I agree with you that jkw gets after it for sure, especially in the more recent stuff. It's very possible it's go pro stabilization mixed with a gimbal or something else contributing to why it just feels off. From about 2:20 to 2:40 and 3:20 to 3:30 ... more »

I'll post a suspicious video if nobody else will. @sspomer, don't know if there's a way to embed. https://youtu.be/tl63f0_XIXQ(i embedded for you -spomer)

I stopped watching at ~45 seconds. Skidding damages these trails. Period. Full stop.

Glorifying the act of skidding tells the next generation that it's OK, and then instead of one douchebag skidding we have a whole generation doing it.

Stop the insanity -- this...more

@dirtworks911 That's a great question. There are a ton of variables at play here, but our experience with the 27.5" wheels with standard (non boost) spacing has been excellent. More than likely the 29" Next R wheel would be stiff enough for nearly every rider, even more so if you're running boost spacing.

Added a comment about product review Tested: Maxxis Forekaster Tire 11/20/2017 12:28 PM

Hey @JVP, the tires tested were indeed the 3C MAXX SPEED compound. Before I rode them, I was also skeptical that the MAXX SPEED would perform well in the PNW - especially in the wet.

To put it in perspective, just before the Forekaster I was riding Minion DHFs in both MAXX GRIP and MAXX TERRA compounds. In wet conditions the Forekaster was competitive with them. I attribute this to the Forekaster being better at clearing mud and slop than the Minions and I was able to run about 7psi lower (on 5mm wider rims) and get the same tire feel with a bit of added contact patch on rocks and roots.

Alon, I would feel comfortable riding this fork on any trail I would take my trail bike down (also about 160-170mm travel). It has been a very solid performer for me and I would expect it to perform great on whatever you can throw at it. The Metric is very similar to the X-Fusion RV1 downhill fork, so you could check out that review if you want another similar, but slightly different perspective.

Hi David, if you could please help me with a few questions:
I have one bike which I use for all the riding I do (Trek Scratch, 170mm travel bike). most of the trails I ride are AM in nature, where you have to earn the descents, and some DH here and there. I prefer DH over AM but...more

Specialized clutch on my trail bike, you can get it in three casing options depending on how hard you want to blast. Little bit slower rolling than a larsen TT or anything, but not enough to make too big of a difference since your descent will be that ... more »

suspension/rigid fork preference is up to you. 25-9 ratio will be pretty damn hard to pedal.... totally different than your bmx ratio with the different wheel sizes

Added reply in a thread MT BMX Bike 11/8/2010 2:00 PM

DMR used to (still might) make a frame with 14mm dropouts, but the spacing on a bmx rear hub is 110mm which is too narrow for a MTB frame anyways (135mm). a new BB for your cranks should only be about $40 at the most, but you may also need a longer spindle. ... more »

I agree with TRex... championships early OR BRING THEM BACK TO SOL VISTA. Official unofficial champs need to happen. We don't need the USAC to have a solid race with "rules" and the extra junk they like to bring along with their bad attitudes.
