bruce klein off KHS Along with the new year comes some very exciting news, but first I want to say a massive thank you to all the homies at @khsfactoryracing and @khsbicycles for their support this past season! We did some pretty incredible things, race wise, in such a quick year and had such a blast while doing it! With the support from these guys I rode to my first National win, first National Series Title, first International podium, first full season of World Cup downhill including two top 20 results, first Elite World Champs, and managed to obtain very close to all of my goals. I started out the World Cup season not even able to qualify but with the support and knowledge from these guys, I was able to continue progression and finish in the top 20 at World Champs! It's been a hell of time traveling with @quintonspaulding, @loganbinggeli, @seamuspowell, and everyone else who participated along the way! They opened the door for me to chase my dreams and although it was a big learning year, we crushed it! We will be parting ways for the future but I'll always be stoked to see you guys at the races! A massive thank you to Q for providing a position for myself to learn, progress, and continue growing the fire that burns inside to reach my best! I wish all the best to you boys and see ya at the races! ??❤️?

hey gary, i don't really think you'd get a lot of fun or use out of that motobecane. it looks awkward w/ poor geometry and cheap components. i'm surprised it costs so much. that looks like a $500-700 bike. a quick look online turned up the following ... more »

wow, thanks for all the responses everyone! the diversity in reasoning for bike choice is pretty freaking rad to see.

New thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/13/2017 2:53 PM

with trail bikes, i'm just curious if anyone moved to a 29er from 27.5 (or even 26 i guess) but then decided 27.5 was better for them and switched back. if so, what kind of trails were you riding regularly and / or what was your reasoning? ... more »
