    Thanks for the tip on shipbikes.com :thumbsup:
    I've historically used bikeflights exclusively, but I've found their rates for smaller parts to be pretty high. Its most always cheaper to just use a USPS flat rate box.

    Whatcha looking for? Size, wheel size, budget, travel amount?

    I'm bored at work, on a Friday before a holiday weekend, when 1/4 of the staff is supposed to be here and over half of them took off.

    Ha! My bike budget is so low with wedding savings that I had to look up what Kashima Coating is, so definitely not :rofl:

    Well I swung by the shop and still no bike. But my upgrade to carbon plan is still on hold because my bike is supposedly in shipping right now. Somehow other shops keep getting it enroute or something like that. So now it should be here Tuesday. But we shall see.

    Pearl Izumi has some pretty good deals on MTB clothing right now. Ordered a few more shirts and shorts

    My brother had an NBD today, pretty excited to start going on rides with him even if it’s only road/gravel. Too bad it’s supposed to rain tomorrow haha

    and yes for some reason the bike shop is next to an urgent care

    You meant to say conveniently located next to. They know where the business is good. And the trails are slam packed right now. It’s a little ridiculous.

    Those are both good points haha. I was waiting in the truck while my brother was waiting for the bike and there were like 10 groups of people waiting for purchases. I think I saw 5 or 6 new bikes roll out of there in about an hour.

    Nice ride today showing a buddy around a local area. Hero dirt! Doesn’t look it here but this is one of the bigger local downhills. About 1400’ descent in 4ish miles. Mostly rolling hill forested stuff nearby so it’s a good change up.

    My LBS is a very small trek dealer. And he is having a really hard time getting any new bikes in right now. (Especially mine :annoyed:) He is having a hard time. Even turning a ton of customers away due to no inventory. Really sucks to see.

    not enough.
    yeah, I've seen my LBS turn away tons of people because no one has anything in stock. Heard of a small shop a few hours south of me that sold 100 bikes in one day (as in they still had to order a whole bunch). :/ It's crazy.

    Yeah that’s wild. It seems that shops near me are doing okay stock wise, the main issue is repairs. I know a shop down the street from my place in Virginia stayed up til 1am with a full crew working to catch up. The shop my brother got his bike from is in MA and he actually got it earlier than expected. They are just swamped, I don’t think employees signed up for this when they got these jobs. Hopefully stock starts coming back soon.

    before I got my warbird I did see that trek already released the 2021 checkpoint alr on their site some I’m wondering if they did that because they already ran out of 2020s

    Ass kicker today, at least for me. Haven’t ridden this trail in a while and remembered why. Huge climb, all rock garden decent until the end where you can get a bit of flow. Rock gardens are fun, but after climbing 1,758 vertical ft. in 5 miles (1,100 in about a 1 mile section) through one and then descending about 5 miles through one, I was over it. Can’t a guy just get some flow around here? Any way enjoy the pics.

    Just put some Surly Sunrise bars on my Surly ECR. They're totally ridiculous but I kind of like them so far.

    First time taking someone out, not knowing their ability, I definitely took you on a fun and more mellow ride. You crushed it man, and had I known you had the time and skill I would have taken you on either one of these three.

    Here's the 'regular' loop:
    Screen Shot 2020-05-23 at 7.58.17 AM.jpg

    And the longer loop (what it doesn't show is the 8K descent):

    Screen Shot 2020-05-23 at 7.55.40 AM.jpg

    Or the high altitude ride:

    Oh, and cause someone mentioned the oil slick Ergon...

    Rode my fiancé’s small Trek Roscoe (undersized for me) yesterday and let her ride my FS for a little. Holy shit - I actually liked it a lot compared to my FS. Not that I like it better, but it was a different type of ride and I felt much more “grounded” especially around corners. Maybe it was the small frame, but it felt like a great ride. I never really had an opportunity to try both types of bikes back to back on the same trails to feel the difference.
