Reply to Are You Going To Buy a New Bike in 2018? 1/19/2018 6:37 AM

The bike industry does a good job of creating FOMO. It's only when I'm not riding my bike that I'm thinking of the niggles I have with it.

Reply to What Went Wrong with Interbike? Death to a Dinosaur? 9/27/2016 7:36 AM

Thanks for the shout out! While I've never been to Interbike, trade shows like SEMA have also gone downhill. I think part of it is due to manufacturers not having to wait for conventions to announce the latest and greatest. Also, there's a lot of talk ... more »

Ever since my bmx days, I've always loved a good Superman seat grab. For now I'll just dream (not my pic):

Reply to What Bike Feature is Most Important to You? 7/1/2016 10:28 AM

Torn between travel and a geometry. But I will add the disclaimer that it's the quality of travel versus the amount of travel for me. As I was first getting into biking and I would encounter unusual behavior my immediate thought was that I needed more ... more »

Reply to AutoShock - Linking Your Dropper To Your Shock 3/19/2016 11:34 AM

I can't say for my riding there's a direct correlation between my suspension being locked out or open and having my seat up or down. Then again, I don't think I've ever used the lockout or even trail settings...

Loving the undercover wrap/paint job! I'd love to do a frame like that.

Reply to What Are YOU Most Picky About Regarding Setup? 2/28/2016 9:55 AM

Tires and PSI: I've ran Minion's for years and it's hard to try anything else. Especially up front. Decided to try a Trail King, and after a few rides I'm not too sure about it. 28/32, checked before each ride. Suspension: Coil up front, each ride over ... more »

Reply to How Far Do You Drive to Ride? 2/22/2016 7:31 AM

I'm pretty spoiled, being a half hour from Park City, and about 15 minutes from lots of other rad trails/trail centers.

Ride more, surf less. Buy nice or buy twice. Or thrice. Listen to more Thrice.

Reply to Which Component Do You Drop First? 2/4/2016 12:48 PM

I would gladly go single speed again. This just re lit the fire to convert my sb66 to single speed.

Interval training does wonders, even if it's just on the trainer.

Reply to slack, long-travel, pedal-able 29ers? 11/22/2015 9:12 AM

I remember hearing Steve Smith say something to the effect of "I'm here to win races. If it's faster I don't care what size the wheels are." I think it was a few years ago, and a lot has happened with long travel 29ers in the past few years. Additionally, ... more »

Reply to As a Consumer, How Do You Choose What to Buy? Vital Review Feedback Requested 11/18/2015 3:45 PM

I think direct comparisons would be very helpful, whether it be comparing the bike as a whole or specific components (i.e. "while xxx component has a solid reputation for consistency, we've found xxy to be a better match for this bike's intended use"). ... more »

Over shooting it sure beats coming up short here. Catching his rear tire would have sent him face first into the ground. He's one talented and lucky guy.

edson, I think this is the first time I've heard any negativity toward Saints. What happened?

Reply to Do you ride with a pack? 1/8/2015 10:35 AM

I mentioned this elsewhere, still a bit bitter. Ha. Out of my usual riding buddies I'm usually the only one that I trust to have tools/gear. Everyone else has gotten use to it, so I've turned into the go-to guy for tubes, a pump, patch kit, food, and ... more »

Reply to Specialized Enduro 650B vs. Devinci Spartan 7/24/2014 8:07 PM

I caught a glimpse of it at Canyons last week. Didn't catch that it was carbon into seeing it on pinkbike. Looks way good. I think there's a certain appeal about something you can't get as readily as you can an Enduro. Not that the Enduro isn't an extremely ... more »

I get more excited seeing a Spartan than I do a Enduro.
