    not enough.
    Don't forget to go to the end of "broken arrow" to "chicken point". That's where the views are! AND you can see the white line from there.

    I think I know the bit on hiline you speak of. Right as you start to drop off after the open slickrock area. It gets super steep until the end of the trail. And to see White Line and chicken point don't know if we'll bike out there but I may run broken arrow in the truck just to say I've done it. Can catch some views and photos then.

    X-tiger. Surprisingly good for <$30 on Amazon. Several of us here have them. I actually stopped wearing my (non-prizm) oakleys to wear these instead.

    They’re big. On janky trails your helmet will bob into them in an annoying fashion.

    Glasses, helmets, etc are all highly subjective on fit. Worst case, you can return them or find a buddy to take them. They work perfectly for me personally.

    another +1 for the x-tigers... they are cheap and pretty durable.... not to mention incredibly stylish.

    ohhhh nice one.... you get to keep it all in? I can attest metal legs make you pedal 7% faster... It's Science.

    I've got that same Thule pad that I'm going to be upgrading soon..It's a little rough but if you want it it's yours just pay for shipping

    I don’t even think I’ve seen weather that cold this season and I spent like a month in Massachusetts for the holidays.
    If you’re trying to spend money then I love my ROKAs. They fit me way better than oakleys. Zero fogging too. Definitely a bit pricey but they always have challenges on Strava where you can get coupons

    Yeah I have not been able to ride due to wet trails but we definitely have had better weather than the rest of the county the last couple weeks here in NC.
