Beer, tires and tools. In that order.
Wait for the 29er to explode when someone over 150lbs finally tries to ride one fast.
Man I hate this shit. Lourdes comes in says "hey remember awesomeness?", blows up my brain, then WC mountain biking disappears for months. You cruel whore! I have feelings too! Cairns doesn't count. That track needs to fuck off to 1812 where it came ... more »
That would definintely be cool. Very very Very Cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaS5iZbSxU8&feature=youtu.be
Just more dumb shit that surly will come up with in a drunken rage that three years later specialized jumps on as 'the hawt new thing' and every dickbag with a 3 figure salary and two days a week of ride time will buy in spades. In the meantime tires ... more »
I want to change my answer. What ^He^ said.
Pssh. No advice to give. I've been pretty awesome this whole time. Okay maybe drop the body armor.
If his presence would spawn more animated gifs that awesome, I hope he resurfaces.

My favorite is the swat bib! What's yours? 2016 will be interesting. But not because of endurpadurp.

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