Not always. Depends on how bad the tear is. Plus hes a professional athlete. Look at someone like Lindsey Vonn. She tore her ACL back in Mid February and is expected to be ready to start skiing Olympic Qualifiers late this fall.

I dunno, I rode Freedom of Speech or something like that for the first time this year. It'll get you ready for Hot Wheels for sure.

A pretty damn historic one. Think of the bikes they raced on it back in the day and how long they've come along since then.

Dont' get me wrong, Steve's a great guy and I wish him the best. I'm stoked on his progress and want to see him win. But I feel that he owed it to Dave Weagle and everyone at Devinci, and the world of Downhill at large for that matter, to see the experiment through....more

"get yourself up to Trestle Bike Park to experience it yourself!" We did...and Hot Wheels wasn't open yet. 8 hour drive to see it still roped off was a bit of a buzz kill.

Nice job Trestle!!!!!!!! I personally will drive 7 hours just to ride hot wheels. I've been to every bike park in north America. EVERY ONE that's is worth riding. Highland, whistler, silverstar . That's just to name a few , and the three parks just mentioned all have PRO ONLY...more

it sends a pretty clear message about the intentions of the park going forward. I wouldn't call it "progressive" by any means - this trail isn't progressive, it is a massive step up from anything at Trestle right now. What are you going to ride at Trestle right now to get yourself...more

To the people who will actually ride this trail sorry for the delay, but they will understand once they ride it. For us to open our first "Pro Line" labeled trail and it not to be completely dialed is a great way of ensuring us of never getting the chance to build another....more

I'm sure there will be an A Line version out soon. Those crazy kids are probably taking their brakes off right now.

Copying actually stifles innovation in the long run, and in your proposed model shifts the balance of power to those already at the top (Giant, Trek, Specialized, etc... anyone with the capacity to copy and produce on a large scale at low cost and with substantial marketing force).

Patent trolling? The man owns the patents and is defending himself against what he feels is theft from the largest bike company in the world. Good for him.

The lawsuit is an interesting read. Especially the timeline of events. Comparing the 2 designs (Maestro and DW link) I think most of us would agree they don't feel exactly alike. As much as I love the way Maestro rides, it seems like Dave is in the right to get what he wants.
Some good reading...more
