Submitted by zach malinowitz a Cross Country Rider from windham

Date Reviewed: June 2, 2005

Strengths:    stopping power is definitely there-and theyre just sweet lookin

Weaknesses:    not so good on the quality and holding up against wear.ive only ridden about 10 times and theyre already showing through. not a good sign

Bottom Line:   
these are definitely not the kind of pads you would use if you are a downhill rider, which obviously you would be using disc brakes anyways. considering they wore out quicker than the kool stops, i would reccomend something better.

Does this seem like sound advice? I managed to demonstrate it, even rolling backwards a bit o ... Read More »

New switchback trail bypass

There is now a nice new switchback trail near the top of Rusty (3) Barrels. This allows for a nice in-the-saddle climb to the top. Or you can still stand-up and do the fireroad climb to the top too. Pops to the "engineers" on the design and layout.:thumbsup: BikingScottRead More »
