That would be amazing.

Reply to Why has no one won an EWS on a Santa Cruz Nomad? 10/3/2015 7:05 PM

As a tall guy, I'm hyper sensitive to crank angle and pedal placement as I've always had to run long cranks and deal with short person geometry. I'm aware of the pedal strike danger and yet I like the feeling of BB drop and being "In the bike." Again, ... more »

New thread Flashing Bar Graph of Death 10/3/2015 6:53 PM

Hey Powers that be, Big Bird the Mod here. (I always considered myself more Punk than Mod.) I've made two attempts to reign in a members trolling of another, but when I try to PM the troll, I just get the "Wait for it." flashing bar graph and the PM ... more »

It's good to see you back on your feet Herbs. Build well. Get FESTy on it.

Now that I really think about it. I'm gonna say a Gorilla Gravity DH bike. In XXL. DH made in Murica. With diamond grit brake pads. I just made that last bit up. But boy they would slow you down fast. You would go through rotors pretty fast though. Million ... more »

Santa Cruz does need to step it up a bit on the enduro scene. The Nomads throw a great party, but they're not winning races. Same with Cedric. There's so much local talent there in town. And in Denver too of course.

Bad LBS. You're supposed to be the good guys. "Customer for life" and all that. It's time to do right by this man if you want to keep him, and probably most of his riding buddies, around. Perhaps we only have half of the story and you guys were upfront ... more »

That would be amazing. How 'bout this for rumor mongering... I'm sure that Martin knows perfectly well what was inside those Honda bikes. And GT loves that futuristic stuff. Let's bring back the secretive days of tents within tents and complete unknowns. ... more »

It would/will? be cool to see what he comes up with next. He should really just cut the crap and hire a good engineer, build his own bike company and use his skills for himself instead of the profits of others. He's smart enough and is probably bored ... more »

Yea. I've got one on my CBR 600.

Reply to What's your dream bike? 9/29/2015 6:24 PM

I'm stuck on DH shuttles due to my MS. I'm pretty stoked on YT of late and would love to try one of their bikes. In terms of "Bang for the buck", these are dream bikes, so I might as well go carbon, XXL.

I don't know... Even Rob Roscop might balk at that party potential. Though it would be great to get the brothers back on the same team. And Wyn is a media powerhouse. Hey Rob!

If Santa Cruz are in fact loosing Minnar, who might they pick up to replace him? Brook reminds me a lot of Rennie.

The farther away you push the party, the rowdier it gets. The Syndicate have proved that. Let the Lads have their fun. It's been refreshing entertainment.

Thank you EddyDave. That was much more directly useful than my comment. Still "Riding" means more than just pedaling.

Reply to Looking for places to rent mountain bike at Portland Oregon 9/21/2015 8:44 AM

I lived in Portland for a year and bought my first "Real" mountain bike there at a shop called the Fat Tire Farm. It's in the North West on the way to Forest Park. I haven't been there in years, so I'm not sure if they have a rental fleet, but they're ... more »

Hey folks. You may already be aware, but many of the video links are showing up as a one inch black bar across the screen with a little thumbnail video in the middle.

I'd like to see someone pushing the limits of the big drop even further.
