Reply to Silent or LOUD Hubs? 9/14/2012 9:07 AM

I agree with the comments above in regards to just hearing nature when riding the trails but there is something awesome about the buzz of a rear hub like the Chris King. My votes on the loud hubs.

I'm from Canada (from the prairie provinces) and our local ski hill used to be open for mountain biking in the summer but just recently had to shut down as they could not even break even. Although mountain biking is gaining popularity, I think freeride/DH ... more »

One more....this was my DJ bike back in 2004. Note the fat tires, 24" back wheel, burly BMX crank...I think this bike weighted around 35 pounds.

That cabin is awesome. I think you are right about the ladder bridge on top of the roof (at least thats what it looked like from the initial sketches of the course). Would be kind of cool if they added a jump on the side and build a big wallride off ... more »

I read somewhere the Red Bull is now the sponsor for the Slope Style event. It also said that the course will be designed by Redbull athletes such as Darren Berrecloth. Should be sweet.

This isn't a picture of mine but I used to have a KHS Dominatrax and it tops the list of worst bike i have ever owned. Horrible paint color and quality, no name brand rear shock ( couldn't even set it to the 9'' setting ) and horrible welds and frame

Just a couple of more things popped into my head.... Remember back in the day when most forks would not fit the 2.5+ tires so you had to get those after market fork arches to get enough clearance. I think I had a blackspire Shock Tower one so that I ... more »
