It doesn't get much better than the Beach Boys making a song for an engine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GHRJCcCYAF4 ...well, maybe Jaya The Cat singing about an El Camino or Primus dubbing the ballad of a 4-4-2 driver!

A lot of trust and loyalty around those Andorran offices, eh?

Still about 14.000 times better than the super creative 36, 40, 32... But maybe it's my fault that I can't stand these alphanumerical creations, although I'm willing to give some a pass: M3, ZL-1... :D Speaking of names, weren't the old RockShox ”trim” ... more »

I just remembered the Suntour/Braun electric shifting system of the late 80's, where a quarter of the chainring was moving. I could be wrong on the exact name, but that was the principle. Will look it up, but now it's time to ride! Mx

Don't you believe Shimano know this and are already in the works with this since probably a few years now? No to mention the fact that Saint is already pretty old and still relevant. Shifter and derailleur are okay (it's a DH bike grouppo, you don't ... more »

On a Bronson with ”Charles” in Santa Cruz font on the down tube, please! :D

Same here, 191 cm on an L sized Mondraker Foxy XR alloy that felt like a blessing from the very beginning and still seems like that. Dropper is standard 150 mm and it's enough.

Am I the only one who is rolling his eyes at the industry's April Fools ”jokes” of every year? They are cringe-worthy like few other things...

I'm sure you mean the late 00's and early 2010's! :D

You can laugh at me, but 13 winters ago it was bought as a budget item for what was to become my first proper DH bike. It was put on a way too small for me '99 GT Lobo frame (I'm 6 foot 3) and was run with a mixture of old and new parts. The frame already ... more »

I don't exactly know how we got to OG Super T's and Mr. T's, but if this isn't the place to brag that I own a polished OG Super T just like the one above, then where? :D Mine came from a Sintesi Bazooka (I have no clue what happened to it) and it initially

Why didn't they use the 20 mm axle that everybody was happy with, then? Remember 20 mm Reba's?

...and know all the experts on The Other Site (and their endurocats) have opinions about what a pro mountainbiker is and isn't supposed to be doing in the off-season and how dirtjumping ”doesn't help at all” in downhill. * rolls eyes *

There is Jack's interview on The Other Site that keeps cranking ”articles” out of this thread. My take between the lines: - Gwin can screw a team's vibe up pretty bad 🤢 - Intense had the most fun team out there and they decided to kill it because of ... more »

Don't forget that Palmer was sporting only short Stinger visors on his custom lids and Peaty had them too on a few of his own. I have a black chrome one on my '05 D2 Flash, I don't know it it's quicker, but damn it looks good! :D
