Added reply in a thread Will Lack of MTB Products Make You Ride More Cautiously? 5/5/2021 1:03 PM

I'm running tire inserts on my light wheels, where I didn't before. Just in case wheels are scarce - I want to keep these ones intact!

Some of us think that mostly any fork from a major brand works well enough and that unless you are a WC rider it is not the fork that is making you slow but your skills. If you are pretentious enough to think it is the gear that is really slowing you down in 2021 then keep spending...more

Such a shame he doesn't like doing interviews because he is such a laugh to listen to.

Suprisingly tolerant answers regarding emtb and flow trails (considering how hardcore he is regarding pedals).

Sam, I live in Calgary and still haven't ridden where the world cup race was. I can see why it's on the list of places that shouldn't host a WC.

I’m also on an ESD and can agree with other comments, it’s a super fun bike and the El Roy must ride very similarly. That price jack on the El Roy is crazy though: +$800 or 29% increase over the original cost?! And $3500 for deore drivetrain and M420 brakes? Hopefully the price increase...more

I also prefer a fixed chainstay - more reliable to me, compared to just about any adjustable I have used.

Skeen does make a valid point about the price increase though. And, I bet Marin will still sell each and every last one.

This is good, but I'm more interested in which website Vital is going to start a war with?!?

As a serial decal remover, I am happy when it's not a waterslide decal. I don't like looking like Ricky Bobby, with a giant Wonderbread ad on my bike.

I’ll admit that I’m a fan. I’m on my second set of wheels from them (27.5 and now 29).
In a podcast, Dustin (the owner) said something along the lines of you want lighter, there are other option for you. They designed the rims for the ride quality and the durability.

Espresso is one of my favs when passing through North Van. I always make time for it as a lunch lap before passing through to squamish and beyond. One if the most smiles for miles trails I've ever ridden. Turn your brain off and enjoy.
