Reply to The Battle Of Axle Standards! 4/4/2015 6:52 PM

I'm definitely not a fat biker and I know it's not feasible to have the same standards between fast bikes and fat bikes. Which is exactly why screwing with solid, proven and available standards just so they're compatible with plus sized bullshit deserves ... more »

As an avid fat bike enthusiast, I can tell you that merely tossing aside the concerns for these engineering masterpieces is only selling the cycling world short. We need every dumb piece of crap marketed to us because we've already made it obvious we're ... more »

Reply to what color is this bike? 2/27/2015 4:27 PM

You internet too much. Coming from me, that's probably pretty insulting. I've got a BETD chainstay, a Risse seatstay, and the swing link off a first gen enduro to lower the BB. I used to dirtjump on that thing. Yours looks terrifying. In a good way. ... more »

It changes colors once you're on it. Neither purple nor green. "cosmic" bro. Cosmic. I own one. Jealous?

Mavic 721s are my go-to. I bent or broke everything else I ever tried.

Reply to To heck with snow bikes 12/31/2014 7:29 PM

I've seen a few of those kits in the winter time. Notice how all the clips are downhill. Most of what I've noticed is that they're really hard to move around as well as a snowmobile. A 450 4 stroke has just over a quarter of the horsepower as a normal ... more »

You're missing spomes' point. That was about as real as that bear chase video.

Reply to Do you think a World Cup DH career debut like Gwin's is possible anymore? 12/30/2014 9:54 PM

It's possible. But as Gwinn showed, it starts with jesus. And ping pong. Jesus and ping pong. Moto and bmx are cool and all but mastery of jesus and ping pong go a lot farther than people realize.

Reply to Cool article on Santa Cruz and how they get graphics and paint schemes dialed 11/6/2014 8:30 AM

What program did they use to determine that everyone wants only 27.5 wheels now?

What kind of plastic is it? Can I load it with sulfuric acid?

Reply to SUICIDE NO HANDER HELP 7/31/2014 9:40 PM

Oh those only work on tuesdays. You're screwed. Just do a bunch of straight airs and practice pinching your seat with your knees. Do a bunch of those until it feels really solid. Then just start releasing your hands and pulling them further and further ... more »

I had fun at keystone and vail. Sol vista was fun back when the right people were running it. That trail listing is pathetic. Are they abandoning the dh crowd as a business decision?

Reply to What makes a good trail? 6/17/2014 8:02 PM

Mostly just keeping IMBA the fuck away from it. Those cases tend to work out better for all of the above.

Sam Hill motherf#cker

Hey more pivots than a Knolly! That really IS a pretty significant accomplishment. Nice work!

Reply to Who would win? Sam Hill vs Nico Vouilloz in their prime 5/22/2014 7:34 PM

The answer is "Sam Hill motherf#cker" If they'd raced each other, nico would have studied rankin videos and figured out to go faster than soul and simple love for rowdy speed. And he would have beat sam hill on the regular just by being boring and figuring ... more »

Yeah Jan Karpiel or some idiot working for him sent out a few frames his final year in business without heat treating them. Fucker should have been sent to jail over that. Fortunately for my face, that was years after I'd sold mine, which were fabricated ... more »

Reply to Let's see your old mountain bikes 5/20/2014 8:46 AM

You could make the Armageddons a little slacker with those eccentric shock mounts. Those were pretty cool (when they didn't slip). You had to use a skinny little shock though like the fox vanilla RCs to hit the far end of the range. That's pretty much ... more »
