Tube, and the recall is in tact from some older models from a couple years ago. I'm not sure if I have have new or older setup, it came with a wheel / front tire from a setup I bought. I can't remember who let me know about the recall but it's the only reason I reached out to them just to see if it met the recall. Current models are fine and Bill is also on them and loves them. Crucial is using some level of sealant of course. We use Stan's which is a MTB product...

Thanks for the heads up. Just to confirm your report I did a quick 80 mile loop from PC, up to the radio tower north of Heber, then out to the Cascade Springs area and back. Pretty sure I passed you as you were riding home - I was on the XR650R.

So glad the trails are drying out!

And a run to East Canyon. Hmmm, look at this...



With a need to be back at the salt mine on Monday so he packed it up on Sunday & headed west...





Many roads & trails in Nevada & California to be explored.

Woot woot!!

Nice move, congratulations, Jess!

On the North side heading down into Heber... yep that was me. I did discover yesterday that the gate is still down just past Cascade Springs and if you make it 80% of the way to Snake Creek Road you will get stuck in two feet of slush.

Thanks.
BTW, how much does a new tube (bladder) cost?

Sunday ride!

I've got a significant variation on my classic Walsburg run lined up for Sunaday if anyone still rides... Plates required. Moderate riding, mostly fire roads.

Where are you meeting and what time? Depending on how painting the kids place goes, maybe.

It's perfect for your DR...

I run bcc over gaurdsmans to walsburg then west side of strawberry ridge to diamond fork then up to the strawberry marina and back across strawberry ridge. The alternate route i'm looking at would go down hobble creek then up to squaw peak on the front side of the provo range. that dumps into provo cyn, so then maybe back via wasatch state park to bcc... maybe hit snow.

Mmmmn. I love the Walsburg run. Has the snow melted up high?

Any single track this time around?

When and where is the meetup?
