I found this strangely relatable for mountain bike content. More than anything it comes across like a genuine attempt to help less experienced riders make a few simple decisions and arrive at a better outcome for themselves. So it came across to me...more

32lbs for an alloy hardtail is ridiculous. I own two steel hardcore hardtails and there both under 29lbs. One of my hardtails is ridiculously expensive (6k build, 26lbs) but the other is just bog-standard and weighs 29lbs.

Agree with Spomer on this. In the same way that mud spikes are known to squirm on rocks and roots, Magic Mary’s can squirm and fold on a super hard-packed trail, especially if you’re hitting a berm, steep lip, or banked lip with additional g-forces. It’s the opposite of traction- it’s...more

1. it certainly is "a thing" - calling all trail builders? b. with that said, let me clarify what i mean about tracking up lips and landings. this consideration is for rhythm/dirt jump lines or pumptracks that are manicured and, as mentioned, SOFT. bigger knobs will track up lips and...more

I haven't ran SRAM brakes in a while, but those older Codes were one of the better SRAM options out there

Paying a premium for a boutique brand that is not a boutique brand is the main point. They used to be, they no longer are. Their warranty support has been a nightmare for a while (a friend of mine has two bikes currently sitting...more

Unfortunate end to a tremendous competitive career. I'm sure she'll be just as successful in her next adventures.

Would be cool to see you put a little more detail in your parts list.

Right. You're 100% focused on going all out and just make a mistake. There's the argument that almost everyone got it, but it sure doesn't look absolutely clear and I can for sure see how someone would make this mistake

Or you could try to understand how something like that could happen by accident. 99% of the between the tape is legit. End of a stage, redlined, muddy goggles? It’s possible it was on purpose, but if your purposely going to cheat your looking for places to...more

My plan is to build out an entire line. I built this one first because it's what I wanted for myself, and it's roughly in the middle of the travel spectrum, allowing me to reach less far as I move toward longer and shorter travel options (Datums are reference entities in engineering, this is my...more

smart move, nothing to gain from racing these two at if you're not 100%. hope he can bounce back big time in 2022!

The aging body sucks, but good on Gwin for making the mature call.

I'm really happy that he made sure to be there with the team to BE PRESENT FOR THE FANS. It cannot be overstated how valuable it is for the US fan base to have him at the track, in the pits and available to the public again.
Good on you Gwinner. The US fan base will remember you making the trip &...more
