    Re: 10/25-27 planning (Moab?)

    Hey Udi - so far no one else is going, so my wife and I are just planning on taking our mountain bikes and doing non-motorized stuff. Louis was interested to go and bring his old land cruiser a...

    Re: Feeler-winch cable and fairlead.

    No rush Tom...I am thinking I could probably use a nice new steel cable on my old winch - the old cable is a bit kinked and fraying just a bit in spots. The ramsey fairlead mounts are 11" apart - not...

    Too much crawl ratio?

    Always lots of discussion about CR and how much gear reduction is needed....thought this piece of artwork sums it up well:

    Re: Feeler-winch cable and fairlead.

    I might be interested in the cable...not sure if the roller fairlead would work for me as the old ramsey winches used a wider fairlead - I think....

    Re: Jenny Creek & Rollins Pass East Sat Oct 17

    I intend to leave my house around 8am go via Golden Gate Canyon rd - I've driven coal creek canyon a few too many times over the last year or two. I don't believe there is any gas in Rollinsville, so...

  11. Re: Saturday Oct 17 - Rainbow Falls / Little Moab

    Don't know if you have a log-in with Trails Offroad (I only have the free account), but you can see Rollins Pass here (we start at the south end near Tolland), and if you click on the grey circle...
  12. Re: Saturday Oct 17 - Rainbow Falls / Little Moab

    Yes - sort of a loop, but not quite....start going up on Rollins Pass east, then move over to Jenny Creek and go up Jenny creek. It sort of parallels Rollins Pass Rd. Jenny Creek terminates back into...

    Re: SBC 350 questions

    My check of the valve guides clearances suggest they are okay....one suggestion is that the valves were never properly lapped during the previous work. The really bad carbon build up pictured was...

    Trent - what are thinking for Sat...Sat is the better day for me to wheel as well...What do think of Jenny Creek combined with Rollins Pass east?
  18. Re: What I hate about Moab.... and I'm not alone

    I think that is the key mental state to have...don't go to the main moab trails and expect to be alone. The trails are great, but expect it to be a bit crowded. If one needs to be solitary on the...

    Re: 10/25-27 planning (Moab?)

    Its a lot of fun - especially with the cooler weather. Just like wheeling, riding on the slickrock is pretty unique, and I much prefer it to riding in front range Colo. After MTBing in Moab for a...
  20. Re: What I hate about Moab.... and I'm not alone

    There are MTB only trails in Moab - but many, if not most, of the 'famous' ones are the same as the jeep trails - or combine short sections of single track with sections of the 4wd trails. As both a...

    Re: Sunday October 18, Up for something

    Sort of seeing how things develop with Sat planning...but Sun in the Peru creek area might be interesting. I might stick around and camp Sun night and do some hiking on Monday and avoid the Sun night...
  24. Re: What I hate about Moab.... and I'm not alone

    I like that as a possibly solution - but I think traditional licensed 4wds might have to be willing to alternate as well. A similar system between MTBers and hikers is in place on some busy trails...
  25. Re: What I hate about Moab.... and I'm not alone

    Its always a challenge to balance the issues...As a hiker, MTBer and 4x4er, I greatly appreciate the 'everyone gets along' attitude that has generally defined moab for the last 20 years. Certainly,...
