Nerds!

I'll buy a brake for a myriad of reasons, but what fluid is in them is not going to be the determining factor (at all). I do hope someone does an updated test like this with all the new stoppers... https://enduro-mtb.com/en/best-mtb-disc-brake-can-buy/ ... more »
Added reply in a thread Is the EWS dead? 10/4/2022 4:25 AM

DCamp nailed this one. Few more thoughts... 1) Look at the results list at an EWS. These people are literally putting their life on the line, and I know a handful of the riders. This shows how poor the coverage is. Frankly, the best thing enduro had ... more »

Added reply in a thread World Cup Prize Money Needs to Increase 9/25/2022 6:28 AM

I could probably go find an old Ridemonkey thread from the mid 2000s with roughly the same title and same back and forths. The reality is, the prize money will not materially change if the riders keep showing up to race. This won't change unless there

Anyone suggesting a company can't make a light enough XC bike out of aluminum I'd suggest you open the history books. There were a myriad of light alloy XC FS bike back in the day. If you take modern manufacturing techniques, some sort of flex-stay design ... more »

Added reply in a thread COVID & Bike Fitness 9/13/2022 7:56 AM

We seem very similar in almost every single way here. My case was mostly reflected in a fever/fatigue/flu like symptoms. I also have the ebb and flow between good and bad days. (but the good days still aren't as good - the clock doesn't lie!) My descending ... more »

Started new thread COVID & Bike Fitness 9/12/2022 2:49 PM

At risk of starting the dumpster fire of all dumpster fire threads, I wanted to see if anyone around here has struggled with fitness following COVID. Though I am by no means as bad off as some, I've noticed my all-out efforts are ~10% off my best from ... more »

Added reply in a thread Has Red Bull Hardline gone too far? 9/10/2022 5:14 AM

Its not a World Cup. It is quiet literally the event to see what "too hard" looks like with "no pressure" (there is always pressure) if you withdraw. That said, giant jumps that are bike breaking are probably "too far". Once we get to a certain size ... more »

1. Gwin for podium...and he was in just a single clip
2. Love the lack of scream of DT hubs
3. Benoit is pissed
4. Danny's mustard & green kit reminds me of WalMart clothing
5. That 100% kit that's got the blue jean color on it is equallyWalmart style
6. Nina is riding...more

Vital could you guys figure out why Brage isn’t on the list? I think everyone who cares about this event is surprised he wasn’t invited back. I get he crashed but his riding speaks for itself. Did he get an invitation and decline?

Added reply in a thread 2023 TEAM RUMORS 8/13/2022 4:54 AM

Few points to consider here. First, the bike community seems to really want an F1 style world cup circuit. Something that spans the globe, features more races than we currently have, is covered extensively and is fun to watch. You know what that takes? ... more »

Hard to deny this. Especially when so much of the racing is done on trails you can just go...ride. Run strava if you want to see how you stack up lol I was going through all the races I've done over the years, the best (on the gravity side) always involved ... more »

One of the cool parts about Vital is the number of racers who frequent the site. I'd wager there are tens of thousands of race starts among the community. Having completed a race this weekend where the promotor blew the "easy stuff", I thought "boy, ... more »
