New thread How to become "That Cool Security Guard." 6/16/2021 10:56 PM

I watch a lot of Sam Pilgrim videos. When I'm not fully engrossed in Dusty's channel that is. And he seems to deal with a lot of security guards. And, crazily, they always seem to tell him to stop having fun. And I understand. There's the Fun Police ... more »

New thread Do nothing wrong... Unicorn Days? 11/17/2020 7:52 PM

I've brought up this topic before, but was recently reminded by a Max Fredrickson video on the Tube about unturndowns. I said they come from Aptos, some said the Swedes perfected them... Have you ever had a riding session where everything just clicked ... more »

New thread Bump Mike Clark Just Chillin. 4/8/2020 4:27 PM

I've posted this video before, but after seeing another similar one I checked it out again. It almost seems prophetic about now. Mike was a rider that I looked up to in my day and he became a quality musician as well. While you're watching this I'll ... more »

New thread All Things Suspension Tech 3/12/2020 7:21 PM

My first mountain bike was fully rigid. Those Farmer Johns did mad work to tame the terrain. Then I ordered a GT Avalanche with a bad assed double, super, triple clamp Pro Flex! Then I was told that because my new bike was an XL, the super fork wouldn't ... more »

New thread So. Cal.Riders! Gabrielano Trail? 2/12/2020 7:25 PM

Back when Vital had regional sections in the forums, I tried time and time again to find out the condition of the Gabby Trail both before and after the fire, then floods that I heard had done major damage to it. Before the fire i was met with stone cold ... more »

New thread UCI Technical Climbing World Champs 11/7/2019 5:48 PM

I've mouthed off here on the forums and in the video comments about how technical climbing should be an official sport. Back before I knew what downhill was, I used to love to climb. My first instinct, back in '89or so, was to clean that climb. At the ... more »

New thread Mechanic Beef 10/11/2019 2:01 PM

I love chilling out with a Dream Build with Gee Milner. I can't really ride any more. And I don't work in a bike shop anymore. So I love to get Zen with a fellow builder and watch the magic happen. But time and now time yet again, I'm horrified by the ... more »

New thread Rampage course idea. 7/30/2019 5:21 PM

Here's a free bee for either Red Bull Media House or any rider lucky enough to compete this year... At rampage, there are lots of beautiful buttes in the background. Many of them have pretty sweet transitions. Why not build a line that could be viewed ... more »

New thread Just figured i'd mention... 6/23/2019 6:28 PM

I went to the premier of this film months ago and figured I'd see it on Vital the next morning. Apparently it showed on BeigeBike, but never quite caught on here. So, made with tongue buried deep in cheek, I present to you... This link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_e-Au50UOh0 ... more »

New thread Addnausea. 4/17/2019 3:03 PM

I know Specialized pays you more, since I don't pay you at all. But that flashing build your own Stumpy add is really annoying to me. It really kinda makes me nauseous and I often cover up that side of the screen in order to read articles. I'm surprised ... more »

New thread Cush Core technique. Why the complaints? 8/31/2018 6:49 PM

At work at Art's Cyclery, everyone was always struggling and complaining about having to install Cush Core tire inserts. Work times of half an hour or more per wheel were common. Sometimes with up to three people on the job. I finally installed my first ... more »

New thread Well done Brett. C'caaw! 8/18/2018 6:47 PM

I eat Crow Sir. Is that how the saying goes? I called you out in the Vital comments on your recent video saying that you need to stand up and take second place gracefully. Today you did Sir.

New thread What are old Decline Magazines worth? 8/15/2018 10:34 PM

Listening to the Griz podcast I was reminded of my almost two foot stack of old declines. I've got most of the first few years aside from the second and sixth? eighth? both? How 'bout the issue where they did the timing watch review, Free Lap? Where ... more »

New thread New Revel vidio. 5/11/2017 8:05 PM

I assume it will be here soon, but I just watched a video on another site that asked, Is Brandon Semenuk as good on a BMX as he is on a mountain bike. Seems that he is.

New thread Apple widget. 1/28/2017 10:10 AM

I got the new apple widget when it was suggested on my phone. But when I press it, it takes me to Vice.com, not Vital.com. I like Vice and all, but not in my Vital. Strange.
