RIPROW Mountain Bike Trainer

Some folks think there smart phones spy on them by listening to what they say. Well I often feel that way too but now I will take it one step further, I think my phone can read my mind. Yesterday I was out mountain biking after an 8 week layoff due to a bum knee and bad weather I found that my stamina and strength was already reduced. Prior to this I wrote about getting a Fox Transfer Dropper Post installed on my Ibis. I noticed with the new found territory behind the saddle that I was missing some key muscles that would improve my riding. This two things got me to thinking that someone should make a trainer for mountain bikes. Well in a strange turn today my iPhone showed me an instagram ad for the Riprow Mountain Bike Trainer.

Bike Water Bottle Cage | Pro Bike Tool | Matt Black

Repair Tubeless Bike Tire | Dynaplug Micro Pro Review

Let’s back up a bit. A couple years ago, the first two years with my Trek Rumblefish Elite I was plagued with flat tires.

The conversation actually ended up in a new set of wheels but that story is for another day. Anyhow once switching to tubeless mountain bike tires I remained flat free for nearly three years.

2017 Starting Over

I’m always at my best or should I say in my element when in the company of twenty somethings. People my own age often act old. I have little time for that. In an interesting timing I have a new coworker, early 20’s who I have found refreshing to be around. We share many similar likes and interesting differences. He also happens to be an avid mountain biker and a willing participant to contribute to this website.

If all goes as planned or even close to planned spring 2017 will see this site grow with useful, original and fun content. It is also my expectation that this relationship and website revival will be exactly what I need get my health back in order.
