there have been a couple of failed attempts at this in years past. I wish them luck but just don't see myself leaving Shimano with their multi-release cleat, adjustable spring tension and light weight. Pacific has a bunch of brands that might consider ... more »

Woody I think you are headed the right way. 34T on 27.5 would make sense. I'm running a 32T on a 29er and it's fine. Also if you're really worried buy a cheap ring to try or ask your riding buddies to try a ring for a week. Most riders have enough parts

jensonusa.com has been great for stuff that is hard to find at local shops and their sale stuff is crazy cheap. Sale gloves are in every order I've done. Love fresh riding gloves.

Not super picky about how it is looking as long as it's riding well. I go ghetto and put electrical tape around shift to brake cables + the dropper.

shimano 540 the cheap pedal or one of its variations with shimano M56 cleat. this set up is nice. you can set the tension and it'll release when you need it to. very tunable.

I have some skill in this area and would possibly qualify to help. What specifically are you building? Berm, doubles, pump. I tend to like bigger jumps. yes they take a lot of dirt but the control in air is worth it. Six foot lips seem to be really popular ... more »

give it a couple of months. once the snow melts and the dirt clears up I think we'll definitely see an increase in traffic

OK you could get that from the description if you had never worn a full face. Good job Tell me thats not a decent idea... really picture a troylee half head with the addition of the face piece as a bolt on rather than a hard hat with a splash guard. ... more »
