Now that review makes far more sense (looking at the numbers) than the garbage review from Pinkbike.

One thing I would say is you guys need to get a midget tester who can ride the medium because I couldn't ride that thing with its 130mm head tube. Well maybe with a flat bar and...more

That curb-smashing is impressive! Makes me cringe a little, but cool that there's a product that'll protect rims and air with impacts like that. Very impressive.

The reviews here are some if not the most thorough in the mountain biking media. I like that you all break stuff as this is something few reviewers readily discuss. The literary and historical references are fun too. I am long time Joseph Conrad fan and I hope to get...more

Cool episode... this episode is co-sponsored by Rad and Knarly

Remember seeing Duncan at a race @ Sears Point raceway back in 2004ish... red jersey... yeah, he was fast & class.

Was wondering about something you said Duncan and wondering if you can clarify a bit because you stopped mid-thought. You described what seemed like a pretty special upbringing... grew up on an estate (?), 1.5 mile from a private beach, etc. Then you said it's a lifestyle, not privilege... and that we all make choices. Mind clarifying that?

Didn't think I'd have another "new e13" product on my bike ever... this might change my mind.

For some it may seem too technical, but I appreciate the suspension kinematics at the beginning of the review. It gives knowledgeable readers important information, well at least on paper. Also it sets Vital apart from the other magazines by providing a more detailed...more

Great interview. Finally, someone else talking about the massive waste incurred with all this knee-jerk standards changing every 18 months.

News flash to ONZA suits: Your business will grow to its highest peak the first quarter these tires are released to the public. I want these yesterday!

I would guess that Onza tire popularity peaked in the Porcupine days: http://wundel.com/pic/jpg_2/kult_onza_1.jpg I don't see it getting bigger than that! Had some decent versions following that as well in the mid 90s.

These will definitely sell though, and the big numbers are in the trail department.

Yea, no joke. Nothin like spending $600 on wear parts. Furthermore, Brandon, you made no mention of the price in your "things that could be improved" section. Curious.

Remarkable that for a someone that loves the good times/good vibes thing you sure come across as a bit of a downer. Hope the best for Missy and Leigh. Head injuries are really serious business.
And the memories of the ridemonkey days are still pretty fresh... it wasn't that long ago.
