Added reply in a thread How to make the industry more sustainable? 11/13/2021 8:58 PM

The industry can quit making disposable shit. And people need to get over the weight of bikes. I know that 97-99% of riders could up their fitness or loose weight and both of those things would make more of a difference than some disposable part that ... more »

I have one. I like it. I can’t say compared to a Fox 38 or RS Zeb it’s better or worse because I haven’t rode one. I really like a direct mount style stem which you can’t to with a single crown. The damper and air spring work well. I do think MRPs suggested ... more »

Your completely missing the point. It’s giving certain people a large advantage. Yes racing is supposed to fun, it’s also supposed to be fair.

It says “heat dissipating paint” so I’m guessing it has some metal in it that helps draw the heat away from the breaking surface

Everyone that is there gets to race. It’s not like a normal World Cup since you have to be invited/with your country’s team. I think you to have to start qualifying to be eligible for finals, hence why Tahnee just just the line and didn’t do a run.

Damn. That crash looked unreal--like a video game where the ragdoll physics are exaggerated. Gee is one tough dude. Respect to him for showing the reality of this project, not just the sanitized highlight reel. More people should understand the kind of risk...more

Despite recent interest from the mainstream world, mountain biking still isn't cool.

He is a little “unhinged” to quote Mick Hannah, I don’t care about his hair cut or some stupid video. I just want to see him back riding a bike like a maniac.

I would disagree, most bikes are very well built now. They do require semiannual maintenance but as long as your ride isn’t a clapped out POS it should be fine for many seasons if maintained.

Not true. If you increase reach you should increase the chain stays to receive the same ride characteristics. For this bike chainstays increase in about 4-5mm increments with the reach increasing in 25mm increments. On the new Evil the chainstays are the same for every size so a XL will ride differently than a small because of that smaller ratio as sizes increase

Seems like no body remembers how/why Fest series came about. I remember reading an article after the 2nd or 3rd one and Vink (pretty sure he was being interviewed) said they wanted a big air jam style event. Low key, low stress. Just pro level riders ... more »

Marin sounds like the worst place in the world to be a mountain biker. I’m always amazed at how terrible that place sounds.

Added reply in a thread Pick My Next Bike 2/26/2021 6:18 AM

I have a similar set up for bikes(V10 and Insurgent), if I was going to get another bike it would either be a more XC focused bike or a dirt jump/pump track bike. No point in having bikes that have a major overlap. Seems like you ride one and forget ... more »

True. And when people say brake jack they really mean squat. True brake jack, when the suspension decompresses, isn’t on many designs. My guess is Hart ran a floating brake arm to keep the suspension supple on the rough courses and was looking for every fraction of a second that he could.
