Good point. I actually love his image more than most, and I like how he treats the sport like its something to be respected, worked hard at, and taken seriously.

So yeah, sometimes I just want to complain I guess

When I heard that, I was like: "I can totally get behind that"...because nothing I saw ever comes out right without needing backstory or an in depth explanation of the thought process that led to my response. Ask Turman and Spomer...damn did I start shlt!

Added a comment about product review Does It Really Prevent Pinch Flats? Vital Tests the Flat Tire Defender 3/18/2017 9:08 AM

Any notes from flat tire defender or from your tests on how long they could last under enduro type riding? Considering how much they are and how hard they are to put on, I hope they could last at least three months for someone who rides once a week. Since competition is heating up in this product segment (cush core, ect) I think the differentiator will be which product will last the longest, not whose is the lightest.

Having a narrow-wide chain might be good enough to minimize the compression needed for the clutch in today's derailleurs. Which for most bikes would increase the small bump sensitivity.

Totally dig the podcast, the super in depth test session reviews, and interviews like this one. Glad Vital is publishing long form content. Vital is really upping their game compared to other mtb media

Gwin broke a bunch of spokes at the last race. The difference in drive/non-drive spoke tension and the extreme spoke angles might not be working together so well. You don't see broken spokes at a world cup often. E*thirteen needs to crank up the forces on their wheel tests.

I took a screen shot recently off Gwin's instagram. The shadow of the front triangle looks exactly like a V10. No way that's a YT. I'm confidently predicting Santa

I want to know more about his tire/tube/rims setup. There are two valves on each rim. I guess he's running a combination of tubeless tires and rims with tubes still in there. I'm guessing the combination prevents pinch flats. Totally unsure on the psi combination and which do you inflate first
