    Denmark MTB

    I know this is a long shot but I will be in Copenhagen in August and am starting to research riding in DK. I know they have National cycle routes - which is amazing, but I wonder how the mtb scene is. I could always do some touring or road but let me know if you’ve got any experience or...

    GX AXS Lives!

    I got my bike back yesterday from Marty’s with the new GX AXS upgrade kit on it and if it’s anything like my electronic group on my gravel bike, it’s a game changer. So far after noodling around a little bit it’s fast, crisp, and 👍🏻. I’ll put some heavy trail miles on it and see how it goes...

    Seat post issue

    I have a 30.9 seat post and replaced it with a different 30.9 post. The new one is just a tad bigger in diameter as it gets stuck in the seat post reducer/seat tube reinforcement piece. It’s made of aluminum. I was thinking of just giving the reducer a little sanding to help the post fit...

    How many times do you think you’ve...

    ...been in a hunter’s scope? I think about this many times during the fall winter and today I passed by a hunter up in his tree stand and pretended not to see him. He was probably 100’ away and I did the least I could do to piss him off and did a quick exit from the area. No shots fired thank...

    Bike Rack Thule Vs. ???
