Reply to Online vs. Bike Shops - Inevitable Change? 5/29/2014 7:21 AM

Reply to "Small differences, looming large" and the perceived increasing cost of MTB 5/21/2014 12:31 PM

Reply to Is 4X dying? 2/27/2011 9:26 PM
4x is alright, i'd be great with better tracks. Just put the Sol Vista builders on tour and they'd come up with some legit stuff. I always thought a course that dipped into a wooded section would be rad. You'd get your roots and technical terrain then ... more »
Reply to What the people want 2/24/2011 9:32 PM
I could agree more. I get so tired of Decline when I open it up and all I see is the same stuff I saw on the Internet the month prior. I've emailed them a ton saying I'd like to see some more coverage about riding. One of my suggestions was a feature ... more »

Well he hasn't been showing up to any contests... maybe Kona got tired of it.

Variation is key and i think they'll hit it on the head with Gravity logic helping in the process. i really like the idea of a world cup course up there... man that'd be sweet. Anyway i'll buy season passes for my entire family. I'm so stoked for this... ... more »

Reply to I read it in a magazine-oh 2/6/2010 2:41 PM
