Industry Nine Expands S-Series Wheel Range
@lolodialsbikes: "Southwest dry gravel paths" hahaha. The elitism of PNW riders is hysterical. I took a break from Arizona to ride trails peripheral to Seattle last year and, in terms of difficult trail features, it was a vacation.

Red Bull Formation Cancelled For 2023
Thank you for being the one to come out and say it. The hypocrisy of demanding others to support a cause or sport that one fails to support themselves is so painful.

First Ride: Forbidden Druid V2 - High Pivot Evolution
@stevemokan: What do you think is going on between the Yeti sb140 (with 29" wheels) and this Druid that might make the Druid so much better when pointed down?

First Ride: Forbidden Druid V2 - High Pivot Evolution
For those who understand the finer points of head tube angles better than I do: I remember when PB did that 2023 Yeti sb140 review and really critiqued the bike's spastic handling on the steep BC descents, citing a 65.4 deg HT angle, among other things. The V2 Druid has a 65 deg HT angle, and it's being lauded as this incredible, enduro-esque descender. Does the 0.4 degrees truly make all the difference in the world? Is there more to it? Is PB building up a hometown BC brand in the same way the Arizona locals love Pivot, and trashing the "big guy" in the process?

Video: Brice Shirbach Explores Unfamiliar Territory in 'Underexposed'
@BullyPatrol: 1.) I did see the rock work on lower Bugs and that was awesome. Thank you, sincerely. 2.) I recently (in the last 24 hours) learned about how extensive the maintenance restrictions were on Bigelow related to the Mexican spotted owl mating period -that's an obscene amount of time smack dab in the middle of the riding season where no one is allowed to go to work up there. I have no idea how to work around that considering one would make progress for a month's worth of riding, then winter will just undo it. When it comes to this kind of red tape, I definitely feel for you. Do you think that more voices at a meeting with the FS would help to pare these restrictions back? It seems like some of the biologists they bring in are all but fabricating data on certain animals in order to combat the mtb user group.

@BullyPatrol: This question admittedly comes from a place of ignorance, but why doesn't SDMB or a more productive organization claim 99% of the Mount Lemmon area, and the people from TORCA funnel their efforts into the large conflict of interest that is HomeGrown, such that you only work on the trails you profit from by shuttling? That's truly an area your organization has mastered.

@2csonrider: The FS kicks your teeth in because you are running what should be a professional organization, but act like children in the midst of adversity.

@BullyPatrol: The day your organization can demonstrate real, tangible progress with the FS is the day I'll start showing up to meetings and dig days on my days off. For the time being, you post more about HomeGrown's shuttle days and real progress up at Hawes than progress of your own. The fact that the Tucson community is already as divided on your organization as it is should probably mean something to you.

@2csonrider: Look at how this conversation is going right now -I acknowledged that the Forest Service is difficult to work with, citing that as a reason that new trails don't get built (which is my main issue) and you come at me with ad hominem calling me an armchair quaterback. I've donated to TORCA when I'm tired from working like a dog at the hospital, but still want to contribute. I put my money where my mouth is. But you guys act like loose cannons whenever people have input that challenges an idea or project of yours. On the topic of new trails alone: either it's the USFS who's the problem, or it's you. I blame the USFS and you still get angry...so which is it?

@2csonrider: Yeah, by gridlock I mean the lack of new trails cut in despite efforts to plan them. When I say that, I'm acknowledging that the USFS hasn't made anything easy for you / TORCA. Regardless of who or what is to blame, it's still a shame. As for trail days, working between 50 and 80 hours/week doesn't make me want to go work on Red Ridge or Fantasy Island -trails I never ride. Giving people a little freedom to take rakes and shovels to more popular trails on their own time or at night would be a cool solution, but there might be limitations to that too. You won't see me raking Fantasy Island on my only day off.
