Wapehani / Re: Wapahani dam removal is complete...what now??
« on: December 05, 2018, 08:06:53 AM »
I helped out with some trail re-routes, connector's, and general maintenance with the guy who used to take care of the park. Any idea who is in charge now? Happy to pitch in like before. Nice to have a place to ride trail in town.

I'll be at the parking lot by the horse barn and bathrooms around 9 am. Driving a black Tacoma. If I don't see you I'll leave the stuff in the back.

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, that is the Minion I have. I'll be out at BCSP Sunday if you want to meet up and pick up the tire and those brakes.

I'll be at BCSP tomorrow morning around 8 at the HP parking lot. Could bring it all then. Ride will probably finish around 12, I'll be in the parking lot then as well.

Brown County State Park / Found some tools on HP tonight

Looked like someone had a seat bag failure on HP. Found a bunch of tools scattered down the trail. Shoot me a message if you lost some.

Wider bars help going down/thru rowdy stuff at speed. Stabilizes the front end more and provides some additional leverage. Also helps a bit on jump and grunt climbs while SSing. On flow trail and most IN singletrack probably not going to notice much benefit.

Had to cut my ride short. Left it a couple hours late. North Tower is trending red right now. I wouldn't recommend an afternoon ride...

I'm torn on this issue. On the one hand, I understand our instinct to protect our trails from motorized vehicles. On the other hand, I'm not sure if the described bicycle meets that definition. Does it supply enough power to dig into the dirt like a motorcycle or is it just enabling someone to ride who might otherwise not be able to by supplying an assist at the pedals?

After having a similar problem myself, I carry around tools to aid in opening the quick links. They aren't single use, you just can't remove them by hand. PITA for sure.

Made me laugh :)

Agree - wider is better. Only reason to run narrow tires is to save a bit of weight. Go with the 2.3!
