    Pinecone is one of the better downhill trails out there in my opinion, especially coming off the crest. I was surprised there were only 4 people going up it yesterday as I came down it.

    I fall somewhere in between Canada1's and brutah's opinion of Pinecone as a descent. Regardless, descending it fast and loose mid-day on a holiday weekend is about as stoopid as it gets. Had to be so much uphill traffic on it at the time.

    Bike in tray of hitch mount rack on friends truck. Apparently I didn't jam the j arm tight enough for the pothole infested dirt road and my bike jumped out. Dragged 30' by the rear wheel, one spoke is tweaked a bit. Fucked up my Ultra hydros, $215 is the cheapest I can find for a replacement. Searched a bunch and it seems the 8020 hydro doesn't have a lever replacement like the 8000 cable.

    That sucks. I’ve had two trays break over the years, but never any bike damage.

    Bummer, had that happen to me too a while back.
    In retrospect, I figured that is what i get for not loading my own bike (or at least checking it after the fact).

    If you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it tubeless, I will. I got spare time.

    I've seen 2 OneUp failures now, both came out of the car on the highway making quite a mess. They don't have a place to put a hitch pin in so you're trusting their tool free ez mount. Nice racks but a little bit of user error or someone trying, unsuccessfully, to steal it and you're out a couple of nice bikes with a potential headache on your hands if someone runs your bikes over and damages their car.

    It's pretty easy to run a 4 foot NRS strap around the body of the rack and through the trailer chain attachment point on the hitch.

    Ummmm, they include a strap to anchor it to your your hitch. Specifically, to the spot you would attach chains. Any idiot immediately replaces that with a chain and padlock. Also, a standard receiver lock pin is used to block access to the adjustment bolt. Double secured.

    Apparently not "any idiot" is capable of getting it right or swapping to a chain. What's wrong with good old threaded bolts holding a rack in? I probably have over 100k miles with no issues over the years. Sure it's a pain in the ass to get down to tighten it up but it's pretty reliable so...

    It's not tool free and its superior to any other mount I've used. Plus the rack itself is superior as well. I'd just prefer they went thru distribution instead of direct sales.

    I've had several racks that use bolts. My daily driver North Shore uses a bolt, without a auxillary cinching device they jiggle like Lizzo.

    You can always tell a douchebag by the "oh don't get me wrong, I'm also a __________ ."
    Because you know they're pretty much lying.


    And yes, I do own a mountain bike. I use it to ride on remote, closed roads. There are millions of miles of them.

    Careful though, those remote roads also tend to be in nature. By riding on them, are you not also fundamentally harming and completely destroying the true quality of being with nature?

    How 'natural' is societal smug?

    You think coyotes are out there on game trails goin "fuckin moose, stay in the brush where you belong. I mean don't get me wrong, I also have antlers, I just only use them in the brush, where it's appropriate."?
