Started new thread Anyone riding 27.5+ at Rampage? 8/16/2015 7:02 PM

I just watched some of the Scott Genius 27.5+ test here on vital. Aside from it being a Scott Genius test, it was an interesting piece. Given the larger "contact patch" of 27.5+, I'm wondering if anyone at Rampage is ramping-up to the bigger tires? Gaining ... more »

Full disclosure: I rode in Crested Butte last weekend. That brought my total days riding in Crested Butte to 5, in my life. I have no idea if any of what I rode is in the race. The two days I've spent at the bike park are a safe bet, but I'd be willing ... more »

Graves seems like he's next to Tomac in crossover talent. Only a few guys have arguably been competitive in both cross country and downhill, Graves, gracia, minnaar, Tomac, obviously. Was Furtado on the list? Lopes should be on the list as well.

Started new thread Demo Wins at Lourdes 4/14/2015 8:40 AM

I remember that some years ago, people used to claim that no male elite World Cup had been won on a Demo. Since Aaron Gwin just won Lourdes (not on some beefed-up enduro), I'm wondering if this is actually the first time? Sorry, I'm not much of a historian ... more »

Richie Rude finished last year with some darn fast enduro results and now he starts this year with a win over Jared Graves. Go America! Curious...were they riding single or dual-crown bikes?!

What kind of rim was it? Are they available yet? Carbon? 26 or 27.5?

Thanks for the review. I never knew about the benefits of an offset spoke hole pattern or about brass nipples. Ok, maybe brass nipples, but that's another story...Kidding aside, I just noticed that the wheels that I started breaking spoke nipples on last summer (at about 4-5 months of riding) do not have an offset pattern. Perhaps it wasn't just my shitty whips that caused this. Are there examples of affordable rims / wheels (in my book, under $800 built with a decent hub, retail), that have offsets and are known to be bomb-proof? Also, 32-hole. I'd like a wheelset that will make a whole season (100+ days). Thanks!

Graves looked smooth in that one section, but I think that T-Mo owned him in that chute!

I've watched that one at least two dozen times. At this point in my life, big, low-speed drops like that are a deal-breaker. That doesn't mean I can't pick up this guitar and learn the song from the video, though. Thanks, Danny Mac.

I'd totally be into this if it as stable (or more) as the Go Pro. If it has good stabilizing software and refresh rate, then it's a great addition to mountain bike POV cameras. If not, next...Let's see a review and some choppy downhill footage shot in low light! Most of the clips in their promo are NOT POV...whassup wit dat?!

Good wheels for aggressive trail riding. After about a month of downhill, they started breaking spokes.

I went for the first time. Utterly speechless to how HUGE these lines are...I think that the riders should be ready to go for Saturday morning, take a vote, and when the wind is right, DO IT! Saturday, Sunday...whichever. These lines were so SICK and dangerous that taking the wind out of the equation with a two-day window would be the safest bet. Make the decision and let the crowd watch practice or go ride the old course!

Man, I wouldn't blame anyone for opting out of that course. Especially if it was windy. I agree that it looks bad, but having a death or someone getting paralyzed would look way worse. The course looked like it was consistently A LOT bigger than anything else we've seen, so whatever. Those last three runs were insane, btw...congrats to Rheeder.

Aaron Gwin redefined the sport in the last two years. In terms of speed and style, he's been on another level. Well, the rest of the pros just caught up...and in the case of Atherton and Smith, surpassed him. Gwin's on a new bike, getting his feel. Maybe he ate some donuts in the off-season. Give him a break. Does anyone remember the explosions Gee had last year getting himself up to speed? And look where he is now...
