    I just rode a medium for the review bike. Then got the fellers to send me a small to demo. Bought a small.

    Care to share your measurements (height, inseam, wingspan)?

    I used to be 5'9" but then collapsed discs and some adult onset scoliosis took me down a notch. I'm 5'8" and crooked.

    I don't know any of that other stuff. It's kind of meaningless in my opinion because what gets recommended to me for bike sizes is so often way off for what I end up enjoying riding. In 2001 everyone had me on frames that felt too small and I bought larges. Now everyone wants cadillacs and I buy more smalls.

    Those were the OG frames I'm talking about anyway. If you like moving your bike around I'd definitely size down if you're between sizes on the new ones. If you like stability in a straight line over all else, then go the other way. I like being able to get on my back wheel quickly.

    And, in other news, @kidwoo is writing reviews for Fat-bike.com these days.

    Pedälhead first ride.

    My favorite excerpts:

    "You can then either have your bike shipped to your LBS (which gets a spiff for the deal) or shipped directly to your remote double-wide chateau on Nunya Mesa."

    "GG calls their steel “Smashmoly” and offers little more detail than that, though the ride quality definitely hints at mystical properties and probably involves a ground-up unicorn or two added to the metallurgy. "

    I'm in the GTA, Toronto area. I'd be happy to point to stores and distributors that would be a good fit for your brand. Used to rep/distribute.

    This. But this also reminds of a unique demo opportunity: offer to mail out demo chainstays from various models so current owners can experiment with Smash Doggs and Mega Pistols :D

    The length of rideable season on the monarch crest is way too short. You guys in Colorado need to do something about that.

    Maybe let your cars idle overnight.


    June: too much snow in the way
    July 17th: RIDE
    July 18th-August30: you like lightning bro?
    October: LOL, ur butt's wet and hypothermia

    Wait, so you're telling me there are lots of unattended cars, idling, with no one in them in the greater front range area with no one around at 4am?

    Are they, you know, nice cars?

    Naw - these are *attended* cars idling in the parking lots of EVERY place I visit. Fucking people leave their cars running while they go grocery shopping. I mean, I understand - it's way more comfy to sit in a car with the air conditioning running than to roll down a fucking window.

    That does seem like kind of a 'thing' lately.





    Monarch crest bike fest February here I come!!!



    Maybe carry some potatoes with you. Because that would be fucking hilarious. And no all those idling cop cars all over the place are not excluded.

    That race is always a great time. Prizes certainly aren't the main attraction, though. The season up there is pretty short, I don't think I rode up there once this year without getting wet from hiking through snow, getting rained on, hailed on, snowed on, riding through flowing creeks, etc.

    Ripping down Green's was a trip. It looked like something out of a medeival winter war movie at the top, then greased snot on roots below the snow, and turned into velcro hero dirt at the bottom.

    The idling thing is ridiculous. Turn off your fucking car if you aren't driving, or have some real reason to have it running.

    Not necessary.

    Apparently, if you have a slim jim (or whatever those things are called) and a screw driver, you can get a Subaru for free in Denver. The Denver PD won't even attempt to catch you.

    @ianjenn Sweet build. Cable routing tip:

    The rear derailluer cable runs much cleaner if you route it above the BB shell, between the upper ISCG mount and the chainstay. There's a pic of it in the owner's manual, albeit it isn't explicitly called out.

    Are there any Megatrails in the SF bay? The geo and sizing (I'm 5'11" so I land between sizes for most brands) on your bikes put them at the top of my list for my next bike but the nearest demo shop is 4+ hours of driving from me.

    Help!

    There aren't any BAMF's listed on the website in that area, but I'll check to see if maybe there's another person that would be good to connect with.

    At 5'11", medium is going to be the recommendation unless you have an Ape Index that's more than an inch or two in either direction, or some other atypical proportion. I'm also 5'11" (32" inseam) and ride size medium with a 50mm stem, 12mm of saddle set back on the post. I have tried size large multiple times, but they are too big.
