I've LOVED my POC VPD 2.0 for the last couple years. First pads that stayed in place and don't cause rub. they offer tons of protection too. Whey they finally go, I'm getting more of them.

Am I the only one that thinks these are not even slightly immersive? The quality of 360 video is just so shit at the moment, I cannot wait until they are about 10x better, but until then. I will pass.

That was pretty awesome. Well done. I like the format of 3 fast guys on course, can really see the lines better.

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..

I have a set of WT tires (DHF/DHR2) on some 25mm internal hoops and l like them a lot more than the 2.3s I had.. The WT tires hook up well, even on narrower rims than they're designed for (32-36mm) and they're more stable at higher speeds.. the 2.3s felt drifty.

My '04 Subie WRX loves twisty mountain roads! Anti-sway bars were well worth the dough. tracks like a beast on the twisty road out to Downieville. Shot by my warehouse in Oakland.

hit CB up with a small parts request, they may send some out to you.. Left side, at the bottom. https://www.crankbrothers.com/product-care/

I had the same problem (see above), my toe would hit and couldn't get out. the new spindles help a lot.. The cleats are not all the way back on my VXi clipless, but almost there.. if they were all the way back, they may be right on the edge of releasing or not... sliding the cleat inward, and setting a little bit of a 'duck' stance can also help, to pre-turn the cleat a little by the time your toe is in-line with the frame.

The longer spindles saved them for me.. I could not release because my my cleat is further back.. when the pedals were level, I'd hit a crank arm with my toe before they released.. Even with the cleat's pushed all the way to the center, I was locked in if my toe hit the crank arm... I'm digging the pedals now. the release is a lot smoother feeling than shimano, which is welcome.

I found better traction in tires made for wide rims, even on 'not as wide' rims.. I have 25mm internal enve m70 and got a lot better grip from a 2.5 Wide Trail DHF than the 2.3" DHF.. The WT tires are made for 32-36mm wheels.. But they work better on my 25mm hoops than the 2.3" did.. the 2.3" felt squirrely when leaned over. Was able to drop a little air by going to 2.5" too.

Pop a 2.5 DHF WT and 2.4 DHR2 WT on those wheels and drop your pressures to 22/ 27psi, the'll look massive but you'll have grip for days and won't bounce like a 37psi tire would. Seriously.. it'll be an entirely different experience than what you were running.. those tires aren't made for those wheels..

Hmm.. for a storage tank on the trail, it could be possible to pressurize the down tube, or other parts of the frame... much like the airhog airplanes.. it doesn't weigh much, but could come in handy on the trail. Just fill'er up to 60 PSI for two tires.. ... more »
