Is the pump track gone as well? My kids loved it.

It seems the UCI is being stupid rigid and inflexible, but who can make a judgement without seeing the jerseys. Nuts to bounce a team for jersey design. P

Those pads look great, and I am digging the pad customization. Lightweight pads have come a long ways.

That said, I wonder about length of the pad and the containing sock of all of these style light pads. The pad length is down the shin, almost like a shin guard, but not far enough to protect a pedal strike, and a crash is unlikely on the shin.

In addition, the "sock" extends from upper quads to mid calf, like a leg warmer, and as light and breathable as this material is, it still behaves as a leg warmer. Warm on hot days.

Having owned multiple sets of "light" knee pads, including shorter versions, I'm trying to understand the reason for the length. Shorter versions have worked just as well.

Otherwise, pads like these work great, and help me get up laughing when I go down. I wear them all the time and love em.

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

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.
