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 »

Reply to That Time My Bike Flew Off The Car Rack... 6/17/2016 5:32 PM

Mountain biking is a dangerous sport. Eating can be too.

New thread sketchy flashy 4/8/2016 4:54 PM

Perhaps you guys already know, but when I scrolled down from the Whip Off pictures, I was generally unable to see the comments and only saw some weird flashy, home page shifted sideways craziness. I'm glad I'm not a techy. On a different note... I have ... more »

New thread Mavic bought ENVE 2/27/2016 6:33 PM

It's strange that there's not an article yet, but I just saw on the Dirt Shed Show that Mavic has bought ENVE. Mavic hasn't had a carbon rim option as yet, so they're obviously looking into the possibilities. Discuss.

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 »
