Looks like it still has the CA plate. Looks like a "Grey/Black" Freerider just in "Black/blue". It has the same mesh over the toe, instead of the perforated leather. That mesh can blowout from toes or from catching on thick brush or whatever. I guess it keeps your feet better ventilated for low speed open environments when doing "urban trials/freeriding" or whatever you call D-mac's riding style.

Added a comment about feature Five Ten Cool Hwip Clipless Shoes 8/20/2011 12:15 AM

Why a clipless interface with 5.10 soles? Cause it sucks walking in most other clipless shoes, with their super hard lugs that you end up walking on the tips/edges of your shoes with? I dunno, it's been a while since I've been on clipless, but I think that's one reason why I didn't like it.

I'd like to go back to clipless one day, but not with roadie shoes with lugs attached to the underside.

Doesn't look like the course changed much since the legendary Sam Hill world championship run. The top qualifying time from this year and the time Sam Hill (and Steve Peat) posted from that run is only off by a second, with the qualifiers this year being faster.

Added a comment about feature Gloves, Body Protection Required at La Bresse 8/4/2011 2:05 PM

Well, I personally like the benefits armor and I hate poorly designed armor that's simply uncomfortable and makes you not want to wear it. This is more of a Yes and No deal for me...

Hate to see it required, but it protects the pros since they're at substantial risk pushing it to the limits. If it slows them down in regards to pedaling performance, better to slow 'em all down to make sure they're racing responsibly. If it makes them take even greater risks and go even faster, that'd be amazing from a spectator's perspective.

By requiring it, it'll likely force a push for higher quality armor. Something you'd want to wear on a more regular basis. If something really good trickles down to consumers that's a great improvement over what's currently available and doesn't cost an arm or a leg (is that a pun?), I'm all for it.

I know some kids that don't wear gear, basing their stance that pros don't wear it. I've seen some kids get hurt pretty bad, though armor probably wouldn't have helped much. I'm actually out for an injury right now for a week or two and shouldn't be riding, but still am. I know it's gonna heal poorly, but I can't stay off the bike. Wonder how much I could've mitigated the injury by wearing some good armor.

That bar thingee-ma-jig from April Fools that turns gravity machines to pedaling machines, after you replace your rear shock with it, might have come in handy. JK JK :D

His vocab is screaming for help. I'd like to help him, but mine's not so hot either. At least his actions speak loud enough to cover for his lack of words.

The video seemed a bit anticlimactic. Maybe it was because of the dudes in spandex hugging each other.

Maybe if he was using that speed to cross a 100+ ft gorge... I guess when I saw Evil and bikes, I thought of Evel Knievel.

Frame + shock under 5 lbs as a trail bike? That's lighter than many XC FS frame+shocks.

Added a comment about video ProGRT How To Cheer 4/11/2011 7:54 PM

I think the silent pelvic thrust cheer would throw me off most if I saw that. Silent cheer and silent arm pump would too, but their movements are too common that I would usually just pass by without giving it a second thought. All the others, I would just think that the crowd is bonkers.

The section leading up to 1:27 and just after... seeing pros fly through that section was just mind blowing.

That wall is the only thing that doesn't change at Southridge/Fontana. There's so many strips of dirt leading down that hill...

Don't blow up the neck brace topic under this man's photo... there's already enough threads disputing their worth.

Anyone have the lowdown on how JD's run on the 2951 at Fontana SRC Pro DH went? I only know of his result for sure, but rumors are that JD was a bit out of shape and it was a pedally course and he could've easily got a few extra places if he had a bit more aerobic ability.

I just started wearing a 661 Evo Pressure Suit. The small 2010 version was on sale at extreme sports protection for $135 after $100 off and a 10% off returning customer code. Fits well under all my jerseys, breaths well, and gives a decent amount of ... more »
