Italian houses aswell. San Romolo perhaps? Canyon, Madison Saracen, Santacruz and a lot of others are regularly there to get their DH testing going.

WTF. The hucks are big enough without the added consequence of all the runouts in over half of those. Threading the needle at 30 mph after hucking 25 ft stair gaps is straight up gnarly. That bridge drop to pole tag to head smash at the end was...more

Surprised at the average household income of vital readers...I thought we were a bunch of knuckledraggers...

Added a comment about feature 2020 Norco Sight - We Ride the Radical New Geometry of this Next-Generation Trail Bike 11/2/2019 10:37 AM

So to me that bike looks more of a „short travel“ enduro then a trailbike. Am I completeley wrong with that?
When I look especially at the geometry of the 29“ version, I see a rather agressive race bike. The size large has pretty much the same numbers as the Specialized enduro and 150mm rear suspension has proven to be able to win the nastiest of EWS races.
Really interested on this bike as an allmountain weapon for the alps. Definitely a fan of the geometry. Waiting for a long term review.

Well if you can spare 5 minutes, it's still worth reading the rest. Yes, it's not quite as sticky in terms of pure surface grip, but once you have just a bit of pressure on the pedal, it digs in. I'm pretty sensitive to having my feet move around on my pedals, if I...more

Ha! The key to aging with grace is looking terrible from a young age... then the bar is already low. You too bud, you know where to find me when you have a minute to ride.

Weird and expensive. For every enduro sold how much is going to that ridiculous video? On a unit to unit basis, its more than $1. Over produced. Next to no riding. The story sucked.

Added reply in a thread Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 8/16/2019 12:47 PM

The right way would be to get the fork upside down and loosen the bolts, so that build up air pressure can exit. Some do it by sticking a cable tie between the stanchions and the dust seals. Not recommended though.

Added reply in a thread Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 8/16/2019 12:32 PM

Serious question: Did you release built up air from your fork? Riding hard day after day causes higher pressure in the fork which rellay is affecting the performance. That‘s why the Fox40 has these pressure release knobs on their casting. Apart from ... more »

That thing will obviously be released during Crankworx. Current Stumpjumer EVO geometry is the basis I think. Looks very much like I want to have it honestly. ;-)
