Terrible idea. Keep it underground.

Vee Crown Series Tires

no offence to Mr. King, but just because you have a good racing resume, doesn't mean you can design tires. Seriously, this industry needs to get away from getting pro riders to 'develop' tires. There are many nobodies out there who have more knowledge on tire design.

Added a comment about video Gee Atherton Runs His Fork Stiff! Crankworx L2A GoPro Run 7/9/2014 9:14 AM

just like in MX, you want to go fast, run your fork stiff. It allows you to skip over ruts rather than dive into them. It feels really uncomfortable and forces you ride faster because they barely work going slow!

When I was co-organizing races we'd always find enough vollies for marshalls. If it wasn't family or friends, we'd have to sometimes really bribe people to get out. Buy them lunch, keep them hydrated, free t-shirt, beer - basically anything they wanted ... more »

Added reply in a thread Why are flat tires something we still see these days? 6/27/2014 9:13 AM

That system looks like it will work well in mountain biking. It is based off of Nuetec's TuBliss system for dirtbikes. They were trying to develop it a few years ago, but obviously it didn't happen. From my experience using the moto version, when it ... more »

It would be hard for me to give up on running tubeless (13th year!) but I would like to try this anyway.

Added reply in a thread Who would win? Sam Hill vs Nico Vouilloz in their prime 6/19/2014 7:42 AM

Perhaps I was too harsh. Sam Hill is one of the all time greats. His accomplishments on the bike are legendary. By saying 'one trick pony' I was referring to him being very good on steep technical tracks and not so good on flatter pedally tracks.

Liked a comment on the item 7 Things the Leogang World Cup Taught Me 6/17/2014 6:08 PM

Lot people always complain about wanting tracks that are "legit downhill tracks."

What is a "legit downhill" track? Should there not be high speed sections? Motorways with big tables? Should every track can be full on gnar and insanely technical the entire time?
