Those soft bottles are great for bike parks too.. Fill it at the bottom, drink it on the lift.. stash the folded down empty in your pocket for the way down..

Agreed, chalk it up as a loss and get some new rubber. If you want to roll the dice and try to patch it, at least put it on the rear (if it's not already). Riding out a rear blowout is one thing but doing the same on the front is a different kind of ... more »

Vail could pull it off easy with the terrain, space for crowds and pits and its close to denver for easy team travel. I do like the idea of the frontside of telluride. That would be wild but theres no room for a finish area if im remembering right... ... more »

I don't know about coolest ever but I just had a good high speed rip down a fairly wide trail with some buddies. All jockeying to be in the lead; laughing and giving each other a hard time. Sometimes it's about the company as much as the trail.

Added reply in a thread How much of each discipline do you ride? 2/23/2016 4:47 PM

I'll play, since I'm nerdy enough to log my rides into a spreadsheet. Over the past 4 years my breakout is 54% DH bike parks/shuttles and 46% trail rides. Plus I'm lucky enough to live close to work and can commute by bike so there's that too.

It's a good question. I would venture to guess that 1) he enjoys being a part of the process and 2) he's in a position to call the shots down to the specifics of his set-up. Not too many other wc riders have that interest or leverage.

A tangent note: It's a bit of a head scratcher at first to have him go with TRP brakes, for example. But these companies are the ones who can gain the most from a high profile athlete repping their stuff. What is Sram going to gain to have him on their stuff? Their gear is proven.

I could see staying on a demo frame except he wouldn't do it for free. A smaller slice sure but Gwin will get sponsors for everything down to the powerlink on his chain if possible. It makes more sense for him to change frames as a company eager to get ... more »

That pump & bottle trick looks cool, as does the new floor pumps with the burst capability. I'll probably go that direction once my trusty pump dies but I'm in no hurry as the nearby gas station has a nice compressor and free air 24/7. Here's a few ... more »
