it sucks when weather decides the race. i find it hard to believe given the huge cost to the teams and sponsors of putting on this event it's better to run the main or allow it to finish in insane weather. run it earlier if weather is looking crazy or push it back a few hours. it's not like the stream is live anyway. with seven races there aren't any to waste.

i love watching dh. i think racing is rad. i even own a carbon dh bike. i seriously hate this outcome and how everyone is like 'well it's racing'. it's the world cup!! there need to be contingencies for weather interfering in the race. everybody races dry or everyone races wet, it can't be split. it invalidates the result and weakens the sport

I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It...more

$200 is a very good price from your shop. i've never even seen the kits for less than $200. i got a good deal on the charger kit for my boxxer and it was $275 (my lbs wanted $370 without install)

sick bike!

comment about the suspension. the yari looks like a great fork except for the motion control. i've had a couple forks with motion control and i hate it. such a crap damping system. i've either sold them or swapped for the charger. it'd be great if rockshox replaced it with a different low cost (relative to the charger) alternative

if this is middle of the road -- which products do you view as better? i'm definitely buying if not this than a competitor for my dh bike and if you could give a ranked list that would be rad

yea can you believe they didn't get every flat pedal made from every manufacturer? it's almost like they tried to get a sensible subset of the market to let us know their thoughts and comparisons. this clearly shows they don't care about american manufacturing.

kind of crazy how good he is on a 20. MTB is lucky to have this guy.

I'd like to see rogatkin do a boosted lookback on a hip like that (without practicing into foam first), after all, he is the BMXer, no?

The similarities to a car or go-cart throttle begin and end with the fact you use your feet. It requires you to pedal, a car and go cart require you to simply push down with your foot. I see a world of difference between those two things. Also, it has less than 1hp at peak power; this is an assist not a machine that can drive itself.

Yeah, I love the level of bitching about "no 26." You know what a 27.5 fork feels like? It feels like a 26" fork that's one headset spacer taller.

Totally dude, it raises your BB 3mm and slackens your HA by 1/3 of a degree. You're totally going to feel that.
