Well, Probably because we are 'moto inspired' brand? and the formula has worked for us in bike as of late. That being said, the 16' line has a LOT of toned down pieces on the logo driven vibe. I love this comment though, I am old and have no desire to ... more »

Proper grammar is something I strive for, I often fail...but I do know one thing, your first sentence was written like a halfwit retard. -My career...experience has finally paid off, I guess? I am brutally honest and loyal as an old dog, there are few ... more »

Spomer, always with the inquisitive questioning with insight-also want to add, I am a big fan of what you have done in the media space....you know I was always a fan of your imagery, and Littermag was so sick, which turned into this beast (vitalmtb) ... more »

Sadly, Leigh and I raced the Snow Summit 'comeback' race in October and she beat me. They had their first DH race in 12 years or something, so we went up to race. I had not raced a DH in 22 years! I still ride of course, but not so much DH, unless you ... more »

Holy crap, that is beyond radical (not radical as in islamic terror) and thanks for sharing. I do not regret for one second the opportunity I was given to travel the world and our country, meeting people everywhere was the best and talking about bikes. ... more »

A1 has done phenomenally well for us, well beyond Troy's goals and it keeps growing-people love the comfort, and the styling we are known for-but I get to see so many helmets from customers and athletes that took massive impacts and walked away safely, ... more »

Oh shit, Brandon called me the other day, and I never called him back-maybe it was about asking me to ride for him in the new season of LBB? Or not. I am old, really old, and LBB is my favorite web series ever.

I know as a company man, people expect the company man to only mention 'their' riders, and for TLD, we have a pretty small but rad roster on the DH circuit. Our 3 top 20 guys this year were Gwin, Fairclough and Luca Shaw (SRAM TLD RACING YO!! and Rookie ... more »

I have been thinking it was smoke and mirrors, for years, until I rode in a competitors helmet with MIPS, I have been analyzing a lot of MIPS data, and I am convinced it is a help or added layer of defense against concussion. That being said, you can't ... more »

As I said before, I always worked with smart, talented, inspiring Athletes. BUT, there were times when there was nothing left to change, on a technical track and I had pulled that trick on them. Tire pressure tricks, couple suspension tricks. Being a ... more »

Honestly have never been pushed to that level, especially since I became a Dad. Maybe in the 90's. Athlete wise, I NEVER worked with an athlete I didn't like, even today at TLD, the whole roster is people I enjoy. That being said, I will not name names, ... more »

I don't think Gwin gets mad, but when he does, it's when I talk about his career. So, I plead the 5th.
