Southwestway Park / WOW NICE
« on: October 01, 2013, 11:59:25 PM »
I visited SWW this evening for the first time in weeks to find the south trail heads are groomed and there is a new trail coming down from Mann Hill to the parking lot. I wanted to say Thanks to Alex and crew and it is really looking good. It was also nice seeing the regulars out there. I have been down with a cold, injuries, and a new job that is wearing me out.

Anyone abe to point me to a current trail map?  Thanks.  David Krahulik


While this is the wrong thread for this, there is a new loop that is a hare over 1 mile. They got this in a little while back but it is a nice addition to the loop.

Can we get the Forum link at the top header of the main page? You might put the IMBA and a donation link there too. When directing people to this sight they have to search down into a paragraph to find the forum link.


Is the forum capable of a phone app? I had a forum for quads and it was. We could update trail conditions a lot easier.


If you need help with the site or money to upgrade it I am here and I imagine others would be willing to chip in also.


Thanks for all your hard work!

Rants and Raves / Kuat 2 Bike NV Rack (RAVE)
« on: June 17, 2013, 02:31:50 AM »
After purchasing my Stump Jumper Full Suspension I started searching for a rack of quality since I did not want to see my baby go bouncing down the road behind me. The Stump Jumpers frame being twisted to the point of not easily using a frame rack I had my sight set on the a tire mount style. I saw a few and read several reviews. While the Kuat was the most expensive I saw some things it had others did not that helped me take the plunge. For instance, it comes with a hitch pin lock which uses the same key as the retractable locking cable to lock the bikes to the carrier. I do not have a work stand and this rack has one built into it. I opted for the 2 inch receiver unit so I can eventually upgrade it to carry 4 bikes. While some Amazon reviews say the anti rattle mechanism never works, I have have to disagree. Many time I have forgot to loosen it while trying to remove the carrier and it is TIGHTLY held in the hitch with just this mechanism. I did unscrew it too far once and had issues getting the mechanism to tighten. I easily fixed the problem by threading the rod into the block. The design of the lock is so nice I want to make an extension that uses the same pieces. My jeeps spare tire requires me to use the extension.


Durability. I have used this for at least six months and left it on in the weather. The frame is mostly aluminum. I drove to Florida and back with it and the stumpy behind the jeep. Besides a few road rash chips it help up great.

I figured I would say something since I had a hard time making up my mind and I am pretty happy with the purchase.
