Added reply in a thread Should Enduro Be a Riding Type? 12/24/2015 10:33 PM

If Enduro racing didn't exist, and someone thought of it now, it could just as easily be called AM Racing or some other crap. It's a race format. XC - Hardtails and sub 120mm FS. Trail - 120-140mm AM - 140-160mm DH - 180-220mm Two caveats. Hardtails ... more »

I'm sure Curtis helps out with R&D and is great on product launches. Would you want a guy on staff who can do all that and still be top 25 in the world?

Added reply in a thread slack, long-travel, pedal-able 29ers? 11/22/2015 6:02 PM

What about 650b bikes like the Reign and Strive that have longer wheelbases than the E29? Personally I like long travel 29" but if we're talking ultimate speed it won't be long before someone makes some proper 650b+ tires and it'll be game over for 650b ... more »

So if the dig teams are paid and Redbull puts up $300k in prize money, would people take the same or even more risk?

I've done some pointless shit in my life but attending Interbike and riding poorly set-up bikes on crap terrain was one of the worst. Never again.

I gotta say it - I expect much better beer chugging abilities this year. Beer spilling down your face does not count. #collegerules (ha)

Again the cardboard fake protections?
It's time to UCI enforce the rules and stop this crap.
This is the top level of a 40 year old sport,with professional athletes.
I don't want to see this stupidity in the sport I love.
