Ride the brown pow!

Nice to have an edit of mere-mortal type riding, complete with "almost died. Whoooooo!" at the end. I can relate!

Whoa, 419 in the rear for a dual short link bike is very impressive!

Added reply in a thread Do you use climbing-specific suspension features like lock-out? 1/12/2015 3:07 PM

Always, but sometimes fiddling the switch between the legs is cumbersome. I almost never use an "in-between" setting as it tends be be less good at down and less good at up equalling overall less good. I need my suspension to be consistent so I can count ... more ยป

OUT - Skids if you don't dig. Berms are for railin, not your lame un skilled berm blowing non action action shot. Wanna roost a berm, hit it harder faster without a fist full of rear brakes.
IN - Gearboxes, fuck yeah.
Non perishable bikes, components and designs. few hundred grams won't kill you...more

I believe Specialized and another company are starting to make tires based on wider rims. But then also, the tire still deforms on the ground, the tire print on the ground is still flat like it was with thinner rims, just the angle casing is a bit wider. How the tire looks on top of the wheel has little to do with what the tire is actually doing on the ground.

Nice! Street riding in SF truly unique. Bonus for singletrack nuggets.

Yeah I bet there's a fair bit of that going on too. Having said that though no one can deny that both Curtis and Mitch rip on the different wheel sizes...unless of course the videos are fake

So the team of 2 runs the two different wheelsize options that consumers can buy...?

That old commentary was like watching the race with the buds after a great ride. It had flavor! And it was authentic and genuine. You could feel the tension, and connect with it.

The racers are racing on the edge of disaster, and the screaming and yelling payed homage to those risks.

I've never been a fan of a commentator before.

What a great place. I took my kid there and I had to pull him away hours later. A friendly and encouraging group of riders. Thanks to all that have worked to make that place happen. Sad to see it go, but thankful for it being there. P

Did you read my full comment? Most e-bikes will look like this in 10 years - almost no different looking than what we ride. Bike technology is advancing at a stupid-fast pace.

This is an interesting point on the e-bike riders over their head much deeper into the trail, I hadn't thought of that. Current trail system design has the advanced trails deeper in the system to help filter out the less skilled riders - for their own safety and as a selling point to the land managers for more well designed trails (= less exposure to litigation).
