Blackburn Airstik 3 is a decent mini pump to have around though a bit heavy. Performance is average, you will have to be very lucky to lock a tubeless tire on the rim, but it will work fine for adding air or with tubes. Dual Stroke design is more of a gimmick, but it makes small difference at lower pressures. The pump is reasonably priced, well built and looks good.
July 16, 2011 was another successful day of trail work at Grand Mesa. The weather cooperated again and although the turnout was modest this time, the crew was able to make good progress. At the end of the day the total length of Mesa Top Trail was over 2 miles.
About two dozen volunteers showed up on July 9, 2011 to participate in the construction of new Mesa Top trail in Grand Mesa National Forest atop of the world’s largest flat-top mountain. Together with the core crew many new trail building enthusiasts have completed more than 1.5 miles of spectacular single track.
Sovereign Trail is typical for Moab surroundings mix of single track, slick rock and Jeep roads. Most of the ride is on purposely built well defined single track. Good intermediate ride. There are some rock moves, small launches, short steep climb sections, but nothing big and unavoidable.
