    Nathan, that Integral Dagger is just beautiful in every way. As a machinist and tool and die maker with over 20 yeas experience I have nothing but full admiration and respect for the time, labor and passion involved in producing such a stunning piece of work. Amazing !!

    2020- What's your goal?

    The ball has started rolling, except the small motor home ended up being a 42' bus. I spent the day setting up my truck to be our Toad for when we begin our Canadian tour next year.

    My 63 year old riding buddy is all set to ride the Baja Divide on his Trek 1120. He starts January 1st and hopes to do about 1200 of the 1600 miles, I think he is going for 6 weeks. Bike adventures are the best !!

    Bicycles!

    With tax I paid $395 Canadian and I still feel it was worth it, even if I never rented it out at all. I see lots of guys with helmets or jackets or sausage suits that cost almost that much, lets face it nothing in the bike hobby is cheap !!! We own a tire and mechanical shop and I can put rubber...

    Check your local bike shops, some may actually be renting it out. I found a few here that were renting it for $100 a week. I rented it out for $75 for a week, or more if needed, with a "lifetime" membership if you want or need to use it again. Sounds like you are running your suspension about...

    So I bought myself a cool little gizmo called a Quarq Shockwiz, to aid in my suspension set up. I bought an amazing full suspension mountain bike last year but really had no idea of how to properly set up the suspension. I followed the basics and set my suspension to the manufacturers...

    Went on my first bikepacking trip as well as my longest road ride ever. It was only an over night trip and about 75 km each way but it was a record for me as I have only recently got into gravel grinding. I packed my Carothers EDC as well as my HDFK and both were used and performed flawlessly...

    Nice bike! I bought an Intense Spider at the end of last season. I've never had or ridden a full suspension bike before so dialing in the suspension has taken some time,but the closer I get the better the bike gets. Enjoy your new whip !

    I have wrestled with a few cougars in the past and I found the hardest part was getting away in the morning without waking them up.

    Here's a picture of the fleet .I've been riding the gravel grinder a lot lately because the trails are too soft to ride, but the weather keeps changing here and its winter again so I took the fatbike out for a 30 km rip on the trails today.
