I don't know what trails you are located near but this Wednesday there is a work session at Fort Harrison.https://www.facebook.com/events/606751669848810/

As much as I disagree with this behavior, I prefer it to the folks that run/ride with earbuds in.  At least with the speaker, you can ask them to turn it down and they can hear you coming.

Do you still have either of these?  I'm looking for my Karate Monkey.

Is there still talk of a work session tomorrow?  I'm busy in the morning but could be available in the afternoon to lend a hand.

How does the registration vs volunteering work?  Like if I register to volunteer, is there a code or whatnot that discounts registration?

If it doesn't work for you, I'll take it.  The rear wheel on my singlespeed the axle is jacked up and won't stay tight.

Would it be worthwhile to bring bikes to ride to the farther out sections?

Just get a big fat dummy from Surly.  Then you can carry the kitchen sink, a portable shower, a keg with taps and co2 and room for a rider.

Nice job BTW.

For steel frames, I've just always used nailpolish.  Clear usually.  Just to keep the rust from having a place to start.

What about something like this:  https://paulcomp.com/shop/components/duplex-lever/

Allows you to actuate both brakes with just one hand.

I have had a cane creek 40 on my pugsley for 7 years now.  No issues at all.  Not as flashy as King (I have that on my 29er) but very reliable.

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?

And that's the problem.  A very good friend of mine is suffering from a condition that is causing loss of strength in his legs.  It is never going to get better for him and so, he purchased an electric fatbike to allow him to ride longer with friends while he still can.  He is one of the biggest trails advocates I know and would never ride in less than optimal conditions.  He knows that his e-bike isn't welcome in the majority of places so he took his backyard and built his own singletrack on it.  He is definitely one side of this problem.  The other is the stereotypical stravasshole (I like that term) that buys an electric assist bike, turns it all the way up (or mods it) and attempts to KOM every trail in the area, damning the consequences.  You want to do that stuff, go find an ORV park.

I would like to think that people would use common sense but in today's age I think that is a lost cause.  So to keep the trails open, accessible and not requiring repair all the time from misuse, I think (my personal opinion) is saying no to electric bikes of any kind on the trails.
