Added a comment about feature Op-Ed - DON’T SPOIL THE RESULTS IN THE TITLE 9/18/2019 7:01 AM

THIS ARTICLE SUCKS! J/K, but I do agree with "Peter" with the exception of the click bait stuff. This sport is different than most in the sense that most people who are fans, actually actively participate in the sport. I don't want to devote my day to watching an event inside. I'd rather actually go ride, and yes, then watch the replay. I can do laps all day long at my local bike park and not hear the results. I can also easily avoid PB, Vital Etc. The problem is Facebook and or Instagram. I don't want to be scrolling through that and accidently see results on that feed. Pretty simple and reasonable request IMO. I have not seen one response yet with anyone saying, "Screw Peter! I want to see the results in the title!". Obviously, your livelihood depends on the traffic brought to the site, but really, who is your competition? There's you guys, Pinkbike and RideMonkey(which isn't a news source anyways). So, instead of claiming your viewers/ customers have issues with entitlement, maybe let's not be so sensitive to the point of writing a whole story about...nothing..or maybe this whole story was just "click bait" wink

Here’s the positive spin-“My HT pedals are too strong!” I’m a DH fan. Been riding DH since ‘94 and now have a 15 yro that rips and loves the sport as well. I couldn’t ask for more. American DH “fans” are least the ones living their lives ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is the 29 / 27.5 combo (97.5) bike here to stay? 4/30/2019 12:44 PM

I find it interesting that it has gone to this so quickly. 29ers really only had 1 season where they were largely adopted by most/some of the riders. The fact that they are already trying to change the wheel size again makes me think that the whole 29 ... more »

So, still no word on Dakota Norton? How cool would it be to see Gwin, Neko and Norton on Intense? All American team on an American brand?

Are we there yet?

This is getting annoying. Is Gwin trying to pull a Lebron James? Odd that it is taking this long to finalize and I can only imagine there may be a very large degree of mistrust working with him due to his past dealings.

I've always wondered why or when the DH biking profession will get away from industry sponsorship. I don't want to drag this down the ski racing road again, but I guess I will. DH needs to get out into other corporate money if they actually want to make ... more »

If that is in anyway referring to Gwin, that is awesome. What a dark, satanic looking graphic! They just need to color the eyes red.. And of course the Alpine Stars gear indicates you think he went for a ride and forgot his TLD stuff and ... more »

Is it possible that Whiteley has resurrected 23*, will be signing Gwin again, and other athletes as well, and each one of those athletes will ride whatever they want? Maybe even some of the athletes that we recently learned have already signed with a ... more »

OK, I'll play. I wandered over from Ridemonkey after witnessing the armchair experts run off all of the industry insiders..I'm hoping VItal is an improvement, although I just came across a "lets build the most expensive bike in the world" thread. Anyways, ... more »

Tahnee: Transition TR500 possibly carbon prototype. it's the right cable routing, horizontalish shock, Ride is willing to bet $ against what it's not and he's a Transition employee.
