Shops can, and frankly already should, be informing customers about trail etiquette. As for the industry donating 1%, read BetteRide.net's post above.

And bonus, the more we mountain bikers contribute funds to land managers, the more likely they will be to listen to our concerns, making not only better trails, but opening more access (maybe some wilderness?) I mean who would you rather appease, the ... more »

There is a funding solution to get more money to land managers with an increase in use. In the US, there is an "excise tax" paid by manufactures of certain kinds of hunting equipment and fishing tackle. It is a percentage of the sales price. The funds ... more »

Umm, you guys think RR got of easy because he is a big name on a big team and is from the US? How big a name does he have? Well I asked my co-workers if they knew who Richie Rude is, to which I got silence. I asked if they know who Jared Graves is, and ... more »

Try pinkbike.com. While I much prefer vitalmtb for content and community, I believe pinkbike has the best bike classifieds on the web. Just be sure to get help from an adult who is experienced with buying from online classifieds to avoid scammers or ... more »

Good for x-ups, or good in general? The handlebar width has a huge impact on if you can do x-ups or not. Too wide and you end up hitting you knee or front of the saddle. A longer bike can have a wider bar while still doing x-ups. And a longer bike might ... more »

It might be okay, but the closest Bos service center to the US is in Mexico, so you will have to do pretty much all service and repair work on those yourself. If you really want to do X-ups, then get a single crown, but don't rule out forks like a 180mm ... more »

I just looked up the Axle to Crown lengths for the Boxxer and Totem, I didn't find numbers for 2007, but found them for 2008 and I don't think either fork changed between those years. The Totem is 3mm shorter than the boxxer, so there won't be much of ... more »

They have one, her name is Kathy Sessler. To the best of my knowledge, she is the only woman who manages a WC DH team, meaning the Syndicate is way ahead of the curve.

If you want to become a champion, you must think like a champion thinks. And what better way make your thoughts a champion's thoughts than to make your face a champion's face! Who knew plastic surgery had become so dialed!? However, this may cause problems ... more »

I'm going to be that guy. Who are the Afton Shoe athletes who got World Cup Podiums? I can't find any mention on Afton's website of who they sponsor to verify that claim.

The EWS did not say they are "washing their hands of this matter." They said they are not part of the investigation. In any case of cheating, the EWS is as much a victim as the cheated athletes, therefore, it would be wrong for a victim to be an active ... more »

Way to go Enve. Now just lower it by another $1,000 and you'll offer competitive pricing.

When I last talked to Evil in 2014, they told me they have no plans to make another DH bike. That said, if they changed their mind a couple of years later, then 2019 would be a likely year to go into production. However, most of their new bikes have ... more »
