    My stable. Or perhaps unstable. Do I know how to choose colors, or what?!

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish)
    Well... as much as I want that Stache7....
    I took my teenager that would be "sharing" the bike.
    She just could not get comfortable on it(not as tall as I am yet)....
    And, to keep me honest.....with myself.
    She preferred the TJ
    Its a "back-up" or spare bike for me, so, in theory she will use it more.
    It is fun.
    Liked it better than the Fuze.
    Preferred the Stache
    Couldnt argue with the price. Bike is worth upgrading if it comes to it.
    Besides, the Stache isnt totally off the shelf yet...

    So... thanks for prodding me away from the Roscoe. Sucks, it is a fun bike... just wish the rear axle was a boost148.. would have been a no brainer.

    Well, I now have a Salsa a few Treks....

    If it’s any consolation, this is my stable. I’m a one bike warrior these days, but the Stache is a fun one to have.

    Honestly I was kinda turned off by the color at first. Now I love it.

    Is that a twin and have you tried it yet? I run a ARB Single and there's no way it's enough to setup tubeless.

    How did you guys mount your cross bars? They both look like they're mounted directly to the bed rails/caps, but I'm guessing that's not actually the case.

    I'm jealous! I'm strictly a road bike guy--Trek Domane 3.2--but that's a beaut. We also have a couple of electric cruiser bikes which we take when staying at campgrounds.

    We have a Thule rack...https://www.thule.com/en-us/us/bike-rack/hitch-bike-racks/thule-easyfold-xt-2-_-903202.

    I just realized how expensive that is. I didn't buy it, my fiancee did. I hope she got a big discount... :-/

    Looking forward to camping and fishing and will carry 2 kayaks over the bed, and 2 bikes in the bed, as unfortunately the hitch will be in use. No easy way to mount bike carriers on the camper (Tab 400) unfortunately. So I will either get a raised bed rack or possibly build one myself out of wood and 1" black plumbing pipe.

    I've rebeaded a few tubeless on my single last season. But every rim and tire combo is just a little difference.

    Most importantly, people at trailheads look at you like some sort of space wizard when you bust out an air compressor.

    @honda50r How was Windrock? Looked miserable, but maybe in a good way?

    Shit was lit dude. The course was brutal and all the major media sites toned down their footage to exclude all the gnarly crashes at the first rock garden. At one point two riders crashed back-to-back and needed extracted on stretchers. The elevation was so intense the entire crowd formed a massive line and escalated the stretcher to the top of the mountain to the ambulance

    It was rowdy to say the least. The fearlessness/skill of the pros vs the amateurs is insane. See the below link with footage of both the amateurs and pros on the same rock garden. Also Friday night dudes were sending back flips off the step-up at the bottom

    it was spectacular. And yeah, talk about a community coming together, the fire lines that we scrambled together worked perfectly! During practice the failure rate of that section was about 75% for the entire field!
