Is that old Canon still metering in B+W? Hopefully you're correcting the lateral color fringes in PS since the camera can't do it for you!

I'm from SoCal. How many WC racers from Europe do I see training here, lots. Aaron and Sam Hill don't seem to have a problem riding the much. Riding in the dry isn't that different from riding in the rain. It is loose no matter.

What makes it a 'World Cup' is the riders not where the races take place. The riders are from all over the world. Well, really the industrialized world but you get what I mean.

What is the big deal about using a front derailleur? Here in SoCal you need a granny since lots of the climbs are so steep. I've been running a Gamut dual ring guide for years without a problem. Sure beats the hell out of walking up the steep climbs. ... more »

I did this on my 2006 Devinci Wilson 3 years ago. Funny Dirt considers this to be an innovation.

I've been rocking a set of Havocs for 6+ months. At 6'5" 220 I was a bit worried how they would hold up. With single Maxxis tires set-up tubeless they have been perfect. Including a few cased jump that ended with a thud. Still perfectly round and true. Setting them up tubeless was easy even with non-UST tires.

The QR rear is easily convertible to a 10mm thru bolt but boring out the end caps. 10mm thru bolt goes right in.

Brand new 5.5" travel prototype AM frame for sale. I brought this back with me from Taiwan with the intention of building it up for my wife. She doesn't like the idea of a full suspension bike. So it is up for sale. Frame has 5.5" of travel and pedals

Hopefully the bike is faster than the F1 team it is modeled after!

Awesome Tires!

Rating:

The Good: Great is loose soil. When cornering once you hit the 'edge' they hold awesome! Great UST tires.

The Bad: Keep blowing them! Damn tires punctured right in the middle of the tread. Supposedly this has been fixed.

Overall: If they weren't $70 I'd be running these things everywhere. They work great as UST tires.

Selling a super rare 2007 Devinci Wilson downhill frame. I bought it brand new in April of 2008 from a shop in Quebec. There are maybe 5 of these in the United States. Every place I ride I have people asking me about. Ridemonkey Ad http://www.ridemonkey.com/classifieds/cat-2/ad-13661/
