Cranks, sprocket, pedals, grips, maybe stem, maybe seatpost, seat. That's all you can put on a dirt or slope MTB from a BMX. Sell your BMX full and buy a brand new dirt MTB, that's more profitable. And if you absolutely want to put your cranks on a MTB, ... more »

Some Schwalbe Magic Mary bikepark, DH tubes and he'll never see another flat

So the only three guys who ride Rampage this year, and not being supported by RedBull, Monster or Rockstar are Rémy Metailler, Vinny T and PEF. But PEF rides for Fox (and it seems impossible that he has signed with an energy drink brand), Rémy rides ... more »

As somewhat of a representative from Cush Core I can tell you that it will not stop tires from ripping.As much as we would love to stop 100% of flats, it just simply cannot be done in this day and age. This track was full of shape, angular rocks and I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that...more

It was a deduction, maybe false, maybe true. Neither Pierron nor Daprela are mentionned on the CushCore website.

No problem with that, that's understandable. My intention was precisely to read this type of answer, that CushCore (and other tire inserts) are not (yet) the Graal.

It IS a Photoshop, coming from the FB page "Downhill memes". Aaron just likes to troll all of us ^^ Proof.

Added reply in a thread Is There a Sweet Spot for Flat Pedal Pin Height? 4/6/2018 12:31 AM

I ran Shimano Saint with "long" pins. That was good. Then I ran (and run) some TMac's, with standard pins (not that long in my opinion) and those are astonishingly grippy. Even too much grip in certain conditions (to replace the feet for example). I ... more »

After seeing Damian Oton and Yoann Barelli's brake setup I gave it a try. It works wonders in reducing arm pump. Seriously worth trying out.

This is my MTB nightmare--get up the courage to sign up for a race, then the conditions go to complete shit, and I get heckled by a couple of frat boys who are going to post my sad flailing on the internets.

Could not agree more about finding the limits of a bike and how much fun that is, that’s why I recently swapped from a Patrol to a Scout and am very happy I did. Great review BT

Looks like we'll see A LOT of little lever at the left of the bars. I don't like the track (there are safety concerns everywhere I look on the video...), but at least it will be a challenge for the engineers with a good tier of big rocks, another tier of... litteraly nothing and a last tier of flat asphalt and tight turns.

My bets are on the fittest athletes. Bulldog for the win ?

For me that's Deity Compound when not in big need of grip (like in street/trials, or dirt. But these are grippier than Wellgo MG-1 or even Shimano Saint -with stock pins-), and T-Macs when a lot of grip is needed (but costly...).

Agreed, by far the best article and pics on the Capra that appeared online today. Well done! Nothing game changing but another solid and well priced bike from YT. A shoot out with the Enduro, Nomad and Wreckoning would be fun.
