comment Mountain bike tires for rocky, steep, dirt trails?
I will definitely be in back country - bear bell country. I do want something durable and that will climb well on lose dry dirt, dead pine needles, and rocks. My current tires (S-Works Fast Trak LK) just never felt like they would hook up last year. I played with different tire pressures and nothing seemed to help.

Cross country... well in Breck/Summit County it is up country and down country, but more traditional single track albeit rocky single track. It is a xc hard tail - 2010 Stumpjumper. I currently have S-Works Fast Trak LK and that is because those were stock. Only ridden the bike about 30 times. Last season was cut short because I broke my clavicle going off a jump last October.

comment Metal seat post with carbon fiber frame?
I have actually considered that option. The bike store near me says that style of rack has been their most popular this year. Thanks for the tip though.

Well thanks, lantius! That was exactly the type of answer I was looking for. I also like a suggestion a friend gave me - buy another bike with rack mount points.
