Nice, have a good ride! I hit a nice loop at starr pass tuesday and took a minor spill that reminded me why I needed to order new gloves! Ordered a set of the Race Black Fox Dirtpaws from hucknroll yesterday. Cant wait for them to come in!

Awesome, this will be first set. I had some Digits before but the new design blows so I went for something different. I cant see spending more than $25 on a pair of gloves.

Thanks! I bought these after my crash, hopefully I don't need to use them. they see m very sturdy and I know they would have prevented my last injury if I had them at the time.

So my ride was more or less a success, only crashed once. Lol , took a turn wide and tried to get back on trail hit a dip and flew over the handle bars but landed on my feet, to my surprise. My big eye opening moment is how much stamina I have lost since last year. The sun also wore me out. I'm going back out in a couple weeks, need to improve my skills or lack there of.

I was on the news last night about the petition to get the PC trails opened for night riding. Hells yeah! If you guys haven't signed it yet, please do!

http://www.tucsonnewsnow.com/link/55...in-bike-riding

Anyways, i got to test out my Dirtpaws for the first time yesterday with mixed reviews. Fox definitely seems to have dropped their quality standards as they just feel cheap compared to my old Digits. However, they are still fairly comfortable and seemed to breath pretty decent. We'll see how they hold up when the heat starts to crank up.

So I'm in the market for a new bike and I wanted to test a few out before I buy...

I rented a 2012 Trek X-Caliber and I have it till tomorrow. Put about 7.5 miles on it at FI this afternoon and man, what a difference compared to my 26" Avalanche 1.0!!! Holy crap!

I have a 2010 specialized stumpjumper fsr 29er. You wont catch me going back to 26in wheels anytime soon. Good luck on buying a new bike, my recommendation would be to check CL or Ebay. I have had really good luck with buying pretty much new bikes for dirt cheap.

That's too bad. We have a specialized featured bike shop in town with a pretty good selection in Flag. What's your price range?

I was trying to stay around 1500 but I know a stumpy comp29er will jump me to the low 2k's. Honestly that would probably be too much bike for me. I'm upgrading from a '09 Gt Avalanche 1.0 (v-brake edition). I'd really love to try a 2x10 or 1x10 setup too. 3x9/10 just seems like a waste.

Did you try global bikes? They are mainly EV but specialized is all they sell.

Goodluck, I test rode a stumpjumper and bike was freaking amazing, but more then I was ready to spend. Full suspension, full disc, great gears and derailer lighter then anything I have ever ridden. You won't be disapointed when you try it. The model I rode was 2010, they were wanting like $1200, it retailed new for like $1500 I think? That was last year.

I picked mine up for 1600 on Ebay. Thing was in damn near perfect condition. The guy bought the bike then decided he wanted an Epic instead so it just sat in the garage for a year. and That would be a really big upgrade, but believe me, you'll grow into it. I have become a much better rider with a good bike. It makes you more confident.
And an update, I replaced my large chain ring with a fairy bashgaurd. Been on two rides with the 2x9 setup and haven't "needed" the large chain ring yet. It also gave me a substantial amount of ground clearance.

Man that is a steal! This may sound dumb, but how did you have the bike shipped? Was it shipped in parts and you had to assemble it? Good to hear your 2x9 is working out. I've been looking at the GT Zaskar 9r comp and it comes with a 2x10 stock setup. It has pretty amazing components for a $2k bike.

Not dumb, the bike was shipped partially assembled. I had to put the wheels on, seat post in, stem and handle bars on, and of course pedals. but because it was "used" the bike was already put together, he just barely broke it down so it would fit in the bike box.

I gave my bike rack to my sister in law because I bought a tundra, my wife doesn't drive stick so I have to take break down my bike to fit in my Honda whenever I go riding. Lol , it takes about as long as putting the bike rack on and off.

I was doing that for a while too, got to be a pain putting the seats down, taking wheel off etc. I finally got me one of those trunk mount racks. And i love it.

Tuesday I'm taking my stumpjumper in to get serviced and maybe some new goodies

I used to break mine down and stuff it in my teg WITH a massive rear upper strut bar. I could fit 2 bikes in there with that setup! I got an accord to DD and threw a rack on that and it was so much better. So nice to just put the bike on and off and not take the wheel off. I've since sold both and now have a tacoma with a couple of these bad boys. I have to take the wheel off but it's nice knowing they are locked and EXTREMELY hard to steal if I need to make a stop before i can get home to unload my shit.

BTW, i've been eye balling this on ebay...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/190671105552...#ht_500wt_1284

It's too bad the front fork is a pile but otherwise it seems like a nice bike.

Not sure what you're price range is but there was a super nice barcelona red 06 4dr trd off road w/ 48k on it on cl the other day for 18.5. I think it was in Scottsdale. It was mint as fuck too.

I love Toyota trucks, I own a 2010 tundra. So glad I bought it, we go camping and do a lot of outdoor activities. Not bad on gas either for a v8. I have wanted a tacoma for years, my mom owns a 2008 with like 20k miles and I was wanting to buy hers until she started acting like a B about it.

^^^ haha, that's funny. I love mine. The interior on the 4dr is like a car interior, so spacious and the trd package is bad ass. The interior upgrade on the trd's is worth it alone. I love the front seats.
