Wait for the 29er to explode when someone over 150lbs finally tries to ride one fast.

Man I hate this shit. Lourdes comes in says "hey remember awesomeness?", blows up my brain, then WC mountain biking disappears for months. You cruel whore! I have feelings too! Cairns doesn't count. That track needs to fuck off to 1812 where it came ... more »

Just more dumb shit that surly will come up with in a drunken rage that three years later specialized jumps on as 'the hawt new thing' and every dickbag with a 3 figure salary and two days a week of ride time will buy in spades. In the meantime tires ... more »

Pssh. No advice to give. I've been pretty awesome this whole time. Okay maybe drop the body armor.

And I still flip my visor down when the sun's in my face because that's what it's fucking there for. But poptarts NOT race food? Come on BT. ... more »

Reply to What Would You Do for MTB if You Won the $1,300,000,000 Powerball Jackpot? 1/8/2016 8:21 AM

1: Make sure the sustainable trails coalition had enough scratch to do what they need to do. 2: Hire bike park managers that have a F@#$%ing clue at every mountain on the west coast. They can't seem to manage that on their own. 3: Fest series park in ... more »

No metallica or megadeth on that list, but sweet child 'o mine is? If I could walk right now, I'd come over there and kick you in the fetus.

Reply to Is White is the New Black? 1/5/2016 7:56 AM

Well just like 2.8 tires, fanny packs, and oval chainrings, there's now a whole new generation of riders who just showed up since imba done growed the sport who haven't learned the lessons of the first time around. So again, a whole new population of ... more »

My favorite is the swat bib! What's yours? 2016 will be interesting. But not because of endurpadurp.

Reply to How do you guys store your bikes? 11/16/2015 7:43 PM

I own shimano brakes on all of mine so I try to store them anyway possible that's not straight up. That way when I roll out into the street and realize my brakes need to be pumped 20 times before they work, it makes it a lot more exciting in traffic. ... more »

"say?" What does one "say?" to people racing(sic) uphill on e-bikes? Nothing a super soaker and balloons with salt water couldn't say better.

Reply to 26" Wheel on a 27.5 Bike? 10/20/2015 7:28 AM

Is this on a 6" or less travel trail bike? If so you should be fine. I wouldn't do it on a dh bike at 13.8. People talk about individual bikes and whether those bikes give them "pedal strikes™" as if it's the bike doing everything. Just use your eyes ... more »

Reply to 26" Wheel on a 27.5 Bike? 10/20/2015 7:15 AM

I've done it with two different bikes, including the trail bike I'm currently riding. With the same 27.5 fork or a 26" fork with a 10mm higher axle to crown, you'll drop about half an inch. With a 26" fork, you'll drop about 0.7" Depends on the frame ... more »
