Added a comment about video Riding Western Colorado to Eastern Utah with Quintin Kurtz 5/20/2019 7:46 AM

Angry as a person? Nope, not remotely. Pretty relaxed, actually.

Angry that a style of riding that has been shown to damage trails is being cavalierly promoted across the interwebs? You bet.

I've been riding off-road for more than 30 years. Riding -- on quality trails -- means a lot to me. Seeing trails devolve as rapidly as they have the last ~5 years is a bummer. It doesn't have to be this way, and letting people know that their "chill shredit" has crossed the line is one small way to attempt to turn the tide.

Please help.

I stopped watching at ~45 seconds. Skidding damages these trails. Period. Full stop.

Glorifying the act of skidding tells the next generation that it's OK, and then instead of one douchebag skidding we have a whole generation doing it.

Stop the insanity -- this includes you, Vital, for encouraging it by not discouraging it.

First time I've ever thought that yeah, a gravel-specific bike makes sense.

Of course, no one that owns a gravel bike will ever ride it like this, so nevermind.

You sound hypocritical Loic. You're OK with the suspension constantly improving, OK with carbon prototype everything, OK with an increase from 26 to 27.5, OK with the heaps of technology that keep air inside your tires despite what you do to them, but this is a bridge too far?

You get to feel however you want, and you get to race whatever you want. You just don't elucidate good rationale for your decisions.

Added reply in a thread Should There Be a 29er DH Class and 27.5 DH Class at World Cups? 5/1/2017 7:14 AM

Lenz built several DH bikes before that Intense prototype. It's called the PBJ, it's still in production, and it's been continually refined since. Was it world-cup worthy? Nope -- that wasn't the intent, knowing that it'd be a long time until racers ... more »

In 2019 the public will have been riding 29" for DH for more than 10 years.

So, a few years ago -- and even last year -- they were lacking, and now they're cheating?! That's effectively the line that people are pushing. I could twist that around and say that if a smaller guy has a smaller frame and smaller wheels, then he's ... more »

There already is a 27.5 class -- it's called 'amateurs'. 26" class too -- 'juniors'. This brouhaha is hilarious. Years ago all yins here and at PB kept telling each other 29" couldn't do this, or that. Wheels were too weak, tires too flimsy, yadayada. ... more »

Can bikes even be ridden without a truck, chairlift, or smartphone present anymore?

More and more, the vision you present here would say no.

Each time you guys post a neuvo-hipster hashtag with fatbike negativity, you make yourselves look more and more like the clueless douches over at pinkbike.

Just because you fail to understand where fat rims and tires are and are not needed, doesn't mean that they aren't indeed needed to ride certain trail conditions.

Bron may indeed shred harder than I've ever dreamed, but he would have been in much more control had he been on fatter tires.
