I couldn't tell you, but I'm just glad they showed it. If there was one thing I wanted from this episode, it was a Marshy rear wheel slam. They more than delivered!!

Can we get Greg and Marshy to go over the "pick up the back wheel and throw it down suspension test?" How often is it done? What % of the time is Greg unhappy with it?

Hearing Greg saying this is the bike I should've been riding 15years ago is just how I feel seeing these beautiful big wheeled flying machines!

Yeah. The flat thing is interesting. You'd think these guys would run more on the side of not wanting to flat than push the envelop. More air? I mean I got sick of flatting my rear all the time, so I run 5 more PSI than I ideally want to. Not the best, but better than flatting and denting rims...

In DH it's little easier to keep track of the rocks that can cause you a problem becuase its easier to remember the details of the track. I feel like you have more "oh shit" moments over a 9 stage race where you'd want an extra level of safety

Hey Guys, thought I'd add a few comments on the technical details of the bike. The upper shock hardware is designed with an inner sleeve (small part #7), like a thru-axle front hub, to prevent binding if the upper shock bolt is over-torqued. I've attached a photo of the...more

^^ Surprised the UCI isn't all about the commissionaire at the finish to grease an extra 20K in fees for hosting a WC

If we are going to say we need different classes, then Spomer are you saying that 29ers so much faster that you can't have a fair race? I fee like the 250 v 450 argument is that a race between the two bikes is that it's simply not a fair race so you ... more »

Unreal. Great having WC DH back. Track looks awesome.

I'm curious if the 29ers end up helping in the wet. Tough to get faster than Danny in wet, but have to think you may get a little more grip

Also compare this to other rich guy lifestyle sports, like golf or skiing, and it isn't so bad. It sucks, but it's pretty comparable on a year to year basis. Especially compared to riding or driving anything with a motor. If I ever hear...more

Awesome! The Pod is excellent and I've really enjoyed it.

One thing that would be a nice add, would be in the description to outline the major topics with a time stamp. Often times I don't have time to listen to the whole hour or so in one sitting. It's nice be able to block out 20 minutes here and there so you don't end up stopping mid-story. Bill Simmons does this pretty well as an example.

Keep up the good work. Great having this Pod in the lineup now!

I think a lot has to do with your body type. For instance, I am 6'2" with a long torso, short legs, and short arms given my height. I have been flopping between XL and L bikes and have settled in on the shorter length. The issue for me is that when the ... more »

Added a comment about video Why Does Curtis Keene Prefer Coil Suspension? Vital B-Sides 2/14/2017 12:54 PM

Very interesting. I would love to know how much of the difference is noticeable to the average Joey like myself. Curtis is pushing the bike to another level (probably league) and are the differences between coil and air really a that level. While it's cool to say you run the same stuff as the pros, is this an example where what a seasoned pro experiences is just beyond the realm of the rest of us?
