I am surprised this hasn't been said earlier, as this is one of the more interesting parts in the history of our still young sport; how the top marketable athlete at the time used whatever he had handy (in this case a borrowed sharpie) as leverage in

Reply to 26 vs 29-inch wheeled DH bike comparison photo 6/21/2019 1:58 PM

Sorry, but I highly doubt there was any riding in Seasons done on bars slimmer than 710 mm, honestly. It was the mid 2000's, people were riding over 700 mm already, but not much. Now back to this cool thread!

Reply to Dual crown forks in enduro soon? 6/11/2019 5:23 AM

I have ridden that bike for a good while and, as everybody knows, the Specialized designed/Fox produced fork and shock were awful, to put it mildly. The fork was just too complicated on the inside and the huge amount of seals created bonus friction. ... more »

Reply to Would You Pay to Watch More World Cup DH on Red Bull TV? 6/3/2019 3:33 AM

As far as I am concerned, things are like this: I would pay the full 99 USD, if that was the only option. Even if I live in rather poor country and it's probably more of an effort than for people who have normal wages in Western countries. Why? Because

I need to put them on the bike first, then take some decent photos, then upload them to the bikecheck section, then hope someone appreciates. I can't do it overnight, but it'll be worth the wait, I promise! :D Sorry, for going off-topic, I'm shutting ... more »

WORD! In other news that nobody cares about, I have custom Pentagram Eagle decals and Hanneman stickers for my M9... (whistling emoji)

@spomer, regarding Phil: It's pretty much earned, as those Cube bikes are ugly AF since a while now and they deserve the punishment! I guess we all hope to see more of that! :D

I know, but I couldn't help noticing. And couldn't help commenting there too.

Don't worry, Spomer. The Other Site made sure it compiled this thread.

Definitely! Benefiting for free from the buzz of the moment, social media done right.

Are you sure you are not talking about Gravity Group, the team of 2006-2007 with Filip Polc, that ran Turners, FSA parts and sported red gear, before he got on Yeti? I'm 99% sure he wasn't on Global.

Actually she's VERY factory YT too, just not on the Mob, that is a different program, They made her a custom Worlds bike, which is as factory as it gets. It has been well documented everywhere. Some pages back, someone said that the Mob will be supporting ... more »

How about a smooth fit? I have no clue how well Robot Bike Co. was doing, but I dare assume that the Atherton name carries a bit more notoriety than the initial one, so why have two names doing the same thing? Only to cannibalize themselves? Dave Weagle

I am not sure I have read anything about Gwin having ownership in anything else except the TEAM. Am I wrong? And, by the way, who are the owners of Intense as of right now, percentage-wise? Does Jeff still own a slice or is he just CEO and mastermind? ... more »

Yep, Maxxis did a great job bringing quality tires to everybody, but the truth is that the High Roller, Minion DHR and Minion DHF were nothing but rip-offs of Michelin's Comp 16, 24 and 32 with some tweaks here and there. The Comp 24 actually goes WAY

Thank you!

It just occurred to me: what happens to Mille Johnset? She was supported by the Athertons and doing pretty neat last season. I believe she will be in the Women Elite this year, but on what team? Does anyone have a clue?
