Photo Blast: DHSE Series Finals, Sugar Mountain

Huge thanks to the Mullaly's and JackieRiceCakes for being able to provide the logistics of a top level event. I've never seen that many Groms or single crown racers before. Live timing splits, rolling start timer, timing chips for low error results, TrillWill announcing, record turnout for a venue that hasn't hosted a race since Nationals 10+ years ago. The growth of the sport is not in decline at the moment.
Hadn't attended a race in 2+ years & got the itch to be part of this so bad I showed up in a skid lid on a trail bike. Had a blast and saw so many old & new faces. Heard new stories, got to ask a young female racer how she got into it to see if I could find that secret "hook" to get my girls into the sport.
Had multiple folks help me resolve an equipment issue. Had more nerves than I've had in 20 years to the point I couldn't feel my arms in the start gate.

If you've never raced, you owe it to yourself to immerse yourself in all the controlled chaos.

Well...crap. That bike throws a curve ball in the works for sure. Is this review pure US based models? In thr past they've offered different combos overseas versus U.S.

Added a comment about video "I Would 1,000% Never Do That Again..." - Jeff Lenosky 8/10/2020 10:53 AM

@radair haven't we learned that all our old heroes are just like all the old bands. Selling out to get paid and ditching morals...all while taking on the mentality of "Oh, sorry. My bad." Name one pro getting product or bikes who is posting their ebike stuff or poached trails that takes the video down when they realize it's illegal.
The answer is always zero. Everyone knows that if you're going riding, you confirm if it's legal to ride on an ebike by simply asking or buying a map.
But why buy a map or ask when there's money to be made in clicks. Lenosky isn't sorry. He's getting clicks.

Sorry Jeff, but it's true. Had tons of respect for you, but this is who you are now.

FYI, E13 sealant won't work with it (even 2). The walk out was unexpected and the purchase of the 5 extra heads as my learning curve punishment was not enjoyable.

The flip chip for 27.5 doesn't look like it moves the axle. Looks to just change chainstay length?
Doesn't that mean you will smack cranks w/ the smaller wheel?

With grease they are pretty quiet. Also 15 minutes drive from my house.
But...since I don't know a "bro" there anymore, I havr to pay full pop & will probably not own another pair for as long as my kids are in school.

Worst thing about I9s is to live here and see them on every other bike but yours in every color combo imaginable (and knowing my xolor combo would be the best) . wink

I am more impressed that he doesn't run a bash guard for some reason. All that nutter stuff and he should be smashing chain rings into dust without one.
We need a Chris Akrigg vs BikerBrayd challenge.

Someone should tell her that sucking down too much pollen syrup is probably what's "gettin' to her".
