Hah ha. Hah ha ha.... HA HA HA HAH HA! Bentonville, go home. You're drunk. Get out of Arkansas and see for yourself. But seriously, if someone in the states could do something similar to Whistler or any other actual potential mtb capital of the world,

Loris has def tried the newer dhx2(mullet vs full 29 vid). Curious if that's what he likes or if that is what was available on picture day. Does the fork have "40" stickers on it as well? Fox ditching the "49" tag or am I seeing it wrong?

If you like it the way it is, save your money for your next toy. Otherwise... A chain. *You say it's your first bike so I just assume you haven't replaced the original chain yet. Fyi- they 'stretch'. Then wear your cogs. No bueno. Nice tires (whatever ... more »

https://www.helmet.beam.vt.edu/bicycle-helmet-ratings.html This is by far the best I've found but still curious how they are testing them/how similar the tests are compared to real life accidents at speed

Joe- you are the first person from the entire bike industry (outside all of us techs that have had these in a repair stand) to call E-MTB's a motorcycle. Thank you. They are. Not against E-MTB's. I feel like there is a place for them(motorcycle trails, ... more »

Around my neck is where my goggles usually end up. But they start backwards on my lid. Liking the frame/top tube idea. Def see a lot of people wear gogs like an armband IMO it's worth wearing/bringing goggles along rather than glasses. If your riding ... more »

You should try it if you can without breaking the bank. I do see the upside to a 29" rear, but if you're short and get ur nuts buzzed as often as I do on a 26, that seems scary. Mullets seem to work for Loic, Danny, and Laurie

I agree with dirty bird- "People don't like change." I don't think it's just an a-hole mtb'er thing. Likely you and me just pay more attention to mtb related stuff on the net. Whether it be petrol vs electric, music from 'back then' vs today, meat vs ... more »

Added reply in a thread Tubeless Conversion kits 10/17/2019 5:20 PM

Short answer... I think you can make it work. Try it. A lot of wheels and tires have different tolerances when it comes to bead/rim diameter. In my experience that is the biggest factor in whether it will work or not. You can check the fit without purchasing ... more »
