"Lower Vista trails, below Tryumph, are 100% ready to go for this weekend. Trail crew has been out raking and rebuilding, and they should ride great. Access will be off of Zephyr lift, then via Tryumph. Pho-Dogg, Karpiel, Speed Control, Dog Bone, Sticks and Stones, Flameout, Manure Pile, Kickback and KT will all be open. There are still some large snow piles near the top of Zephyr, keeping those trails closed this weekend. Boondocks is 90% melted, and will be ready to go by July 9th, and hopefully sooner. Due the this winters snow pack, Livewire still has snow on the top of the trail, and will need some maintenance before it will open top to bottom. Work has begun on zone 6 and 7 of Livewire, and they should be ready to ride soon. Gypsy will be a few weeks, the section above spooky woods still has some snow where the ski run crosses. We will keep you informed of our progress and projected trail opening dates."
Keep the trials closed until I get home! I want primo trails, ya hear?!

Anyone doing the Tahoe Sierra 100?

20,000ft of climbing sounds fun.

Aint that the truth!

I took this pig...


And turned it into this one...


I'm actually very happy with the results though as an urban cruiser. I've been trying to put in at least 15-20 miles every other day and we just did the Russian Ridge trail this weekend and had a blast.

But at the end of the day the money that I saved fixing this one instead of buying a good used one 10 years newer would have bought me a $5 water bottle...if I borrowed $5 from somebody . But I learned a lot about how these things go together and that was valuable.

I'm keeping this one as my urban cruiser and looking for a nice FSR for the weekend trails. See you out there!

Sorry, No
I'm a firm believer in SC bikes (I ride a Nomad) but you might get just as much bang fo a lot less buck in a Giant.
Just my $0.02
