I will barge in with a slice of my personal experience in this regard, not sure how much it helps. Context is this: I live in an area where most trails are difficult, we used to ride our DH bikes much more in the past, at some point we lost shuttling ... more »

My personal friend and riding buddy is @endlessbikes. He lives in Golden Colorado and and I am not far away in Denver. While his bike is super sexy and rides awesome, this one is pretty sweet as well. Pretty much same drivetrain and suspension with exception of the cranks.
And as a note, I have traveled extensively...more

How do you know all the downvotes for your comment are from the US? And, any build is all show, until someone puts a leg over it. That said, I agree, the idiocracy is definitely contagious.

I am also very curious about Marshy, as he is a very likeable guy and the Syndicate like a family. When I read about his retirement, I thought he was tired of the circuit life, but apparently not... Probably the man has bills to pay and royalties from ... more »

@rockchomper: I ran the Michelin Wild Rock'R2 in Gum-X compound on the rear of my enduro bike and it's been a very good tire. It's also not very expensive, I guess. However, this is not a DH casing tire and I am running it with CushCore, which is the ... more »

Goddamn it, another assignment! I need to dig up my tape recorder (sic), but let's see what can be done! :D I know that the media bubble is different from the riders' bubble and I'm in this last one. Never thought about it this way...

By the way, thanks for all the nice stuff you guys have brought us throughout the years. The Vital feed is the daily World Cup bread for many a hardcore fan in every race. I tip my hat to you!

Oh, sorry! It seems I forgot about how you're supposed to get the audio for the slideshows, stupid me. I know about the mega lockdown, as I am here in Leogang with our federation, trying to poach some shots myself. I just hope the UCI doesn't fine me for all the, erm, ”video” on the Instastories these days, or I'll end up a broke man! smile)) Cheers for clearing it up, Spomer!

we had one for finale EWS and are doing them when we can. covid has made access to the riders for interviews a lot tougher. w/o audio, we don't use slideshow format. world champs is on mega lockdown

Erm, what happened to the trademark Vital slideshows? Honest question, I miss them.

In case it wasn't obvious from my first comment, I tip my hat to you, dude! Much Love from Romania! In case you ever take a trip over here, holler and you get free housing, food and guiding, plus the sight of a shitload of old bikes and parts that struggle to become a museum. Spomer must have my e-mail, just in case, offer applies to him or any other VitalMTB staff member too.

Thanks VitalMTB for what you are doing for the community! This feature and its comment section are yet another proof why this sport is so fucking great. Chapeau!
