Some smartypants Euros have had one of my "Million Dollar Ideas" and made it a reality. Pretty cool. http://dirtmountainbike.com/news/airdog-ultimate-bit-kit-ultimate-action-sport-selfie.html#!3K8wo

New thread Maybe a neck brace? 5/2/2014 4:27 PM

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 »

New thread New Specialized? 4/27/2014 8:22 AM

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.

New thread LA Riders 12/30/2013 8:55 AM

I saw an article on the LA Times website about four mountain bikers that were missing overnight on a ride from Mount Wilson down to JPL. That sounds like the Gabrielano Trail which I've described to many as Downieville in LA. But I thought that it had ... more »

New thread i" Judy crown 12/10/2013 9:01 AM

I'm rehabbing an old Kestrel for a local Doctor and it has an old clapped out AMP fork. I have most of the parts to build him a Rock Shox Judy, but I'm lacking a crown with a one inch steer tube. The bike currently has an old school threaded head set ... more »

New thread Rampage Cliffhangers 10/26/2013 9:44 PM

So I just watched a Red Bull Best of Rampage video and it reminded me of a couple of unanswered questions that I have. First off, is Cam Zink a daddy yet and are the two Cams gonna arrange play dates? And how is Mitch Chubby doing? In the Red Bull replay ... more »

New thread Rampage Wishlist 10/7/2013 8:38 PM

Rampage is coming. I was hoping to finally get out there as a digger until the three man team rule came out. One wish dashed. But I have others and I'm sure you do too. Here's mine. Last year with no three man build team rule Brandon Semenuk and family ... more »

New thread Stoke UP the fire for life. 7/15/2013 9:19 PM

This weekend my friend and I drove seven hours each way to hang out with friends and ride downhill bikes. In the morning we rode the usual tourist trap shuttle and rode some OK trails and a lot of fire road. In the afternoon though, we hooked up, and ... more »

New thread Whaddabout, if MTB and BMX combined? 7/3/2013 9:29 PM

So I just finished watching Ryan Nyquist's YouTube channel, which ended with the Red Bull Elevation BMX dirt jump contest in Whistler. The course was amazingly fun looking and any mountain bike freestyler worth his pay would have a ball on it. If Red ... more »

New thread Renamed tricks or subtle differences? 7/1/2013 8:26 PM

Roight. So I just came from watching a bunch of X Games BMX Vids, and something is bothering me. (And I don't like bother.) When did a decade become a 360 downside whip, and isn't a corked 720 just a backflip 360? Does it have to be super corked to be ... more »

New thread Toobless Goo 6/20/2013 3:03 PM

I'm tired of answering questions around here. (At least the ones I have answers for.) And now I want answers dammit! I've been using Stan's tire sealant for years now. As a non pro racer, I'm not constantly changing my tires and use enough air pressure ... more »

New thread Long live Ray George 5/6/2013 2:20 PM

Don't worry folks... I was just down at the Bike Trip in Santa Cruz doing a test build for a potential job there, when someone said that they just read in the local paper that Ray George and his brother were killed in a canoe accident yesterday. We were ... more »

New thread Palm springs tram? 4/8/2013 8:27 PM

I was just checking the news on the LA Times site and there was an article on the tram that goes from the desert to who knows how many feet? I'm pretty sure it's a lot and cold at the top. Is there a trail to the bottom? Is it legal? Can you bring a ... more »

New thread Forks for 650B 12/18/2012 8:52 AM

I think that this is the first time I've asked a question here. Usually I just answer them, but I haven't worked in a bike shop since niners came around. I was lead to believe that a 650/27.5" wheel and tire will just fit in a standard 26" fork. But ... more »

New thread American MADE Downhill Bikes 9/5/2012 9:15 AM

I've been thinking about this and times being what they are, why not buy a bike that's actually MADE in America? Not just designed here and stamped out in foreign lands. Intense, Foes, Ellsworth, SWD/Bicycle Fabrications, That new bike from Colorado, ... more »

New thread Got helicopter insurance? 2/29/2012 8:45 AM

There was a lot of talk about how it's irresponsible to ride without health insurance and that's been me for the last fifteen years or so. The only insurance that I do have is CalStar air lift insurance. For all of you clubs and I suppose businesses, ... more »
