Vital RAW - #TBT Darren Miller, 2002 9

First generation Santa Cruz V10's, 5th Element rear shocks, Intense 26 x 2.7-inch 4-ply tires and the buzz of a Hadley rear hub; the good old days of smashing with Darren Miller at Gold Hill, outside Boulder, Colorado.

    I wonder what the response from bike designers would have been in 2001 if you had told them, "Just make the top tube three inches longer, the bars four inches wider, and the head angle five degrees slacker. It'll be great. Trust me."

    Loved my first gen V10. How the hell did we ride with bars that narrow?!
