Reply to Shimano Working on a New Saint Derailleur? 10/16/2020 10:43 AM

It is overdue. That said, not many groupsets have had the staying power and reliable, pro-level performance of Saint for as long as it has. Goes to show just how good it is.

Reply to Why are there still no 200mm+ Enduro bikes? 2/28/2020 6:26 PM

Suspension set for "drops" isn't the same as suspension set for speed or racing. Horses for courses. Even back in the free ride era, pro DH riders didn't run the same suspension as free ride guys did. In addition, free ride bikes were tanks and shit ... more »

There should be zero 'requirement' or quota for a team to sponsor any ratio of genders (or any other factor). The only protocol for sponsorship should be a mutual agreement between each racer and the sponsoring company. The company's perceived value ... more »

Agree. That said, turn of the century, most motorcycle brands started out making bicycles. The early motorcycles where just bikes with motors grafted on somehow. Seems we have come full circle.

Dammit Jeff!! I cannot up vote this enough. I'm 44 and this was my LIFE in the 80's. ??

Maybe to you. But a vast majority of sponsors disagree with you. The numbers don't lie

Reply to Are today's entry level DH bikes as good as high end of the past? 9/13/2018 10:26 AM

I am 44, raced expert/semi-pro NORBA and regional stuff mid 1990's to 2002 or so. The entry level YT just released is better in every way than bikes of that era. Brakes, geometry, tires, suspension, sifting, chain retention, etc. Bikes 6-10 years ago ... more »

Wow man. The color of a bike makes you that upset? You need to step away, get outside, go ride your bike (what ever color it is). Chill man

Reply to Current Enduro Bikes, One bike to rule them all, or all hype? 1/29/2018 2:21 PM

I am fortunate enough to live in Denver and have access to several lift-assisted bike parts. I hit Whistler each year for several days. Therefore I have both a DH and a trail bike. Modern enduro/trail bikes are excellent machines in so many ways. However, ... more »
