Reply to World Champs DH Entries 8/27/2015 12:29 PM

i'm not 100% positive, but i think the UCI ranking listed is different than just the World Cup ranking, based on a variety of different races. for example, when a U.S. race has "UCI points", i think those go toward your UCI ranking. again, not 100% sure ... more »

here's a vid of some of the XC racing with some DH at the end. our first glimpse of how things are looking with Elite World Champs just a week away

Reply to Creaking While Pedaling ? 8/11/2015 8:23 PM

it may just need some initial adjustment/lube after the first assembly in the bottom bracket area. this video may help, but all bikes will creak if not maintained. wet or dusty environments mean more maintenance. i'm not saying you haven't maintained ... more »

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/30/2015 8:27 AM

it's a bummer it seems like such a jam up at the race. for brandon to be blown out by a 2 stages is pretty gnarly. he's a fit little f'er. #davecampftw

Reply to Mongoose Dolomite 20 inch boys bike 7/29/2015 10:22 PM

i'd be surprised if that retailed for more than $100. it's a very basic, budget "big box store" bike. the model # seems to indicate it's a 2011. do a google search and know that it's not the "fat bike" that is using the mongoose dolomite name now.

when he won the progrt a few weeks ago, i tried to find video of him blasting at the skatepark on his bmx to post. nothing online really. i'm stoked to have witnessed him go 400 feet out of boulder and louisville parks in person, #neerforlife

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/27/2015 9:37 AM

considering how tight times are in the Top 20 anymore, knowing 1 or 2 lines over someone else could mean something in results. but as we're seeming to agree, it won't matter much when DC wins : ) i heard he's racing on a home-made bamboo 29+ rigid singlespeed ... more »

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/27/2015 8:39 AM

if i was a competitor, my biggest issues (like the 2 above who have decided not to race now) would be the late addition of another practice day and the altering of the course layout/liaisons/climbs. i think the reason showing up early to a venue has ... more »

Reply to Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/25/2015 6:40 AM

the last-minute addition of wednesday's unofficial practice is a bummer. getting helmet cam footage alone for an extra day of study is a huge advantage to anyone competing, whether they ride all the trails or not. ibeaver, plenty of pro riders with legitimate ... more »

Reply to Riding Trail / XC without a chamois? 7/17/2015 12:31 PM

saxx on the daily? just for rolling around? spendy underwear stash you have! they seem legit for a ride try though. my taint still trembles at the fear of the unknown though

Reply to Riding Trail / XC without a chamois? 7/17/2015 12:19 PM

ok, but what are you running? regular underwears? yeah the chamois is subjected to grossness, but w/o it, your underwears are. seems like you'd have to do 2-3 hour rides 4 or 5 times a week for your taint to toughen up. sorta like "summer feet" or "reef ... more »
