They opened the roads back up I think two days ago. Last report I read on the DNR site said 90% contained and roads open. So that prompted me riding and I stayed far away from the area. Saw no smoke anywhere.

Up in Whistler ripping some trails. Bike park isn't open yet but that's ok. It's just nice to be here relaxing and taking in the 80* weather.

Threw dirt today for about 7-8 hours at the Tieton Bike Park.
It's finally coming together. Have a few sets of DJs that can be ridden. The full set set be done within 2-3 weeks.
After that a flow section will be worked on .

Ran from the rain this weekend and rode ratpac for the first time. Fun trail that needs some tlc. Definitely spoiled with west side tackiness, that sand was loose.

Did the exact opposite and rode capital forest. I was trying to start dialing in my new dhx rc4 and it proved to be impossible. The trail was an absolute swamp

bought a Transition Trail or Park yesterday. Unfortunately I don't get to really ride it for awhile. The back wheel is toast so I need to get it rebuilt. I've not done any DJ so this ought to be interesting.

^ sweet. I want to go there badly.

Had an awesome muddy ride yesterday on some of the Wanoga complex Super D trails yesterday west of Bend. The jump line section of Tiddly Winks is evolving nicely and I rode Tylers Traverse for the first time and it's really cool. Some nice berms, jumps and rock drops. Installed and tested out my new seat and stem on the ride. Shaved a 1/2lb with those two items (new full carbon seat weighs 144g!) Have brand new XTR cranks going on this week too, and going tubeless. Hope to be close to shaving 3lbs by the time everything is installed.

^ Yep, it's pretty awesome. Amazing what you can do on the slickrock with all that traction.

I have mixed feelings about tubeless. I've ridden both and all my current rigs have tubes. I'm pretty much the only one amongst my friends that runs tubes (and flats). Ran tubeless in Moab. Did the 9,000' decline, "the whole enchilada" and killed the rear tire. Stretched the casing on a Continental Trail King. Had to swap it to the front for clearance so I could make it down. I've seen that happen to that tire soooooo many times this year. If you run tubeless, stay away from that tire. It's death.

I'm beat to hell. We road daily. That last ride was only a 10-12 loop at slick rock. But it was one if the tougher rides for me with the constant climbing and I was already beaten down... I even bottomed out there on a 2013 Ibis Mojo SLR (rental). That **** wigged me out man. You don't want to go down at slick rock.

Definitely do research on tires before going tubeless. I just switched using Stans a couple weeks ago on both my hard tail and full suspension and my experiences are mixed.

Nothing but problems getting the tires to seal on my hard tail with an XT wheelset running some used Kenda Small Blocks. Only way I could get them to seal was to put on the saftey glasses and inflate to 60 psi then bounce the tires. I did a 65 mile road ride at 40 psi and they held but leaked like crazy at anything <30 psi. So much for the benefits of running low pressure...

The full suspension was a breeze mounting nearly new Ground Controls on a Roval wheelset and they even sealed without sealant during testing. I made a bold move and did a first ride on them in the Sisters Stampede on Sunday with absolutely no problems.

you did a 65 mile road ride with your mountain bike? Wow....props for that

I went tubeless a few months ago, running Kenda tomacs I think and was pleased at how easy they were to get setup. I did it with a floor pump and did not need a compressor or any blast of air to seat the beads. Few rides into them now with no leaks or issues on trail. knock on wood.....

I'm a bit crazy and registered for 4 centuries this summer. The 65 mile road ride was just another Portland Ronde while the trails were wet. Not bad on a 22lb hard tail with the Kenda Small Blocks--I'd rather ride it than any road bike.

Same here with using a floor pump. It took a while with the Kendas but the trick was to squeeze the tire near the stem and pump really really fast.

I've done my research on tubeless and I'm ready to doo eet. I have Stan's wheels and tubeless ready tires (Schwalbe Hans front, WTB Weirwolf rear). Just need valve stems. My coworker who races mountain, road and cyclocross said he recently replaced a tubeless tire he ran until it was worn out. He counted 7-8 punctures that the Stan's sealed up. That's 7 or 8 times he would have had to stop to change tubes or patch. When you throw in the weight savings and ability to run lower pressure without worrying about pinch flats, i'm sold.

In other news, the XTR cranks I just got weigh 1.4# less than the Truvativ Hussefelt cranks that came off. Close to 2# shaved with the stem, seat and cranks. W00t! I'm a weight weenie now.

Nice upgrades! I recently swapped the dropper seatpost and aluminum bars on my Camber Pro for carbon. Along with going tubeless I maybe, just maybe, saved a pound. Biggest upgrade I did this year was getting rid of about 10 pounds on my frame.

...but at the expense of less beer.
