Looks like the two trails are officially opening on Aug 31. It seems they are done but probably don’t want to send the masses down in these dry conditions.

I think that was July 31st, as in, tomorrow!

"The new Attridge trails open this weekend (Saturday, July 31st) and are single-track, hand cut, tech style trails - check out Jacob Tooke's thoughts here"

Ah, yes. Either I misread or their initial correspondence had a typo. It is a sweet addition to silver star, whatever the case. I’ve said it before but silver star is killing it this year. Too bad about the conditions. Last year was perfect but the park crew was skeletal, this year they’ve got a massive crew but are hampered by drought and fire restrictions. It’s like we’re living in a Alanis Morrisette song

My thoughts exactly….

“You've already won me over in spite of me
And don't be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don't be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn't help it
It's all your fault”

that is some deep cut Alanis knowledge. Respect

Rode Outer Limits twice today. Pretty fun and a nice departure from the normal park stuff. Very natural and would be great with some rain. Kinda like BeKind, but a bit steeper in spots with a recent rock drop and a steep rock roll at the end. Spits you out near the parking lot when all is said and done so feels like a good way to end. i think you guys would love it and the other new trail, which I described as harder than any other tech blacks (and why I didn't ride it haha). No berms, lots of loose stuff, lil jank, no kids!


Fyi there are a few pedally spots. Don't bring the DH bike!

I am needing a new top-cap for the spring side (left) of my 2015 35mm Boxxers. I have asked the local shops, to no avail. Would anyone know of any machine shops in town that could replicate one?
Thank you folks.

I have no personal experience sourcing that kinda skill locally, but I would guess A1 machine & welding can do that for you.

If you can borrow someone’s top cap to replicate , it may make the fabrication process easier for them.

Realistic you might be far cheaper to buy someone’s old worn out or broken fork for parts, compare to what the machine shop rate is. Or unless you can find some backyard hobby guy. I use to get a lot of custom stuff built.

Thanks for the answers. I do have the original - it's just badly knarled.
The overseas purchase price for it seems crazy, plus shipping also.

I’m in the metal industry and work with a lot of machine shops. What they would have to charge you would be crazy. Everyone is super busy right now.

Anyone have an old (or broken) set of Zee's. The ceramic piston in mine cracked and Olympia is the only shop open today and of course they wont just sell a part (the piston), the brake without the cable or lever so I am stuck sourcing this out. Hopefully the other bike shops are actual mechanic shops that will sell parts and not just replace shit.

Shimano doesnt sell small parts - not Olympias fault. You can only buy the caliper. Buy complete brake, sell lever and hose.

So. In the old days. And yes I realize things are shittier now so no need to Mansplane that fact to me.:. Shops would keep old stuff for parts because you just nEver know. I think a more appropriate response would be they are all like that.

Or how about just a lever or just the brake or even a full system for a zee or a saint. It is absolutely the way business is done with biking now.

And again. I know it’s not just them. But I rather pay through the nose of the bike is down for weeks as I look for the part myself which completely defeats the purpose of a bike shop. You do get a good star fir statement of month as you don’t seem to comprehend my last comment


Anyone need anything from jensons. Looks like I may be ordering
