Attention bike marketers: I do not watch burm slashing, edge of the world, drony, triple can-can bar hump videos. They are all the same; boring. But if Kurt is in a video, I watch. I watch because his videos are not "let's make a video like the other guy" videos, I watch because...more

His AllRide tour used to be incredible. He was on Santa Cruz bikes and ran a bike demo across the country and tied it into all sorts of street rides, group rides, filming sessions, etc. He and Lindsey went from town to town ACROSS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. He is the hardest working...more

Kirt is a real OG and godfather of today's mtbing. Maximum respect to him. People like him and Lenosky belong in the MTB hall of fame. But unfortunately that's life in the biz today. The progression curve is so steep that people who were Legends six or seven years ago, are getting...more

He's definitely a rider that still inspires me. Some brand should at least flow him some frames. Robot bike co how about you?

This is why I will always keep coming back to Vital, true reporting on the real world of two wheels bicycles that go downhill fast.

Please tell me you still have the DeChutes sponsorship. You're a generous man in more ways than one, Respect.

I repaired a shock for him at Crankworks 2016.... He was one of the most appreciative people I helped out the entire two weeks. Thanks for being an awesome person Kirt.

Sorry I was a butt hole 14 years ago! The funny thing is why the hell would I even say that? Ive been around the world and know not everyone speaks english. I probably was breaking the ice with you, sorry you took it the wrong way.

This was supposed to be positive post. Ive said this before, When you are in catalogs, have magazine ads, develop product, coach, and get pro podiums, you are doing your other sponsors a disfavor by promoting something for free. Providing content, writing articles, volunteer trail work, etc, is how I hustle for my sponsors. Insta ballin is what I do! Don't hate the player, hate the game!

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame from friends that worked there in hopes budget would come back. I sent out proposals but teams were filled and I was branded. It was really no prob because I have great sponsors like Sram, FOXMTB, Clif Bar, and Camelbak that stepped up and kept me going. I do feel obligated to have a bike sponsor to finish that circle of sharing content and promoting my brands together, so a frame sponsor was needed. This past year Drew from Declinemag had a Canyon laying around so I figure I try something new and kept the shred alive! Season is done and I had fun. No pity for me tho, I've been dreaming for 22years, and will keep dreaming sponsors or not! I love this shit!

Thanks for kind words everyone and thank you Spomer for watching out for Homies!!
