Well, that's gonna be hard to beat. Just give him the pads or the hoodie shoes or what ever and let's start over.

Back in the original hubs, I was told that they were oval shaped roller bearings that wold align on their narrow axis while coasting and roll and lock up to drive while pedaling. That must not have worked well enough and they switched to the ramps and springs?

"No animals were hurt in the making of this film." Just a bunch of lousy mountain bikers. Can't wait...

I first heard of these back when I rode trials with OTM and later 180 Magazine 'round the turn of the century. They are the perfect trials hub, but back then they were having problems with reliability of materials. (Perhaps why the went to the heavier stainless steel.) And they waited a decade to finally release them, before releasing a poor or questionable product. That's honor in manufacturing right there.

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.

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.

I haven't gotten two sentences in and I already agree whole heartedly. I'll check in as soon as I read the rest, or probably before... Bravo, more... Could have and did tell the world this a decade ago... Short chain stays!... I think that I might retire. This has been my life's work and now it has been stated by an actual engineer type... What's left? I already told you this Gorilla Gravity... Make it happen!

I hate to be a dick, but shouldn't the bus be going back up the hill? Sorry for paying attention. It could just be a dip in the road? We have a couple of longer versions here in Santa Cruz. Empire Grade to the west and the longer Hwy 9 bus up 236 for the slog up China grade, over Gazos Creek and down Hwy 1 to town. I did that twice on my old Super Eight downhill bike. There must be busses up some of the epic Colorado passes? Or an epic Park City run?
