to say it, my original point is there isn't a lot out there from the major manufacturers. Santa Cruz has the Chameleon, but then the other few out there from the big name brands like Kona/Salsa are going more slacker and more travel. Trek/Specialized/Cannondale/Etc don't really do...

    Hardtail Talk!!

    Not a fanboy, but they make some nice stuff. Chameleon is nice and not too far off from the Timberjack. It does seem like both the AL and Carbon versions are pretty heavy. And if the Timberjack is similar to the Chameleon, the pricing is much better on a Salsa especially as I'd be looking at...

    Hardtail Talk!!

    Still old geometry, and really heavy frame. Plus while my Lefty rides awesome I can't get the stem lower and shorter.

    Hardtail Talk!!

    Yeah, but that's what I'm looking for. I have a full suspension bike if I'm looking for more travel. That generation of Timberjacks probably is what I need to find, which is probably impossible in this market. Not looking for a slacked out heavy 140mm hard tail to ride at Six Mile or...

    Hardtail Talk!!

    My mind is blown that there's hardly any hardtail frames with sliding dropouts. Timberjack is on my short list but supposedly new frame is pretty heavy, not sure if @jimvreeland has info on that. And then on top of that, most hard tails spec wise is based around cheap bikes with low end...

    James Pearl Thinks Blogging is Dead

    So last night I read your post, and was like "Whew, for a second there I thought the Iron Gate race got cancelled since he mentioned Vic. But who cares about Iron Furnace, that's not even on my radar." While I like the Iron Gate name for the race, obviously it can get mixed up with Iron Furnace.

    New 1UP Heavy Duty Owner…any tips?

    Any chance you want to weight it? :) The 1UP racks seemed nice as they were lightweight, but seemed to have gotten heavier over the years...

    Free tires and rims

    I don't need to replaced a screwed up rim with another screwed up rim. :)
