Local Flavours: The Complete Guide to Riding in Brevard, NC
@PJSANAB: full black mountain with stops and those pesky climbs in the middle with a crew takes about 30 min. Personally I like to savor the descents and not redline straight through. I assure my descending speed is fine, as the 30 minutes has always included waiting for the people. My overall point is that you get actual long sustained descents in Pisgah whereas KT you don't and its a freaking runway anyway.

Kingdom Trails over pisgah?! I am from close to Kingdom, and have traveled to pisgah. Pisgah blows KT out of the water, as it has more than just 4 foot wide paved flat trails for 95% of the network. You have 1000 foot uninterrupted descent as opposed to like 300 at most on Darling hill. Kingdom is great don't get me wrong, but the variety, tech, and elevation available at pisgah makes it far more fun to ride in my opinion. Not to mention, the direction Kingdom is going is more easy flow for Quebecois families to come pedal. Now the if you include Trails on the mountain, and Victory (rip) you have more of a case. But as someone who goes to each spot about the same amount per year, Pisgah is a lot more better. One Black Mountain alone, you have steep tech that gives away to rough flowier tech that gives way to kingdom like flow. You get 30 minutes of descending for the price of one long climb which is unheard of at KT.

UPDATE: Fundraiser Set Up for Windhill Bike Park After Suspected Arson Attack
Wouldn't Isolationist brexit supporters support a local alternative to the bigger mountains and bike parks on the continent?

YT Launch Limited Edition Top Spec Raw Aluminium Capra 29
This "high end specced" beauty comes with e13 wheels? I get that they need to keep the price down, and that e13 must give them an incredible oem deal but it pains me to imagine buying that bike only to have the wheel dent up and go untrue in 3 rides.

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
The lockout point is just so nitpicky. Lockout has colloquially come to mean the act of putting your fork and shock in its stiffest position.

First Ride: Santa Cruz Megatower
I just got one, But I am not as Remorseful as I thought I would be. The S build LT I have is 2 lbs lighter than the mega tower s build. Also, for 90% of the rides I do the Shorter travel,1 degree steeper Hightower LT is more than enough. The only times I would want anything more is the 3 enduros I race a year and collegiate Downhill races. Also My S build Hightower msrps for $500 less than the S build mega tower. It looks like a great bike, But I am happy with my purchase. I may of course be biased because I am fresh off of a week in Pisgah on it.
