    Secret can put the hurt on even when your bike is running well. Wouldn't want to hike a bike it, especially with 50 lb moped.

    For real. This was my first time not eating shit or breaking something on that trail. In the past I've had close encounters with trees (1 st time), went OTB trying to be steezy and rolled my ass in a cactus (2nd time), and flatted then tore the tire off right at the end (3rd time). Usually the drivetrain is screaming in agony by the end as well...
    Big bikes helped this time, I was on the Gnarvana, buddy on his Enduro, and we we happily smashing around all over the place. Third friend on a Stumpy was a looking a bit more fatigued by the end, the riding is so physical. Not sure the added weight and decreased maneuverability makes the riding significantly harder but having more squish certainly makes the repeated hits more tolerable.

    SLC Bike prices. While the interwebz are showing a big drop in the used space, I'm not seeing it in the SLC market. Have my youngest on a bike I picked up From DTM a few years ago. She went on or near the podium in every race she did this year and so I need to find her something that is a little more XC and a little less enduro. Every NICA parent is shopping in the XS / Small size zone for what I am looking for, but used are selling for about a 10% knock off from new and I selfishly used the pro form on myself. Patience will pay off, but feeling the guilt for my selfish buy!! I should probably wait for spring anyways because she is at the age where she could jump a foot in three months.

    This happened at the start of the month. I was lucky and it happened on a dirt road and not the trail.
    I felt the bike fall apart underneath me, I was able to get unclipped and just stood there looking at my bike in 2 pieces between my legs.

    I can't complain too much, 5 year old frame, I had dented it pretty bad 3 or so years ago and never bothered checking it again. I did notice the back end was loose that ride, I kept checking the suspension and wheels, never thought to check the frame!

    Thanks, I had just bailed off a double black trail that was at the edge of what I'm capable of.. 2 minutes before this I was riding down some slabs so it could have been a lot worse.

    Also I also had a remote ride planned the next day, this could happened 10 miles into the bush.

    So overall doesn't really belong in the rant thread, but seemed fitting.
