Our resident curmudgeon has spoken! 26 4 lyf also? Truth be told though- I’m not running a dropper currently. Too much bother for the small amount of use.

Yes definately still 26 on all the bikes....for life.....I dont subscribe to teenage texting....200 plus dollar seat posts have never interested me.....

Looks like 130mm+ at Cox hill in last 48hours.

On the radar. If the rain is heavy enough is it possible that the radar just isn't seeing through the storm? (No idea on the physics of this).


I wondered about that also. But- looking at the Bow Valley PP data-15 mm accumulated in 48 hours vs something like 35 in Canmore, and over 90 for Elbow Valley and Jumpingpound sites.

Best source: Me! I have a garage full of new and used parts I should sell!

Local: Bow and Ridley's have been good to me in the past few years. Both - especially Ridley's - will heavily discount clearance items if you're not looking for a highly specific item.

Online: Jenson and Competitive Cyclist have great customer service. On-One / Planet X has great prices and absurdly good sales, but beware of quirky shipping rates that jump unexpectedly based on price, item count, weight, and/or volume.

tbsbikeparts.com doesn’t have the largest selection, but if they have what you need, their prices are great. Plus, they’re Canadian (Kelowna).

Stay away from most of Edworthy. Needs a few days of wind and no rain to dry out.
East side is under water...
Bowmont was as good as it gets today. Dry and fun for a quick morning blast.
With the condition of Edworthy, didn't try east slopes. Might be similar in the low shady places.

If anyone has a portable handsaw there is a small tree across Long Distance north - just north of the cutblock on the north end. that and a couple sharp ended branches sticking partway onto the trail up that way as well. The trail itself was in great riding condition this AM.

Been working out there since the spring and this is the wettest I’ve ever seen the trails (Over 400 mm of rain in the area since May!). Please stay off them as they’re going to need at least a week (probably more) of dry weather to improve things. The GBCTA website has an update as of yesterday.

Thanks to both for the website...when google (or the searcher) fails ????

Hope there is one day this summer that it is usable so I can enjoy those snacks and beer.

Fine conditions at moose for an early Thursday evening ride. Riverview-elbow-familyguy-shaft.
2 bears spotted by others along the road, up from Ings.
