    Where is the mini dozer? The people demand properly sized bike lanes.

    This is news to me, but it explains why the kids have been complaining about the trails lately... They use words like rough and bumpy, like thats a bad thing?!

    That fancy thingamijiger is called the Trail Boss. A guy in Bellingham named Bill makes them. They come in different configurations and there's a pile of heads you can swap out. It breaks down and fits well in my Camelbak Blowfish.

    @boostindoubles Is the trail boss sturdy feeling or kind of flexy ? Been drooling over them for a while.

    It is sturdy when all the clamps are tight. If you are swinging it for a while, some of the knuckles loosen and you have to re-tighten them. When getting it out, It takes a minute or two to setup and breakdown. It's not going to replace a regular mcleod, but for what it is, its gold. It fits in my pack and I forget about it while riding. Its for those quick fixes in remote places that would be long walks and short digs. It's also is great when I need my bike to test shit out while digging.

    Good to know. I'm all about some mobile trail gnome activities.

    You use your brakes, but the money is in proper radiuses.
