Anyone ride there much?

Anyone come away from there with flat tires? Pinhole leaks?

Maybe it's just a extremely strange coincidence, but I now have 8 plugs in 3 brand new OEM Rincon tires. I was running 3 psi all day long.

I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced anything similar after being there.

Here is a link to Tasker's Gap.

I am in Front Royal. Yeah, we could meet up for a ride. That would be cool.

It's rocky up there, but I don't think that is what chewed my tires up. My friend with a Foreman and stock tires didn't have any problems. I think I must have gotten into some trash on a trail somewhere to get a bunch of punctures.

I have just installed a set of Bear Claws on my bike, so hopefully I won't have any more problems with flats.

ok yeah, that would work, what kinda riding do you have up there, is it lots of trails. I didn't get a chance to check out that website too much. Your about two hours from me.

We have ridden up there quite a bit. I've never seen anyone in our group have any tire troubles up there. It is kinda rocky though. I'm in Winchester and work in FR. Have you ever ridden down at S. Peddlar in Staunton?

A friend of mine and myself have been there twice now. Lots of rocks everywhere. We haven't checked out every single trail, but the ones we have been on are rocky. The most difficult trails are a good challenge for crawling along in 4WD in 1st gear. We haven't encountered any smooth trails yet where you can get up any speed. You can get up to 15-20mph in 4th gear, but anything beyond that with a utility quad is a handful to control. Expect to wake up the next morning with sore kidneys and an aching back. Maybe I'm just starting to geez at age 36.

I haven't had any tire issues after switching to Bear Claws.

Where do you work?

I have never been to Staunton, but wouldn't mind checking it out sometime.

Maybe when we know soon enough in advance, people can post up when they are going to either place. I wouldn't mind doind a camping trip to Tasker's one time. That might be fun to do. Nothing like the smell of bacon and eggs in the woods!

I work for Comcast. We keep saying we're gonna get together and ride. Seems like schedules are pretty tough right now for us all to get together. I'm off next week and I'm gonna try to do some riding then.
