The Park City dirt jumps look amazing compared to the last time I was there! Whole video was excellent. Bowl to bowl transfer was gnarly. Thank you Cody, Deity, and crew.

Typically flat riders ride more rear spring (because they're weighting their feet more and leaning back more) and clip riders run more front spring. I used to bump up two clicks of low speed in my fork when I switched to clips. Now I just run clips all the time cuz I finally came to peace with the knowledge that I suck at riding flats.

Just wanted to chime in here and clarify that a) welding tolerance on aluminum frame head angles is ~1.0 degrees, and b) you absolutely, positively cannot feel 0.5 degrees of head angle change.

Hey, remember when Disney bought Lucasfilm and used all of their money and resources to recreate everything that made the original trilogy great, albeit updated for new audiences and exploring new ground for the franchise, while staying true to the films roots and core themes?

Oh, yeah, I forgot, that never happened.

I've had several bikes with either wheel size. 26 to 27.5 to 29 back to 27.5. If I can only have one bike, it's going to be a 27.5 long travel bike because I can run heavy ass tires without the bike feeling unmanageable. DH tires on a 29er wheel, especially ... more »

I agree with Grinch, this conversation is very DH and more importantly pro-centric. For the average rider on their home trails, 1300g tires, 300g inserts, etc are totally unnecessary. Even at 190 pounds he seems to make due with 1000 g tires, so Grinch... ... more »

That's what I was thinking. Who would release a product early just because customers are antsy and want it now? You know what else customers want? Products that work.

Most of the time I use alcohol, but it hasn't made a difference. The tire glued to the gorilla tape and when you take the tire off, blammo! tape comes with it. I've taken to spray contact adhesive on the rim first, and even using a heat gun on the tape before mounting a tire. I will say I've had marginally better luck with Stan's yellow tape because the tire doesn't stick to it as much, but the downside is it doesn't stick well to the rim.

OK so I used a character the site doesn't like, so it cut my previous message...sigh. What I meant to type was: Look in the top left hand corner of the RB video player (in the video window), you'll see a little "share" symbol (looks like a sideways "V" with extra dots on it). You should be able to find the embed code here (on anything that's possible to embed, they don't always allow it).

All the RB player gives me is a url, not an embed code. Is that what you're using?

Yo yo! We pull the embed code off the player on RB, then we either drop it straight into the code view (on our back end), or use [embed] tags in our forum. That all depends on....your friend's....website software though. Not sure I can be more helpful than that...

Johan! Random question for you- how did you embed those Red Bull media player videos in html? I'm asking for... a friend's... website.
