I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It...more

Really enjoyed the podcast. Had either forgotten or didn't know just how deep Martin's background went with bike suspension. I like a lot of what he had to say about the brand and perspective on the bike industry. Really looking forward to see what DVO...more

Great interview. Finally, someone else talking about the massive waste incurred with all this knee-jerk standards changing every 18 months.

Is that a foldable helmet in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

The tube works with a finish line grease gun too, it's great for controlled application. also useful for squirting it down shift housings, which is probably my favorite use of this grease.

As much as I love Sam Hill, I can't help but feel flatpedalthunder is stealing a little bit of the glory from what is one of the most incredible wins of the year in all of cycling. 95+ seconds over second place?! This isn't some local event! Its the top level of the sport and...more

Yup, missed it. there be words hiding under them pretty pictures!

Personally I'd rather see a bigger spread than the first place winner taking half the purse but maybe this is normal? Good on them for bumping it up though!

Good news. I think each of these changes is a step forward. The occasional wood feature didn't bug me too much but it's good to see them find a fresh zone and not have wood features this time.

The one thing not addressed here but I'll be curious to see is if they do anything to better compensate the riders and their crews this year.

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 »
