That's heart breaking. When I think of the great times racing on the East coast, I think Ebbet and A. Chase. Rest in Peace friend.

Alternative to cutting lawns: get a job at a bike shop so you can get discounts on bikes

I have one simple question: who the hell decided that Judy DH Red must me a good color for this fork and not the legendary metallic orange that is just as famous as the OG fork??? Who? Who? And WHY???

Hey Jeff, different CSU according to the Vital "First Ride" article linked below:

"the new Z1 houses 36mm stanchions and one of the heftiest crowns found in the industry. The stanchions are made from 6000-series alloy which and are thicker than other 36mm stanchions on the market....more

Pinkbike's, erm, ”information” was pretty much a compilation of what people are talking around here since 15+ pages now.

Sorry to interrupt, but I think it's super ironic that the page that announces our favorite Rat's departure from Santa Cruz has a Santa Cruz ad tailored around him (and that actually mentions his name) in the header.

I am talking about how keen serious riders or privateers were about buying Giants back then vs. nowadays, when they are much better. The comparison is Giants of back then vs. other bikes of back then and Giants of nowadays vs. other bikes of nowadays.

Not a fan of Merida, but with their money they can make anything they want. How good were their road bikes before Lampre and TdF and all that wind tunnel testing? If there is a budget and a team to develop around, I believe pretty much anything can be

I see your point and I mostly agree with it, but no Brit has ever invaded Romania MTB-wise. Yet. We have had Harry Heath and Robert Williams over in 2011, but Harry was a special guest and Rob heard of the race and decided to come along and returned ... more »

The ”they're” bit makes you more legit in English than most native speakers.

Otherwise, I believe a lot of people are aware of this rumour-mill and feed it just for the sake of having fun. You don't thing that the Vital shots in the last couple ... more »

Can anybody explain why there are so many wink-wink hints at the Rat and 420? I mean, he seems like his head is up in the sky, but if you actually talk to him he is focused and clear-minded. I rode the gondola with him at VdS 2 years ago and he made ... more »
