Reply to Fox 34 or 36 160mm fork on my Stumpy EVO??? 8/25/2014 10:37 AM
Thanks, I keep hearing how good the pikes are these days anyways. I had one back in the day and loved it actually so I'm sure they are twice as good now. I think I might actually just take that 1000 that I would spend on the pike and just put it towards ... more »

is it really that much overkill you think? I mean the revelation on there right now is 35mm stantions and has 150mm of travel, this would only be 10mm more and 1mm more in stantion width...

But the pikes are at least 1000 bucks for a good one. This fox 36 is 650 on clearance, I would very much like a new fork and price seems very doable to me, 1000 for me is pushing it because at that point its almost more worth it to me to put that in ... more »

Fox fox fox!!! I think they are in the middle as far as the price category goes but are among the best when it comes quality. I wasn't sure if you meant XC spandex stuff or baggy stuff but I am talking about the baggy side of things. Also most of the ... more »

I'm curious what you mean about the whole BB drop part? I know that Specialized has super low BB height as one of the defining characteristics but I don't know much about BB drop, could you explain it to me and how it relates to 650B Bikes?

I will FOR SURE see if I can ride them both a few times before I buy, does anyone know if there are places in Vancouver that do this? Where I live currently (and have lived before) there aren't any options to test ride those particular bikes (even if ... more »

Reply to Overpriced MTB products? 7/7/2014 10:40 AM
Tires have gotten pricey lately, I remember getting them for around 50 bucks each (Specialized Butcher DH) and now they are around $70 for the same dam tire lol. Also the new sram one by eleven stuff is far too expensive, good reason to buy shimano (holds ... more »

You also need to train just about every day if you want to ride with the pros (if you don't already). This doesn't mean simply riding every day but you have to do things OFF the bike too. Things like lifting weights, rowing, yoga, road biking, jumps, ... more »

Reply to Could this be a good comparable to an X01 setup? 11/30/2013 9:15 AM
yea that is true and it is hard to replace my 2x10 setup when it works just fine and hasn't failed on me yet just to drop like 300 on parts to switch to something that is unproven and might suck.
