I have tried both the Leatt (older moto gpx version) and the Alpinestars BNS and in my opinion the Alpinestars takes the cake hands down. I had many fitting issues with the Leatt and I decided to just not wear it, but with the Alpinestars it only took ... more »

Cool, well this narrows it down for me. Thanks guys. Its between the Fox 40 and the 888 Evo Ti, and I"m leaning towards the 40. I just serviced my old 40 the other day and I realized that its not that hard to work on by myself but I guess I'll just see ... more »

Really? I have never considered an 888 ever since they started making them in taiwan a few years back but I'll have to do some more research on them for the future. My bike shop guy usually talks me into what fork HE wants to sell me but I'm wanting ... more »

So I am finally selling the old fork (2008 Fox 40) and I'm looking to get a new one for my 2010 Demo 8 with an RC4 rear shock. I am kinda trying to shave some weight off of my demo so I"m leaning towards boxxer since I've never really ridden an air fork ... more »

It is heavier but they perform arguably better and are more durable in the long run.

Chad is possibly the dirtiest racer I have ever seen. Mtn biking is better of without him, even though DH is raced against the clock I still wouldn't be surprised to see him take out someone. Shoulda interviewed bubba!!! lol

I wonder how much those suckers cost, I'm willing to bet they are cheaper than Maxxis. Love how big bike companies are getting serious about the tire game, don't forget that specialized started the whole thing!!

Added a comment about feature Shock Talk: RockShox and Fox Racing Shox Dual Interview 1/2/2012 7:54 PM

I definitely agree that the amount of adjustments we to can make to our shocks these days is crazy. Especially when you consider what it was like a few years ago. The companies sort of lost me after they offered adjustments besides regular rebound and compression damping. I have no idea what PSI to run my piggback at on my RC4 and everything else I sort of just put in the middle. Someone needs to make a youtube vid about this stuff, kids today can't be expected to actually read owners manuals!! hahahah

That seemed a little harsh. I agree with some or most of it but I really think mountain biking in GENERAL is taking a hit in this economy and its not fair to lump it all on the DHers. Granted, I haven't bought an XC bike in a while but from some of the ... more »

Added a comment about news blog Australian National DH Round 1 at Thredbo - Qualification Results 12/10/2011 12:05 PM

I Feel like this is HUGE for the Aussie DH scene. They have been hurting the last couple of years in DH if you really think about it. It has always been a consistent back and fourth between AUS and GBR for DH Supremacy and AUS has been loosing the last few years with Sam Hill getting hurt all the time and all the new GBR up and comers (Hart, Fairclough, Atherton, Bond, Bryceland, etc). All AUS has really had to come back with has been Troy Brosnan, I think he has blown everyone away with his results this year but who else from AUS is steppin up?? Throw Graves back in the mix and he's a solid top 10 rider to mix things up and then top it off with a REAL threat for the women's side of things (which GBR has also been dominating lately) and you've got the recipe for a good year for the Aussies!!!
