Re: Hiya!

Really sorry to see you go Joe, big loss for the club. It was a pleasure to work with you on several club projects over the years especially when you were Prez. :thumbsup: Please don't tell us your new closest riding area is going to be the castle.

Re: Safe, Secure on Trail, in Camp

I use a In Reach device from Delorme satellite communicator. Has proven to be very handy but costs even when not in use. I have enough tools to fix a broken chain, flat tires, spare levers, spare shifter, miscellaneous nuts and bolts, tie straps, duct tape, grip wire, electrical tape, wrenches, All...

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

One issue with the 2017 Hardparts Low seat is the foam was not designed correctly. Instead of removing most of the foam from the bottom at the seat base, they just shaved the top. It is 15mm lower, but short leg riders will only notice that from the seat to the pegs, from the seat to the ground it i...

This helps with gas mileage. Make sure the top of the loop is not to high.

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

At 5' 6" your wife should not need it much lower on the XCW 150. My son is just out of mini bikes and is only 5' 4" riding off-road on a SX 150, re sprung for his weight and 107mm sag with no lower and he can touch really well. The linkage SX does sit lower than XCW but than can be fixed w...

Re: Looking for 2017 300 Jetting Advice

I agree with Dirtyboy in that these JD kits are close but still need some tweaking. Have one in a 2017 SX 150. You did not mention your Air screw setting. I would start with turning your AS to 3 or 3 1/2 out [ for MTN riding], if this helps put in a 27.5 pilot. Also try the 2.5 needle position. Befo...

Re: Lone Ranger/outlaw trail

I do not own a GPS but a wild guess is LR = 3 1/2 km, Outlaw = 2 1/2 km.

Re: Just a little problem... loading and unloading the bike

This is why you stand on the left side of the bike. It is much easier to operate the front brake and in turn help keep the bike straighter as you back down.

Re: Easy Beginner Ride?

If you go to Wildrose or any Moto track besides the obvious of not cutting across the track or going backwards [they all have directional arrowed signs] rule number one is never ever pull over for a faster rider coming up behind you, you will get plowed. Hold your line and they will commit to going ...

Re: Just a little problem... loading and unloading the bike

Try and park with your tail gate as low as possible. Set up the ramp and place a milk crate beside the ramp for a foot step. Stand on the left [shifter side] of the bike. Use the front brake to slowly back the bike down the ramp. This is how most riders un-load.

Re: Strava?

I hope we don't see in Dirt Biking around here. It has caused some serious issue's in certain MTB area's with turning the multi use trails into race courses. e.g. you can not slow to a crawl to pass a horse or Hiker, you have to race by them at race pace, as well as running other MTBers off the trai...

Re: Best Woods Bike for Shorter Women

Another vote for the Freeride or a 150 XCW, leave the stock seat and lower the suspension slightly, very light flickable bike with E-start. I have spent alot of time building a 2017 XC150 from a 2017 SX150. Bike runs very clean with good bottom end power, so I have some good set up tricks for the 15...

Spent a week their. Did not see any more Random camping closures other than what was in my OP. Not sure of the Random camping status at the big dunes and south of their along the lake to the boarder. More trail closure signage went up, however signed or not, all singletrack and non hardpacked two tr...
