    There's probably masters riders out there doping, just like there are most certainly P12 guys, domestic and world tour pros doping.

    I don't know about the pros, but I know from personal experience you can ride masters at the top state and national podium level being completely clean, enjoying a normal life, training maybe 10-15 hours per week, without a coach or even a super dedicated training plan. So if guys want to risk their health, their reputation and their personal life by taking drugs, I may bitch about them when they get caught, but I'm not going to get baiting into letting it dominate the discussion about a sport I happen to like a lot.

    But hey I know it's really hard to find positive stories about riding bikes in Colorado.

    Recently saw a pic on FB of one of our vaunted 55+ racers bragging that if he hadn't flatted w/ a 1/4 mile to go, he would've finished top 10 at El Tour de Tucson. Don't think we can chalk that up to natural talent or training with power.

    you say they are selling a lot of them but you have no idea, it's a private company. so just a guess.

    you sheep will buy anything and i guarantee will get crushed by a guy on a sear's huffy bike for $40. Power meters do nothing for you.........jokers who think they can be like lance and then quit and then say lance only did drugs and blah blah blah....99% of all cyclists have zero talent and a power meter won't help them.

    too expensive for YOU, perhaps. Whether something is too expensive for the general market can be determined by sales, and from all accounts, they're selling the hell out of 'em.

    All i hear is "cheaper, cheap, cheap" and at 700 they can have it. Then the sky stuff bragging, whatever. HR is fine, you don't need this 700 dollar thing to become pro. once you become pro, it's free. SRM is a different story, however, since that thing is good. Left only....lol....simple for making more money

    In the past, an immature aggressive minority created a great deal of ill will towards all mountain bikers by down hilling multi use trails, ignoring trail closures, poaching at night with massive LEDs, etc. This minority has included well known self entitled professionals who definitely knew better.

    Cross country skiing is now over a 100 year old well established sport. Its users carefully create parallel tracks that subsequent users follow. In the Indian Peaks, literally hundreds to thousands carefully use these trails every week.

    Cross country skiers are at the core of most Wilderness Advocacy groups including the Sierra Club and the Audubon Society. They donate tremendous amounts of hours and dollars. They sit on many boards and have a great deal of input about trails and wilderness.

    So the last thing that a tiny minority of fat bikers should do is to literally ride rough shod over these delicate established cross country ski snow trails. Take a few minutes to find hundreds of miles of trails that cross country skiers do not use. Hint: avoid established cross country trails listed in many publications and online.

    Please do not generate another huge backlash against mountain bikers.

    Question, Skiers AND snow bikers don't HAVE to stay on the trail mostly because if they are on snow are they really damaging anything? Why don't the snow bikes just ride parallel or where ever they choose? One problem I could imagine might be tree branches. How many tree huggers might cry if branches are broken to protect the cross country ski trails?

    and to think you used moronic, just some things you don't do, don't boot pack over someone who has laid down a skin track up a climb to ski, you don't trail run over nordic trails, sure as hell don't fat bike over a known nordic route, you don't hide behind rudeness under the cover of "be happy they are outside", they are unable to do their "elite" sport with the rocks in their tracks, and yea, I am a cyclist first.

    You need more snow if a fat bike can skid through your base. Complain about the drought, not other users.
