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.

Shimano Di2 XTR - Long-Term Review
I can afford it but I still don't want it. My XX1 kit is now 3 seasons old and has barely needed to be touched. Great gearing and it just works.

Opinion: Thanks
I've been a loyal follower since 93. I've learned many things from you over the years. Even bought a few bikes purely on your recommendation. That's serious trust considering their cost. Thanks for everything you've done for all of us and the sport we love.

Review: FOX Float X2 Shock
At least RockShox will warranty your Pike for two years. I blew up both my Pike and my POS Fox CTD shock in the last Month. RockShox says no problem we will fix it. Fox says we will fix it but since it's one and one month old it's gonna cost you about $200 bucks. Shit I'll just bite the bullet and spend a little more and put a Monarch on my bike. I've only owned 1 Fox Fork that didn't need sent back for warranty service in less than a couple months. As for Manitou I never had one fail, fork or shock.

I really enjoy your bikes. I speak for a lot of people on this. Could you please tone down the graphics a bit. Cable routing could use some improvement as well. Aside from that keep up the good work.

Pinkbike Poll: What Area of Mountain Bike Technology Needs the Most Improvement?
I tired to get a Nicolai Helius but they sold out almost immediately. The question was what products need improving to make bikes better. At this point the only part of my bike that I think about when plowing down and techy bit of trail is my rear mech getting torn off. Not my suspension, dropper, brakes, tires, wheels, or shifter ect. Gearboxes are in their infancy that's why r@d dollars should be spent on them. The gear box would not only make the drivetrain less valnerable it you improve suspension performance and end this ever widening rear hub nonsense. We probably won't see a truly revolutionary gear box until more people try to build one. The potential is too great not to try.

Review: Fi’zi:k M3B Uomo Shoes
I spent a lot of money and wasted a lot of time trying to find a pair of shoes that didn't kill my feet or fall apart or both. Full customs are my only option. I get a lot of shit for paying what I paid for my D2s but all my friends who ride a lot are going through at least one pair of shoes a season. Either they don't fit well or they fall apart. To be honest I don't ride in mud unless I get caught in a storm. Colorado Mud isn't really rideable and due to the sensitive nature of our trails and access issues. I strongly encourage others to Not ride when it's muddy here. I do spent a lot of time riding in the snow though. The first year I had my D2s I logged over 5000 miles from from January -June. Lots of century rides that winter a couple doubles as well.
