Peak Leaders: Top 5 Whistler Trails
Microclimate again today (and last Thursday included Yummy Numby to Foreplay). -2 degrees at midday as we "dropped in" last Thursday, positively balmy by comparison today (maybe 5 degrees). Running so well at the moment, heaps of grip, can ride it without causing any trail damage. A couple of (previously) boggy sections will probably benefit from some trail love in the early Spring. So much fun with a lot of everything. Love the acess trail/ climb as well, cheeky little skill tester. Thank you all Whistler trail builders and WORCA!!

Peak Leaders: Top 5 Whistler Trails
Except the article is about riding outside the Park and Trespasser is in the Park. But it is seriously crazy as a trail.

Mavic Crossmax XL Wheelset - Review
Graves has muscles so does not need the additional leverage provided by the wider bar and probably enjoys the extra clearance (and keeping his little finger intact) when shooting through a narrow gap at mach chicken. He is also not that tall so biomechanically he doesn't need 780mm bars (a fact that a lot of riders over look when they fit their new 800mm bars - are they actually forcing you to ride with straighter than ideal arms because your hands are now too far apart relative to your shoulder width?). Remember wider bars are a relatively new thing so a lot of existing trail (single track) was cut based on the 'widest' bars of that time. We have trees with bar cut outs in the bark on some of our older trails that you can no way fit a modern 740 mm plus bar through (unless you can manual or wheelie over ruts and roots, whilst climbing, whilst turning your bars sideways to fit through the gap).

Ask Pinkbike - Nevegal Tire Upgrade, Converting a 26-inch Bike to 27.5-inch Wheels, and Choosing the Correct Spring
But the sticky verisons wear faster than the DHF so they end up costing about the same. Consider the Conti Trail King Protection as they grip well, wear well and roll pretty fast.

SRAM Guide RS Brake - Review
Saint and XTR, whilst it is admirable to want to replace individual parts to service brakes, the fact is that with Shimano a: you don't have to very often and b: they swap out the whole unit without much bother as far as questions about fault etc. a simple" of it's not working because a seal appears to have failed, we'll warranty that for you". They even replaced the brake pads that were contaminated as a result of a faulty seal. My Elixer CR and Codes: noisy, contaminate easily ie need regular bleeding and do not have the same modulation that the XTRs have.
