    I really like the Angels Staircase loop. But it's not really a mountain bike ride...it's more of a backcountry experience where you bring your bike along and occasionally you get to ride it :)

    ^^ Agree, I would not give up on the area for later this fall. Last year, the last week of September, I went over with friends and rode the Angels Staircase loop. Driving up the valley from Pateros...

    Your route should be fine. There is no impact at the Yew/Broadway intersection. I'm going to ride that route Friday morning and will let you know if there are any impacts.

    I ran BB7's for years. They are adequate if you stay on top of the adjustment.

    Switched to TRP HY/RD's 3 years ago. Night and Day better. Better braking power, self-adjusting and self-centering...

    The gravel is not really deep, it's just very loose and very rough. On any kind of fully rigid bike it's going to be very uncomfortable.

    Outside of the State Park at Easton I don't know of any...

    I would say if you have heavy 25s (Gatorskins, etc.) you'll be fine. I rode it on 28 Gatorskins which are not that much wider than 25s. It's going to be a very uncomfortable ride, however. That...

    FWIW, you don't need to take the trail the whole way, just the section from Hyak to Stampede Pass is mandatory.

    Out of North Bend, ride on I-90 to Homestead Valley Rd. (exit 38). Exit, turn right...

    I rode it a couple months ago on a CX bike with 700x28 tires.

    If your 25s are really lightweight tires you will have a good chance of flatting. With a heavier tire you will probably be OK.

    I bought an 800 last summer when my 750 finally gave up the ghost. I got it at a nice discount because it was not the newest, flashiest model and I've been very happy with it.

    I ran BB7's for years. They worked fine but you have to stay on top of the pad adjustment to keep good braking power. I'm a daily commuter, 40 miles/day and I had to adjust mine at least weekly to...

    If you do a little googling on that license plate lookup website you'll see that those who have tried it are quite unhappy with the results (scam is a word that is repeated many times).

    There is a gravel rd. off Homestead Valley Rd. that will take you right up to the trail. Easy to see on Google Maps. Lot's of people park there to access the Iron Horse and other trails in the area.
