I don’t think that was my point.

Hey StudBeefpile, this is Charlie Sponsel. I live in Silverdale and I'm on the board of Evergreen Westsound. I'm helping lead an Evergreen work team to "flowify" the trail Derailed right now, and I'd love to hear your feedback more in detail. Our goal ... more »

I've always thought one of the best tips for bleeding SRAM brakes was throwing them in the garbage and buying Zee's.

I don't know the guy but now I feel like I know the guy.

Respect to all the trailbuilders out there. Over the years, you've said take this dirt, then put it there ... and then get out of the way while I make magic. My old-man back may hate you but the rest of me does not.

Tremendous or fake news, I'm not conceding either way.

How many different volume reducer combinations did Brandon try on the two air shocks? A lot of the ride characteristics he described could be a result of spring progression or lack thereof.

For example, “the Float X2 gives the bike a bigger, deeper, more forgiving, less harsh feel all around.”
Is that because of inherent qualities of the shock’s architecture, or because of large positive air volume? As a counterpoint, I guarantee I can make the shock feel less deep and more harsh by stuffing it full of reducers.

Nice informative video. I have a lot of time on the DPX and Foat X2, but not much on the X2. I did notice from the sound of your rear rim pinging in the rock section a tire insert might be a better investment than a new shock. Haha.

Looking forward to this when I head out to sling some dirt. Wentz taught me how to gate start, coached me to a D2 Collegiate National Championship, had the sickest photo sequence from Durango sending it off the drop and has been an inspiration not only as a rider, but as an...more

I hung out with him years ago in Santa Cruz. Rode in Freedom and shuttled Juggs. He rode our most technical jump and bridge filled trail first try after just walking up it. Hope you're running all six rotor bolts nowadays!

Welcome to Washington! I think you've got the right idea when it comes to amount of travel, but I would highly encourage you to not spend that much money if you're riding the green and blue lines at Duthie. I'm a former pro downhill racer and I would ... more »

Perhaps a misleading choice of words, "land in our office". We do often request test products, and we try to get around to testing as much relevant AND exciting stuff as we can. We don't just "wait around and see who ships us product".

C'mon, that might provide valuable information and could be devoid of the "free stuff shipped to us-itus" that often inflates reviews.

It would also eliminate the possibility of the mfg sending "special" product that they have taken apart and given the factory treatment...more

This one was assembled in WI through Project One, even though it was initially just a stock 9.8 XT. The turnaround at the time of order was 45 days instead of 6+ months.
