I was just wondering if people on here would ever want to do a "Rate your local bike shop" feature or section on the website?? Just another way for consumers to get access to first hand consumer reviews on the bike shops in their town(s). I know I would ... more »

There isn't one bike that will do it all even though it is getting closer the more bikes evolve these days. What kind of racing do you do? Enduro bikes are very capable but don't climb as well, Trail bikes climb better but dont descend as well, etc. ... more »

Reply to Specialized Stumpy EVO comp or Giant Reign 1?? 3/23/2013 5:46 PM
Thanks, I'm really starting to favor the Stumpy now anyways. The only thing I have left to decide is what size to get, I'm 5'11" with a 33inch inseam and I am going to put on a super short Holzfeller DH stem once I get it. Think I should go with the ... more »

Reply to looking forvs good freeride/all mountain bike 3/2/2013 7:14 AM
I like my Cannondale Claymore a lot. Its a little bit more on the Freeride side of the spectrum but it is very adjustable with a rear shock that can go from 110mm to 180mm and a front shock that can go from 140mm to 180mm and both are only a switch flip ... more »

Get something used, like a Specialized Demo, Giant Glory or Intense M9 then you can upgrade as needed. $1750 won't get you anything new that is worth while.
Reply to CCDB air vs Vivid air vs BOS Void 1/30/2013 4:13 PM
I haven't ridden any of them but I hear the Vivid air is one of the best for DH riding and is also the one that has been out for the longest time so they have had longer to work out all the kinks and make any improvements that were needed. All you need ... more »

Make sure to see how much riding time the suspension has had on it and what (if any) rebuilds have been done to it, if you get if off him and then have to put $350 into it on the suspension it would be a hit to your pocketbook. Otherwise its a pretty ... more »
