Just a little deadband in my levers before they engage. That and noise free drivetrain. Can't stand noise from the BB & cranks specifically.
1. Never leave a buddy behind. not ditching a buddy is more important than who can get to the bottom or top fastest (unless your road riding ... because that's all that matters). 2. Make fun of Lycra as much as possible because at some point you'll own ... more »
1. Start a fund for riders who are injured competing. Kind of like Aflac but they don't have to pay in to it. 2. Disappear
admittedly I did not read all of the comments however I have experience with this so I figured I'd share. I dented my i9 enduro rim badly in two places and the tire would not seal. I took the tire off then put it in a truing stand and started bending ... more »
Zink had a pretty obvious tweet today
YT is a proven winner, just not in DH.
I'm more inclined to say this system works. Simply because we've see two failures out of how many successful practice/testing/race runs. I think people assumed (and Schwalbe supported) that you can run pressures far lower than with normal tubeless. This ... more »
Corner, nothing feels better than railing turns (bermed, flat or off camber) at high speeds.

Saving my pennies already. I've been sold on air just waiting for fox to make the 40 in O2. Iceman, that last pic looks like that is more than usual stanchion showing. hmmm. likely just internet stoke making me see things.
thats what she said
here is my big bike
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 »
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 »
I decided that i'm going to: 1. Ride more AM 2. Go ride bikes with my girlfriend more often 3. Build a hard tail Trail/AM bike. 4. Go on at least 1 more MTB vacation 5. Ride fade to black
Netflix.. mainly Nathan Lane movies.
