Video: Ibis's New Aluminum Ripley is More Metal, More Slacker
Get a killer set of carbon wheels and you will drop weight and drastically transform the performance of the bike. I’ve ridden all types of sleds and never thought I’d be riding a 6” travel bike weighing under 30lbs, but with the modern geometry, etc., I don’t even notice the extra 3-5 lbs. I’m stuck on enduro for now until something comes out better: I’m all smiles (:

First Look: New Gear from POC for 2021
Bought the Tectal Race Spin as yes most expensive helmet I’ve ever bought but also best helmet. Had an over the handle bar not long after I bought it and then was a fairly serious crash that could have caused a broken bone or two. I hit my head of course but didn’t even notice it like other crashes in the past. The fall shock me up pretty good. Only a small scratch. Great investment. Also had a a thread lose of head strapped and emailed POC and the sent me a replacement even though it’s wasn’t really necessary.

Local Flavours: The Complete Guide to Riding in Tallahassee, Florida
I’m the opposite: lived up north for over 30 years and got tired of freezing temperatures, low humidity and snow shoveling, then moved to central Florida and enjoy the hot temperatures and humid weather. It was 36F last night. Besides decent local trails and great bike clubs I get to occasionally catch a few waves from a Hurricane swell or Northeastern. Can’t afford living in California so this will have to do for now. And like you said GA and NC aren’t too far away. There is one thing I hate in Florida: the drivers. :)

Local Flavours: The Complete Guide to Riding in Tallahassee, Florida
@briceshirbach: been riding MTB for over 15 years and thought the same about only riding hardtail or short travel on the trails I listed. However, came across a great deal on a 2015 Giant Reign and got it down to 28lbs with Vorsprung coil conversion. Only thing I run into as being an issue around here is the low BB. Use every inch of travel... Also, my back is shot with spinal stenosis, herniated discs, etc., so maybe that’s one reason I enjoy it. Likely buy a shorter travel bike since they are getting more progressive, longer, slacker, etc. Link below has some of the bikes being built for local trails:

Go farther south and you can ride through old phosphate mines at Balm Boyette and Alafia River State Park and then there is Santos with their new flow trail. Boyette has a trail named Ridgeline, which is one of the best trails in Florida. Plenty of YouTube coverage of these epic trails. Not sure about the comment on short travel bikes, I wouldn’t ride any of these trails without an enduro bike. Many of the riders in the area ride enduro bikes, which is helpful on the black diamond and double diamonds.

Chris King PRESS FIT 24 w/ New Bearings

$50 USD
CK PRESS FIT 24 with stainless bearings was taken off my 2015 Giant Reign Advanced 0, which was purchased in 2017 and is a custom build. The BB was installed and removed by local bike mechanic, which was matched with a SRAM XO crankset. Will come with the parts from the fit kit. BB was sent to Chris King the end of last year for a complete overhaul and bearings replacement. Smooth as butter!!! Recently upgraded my drivetrain to SRAM eagle and used a SRAM BB. The listed price is firm and includes shipping costs.
