God damn that was vicious... glad he's all good and kinda weirded out by the couple of Chinese "fans" who were yelling the organizers are murderers and that Kelly broke both arms when he clearly didn't. A strange event all around and probably one of the gnarliest. They should open up...more

Tapered only dirt jump fork, just genius. I will never understand why Fox refuses to slap 831 stickers on the 36 Float. It's the Fox fork everyone in this game prefers, it's insanely strong and stiff, and it's not tapered.

Added a product review for Deity Streetsweeper Frame 5/7/2013 11:00 AM

Solid ass frame.


The Good: Strong, stiff, nice neutral geometry, head treated and ED coated, lifetime warranty

The Bad: Heavier than some NS frames


I've had frames from Specialized, Snafu, Black Market, and NS, and my friends have owned most every other brand. This one is far and away the strongest and stiffest I've ever had - only frame to last over a year. The lifetime warranty inspires a ton of confidence. It's a huge bargain considering the features it has, with post-weld heat treating and ED coating, the directly comparable frame is the NS Majesty (which I cracked in 9 months), which retails for over $100 more and has a much shorter (one year vs. lifetime) warranty.

The geometry is fairly neutral, with shortish stays, a roomy TT, and no BB rise. It's still incredibly easy to move around and if you're tall like me, the front end is the perfect length. If your ideal street ride is all about flickability and twitchiness, you'd certainly be better served with an NS Capital, however if you go fast or big, the stability the Streetsweeper brings to the table is essential.

Since I've owned mine several of my friends have since switched over as well.

Seems as though the Trailking has outlasted Atomlab.

I swear I picked the worst time to buy my Sensus grips. Came with stock ODI bar ends, and no sticker.

Or, because it's a downhill bike, you can ditch all the unnecessary gears, and pull off the last 3 gears on an 9sp 11-32 SLX cassette. This gives you an 11-21 6sd cassette. All the gears you'd ever need, without having to double shift because all your transitions...more

Sad that Cannondale has dropped his signature frame and left him with a frame he has to chop up. Just not right. He's a LEGEND.

Added a product review for Snafu Towatay Stem 4/30/2011 10:38 PM

Best stem out.


The Good: Rounded back for knee pleasure, deep sensibly sized hardware. Drop/rise. Low stack height. Looks fantastic. Very good weight (188g). DOES NOT SLIP.

The Bad: Faceplate looks a little goofy. Two tiny cracks have formed in the faceplate after a year of pro-level abuse and hucking to flat.

Overall: Fantastic stem. It is an injustice that people recommend Straitline stems and not this overlooked beauty. Honestly the best stem out, as far as I'm concerned. My Straitline SSC just sits in my basement now.
