Owenhouse Bicycling and Fitness Bozeman

A day before I did one of my rides in Bozeman, I went through my camelbak to check all my spare parts. I have made it a habit to carry 2 of everything I might need to at least get me off the trail if anything happens to my bike. I noticed that I only had one spare derailleur hanger, so I wanted to get a second. It was for a Giant, so I needed a Giant dealer. With a bit of research I found that Owenhouse Bicycling & Fitness in Bozeman was my best bet. Straight from my ride the next day … [Read more...]

Two days ago I busted my lungs climbing the Wallman Trail combining it with the Stuart Peak Trail, I knew while I went up Wallman that I had to come back soon and go down the trail, cos this loop definitely puts Missoula on the map, and should be on the wishlist of every mountain biker.
