Enjoyed the interview. Bummed you never covered where he is and what he does today. Where has all of this led him?

"under these circumstances" ... getting to ride the exact same bike the guy who won rode–on the exact same course. As long as the rider is up to the task, it would be hard to come up with better circumstances to arrive at a meaningful first impression.

Added a comment about feature Vital MTB Test Sessions: Five of the Best Long-Travel Enduro 29ers Raced and Reviewed 3/8/2018 9:46 AM

Also test runs with flat and clipless pedals. I'd also like to see runs with tight fitting clothing and looser clothing to see if that actually affects times. If you end up doing varying body types could you be sure they have significantly different shoe sizes? I'd be curious if the extra weight of having big feet slows down your pedaling. I also noticed that in the video sometimes Steve was wearing a half-shell helmet in practice. Could you do timed race runs with full faces vs. half shell helmets to see if a full face gives you more confidence, resulting in faster times? This will make the test just slightly more complex, but that is really my only critique.

Added a comment about product review First Look, First Ride: e*thirteen's Reinforced Tires 1/8/2018 9:50 AM

I believe I read somewhere e13 saying that this tire was inspired by the Wild Rock'r2 because it was one of the better tires they tested. (though aren't all of these tires heavily inspired by the DHF?) But, a tire isn't just the tread pattern, how do other things like width, weight and casing compare? At one point I saw Wild Rock'r2 tires on sale in 29" and was interested to try them, but upon closer look they weighed like 1150+ grams, which is equivalent to the DH version of this. Too heavy for my day to day trail use. My TRS tires also measure a good bit wider than I've seen the Wild R measured at. I'll stick with these for the foreseeable future.

Added a comment about press release Fasthouse to Enter Mountain Biking in 2018 9/12/2017 1:27 PM

With the caveat that I'm not into moto, or familiar with the brand... when I view and read this page I get a vibe of this being the Ed Hardy of Mountain Biking. I could be wrong, but just saying.

50:01 seems more just having fun as a dirty mountain biker and less about putting a lot of effort into your image... torn t-shirts vs. loud moto jerseys with bold & cheesy sayings printed on them.

Well, we'll see what they come out with.

Makes me think it is probably a good idea to wear DH pants over any knee pads, rather than just shorts with pads. I bet Gwin keeps his pants on from now on.

Anyone know his injury status? Looks scary, hopefully he isn't out for the season, he has been killing it.

Added reply in a thread Should There Be a 29er DH Class and 27.5 DH Class at World Cups? 6/13/2017 9:49 PM

How do you know that 29ers were not any faster in this race? There is no way to know this based on the race results, only by doing individual timed testing like Santa Cruz did. Just because Gwin beat a 29er by 1.5 seconds that doesn't mean 29 has no ... more »

I'm having trouble with the argument that bigger wheels somehow offer too much control or stability, coming from a team that spends such a significant amount of effort suspension testing with a dedicated telemetry bike in practice, with the goal of...more

I disagree with the comments about the tracks changing the bikes. The new bikes will still be faster on the old tighter tracks just like in F1 where the new cars are faster around Monaco even though it is the epitome of old school. If we really want...more

You sound hypocritical Loic. You're OK with the suspension constantly improving, OK with carbon prototype everything, OK with an increase from 26 to 27.5, OK with the heaps of technology that keep air inside your tires despite what you do to them,...more

This honestly kind of scares me. Loic is one hell of a competitor, and it would suck to have someone as passionate as him walk away from the sport. I know he has been outspoken on this 29er vs. 27.5 argument, and I have to imagine there are other...more
