Opinion: A Secret Trail and an Argument Against E-Bikes
Well, maybe i'll get voted down, but in Squamish, trials bikes are all over the place, and there's quite a number of trails that are shared by trials bikes and mountain bikes. The trials guys put in some of the more epic trails around too. And the fastest way to break in a new trail is to invite some trials riders to ride up and down it a bunch of times. I know that won't fly in a lot of places, and electric bikes are kind of a different thing all together I guess (I'd be embarrassed as hell to be seen on one), but there are places where the trails are shared between motorized and human powered bikes with very little conflict.

The trail app has 80% of them and is pretty sweet. The newest ones like Rupert aren't there yet, and there's always hidden jems, but the app's the best way to start.

So, not sure what you look like dave, but maybe you should wear a name-tag so I can buy you a beer as soon as i see you. Thanks for one of my best rides ever!

I love Squamish more and more every single day. This place is an insane paradise.

Ask Pinkbike - Buying New vs Used, Which 29er and Shift Cables
And I gotta say, replacing a few bearings and throwing some grease here and there every couple months has made my 2009 Devinci Frantik ride pretty much like new. It really doesn't seem that difficult. In fact, I like ripping apart my bike and rebuilding it, because it's a great excuse to drink beer!

July Online Deals
yeah, nuts. Just ordered a new 1070 and a Oneup for $170 less than the "sale" price. Mt. bike markup is insane.

Ask Pinkbike - New Brake Pads and All Mountain Flat Pedals
I stupidly held out thinking that 5.10s were nothing special. Finally I broke down and bought a pair. They are game changers! Probably the number one equipment upgrade I've ever done.

Video: Canada"u Gets Gnarly
If the trail wasn't finished, it's bad form to shoot it. But it is (probably?) Crown land, so it's tough for anyone to get too pissed at people having fun and doing what they do in a public space. There's way more important things to be pissed off about, that's for sure. Maybe those boys can come back with shovels and a couple cases of beer when they return.

Silver Star Bike Park Now Open: New Trails Unveiled
Silver Star's a wicked place to ride, but that photo of "riders enjoying terrain" is probably one of the worst examples of mountain biking I could imagine.

Economic Impacts of Mountain Biking Tourism
Yeah! I was also stoked to see the nearly even numbers in Squamish. That's pretty amazing. It's wild how many more people are riding here too. A few years ago it was rare to see other people on the trails. Now it's pretty busy. SORCA has done such an amazing job maintaining and building here, and I'd give them pretty much all the credit for making Squamish riding what it is.
