Ahhhhh, yes, That would explain things more clearly then. We're not referencing the same spots. Aside from some maintenance and helping those locals, I've not done much digging at the spot you're thinking of. In the interview, we're referencing a different spot entirely.

I'm totally unaware, but not at all surprised we've not been contacted. Would be happy to be consultant on any such project as few know the terrain as well as we do.

*disclaimer - aside from the last clip, all of this goodness was already in Eagle's trail inventory well before we got our grimy little hands involved here. There is a pretty healthy advocacy scene in Eagle and the good people in the Hardscrabble Trails Coalition are responsible for a lot of the trails you see in this vid.

FWIW, I've had good luck with the casing on Control tires over the years. Also, since Race Face bills these wheels as being appropriate for "xc/trail/enduro", I felt I should utilize a variety of tire casings in the test.
Right with you on having a rounder tire profile.

Everyone's an expert. Sheesh. Having ridden 5 of the 6 recommended, I can confirm everyone should go ride there. Some truly great riding. Must be winter time and people are looking for something to bitch about. Go change your damper oil, whiners.

Added a comment about press release 2015 Pro GRT Receives UCI Status, Will Be Broadcast 11/25/2014 9:25 PM
C50_91639130_1248750604

It's about goddamned time that USAC stepped up to offer UCI points at races here in the U.S. It's only about 15 years too late. Thanks to them ignoring the DH discipline here, they've almost killed the sport for us Americans. Thanks to Jill and Bryn for going to represent our sport at recent USAC meetings. Maybe they're finally starting to listen.

C50_91639130_1248750604

I'll be the first to admit I don't really care how a bike pedals up hills. That said, I think this thing pedals quite capably. I will say, that my flat pedals combined with the low BB ensure I am a bit pickier when climbing tech stuff. Climbing rocky notches and that have become a thinking man's game for me now (not my strong suit). Whatever shortcomings it may have in that regard are quickly forgotten once the bike points down the track. It's simply amazingly fun to ride.

I was lucky enough to get one of the early new Nomads and I can tell you that with a 160mm Pike and Minion DHF exo 2.35 tires, the head angle measure out to 66. I'm assuming 65 is measurement for a 180mm fork.

Although I did stiffen up my suspension for this track, in retrospect, I might have gone even a little stiffer. Don't think it would have helped with my confidence though, just with skipping across the bumps.

yeah, it's an old style Burgtec. 60mm. They like them because they're stiff and reliable.
