Added a comment about news blog No More Beer in the Booth - Rob Warner on Becoming a Commentator 12/3/2014 7:24 AM

I've been watching the World Cup since the first year Freecaster was broadcasting it. And I've always found drunk Warner to be a detriment to the sport. As much as I found some of his schtick funny, the first time I left the volume on in the house, my girlfriend told me to shut that sh!t off, it was too obnoxious. To this day I can't get her to sit and watch a race with me, and her first experience has tainted her view of the sport. Same goes with my kids. They're 4 and 2 now. There's no way I can watch the broadcast with them if there's swearing... and guess who my kids are? the future of the sport. what better time to get them hooked than now. If Rob tones it down a bit, while maintaining his enthusiasm and knowledge of the sport, RedBull could be on to something...

I love drunken Warner as much as the next guy, but polishing up his act a bit falls in line with Redbull raising the production value of the whole series. They're looking to expand beyond the target audience, and if that means reigning in Rob a bit in the name of more exposure...more

Added reply in a thread Middle of the road, All around tubeless rim? 11/26/2014 6:12 AM

Honestly, have a look at Spank rims. I've had both Stans (arch and Flow EX) and WTB (i23) and both are great. I have a Spank (Trail 295) on now, but only for two rides, though on very rocky terrain. They're lighter, have the bead bite, and the alloy ... more »

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....

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 »
