The Norco Vixa is designed by Darcy Turenne. She made it for women who want to ride a light, fast, and agile bike, but still want the downhill suspension. I just bought it and I can’t stop thinking about it , it’s my new love or lust can’t tell yet, but what I can tell is that the Vixa has taken my riding to a different level already. Before it was a struggle for me to even lift a bike with suspension and now I find myself lightly pre-loading with little effort and I am going higher and further in the air. The low stand over height has already saved my butt in a couple of situations. The components on it are really good, the Avid Juicy hydraulic brakes are smooth and plush through the Tahoe sandy turns and the Sram shifters are really easy to use. Also, the Marzocchi 55 fork is lockable from 120 to it’s max suspension of 160!! This is really nice for the commute to work. Because the bike is so light and is lockable it makes it an easy peddler up hill too, I noticed a big difference. The colors are a plus too, but be careful the bling factor is an eye catcher and a conversation piece, so if you don’t like the attention I suggest going in a few mud puddles before going in public. For any girl who wants to go anywhere, do anything, and still keep up with the guys, the Norco Vixa is the choice bike on the market.

Shoreline has been selling Airtrekkers, and the former brand name Jumping stilts (powerisers) for over five years now, and all this time I noticed that the Europeans are far better then the Americans at Jumping stilts…so this begs the question why? I have spent some time in Europe, and think I know why they are better then us… European Pavement sucks! Their streets are almost un-skateable. The American go for it kid, that would kick ass on airtrekkers is doing backside rodeo’s on his skateboard instead…meanwhile check out this vid from Europe…if any of us Americans want to sellout our love of for skateboarding and take on the Euro’s in this up and comming sport, I’m sure we would hold our own…meanwhile check out this vid from across the pond…its sick!
Yeah rain is kinda a bummer if you’re into outdoor activities, but you can’t let a few drops get you down. I’ve found that I’ve had some of the best days ever riding in the rain. In Tahoe, the dirt A.k.a dust is pretty brutal and right now the rain has turned our normal dust ridden trails into epic, fast, actual dirt. I know that this is no big deal most everywhere, but here in Tahoe, riding in the rain is really pretty fun.
Couple of things to remember when heading out in some wet weather:
A nice waterproof shell to keep your body regulated, I prefer Gore-Tex as it breathes the best and keeps me dry. If you don’t have a shell that is ready to be deemed dirt worthy, Nikwax offers a few different waterproofing agents for your old fleece or cotton hoodie, as well as for your gloves. Cotton Proof, Polar Proof and Glove Proof (all available at Shoreline of Tahoe) are all helpful in turning your existing dirt gear into foul weather gear.
Depending on the temperature, your normal bike shorts may work, but if it is colder you may want some wicking first layers or waterproof pants. If its really coming down, you may want some neoprene booties to keep your toes dry.
If rain is common in your area, fenders are a great way to keep the tire spray off of your back. Rear racks also work for preventing the dreaded mud stripe as well as being able to carry some of your gear for you. Some of the newer style rear racks mount directly to your seat post and allow installation on full-suspension style bikes as well.
Don’t forget your normal necessities; tube, pump, tools, energy bar and water! Plus extra dry clothes and socks for when you get back to your vehicle!!
The Kingsbury Stinger, the Corral Loop, The Flume Trail and Powerline trails are all notoriously sandy loose trails, but right now are offering some of the best riding around! Stop in either Shoreline location for maps and directions to these and many other sweet rides!!

Lake Tahoe Derby Dames seen here in their very first home game. Lake Tahoe’s first pro team is the Lake Tahoe Derby Dames. The LT Derby Dames went to battle with “the Beach Flat Betties” from Santa Cruz, at the end the more experienced Santa Cruz team ended up winning. This is going to be a local favorite thing to do, the turn out was very impressive. The Shoreline of Tahoe filming crew showed up to capture all the action. We got right in the mix, skated backwards with the steadycam we use for filming skiing & snowboarding. What a blast! hope you enjoy the Footy.
