I dug through some of the forum pages briefly and found this dead thread - http://www.vitalmtb.com/forums/The-Hub,2/Mtbs-are-overpriced,8653 - but it went down the moto comparison route too quickly. Recently went on a ride with an ex entry level employee ... more »

Like only the Syndicate can. So stoked for this team! And to see Peaty and Rat Boy in there, with Kathy crushing the bubbly. Bring it!

Everything that has already been said, and pop those reflectors off the wheels too. Enjoy the new whip!

Space shuttle exploding: The space themed kit from Troy, and Spec doesn't want to commit budget to a single factory WC rider when they already have Gravity Republic, enough exposure in DH and keeps the Enduro budget. French Fries and curry powder: American ... more »

Zero participation in the meeting. There is a very good reason for that, NO ONE rides the trails except for the people who Strava'd it and helped to get the rich ass local hikers and equestrians to them shut down. And Dirty Booger is right too, those ... more »

45 mins to Santa Cruz, 7 mins to Carlmont, 20 mins to Skeggs. Prefer Santa Cruz, so up and over 17 every weekend. Worth it. Spring/summer weekday rides post work are great at Skeggs.

Complete bike, I think I lead this thread down a rat hole by leading with that comment. I barely know the guy, friend of friend that I met once on a ride. I don't know any specifics about the entire setup, i.e. where the frame started its life, etc. ... more »

Didn't mean to focus the post on the dude who got an awesome complete bike for cheap as chips, but that was what got me thinking. Especially since I was just starting to get myself comfortable with throwing down retail for a new whip... Valid points ... more »

Relax into lips of jumps, drops and entrances to berms. Visualize. Always have cold beer and chips and salsa in the cooler waiting after a ride.

Would have been awesome if we cut out 150 posts prior to this one and then opened the thread to actual team news. Hopefully Laurie steps up Hart's game this year, good to see them on Fox and Maxxis. I always liked the look of this bike, looks mean as ... more »

Kiwi boys stepping it up in 2016, Wyn and Sam. This is so good for the sport and exactly what I want to see develop over the years. The scheduling is essential to get this type of overlap and glad Ball is the visionary that he is to consider the logic ... more »

Blinky on the new SC enduro team? Edit: damn, you gotta admit that looks more like Blinky than Gwin. Thought those stickers and back of jersey were just Bell for bell helmets.

I ride a 2012 NomadC with 36s up front. It is an amazing bike, can take it on big pedal days and shuttle with it. I have recently demo'ed the new 5010 and the SB5C. It is amazing what these bikes can do. Both are lively, pedal really well, and bomb almost ... more »
