Added reply in a thread New question - weird frame spots on new Specialized... 11/19/2017 9:11 PM

A few of the Spec color ways are designed to change with exposure to the sun, or possibly in your case, UV light. They go all tie die or something. They come with a sticker on the frame that says so. Perhaps yours got taken off?

He might have brought it back. I USED to do that on purpose at the dirt jumps. Get all nose down whipped, land on the front wheel at the top of the landing, let gravity accelerate your front wheel down the landing thus straightening out the bike before ... more ยป

Reminds me of our warm up rut at the top of the Freedom 40 trails. I was kinda expecting more of a flattish pump track type thing. One can generate speed from pumping a rut just as well as a berm. Why dig 'em when you can just ride 'em in?

Wow, that looks fun. Imagine if there was a discipline of mountain biking that involved a track similar to that. We could race down them. Wait, it could be even better if there were two tracks right next to each other! Then the races could...more

But he didn't cut the course? He stayed on it.

I once did a ride in Santa Cruz, in Aptos realy at Nicene Marks, where the sidewall of my rear rim blew out at the top of the six or eight mile fire road climb. I took the tire and tube off and just bombed back down the hard packed road. By the bottom, a lot more of the side wall had broken off and the rest was well packed with mud. No rear brakes!

Fresh dirt on the take off and landing for every shot? Holy crap that's next-level pro.

I second that. But hey, I drink plenty of alcohol and I know that isn't good for me. I just miss the second part about incredible riding.

Having MS, I'm the perfect target for an Ebike salesman, but I've sworn against them because of the potential trail access issues for others associated with them.

Loss of trail access is the big ticket. The various trail user groups throughout the US are very heavily anti-MTB. Mountain biker advocacy groups across the US have fought a long hard battle to get what little access we have. As of late, the fight has been going very well, mainly due to the...more

If the old ways of MTB still held true and one competed in XC, DH and trials to determine the true winner. Phill would do quite well.
