Ratings and Reviews
This is a great application that I use and contribute content to regularly. I have a few suggestions that I think will make the tool even more useful.
Bike Maintenance: Trailforks knows how many miles and hours I’m logging on my specific bikes. It would be awesome if I could track my bike maintenance in the app as a simple time stamp, bike and description. When viewing an item on the schedule show the accumulated hours and miles on the associated bike since this time stamp.
Winter Trail Reports: More trail conditions specific to winter riding. I suggest: Deep/loose snow, packed snow, ice.
Map View OSM layer option: In many riding areas trails have been added to OpenStreetMap but have not been added to Trailforks yet. Being able to view OSM map data in the map view as a layer much like you can in the track editor would be a great way to research new riding areas and perhaps lead to contributed content.
How do they do it?
This is an amazing app. I first installed and used it in Whistler after a rave recommendation from a young gal in a coffee shop. And then had near local- strength intel for the rest of the visit. Then I turned it on before a ride at one of my regular trails in Seattle. It downloaded all of the US trails over the air in seconds, and gave me more route choice options. How do they make money to support their development? I would happily pay for quality like this.
This Is A Must Have App
I love the pink bike website so I thought that I would try out this app from them. Let me tell you that this app is amazing. I thought that and app could not have as much information as this app has. This app is so amazing that it has features that I did not even think that an app would have. This is an app that I would recommend any cyclist to get. If you are a mountain biker then this is your dream app.
