    just picked up the c02 system...1 cartridge is good for 1 tire.....cant wait to blow out a tire and try it out

    They are o.k. Really better for the road, where its difficult to get a minipump that will give you 110 lbs of pressure. It's not too hard to pump up a mtn tire to 40 lbs. You have to be careful about being certain that the tube is set properly in the wheel...before pumping up with the CO2. I've seen someone get a blowout from pumping them up with the cartridge.

    I have one of those too, 1 cartridge is NOT enough for 1 tire. It's enough to get you out of the woods if needed, but it's not enough for me to ride comfortably on. The two times that I've blown out I used the CO2 to get it most of the way there and then had to use the pump to get it the rest of the way.

    Based on Google Earth and the WM map, I estimated our ride was about 4.5 miles.

    Cool, I'll take your word for it. On that map you can see some of the dirt roads I was telling you about.

    I found a report somewhere online about some rides to the East side of Pitch Reservoir in the lower right corner of that map. Might be another area worth scoping out.

    Yeah, I tried looking for those trails a few times, but all I found was several No Tresspassing signs.

    It's kinda funny, the White Memorial trail map on bikerag shows only trails in the area that you're talking about, which is completely outside of the White Memorial property.
