Gratuitous tire violence. Nothing but schralping noises for two minutes straight. SO GOOD.

A few years ago Kitsap County thought mtber’s were meth heads building jumps in the woods. Now there is a trail featured on Vital with sponsorship from Transition. Who would have thunk. Save some berms for the locals!

Not ideal, but remember, your sealant is advertised as being able to seal a 1/4'' hole.... if it can' seal a hole that's 1/1000th of an inch, that's a sealant problem too. It's a slightly porous casing for whatever reason, I must have had this a dozen ... more »

WTF are you talking about worrying about "tracking up lips and landings" because of tires which are too aggressive? 1) that's not really a thing, 2) grip while jumping equals safety.

This is likely utilizing a dynamic idler position. As the suspension compresses the pedal kickback caused by chain growth is counteracted by the idler pulley being 'lifted' off the top-side of the chain. It's probably an easy way to counteract pedal kickback for a low pivot bike... however it's likely not particularly efficient because when the chain is tensioned it will put additional upwards force on that idler which may compress the suspension (a small amount). In future I would bet any money that we'll see a lot more idler pulleys mounted indynamic positions in order to control chain growth and pedal kickback.
