It's been a minute, so allow me to reintroduce myself. I'm Zach. I've been told when I ride, it sounds like the mountain is crumbling, and when I crash it sounds like a tree falling. For the past decade I've been racing DH, and that's been the all-consuming ... more »

Reply to Shock Thrust Bearing 7/17/2015 9:18 AM

I haven't ordered anything just yet (wasn't going to be here in time for the Windham test event, so figured I'd save some money for now). Went with this size/spacing so I could run the bearings on both ends of the shock, and I had to account for the

Cheers - after some reading, I figured out how to size the stuff I need from McMaster.

New thread Shock Thrust Bearing 7/13/2015 6:22 PM

Does anyone know what the dimension of this bearing is here on Steve's bike?
It's an older photo, but I am having trouble finding the number's i.e. what size to fit on a DHX RC4. Any info is helpful, thanks.

This is one of the more interesting bike hacks posted up in a while. It would be cool to see a side-by-side of Charge/FIT (Float)/Ohlins in a 40 chassis. Keep us posted on results/thoughts, this is worth hearing more about.

Spot test: can a dude on a dirtbike casually follow you through the set? If answered, "yes", your spot is legit. FEST this year is going to be gnarly...

New thread Hydration Packs 4/7/2015 9:48 PM

What are people wearing? [insert red carpet joke here] Need a new hydration pack. Evoc; Osprey; Camleback; Deuter; etc. More interested in capacity and comfort as a general thought. Suggestions, feedback, have at it.

Look for some serious surprises in the first round. Rat is back, Eliot can breathe, Loic is smiling, the Trek lads are fit as, and the CRC boys are feeling it. I'm interested to see Troy on this track, as well as some of the "under the radar" guys. This ... more »

I think this just proves that "parking lot tricks" are worth practicing, no matter how dumb you look while doing so.

Agreed. I really wanted to see something big and badass. It is a little underwhelming, but wicked cool nonetheless - could have just been so much louder. Though, I understand that for the first time around it might have been a conscious decision in order ... more »

Thomas (new Sunn rider) just liked some of my Instagram photos right as I was reading that press release. #Illuminati Unrelated, I think Jerseygate has been beaten into the ground at this point gang - bigger fish to fry: Look, RRP has a cool female rider! ... more »

Reply to New Carbon Iron Horse Sunday Front Triangle 2/11/2015 7:23 PM

Cool idea. Geo/price? If it's updated geo, that's cool. But this still seems to be a little late (2-years old or now, either way). Any further info? Just curious to know more.

Reply to Do you ride with a pack? 1/8/2015 3:16 PM

I've gone the old school route a la Tinker Juarez and started riding with a backpack full of rocks. I think it's really helped me hone my packanimal skills, and I have learned a lot about bike maintenance and the varying ways a rock can fix and unfix ... more »

Reply to Do you think a World Cup DH career debut like Gwin's is possible anymore? 12/30/2014 4:13 PM

While skill will get you in the gate, mindset gets you down the track. Gwin changed the game with his headspace. His skills are exceptional, and his abilities went unmatched for two season, but it had less to do with physical prowess than it did with ... more »
