I think it's a gift for The Rat for winning last year. He's a drifter and like to "Back it in" to turns.

CO2 can be so hit and miss. If you get the valve wrong and loose all the CO2 you're screwed. Leave it for racing. I always keep a pump on hand, even if it's a tiny Crank Works one and takes ten minutes to fill a tube. I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned ... more ยป

Yeah, he's getting paid to bike, but you can tell Cam just loves to ride his bike.

NO one built these SECRET trails. They're just deer trails well ridden in by a handful of locals like reseRved and not the entire Bay Area free ride scene. And yes, they're as awesome as they look. Thank you deer.

Love/hate seeing vids like this featuring secret trails that I know are 10 minutes from my home. How about just a cryptic hint?

Finally a fat bike vid with sand and snow, instead of a bunch of awkward turns on dirt. Mitch did pretty well in terms of awkward aside from the need for excessive foot offs as pointed out by russthedog. #almostnotawkward

OOfaa. His stem came off the fork! Perhaps his bolts should have been torqued down a wee bit more?

I'm so with you General. Being 6'7", I've been making my own fames to fit me for years and the first number that I'll design a whole frame around is the down tube length. Exactly as you said, it the quickest and easiest way to know how a bike will feel standing up. While I haven't built myself a trail bike yet, for dirt jumpers, trials bikes, slope style bikes and downhill bikes, it's the number to know.

Yes, anyone who passed grade school math can do that. But I shouldn't have to rely on Pythagoras when the manufacturers can just provide the measurement. And many still don't post reach/stack or use conflicting axel/crown measures. Downtube length...more

I've been harping on this for years to my friends in the bike biz to no avail, but I really wish manufacturers would publish their downtube measurements. I know, I know its not perfect but it will give you at least a ballpark figure of how a bike will...more
