Rules and Guidlines  - 
 
Community Rules:

This community is for mountain bikers. To ensure that this community continues to thrive and be an enjoyable and welcoming place for all of us please follow these rules and posting guidelines:

1. No Spam Links. Links to your website that offer no, or very little opportunity for discussion within the community will be considered spam, and will be removed accordingly. Links, images, videos, etc. posted with no additional commentary or opinion by the poster will be considered “link-litter” and will be removed accordingly. If you think a story or news item is worthy of posting to the community, please take a moment to tell us why.

2. No Self Promotion Spam. Please remember that this community is for discussion of all things mountain biking, and not for sales or promotion of personal projects. If you are a creator, please use the “Introduce Yourself” category to tell us a little about yourself and your projects, but please refrain from blatant self promotion.

We do want to know what you’re up to, and we do want to be able to discover new and exciting projects, but please be considerate of other members. We do not want this community to become plug after plug after plug.

It is acceptable to cite your own work if it’s relevant to the current discussion or topic. However, “Hey look at my blog or product” posts will be considered spam and removed accordingly. The best place for self promotion is on your personal stream. If you’re unsure whether or not your post is spam, ask yourself this question- Does this post encourage discussion within the community? If not, it’s spam.

3. No Strava/EndoMondo etc spam. Do not just post a link or screenshot of your ride...that tells us nothing and is just spammy. If you want to show off your ride, that's great but please tell us about the ride, post up a few pictures and share with the community. If you post up a plain link with no further info the post will be removed with no warning.

4. Don’t Be A Jerk. We don’t like bullies. Please be respectful of others. Healthy debate is great, and even encouraged, but name-calling, insults, and threats of any kind will not be tolerated. Offenders will be banned.

Keep language PG-13. Some people don’t want to be bombarded with expletives.

Don’t post any overtly sexual or NSFW images.

5. Use Correct Categories.

If you don’t know what category to use, please contact a moderator. If you have a suggestion for a new category, please contact a moderator.

6. The community language is English. We have no issues with other cultures or languages but we want to be able to talk about and share our experiences with everyone and that means we have to all speak the same language. Non English posts will be removed.

7. Have Fun. This community is designed for all of mountain bikers to come and talk about the sport we love with one another. Let’s all just be cool and have fun. DFTBA

What's your favorite snack/energy food to take on a trail ride with you?

I'm fond of these Honey Stinger wafers I found. They taste awesome and are light on the stomach

Victoria's Secret outside Rapid City. You won't find any supermodels in lingerie here. But a great trip with tight switchback, steep climbs, chunky rock sections and fast descents. If you go, you might want to hang out with a local. It's easy to get lost, like I did. But the bottom line is, riding in South Dakota is great.

I'm doing the Dakota Five-O on Labor Day weekend.  Starts in the park in Spearfish, up to Tinton Road, then Tinton Trail, and all around up there.  I'm hoping to finish with my dignity intact.  If I'm ahead of anyone when I finish, it'll be a bonus!

Change of destination. Today we want to get to 1900 meters , but the path is not viable. So we have explored new trails in the woods below. Fantastic landscape. 👍 ☺
 
Cambio di meta. Oggi si dovevano raggiungere i 1900 m. ,ma il sentiero non era percorribile. Quindi abbiamo esplorato nuovi trails nei boschi più in basso. Paesaggio fantastico. 👍 ☺

Okay sorry for bad video but after my last ride I seem to have broken my hub...

My LBS told me the pawls are shot, and therefore I a need new body on the hub, sadly it's not possible to change body on the sram 306 hub that's on the bike, and therefore a need a new hub and wheel rebuilt or I need a need new complete wheel or wheel set...

Now the bike is under one year old shouldn't this be covered by waranty, since the body can't be replaced separately?...
I wouldn't mind if it wasn't covered if the body could be changed since that's not the biggest investment but a hub an whell rebuilt or new wheels could easily become quite an investment, so hope it's covered...

Do any of you had experience with similar issues and warranty?

To my mountain biking friends,
This would be my last post in Google+. It was nice and inspiring to see different people and their bikes from around the world. I have migrated and will only be posting in Facebook. Hope to see all of you there!

Way too extreme for my style of riding, but it's very exciting to watch. Cool vid, thanks for posting 👍

My full suspension friends, my buddy just bought a 2014 Trek Remedy 7 29" and there is no where for a bottle cage. Aside from a hydration pack, does anyone have any tricks or products they recommend?

Never underestimate the power of a few nylon tie wraps.
