    Fair point about coverage, so maybe the much-loved POCs would be short there. But anything thicker than lycra should keep a brake lever out, shouldn't it? Hopefully. The '18 thread still has good options and now I'm kinda interested in a pair of the new cheapos.

    Thanks for the reminder--lately I've been trying to talk myself out of pads on a couple warm days.

    Yeah I was thinking the POCs or BERNs would be too short but it looks like most of the other stuff should work

    Brutal. Are the levers that sharp? Mine have big rounded blobby ends. I did something similar years ago but it was the lever clamps that grazed my leg all the way down my calf. After that i got all paranoid and wrapped them and the stem with neoprene velcro thingies.

    Kind of a scoop. Not sharp. I assumed it was the pedal or something else but a buddy said nope if you went over the bars itís always a lever. And then there was the dropper post leverClick image for larger version.

    Yep, rigid w/ no dropper AND a fucking tube in the back tire. I was horrified. But Rontele really, really likes mountain biking. Homie was smiles and stoke the whole time.

    Hahaha Classic! Looks like you're liking your new locale!
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Last night's ride. Expected a million people out based on cars at the trailhead




    This rock is a major tourist attraction. There can be a 2 hr wait to take a pic there on a busy weekend. Not sure where everyone was, only 3 others here when I arrived. Trailhead full of people missing out on an awesome sunset!




    Lots of interesting rock and side features to climb and descend




    Typical runout after >90* degree turn, with another 90* turn at my feet
