Reply to Should Enduro Be a Riding Type? 12/26/2015 10:38 AM

I want to add some comments to my original post. This Triangle is more about labels for companies to use to distinguish between products in their lineup. As I thought about it, I never said, "I'm going freeriding!" or "I'm going Pakring!" when I owned ... more »

Reply to Should Enduro Be a Riding Type? 12/24/2015 10:46 AM

I am all on board for calling Enduro a riding discipline in addition to a racing format. Labels can really help us to understand a bikes designed strengths and weaknesses, which help us to choose a bike (or bikes for the fortunate) that are right for

So, here you are getting after Gwin for bringing religion into his interviews, yet you are bringing it into a forum about racing rumors. Guys who make comments like yours bring up Gwin's religion more frequently than Gwin does.

Reply to newbie looking for the right bike 12/7/2015 8:13 PM

I would go for any slopestyle bike that you can outfit with a rear derailleur and gears if you want a bike to ride trail and hit jumps with. Trek Ticket S, Specialized P-Slope (though you will have to swap some parts to give this bike gears,) Specialized ... more »

Reply to Are You Getting a New Bike for 2016? 10/30/2015 2:16 PM

I haven't had any problems running a 180 air sprung, single crown fork (180 Fox 36 Float) at the park, and both the Voltage, and Darkside work well with single or dual crown forks. Also, the Knolly Delerium should be out before the parks open up next ... more »

Reply to The Problem isn't Redbull: It's Us 10/20/2015 6:33 PM

We the consumer are, at worst, guilty of funding companies that use unethical practices, without knowing of those unethical practices. But, now that we know about these practices, we are calling out these companies and demanding change. Yes, we were ... more »

Reply to Pike fork with no rebound 9/26/2015 1:55 PM

I agree with Falcon, take the RC back and get your RCT3. You paid for it after all, and by law the shop is obligated to give you what you paid for, or give you your money back.

Reply to Biking+bears!! 8/3/2015 11:29 PM

I would try and contact the Priest Lake State Park authorities and see what they say are the best deterrents for bears in the area. http://parksandrecreation.idaho.gov/parks/priest-lake I have heard that what you do in a bear attack depends on the species of bear, but I imagine the Park Rangers ... more »

Reply to If you could do one thing on a bike REALLY well, what would it be? 4/24/2015 2:14 PM

Analyze a given riding situation, plan, then commit like Cam Zink. Pretty much all other skills will go up a notch from there.

Reply to Crankworx World Tour an Alternative to UCI Racing?? 2/19/2015 6:18 PM

I personally believe that the way Crankworx is run is the best way to grow the sport. Crankworx becomes one huge party and is able to attract not only mountain bikers, but people who aren't familiar or participating in the sport. That leads to new riders, ... more »

Reply to Should the World Cup Downhill season have more races? 10/14/2014 10:04 PM

I'm all for more World Cup Races. But the current formula for WC events is crippling the UCI's ability to branch out and hold more races. All companies and organizations and organizers need to make money on the event, and that is the hardest part of ... more »

Reply to "Small differences, looming large" and the perceived increasing cost of MTB 5/21/2014 3:56 PM

Why buy a Carbon wheel set for nearly $3,000 when I can buy an alloy one that is only 100 grams more in weight? Well, imagining that I have that kind of money, I would buy the carbon wheel set because, first; it is 100 grams lighter and should be as ... more »

Here is my old girl, Betty. She was a 2005 Kona Coiler. Eventually upgraded the rear shock to a DHX 5.0 with a titanium spring.

She was a fun ride, I certainly progressed a lot while riding her. Even placed 4th ... more »
