It should be noted that Ethan showed impressive speed before a concussion put him off the bike for a year and a half. Even if his dad weren't running the team, he's earned the chance to come back. The flip side of that coin is that Katy didn't fall off ... more »

I think we are on the same page, but coming at it from different angles. I think we need longer chainstays for the current reach values so that we don't have to weight the bikes with our hands, and think pros may be sizing down and running narrower bars ... more »

The trend toward longer reaches concerns me for that reason. Bike companies are pushing for a change in rider style as they make longer bikes, but I haven't heard a single instructor agree with that push. Humans are bipeds, not quadripeds. I think this ... more »

I've been playing around with bar height, and think two things are worth pointing out: 1. The vast majority of mtb instructors will tell you not to weight the bars with your hands (front end weighting should occur through all of your weight running through ... more »

But if a pole from the left side of the track gets stuck in the left side of the bike, you're always inside that pole and that pole also becomes the previous course marker for as long as it's stuck! Thus, Finn could've ridden anywhere to the left of the right-hand course markers for as long as the pole remained stuck!

On a serious note, Grice is one of the most humble and hardworking people I've ever ridden with. He deserves all the success coming his way.

One of the worst feelings. Typically things don't get better from that moment on.

You know a huck is tough when you watch half of the best riders in the world mistime their pop. One of the worst feelings when you drive your legs into the pedals and don’t feel any upward acceleration.

She goes off in the same manner, but she goes around a pole or two instead of riding over one.

Added reply in a thread UCI DH Rule Unclear - DSQ for Riding Over a Course-Marking Pole? 10/16/2020 12:39 PM

I’ve always interpreted the rule to mean that the tires can’t pass the tip of the pole to its outside. That’s why it was legal for riders to clip the pole when hitting the stump gap last week. Given that interpretation, Angel shouldn’t be DQed. However, ... more »

How is dropping the term going to hurt you? Its use hurts others, and it's not up to you to declare that it doesn't. Clearly, you just wish your viewpoint to be privileged over those of marginalized people. And yes, they are marginalized; the continued skepticism towards the wishes...more

How will those experiencing the means to acquire fine taste express brand loyalty without a trendy name for their exclusive group to lord over the proletariat?

Added reply in a thread 2.3mm rotors on Shimano brakes? 5/7/2020 10:11 AM

I’ve found 160mm rotors have too little stopping power in some situations. I can’t imagine trying to stop with 2.3mm rotors. Do you only ride in the flattest fields in the middle of Kansas on trails with zero turns?

Added reply in a thread Discussion: Fork Damping vs Spring Rate 7/25/2019 12:10 PM

It's not always true that slower rebound equals more traction, is it? Faster rebound can imply the tire more quickly returning to the ground in choppy sections, and should also imply more force directly into the ground after compressions (assuming the ... more »

I'm in a comparable boat with my 36 RC2, which is actually the biggest reason I haven't done the Grip2 damper upgrade. I'm 155-160lbs with 61psi, one token, HSC 2 clicks from fully open, LSC 5 clicks from fully open, and rebound as fast as I can get ... more »
