    If anyone hasn't tried the Maxxis Dissector tire yet, go for it! I had it replacing the aggressor on the rear in a 2.4 and loved it but just replaced my worn out minion dhf in the front with the 2.6 dissector and am blown away.

    Rolls so damn fast almost like a semi slick but with all the qualities I enjoyed in a minion. The assegai was also a great front tire but rolled to slow for my liking.

    Still want to try to wild enduros from Michelin too, if they ever come back into stock...

    Took Friday, July 31 off from work. Tried the Indian Creek Trail #800 from Rampart Range parking lot to Strontia Springs and back.


    I enjoyed smelling the scent of pine for 4 hours. No covid for me. Knock on wood.


    There were fields of flowers blooming:


    This trail tested my endurance. I hiked with my bike (Trek Stache 7) on some of the steeper sections, which seems more steep in person compared to the photo.

    Damn... That's a really hard hit man. You all healed up? How long was recovery?

    Side note: I've sold 2 bikes in the last month. One sold for cash in hand in 7 hours. The other (Spartan) sold before I even posted it. Someone messaged me when I posted my new bike and bought it before it was even built. Crazy.

    You (somewhat recently) swapped to a Shimano drivetrain from Sram, correct?
    How are you liking it? What ultimately made you switch? What level of Sram to what level of Shimano? Would you do it again?

    Yeah I’ve got about 200 miles on the new XT drive train. Previously had GX shifter and Cassette, XO1 derailer, crank and chain. SRAM was fine but I didn’t like gear spacing and I felt like it had to be tuned up more regularly. Much prefer XT/Shimano. The new 12 speed spacing is much more useful and with power glide I can shift under load, don’t feel like I have to baby it as much. Plus can double shift up.

    Edit: I am still running the XO1 Carbon cranks.

    I’ve got a bontrager specter. I’m a fan of it. It’s a small feature but the fidlock buckle is nice. It fits my head nicely too

    that bike is clean! But I have to say it’s almost strange to see a bike without a dropper these days

    I started a shit show last time I mentioned how over rated they are. I like the Bontrager carbon but to each their own. “Look out fellas I’m dropping my post, ITS ON NOW. I had a Fox transfer on it but dumped it over to my fatbike. They just aren’t for me.
    I just cleaned the Fuel to, never that shiny.

    I get it brother. Quite a few people still ride their seat posts up the trails and then open the seat post clamp and drop the seat at the peak. It’s not a super challenging thing to do

    Circa 2000 we did that. What a PITA. So nice to have it when needed via a thumb handlebar mount. Granted I’ve been using a remote dropper since 2008. I use it, but not as much as some claim to use it. Still nice to have when you want it instead of stopping and doing the quick release method at the top and then again at the bottom. I get the fact that some would rather run a cleaner bike with less gadgets and less of a weight penalty. Go single speed and ditch the dropper if that’s what it’s all about.

    I ride with SS guys and that’s an entirely different animal. I’m pushing 50 and still able to get my ass behind the seat, it’s all what you’re used to.

    Exactly, like I said, I’ve ran one for years. I’ve also ran without one in between those times of service. To each his own, I myself love having the option at my thumb at any time. I can deal with the weight penalty or one more cable and lever on the bars for the convenience of it being there. But, I get those that choose not to run one. I’ve been on the verge on more than one occasion myself but the convenience of it outweighs the penalties.
