    Looking for BEST manual hand pump for Fat Tires

    I've been using my Lezyne Floor Drive for around 12 years now. I've never had any issues and it still works like new. Make sure to get the high volume version of whatever you decide on.

    Outfitting the shorter rider...

    Most brands now have women's specific design bikes. Specialized, Trek, and Giant all make some great women's road rides that come in smaller sizes. The best bet would be to head to a bike shop while she is home and see what she has and what they like. If she is going to do the Tri scene then...

    Moab tires

    My trail bike is running Kenda Excavators front and rear and I like the way they hook up. Race setup, more center knobs and still good cornering which might be better for riding on rocks is a Maxxis Ardent up front with a Maxxis Crossmark out back. Really nice setup.

    Sweet, thank you for the information and all the hard work. I really do appreciate it and I really am quite excited about this jersey. Fingers crossed that we can make it happen. Sticking with the large.

    IH8MUD racing

    Racing a 24 in a few months, might be in for another jersey soon, but I am inclined to see sizing and such.

    IH8MUD racing

    Hmm, if it did I am pretty sure I would not get it. I failed Beer Shotgunning in college :doh:. Thanks, for the luck though, I need it both to get the upgrade, and in finding the single speed I want to build.

    Presta vs schrader valves

    I just like the fact that the presta valve does not get contaminated and you do not need the valve cap like with a schrader. I have had a few schraders stop working because goop got stuck in the interior of the valve and I had to swap the entire tube out and use a tree branch to clean it out.

    26 or 29er?

    Depends, the 29er is great if you are a tall rider, say over 5'10 or 5'11. Honestly I would start with a 26" hardtail and then move on from there. You will always love your first bike, but it is a lot like cruisers, your dream will evolve into bigger and badder as you decide what branch of...

    Whoah! Seriously comfy bike seat! What's your best choice?

    I have a wtb Devo on my fully and an older specialized body geometry on my dirt jumper. I like both but the speci wins when it comes to comfort. The devo just makes you more maneuverable and takes the edge off.

    Full susp or hardtail?

    For 500 dollars you are not going to get a full suspension that works well with lockout on forks and the rear shock. My trance was 2k, I have hydro brakes nice rims and great pedaling, but no lock out. It really isn't needed these days since the suspension designs minimize bob. But it will be...

    Road Bikes. Suggestions?

    475 is roughly half of what it cost new. So it depends on whether it has had some part upgrades and what kind of shape it is in. Also is it your correct size? That is going to be a huge factor in whether or not a road bike feels right.

    Back at it again

    Transition Covert or the Transition Preston, both bikes make me drool and wish I had more cash monies. They nearly got me to sell my cruiser to afford one... Nearly...

    Dirt Jumper

    Well, it depends on what you plan to do with it. If you're actually going to jump it and use it for urban then most DJ bikes will fit you. They are normally 16.5 or mediums. Now, if you want it for more of a trail bike that you can ride trails and DJ then you need something you can slam a long...

    Thoughts on new MTB tires?

    A kenda small block 8 rear and a kenda nevegal front end makes for a great commuting and offroad setup. I run them on my bike when I am doing long races and such but still need some good traction up front for trails.
