I don't know a whole lot about filming and editing techniques. I have no idea what some of you mean by "old school skate videos." What I do know is that if it takes more than 20 seconds to get to riding, I'm very likely to stop watching the video. Please, ... more »
Thanks for the info, YT. I'm sure Brakes that can stop Zina will have no problem stopping me.
Hey YT, In your experience, are the Guide RSC brakes speced on the Tues CF Pro really powerful enough for DH? I've seen many other companies doing the same thing, but I am still skeptical that they can compete with Shimano Saint, Shimano Zee, Hope Tech ... more »
I drive for 30-40 minutes to get to the trails. I used to just go a few blocks to ride, but since moving I am farther away than I like to be from any trails. Sigh...Hopefully I can change that in a few years!
The Bos Void shock has an $820.00 MSRP according to Jenson USA. http://www.jensonusa.com/!k5Qssemujsbpbpp45!aQDw!/Bos-Suspensions-Void-Rear-Shock?utm_source=FRGL&utm_medium=organic&gclid=CIefsfefpcoCFROTfgodv5cJKw what else do we need?
do you have a picture of where you dinged your rim?
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 »
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.
Check out http://www.hookit.com/ there are a number of companies that will sponsor you. Some companies offer great deals, while other companies are cheap. Good luck at the races.
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 »
There are some great ideas that I have seen in the forum so far, The only thing I can add is this: I want to see a "Vital Test Sessions, DH Edition."
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 »
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.
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 »
Analyze a given riding situation, plan, then commit like Cam Zink. Pretty much all other skills will go up a notch from there.
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 »
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 »
Tell it to us Brotha! Amen!
