Besides the obvious (less clearance) is anyone making 178.5 or 180mm mountain bike cranks? There are a number of ways to figure out what size cranks to run (formulas using inseam etc) - all of which point to us taller guys running 180mm+ cranks. Again, ... more »

My thought is we're only talking about 2.5 or 5mm. Which is at most 0.20 of an inch. The consequences of these longer cranks would be akin to lowering my bottom bracket 0.20". Something I know I could get away with. If it makes more sense "biodynamically" ... more »

Couple of thoughts... 1) Wouldn't a rim take more PSI (pounds per square inch) in normal riding situations than a static 80psi would place on it? Smashing wheels through burly terrain has to load the wheel more than any tire no? Just guessing... 2) Ryan ... more »

They just sucked in the gnar cause you were clapping them more or something else?

Just fwiw I am guessing those tire pressure ratings have more to do with "safe pressure to ride the tire" than anything. EG - tire is less likely to hold onto the rim, not that the rim will catastrphically fail. I'll bring a real engineer type in here ... more »

Make sure you throw it on a rim that is north of 30mm too. This could mitigate much of the squirming... I think the ticket for the system will be a 35-40mm internal width. Just my guess. EDIT: Just going back to a 25mm rim - which is quiet common on ... more »

New thread New way to cover DH racing? 6/4/2015 1:28 PM
I don't know about anyone else but I'm pretty pumped to watch some Fort Bill DH racing. I know my idea may be far fetched, but how cool would it be if there was coverage of practice much in the same way you can watch golf coverage? (selecting a hole/camera/group). ... more »

Yup. Most sleds are 15" these days with 16" being utilized by one of the companies. As far as length - yeah, that's an even bigger arguement. 154-174 are all being utilized in the m tns.

Woo - you may be right for now. I do think there is a future here. Imagine something built from the ground up by Doo/Poo/Cat/Yammy for snow? 2 stroke 500 w/a turbo and a 140" 13" track...

Ha...Can you make Butterman do the math so I can learn how far of a free fall that is...ignoring the coefficient of friction of course.

Mike, no disrespect was intended. You have illustrated our confusion perfectly. Both Angelfire, NM and Winter Park, CO have well built trails that are well over 1000 vertical feet (actually, 2000 vertical feet). Jackson's bike park, although a great ... more »

As a Jackson resident we can genuinely say "we're confused". We have a bike park but its all of 300 vertical feet. Maybe less. There is awesome stuff on the pass for an event like this but no way would the Forest Service allow it nor would the trails ... more »
