it's so interesting how the mental factor of how a rider looks and feels on the bike can be just as important as the tech features of a bike.

i would just ride it and see what wears out, replacing the parts as necessary. i personally wouldn't sink a lot of money into upgrading it though. i'd rather save up for a nicer trail bike (used or new). i can't tell if this fork has a 15mm axle or not, ... more »

hey tyler, that looks like a fun bike to help get you into mountain biking and exploring your local trails. it should be able to handle most downhills that come with a normal ride out on the trails and even some small jumps that don't have really harsh ... more »

that's rad you got gwin's old frame. the 303 rdh proto was there on that trip to the factory and here's the 303ss that never made it anywhere either. i thought this looked rad. it was a 5" travel frame IIRC.

that seems possible for sure. TWR seems to value overall team performance awards. having ragot on w/ brook and neko would help in that department.
Reply to I need to know what mongoose frame this is 10/26/2014 12:31 PM
is there a serial number on the bottom bracket? if so, that could help you be certain. a quick google search for "mongoose full suspension" brought up the XR200 which looks similar. basically a "walmart" bike and probably not worth the hassle or cost

who knows what's in the development pipeline w/ FOX and RockShox (aside from the RS-1), but since they're offering 27.5 DH forks, i'd imagine they'll continue with the "rightside up" design for consumers for a while. As for the other brands with upside ... more »

Fabien Cousinie who manages the Hutchinson UR Team had this to say I am totally for doing a longer series with a lot more races because our sport needs to become like the Formula 1 of MTB. To become a good show that makes people dream, we need more than
Reply to Should the World Cup Downhill season have more races? 10/14/2014 4:34 PM
Here's what Greg Minnaar had to say on the matter. My ideal WC season would be a 10-race series for a couple reasons. 10 races gives you enough time to come back after a mechanical, we have the calendar to accommodate, we have great venues that we don’t
