    They did my fork while I waited. It was a snowy Friday. That was nice since I didn’t have to make a return trip. Took maybe an hour and a half and they where running a Winter special for 75.00!9CE36347-80ED-470D-BB27-4955AF41F2DA.jpg

    Riding in the PNW has been epic in February. Unseasonably warm and dry.

    Idk exactly the 1 my friend got. It was when there was 0 bikes available and I saw 1 on the site for $1699. 120mm rear travel, rockshox suspension, sram sx 1x12, guide brakes, and no dropper. I think the build was a mix of good and bad parts because of the severe shortages at the time. The SRAM sx derailleur didn't survive long (plastic derailleurs, really sram?!) and neither did the schwalbe tires. He put a cheap dropper, DHR/DHF tires, and a deore derailleur. Now its a solid bike. He's happy with it, but I bet he's going to buy a DH bike once he tries the 2017 specialized demo I picked up.

    I don't know what model your buddy got, but it doesn't sound like the T7. The T7 should be all RockShox but more travel (mine is 150/140 in 27.5, you lose 10 mm if you go 29). My T7 has a Shimano drivetrain (Deore), Schwalbe tires (although I read some are coming with different tires now for some reason), dropper is standard and it's about $2k now.

    Those couple days of summer weather was a nice reminder that i've been drinkin too many hazies and not riding the trainer enough. The trails dried out fast, and I had just finally gotten a good Shorty to find some grip. This this getssss down, 100% confidence in the slop.

    That's so true. It comes with major negatives. Afraid this summer is gonna be a wildfire nightmare.

    Drought and fire and all that other terrible stuff aside...

    I like having ski season to break up the bike season. Most years I'm ready to be done biking as it starts snowing and ready to be done skiing when things start melting out. Lately though, I feel like I haven't gotten enough skiing in before things start melting out.

    What kind of trainers do you guys like to use? Im not looking to take my cassette off every time preferably. Was looking at the Wahoo Kickr. Any mountain bike trainers out there that are good?

    I'm on the wahoo kickr core. doesn't require you replace anything except maybe your axle. some axles are not compatible. unfortunately. so you buy either Wahoo's new axles or one from the robert axle project... but it works pretty good for my occasional indoor ride. on my gravel rig.

    Doesn't seem overly complicated now that I'm looking at it, thanks for the recommendation!

    I've put over 1000 hours on my Kickr Core in the last couple years. Love mine. I've never used my mountain bike on it but have used thru-axles, QRs, Campy, Shimano, Sram....No issues.

    Takes a few seconds to put your bike on and you're good to go. I just leave a bike on it all the time though.

    cool thanks, have you used them before? how are they? This is pretty similar to what I've been looking for.
