Destination Showcase: Detroit Lakes & Cuyuna, Minnesota
@Epaul2011: Thanks - I grew up in Duluth and know all the trails very well. The machine-built tracks in Mission, Piedmont, and Lester are fine from a technical perspective, but the hills are not kid-friendly. They don't have the leg strength or cardio to ride very long with that kind of climbing. The Traverse at Haines and Spirit Mt. have some quick out and back rides that are relatively flat, but those sections are quite short. Cuyuna has more flat-ish miles than all of Duluth and TC combined.

@laudenbach12: The trail dries super fast after rain. It's very easy to determine trail conditions by just looking at the weather. There's zero need for daily updates from the trail itself. Also, I don't see the vehicle fee as an issue at all. It's dirt cheap for a day pass ($7) and there's an annual option ($35) if you ride there frequently. The State does pour a ton of resources into the facility. Paying for the pass is the least I can do to support the area.

@CycleKrieg: I brought my 8-y.o. son up to Cuyuna last week. We stayed at TrueNorth and had a great few days on the trails. It's a spectacular destination for family riding. There aren't many kid-friendly miles in the Twin Cities or Duluth.

Gene-O owns a shop a couple miles from my house. He's still the man!

First Look: Ibis' Longest, Slackest, and Burliest Ripley
@Svinyard: It's a definite trade off in nimbleness and agility at normal pedaling speeds on flat/undulating terrain. There is no free lunch.

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
@Explodo: 220lbs here. Love my 3.0" on the trail hardtail! 16lbs front, 18 lbs rear is perfect for me.

First Ride: Santa Cruz Megatower
Like "Pony Rustler" and "Ripmo", but much worse. Who comes up with these garbage names?

First Ride: Salsa's New Spearfish and Horsethief
This article had a lot of great background info, but man, talk about mailing it in in terms of "first ride" impressions. Three run-on, vague sentences to describe three different bikes. Why bother posting anything if that's the amount of effort and info you're willing to hand out? This is completely worthless in terms of learning anything at all about how the bikes ride.
