A snapped frame based upon that crash is not a surprise in the least. Between the g-out, highside, and his legs slingshotting that into the tree, what could be expected of it? Glad Greg is OK. What is even more amazing. Doug put together a new frame ... more »

It is pretty damn steep from what I have seen. Kenny Smith rode it a few years ago for a SRAM ad I believe

Looks like just a scratch.

2012 Cadillac CTS V Wagon though I picked up a pick up last fall so it is less frequently used for shuttling

I have been loving my Canfield Riot. The rear end works incredibly well through the rough and nasty, jumps well, and really enjoying the short chainstays

Qualifying was actually seeding. All invited riders were qualified for finals. Everyone except Sam took a seeding run, since he didn't he was seeded last and ran first in finals.

Just scoped the course today, to say its steep would be a HUGE understatement. its insane, and awesome. Some of the rocks/corners/lines are gnarly. Definitely stoked for the event and practice tomorrow.

That is awesome! Definitely a proper step for trail bikes. I am running a 34 front with 11x34 10 sp on my Covert, wouldn't mind going to a 30 front and still having that tough gear for fast decents.

It won't die if we keep talking about it... lol I prefer slalom, but 4x is easier for people to watch and understand. Courses could be better, but I would argue that they are

The park is huge, the picture shows just a taste. What is not shown is the singletracks, cyclocross stuff, two pumptracks, dirt jumps, wallrides... Its an amazing park, I cant wait for it to open!

Good read, he explains it like it is, and where his company stands with regards to the industry, the team riders, and the company's goals. The letter/blog could have used some proofreading and editing prior to posting though

Reply to Tires for Bootleg Canyon 12/30/2010 7:29 PM

Agreed with Turman, its all about the casing at Bootleg. The terrain destroys tire tread and sidewalls, so don't try and run a single ply or anything light, run durable for sure. I have run Minions and High Rollers with luck, Intense 2 and 4 plys with ... more »

Reply to All-Mountain Tires? 12/6/2010 9:23 AM

Minion EXO DHF, its a 2.5 but pretty darn light and tons of traction. Minion 2.35 DHF or High Roller 2.35 rear. They dont roll like XC tires, but the trails I ride them on require some meat for the descents, so I just deal with the added heft of these ... more »

Solar! Certainly lots of potential problems, but could work pretty sweet

Next option, a small chip that can be put into the bb shell or something that connects to your smart phone and has a GPS piece, it tracks location, mileage, altitude... lead you directly to your stolen bike? Crap, I should have patented that prior to ... more »

I kinda figured something like that, they dont mess around with protecting bikes, so thats awesome. I musta missed that when I skimmed the article. This is sick
