Win A Yeti SB140 and Support Colorado's Trails
@stravaismyracecourse: Do you think that COMBA is trying to spend as much as possible to build trails? I understand that other places with other regulations seem to be able to build cheaper, but the combination of the required high amounts of rock work (not something they have to deal with in the PNW) and typical land manager requirements that all trail construction be completed by "qualified" and insured professional trail construction companies drive up the cost. Local trail managers used to allow volunteer groups to build trail with limited guidance, but those times are long gone on the FR. One of my friends, back in the 90's when he was a teacher, led a group of students to build the Morrison Slide trail at Matthew Winters. Full volunteer projects like that are no longer permitted. Land managers are too worried about potential liability. So yes, just like everything else in life, trails cost way more than we'd like. The question is, are they worth the investment? And, will you actually start helping grow the MTB culture here by supporting COMBA?

@sspiff: Maybe our trail quality to potential ratio on the FR is way off, not because COMBA doesn't know what they are doing or how to ride a bike, but because so may of the thousands of avid riders on the FR are really good at complaining, but don't actually donate time or money to the sport they say they love. There are over 25,600 members of the Front Range MTB group on Facebook, but only about 2000 COMBA members. If you want your trail organization to have more influence and be able to change public land managers minds about directional bike only, purpose built trail networks, the least thing you could do was empower your local MTB advocacy group with your actual support instead of whining like an entitled brat that their hard work isn't up to your hard core standards. COMBA is fighting for influence against much larger, better funded hiking/hunting/equine groups for access to every acre of public land on the FR.

I think you're confusing JeffCO Open Space decisions with COMBA. COMBA has made significant improvements over the last few years to partner with land managers to build new mountain bike areas including Floyd Hill, Maryland Mountain, Warren Gulch, Rutabaga Ridge at Lair, North Elk Creek connecting Cub Creek to Staunton and others. Funding and the new trail builds for Virginia Canyon in Idaho Springs are a huge win for mountain bikers. I agree that the changes on upper Belcher and Deer Creek are a huge step back, but COMBA can't force land managers to consider their input or help when they make changes on their open space trails. Since COMBA is a volunteer organization, feel free to pitch in to make it better.

@Mtn-Goat-13: I love that you've never ridden one and still have definitive opinions on eMTB's. Trust me, ebikes, especially full power, big battery heavy bikes feel really different than traditional mountain biking. It honestly feels like a blend between a mountain bike and a 250cc dirt bike on a trail. Landing jumps has that solid planted suspension feeling like a dirt bike, and the workout is completely different. I love my Levo, trust me, I feel zero need to apologize. Despite loving it, it's definitely different, and personally, my ego isn't threatened to say that I'm having a great time riding my mountain moped. I don't know why everyone is so scared to say that they are different activities/sports.

I like the attempt to avoid saying "ebike". I personally hate when people call mountain bikes "Acoustic". As a disclaimer, I own and love my Levo as a complement to my mountain bikes. But it's basically a different activity. I'm sure it doesn't maintain the "hard core" vibe, but why don't we just call them what they are "Mountain Mopeds"????

Six Ways To Make Mountain Biking Less Expensive
@kcy4130: Since space tourism is his new "business", I'm sure his trip to space was used as a tax write-off.

Despite my stable of bikes that I've spent way too much on, my mountain biking addiction is way cheaper than wake boarding habit. It's the most expensive hobby possible....except horses!

2022 Pinkbike Awards: Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
Is it just me or is there a recurring pattern of Trek copying Specialized, then winning a "______ of the year" award. First, the blatantly ripped off Specialized's in frame SWAT storage.... they win innovation of the year. Next the completely copy the Stumpjumper EVO's adjustable geo..... they win bike of the year. Trek must pay there engineers top dollar for all of their "innovations".
