So much trail envy, there's nothing like that within hundreds of miles of me. I'm really gonna need to start basing my traveling around riding.

What do you guys use for bike bag/case when flying?

I like the Dakine one. Mainly just make sure it's got individual pockets.
Dakine bike bag here as well. Fit a large 27.5 fine with room to spare.

You think you’d fit a longer wheelbase 29r in there?

We’ve got an Evoc one and it works... don’t know anything different so can’t say whether it’s good or bad.

I don’t see why not. Length didn’t seem to be too tight. What bike? I can check the length vs mine.

Process 153 29 with a -2 degree headset. About 1260mm wheelbase ... though removing the fork would be possible too.

I've seen very large dh bikes fit in the evoc bags without issue.

All good to know. It's such a long winter here and there are a lot of deals on flights to AZ.

Sorry to say it BBLB. But I don't travel with bike ever. I just stay around here and ride.

Pics are of a cabin we built on crown land. About 12 years ago. It's a bit of a responsibility. Lots of folks come to a cabin once it exists. And they shit. And if we don't keep it up and the outhouse becomes full, there will be shit and shit tickets all over the place.

So a bit like the magician's apprentice, we got it going, and now we are on the hook to keep it up.
We just did the same with our sled club cabin. Shitter was full to the top.

What do you do then? Dig new hole? Build a new shitter? Burn down the old one?
Pretty much , Capped the old pit with a huge rock with the help of a mini ex, and burnt the building. Dug new hole and built built new shack.

Got to ride a trust fork tonight, buddy has it mounted to a Spec. Enduro, I think I want one. It is very different, one big thing was no Bob when climbing.

Had the same thoughts. We just booked flights and an Airbnb in Phoenix for a week in March.

Well you rather then me. I never ridden with 1, but they for sure are not as good looking as normal forks.
Also I dont think it will be very good for downhill racing, so not interested in it.

We’re in the south for six months chasing sun other than a ski trip back home for a few weeks in the new year...

We’ll be in Utah for another week maybe as long as the weather holds... Nevada and Arizona up next. Will keep an eye out for old farts in the desert Southwest.

Made an awesome ragtag random gang of eight canuckistanian old schoolers today to get crispy together riding bikes under the sun in Moab followed by copious Mexican... nomnomnom

Hmm, 1260 is significantly longer than my patrol. I'm away right now but I can measure it when I get back home. I bought the Dakine bag for $500 locally a couple years ago. At the time a comparable Evoc, was around $700 at MEC. The Dakine bag is really solid and well thought out. My buddy has the Evoc XL and I was equally impressed with that bag as well.

Lever... that cabin you built with your spare time and money is a absolute dream palace... even without plumbing!
