The great suggestions go on and on. There really is no end to it. In the spirit of piling on to the OP, I'll mention Great Basin NP. We "stumbled" on to it a couple of years ago when we were...

I like the advice and list Bassmanbob made. But don't forget Dead Horse Canyon State Park in the Moab area, right near Canyonlands. Moab is flat out a mecca for mountain biking from nice mellow, easy...

There's no wrong choice with either of those fine bikes. However, I would have the bike that felt best to me, no doubt at all. That's what makes me happy when I ride. The group, the braking system...

If you end up looking for a new 1" threadless carbon fiber fork, be sure to look at the Columbus Minimal. Very nice fork, carbon legs and steerer, light, reputable company, modest graphics. Mine is...

In my opinion, two bolt (MTB or touring) shoes are fine for anyone but the most demanding rider and the walkability is a good thing. A good quality MTB shoe has a very rigid sole, comparable to a...

Buy shoes that you can actually try on. Fit, even in the same size, will vary from brand to brand and even models within a brand. I buy 99 % of my stuff online, but not shoes (unless I'm replacing...

Yes - this is exactly what I ended up having to do to spread my mid-80s steel frame. And you really have to over extend the frame to make it bend a little. Takes a little time and cautious...

The resistance isn't the cost, but the very idea of throwing away something that's perfectly good for no reason. Throw away culture + helmet companies' bottom lines = "it makes just sense to get a...

I love my triple and always have!

I've only fallen twice on road bikes since I was in my 20s (I'm mid-60s now). Both times were in the past few year and both were turning too sharp on gravel patches at intersections. Once, very slow...

You could say that about all sorts of stuff that is thrown out "just because it seems to make sense" or worse yet, disposable crap that doesn't need to be disposable.
