Reply to To heck with snow bikes 1/1/2015 9:48 AM

Kidwoo, you have more of a chance of getting me on one of those snow kits than you do a snowmobile. Looks rad. You make a line to the top for me with your sled.

Reply to Northstar area rentals 6/3/2014 9:13 AM

You should go to The Backcountry, it is in Truckee, and they have Scott Gamblers and I believe Intense rental bikes for Northstar. One of the only shops I've seen with really good rental stuff. Just don't hit your head on a kayak walking in the door. ... more »

Reply to minnaar's sew up maxxis DH tires 5/4/2012 4:36 PM

Tubular makes perfect sense for DH. No thorn flats to really worry about, which is a downfall of tubular tires, no tubeless goop, which is a downfall of regular tubeless. No burping, which is why I won't run tubeless. Same pressure, same casing, just ... more »

Reply to Were You Guilty Of It: Big Seats 4/11/2011 7:18 AM

I had an SDG Big Boy saddle, it was on my Mountain Cycle San Andreas frame, with White Brothers DC110 fork. 24 inch wheels with 2.7 Intense tires, Hope brakes that you had to adjust by hand. Those titanium bars with a shim in the clamp area, fat squishy ... more »

If anyone sees him, ask Curtis Keene, he knows ALL the food stops.

Reply to Sea Otter DH Changes 3/17/2011 1:39 PM

There is a lot of maintenance going on, but that is not the only goal. In the past, SOC has put up some $$$ to get the course ready to ride every year. With this project, the SOC should require less maintenance in later years, so if there is a budget ... more »

I've been on the Vivid Air since July and I'm a big fan. I've written about my setup on it, that might go up here in a bit...

I'm in Santa Monica. Going to Simi Valley today. Where are you? Lets ride.

Reply to Inverted boxxer? 12/7/2010 9:51 AM

Too bad you think it is a copy because it is upside down. That 'boxxers' had a different axle, legs, sliders and crown, damping, but you know, it is a copy.

Reply to Anyone ride the cemetery jumps? 12/7/2010 9:46 AM

Where would those be found? I'd be down for some maintenance/construction.

Reply to National Champs rumors 11/15/2010 10:13 AM

I'm of the opinion that it just has to be a fun race. If it is short, fine. If it is longer, great. It just needs to be fun for everyone attending. It DOES NOT have to resemble Champery. I don't know if anything in the US does other than the backside ... more »

Reply to Spring help 9/18/2010 7:54 PM

The first number is the length of the shock when not compressed, and the second number is the amount it can be compressed. Example, the shock will be six inches long when fully compressed. Get the same size/stroke spring if you currently have the proper ... more »

He might have been young, but he still must have been like seven feet tall.

Ronning won? Sharples must have crashed, Benjamin Cory too...

New thread Sea Otter DH Is A Joke 4/18/2010 8:54 PM

Now I'm not hating on this just to hate. I want to get a few things out of the way before I go off on a rant. Just so you know who this is coming from, I race pro DH and slalom, had an awesome run today and ended up in the middle of the pack. No regrets, ... more »

That is sweet, looks like a lot of cool stuff. I'm a little surprised that you have to pay $99 for the afternoon clinic. It would be awesome to go and help out just for the sake of helping out. I figure if leelikesbikes was good enough, he would donate ... more »

It is open on Friday as well.

Reply to TOP 5 MTB PEDALS OUT NOW (???) 3/2/2010 9:48 PM

Burgtec, why use disposable stuff? 3 year warranty on body and axle... I don't know of any other pedals that have that.

Reply to Rock shox Boxxer WC/Team 2010 3/2/2010 7:23 AM

I've spend time on old WC and the new one, and contrary to what dh-kevin-dh says, I prefer the feel of the air, but the new one (2010). I feels progressive like a coil, surprisingly so. Smartiboo's question: Yes, you can tune the different rebound circuits ... more »

Reply to Die Trend, Die. 2/19/2010 10:56 AM

Things that need to die: People who think 29ers are cool. Really? Those bikes are only good for people who have stopped progressing and pushing themselves and want something different. A 29er is always some d-bag's fourth bike anyway, or they are just ... more »
