Social Roundup: Bikes & Boards - 14 Amazing Dual Sport Athletes
@mfoga: You may have some argument with twin tips. Side cut evolved from ski racing and was a thing as far back as the 70’s, the only limiting factor there was always torsional stiffness (also nailed down from ski racing) Once side flex was addressed everyone had short radius stuff. Thank people like the Mahre bros and Bode Miller for that.

Field Test: Enduro vs Force 29 vs Slayer vs Mojo HD5 vs SB165 - 2020 Enduro Bikes
That all depends where in the east you ride it. Lots of spots warrant a bike like the enduro.

Video: Tackling Mt. Washington the Hard Way
@WoodenCrow: I'm lucky enough to have grown up in the whites, and currently live here. I agree that these areas are sacred, but the argument 'We just don't need more people up there" is total crap. If you have spent any time in the alpine zone, and in particular on Washington, you will quickly realize that its nothing but stacked rocks.. its a big rockpile. Given this reality, you would have to do a ton of rockstacking to make something rideable which would in essence make it mandatory to stay on specified track, if you want to stay on your bike at least. As far as hiking trails vs mtb trails go, sure there is a ton of rider induced braiding on your southern New England trails, and on flatter trails up here as well. Things are very different on DH trails in the mountains though, its typically more difficult to get off track than it is to stay on when it comes to most mtb specific trails in the mountains. Again, hike any popular hiking trail in the whites these days and you will see how outrageously braided and blown out they are. Most of our local popular hiking trails here in North Conway are two tracks at this point.

@projectnortheast: Absolutely, great video! These hike a bikes are the best, so many classics in the area. To be clear my comment was directed at coldspringier. The idea that bikes do not belong in alpine zones is wrongheaded, if the land managers do not specifically forbid bikes you are in the clear. In fact, an existing trail reworked for mtb’s off the top of Washington would NOT be as difficult to pull off as most think. It would also have significantly less impact to the alpine zone than most hiking trails as mtb’s stick to the designated path much better than hikers, never mind that it’s essentially impossible to get off the trail up there with a bike. Hike any hiking trail in the whites right now and you will see what I’m talking about, compared to a mtb specific trail they are brutal.. The fact that we have people on an mtb specific forum suggesting we should not be riding in alpine zones (in legal areas) is mind boggling when a paved road and train are open daily dumping hundreds of people up there who tramp around the alpine zone like a bunch of lemmings and cause actual damage. Imagine a rideable trail from the top of Washington. 4500’ of vert. There would be nothing like it in the east.

Riiight. Because the paved road and THE FREAKING TRAIN that pump hundreds of tourist’s up there every hour isn’t a big deal? God forbid Mtb’s. It’s about time we had a legit trail Designed specifically for bikes in the alpine zone. STOP acting like This is some Kind of sacred area given the circus that exists up high.
