Done deal?

I was curious, as he hashtagged his YT farewell instagram post with #goodtimes as the only hashtag, which is a hashtag that GT and GT riders use pretty often. Also curious if GT is going to be putting out a new Fury this year. It's ALSO GT's 50th anniversary this coming year.

#goodtimes is a YT hashtag, it's used in the marketing as well.

Ahh yep. You're right. I see the hashtag #goodtimes on their posts as well. I guess a lot of people use the hashtag/saying (FastHouse does as well, I believe).

Elan Skis uses 'Always Good Times'.

Look no further than my 11 year old as an example of what sells bikes. Raised with Rampage, Crankworx and WC media coverage he stills goes back to watching old editions of his favorite events. He's a two weeks a year park rat and wants a DH bike someday. This year we let him choose his next bike and his top choices, Propain, Commencal and Trek (we intervened though and got him a Transition). He admires Gwin but has no interest in a YT or Intense. Remy's early shredits on Commencal are forever embedded in his memory and now not only does he want a Propain but every component he uses as well. Trek, Gwin in his prime, Cam Mcall, the IFHT guys, Jackson Goldstone, Brandon, Brett....

He loves Loic and Finn but not interested in Specialized, when was the last time someone rode one at Rampage? Big Seth fan but doesn't know what bike he rides. Marketing people better be paying attention, the next generation has the potential to be a huge market.

Greg, Laurie and Dak as a squad would absolutely dominate. All three are both good at riding with a team or solo and doing well.

Hum... Chloe Taylor is no longer in the Privateer team too... Or they stop the program, either they step up in the game.

Gwin takes the whole YT team to intense as a big but classy middle finger to YT and MW, Neko to head up Jr. development, and Dak and David T race elite with Aaron.

eddy masters in a specialized video and it doesnt say he is on pivot

12/22/2021 2:48 PM

Pretty sure Specialized wouldn't mention that Ed is on Pivot in one of their promotional pieces..

Is no one going to talk about Luca Shaw, riding a trek in a picture on a certain French guys insta........

Ed and the Vanzacs need to grow the hell up. That Vanzacs calendar is in poor taste and is also just absolute garbage. It's not what we need in cycling.

Sounds like you are getting a bit old mate, is it past your bed time?

The Vanzacs are exactly what the sport needs amongst all the UCI douchiness

Don't forget where it all came from.

Welcome to Mountain biking buddy

what calendar? (asking for a friend who appreciates poor taste)

1) What calendar? Also asking for a friend.

2) Did you all pick up that Charlie Murray (Chaz Maz) has only been seriously riding bikes for 4 years? So crazy.

3) Eddie is in that video because he (and Pivot) basically supported Charlie in his first year racing abroad before he got his deal with Specialized.

Ed deleted his post promoting it, and it's since been deleted from the Vanzacs feed as well. T&A calendar and video/photo shoot, with calendars being sold.

Maybe some of the teenagers who replied to me above saved the videos and screenshots.

Man, I bet that was some drama. Batty doesn't hold back.

A little surprised at the vanzacs They seem more like the type that would do an ironic pinup calendars of themselves in tighty whities than bikini girls.

Let's just say it gave some old muc-off and marzocchi adverts a run for their money.

Zinc, Pierron and the Vanzacs team up for 2022. You've heard it here first.

WTF do these people think is going to happen when you post/do crap like that? Are you trying to torpedo your sponsorship deals?

Amanda Batty's post was what was needed, apparently.

thanks for the info on the calendar. figured it involved lighting things on fire or driving recklessly, not t&a stuff

That's what I was expecting too, was pretty bummed when I saw the posts and what was in the calendar.

I'm a big fan of most of Eddy and the Vanzac's shenanigans, the calendar was straight-up offensive.
