Honestly, I don't know why I felt what I felt from the rear of the bike. The usual suspects are absent when looking at the kinematics.

Maybe it was the wheel path, but I've ridden other bikes with very similar wheel paths without noting this sort of anemic-ness (its a word) from the...more

Do you think the harshness is because the wheelpath seems almost totally forward? A decade ago when i had to short-shock all of my trailbikes to get decent geo, the square edge performance always sucked afterward.

I don't give a damn about the bikes, I just want those elbow pads, that chest protector, and the sheer bravery to wear a half face like that

I don't think they really need to do much. Maybe as simple as modernizing the geometry and kinematics on the baseline catalogue frame designs, then redesigning the marketing to sell enough for the custom order MoQs. I'm sure their vendor has capable ... more »

So based on this comment, it looks like the KHS thing is real? Noticed AG following KHS on IG but not Intense. Maybe KHS working on a B2C strategy for N.A. YT compete?

Not sure if it's been stated already. If any joker from Wada, etc is sharing preliminary info with their dipshit friends - especially those who post (or tease) unverified rumors on the internet, that should raise bigger questions about the legitimacy ... more »

The wheels are so small. How do you even ride that without going OTB?

To clarify - by "ground up" you mean that by literally grinding up an existing reverb, we'd have a higher functioning product?

Based on my experience with reverbs, that makes sense....

This might sound really weird but i think it should make sense to others given the Watson jump... I feel like if you don't get bucked and ejected upon landing, you half-assed your TDF jump. I hope the rider in the photo a) is actually shirtless; b) got ... more »

First Foes ive seen since the old Mono that I immediately wanted to know more about.

Attractive & practical with what seems like current geo. I like it! Would love to buy a made in the USA AL frame for a future bike. I have no qualms with globalization, but it always made me feel good to see the "Made in USA" on my old DHR.

They're not getting my money! I don't wanna pay $90 per tire to die - then have them cover it up for 20yrs.

Everyone should know by now that EU anti-trust (and anti-dumping, and illegal subsidy) laws only apply to US corporations.

This deal is too small to gain any attention anyway, I just hope CRC keeps the under-US-wholesale pricing on Shimano.

Wow, I am so proud to be an owner of a Transition Bike with the way the company has clearly valued Diversity and Inclusion through building bikes for those even suffering from Age and Height disabilities!

Little known fact, those trees in the background are actually only about 30cm tall... talk about a pint-size shredder! Another little known fact, the rider was actually born earlier than the rocks in the background... how's that for Trail Wisdom!

Added a comment about video Nate Hoch in Christchurch 3/1/2012 9:46 AM

Tom Petty saw Nathan ride that skinny and was so impressed he granted Nate music rights for his entire catalog of songs.

Is that 10 year old on the Sunday still there? I hope he never grew up, trapped at age 10 for eternity, but still riding way faster than us. Glad you cleared that 50ftr. Everything sure looks different not being 2 bottles of Sav deep and hopped up on fake ecstasy!

PS, Nate wasn't chasing the sheep. Nate sometimes thinks he is a sheep. That arm waving was his way of presenting.

----------------------------------

Nathan was driving through ChCh with his GF Leila, when they spotted a Burger Fuel. Leila was starving because Nathan ate ALL their food (again), so she asks Nathan:

"Can you make a U-Turn?"

Never caught off-guard, Nathan looks at her with a stone-cold countenance and replies,

"Make her turn?? I could make her eyes water"
