He wasn't posting an argument, he was posting a rule for the website. This is a widely accepted etiquette in mountain biking and like Spomer said there are plenty of reasons for it. If you don't know why then get out and travel and ride more spots and ... more »

Race coverage! I really like race reports from other countries and would be stoked to see more coverage of US regional series as well.

I like my Sensus grips, plus Howie's handwriting on the packing makes me feel good inside. Like I'm part of the Big Brother Big Sister program.

QBP is a distributor for Eastern so any local shop should be able to order you one without being a dealer.

You mean trails in the BMX sense not the XC sense, right? I like the geometry of my Thunderbird for trails in the BMX sense, can't tell you about the Traildigger though. Their completes aren't the best but they get the job done for sure.

Stroh's is my standby, but I think my favorite is Ska Brewery's Pinstripe Red. Shit is tasty.

Pretty sure Pueblo is dry if you're looking to get out on the trail bike.

Reply to do old but healed injuries hold you back? 3/2/2010 9:56 AM
