Pretty sure I wasn’t being referred to in the “familiar faces we haven’t seen in a bit” statement, but it was really nice to see a bunch of familiar faces I have not seen in a bit last night. A great ride (couldn’t make 6 pm start) and fun to be back around the Rocket. Looking forward to the Bike article, assuming it happens…

Where is the “Tiny Trail”? I ask because we are staying at a cottage in Tiny, Ontario, and will have the kidlets with us, so a paved/easy trail would be awesome if close by.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions – hopefully we can check out a couple of the options listed.

Looks like we are heading up to this area (Tiny, Ontario) for a week at a cottage. Trailforks is not showing much in the close vicinity, with the nearest mountain bike riding I can see at either Copeland forest or 3stage/Kolapore. I searched the trail listing on this site and also did not see anything closer. Am I missing something?
Thanks for…[Read more]
Not sure what rims your brother is running, but I ran Schwalbe Rocket Rons (likely even thinner sidewalls than the NN’s) and Stan’s stupid light alloy rims with piano strings for spokes for years in a ghetto tubeless setup with no issues. But I’m also a relatively light rider with a relatively light riding style. A 220-pound masher with an…[Read more]
Interesting and good to know. This year we camped for a week at Port Burwell a little further down the shore on Lake Erie, but the addition of riding and golfing (?!) makes this option pretty attractive for next year….
Sounds like you are headed in the right direction – the keys are that (a) the tire is holding air, and (b) the bead is solidly locked. You should over-inflate the tire a bit (40-50 psi) to ensure a proper bead seat/seal (and also helps to tell if it is holding air) and leave it there for a bit before reducing PSI to your riding level.

Hey @MikeC, long time.
I (and several others I ride with) have had good luck with the brand RioRand on Amazon. As much as I dislike supporting cheap import stuff over established bike brands (Niterider, L&M, etc), the fact they are available for 10% of the price makes it hard to say no. For $60, I have 2800 lumens (note, pretty sure that is not…[Read more]
Sky Pilot is being ridden again? Back in the day, that used to be a mostly doable climb (part of the infamous $60 two-pack heading north – Spanish Fly still owes me that money!!!), and then it became so rooty and sandy that it was virtually unpassable in either direction!
Looks like its time to connect with a Tuesday ride again to see what…[Read more]
aragon replied to the topic Yakima (Whispbar) and Thule keys – one key to rule them all? in the forum TECH TALK 2 years, 5 months ago
Here’s one person’s take (from another online forum – I am sure it sounds simpler than it is to actually do):
I am sure like many others I have a single key for my Yakima accessories and now I have another key for my Thule keyed Touareg bars. I should mention that I just purchased a Thule North Cape Roof box. I wanted a single key solution and…[Read more]

So I have a Thule hitch rack (T2), Whispbar rails (Railbar) and Whispbar roofbox (WB701). I love them all, but it also means I now have three different keys for attaching/opening/removing them. Is there any way to get new keys/lock cores and one (1) key to operate all of them? Am I screwed because I went across brands? I could just call a…[Read more]
Quick heads up (literally) required for a fallen tree on the upper line of the downhill section of Foreplay before the switchback and climb to the last part of the trail. It is a large tree and during the day it might be obvious, but it made for quite the adventure (read quick tuck and roll) during our night ride last night. Much too large for…[Read more]
