How amazing would it be if you could teleport a 2001 Fabian Barel on a Kona Stab to a modern day race. Maybe not a World Cup, but something like Crankworx Canadian Open. Where would he be results-wise? How about 2007 Sam Hill? How about 1998 Nico Vouillouz? ... more »

I might have to try this, as I've had some MT7 Trails sitting in a box for a few years. I loved the power, but getting a good bleed was hard and the pads always rubbed.

"This practical guide applies to equipment used in road, track and cyclo-cross events." It's my understanding that none of this stuff applies to MTB, thus why you don't see "UCI Approved" stickers on production mountain bikes like you do on road and ... more »

He's probably suggesting that Covid will continue to present challenges to global travel, large-scale events, etc. for at least a few more years. Because of that, it's harder for racers to ink sponsorship and endorsement deals with brands. Marketing ... more »

C'mon Chaz, it's a $40 tool or $75 universal kit for press-fit BBs.

One nice thing about PF shells is that you can put the ISCG-05 tabs further out, so you don't have to run a million spacers and long bolts to get your chainguide lined up with SB chainlines.

I can confirm. I really enjoyed going back and forth with them for a week via e-mail just to be allowed to race amateur national champs. You'd have thought I was trying to gain access to the Vatican's secret archives the way they were protecting registration. ... more »

I would 100% try one of these if they weren't so expensive. $350 is pretty steep. But, they're seemingly everywhere on the race circuit....

That's too much sag, especially for a 190mm travel fork on what I presume is a very slack bike. How are you measuring that?

So many dumb takes yesterday on social media about "roadies who can't ride REAL mtb" and the like. Clearly he just made a mistake, it happens...even to the best. I think it would be really rad if more towns and cities invested in awesome, dedicated XCO

Wow, I didn't know about Matt and Jeff's concussion history.

I've had a very similar concussion background but I'm even older than Matt at 55. Matt might remember that iat Mt Snow in 1999 every pro qualified for the finals because I knocked myself out in for 5 minutes in...more
