I've never even heard of Wiggle.

Or you could just trust in your fellow human beings. But that's a crap shoot. But I tend to do it anyways and I've been good so far.

On second thought, perhaps quality rental insurance is the ticket, though that doesn't help much when it's time to ride and you have no ride.

Proper security for a big old Enduro machine is a great whopping big knoife. No, wait that's Aussi. How do you say knoife in Kiwi? You've got big gnarly sticks and the baddest screw face in the land. That might be all that you need. Otherwise, try to ... more »

Not tobacco. And not meth or crack either I should point out.

Nice. Timing is almost everything. It looks like a lot of different sized lines. Did you guys plan it out beforehand and work by the numbers? Or was it freestyle?

Hook a kid up and enjoy the jerky. At least that's my vote. Maybe he could come and sweep out the warehouse?

What is Rupert's bike? That's a sexy beast, and quite advanced if homemade. I like the turned up top tube under the brace.

Thanks for those reposts Fred. And welcome to the club Goos3.

Reply to Which Component Do You Drop First? 2/4/2016 4:18 PM

I once did a forty one mile single speed race on my downhill bike and survived. Though the race was rather flat and I didn't use much of the suspension or brakes, I still say loose the gears.

Wow, that's a lot of dirt moved. Did you guys have heavy equipment?

Good point on the toe protection. It occurred to me as I was reading that ,that instead of a big, covers the whole front of the foot and doesn't flex much type support, it could connect to the sole of the shoe and wrap around just the front and sides ... more »

Thanks for that Woody.

Crazy. Or is it psychopathic?

Rightish face but way too tall.

That Bruni prototype is only that. It's a geometry mule to fine tune the feel of the suspension. Once they, or he, likes it, it will be whittled away to look like the Gwin link, just with slightly different geometry.

Reply to Just how big is Crabapple Hits? 1/31/2016 4:56 PM

Sven should know. Does it really matter as long as they flow? Last time that I was there they were in the forty foot range. They've gotten bigger since. I seem to recall an empty ski slope just along side. Let's build Crabapple Fest!

Reply to whats with this demo swing link 1/30/2016 5:56 PM

If anything, that shot must be of an early prototype of the Gwin link. The part that he rode (Above.) was way lighter. I'm sure that if Spec offers this part in the future it will be somewhere in between the two.

Nope. Check the face at :49.

Reply to [Video] How to CORRECTLY setup rebound damping 1/25/2016 5:18 PM

Thanks Andrexter. That was well useful. I've always used to use just a basic off the bike push and release method and tuned the rebound so that when I release quickly the tire only just stays on the ground instead of bouncing up. Perhaps that technique ... more »
