Reply to HELP: Noise from rear Axle when pedaling 10/10/2020 12:40 PM

I've worked at trek dealers for the last 3 years. The newer alloy fuel ex bikes are an absolute joke of noise. Trek ships the bikes with all the pivot hardware as dry as humanly possible. Worked on one last week that had so many noises. My best advice ... more »

I'd recommend the specialized any day. If you were looking at the e bike version of the trance it would be a harder call. Giants "stance" line is their super low end. That means it has "flex point" suspension and very dated geometry. Flex point suspension ... more »

Did you ride in cold weather? I've seen the issue a few times, it could be what Ryan mentioned above, but two of my customers had it happen due to weather. Both went out in 32-40 deg weather. The first time it happened I called RS and they said their ... more »

I commuted on a dirt jumper for like 3 years in college. Started on K-rads. They are okay, but that's the best I can describe them. Okay. The most durable tire I'm aware of that you mentioned is the hookworm, but they'll add some weight. They are like ... more »

Reply to Santa Cruz Chameleon...what's next?! 1/20/2020 8:20 PM

I've got a 2019 stumpy short travel 29, put some heavy wheels and a cane creek helm at 140mm up front. Sitting at a 66 degree HA. It shreds. The suspension kinematics aren't technically the best, but I hopped on the bike and felt at home instantly. I'm ... more »

Reply to riding solo in predator territory 11/28/2019 10:16 AM

One of my favorite trails here in Colorado is called "nice kitty" because of all the big cats they saw while building the trail system. When I moved out and saw stuff like that I read up on what to do when you encounter different wildlife. I also carry ... more »

I slap my ears a lot.

Reply to Three-Quarter Lids: Gimmick or Cool? 10/2/2019 11:44 PM

It's a preference thing. I like 3/4. I like having the back of my head and ears covered. I'm an ear slapper when I crash and my switchblades (never run the chin bar on them) have saved my ears a few times. Why not feel as safe as I wanna when riding ... more »

Reply to Intense Tazer vs Spec. Turbo Levo...??? 5/25/2019 12:02 AM

The other thing to think about, I'm sure intense is great with service, but working for specialized dealers these last few years they have been exceptional. I haven't had to work on their ebikes much, but when I do it ain't bad. I've done wiring harness ... more »

Based on Ray George (who was recently picked up by Hyper) commenting "I wonder" on TVS's post I'd guess he'll be joining his brother on Hyper.

I'm a Mountain biker, it's my only thing. I don't run, trail run, I hike every now and then a and throw a leg over a dirt bike when I can, but more than anything I'm a Mountain biker. That being said my first year was pretty rough. I was 15, I got an ... more »

Reply to Little Black Book (of bikes) | Can you remember all your mountain bikes? 7/31/2018 2:14 PM

My first real bike was age 14 my dad have me his old 1997 Cannondale Super V freeride edition. For my 16th birthday my parents bought me my first bike. I've paid for everything after that. Bikes appear in order obtained: 2002 Intense M1 2010 Haro Porter ... more »

Lol he didn't cover the Wu Dropper post. Working for a spesh dealer I'm stoked Joel Anderson will be on board. Love watching him ride.

Did anyone notice the rider at worlds that had tape over most sponsors on his Jersey? I can't remember who it was, I just remember it being a pretty big name rider and being shocked.

Reply to Electric VS normal enduro bike 12/12/2016 11:30 PM

I work at a shop that carries Spec, when the Levo came out I was like everyone else and thought it was cheating and stupid blah blah blah. My manager let me take one out a demo it. It was really fun. We rode in a gully where there's a lot of steep ups ... more »

Could be Carson Storch, who lives in Oregon, picked up red bull a few weeks ago, and just posted a photo on his own instagram of himself riding a maiden... But I guess Gwin could have gone to Oregon, picked up a giro helmet and taken a maiden for a spin. ... more »

The Sensus facebook page just said: "There is gonna be one hell of an announcement tomorrow in the mountain bike world. It involves the fastest man on the planet and a new team..." Wonder what that means....
