Banned in the USA: Part 3
I agree with the bill proposed. I think local ranger districts ought to be able to manage access to both 'open' & Wilderness trails individually. In fact they already do this as MTBs aren't allowed on every National Forest trail. Recreation managers know their trails intimately and probably already have an idea of whether bike access would create conflicts on each trail based on grade/sight lines/shuttle access/# of visitors/etc... If the bill re-opens access to only those lands classified Wilderness in the past 5 or 10 years it could be a win for most trail users. My favorite riding is 6+ hour backcountry type xc loops. Ill find myself in Wilderness from time to time, and the people I meet are 99% stoked to see a MTBer. Just make sure your bikes don't make noise, don't skid, say hi and remain cordial, slow down for blind turns and just generally share the trail. We all go to the Wilderness for essentially the same reason, and we need to share it.

Brand new, in a sealed box. This post is 440mm long, and has 150mm of travel. They are both internal and external compatible. I can provide a 30.9 to 31.6 shim if needed Thanks for looking

Unfortunately this seatpost was too tall for me and my frame. All I've done is take it out of the box, insert it, and put it right back in the box. It comes with the bleed kit & reverb fluid, the extra collar, lever doodads, and everything else. Thanks for looking

I ran my bike into a rock and put a quarter-sized hole in the downtube. It's patched with 15 multi-directional layers of unidirectional carbon and used the proper West System 205 epoxy resin and hardener. The carbon was compressed with a combination of saran wrap, electrical tape, and painter's masking tape. By looking at the photos, much of this is still attached to the excess resin, because it's so hard I couldn't clean it up. I didn't really try that hard, but you can't cut the glue globs with a safety razor; it's super hard and strong. With some careful time with a sanding disc you could probably make it look decent. In short,it looks like shit, but it works great!! I rode this frame for another year, and rode it hard and fast through the PacNW winter and long summers. I never heard a creak, detected any flex (if anything it felt stiffer), or second guessed the repair job after the first ride. This frame is compatible with alloy models, if you want to upgrade to carbon this is a good and cheap way to do it.
