Added reply in a thread Are today's entry level DH bikes as good as high end of the past? 9/14/2018 7:41 AM

This is a really interesting question. Personally, I like having all of the adjustments of high-end suspension today mostly because its fun to puzzle around with it but as far as having a DH bike that is easy to setup and ride there's a lot to be said ... more »

I agree this predictability things is a big deal, but this appeared work incredibly well for the first go.

I wonder if in the future they will offer more a "gravity" setting where more emphasis is placed on the angle of the bike (i.e. going down) and have more of delay towards flat/uphill settings in their algorithm.

I think the power down into a big hole test was most relevant to my riding style

Added reply in a thread How would you stop Richie from flatting? 8/17/2018 8:44 AM

The insert stuff definitely helps, but this is ultimately the issue. You can't simply mash over anything in your way. I ripped a tire last night simply because I rode a dumb line. Total buzzkill for the post work ride, but I simply picked an awful line. ... more »

Good catch. Haha. Can't have Eddie repping huffy level products. haha

I really hope Eddie doesn't sign with Rebull. That would be a bummer. Now that he's a top 10 guy, Eddie needs a way more "bougie" helmet sponsor to fit his brand. I'm thinking something like Audi or Breville that fits in with the mid-30s enduro guy with ... more »

General Lee's comment in the 2018 rumors about salaries is interesting. In inside line pod with Whitely, he mentioned that viewership is up, etc. with the stream and what not; is that playing a bigger role in increasing salaries? If salaries are up 20% ... more »

I love that we have options. I also love swanky rad stuff. Cool to see Shimano doing something new!

Added a comment about feature Vital MTB Face Off: The Best Flat Pedal Shoes 7/27/2018 7:44 AM

iceman, I have experienced the same type of longevity as you mentioned here. One thing I did notice when I had a pair that lasted around 14-16 months of riding is that I think the stiffness of the shoe became a little weaker but at that point the shoe had really been through the ringer.
