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 »

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.

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

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 »

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 »

Reply to Let's see your old mountain bikes 5/19/2014 4:09 PM

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.

LakeTown Bicycles in South Jordan might have some, plus once you walk in, you'll make lifetime friends with the staff. If you want the "I only care about you as long as I think you will give me money" approach, Go-Ride.com is headquartered in Salt Lake ... more »
