    I like my rocky mtn 20. Decent starter bike and quite reasonable

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    I ditched the Bluto a couple of years back for a cheap Chinese carbon fork and haven't looked back. I found the performance of the Bluto to be pretty poor especially when you consider the added weight. I find tire pressure modulation to be a much easier and predictable form of suspension.

    This is the best deal I have found, just ordered one for $139. Might even leave the Ellsworth decals on for comedic effect. Or some black electrical tape.

    Suspension forks are nice on frozen footsteps and postholes. Our conditions here in the northeast, even at the best of times, are never all smooth and happy. There are always frozen, rotted, icy, gnarly water ice zones and when it's a mile of footsteps that fork is sure nice to have.

    Iíll vouch for the guild quality of Dirtís wheels. Theyre nothing short of spectacular.

    We have about 50 miles of groomed trails in the area (and packed powder a lot of the time), so it’s not so important.

    Smoothness and packed powder are a myth, they only exist in pictures and videos on the internet. Really...
