It's nice to know that an American site like Vital looks past politics and recent events to post an article like this on the front page.

Hit up Hossein Zanjanian, if you ever do find yourself in Iran and need a really fast ripper as company.

Still high level. But I wouldn't say new level.

I feel comfortable predicting Red Bull Media House. Full series. And huffy may have fished for him, but he'll stay on Santa Cruz.

There's merit in just getting out there in the sloppy cold. You can develop a lot of bike skills trying to stay upright and at a slower pace. Those tiny corrections to your balance that you learn to make are just the kind of micro adjustments that help ... more »

Thanks for that Kirt. I did a bit of animation as a kid. Fun huh?

Hi Josh.... I dont know those dudes... i am not old-school... i work in the bike business though so i have some connections... i had an inside line podcast year before last, so maybe that rings a bell... but yeah... i messaged spomer about maybe doing an article about rear hubs and how they transfer torque, the differences in the designs, and why you would want one design over the other... and how to collect data so there could be a quantitative discussion...

Your name is quite familiar. Can't recall where from. I'm Josh Walters who used to live in Santa Cruz and ride with Joey Hayes of OTM/180 magazine. I'd love to see those hubs under Ali Clarkson for a test. Live on the YouTube.

It would be sweet to someday see a privateer just totally dominate the field. An angry Jack on the hunt has that potential.

Added a comment about product review SPIN FOREVER! Onyx Racing's Silent MTB Hub Review 1/8/2020 6:29 PM

There have been other hub makers that have done this. Stealth I think is one. But when put up to use on a trials bike, they just couldn't hold up, which greatly delayed their release. I'm a bit out of touch with the trials scene and wonder if these were tested under such conditions and are they just the new standard and everyone is on them? If they hold up, this is the holy grail of trials hubs.

Oh good, no earth shattering changes that would make me regret grabbing one of these last year (two actually if you count the Smash and Trail Pistol as two bikes). Can I retrofit the fancy new downtube protector on my current bike? (not that I need to--that baby is REVVED!).

Keep up the...more

I love the modular concept and also the fact they are made in USA.

Ridiculous ounce again. How does Danny expect us mere mortals to get through our days while being constantly reminded of our serious shortcomings?

On another note. He's on a new frame! Still carbon but blue now. Might this be Stepf's theory of a new trials bike from Santa Cruz and with it a dream team with Fabio and, why not, Chris?

Ah memories... I used to live and ride in Santa Cruz and was sort of an unofficial crash test dummy for Santa Cruz. As a big and aggressive rider I went through plenty of alloy frames including at least five OG 26 Chameleons. Warranties were always super easy, don't ask don't tell affairs (Three Super 8s, four or five Hecklers and at least five Chameleons.) Then one day they finally figured out their heat treating and they just stopped breaking.
