Very cool. That's why BMX tracks are so important to have around the country... well, world. Kids as young as 2 to 5 can race strider class and have the option to start racing 20". You'll see kids with skill equal to Jackson and Finn all over the place that just don't happen to be lucky enough to live near Whistler (lucky kids!!). GROW. THE. SPORT!

Added a product review for Shimano Saint Hydraulic Disc Brake 8/6/2012 2:45 PM

Best Brake I've ever ridden


The Good: Ultimate power, good modulation

The Bad: They are expensive, you have to adjust the lever pull quite a bit as the pads wear


This is by far the best brake that I've ridden. Everything from Whistler bike park to my home trails in the Pacific NW March mud.  I like the original pads it came with - tried the  "quieter" version and they weren't as powerful and my bike doesn't make any noise anyway.  The toughest part is probably getting the calipers lined up perfectly as one side or the other seems to like to extend a little further when you are setting them up.  It's easy to just use a piece of thin cardboard or a (clean) feeler gage to help the other side extend a little more.  Also, much easier to bleed with a syringe and push the fluid up and out instead of that frustrating gravity method they suggest.  Anyway, best brake ever.  The only thing I could complain about is that I had one lever clamp break while I was going down a hill.  Shimano just gave me a new one but wow.  Also, if it had a 2 piece clamp, you could more easily take them off or use them with the new shifters that allow you to connect them to the shifter for a cleaner bar.

You are one lucky guy Brandon - wish I could rail a V-10 with the new Saint up at Whistler!

This was back in 1989. I was just riding along on my bike toward the end of the school year just passing time before I was to fly up and work on a commercial fishing boat in Alaska.. so naturally I decided to race a car. The light turned green, it peeled out and I stood on my pedals. I took off, leading at first (because the car was peeling out as Camaro's do....). Cranking as hard as I possibly could, my chain snapped. I went over the bars instantly, still gripping them. As my hands dragged along the pavement, my face slammed into the sidewalk. I got up and looked at my hands - blood dripping from them. I flexed them, and could see knuckle bone on my left hand. Ouch. The scars are still there after 23 years and if you pull the skin over to the side you can see how it rubbed off on the knuckles.

All it means is that the other companies have to get permission to use MRP's "invention" and pay a fee to do so. The way it should be.

All turns from my trail riding. Sorry, I couldn't keep the wheels on the ground no matter how hard I tried.
