    I'll echo what Evdog said. I'm a pretty big fan the riding in AZ during the winter. Coming from Salt Lake, we have much closer access to St. George and Moab but IMO AZ is better. Lots of variety even...

    Those e13 cassettes are absolute garbage. I've had the cogs fold over on me on 2 separate cassettes. 700 miles sounds great. I think I got 200 miles out of one and maybe 300 out of the other. I...

    Do yourself a favor and listen to this man. I was tempted by the range of their cassettes, but they are complete trash. I've had the cogs bend on me multiple times.

    I'm 6'2" with a long torso. I ride an XL with a 60mm stem. It fits me great. Bike sizing is really personal but I would certainly think a medium would fit.

    Hawes is really fun and has a nice mix of family friendly trails and tech. It is quite a ways from where you're staying though. The valley is just so damn big.

    You would need a new front hub. The biggest issue you're going to have is that Kona probably has a 1 1/8 steerer and the Pike is going to be a tapered steerer. There's no getting around that. ...

    I know it's a bit of a long shot, but I'm looking for a 9 speed short cage Saint rear derailleur. I technically only need the cage. Let me know if you've got one lying around.

    Their prices are insane. They sell full x01 groups for $640. Schwalbe tires for $35.
