Added a comment about press release Cane Creek's Helm Offers Travel For Every Terrain 8/23/2018 7:52 AM

I went a whole year without servicing my Cane Creek Helm (air). I had it set to 140mm mode, I put it through the paces at from Pisgah NC, to some of Whistler's toughest trails; I rode it during hot summer days as well as below-freezing New England conditions and after a full year of abuse, it was still working beautifully. I'm honestly not sure what more you could ask for.

I don't want to be overly negative, but I feel like Kona really need to work on their industrial design language. I know that there are a lot of other important factors to consider when choosing a bike, but it does play a big role when it comes to making such a major purchase.

Added a new video The Mini Booter: This Jump Is Hucking Tiny!!! 6/26/2017 1:28 PM

Ever wanted an MTB jump you could just cary around? I did too. Meet the Mini booter. Part bike jump, part backpack. It may only been 4 inches tall, but it gets the job done. This is a video I've been wanting to make for a while. I originally was going to use an x-factor ramp I found at the dump a few years ago, but I wanted something a bit more portable. The nails at the beginning were supposed to be to anchor the ramp down to the ground so it didn't slide. I forgot them when I went to go film *face palm*. The editing style at the beginner of the video is heavily inspire by Casey Neistat and the video premise was heavily inspired by Chris Akrigg. Thanks for watching! Music: some random song from Audioblocks. "That-Old-Skool-Funk-Vibe-Full-Mix" -

I wholeheartedly disagree: drunkwarner and freecaster made racing great again.

Digging this podcast (especially good audio!)

Quick story, when I finished on the podium at the 2011 Nat champs, Ducan gave me one of the most sincere handshakes and congrats I've experienced. It was my first Pro national result so it was a big deal for me. It was the only interaction I've had with Ducan, but it felt very genuine. I made it a point to return the favor to other riders down the line, his small gesture but it made a big impact.

Added a new video How to Scrub Jumps like a Boss 2/27/2017 8:14 AM

Let's be honest, a good scrub is one of the dopest skills out there. While they look stylish, they are practical. In this video we'll be taking a look a how to Scrub jumps like a pro. Scrubbing a jump is similar to whips, but is used to stay low unlike whips which are just for style. Scrubs came from Motocross, and is often called a bubba scrub. Mountain bikers scrub jumps for the same reason, but scrubbing also looks dope!
