    IMO smoke over aqi 100 means ride the trainer. N NV has been in the 300s a lot lately, so that's been my life for the last few weeks. A smart trainer with virtual video rides has really helped. Getting the HR over about 130 in any smoke results in instant symptoms for me. I hypothesize that one loses less fitness by not riding than by riding in smoke.

    I bailed East, though, and things are better here in Ely. The trails are also excellent. I'll keep going as the smoke follows me.

    I had Nevegals way back when. I didn't love or hate them. They were UST though, and so never, ever leaked air. UST was nice, not having to mess with rim tape - not sure why it's all but gone these days.

    It's not just about your lungs. PM2.5s are so small they actually get into your bloodstream and cause damage to your arteries and other organs. Wildfire smoke also contains benzenes and other chemicals that are absorbed into your blood and cause systemic damage. It's not worth it.

    Because Stan's sealant, tape, and rims blew away UST like it never happened. The market decided. UST standard was not gonna work with multiple tire sizes, erd, and only Mavic had sealed rims. Fun while it lasted but tires got better when they no longer had to be air tight, narrow, and stunk of French.

    FWIW, my UST rims were Eastons.

    I don't see how TR rims/tires "blew away" UST. But I also don't miss UST or even think about it...except when changing tires (and shredding the rim tape, at least to some degree, in the process - not that I always need to replace it).

    Sealant and taped rims blew UST away in sales. The most important metric

    FWIW your easton UST was licensed from Mavic.

    That nonsense is part of why tubeless ready stuck around.

    My experience with Nevegals was never ending pinch-flats.

    Glad I stayed in today. Have kinda felt like crap the past 5 days or so and it's gotta be from smoke. You guys farther west really have it bad.

    It's fucking horrendous. I haven't ridden in a couple weeks.

    Maybe I'll do a mini-TR, but for now I'll just say that Ely is worth the trip! There are way more trails than TF shows, and nearly unlimited possiblities for extending loops on ATV roads.
    I won't pollute this thread more than this...

    Nice.

    Was just looking at the map this morning and wondering if it would be worth it to swing down that way from Ashland, OR on way to Moab, UT. I have been through northern and southern NV, but never the middle.

    You don't say...By the way, my new Kendas are still holding up well! I haven't been riding as much as I normally would, this time of year.

    I think that's a pretty good way to keep Kendas in good shape - don't ride on them.

    When you gonna be out that way?

    Rogue National Forest Siskyou Mountains Ranger District is still closed and it’s unclear when opening will happen. I think that’s largely gonna be dependent on the Slater Fire and Obenchain Fire progress and how many resources are still gonna be needed for mopping up the big fires east of Portland Salem Eugene.

    Probably 9/29 - 10/5. Supposed to race California Enduro on the south side (no fire on that side of town) of Ashland on 10/4. Honestly shocked it hasn't been cancelled yet.

    Ask the experts

    Yeah there’s no fire anywhere that would threaten Mount A but like I said the National Forest is closed, and almost all those trails are in the NF - but I’m not totally sure where the boundary is.

    Also, the Slater fire is pretty much WSW from there, which is pretty much the prevailing wind direction too. Unless the fire activity really ramps down from this current rain cycle, the mountain would only be rideable in NW or offshore flow patterns.

    Want to know why Enduro racers run cushcore and DH tires? Watch the middle part of this video. Without a solid setup tires would get peeled off on this rock segment. Gnarly

    Man - that was fun to watch.

    And now I'd kinda like to ride that track.
