...& that's an excuse for not having the basic skills to hit that rock garden? Cause let me tell you, if you can't do that little guy, don't come to any races, XC or otherwise, in Arizona.

Go ahead - give me crap - but it's sad to see XC racers with little to no MTB skills. What exactly is mountain biking if all you do is easy featureless non technical trails? What then separates a road biker from a mountain biker? The technical skills. Otherwise it's just dirt road biking.

It's sad for MTB to see guys at national level with so poor technical skills. I mean, being at ntional level racing means for me you have enough physical and technical skills to be on the starting line. The bike used and the position these guys have on can be an explanation.
But honestly, I don't know why...more

This is why Enduro is so good. You have to be able to mountain bike.

No doubt. Last year's Vital reviews were a major breath of fresh air after reading I don't know how many years' worth of magazine write-UPs. I personally find few things — at least in this industry — more frustrating than a review or an advertisement that does nothing but paraphrase, or...more

Can anyone tell me what trails these are? I'm headed to Bend next week and would love to ride some of these!

I'll try most any saddle once...but if they can't even get someone to proofread their copy...I question their thoroughness.

I've rolled across my back many times when I've crashed. In fact, I'd say 1/2 the time the surface of my back touches the ground at some point during a crash.

This video doesn't tell me much. They make shorts with a little pocket you can put some energy gels in. They also make a hip pack that appears to require wearing an extra top layer. That's about all I got out of it.

Tools / Water / Air / Tubes would have been a more interesting acronym.

This is nothing more than trying to create a solution to a problem that hardly exists. Bottles on bikes and packs on backs have been real and valid options, and in the pack's case, a very...more
