Brutal, do you use tire inserts? I finally put one in the back and it makes a big difference. Adds protection and lateral support if you run larger volume tires.
Got one on the dh bike but not the trail bike. Im fat so im keeping the bike light lol

We did the Narrowback Mountain loop. All in all around 16 miles with the road being closed for dam construction. Trying to get some more friends out to shuttle Reddish in the next month or so.

Narrowback is a fun loop. Big fan of festival and tilman.

Picked up my Grey Dragon about a month ago and I’m loving it. I’ve been carting bikes around on the tailgate, until my camper shell comes in.

The wife and I hauled a couple of our bikes to Skeggs for a ride and we had a blast up there today! This is the first drive up the hill to Skeggs in the new Ranger. Had to celebrate a great ride and owning such a rad truck with pizza and beers afterwards

I haven’t used the Ranger to haul them around yet but hoping to make that happen next weekend. My new ride is a 2019 Norco Sasquatch 1. I also still ride an old 2006 Norco Six One and my wife has a 2008 Gary Fisher Hifi Deluxe GS. In the bed will by my daughter’s Burley Minnow trailer that I added Solo suspension to and a more comfortable seat pad.

Nice fatty. I built up a fat bike a couple of years ago to use as a winter bike. I quickly realized they’re fun to ride everywhere

Thanks. That was my plan too, I just bought it to use in the winter but I find myself riding it the most! I need to order some lights for it though, it was a dark ride this morning!

I love my tailgate pad, but I’ve got a Leer 180 shell on order. The security of a shell worked out great for me on my last Ranger.

If I remove the front wheel, the extra 4” of height on the Leer 180 should clear the bar and saddle with the dropper down, so I plan to try standing bikes up in the bed while I’m at work.

Right now I’m looking at the Rockymounts bed bar mount setup, but they say that there’s no shutting the tailgate on a 5’ bed. Anyone know if this is the case? Seems like the rear wheel could just be pushed sideways. I was planning to do some fork mounts bolted to plywood, but this Rockymounts thing looks way cleaner.
