- Bike Checks
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 »
Nice little summary of what has gone down thus far over on dirt http://dirtmountainbike.com/racing-events/movers-shakers-downhill-racer-team-changes.html#D0DV1PG4PgTP4ojZ.97 Gwin on...
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 »
Okay, Ski/MTB/Audi convo should get onto a new thread. Mark Scott mentioned the Santa Cruz enduro dream team. Anyone know if this is a new team or existing Nomad riders?
Howdy, Hittheshowers13 here. Good game out there, way to leave it all out on the field, hit the showers. Always loved two wheels from the moment I ditched training wheels at 4. Worked two summers ages 11 and 12 mowing lawns in Cape Cod to buy my first
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 »
