Protect Your Trails Plus a Teaser

by Clint

Last night Igor, Scott, and I headed over to Bacon Ridge after work for a quick ride.  Every time I go out there, I'm impressed by how well maintained the trails are.  Eroded sections are patched with sand and rock for drainage, branches are neatly clipped, and trash is nowhere to be found.

Logs on blogs.
The local trail crew is looking to expand the trails at Bacon Ridge this fall.  I've been talking to some of the folks involved with making this happen.  The land is owned by the county, but it's up to a land trust to approve trail expansion.  They make sure the natural environment is protected and regulations are obeyed.


Ultimately, the expansion of the trail system is dependent on the condition of current trails and how they affect the land.  It's a good reminder that we affect the land as riders.  When you enjoy this sort of activity, it's easy to care about the environment.  Do so and we can gain more access and eventually create more trails!
Since you sat through my micro rant.  Here's a teaser for a new stem.  It's being tested now.

31.8?

Is that a removable faceplate Quill stem? Cause that would be just...the best of both worlds

removable faceplate= heaven sent

Yep, 31.8.

Removable faceplate, quill stem? Yes! Long overdue. Well, actually, my wife's 1986 Diamondback has a clunky, but effective version. Nothing new under the sun.

Stoked on all of these new stems! Looks like the Campeur might be getting a cock-pit upgrade in the next year or so...
