Reply to Silent or LOUD Hubs? 9/14/2012 9:07 AM

I'm from Canada (from the prairie provinces) and our local ski hill used to be open for mountain biking in the summer but just recently had to shut down as they could not even break even. Although mountain biking is gaining popularity, I think freeride/DH ... more »
