That tanktop is pretty much exactly what I've been looking for for (xc-bc-dh) skiing. I will likely acquire it if it becomes available before the end of winter.

I'm very dissapointed that WTB is going the Schwalbe route of 'forward-outward' facing side-lugs for their tires. I just don't play well with that design, and it's too bad because otherwise I liked their tires and would give the new designs a try.

some of those shots are ridiculously cool. It's got to be a pretty high motivator to get off your ass and pedal harder when a heli is hovering behind you!

on a side note, either Specialized is developing new tires, or he's running a blacked out Rock Razor on the back....

regardless of what's going on in SA, I'm guess sarcasm isn't well received wherever phillemaistre is...

I don't really see what the big deal is. They're a company. Ostensibly in business to make money. 650b is taking off. Specialized will make money with 650b. Yeah, their marketing department will eat crow, and we gloat about that, but whatever. If they ... more »

haha, 711mm... Easton Carbon Havens... now that I looked, I can't imagine riding 740 for trail riding. I just grabbed my 760mm Furbars on my DH bike, and it's way too wide for trail riding as far as I'm concerned... though I suppose it's worth trying I guess.

5'9".... I'm on a medium Mojo HD. Apparently, it has an unfashionably short top tube. For me, I think it will ride better with a 60mm or 70mm stem. With the 50 I'm constantly nailing my knees against my levers (both climbing and descending), and my hands just feel too close to me, like I'm all bunched up. The 70 is my baseline, but it had a 6° rise. It was ok, but maybe a tad forward on the downs. I'm going to give a 60mm no-rise stem a try this season. I just wish I hadn't had to buy two stems to figure this out...

this is great and all, but what I'd like to know is how to choose stem length... beyond "anything more than 50mm is for gomers"...

I fell for that last year, bought a 50 mm Thomson stem, and it didn't improve my bike handling, and actually made descending worse. Stems might be an experimental thing, but it gets expensive to buy stems in each 5mm increment. There has to be a rule of thumb?
