Kade... if he can pull off some big stuff, I think he is going to take the win. His style is just berserk/amazing.

Some of these comments are absolutely egregious. You've got an Olympian and a world champion having to defend themselves against the reliably uninformed vocal minority on the internet. These guys are explaining the situation to the best of their abilities, ... more »

We all know scoring ramps up as the contest progresses through the day. So why not delay showing the results until the end of ALL the first runs, and then ALL of the second runs. This way the judges can normalize and balance the scores as homogeneous ... more »

Reply to Would You Ride This $13,000 Downhill Fat E-Bike? 5/4/2018 7:46 PM

I just gota plug trials motorcycles here. 150 pounds, 300cc, all the travel and torque you'd ever want. Who the hell would buy an e-motorcycle for 13-18k when you can have something better for 7-8k.

You can see the Deity grips from last months club box if you zoom in on the left bench! I have this little nook off to one side of my garage. This shop does multiple duties... bikes, cars, wood, forestry equipment.

There is an interview from last year (i think) where Claudio is saying he would still be on the team

Reply to Which bike do you regret buying? 7/20/2016 6:12 AM

I cant believe the hate on SB6! Its been on my radar as a supplement to the Following. I just want a bigger bike for some park days, and for riding with slower XC people. I'm loving the Following and will keep it at least another season. You guys with ... more »

Reply to Riding Solo - Love It or Hate It? 6/22/2016 4:47 PM

Thinking back this year, 95% of my rides were solo. I usually squeeze an hour and a half in after work, and a longer 2-3 hour ride on the weekends. I have no real fear of being in the woods alone. We have a ton of black bear around here, and some rattlers, ... more »

Jersey. Saw the Specialized stumpy + bike, well piloted... the guy looked like he was having fun too. He had a coil on the rear (i think) and a 36 or 34 Fox up front. Damn fun looking bike. We were similar sized guys.. he said he was running 14psi in

I've been buying "import" frames for about 6 years now. Started with a road frame, an On-One 456 Carbon, and the latest Hong-Fu FM196. I've spent a good deal of time on the mountain frames. The road frame I sized wrong (a good example of what ordering ... more »

come on dude, Gwin? The system pictured above would not function without a chain. The guy is the most talented DH rider alive right now, period. Not a cheater. Ratboy? Just as good, up there.

I remove the valve core. You can flow a lot more air that way. I also support the rim/tire off the ground from inside the rim, so the rubber isn't deformed in any way. When the bead seats, just pop your finger over the valve before the air rushes out. ... more »
