Looked up T.H.E. while listening (just before the part where he discusses selling it off) just to see what's what over there [spoiler: not much, he wasn't joking]...but, the fenders are going for $7 right now. Guess what's in the mail?

On a different note, what a cool story, quite the hustle and drive! Really interesting to learn about how much he was involved in product development and innovation early on.

Terraplane's AM and DH bike line up is based around a high single pivot and yolked shocks, which is nothing new in itself. Don't forget the airplane was invented in two different places at the same time at the turn of the last century. There is little room for mind-blowing originality, and when a design is sensible, there is no reason it wouldn't pop up in several different places. Link-driven single-pivot bikes are dime-a-dozen, which only means that it's a solid design solution.

People who want custom, hand-built steel bikes will seek out the Californians, and those who prefer what PP is offering here, will undoubtedly purchase from them. Saying one looks like the other is the same as suggesting apricots and nectarines are the same.

Finally: Rolling Chassis. Took until 2017 for [a high-end brand] to figure that out. Rad.

This is a prime example of staying humble, working hard, and staying true to the cause. You're hard-pressed to find a lot of other well-rounded, grounded, and honest role models in sport and life in general.

This is one of the most helpful guides I've read in a while. After the press camp we did up in VT, all I've been thinking about is how to better prepare for big rides (in strong heat). Too bad these folks didn't have expos at the lunch stop on Monday...also, I now want waffles.

C138x104

In conversation about this event the other day, I was remarking about how when spectating, there are times when one is like, "Oh, I would ride that! Or I think a lot of people can ride that fast." But, Hardline is one of those events akin to Rampage, where even the riders are like, "I know I can, I just need to do it...right?" Wild riding, it's humbling to see!

I was personally hoping for a new release from Stages, a power meter which is e-bike specific.

To be fair, KHS is very upfront about being a catalogue brand. Their DH started that way, and then the team worked on it with the designers to get it to where it is now. This is really common across the industry.
