Maybe you've already seen it, but it's been announced that the Pro GRT series is going to be televised in 2015. That's some huge news.

That could be a new feature at Crankworks! I'm not so sure that I'd do it though.

It sounds to me like you need a longer frame. A 90mm stem is already way long to really have fun with.

Nice vid Brandon. I didn't know you'd ever been to the Freedom 40. They've come a long way since then. And I never knew that Cobs' jumps were ever that advanced.

I wrote that last bit before watching the Clappin' ya Dome video. Man that took me back! That's me in the first shot watching in the white helmet. See, big lanky dork. DE LA JUMPS!!! Sorry, just had to yell. Man I miss that place. At one point Jamie ... more »

Gabe is one of the coolest dorks, and I say that lovingly as one myself, ever to jump a bike. So nice and so smooth. From what I've heard, the only thing delaying them for the last year was an issue about the water supply for the Town Center. #Jump Rumors ... more »

If we could drum up enough investment money for Zerode, they'd get so big that they'd have to have a World Cup team and Cam would have to come back!

I just looked to the right at an add for the P-Slope and was reminded that you'd need two different lengths of seat post due to it's interrupted seat tube. I'm sure that you could find an SX Trail for a song and a dance though. My friend had a real hard ... more »

Reply to newbie looking for the right bike 11/20/2014 8:37 AM

It's tricky to find a do it all bike for both jumping and trail riding. It does get a bit easier for smaller people. Judging by your screen name, you might just be petite enough. You might be able to get away with riding a Specialized P-Slope or a used ... more »

I've seen stand alone systems like this for the home, but never one this small. It could use a bit more slimming down for trail use though.

It's deffinately Needles on the left in the Faircloth photo. And would Cedric bother with the trip to Florence if he wasn't staying with Santa Cruz? http://www.vitalmtb.com/videos/member/Santa-Cruz-in-Florence,27449/970biking,307

I could see Blenky really blossoming there following Sam Hill. He's always been a super flow kind of rider where Sam Hill is kind of a mix of flow and burl. Perhaps Sam could teach Sam to burl through the flow and both do quite well. Do it Nige.

Reply to Can you handle 60 Miles? 11/16/2014 4:32 PM

I cannot now, but I did at least sixty in a day, I'm pretty sure sixty eight. It was the Turkey Burn one year in the past. It's a ride put on by the Warrior Society MTB Club in So Cal. I did the "A" group ride which was two loops up and down Saddleback? ... more »

While we didn't go as far and certainly didn't capture it as well on "film", my friends and I went to a beautiful lake basin that I can't remember the name of last year. It's a lot harder to pack for camping on a bike than just walking in, which I've ... more »

Please excuse me Jazzdhiman. I overlooked the obvious. Continue… …OK I will. I know mechanics at Santa Cruz and I've witnessed it in the pits. Enve wheels kind of break a lot. So why should the consumer pay so damn much for the R & D that these companies ... more »

Great customer service only goes so far. What's the price of all the down time waiting for a new rim? Like DubC said.

Reply to The Patent Thread - New and Wild MTB Inventions 11/7/2014 7:17 PM

Isn't that first one remarkably similar to the Browning Transmission of a decade or so ago? Great idea, but making it reliable was the issue I do believe. And come to think of it some other chap had a pretty good working prototype of his version a few ... more »

Reply to 2015 World Cup #1 in Lourdes France 11/6/2014 9:38 PM

Seems a proper rough and technical track with obviously very little pedaling. And like every bodies local trail where they wonder "Why can't we have a World Cup here?" The answer is, get your town to put up a ton of money to bring everyone there. I'm ... more »
