Reveille Peak, Rocky Hill and Bluff creek are all about an hour away and are dedicated mountain bike ranches. Emma Long (City Park) is really good but they allow motorcycles, the dust can be overwhelming.

Thanks guys...Yes the lack of Mountains and the damn heat are the only two negative issues about the move. I'm moving from Vermont and before that I used to live in Seattle, mountains and bad ass trails have always been available right from my door. I have accepted a new job position that is good enough to drag me out of the woods and back to civilization, reluctantly, I admit.
So I am getting the feeling I will have to vacation out of state to use my All-mountain bike. Looks like I'll break loose my old bike has been relegated to the fluid trainer.
I'll definitely hit those those trails y'all mentioned..thanks for the heads up.

hey guys, I'm new to the biking scene. I've only been a few times and I wanna start doing it more. But something better than the Next full suspension bike I've been using. Somehow it hasn't broke, after the many times I've taking it out. I was on Craiglist and I saw this
http://treasure.craigslist.org/bik/3821358791.html
I was hoping if anyone could tell me if this bike is any good. Thanks in advance.

Don't waste your money, that is not a mt bike. That bike is slightly better than walking but not any kind of trail worthy. OK, maybe paved nature trail. Looks like a name brand comfort bike with low end components. Keep looking...........

^^Agreed. IMO I would keep riding the NEXT until you save up enough to get somthin better. Not really an upgrade there. I rode a cheap Giant for a long time. Then I sold one of my dirt bikes to get my current ride once I knew I was fully into mtn biking. Nothing special but has everything I need.

replaced my stock rear tire after i tore a sidewall, went with a maxxis ardent 2.25,overall it felt like a solid tire, i noticed like 3 or so other bikes were rockin ardents, it seems to be the choice tire around here, i hope it will last against rocks. the front tire will need replacing soon, it looks like some of the knobs are about to tear off probably gonna go with a high roller

btw that downhill section is a lot steeper in person haha

this is at the end of the blue loop, its called old shock a billy, you dont have to do that part if you dont want to, i think its actually a little bit longer if you take the old route. i think fountainhead its a great place to train. its not super technical and its provides a solid workout. i did the whole loop today which i think is close to 11 miles...i forgot to start strava for a bit so i only recorded 8.7 haha

if your ever trying to ride hit me up, im always down to ride with people

Me & a buddy are heading up there around 9:30 or 10. I've never been there & just getting back on a bike after being off for a couple years after a nasty car accident. I'm sure it's going to kick my ass.

havnt posted on here in awhile and made some big changes, after racing Downhill on Specialized bikes for almost 6 years i made two big switches...left the FSR for VPP and leaving DH racing for Enduro & Super D racing just got this bad boy a few weeks ago!!! Intense Cycles hooked it up big time! I honestly recomend anyone who hasnt yet to try a 650b bike im amazed! Already crushed all the local strava times on it even on the DH trails rides damn like a DH bike going down and climbs better than my old Stumpy Evo! the 27.5 wheels definitely haul ass too!!! Couldnt be more stoked on it haha

I love the Fuzz ball, lol! A lot of my riding buddies told me to spend the money on a well known used bike, but im glad I didnt. I love how Fezzari sets up the bike for each rider. You dont get that at a local shop w/o buying extra parts. Plus a comparable new bike would run over a grand more for any other brand. I did a lot of research before I made the choice. IMO all the negative you hear about Fezzaris is just people not knowing the brand. I been riding the wheels off it for over a year w/o a tune up, just routine maint. and its been holding up like no other. No problems to speak of as of yet. Plus their bikes come with a life time frame warranty and decent parts list.
