Hey Mangled Mongo, are you ManGold yet? While you're down, if you still are, could I pick your brain a bit? I've recently come down with the multiple sclerosis see, and I won't be able to ride bikes the same as I used too, but I'm still frequently around it and I'm thinking of getting a camera and shoving some of these punk Aptos photogs out of the way. That's how you get the good shot right? Gorilla instincts right? Anyway, if that's not the secret, could you recommend a good concise book or online source of photography info for the modern era? I'd like some general technical knowledge on various settings and such, but I'd like to focus on a modern DSLR type system. I found a cool camera bag with three adjustable inner compartments and a Tablet holder on each side. I figure I could be set up to shoot and send photos out like you Media Slaves. How much storage would I need in an I Pad to make it useful for on site photo storage? I figure I could have one for storage and one for use and movement. Anyway, hope you're well or at least getting weller this time. If you could hook a brother up that would be sweet. Just for a visual, we had dinner together one night in Truckee at a Mexican joint with Tammay!

I'm a photo newbie thinking of getting into it. What's technically wrong with this shot? Natural light, active angle, no fuzzy stuff in the foreground. School me. Sven?

Yeah. Any old BMX or MTB brake cable and housing. You could go super fancy colorful teflon coated BMX cable and housing, or just go down to the local and get some basic black and lube it well. All brake cables are pretty much the same size and strength. ... more »

Nope. Just standard cable and housing. How bout those cranks? Shimano? Profile? standard? nano?

I always ran a two to one ratio on my dirt jumpers, but al LOT of riders, at least riders in Aptos, use heavier ratios. I'm a bit curious. Are you going to run some BMX cranks or MTB?

11 tooth is the smallest that you can run on a standard MTB cassette hub. Chris King makes a killer stainless steel one that is worth the extra money at twenty five bucks or so. I used to run a 22-11 set up with one for years. My friend Jason discovered ... more »

I'd forgotten about the Shreddys. Man, that's like forgetting about Rampage! I'm slipping. I'm glad they're back. And as a fellow Josh, I'm honored to share the name of the legend.

Sweet. The biggest news there for me is that Mike Montgomery is on the team. Hadn't heard that. I've been waiting eagerly to see the new suspension design. I'm excited to see what Chris will come up with for it.

I've never considered that suspension seal trick. I'd be worried about damaging the seal. I've always just done it as part of suspension service while the lowers are off the bike.

Great to see Stevie back on a bike and ripping. Oh, and that was also a Rad concept well executed with some amazing riding.

I like those stealth black uniforms. Maybe they'll be the only team not in neon.

Thanks, we are excited about the product, too! Having completed the first two, now we are working on larger sizes. Everything must be designed and tested thoroughly to deliver equally high quality in all designs.

Were all those stops on purpose or is my computer screwing up?

I wish I had spare money and a need for a push bike. That is a bad ass design sure to save a few tiny testicles. And get kids ready for the feel of suspension. Will there be an adult sized one and will it come in XXL?
