Reply to what are your 2010 biking plans 1/18/2010 10:07 AM

Our schedules are almost the same! Dont forget Ranchstyle. I am also looking to start racing a bit again. Highlands BTW is the most fun course/contest of the year! Also going to Rays in 2 weeks!

Have you not seen Howards insanely dumped 3's or nasty tailwhips?! I havent ridden with Cob, so I dont know about his trick list, but R-Dog throws down!

I think the guys who typically display the most style have the greatest grasp on their bikes and tend to have the tech tricks on lock as well. Style always wins though

Reply to What about all mountain? 1/17/2010 7:37 AM

I would like to see even more big mountain contests, (lots of hiking for those) and more enduro downhills. It would be cool to see more of those in the states like Downieville and Ashland, but more. I think all mountain is the fastest growing and most ... more »

Reply to your dream place to ride 1/14/2010 4:36 PM

I think thats the beauty of mountain bikes. I don't have to have on ideal place. For example, riding the Whole Enchilada in Moab, you start in the mountains, head up to alpine meadow, descend through dense forrest, end up in the desert and then in a ... more »

Thank you for saying it as I was trying to say. 303MTB, take Crazybacon's advice, just go with what is comfortable.

Thats the perfect approach to take! The ranch is a blast. See you there

Each year at ranchstyle, you will see everything from a singlespeed hardtail DJ bike to pro level slopestyle bikes to full on DH race bikes. Run what you have and just get all your tricks dialed in for the event.

Reply to back brake on the left side of the bar? 1/11/2010 4:57 PM

That is a personal set up type of thing. Some guys run it this way so they are used to the front brake on the right like on their dirt bikes. If you are only running one brake and runing it on the left side, it looks weird if you have a shifter on the ... more »

Wow, I am sorry your LBS isn't solid. We have some great LBS's in Colorado. Grassroots Cycles in Grand Junction and the Fix in Boulder immediately come to mind. If they dont have it, they will get it and get it quick. They have the product knowledge ... more »

Didnt you get the memo? VitalMTB is a cover to destroy the local bike shop and eventually the industry. Spomer's goal is to spread his hatred of everything two-wheeled to the world through his evil plan to kill all bike shops and run the industry out ... more »

Reply to are all these grassroots teams killing the our sport? 12/22/2009 2:50 PM

There are quite a few companies who use Grassroots to build rider loyalty and get riders onto their bikes. Many frequently will move riders up through their programs from grassroots to Pro offers and eventually factory. Look at the Yeti set up. They ... more »

Reply to hey everyone, freeriding is legit now! 12/18/2009 4:44 PM

My favorite part of that whole press release is the first sentence. Where they call it "skilled mountain biking. "
