The very first X Games in San Diego had DH. Just bring it back.

Made of plastic and air. Lightweight. That might actually be worth running on the EWS. Integrate the air storage into the frame and you could have a lot more blasts.

Roit! O.K. Just like we lash and whip (Is there a difference?) our resident photographers to provide us with ever more bike porn, we also expect way too much out of our resident cartoonists. We've all done our parts starting vicious rumors and being ... more »

Thanks Warthog. Jean Phillippe, it never occurred to me to try to visually untangle that mess. Are you following lines? I would think that Sunn would want a French rider. Doesn't Loric Bruni say yeah a lot?

I had a day dream that Peaty and Minaar retired and Santa Cruz hired Sam Dale and Adam Brayton and changed the team name to the Rat Pack. Thanks for coming back Team Rumors! As for the Rambo figure… who was it that had the sweet helmet with George Washington ... more »

Formula claims DH level braking in their two piston brakes.

Well then, I call on all of the happy riders that have savored his trails to provide him with his Balling needs. Or a fancy shovel. I really like the polished and engraved shovel idea. But don't tell Ballr.

Reply to The Green Pulasky Award 9/1/2014 6:36 PM

I've been awake at night wondering about that Baller. I shall correct that and try to figure out the whole picture thing. Who's your Trail Boss and how you gonna help him Ball?

Reply to Salsa and Rose Bike..Heve heard about them?? 8/18/2014 6:24 PM

Salsa is an American company that's been around for years and Rose is a European company that has fielded a World Cup team. I like the Salsa.

Addidas eyewear at least used to make some great dual lens goggles meant for MTB. They had amazing anti fog properties.

I dig the first one and the last one.

Welcome Nick. For future use, BOOSH should always be capitalized.

Reply to How to FIX Boxxer compression damper 8/2/2014 6:35 PM

You should be good. I'm pretty sure they went to bigger scansions in 2010. I'm stuck with an '09 but it's good so far. Rock Shox has great instructions online. They even out out a video that's somewhere here on Vital. Or have your local bike shop do ... more »

New damper time. If you've got a newer Boxxer, you can upgrade to the new Charger damper.

The Telluride World Cup was awesome too. 2002 I think?

Reply to Start of the Downhill Family.... 7/29/2014 9:05 AM

Welcome to the family Mike. I'm gonna say to stick with a 26 inch bike. Given your experience on 20's, any added roughness is gonna disappear under the suspension, and the 26's will be stronger for a beginner to bash on. You'll also be able to find way ... more »

Reply to Specialized Enduro 650B vs. Devinci Spartan 7/17/2014 3:56 PM

Like His Dudeness said, I'd hold off and go to Canada with your current bike. That way you could actually try them both on at the local Canadian bike shop. And the price may well be lower without our steep tariffs.
