That's actually an old pic. They had about 12 bikes all lined up in the corners. I can't find it for the life of me. Definitely the sickest display of legendary hardware I have seen.

That corner was showcasing all of the Syndicate's race V10s over the years. Assuming those bikes are going back to their owners (Doug) and they are updating the pics on the walls. Not huge news but interested to see what's going on those walls next!

Demoing the new Bronson next weekend to see if it rallies as quick as the SB5C. If I love it, I may pull the trigger but my 2012 Nomad is still so much fun I will need to really love that Bronson to step up to that amount of scratch...

Gnarly. Hopefully he fully recovers from that. You can also get paralyzed, maimed, and die from mtn biking as well. I definitely respect the gravity, rocks and trees a bit more after crashes that I can walk away from. Lots of people aren't so lucky, ... more »

Haven't really come across many people with the vertigo. It is fine now but it was totally shit. Especially since that 5 days was spent at the rental house in Santa Cruz for vacation where I planned on riding every day. I go to a DO, Dr. of Osteopathy, ... more »

Ruptured AC - Level 5 in 2005 at Mini Dream Track in Queenstown, that's the biggest time off injury I have had, 6 months full recovery, sore shoulder, no surgery. 95% functionality now. I went to the Orthopedic Surgeon for the All Blacks when that happened, ... more »

I really hope he races World Cups as well.

Bell helmets announcement shows a couple changes to some teams. Looks like Bergamont only has Masters returning on the men's side, added Max Warshawsky and Rupert Chapman. And Slavin no longer riding for Kona, looks like he is on Devinici. Been a Kona ... more »

Reply to Do you use climbing-specific suspension features like lock-out? 1/12/2015 10:58 AM

I use all 3 features on my Float X, Climb, Trail, Descend on every ride. I also drop my Talas on climbs, every ride. 2012 Nomad C with 2015 Fox goods, the suspension features change the bike significantly when climbing.

Any more pics or insight into the new V10?

1X10 has changed my life. I don't know how I will go back to a 2x. Also, the underside remote mount for the reverb is pretty slick. I don't quite understand the need for remote changing of CTD settings. I haven't ever really found the need for high speed ... more »

Had the Xen, crushed the back of it from an off on a double, now I have the Feature. I love it, lightweight, affordable, simple design, and tons of coverage.

Flats on the trail bike ever since I sold the DH bike and bought something I could pedal all day. Rode with skate shoes for too long before I found the 5.10s. Now I am fully convinced that I do not want to get clips.
