Have you ever heard of a little town called New York City? Might have seen it in the news. There are more bike shops in manhattan alone then your whole state of floriduh. I've been to every shop in the Entire city, all 5 boroughs. If you no speaky english and get paid under the table because of your illegal immigrant status then guess what, your an illegal worker in that shop. Seems like a simple concept but tough for some to grasp I guess. Personally I would like to launch all the immigrants into orbit but thats why I'm not President right lol, lucky for them. If you come here the right way and work there's no problem. Our debt and medical system issues revolve around illegals getting federal subsidies. Then working off the books at your local bike shop. Welcome to the USA.

Ya this is the sad truth. I was a head mechanic for a hot minute and busted my ass creating a customer base of satisfied loyal riders from all backgrounds. The shop owner took notice and ended up doing nothing? So I did nothing and quit. The fact is most bike shops would rather hire an illegal immigrant and pay them under the table then keep a real veteran rider/mechanic on they might have to actually pay for. From a riders perspective who do you want working on your bike- that you depend on for safety and fun? I have my own shop in my house now and will almost never even walk into a bike shop. Buying your own tools is the best way to go, and there are soo many ways to learn how to wrench correctly. Supporting your local shop sometimes means your supporting illegal workers. Meet your mechanic and find out before you go there and get repairs.

That is one juicy setup you got there. The big question is how do you like that Pike vs the BOS fork? It sure as hell looks a lot better on there.

Such a nice new frame from airborne but that huge horrible logo on the down tube ruins it for me. Why don't companies understand less is more. Oh well ,,nothing a trip to the powder coat shop won't fix.

#ThrowbackThursday - 17 Questions: Chad Reed

Chad really took Stewarts lunch at Anaheim 2. He's right about those stupid mistakes James tends to make. One minute he's ripping past everyone next his bike is sideways and bucks him into the hay bails.

Screw sea otter! The big problem I see is that same old UCI bullshit, no race from april to june. Can't find a venue in May, not anywhere??? Maybe have 8-9 DH rounds???? Thats too much work I guess. The last 5 races should be awesome and finally back at Windham, the best in the biz.

It's like walking a tightrope, your not safe until you make it out of the danger zone. By looking at the vid , the traverse going out looks more exposed. The turn is sketchy but as you see there is room for error, if you make it there. Going back is not easy but at least theres a mini ledge to work with. This is more tech than any set of dj's or street move in my opinion, and I seen a bunch!

Thats true deadman riding on a MTB, good stuff. I've been to Sedona walking around on rocks like that and its way more gnarly in person.
