Hey Powers that be, Big Bird the Mod here. (I always considered myself more Punk than Mod.) I've made two attempts to reign in a members trolling of another, but when I try to PM the troll, I just get the "Wait for it." flashing bar graph and the PM ... more »

New thread Which WC team would you be on? 8/12/2015 9:16 AM

So, avoiding the fact that you're too slow and out of shape to land a spot on a World Cup team, which team would you like to be on? I'm guessing that we'll hear a lot of Syndicate, Trek, Lapierre and Spesh, but I'm gonna throw a wrench in the works right ... more »

New thread Road Trippin' 6/28/2015 7:35 PM

You won't be hearing much from me in the coming month, which may come as a relief to some, as I'm heading off on a month long road trip to Alaska and back. We're actually taking a ferry for the last bit to see the coast and avoid the bad roads for the ... more »

New thread No Love for Nyquist? 6/22/2015 6:31 PM

I guess that I was wrong to assume that Ryan Nyquist tagging along with his Haro teammate Greg Watts to Leogang Austria for the 26 Trix contest would be some biggish news? He's one of the nicest guys in BMX and now he's dabbling in MTB. There are a lot ... more »

New thread Off the Bike Literally. 3/18/2015 9:37 AM

OOfa! I crashed my '76 Triumph the other day. I have no memory of the actual crash. It was on a straight away, so I'm guessing a deer jumped out in front of me or something. No broken bones, but lots of road rash even with a leather jacket. Tank, seat ... more »

New thread CX is Xtreeme. 3/11/2015 7:37 PM Early on in my MTB career, i was introduced to cycle cross at a race in Southern Oregon. I was amazed then and remain so now with the kind of bicycle control skills that the riders have.

New thread I was just reminded... 3/8/2015 8:38 PM

I recently picked up my ukulele again after not playing for a while and found the chords and lyrics to this tune by Mike Clark. I may have heard it here first, I'm not sure. Mike was a very talented trials rider back in our day if you will and apparently ... more »

New thread Rampage course idea. 2/2/2015 9:09 AM

Something just occurred to me for a potential Red Bull Rampage course feature. The contest is all about making the most of a limited course. Riders often do a lot of traversing to get to good lines. A straight run down the fall line from the start isn't ... more »

I'm trying to figure out why Vimeo videos don't play properly on my computer. I've just updated to Yosemite and updated Safari but I'm still having problems. It's mostly an issue of buffering. It lags and the video starts skipping around, and when I ... more »

New thread Canuk Sweep! 8/16/2014 10:31 PM

it must have been a good party up in Whistler, 'cause the powers that be here haven't posted the Joyride results. I just got done watching the replay. Canadian sweep led by Semenuk with his record third win.

I've never been very excited about having to wear the extra gear, around my neck of all places, and always balked at the price that the companies charge for your safety. (The high prices are probably due insurance costs in our modern "Sue 'em first and ... more »

Anyone got any scuttlebutt about the new frame from Specialized? Any theories? It could be as simple as a 27.5 Demo, or perhaps a whole new suspension design.
