I wonder why and when that changed.....I always stop in Walmarts on the road and have a sleep in the back of my truck.

That's odd, I live in Comox and am sure I've seen people parked there in their RVs and such. Maybe it did change.

Nah she's probably right haha just seems odd to me. Normally Walmarts let you stay overnight.

Hey guys I just moved to vic and have a dh was wondering if there's any trails around mt Doug

Posted: Oct 9, 2016 at 9:48 Quote
Looking at xtr brakes and not sure about race or trail version. I'm riding a ro rocky mountain altitude 750msl weighing 26lbs and 6oz(might be at 26lbs soon) and me I'm about 155-160 lbs all geared up. My riding style is trail to aggressive trails technical singletrack but not the most aggressive/experience rider. Last year was using slx brakes on a 32lbs+ 29er and was working fine for me. Not intending do any lift serve riding in near future just cumberland style of riding.
Thanks also anybody tried the ardent race 27.5x2.35 as a rear tire in cumberland as for summer tire?

I would go for the trail version. I really find the tool free lever adjust useful as the lever position will change slightly as pads wear ect. The only real advantage of the race version is a super marginal weight loss. On this note XT's are better value and are essentially the same in function...

I'll just put this here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOcKxywUxfY

Although bikes aren't allowed, there are definitely trails up there

Yes, it's not recommended, but should be OK as long has you have good tires. There are a couple steep hills towards the end, but as long as you kept momentum up, should be OK. Some of the side roads (getting to Mr T) have sizable potholes though, should be careful.
