Pretty sure that's the message y'all are being sent by the people who OWN THIS SITE.

I don't like the orange guy with teeny tiny hands either, but it seems the time has finally, thankfully, come for the bickering and name calling to end in regards to politics.

Get over it and talk about climbing, skiing, BASE, hiking, running, riding your freaking bike. Find topics that don't involve politics, and call each other names about those things.

you must be one of them dreamers, kid. :-)

I am sick of TRs getting bumped off by political threads too. same as it ever was.


and the fact that the "why it happened" thread got locked when people were solely dogging on the PE mystifies me.

It's true, I'm a dreamer. 'Kid' is a relative term though.

I'm listening to the press conference by the PEOTUS right now and my blood is about to boil. What am I doing? Getting stoned, not calling someone else names on Supertopo.

You're ok in my book, TBC.

Thanks Brandon. I respect you too.

I do not believe that name-calling between ST users has been a big problem recently. I do believe that political discussion is important and vital to democracy, it is something that naturally occurs between climbing partners.

Put the bong down sir and check out that organization Obama is getting behind to build communities with the ability to promote and pass progressive policies

Way ahead of you, GCF. Living in a small town makes it easier to be involved with what happens, and I am. Small town New Hampshire town meetings are interesting. All the old timers have died now, but in our town the meetings were dually purposed; you voted on measures and were given the floor if you wanted to speak, and, you watched the old timers speak their piece like the true backwoods farmers that they were. And they had pull, as they owned large tracts of land in town, passed down from colonial times.

Well then let's get on with it....

Down or synthetic for a sleeping bag?

Can I mark my rope with organic, gluten-free crayons?

Down. Don't mark, just know.

Good thought, Brandon.




The only climbing I know of that gets instantly better with added water. Until you hit an electrified fence...

Thought you might enjoy this quote from Obamas' final speech
“If you’re tired of arguing with strangers on the internet, try to talk with one in real life,” Good on you for your community involvement.

Would a carbon fiber frame be better for those conditions?

I loved my yellow gen 1 Bronson, but I recently paid the frame forward to a buddy and the parts toward the wife's upgrade to come.

The steed pictured is a Czar 1.2 from Turner Suspension Bicycles, Temecula CA. Of course the frame was made in Asia. Super cool to go chat with the dood who designed your bike, demo one. Don't forget the $600 Turner frame trade-in program.



"XC/Trail" sounds market-y until you swap out some parts and check out the range. I've never pedaled anything so responsive to pedal input. Still, that Pike fork does a good job of destroying chunk...and helping me forget the Bronson : )

PS: Luddite alert...no dropper, 10-sp.


Would a carbon fiber frame be better for those conditions?


Haha, yes, just because plastic bikes look cool : D

Seriously, though...had to think about it when I was stopped temporarily by an electric fence in MT. My bike had a steel frame. I tossed it over and shimmied a wooden support. No wooden support on the other end of the property, but just enough room to slide under. Google Maps routefinding roulette, fun game...

That frame geometry looks like it will climb like a dream and judging by that front ring you are running there is no shortage of that!
