Check out the little link at the top, just under the steer tube. The damping is all contained inside the steer tube and is adjustable on the fly from the top. It's shown in the video.

Ugly but effective. When does the DH version come out?

The ultimate chute run.

Just nit picking here, but I always rout the front brake line to the inside of the fork leg to avoid damage.

Andreau is kicking ass and confident. He's a major threat.

You can, but it will slacken your head angle (Good for some.) and raise your BB (Bad for most.)

Loose the slime ball yellow.

So tough to say. I think that Gwin has got to be embarrassed and pissed off enough after having to coast down in Andora to really focus and get this title. Bruni is a possibility right along with Troy and Hart. I'd love to see Josh go out with a bang, ... more »

Longer and lower CG?

I'm strictly traditional. I rode bikes long before motos. I have no problems switching between the two now.

Mmmm. Beer. Thank you.

Yeah Devin!

I've been on both sides of this coin. One just pulls over enough to allow a pass.

Reply to The Internet Was Wrong: Short Chainstays Suck* 7/18/2016 1:44 PM

I respectfully disagree. I am my own "Bike manufacturer." and at 6'7" tall, my current DH bike has 16 3/8" chain stays and I love it. With front centers getting linger and longer, and mine are plenty long, a short chain stay keeps the overall wheel base ... more »

No arguments here. I'd just like to second the motion of "Learn to dirt jump." You'll never be the fastest down a trail if you're slamming on the brakes for every lip. Besides... Jumping is fun.

I feel you brother.. She's a beaut. But I bet that if you give that 5010 some time, you and your taint will thank it. Everything just takes a bit more time. (Milliseconds.)

Reply to Which Bike Do You Regret Selling? 7/9/2016 7:45 PM

I'm just about with you brother. I've only ever sold one bike and it was a red XL HecklerX. I don't much miss it.

Nice Man. I was going to recommend a Circus.

Reply to DJ frame and rebuild 6/29/2016 3:26 PM

That fork is certainly a classic. And looks pretty beat.

Reply to Riding Solo - Love It or Hate It? 6/23/2016 6:21 PM

I've certainly had some of my best and longest rides solo. Back when I was a younger, healthier man, I used to love to go out and punish myself along an awesome adventure. I've done the Gabrialiano trail from the bottom of Mt. Wilson Toll Rd. more than ... more »
