a possibility ...good shop for sureSabertooth37 said:How about a good shop for a rental?
You need something better than a Maverick or an Ibis? Listen to Lidarman. He has told you what you need to know.Sabertooth37 said:Anybody else like to recommend a good shop for a quality rental bike???
Good advice, thanks.Ansible said:Nederland is just 25 minutes from Boulder, so in the context of a day of riding, driving up there is not that big a deal. There's more to do and see in Boulder if you're going to want to wander around downtown and get food and etc. However, being in Ned means you're right there at the Ned trails, and closer to the SSV/little raven/sourdough trails as well.
The trails in Nederland are extensive but confusing - its one of those casual trail networks where you get dumped out on a road and then you have to hunt around for where it starts again, and there are multiple branches, some of which lead back to where you just were before, etc. If you're ok with that then you can do rides of over 30 miles and probably over 40 without too much repeating. There are some really cool sections back in there too. Hit up this board when it gets closer to october and set up a ride with some locals!
I was in Salida a few years ago and then Leadville. It took me about a day to adjust to the altitude. I can suffer with the best of them! What is the elevation in Nederland?nOOby said:not sure if altitude will be an issue but ned is 2000' higher than boulder.
Thanks for the information. I am a Trek guy, I own a Madone with Sram Red and a Fuel with Sram XX. I am waiting on a 2011 Trek Superfly 100 to replace the fuel. I will check the Trek store out.EmTee said:University Bikes doesn't really rent any bikes you'd want anymore...
If you're like me, and you are with satan, then the Trek Store should do just fine. They have some decent prices on full squishy rentals.
If you can't stand Trek, then I know of nothing beyond what's already been said above.
It's a bit farther, but you can hit White Ranch as well. Up by Nederlund there's the West Magnolia trails and Sourdough.
If you're looking for something particularly challenging there's Lion Gulch up in Larimer county, but pack some powerful repellant. The things listed at the beginning of the thread are closest by far, though, to town.
