Wow. Wild. This is when I REALLY miss Sven's insights via the interviews & the slideshow.

Top junior males looking rapid, Goldstone and Williams would've qualified 4th and 6th in elites.

Oh man that is super disappointing. Literally the best mtb content out there. I guess its just us old dudes with attention spans who can watch an hour of slides and interviews. Super bummed.

Shit yeah bro. Should be a good team. Hope the kiwis don't completely overwhelm Trummer, but Tuhoto seems like the real deal and his interviews are the best around.

Oh man. I would get 4000 Shingles shots regardless of what was in it to avoid getting that shit again. That was some of the most painful and frustrating months of my life. Couldn't do anything without pain. Even the breeze blowing a shirt against me ... more »

ya probably fixable with 1 more token. I just bumped the pressure to 25% above my recommended weight, but now not using all the travel. Doesnt feel harsh but know it can be better on small bump. I think it just felt much more linear than my old 36. I think a token a little less air and some more LSC and it will be good.

I picked up the S and have had good experiences so far. Replaced the reverb with a 180 OneUp post and will eventually replace the grip2 damper. Current damper is pretty underwhelming. Lots of bottom outs when set anywhere near recommended settings and compression cranked to nearly locked out.
Other than that i did nothing to the bike except set sag and its been great. It was incredibly predictable and comfortable from day 1.
The first thing i noticed was how quickly the back end got out of the way of big square impacts. I ride my local trails alot and found myself subconsciously bracing my legs for impacts where on my old bike (SB6) would be aggressive, but didnt really trigger on the Bronson. It will take me a while to get up to full speed on it i think and trust it, but its definitely solid.

Feel bad for him, clearly a shitty mistake. No one would try and deliberately cheat right in front of the finish line in sight of the announcer, right? Can't really do much but DSQ or some kind of time penalty regardless of who it is.

I snapped an old school demo shock shaft. They were good at that.

Did it come with a bike, or you buy it used? I would just take it to an authorized service center and get it looked at. Whether that is via the shop you purchased it from or somewhere else. Another thing you can try is dump all the air out and cycle ... more »

10k canadian for an x01, Fox Factory, Carbon wheel ride is actually decent value compared to other brands offerings. Currently Rocky has a 9k altitude with Fox PE and dt 370 wheelset.

Chromag is still the epitome of a core MTB brand. They've never sold out and made crap just to make $$$. Everything they build is calculated, great performance and long lasting. They still close their office every Friday,Sat,Sun so their employees can ... more »

Better scale them servers up boys! Seriously though, hope it doesn't turn to shit here. The comments are usually from people who know how to ride and are generally knowledgable about bikes. Pinkbike on the other hand...
