If timed training meant anything, Gwin would never have a race win to his name. Some try to get up to speed early, others use the time to analyze lines.

Added a comment about press release X-Fusion Shox Announces H3C Rear Shock and Coil Spring System 5/4/2019 8:47 AM

I'd have to do some digging again. I researched it a while back due to wanting to run a coil on whatever trail bike I got. Perhaps what I read was misleading review info, but it sure sounded like it came Ibis. Combined with the leverage chart from - http://linkagedesign.blogspot.com/2018/04/ibis-ripmo-29-2019.html I decided it wasn't progressive enough for a coil shock to work properly under me.

Kind of strange they're promoting the shock pictured on a Ripmo, when Ibis says it's not a good platform for a coil shock.

Why troll with a pic of an eBike that obviously isn't a Class 1 pedal assist? The hate is deep enough without conjuring up images of guys twisting throttle and roosting out favorite trails. For the sake of clarity and perspective, I own and ride an eBike ... more »

It's an enormous waste of time and a great way to get tired before your race. There are races where walking the tracks could mean 12 miles of hiking before your race, after getting off a plane from the other side of the planet. We have...more

Follow a nautical theme, names from famous ships(real or not) Black Pearl, Bounty, Jolly Roger, Victory, Endeavour, Dreadnought. But maybe stay away from stuff like Titanic, Lusitania.

Any places nearby with lift service? Doing a park day is so much fun. Your still progress dramatically and it’s kind of an equalizer if your riding with others much fitter than you. Getting that much vertical in a day will up your motivation for the ... more »

I’ve been following Joey since his DH days and love the adventure vibe. Get out there and make your own adventure, whatever scale it is. Also a great reminder about the NOLS wilderness courses. Wilderness first aid should get more press given how much MTB’ers are away from emergency services. For what we spend on our bikes and gear, a NOLS course should be high up on the list.

Looks like a simpler replacement for the hub disconnect they were testing a while back

Listening to these past 2 casts made sorta nostalgic and actually buy a print mtb mag today *gasp*. Definitely miss Decline, loved the larger format. Unique content will always be relevant, not the identical timed press release articles so often seen now.

Yet somehow still missed the lower part of the track that so many lost time in. Oh well, they try to anticipate the areas of most interest but you never know till race day comes. I was wondering if the lower portion was taken for granted by too many riders and they didn’t pay enough attention to it.

The effective seat tube angle is measured along a line from the BB to the top of the seatpost where it is level with the top of the headtube. I'm 1m84, but I have disproportionately long legs, so I'm quite sensitive to this particular aspect of bike geometry. On the Capra 27, I...more
