interesting question. I had a similar thought last year. I had/have a trek remedy (frame cracked and was replaced with a fuel ex) and wanted something a bit more playful. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that the remedy (140mm front and back, now a fuel ex, 140mm front, 130mm rear) is still the perfect Ontario bike but I began dreaming of a…[Read more]
It was a beautiful morning to be in the Don. Did a big loop including Catalyst, Rim job, PA, Hidden trail, Rehab, Roller flowster, 4/5 play, Climbmax and Ejactulator. As most know all trails are firing when it’s frozen. Still not so sure about the afternoon. Its a tricky time of the year where 90% of the trails would be good in the warmer weather…[Read more]
Rode today from the Nesbitt entrance around to the ridge to boo trail to beaver flats. Everything was nice and frozen. Just as Blurred lines said – boo trail was rutted up from selfish, impatient people. Not too bad but not a feel good seeing and feeling the ruts. Depending on the sun I think 9:30am or earlier would be the cut off. It really is…[Read more]
Thanks @blurredlines. I screwed the ‘end adjust’ screw all the way in to see if it would help and it didn’t. If you click the link on the original post you can see the photo. It has a new chain. I’m thinking that the hanger is bent in that little bit, just enough for it to rub. I’m gunna order a goat link and i think that will straighten it out…[Read more]
Hoping this picture works. I’m converting my 2x Trek Farley 5 to 1x. The rear derailleur is
Shimano Deore, Shadow Plus and I installed a sunrace 11-42 cassette. I’ve done this to a few bikes but have opted for a wolftooth goat link each time. I know a long…[Read more]
I have a trek remedy (140mm front/back, 29er) that is wicked for longer rides and when it gets a bit more gnarley. With bontrager SE4’s doesn’t really feel like it’s too under gunned for blue (I do get some arm pump at blue but I feel that is more me being soft rather than the bike) or more downhill oriented trails. Recently I picked up last…[Read more]
I have a 2015 trek farley 5 that is stock but with tubeless tires. Gets the job done in the winter. Will hopefully break it out tomorrow night in Copeland forest. Want to buy studs for the tires but it’s not very high on the priority list.
What dropper did you buy for it? I have a 1st and 2nd gen reverb post that doesn’t work below 2 degrees or…[Read more]
Rode today from pottery road to cricket tree to the flats and back and it was just good enough. Little sheen on the dirt but it wasn’t slick.
On my way into work (around leslie and eglinton) there was some decent rain.
Just as Rob mentioned, Most trails were just good enough before the rain came. Depending on what other rain is coming I assume it’s too wet/slick now.
And yep, huge tree is down when exiting the dirt jumps just before bell ringer. It’s gunna need a serious clean up with a chain saw or two. Sorry!! @yella-one

Sure some of you folks already have seen this but I am stoked!
Nice to have Blue pushing bike races again. Biking is going to eclipse skiing soon if they play their cards right!
I’m sure I will see some of you there!
Rode into work today (started at 1020am), most of the trails are nice and hard, but pottery road to one tree island has alot of soft spots. I’m surprised its so soft, I think the sun and lack of windchill are the culprits. My bike was pretty gunked up. Should be good once the sun goes down. I think it will be soft tomorrow and wednesday unless you…[Read more]
