On second watch, I'm not so sure that was Brendan at 0:30 in the video I linked to. Dang impressive whoever it was.

So impressive. Same feature, same angle, but from a different day. Fast forward to 0:30.

2 out of 5 Vital readers find Maniacc Dblocks' riding style to be responsible, considerate, safe, and obedient of traffic laws (i.e. not-douchey).

The big news from Smith Optics is that they are exiting the motocross market.
For real? That's a surprise. I can't imagine they were doing poorly with that market.

Because that happens sooo often? In my experience, the CS/ST yokes and fork crown will fill with mud long before the shock receives enough to make it more than a little dirty. I see what you are saying, but don't see it as a real threat, and if it is, put a boot over it. Bam, non-real problem solved.

I thought your continuous bets on Bryceland were risky because I expected his results to be inconsistent. Oh how wrong I was.

Brosnan was one I had total faith in at the beginning of the year and he totally delivered. Glad you guys showed the same faith.

Funny comment, but it looks like a number of those guys are bike shop owners testing potential buys and shop dudes. I dig that some are out of their element and open to riding outside their comfort zone.

Alright, I gotcha. Yeah, you're probably right that 97% post on MTBR, but fortunately 97% of MTBR are not that class of rider, despite what it may seem at times, which is the point I was making.

I don't think that's entirely correct. It does represent a typical cross section of outdoor demo participants who have tasted the koolaide and are looking for their first highend steed or want to test-drive a highend bike they've always wanted, but I don't think it represents typical forum folk. There are a surprising amount of legit experts, industry folks, and pros that peruse forums; a much higher number than you might think. Some sit silently and read and some post often, but from experience, I can tell you that this slideshow is in no way an accurate representation of forum folks.

I can see why you thought it was a Rocky; the color schemes between the 2014 Rockies and this 2015 Scott are very similar.

One of my favorite parts to Worlds is seeing all of the one-off colored bikes, helmets, and other painted bits. I've seen what Vital and others have shown but it just seems that this year there is less than previous years. No crazy paint jobs from Specialized, GT...more

Trails that are not designated for motorized vehicles will not allow e-bikes.

I feel for the unlucky souls who buy these things, then think they can actually ride them on multiuse trails. They will be able to ride roads and OHV parks only. The marketing and sales of the bike...more
