Only thing our team did better than Sven's was we picked white frame/black/grey graphic. They wen't grey/black/red. They were faster...we looked faster. Never forget that Sven!

Also, it deserves to be said that Sven is PASSIONATE. He had a cover for Dirt that I made an off hand comment about, just trying to be silly, and he sent me a direct message trying to let me know how valuable he considered the shot and didn't appreciate the disparaging commentary when he was trying to make a living.

Some people might get butthurt or get offended by him responding to my jab, but I appreciated it 100%. I knew right then and there from our conversation that he was a very hard working photog who was taking his job seriously and passionately.

That...and he can make Fraser mad...which I still enjoy. Dammit...you guys didn't even TOUCH on Ridemonkey funk!!!

Neko has an absurd wealth of Sam Hill trivia knowledge if anyone ever wants to challenge him.
You can trip him up with Shaun Palmer & Steve Peat quizzes though

Look pretty off the shelf to me.
But I think we are to that point with bikes overall.

So with the addition of Berrecloth, that might throw off the # of injured riders when all is said and done since he's used to going huge.

I always hate the aftermath of this event. So many injuries.

I didn't take his comment poorly. Plenty of people will always associate tats with criminals. For very long time, it was more true than not. These days tats are more a hobby than anything, but to me I was grew up in a generation of women without them, so I identify with unmarked skin more. My wife and I both regret the single tat we both have (not identical mind you). And I'm of the opinion that the more people tattoo themselves, the less "original" they are....that they're just doing the same thing as everyone else, no matter WHAT the image on them is or means.

All that being said, my generation would say "I wouldn't kick her out of the bed for eatin' crackers."

I'm not much on tats either. Luckily I'm married so this girl doesn't have to worry about kicking me to the curb for it.

Here's a thought. Make that perfect little trail bike somehow affordable for this fella right here obsessed with DW-Link but who still needs to put his kids through college.

I've tried to understand the geometry on their US offerings and I can't understand what the goal is. Really steep head angles on their intermediate and aggressive trail bikes. Am I the only one that things their geometry is oddball for current trends? I just don't know who they're marketing their range to.

If my daughters would still ride, they'd agree about the pink thing. $90 for kids shoes is insane though. The most expensive athletic footwear for kids does not typically exceed $60.

Wooden post might have acted as the crux for the break, but GM's leg whip was the catalyst. A Lot of force generated.
