They're so cheap on Amazon or EBay, see if you can find one that fits your frame first. I forget how your squishy is set up, does the frame shock mount to the top tube? That was why I had to make one, I couldn't find one to fit that space between the frame shock mount and the steer tube. If you can't either then we'll have a sewing party.

I ordered this one thinking I could mount the long side along the downtube to make it fit. And it did, and I used it like that on the Quarry ride. But it put the zipper along the bottom and my shiz wanted to fall out every time I opened it. It's on Ian's hardtail now and he loves it.

Kevin wrote:Self sealing but lighter weight than a slime tube, run lower PSI without risking a pinch flat.  I'm going to add a ghetto CushCore setup which should strengthen the sidewalls and let me run an even lower PSI.

Turns out to be a LOT lower weight. I just converted my front and weighed it before and after, ~2750 grams to ~2050. That's with only two ounces of sealant, with four ounces like Stan's recommends it'd be just over 2100g?

Weigh your front when you get a chance, Eric. I bet with your Slime tubes you're over 3000g.

I couldn't use the slime tube with the new tires since they're only good for up to 2.2"
Yeah, at 2.3" I'd probably be fine, but now I have an excuse for tubeless.

I have another idea for a bikepacking shakedown trip. We could stash a rig at one of the parking lots at the start of 137 into Murdoch Meadows. Then drive around the top and ride into Murdoch from the Fehr Lake or Mirror Lake trailheads. Camp and fish, then leave on 137. Downhill both ways, and 137 is bumpy enough that we might even have some fun on the way out.

I'd be in for this. Just need to wait until after my competition on June 23rd.

So there's two new flow trails in CC, Zooropa is next to Vertigo and Levitate, and Achtung Baby is just over in Hog Hollow. If we play shuttle games...

Did you see the massive, raging wildfire up this way? Think we'll still be able to ride? laughing

Well that's dumb. How are we supposed to shuttle flow trails if you're not there and Brady doesn't have a truck?

Now we're going to have to do boring XC stuff and it's your fault.

I might have a rig, or might not. Our plan will have to be a little flexible.

Nick and I shuttled last night and he doesn't have a truck? Also shuttling with just two sucks ass, but sucks less ass than climbing in 90 degrees.

And Zooropa is definitely a work in progress still, and for the most part requires bigger balls than I have.

The boy's team ride is at Eagle Mountain this Saturday, so I'll be out there riding something Saturday morning at 9 if anyone wants to join.

And we're planning on hitting the lifts at Sundance on Sunday and poaching some gravity.  $29 all day lift ticket...

Brady is a llama? I'm not sure if that explains a couple things or just creates more questions.
