Reply to How do you guys store your bikes? 11/16/2015 7:43 PM

I own shimano brakes on all of mine so I try to store them anyway possible that's not straight up. That way when I roll out into the street and realize my brakes need to be pumped 20 times before they work, it makes it a lot more exciting in traffic. ... more »

"say?" What does one "say?" to people racing(sic) uphill on e-bikes? Nothing a super soaker and balloons with salt water couldn't say better.

It's like riding on a year's worth of farts.

Reply to 26" Wheel on a 27.5 Bike? 10/20/2015 7:28 AM

Is this on a 6" or less travel trail bike? If so you should be fine. I wouldn't do it on a dh bike at 13.8. People talk about individual bikes and whether those bikes give them "pedal strikes™" as if it's the bike doing everything. Just use your eyes ... more »

Reply to 26" Wheel on a 27.5 Bike? 10/20/2015 7:15 AM

I've done it with two different bikes, including the trail bike I'm currently riding. With the same 27.5 fork or a 26" fork with a 10mm higher axle to crown, you'll drop about half an inch. With a 26" fork, you'll drop about 0.7" Depends on the frame ... more »

Tits If we're dreaming here, it's going to have tits. So probably something made in france.

It means ropo won't be wasting his talent flying all over the world to pedal up dirt roads just because specialized wants to sell trail bikes.

What's up with the removal of expected ship dates? Is this a 2016 model replacement thing? Are the bikes that are already sold out done for good?

You think if I twist your back and then we go get on some carnival rides, we could get those symptoms to return? I've never seen you puke. Let's have some fun!

Meh. Still just mountain biking injuries.

Reply to do you flip your bike upside down to put on your front wheel? 6/5/2015 8:25 PM

I only do it to other people's bikes once I find out they're princesses about their little precious grips or whatever. And that's only because punching them in the face is illegal.

Reply to What rims? Dj 6/2/2015 1:29 PM

I've had so many pairs of mavics (with wheelsets still going 10 years deep) that I even know the insanely easy fix for that little bead rattle they sometimes to. And I always come back to them because everything else I've run on my dirtjumpers I've mangled....including ... more »

Reply to What rims? Dj 6/2/2015 11:47 AM

Yeah ghetto pinned rims are 'better than' welded seams. Better for splitting maybe. Those rims are fine but they most certainly do not have stronger seams.

Reply to What rims? Dj 5/30/2015 8:16 PM

Mavic 721s built up with straight gauge 2.0 spokes. None stronger. They're not the lightest but you'll be landing sideways from 15ft in the air before you kill them.

Aside from the larger seal surface area, what in god's name are you talking about? If a fox fork is 'sticky' it's because the seal are dry, jut like any fork from rockshox or marzocchi or whomever. Those 2008-2013 boxxers were some of the worst suspension ... more »

If you call/email him, I'm sure he'd make some for you. I still had to do a tiny bit of filing on one of the apdapters (so he needs to change one measurement) but I think this was the main reason he wanted to check it maybe sell some kits ... more »
