Mmm, that they also have still Graves.

Perhaps a bit too much credit to the Athertons? Long time friends with the guys at Robot Bike Co, who worked with Dave Weagle. Become a new brand with a new name, add investor. Genuine disruption? Or scale up something that already existed? Dunno.

I think Norco does that. Want long? 455ish mm on my Banshee Prime using their 'long' drop-outs.

Right, only Cody Kelley is shown on their Racing page, ironically she's in the original video on the same page. Figured something was up with her not attending most of the EWS this season. Hope she comes back strong in 2019.

This is my speed bump, I mean trail dog. A 9 year old Vizsla. He kicked my butt last night.

Yup in central Colorado a few here and there.

This just makes me wonder how much one should pay a guy for riding his bike fast down a hill only 8 times in a year really. I know, there is much much much more to it. But only 8 real races a year, it's pretty silly imho.

No doubt Keene's fast, but if you compare EWS results from 2015 to 2014, it's pretty simple. Slower in races, bad luck etc, pretty sure he's not too happy with it either. I've met Curtis once, spoke briefly with him at Winter Park. Really nice guy, down ... more »

Seriously doubt Curtis minds, he knows he didn't perform well this year and Graves can only help him, especially if 2016 might be his last chance at Specialized. Still don't understand if letting Beerten go was their choice, such a badass female rider ... more »

getting things mixed up, it's Lew Buchanan who is on Banshee.

Reply to Share Your Tubeless Tips 11/30/2015 4:24 PM

Brand new folding bead tires might not seat easily right out of the package because they have folds in them beads still, so unpack and unfold and let them sit (lay) for a few days if not in a hurry. Or set them up with a tube first and let things stretch ... more »

That's such nonsense about Anneke's performance. She had a great year, especially at Whistler, if we use your logic then Curtis gets the boot over Anneke for sure...

Reply to Do you use climbing-specific suspension features like lock-out? 1/12/2015 2:38 PM

typically leave my Float CTD in Trail, it only goes to Climb when I know the long climb ahead or to D in case of a familiar technical downhill. Bike is a Banshee Spitfire V2.

Amen to that! All the places I had no reason to visit but for a mountain bike trail that needed to be checked out, or an event, race, whatever. The planning of trips & rides. Poorly written reviews on the internet, a lack of good maps & directions. ... more »

I don't see a problem with that. They can have the road.
