This story was the second incident that prompted me to write about this issue. I excluded it only because I didn't want rampant guessing and hyperbole to flame up regarding the outcome of a potentially disastrous clash between riders. I was glad to hear ... more »

Thanks Spomer! Glad it's on-point, and relatable. I am interested as well to hear people's thoughts. Also: WAG: Wives and Girlfriends BAH: Boyfriends and Husbands (HAB is also acceptable)

New thread Whistle Blower 7/7/2014 9:05 PM

I am here to address a growing concern of mine, highlighted by some events this weekend at the ESC race at Killington: Where are all the course marshals? In the earlier years of racing, at every single race, from Mt Snow to Mtn Creek, there were marshals ... more »

Reply to Online vs. Bike Shops - Inevitable Change? 5/29/2014 8:19 AM

This is on point. ^ I think the point people are missing is that direct sales is taking off in the high-end bike market. Local shops can't afford to stock a whole floor with $3000 bikes, it's just not economical. That's why for years you'd see "That ... more »

Reply to Who would win? Sam Hill vs Nico Vouilloz in their prime 5/22/2014 8:54 PM

Brains > Balls. Nico would win the single-run race. Work smarter not harder, and he knew how to pick a trail apart. HIll's voracious speed and love of slashing corners is most certainly fast and entertaining, no doubt about it. However, only one of ... more »

Reply to Bar Height 4/30/2013 5:48 PM

Something else to keep in mind: with the old geo, most bikes rode pretty tall bc the fork legs were slammed in the crowns to add rake/decrease head angle, and in the process, the ride height of the bars increased - so slamming the bar/stem step helped ... more »

Reply to The UCI - The Empire Strikes Back? 4/11/2013 9:10 AM

It is great that a solution has been found for the mean time, but this conversation is far from over. Europe and the US have very different race scenes, and I don't see the American contingency stepping aside on this rule. Pass the popcorn.
