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 »

Bwhahahahahaha, THIS!

...and a part of me wants to see Sunn get back into it too, partnered with BOS Suspension. I've seen their suspension bikes: properly sized, sweet looking! :D I don't see the C-dale thing happening, as GT is their go-to gravity brand. Schwinn-Toyota ... more »

Mnope, not saying that. Everybody should do whatever the hell they want, if it's not harming anyone else and this obviously is not. Actually, while on this subject I might say that THC being on the banned substance list in sports seems just ridiculous,

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 »

Hello Racing Rumors! Missed you!

Reply to 2018 Racing Rumors 8/12/2018 6:34 AM

Well, 60 pages should be enough, right?

Otherwise, it doesn't make sense to me skipping on Vergier either. Why would they? Isn't the Syndicate the most family-like team, where embracing characters is more important than racing results as quick-quick-quick ... more »

My father had one, went through two surgeries, it changed his life to the worse; I know very good what the dangers are. I also know very good how it looks like when people complain about problems that are fabricated and act like their are entitled to ... more »

I started with: - small 16” Russian kids bike with no training wheels and tires with no tubes - custom-made Pegas 26” ladies bike in red, matching rims and wooden grips - 20” Puky kids bike from Germany - supermarket-quality BMX from Germany with chrome

When I read ”Helmet Police” I was hoping this is a thread about all those shitty looking full face helmets out there, but I guess I was wrong. That must be The Helmet FASHION Police.

Otherwise, I feel naked on the mountain, but when I ride ... more »

Yep, they were blue and boring, pretty much like everything Canyon has ever done. Don't get me wrong, I am not judging their quality, but the personality of the brand is similar to that of a teen who is entering Hot Topic for the first time, struggling

Maybe Specialized sued him because he wrote the name of one of their models on them with no explicit written permission.

@Primoz - Of course, it totally makes sense. But I still think a special occasion now and then won't hurt the recognizability of the brand. Speaking of this, besides the black stanchions what do you think makes a RockShox a RockShox, looks-wise? @Big

@peecee I'm totally with you, dude! I think current day RockShox graphics are among the most boring and non-creative I have ever seen, but then again the entire industry is at fault in this respect, if you ask me. I don't know how this exactly works ... more »

Cheers for the answer, Lee! But I am still a tad surprised that there wasn't much branding visible on all that kit... Thanks for the beautiful pictures, Mx

Am I the only one wondering what the deal is with the whole Mondraker team racing in branded Alpinestars gear and Laurie rocking the full Fox kit? I know they have different personal helmet and goggle sponsors, as a lot of athletes do, but this looks

Thank God, if you ask me! I never liked the association between Gwin and TLD. His D3 must have been the most underwhelming signature colorway they ever made and his pants/jersey combo was also rather uninspiring. Nothing against Gwin, but I just didn't

Erm, I love punk rock and I love what Mike Redding has done for our sport, but am I the only one here who has the impression that these Fasthouse guys are trying to pretend they have been around for longer than they have actually been? Also, the style
