Bikethrasher

I'm a Trail rider through and through.
I'm never satisfied, Thus I am constantly searching for the perfect trail bike. This being the case. I spend lots of time and money demoing bikes. I generally don't comment on bikes unless I've ridden them. I sacrifice pretty much everything for the sake of owning really nice bikes.

Pinkbike Poll: Will You Consider Buying a 27.5+ Bike?
Finally got out for a ride last week. Had a great time. Funny all of us on different sized wheels and none us feel that there is a major benefit from one to another. All of us agreed that we would be happy with a 26. The only problem with that is. We aren't the majority! No fellow Pinkbikers we sadly are the minority. You and I we know what we want. Ask anyone here how they would spec out a new bike and they'd roll out a list of every part. The majority on the other hand. Pick up a magazine or roll into a shop and buys what ever is the latest and suposably greatest of the moment. Or worse yet. Whatever is pushed on them. How many people do you see on the trail that are less than 5'5" on a Niner. Specialized, Trek your dealers are the most at fault. When it comes to pushing bikes on people.

Legit, Commencal, Mongoose - Sea Otter 2015
You would be correct sir. It's almost always about the bottom line.

Videos From The Lourdes DH World Cup 2015
Unfortunately the life of a pro athlete can be and often times is very painful. Ive had more than my fair share of injuries. So I have a great amount of respect for for these guys. Keep pedaling the the world and pain will eventually fade away.

Video: A Good Hardtail is Like a Good Espresso Coffee
Took my beater Hardtail out for a rip this morning. No name fork that barely works and I don't care. One brake that sorta works. One gear and all steel. Pure and simple and always puts a smile on my face.

Pinkbike Poll: How Much Are Name-Brand Components and Interchangeability Worth?
This is a argument is pretty rediculous. The fact is when you buy a high end mtn bike it's pretty much the same bike the pros are riding. Yeah they are expensive but we can and do get the best of of the best. When you buy a high end Moto from the dealer. Your getting a bike that isn't even close to what the pros are riding. It's not even remotely close. Consider this the Fork on James Stewart's Suzuki is rumored to cost over $60,000. No kidding. Don't think for a second they stopped at the fork. His bike would cost well over a 100k to replicate. An over the top pro mtn bike build might run 12k.

Trail Report - Sarlacc Trail
My biggest grip with Vail is that they have over 5000 acres to work with and they utilize less than a thousand of that for riding. There is no reason that Vail can't have a bike park on par with Whistler. The towns of Eagle and Avon have both spent some money on trails and are already seeing money come back into the towns because of those trails. Since then there has been talk of greatly expanding the trail System on Vail Mtn. Lets hope they take a trip to Whistler to see what a real bike park should look like first. Vail is big enough that it could easily have over two hundred miles of trails. Their full lease covers over 7400 acres. From Vail pass to Red Cliff.

Trail Report - Sarlacc Trail
The mayor of Vail Andy Daly bought it with some partners. For pennies on the dollar. Vail people for what ever reason haven't embraced the mountain bikers they way they embrace the ski race crowd. Even though the last World Cup Mtn bike race held on Vail mountain drew the biggest crowd ever to Vail. The town of Palasade was talking about running a shuttle from town up to powder horn. They have also been talking with powder horn to get the lifts running in the summer. Apparently there is a pretty good trail system that runs all the way back to town. Hopefully it works out. I think it would benifit both Powder horn and the town of Palasade.

Ask Pinkbike: Kickers, Spoke Protectors, and the RockShox Pike vs the Fox 36 fork
Having ridden about 100 miles or so on the new 36. I'll keep my Pike. Not that the 36 isn't good. It just isn't as good as my Pike.
