Texas Gets its First Lift-Access Bike Park
@lardo5150: Word is Mt. Magazine (highest point in the state) is getting lift served trails. Last thing I heard is there isn't enough work force to make the project happen quick enough so they are recruiting. I don't know the exacts, but I don't see why there can't be 900'-1200' of elevation loss on that mountain. Maybe upwards of 1500'.

5 Riding Resolutions for 2019
That's a good goal regardless of age. Too many of my friends have been permanently injured or even killed from cycling. I say you can rocks off and be safe. Less shuttles/lifts and more climbing. Keeps things in check IMO

Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
Yeah. I suspect the "delays" on the XTR 12spd has something to do with whatever is going on here

Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
@Gregorysmithj1: I'm not blaming the LBS at all!! I'm blaming Shimano for the predicament that the lbs is in!

@sherbet: Shimano has created this problem for themselves, as well as your LBS. Sure, your biggest customers get the deepest discounts.. That's how it works across the board in virtually every aspect of sales. As a small business owner I sell products that are also sold online and in big box stores (Husqvarna outdoor products). Husqvarna has deeper discounts for dealers who buy more, but they also require you to stick to the minimum advertised price policy they have in place for selling online regardless of if you're a base line dealer or a platinum dealer. A super high volume dealer can get up to a 6% deeper discount than me, and they could easily sell at my cost and be perfectly happy making a 6% margin, which is I'm sure what's happening with CRC. They probably don't wanna confront CRC, but now they're surely catching unbelievable flak from distributors like QBP who are trying to sell to bike shops at what CRC sells direct to us. It has to end for the sake of bike shops.

My oldest (just hit 4) just graduated from his balance bike to a pedal bike. I should have did it sooner, he was pedaling by himself within 5 minutes of getting his new Trek Precaliber. Don't think I've grinned that big in a very long time. Teaching your little ones to ride a bike is one of my favorite experiences as a parent so far.

Lee McCormack's Guide to Finding the Handlebar Width Sweet-Spot
Wondering the same thing. I'm a hair over 6' (72.5") but my wingspan is nearly 6'5. I have never rode a bike with wider bars than 800mm but I feel comfortable with anything over 760mm.
