Added reply in a thread Michelin tires thread! 11/12/2020 1:27 AM

I tried out the E-wild tyres recently, great profile and grip. But I consider it too soft for a rear tyre (especially considering it is an e-bike rear specific one), I wore out the thread so fast over a month or two this summer. Punctured it despite ... more »

Added reply in a thread Fox Defend Fire Pants vs Flexair Pro Fire Alpha Pants? 11/4/2020 1:31 PM

I have the flexair pant and they are my favourite riding gear I own. Somehow lighter and more comfortable than shorts. Not really that breathable, I use them in cooler conditions mostly. Only negative is the ankle is very tight and above the knee is ... more »

As a Shimano brake evangelist, I must admit my SRAM codes and guide REs that came on my last 2 bikes have been perfectly functional. Top tip: stay 1 number of gears less than the current maximum. I rode 10speed 11-36 cassettes until 2 years ago, now ... more »

Haha, I came to redirect the thread but seem to have been beaten to the finish. Commencal 2020: it isn't the ugliest kit ever but the main team (daprela, Nicole...) Have these ugly purple chest with black sleeves, not feeling it. For Lousa it seems the ... more »

Slightly off topic, but a quick note regarding a few "bike parks are too easy, think of the children" comments: Oisin O'Callaghan who just swept junior WC DH grew up at the bottom of Ireland's (possibly the world's) easiest bike park (his dad was involved ... more »

The plastic piece of protection bolted/glued to the bottom of the downtube that goes from the BB up about halfway the DT. It serves to protect your frame from rocks thrown up by the front wheel. It's purpose is exactly the same as a wrap.

Thank you for clarifying exactly which part of your sentence was the insult, and throwing another one in there for good measure. I'm not particularly bothered, just a bit thrown back at how polarized and aggressive people are getting about completely inconsequential things.

Can't believe this is still being debated... So let's throw another view into the void. Rules are rules, but they shouldn't be applied in an algorithmic manner. Upon breach the incident should be reviewed by a human and then a decision made. In this ... more »

Added reply in a thread Are Global DH Bikes Sales Falling? 10/20/2020 12:33 AM

Maybe the "DH is the formula one of MTB" isn't such a simplistic saying after all. After the grim donut video, I read a few comments saying brands should build up race specific one off bikes... Looking at those numbers it seems to almost be the case. ... more »

I got double whammy of grief from friends because I have an eMTB and I bought a ridewrap kit for my levo SL, it looks amazing (matte finish) and is protecting my frame from the wicked sharp brush we have in so cal. I am glad I purchased.
