Old fart still riding trails,
still learning, still crashing,
still digging, still loving it!

Agreed, and props for having the kahunas to hit that slope! You can see he's wedged his arse crack in the rear wheel and is squeezing tight, just hit a soft patch and taken a digger. Other than choosing a different line, what else could you do?

@nvranka: This is why people who guinea pig runs have my utmost respect. Someone has to be the first.

MilKit Tire Sealant Injector - Review
Yup, I bought a box of 5 x 60ml syringes off ebay, use them for different jobs (forks, sealant, brakes). Think it was about $10 delivered. Tip: The flexible rubber tubing used for dripper systems fits perfectly over tyre valves (once core is removed), bleed nipples, and even inside fork lowers.

And zero f*cks were given for the "no transfers" signage. Love ya work :) Was lucky enough to score a ride there last month whilst on a work trip to Toronto. Friendly staff and riders, even for us old farts. Great set up. Had to fly back to Australia the next day and was in struggle town, but would do it again in a heart beat. Hopefully not sucking so much next time!

Exposure MaXx-D Mk8 light - Review
I don't think anyone is, rather they're suggesting an inferior product at a much cheaper price is a valid option. The cheap lights made today are superior to the expensive lights made only 5+ years ago, and when 4 of these lights would come close to what my whole bike cost, I couldn't justify it.

10 Questions with Velofix
Pros need the fancy tools, as they get used a lot, so need to last and also might be faster or easier to use, but if you're only pressing the occasional headset (or whatever) then cheaper or DIY tools should be fine. I spent ~$150AUD ($100US) on a headset remover, press, crown race remover and installer which all work well, and I feel way more comfortable than using a hammer and screwdriver as some friends do :)

The Destruction and Story of the Tadpole Trails
Or seeing if there are any mtb friendly organisations (government or private) in the area that you can work with? More work initially, but you've got a much better chance of having a long-term and sustainable trail as a result. Where I live, around 10 years ago there were loads of problems between riders building illegal trails and locals (walkers, nearby residents, etc.), so bad that nasty traps were being set and it was inevitable that someone would end up seriously hurt or killed. The local council was approached, actually they were pretty much swamped by hundreds of riders :) and fast forward to today, and we now have one of, if not the best, trail network in Adelaide, with more coming. Local councils e.g. and state bodies e.g. are on board, getting funded and co-ordinating between themselves, and we have professional trail builders and volunteers also working pretty well. Good luck!
