I edit docs as part of my job and the only thing I see is "Season" doesn't need to be capitalized. They even got the punctuation inside the quotations marks. Don't forget to add a space after your periods and capitalize the first word of each sentence, bro

Sweet. Dakine should've been in on the promo for a truck pad! Good Black Keys song.

He likes SoCal better...? Bummed I won't get to see him shred the local shuttle trails.

Nice. Have you guys seen this one: http://wimp.com/bicycleskill/? I can only imagine the painful learning curve on some of those tricks.

What are your thoughts on under shirt vs. chest protector, advantages/disadvantages of one over the other? Is it simply the under shirt is better coverage, but less mobility type of thing? Also, is there a hard plastic bit on the elbow pads, not something ... more »

Surely I'm not the only one who fast forwards through the XC sections... Emily Batty is hot n all, but it doesn't make up for the fact that watching XC is boring. Sorry, Trek.

Lame. I wish we were all on the World Cup course. There're go-arounds for the jumps.

I like my 661's just fine and you can usually find'em a bit cheaper than the other options. And I don't think they look quite as goofy as the Shimano's. I did have to take out some extra rubber around the cleats so they would easily get in and out of ... more »

Of course it's "rider error." But you have to keep this in mind when building gap jumps. Sol Vista is built with a lot of love, but the fact of the matter is the place makes you push yourself. The features are very--er...--progressive. I think many would ... more »

Solid Brakes

Rating:

The Good: Reliable. Good performance. Not expensive.

The Bad: For what they are, none.

Overall: After reading the other dude's review I figured I should give these brakes some props. I've been running them for two seasons now and I've bled the rear once, and haven't had to bleed the front yet. I have them on my downhill bike and they're plenty powerful for me, I don't even run a 203 rotor in the rear. They slow you down well with good modulation and unless you're a newbie who brakes really hard or you're a heavy dude, the power is certainly sufficient. The difference between these brakes and the CR's is not power, but only the pad contact adjuster. Additionally, they have very little fade. I just raced Snowmass, which is a brake scorcher, and they worked just as well at the end of the track as the beginning. My buddies with Hayes were bitching about brake fade. Go to a DH race and see how many people run these brakes and you'll be a believer. However, if you want the most powerful brakes out there, get some Codes. They need to bled significantly more, but you'll have all the stopping power you want..

It's because the damping sucks. I'll let someone else with better articulation explain what that means.
