Added reply in a thread Need Info On Knee Pads!!!! 10/7/2019 4:40 AM

I have more or less hated the last 2 pairs I bought (G-form and Specialized), so ended up going back to some older IXS pads that are quite comfortable. From my point of view the main issue is that most kneepads these days are going for over 100$ and ... more »

Also it is the worst time of the 3 men teams that count, so basically 2/3 are riding for fun, and one poor dude is putting it it all on the line for his country!

I like it, but wish it was more expensive.

Very nice, but feels more like next year's team edition than a world's bike...

Added reply in a thread Tire Compound: What are top enduro guys running? 8/29/2019 2:41 AM

Not exactly in the same spirit, but I have been looking for a heavy/tough tyre for bikepark runs wit harder compounds: it is really hard to find a DH or even DD/SG type tyre with any of the harder compounds. My main motivation here is "not throwing out ... more »

Added reply in a thread How many pros CAN'T manual? 8/2/2019 1:19 AM

Depends on the discipline really, my guess is that many XC pros can't manual over a few meters, some top enduro riders have mentioned things along those lines (FBM said he can't manual, Jerome Clementz said he wanted to learn how to whip). For those ... more »

Not sure about his settings, but the back to back comparison of him vs the commencal rider at 3.13 is mind blowing, the bulldog seems to hit 5x as many compressions and swerve to hit a few extra ones just in case

Added reply in a thread Interesting read about cheap, rentable e-scooters and the Repo man 7/26/2019 11:56 AM

Nope, in Warsaw right now and the sidewalks are flooded with them, many lying flat on the ground or blocking the way, riders fly by on the sidewalks... People are inconsiderate everywhere...

Added a comment about feature What Do Riders Think? Seven Lock-On Grips Reviewed by Vital MTB Members 7/26/2019 5:35 AM

My commencal came with shaped grips somewhat similar to the ergon, as a purist I scoffed at them, but actually love them now and bought ergons as replacement which I also find very comfortable. Don't knock it until you try it

Don’t like teletubby look. Trails are raw and rough. These are done blind while out working. Sorry for the low fi production. It’s a hero 7

Typically something equivalent to exo up front and something closer to DD out back. I run a Huck Norris in the rear because I broke my first Chinese carbon rim, the second held up well thanks to the HN. Ridding a full DH tyre on the rear of my ebike ... more »

To be fair, I don't think that many people are excited about 2k wheels, hence the price drop...
