Eric has been riding for Full Speed Ahead and Gravity Components since its inception and has had a key role in product development through rider feedback. In this episode Eric explains why he uses the FSA Orbit Option Angle Adjust Headset that allows the rider to change the head tube angle on his bike.

 Haha, you'd be surprised at how small the freeride scene is here in northern Utah. Its strange considering the south and the fact that Deer Valley has held multiple world cups. The Canyons Bike Park, Arcylon and the Trailside Park are really the first signs of the bike park-styled riding here... with the exception of Bobsled of course. Although the XC scene is pretty untouchable in terms of quantity, if you're into that style of trails. It may be more friendly here, although the Canyons kind of shot that when they put dangerous logs and bars down on the only DH trail to the base in order for hikers to use it, but I hear the bike community in Cali is pretty wild and strong. But I guess that depends what area of Cali you're in because I also hear some areas suck really bad, mainly with the vain-ass people.

 Dude, you ever ridden in Utah? The FR scene here is big. You need to get out more

 Haha, well I guess all those other guys that agree with me, including a few who are way more in touch the mtb community around here than I am, need to get out more as well. I forgot to mention the Raspberry Lane trail because the newly added top section, thanks to the hard effort of Bender and his friends, is awesome. BIG BERMS Smile

 I don't know, the mountain bike hypocrisy is strong in Portland, Oregon. It makes it even more annoying that they claim to be "America's Bike City" yet there is less than a mile of legal singletrack in town.

 ^ Its because you were in Portland, haha. Next time you're there stop at the Dragon Herbarium, pick up some My Thai kratom and drive the hour/hour and a half over to Hood River to ride the Post Canyon Trails. I guarantee you'll change your mind about the area. Its extremely reminiscent of the EC... if the EC was on roids.
