Bob, welcome back! -Nobody uses toe clips anymore. -Flats means grippy flat pedals. -Trials riders can bunnyhop up a loading dock on flats, it's all how you manipulate the bike. -It's all a matter of what you're comfortable with. In super techy downhills, ... more »

In 5 years, it will be affordable. In 10 years, every bike sold in a bike shop will have it. A little competition from SRAM will help this along in a big way.

Makes sense, couple of beers, and a rowdy crowd, lot of people would do the same if you egged them on.

My neck hurts just watching it, poor bastard.

C50_91455120_1282845350

Agreed, Rampage is due for a new site. If Berrecloth and McCaul like it, then I want to see it. But photographers could climb all over the old site, this looks treacherous for those without magic wheels and/or helicopter. Red Bull knows the money comes from the media, not rider stoke.

Then again, maybe the media will film the whole thing with quadcopters. It's a brave new world MFers.

That problem is related to two bigger problems which are: 1) too many people, and 2) too many litigious people. Even if a great trail is built legally here, buzz gets around and every storm trooper with a Monster Energy tee shirt comes to ride it. Then a storm trooper comes a little short on a gap jump and everybody gets shut out while the attorneys wring the landowner for every dime on their liability policy.

Only problem with California is that about 98.6% of the great trails are illegal ones. (See: Santa Cruz)

Even here in California, where we can ride outdoors year round, I wish we had a Ray's. Rode MKE once and been dreaming of it since.

I thought of the exact same thing, NORBA Nationals. That was the year I showed up without any accommodations, thinking I could crash with Joey. He was like, "yeah, sorry dude, I'm getting laid tonight." So I slept in the back of his truck in the condo parking lot like a hobo. Also, I thought I could just show up and compete in trials, and NORBA was like, "yeah, sorry dude, registration closed like a month ago". Oh, and JJ Gregorovich was there, and I was like, "hey, JJ, what's up man!" and he was like, "yeah, sorry dude, don't talk to me."

All in all, that was an awesome trip.

Or you could just drill your rims and run Schraders, like the North Shore huckin', not give a f##kin', bar draggin' badass that you are.
