Boosh! I rode today for the first time in almost a year. The last time was just as I was recovering from my first attack of MS. It's been half a year at least and I was a bit amazed at how much "Flow" I have lost. I survived two push up runs on Hill ... more »

While I personally am not a huge fan of the company for personal reasons, I keep having to recommend Specialized as they have an excellent range of reasonably priced and well designed dirt jump bikes in the form of the P Series. I'd recommend the highest ... more »

Andreu is a big big man in a small man's body.

Worth a little road rash.
Reply to If you could do one thing on a bike REALLY well, what would it be? 4/26/2015 8:06 AM
I suppose it's not one thing, but I'd just like to be an all around rider like Chris Acrig.

Even though Santa Cruz is kind of a mountain bike mecca, it's also full of environmentalists that understandably don't like to see the forest torn up. If it was just the folks from Santa Cruz using the trails there probably wouldn't be any problems. ... more »

I've slowed down a lot lately due to an MS diagnosis and general old age, but when I do I generally ride at my friend Eric's house. He lives on forty acres just South of Santa Cruz. It's come to be known as the Freedom 40, as it's a forty acre property ... more »

The hand clap video montage was genius. I really hope there's more video coverage of the FEST series this year. I'm heading North.

Naw. I just need some new motorcycle parts. All of my skin bits are grown back and my jacket only has one small hole. Almost ready for summer.

Gotta get there. Got there... A day late. Red Bull said it was going on till Monday.

Those points represent a big difference for this year. Those pros that might not bother have the option to gather points towards racing World Cups. That's some incentive. I dream of/beg for the return of proper world class racing in the United States. ... more »

I lived through neon the first time and I hope we're at the end of the second coming. Perhaps I'll miss the third coming.

Sweet. Go for it, there needs to be more of it. I suscribed already. Mayhap I'm the first.
Reply to Is it possible to grow an MTB STREET Youtube channel? 4/18/2015 8:35 AM
Sure. Go for it? Why bother even thinking about failure? Do what you like and have fun. I'll watch. I'm curious, do you ride BMX style street moves or are you into street trials? I used to do both years ago.
Reply to Why are so many bikes black? 4/18/2015 8:32 AM
Most of my bikes that I've made are black. Two hard tails and my DH bike. For my slope bike I went the opposite with white. I've liked my bikes "Murdered" for years now, not just as a reaction to all of the horribly ugly neon bikes popping up now a days. ... more »

Can't wait. Something in me says that after years of coming up and being ready... It's time for Loric to step up and become a national hero. If only for the potential Disney fairytale story money involved.

I've been running 20x110 on all my bikes since the DHO was released. So I'm definitely gonna stay with that. I've got too many front wheels to go back now. For the rear, I'm gonna have to max it out at 150mm so that the maximum number of options are ... more »
