I like those stealth black uniforms. Maybe they'll be the only team not in neon.

Reply to DH Bike and tall rider? 12/13/2014 6:23 PM

Sorry Son, you live in a small world. I'm 6'7" and have dealt with sizing since I started riding. At this point I've gotten tired of waiting and just make my own. The 18" frame size isn't so much an issue. On a downhill bike the seat is generally for ... more »

Truth. Good call. They could all be hanging out before or after a hush hush Fox product preview while Peat and Bryceland were in town for the Santa Cruz Chistmas party slash V-10 release.. And I second the San Pligrino team roumor. Love the stuff.

Reply to Mechanic Help Norco Sight shock 12/11/2014 5:23 PM

The only possible fit issue I can see with the Cane Creek is the big barrel fitting into the upper link. It looks to me like there's plenty of room for a piggy back shock in that frame. As long as it's at the top facing foreword that is.

Yes, there's a huge amount of personal preference. Being a man with big hands, size twelves poke through pretty quick and thirteens are hard to find, I tend to run my shifter in different places than most people and my brakes down closer to vertical ... more »

Check out the product section here at Vital. Up at the top of the page.

I just tried again. It's on the main page. I scroll down to the bottom with Ray George and Vital Instagram and below that all of the enticing numbers beconning me to pages of the past. When I click on two or any other number, it just puts me back up ... more »

Sometimes it's refreshing hearing the whole word endurance instead of enduro enduro enduro. I looked real hard… Is that a new Kona under Connor or is this older Kona footage?

New thread Having a wee problem 12/1/2014 4:48 PM

I'm trying to go back a page on the main site and it just takes me back up near the top of page one. I've tried going to the third page and the same thing. I was trying to get back to the Post Office closing article to connect with Cam McCall to see ... more »

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.

Reply to What's The right size? 11/26/2014 8:45 AM

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!

Reply to newbie looking for the right bike 11/20/2014 8:44 AM

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 »

Reply to This Water Bottle Refills Itself 11/19/2014 8:16 AM

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.
