Added reply in a thread UCI DH Rule Unclear - DSQ for Riding Over a Course-Marking Pole? 10/16/2020 12:58 PM

Should we go back a few years and review Ratchel's incident where I believe she actually did end up winning?

Danny handled the the G-outs better than who ever was behind him. But all three of them handled all sections better than probably the 99.9% of the rest of us.

I guess I will be the first. This makes no sense. They are allowed on the trails that require very little pedalling.

My money is on Marine. Vali will be an interesting one. Rachel? Is she defiantly coming back? With all the Athertons have going on I would not be surprised if she decided to retire. She is used to dominating and I think those days are over for many reasons. ... more »

I have this conversation with a lot of customers. In the PNW, these are 2nd/3rd/etc bikes. If you want one rig for everything, most of these brands offer a 140mm 29er, which seems to be the sweet spot. Unfortunately, the 140mm completes typically come with a spec...more

A bit of a rant. If you take a look at the Geo diagram the point that the actual seat tube center line and this meaningless center line that is to represent a seat tube angle intersect what in the hell is this point meant to represent? Is it where my saddle might be when slammed down? The result is that the top tube length and SA mean nothing. When is the industry going to get its act together and actually figure out a way to actually communicate what my cockpit length is going to be at the saddle height I use? Reach is important but it does nothing for how is this bike going to fit when seated. After checking Pivot's web site and looking at the picture displaying the geometry the point I am referring to is not in the same location as the picture hear on vitalmtb. But to my point I wish we could get dimension for actual cockpit length at a given saddle height. I have found two mfg's giving the effective top tube length at two different saddle heights. I appreciate there effort in giving more info to us trying to decide how a bike may fit.

DOWN TO THE WIRE! Enduro World Series Northstar Race Show

Too bad for Sam that the race is not decided based on average finish position of each stage. Sam beat out Ritchie in that. It is also interesting that Sam and Ritchie are the only two to take a first place in a stage and Sam finishing either 1st or 2nd. Sam racing for the overall and Ritchie has nothing to loose and can go all out. Great racing!

I am on the same page. You would think that MFG's as large as Specialized would be able to offer better values than small boutique builders but that is not the case. How much of what you would spend on say an S-build goes to support the massive amounts of dollars Spesh spends on teams and sponsorship?

26" 2.35 and 2.6 in DH-27.5 2.35 and 2.6 in DH-29" 2.35 in DH I imagine the 2.35 since his bike is a 29er. Schwalbe's 2.35 run big.

It does not use two dampers. One will be a damper and one is just an empty shock body to mount the spring to when you see two bodies.
