Show up here on qualification day and finals day and they'll point you in the right direction.

To paraphrase a recent conversation Vital had with a person high up at a major bike company: DH makes the sport and brand look sexy, Enduro sells bikes. Both are valuable and have their place.

That new Rocky Mountain Maiden DH bike sure would look lonely without a World Cup team...

Why is it that the one I'd screw is the one I'd also like to marry?

http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-us/bikes/model/trance.27.5.3/22206/84046/#overview Nice ride! I'd start out with a shorter stem and wider bars. Next on the list would be a dropper seatpost, and possibly a meatier front tire. Consider converting it over ... more »

I think you have 27.5 and 27.5+ confused. 27.5+ (also referred to as 27+) uses a huge tire. Some people refer to them as semi-fat bikes.
Reply to Anyone riding 27.5+ at Rampage? 8/17/2015 9:17 AM
We've heard rumors. Consider this though - when was the last time you saw someone flicking around/tricking a 29er? In addition, the larger tires seem far less stable on fast lips and big landings. But, if your line involved blasting straight down the ... more »

Dave Camp blew by me like I was standing still today. Get some, buddy! Agreed that Day 2 (Stages 3/4) will crush some riders. BIG, steep climbs. Plus long, physical race runs. Ouch. All the hike-a-bike sections are what did me in during practice. Pretty ... more »

Today's "unofficial" practice was indeed a free for all. Some riders/teams went so far as to find creative back 4x4 roads to get them nearer to the tops of trails, and others crossed streams in their vehicles and motored up what will be pedal powered ... more »

Shawn will be at MSA on a proper DH bike (hint hint). He'll crush it. One of the most dialed riders I've ever met, and only getting better with age and experience.

Interesting choice, going from moto to XC... Having experienced both, and the full spectrum in-between, my honest suggestion would be to kick the XC bike and purchase yourself a nice trail/all-mountain bike - something with a bit more travel (140-150mm),
