Escaping Winter in Utah - Chasing Trail Ep. 18
Been there multiple times and love it in southern Utah. Main word of advice though, bring your own beer and coffee! Mormons suck, everybody knows it, Colorado should annex Moab and surrounding areas.

Ask Pinkbike: Bears, Semi-Slicks, and Brakes
I always carry bear spray on longer remote rides and hikes but I also carry bear bangers. I carry bear bangers because i don't want things to escalate to where I need bear spray. Believe me, bear bangers have worked for me more times than I can remember with grizzly bears, as long as used properly, like straight up in the air. I should note I have never felt the need for anything with my many black bear encounters as they just poop and run! Never point it at the bear or at any trajectory other than straight up. Yes forest fires are a concern, thinking of trying out a compact air horn. As for cougars, where are you folks getting your info? With only two confirmed attacks of adults in all of NA, both of which were on Vancouver Island, I dare say it's a little overblown. Children and small dogs on the other hand.... There seems to me this weird reluctance to promote the use for them. Apart from kids mucking around, potential fires and dangerous misuse (all real concerns) they F'ing work!

I have a lightly used 32mm Fox Racing Shock F29 G3 100mm 29er fork and the Bontager Race Lite FCC wheel that came with it. Off of a 2011 Trek Superfly. All 9mm QR. Fork is in great shape as is the wheel, comes with new Maxxiss Ardent 2.4" and a Bontrager 29-2 2.1". I also have a whole X9 drivetrain, cranks, Avid Elixer brakes, Rhythm Elite seat post and evoke 2 saddle. Basically enough to build an entire bike minus the frame and rear wheel. All in 350.00

Point: E-Bikes Are Good for the Sport
This whole fiasco must be terminated as soon as possible. All federal and provincial jurisdictions who have power of authority must come out hard and concise in regards to E bikes. They are a motorized vehicle. Period. Any area where motorized vehicles are not permitted also includes E bikes. period. The multitude of wilderness advocacy groups, and pretty much all other trail user groups will slay mtn biking as a whole if allowed to grow. I support them wholly, even when they can be a little holier than thou if you know what I mean. I know it would be a disaster here in North Vancouver if E bikes got a foothold in the market and started to be a serious alternative to actually riding your damn mountain bike! If allowed to fester and grow the end result will be banning of all bikes. Period!
