I don't think Spomer was getting defensive or took it the wrong way, just pointing out where the skew may come from, the actual audience of riders. I think this is a really good topic for discussion. I hope/dont think Vital has the pompous/condescending ... more »

Personal opinion, the writing in MBA isnt great and the photos typically are pretty tame. Decline uses the best paper and puts high quality images in there and has guest writers from pro riders who write editorials or event write ups. Decline is the ... more »

Wow, ya lost me, im not sure what trails you are talking about. look into shutting betasso connector trail on wednesdays when the upper loop is closed. Aside from that, sol vista opens in a few months

Breaking of the balls is possible as well. Its good to see more people submitting videos and photos on here. The more content the better. Pretty cool that its the off season and Spomer and Turman are posting up almost daily.

I have some colors in mind. Actually found some colors through one of the powder manufacturers. Basically looking for a purple pearl. The ones I have been looking at are two coat colors with a chrome base

Thanks Eason. I will be doing a brand new frame that has been painted. I will probably be letting the company that powders it, strip it. I will definitely hit up those guys and see about getting some help.

Reply to HELP. Headset broke off in head tube 1/24/2010 7:18 AM

Yes, I had a Chris King do this. If you do not have the proper headset removal tool, take it to a shop so you dont damage the headtube when popping it out. Have them check your headtube to ensure its not ovalized. This can happen over time or from a ... more »

Reply to how heavy? 1/23/2010 3:41 PM

Completely dependent upon the build. build to suit. I had a santa cruz bullit for a long time that started as a 44 pound full bore freeride/dh bike, that converted eventually to a 36 pound freeride bike with a dope build. The geometry, travel, and fork ... more »

Reply to Slopestyle bikes 1/23/2010 3:39 PM

The stinky is a bit on the long travel side for legitimate slopestyle contests. What kind of riding are you looking to do? If you want a full blown contest ready slopestyle bike, the Porter, Transition Double, Killswitch and a lot of other bikes are ... more »

Nick Simcik likes Joel's style

Reply to Style or tech tricks 1/19/2010 1:04 PM

The only style I care about is Joel Alamo's! Haha I think Semenuk is probably the rider with the most tech tricks and style mixed into one. Watching him and Watts at every contest this year was rad, They were riding a level above everyone.
