    You may have to sign up for that also, worth noting. It may be code based BF. Idk, just speculating. I put my email down.

    These are some true black trails, wow I am beat. Maybe I was just tired, but these trails I’d say they are harder than the trails @honda50r shown us around on at Windrock.

    I could’ve possibly knocked 20 mins off this time had I not got lost at the bottom of Avery without service.

    Also, forgot to start trip till about 200’ above the gate at the stables.

    They’re next level trails for sure.
    Skip Bent Creek, greens lick isn’t worth it.

    Those at Pisgah however are worth some suffering. Don’t get me wrong Monte and Oak have good sections of hard trail, it’s just we get time to recover since they’re so short. These trails just keep going and going.

    I live in Santa Cruz and I’ve ridden in Phoenix, but this video gives me an appreciation for Tennessee … with the last footage from Windrock.

    Splurged and bought myself the Outbound Detour light. Black Friday sale + 20% off for first time buying through Facebook so I saved a decent chunk. I usually ride mornings or evenings and it's pretty much dark at one of those times year round, so I think it will be a good investment

    Just bought myself the pedals. Favero Assioma Duo Power Meter Pedals, I am mostly planing on using them on the Peloton to ride on Zwift during the off season. 623.99 for duel power meter readings seems a little too good to be true but we'll find out. Wish me luck!

    Rode barrel and zen today in St George for the first time. I did not enjoy them. I can imagine they'd be fun if you're local and really know your way around, but trail finding was too difficult to ever let loose. Do not recommend unless you've got a local guide.

    Loved this. Wonder how much wheels also play into the suspension/frame performance and feel.

    We debated those two trails when we were there and heard mixed reviews. What direction did you do them?

    Who’s going for a thanksgiving ride today? I use to hold a golf tournament with family and friends, but that got out of hand. Now I’m starting a new tradition by going on an early morning bike ride.

    Heck yeah NBD! '22 SWorks Stumpjumper Evo, that's a mouthful so I'll be calling it Stevo. Rides pretty sweet, the low BB is going to take a minute to get used to, and I'll look forward to dithering with the adjustable geo.

    Was thinking of gettin up there for a ride, looks GTG!

    Funny, I quite enjoy those trails. Zen is for sure a small bike trail, tons of pedaling. There are some spicy lines, but not many. Barrel is a hoot, tons of boosters and bonus gaps. Nothing sustained, but fun to play on and session.

    Wow! That's super good pricing! I wish that cassette were offered in the copper color, I'd be on it.

    Sign up for WAO Black Friday on the website and it’s 15% off everything.. Bikes included.

    Being an early adopter sometimes stinks, but it will be cool to see more out there.

    Got out with a friend on an early morning fatty ride. Cold as all hell, but fun to get out before stuffing my face with turkey and pie.

    You can get WAO Unions with I9 101 hubs for around $1000 with code, they dropped the price on them and kept the price of the new wheels the same. Solid deal from them which they could’ve just raised the price to match every other carbon fiber Wheelset offering

    The code is very one use ordeal, I entered it on my phone and was looking at products on my ipad and it would not let me use it again. It’s locked to the IP address on my phone I guess.

    Made a hole in the garage, in case the pit holding today's turkey, has to go in the garage. Possible storms today.

    But did unearth some vintage MTB's & frames. Lots of E-Stay & funky early F/S frames

    Happy Thanksgiving y'all
