Pink ... that would mean one girl less at Rocky Mountain then?

Respect. Heaps of it.

Reply to did you ride this weekend? 5/9/2011 8:41 AM

I went and tested my "new" ride on a proper Track (with a lift) for the first time. I didn´t manage to do as many runs as I probably could have and still woke up to sore shoulders the morning after. It was pretty enjoyable though, the conditions were ... more »

Reply to Spy Shots! New Short Cage XTR DH Derailleur? 5/8/2011 10:32 AM

I guess it depends on where one lives (or rather where conti shipped it already). CRC only has the old ones in stock while one of the larger german online retailers already has the new ones available.

I´d say they are Kaisers:

On a different note, what´s that tube around the shifting line for? Any ideas? As for the mech, I sort of don´t care as long as it isn´t out on the market ... but when it is, I´d like to see a review on Vital ... more »
Reply to What body armor do you wear for DH?? 3/25/2011 2:32 PM

My gear depends on what I ride. For the odd evening ride down the local trail I just wear some Oneal knee protectors and the obvious fullface. More gear is a) too heavy and b) overkill on that particular trail. On the other hand, if I get me and my bike

Oh yeah, good Point. Actually, I´ll give up Mountain biking and just go ride my roadbike or have the odd street session. Oh wait, there´s cars on the road. And pedestrians in the street. And cops. And air pollution. Dogs. Kids. Signs. Buildings. Frickin´ ... more »

rusty, that´s one of the "evergreen" questions. Especially at well-known venues like Schladming, Fort Bill or Mont Saint Anne. The course usually doesnt change as much over the years and thus you have to reinvent yourself every season. Weather can change ... more »

The downtube isn´t hydroformed, it´s bent, just like the rest of the tubing. No huge tricks and expensive machinery (in a relative sense) here, just good craftsmanship. Am I wrong with suspecting that that´s a VPP design? The amount of metal below the ... more »

I´m using a friends´ ColorMunki. The corresponding application works well and with a little practice you´re done in about 15 Minutes for a dual-screen Setup. Although Calibration isn´t all and everything, a consistant workflow is just as important. And ... more »

That´s a tough call. One of my best friends who also happens to be a photog owns that Sigma as well and I have to say it´s very nice indeed. What you get, apart from the stop more, is mainly less. And by less I mean less depth of field which can be very ... more »

Hey everyone. Since I´m most probably not as well known as Flipper, Sven or Stikman, I´ll introduce myself. Briefly, promise. My Name is Philipp and I´ve been on and off shooting world cups (all disciplines) since 2007, pretty much exclusively in europe

2011 Avid Code R (already loving it!), tools and a few other bits and bobs

That´s a Last Herb DH. Last is a small german (and rider-owned) company that produces this wonderful frame among a few other things. It´s also been featured in last year´s Dirt 100. A friend of mine bought one and I wanted one ever since. The ride´s

I managed to break and dislocate my collarbone (and a bone chip) in october 2007 while dirtjumping on a bike that´s not meant to do be used for that. I found that out afterwards, of course. I took me 4 months to even get on a bike again and another 2

Reply to All-Mountain Tires? 12/7/2010 3:35 PM

I used Maxxis Ardents in 2,4 both front and rear (not a big fan of mixing when I don´t know both tires very well) and was happy with them, they even held up to heavier duty use in the Bikepark. I sold that bike recently and got Conti rubber queens (2,4/BlackChiliCompound) ... more »

That thing looks huge and pretty heavy. Good idea, if it wasnt for the weight....

Nah, I´ll keep my chain. Besides, I think we´ll get cold fusion before that makes it onto a production DH bike.

It´s good to see the UCI going public with this, it will certainly help the sport and also make the life for everyone at the events easier. My biggest wish: Unified "must-have" standards for media centres, like bottled water for take away, maybe some
