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 »

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 »

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 »

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.

Where are these $2 tubes you speak of? Some shops around me have the nerve to charge $12 for a single tube!

Reply to New Wheelset/Disc Hub Suggestions 9/5/2013 8:17 PM

A couple things to consider. The Stumpjumper may be the perfect bike for you, but it is close to 10 years old. I don't know your budget, but the 400 for wheels plus 100+/- or however much you spend on brakes is a good chunk of a new or slightly used ... more »
