Ya, like I get that they’re trying to drag you into their site… but as a marketing professional there’s just no excuse for not including photos of the shoes on your release. That’s just… well… I don’t know what that is, but it’s bad.

Pirelli's New $37 SmarTubes Are Claimed to be 70% Lighter Than Butyl Inner Tubes
@likeittacky: Again, on my local 2 to 3 hour rides... no one "needs" a tube. A walk out is 10 to 40 minutes from anywhere in the trail network. My buddies all carry their own tubes and generally my solo rides are typically dawn patrols where I literally don't see another rider. On longer, bigger, further afield rides or racing, and even at the bike park, I carry a tube and have absolutely given my tube to a stranger who needed it.. multiple times. I've also helped numerous riders from adults to kids change their tube or fix an issue with my muti-tool... I've given out many of my zip ties that I carry and even let people use my pump and even my CO2 once. So fuck off with your stupid comment and shitty assumptions... I'm probably one of the least selfish riders out there... dick. Also, who's more selfish, the rider who has his set-up so dialed that he doesn't need to carry a tube... or the rider who's bike is shittly maintained, doesn't ride with inserts, doesn't check their pressures and yet still doesn't carry a tube and then relies on other riders to give them a tube when they need it? Ha... fuck off with your stupid bulshit...

I just rented a shockwiz from my local shop for $40 for 3 days. Best $40 I've ever spent... worked great and let me see what making tweaks did and felt like so I know what to do when I change riding terrain/areas.

It can log in to the Bill Gates 5G chip that was implanted into your brain via the vaccine and broadcast your tire pressures to "Big Tube". No telling what they'll be able to do with that information!!

Yep me too. Unless I'm racing or on a farther away/big ride... I don't bother with a tube.

@paulmyork: Cumberland is pretty awesome! Love it up there. I complain pretty profusely, but it's not like it's horrible over here, the sanctioned trails at Hartland have improved quite a bit (thanks SIMBS!), and the unsanctioned ones are some of the best trails I've ever ridden. We do have ample riding areas: Hartland, Partridge Hills, Skirt Mountain, and Harbourview in the CRD, while Burnt Bridge, Mt Tzouhalem, Maple Mountain, Prevost, Cobble Hill, Tansky and the Firehall Trails are all within an hour (that's 11 riding areas all within an hour). The new Jordie Lunn bike park is about to open and it looks like it'll be insane!! We already have the North Sannich Freeride Jump Park which they've done a ton of work on and is super fun...and there are 3 other bike parks around the CRD in various stages of development. It's just beyond frustrating (especially as a tourism professional) to see the opportunity we have to build out what could be one of the best riding areas in BC, just ignored and wasted. The area around Hartland is so unique and provides some of the coolest trails I've ever ridden. Sigh... maybe my kids will be able to get shit done.

Sounds like what's happening in Victoria. The CRD (Capital Regional District) is unwilling to commit to an appropriate mtb trails management plan. As a result some amazing unsanctioned trails have been built over the past few years that see more use than the sanctioned trails. Every once in while, the CRD comes through and takes out an unsanctioned trail... but a week or two or three later it's back up and running even better than it was before it was destroyed. We even have an amazing "unsanctioned" climb trail! (FYI - when visiting Victoria, if you want to ride some of the best trails in BC... the heat map is your best friend.) Word is getting around to find ways to support our unsanctioned trail builders because, after 20 years of inaction the CRD is still unwilling to adopt a formal plan that allows for proper management of the trails, new builds and adoption of some long standing, incredibly well built and sustainable unsanctioned double black trails... we'll just keep building and riding what we need and want. This is how almost all the current riding areas and assns were formed... almost all trails were "unsanctioned" at one time. It's part of how and why municipal bike parks were built. Hell... going back to the 90's... the only reason we have the abundance of skateparks we do is because municipalities got tired of dealing with skaters wrecking everything and the liability involved. A bunch of fat old white councilors who have never ridden a bike off-road beyond a rented cruiser on a flat gravel path how zero idea of what mountain biking is... and generally seem totally unwilling to listen and learn. This is what they get. So, you go kids... keep building!! Fuck the man... man. PS. It should also be mentioned that the South Island Mountain Bike Society (SIMBS) is doing the best they can... and I feel for them... just banging their heads against a wall.
