Reply to Question for enduro racers: One day vs Multi day 8/29/2016 2:21 PM

A garmin, or any other GPS, is no where near accurate enough for race timing. And if the tracks are in the woods, then really forget it. If you just want to "Strava Race" your bros for free, you can do it right now! The easiest, most fool proof way I ... more »

Please explain differences between CBF and ICT from Ellsworth. http://www.ellsworthbikes.com/tech/instant-center-tracking/ Is it more than just same idea on single pivot vs a four bar? How does CBF perform if you want to run a bigger front ring like a 36t, or smaller like a 28T? Seems like it is married ... more »

Gotta have a jingle bell on when in Grizzly territory. Don't want to surprise them!

Damn straight! Wait till these come down in price. Full bore quiet trail assassin.

Brings poaching to a whole new level!
Reply to MTB Ban Implemented Based on Strava Speeds 5/5/2016 3:48 PM

Free version of this is rad, much better that Garmin connect. http://home.trainingpeaks.com/ For what it's worth, the "trails" that bikes got banned from in this dispute are not worth mentioning. All horse stuff, super small area, never even though about going there....

Keene is about as in bed with Specialized as you can be short of putting a ring on the finger of Sinyard's daughter.... He is bro bro with all the mtb product managers and has been for many years. The American Dream is good guy to have on your team, ... more »

Siick, can't wait to see Grubby ripping around the local trails. If Specialized is for sure that is..... There will a new Enduro for MY2016 (new SJ last year, new Enduro this year). The new carbon frames usually start showing up for testing Dec/Jan. ... more »

Reply to Forum Hot Seat - Todd Seplavy, Director of Product at GT Bicycles 12/11/2015 2:41 PM

You may have set the record for shortest career with Speshy. I think it was less than a week? How involved were you with bringing Sam on board with Specialized? Did they just boot you after he signed? Were you bummed, or did you try and steal him over ... more »

Yessir! Bringing back the DH with a Turner DHR. Bargain of the century right now! Feel free to send me all your 26" DH tires......

Reply to Interesting Shimano Dropper Post Patent 9/3/2015 3:17 PM

Shimano gets 10 or more patents granted each month. Most of them are for stuff they will never even prototype, they just want to be sure that no one else can. I bet they have more people in their "patent department" than most bike companies have design ... more »

Dooood, don't forget about Lake Tahoe with Squaw Valley in '99. Young and angry Weir built a course that Nico was afraid of and the unknown Aussies shredded! Bring it back to the West Coast! I vote Mammoth.

Reply to So, what about the Strava Heat Map? 5/17/2014 9:20 PM

Yeah, that Heat Map Crap sucks! Way to blow it Strava. There does not even need to be a segment, anyone can see where every strava user is riding. Really bad idea. I don't even see why they would want to do this, what is the benefit? Strava will soon ... more »

Looking into the crystal ball; hacked together 650b Stumpy (29er front end, new rear + linkage+ shock) released late spring/summer to salvage some lost sales. Real version redesign 650b Stumpy for next model year. There will be some blown up Enduro World ... more »

Reply to 2014 World Cup Downhill & Enduro Bikes, News and Photos 3/19/2014 3:21 PM

Of course it's a Specialized 27.5/650B! They stand to lose tons of cash in the current market without a 27.5 offering. It is truly a case of the customer (and dealers) demanding a product and Specialized having to comply. I am sure more models will follow....

Really, EC running the Specialized DH Team?? What happened to Hyper (or whatever it was)? Hopefully he lasts longer than Ska Todd did....which was about a month after Mr. Hill came to Speshy.
