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. Still haven't ridden a 9er that I'd buy over a little wheeled bike but I still demo a bunch every year.
I sacrifice pretty much everything for the sake of owning really nice bikes.

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.

Pinkbike Poll: Oval Chainrings?
I've been running Rotor rings for many years now. They work well for me but they aren't for everyone. They are easier on my knees and I can push harder gears for longer. My XX1 setup took a bit to get used to round rings again. I finally got a Rotor Rex 32t ring for it. Noticeable improvement for me. Thinking I could easily get away with a 34t. Even up here in the high country.

Video: My Girlfriend is a Mountain Biker
My wife's a mountain biker. Gets all bumbed out when she can't ride. Gets all pissed when she can't keep up. Currently saving every penny she can for a new bike. She doesn't care that my bike is the most valuable possession I actually own. She doesn't freak out when I buy parts I don't really need. She doesn't like to cook or clean, and she's not really social. But I could care a less about all that. Our 2 little Rugrats are Mtn bikes too. Live to Ride. You can work til you die.

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
Don't mess with a good thing. Leave it up the the promoters to mix things up as they wish. Some easy transfers and some hard. It keeps things fresh and fully tests riders abilities. The climbs on many Enduro transfers are already as hard if not harder than most pro XC courses. In order to access the terrain the better enduros are held on. Big long climbs equal big long descents. But that being said you should be able to make the transfer without having to race it.

Opinion - Cater To Your Weaknesses
I wouldn't say that the trails that the BCBR is run on are overly technical. But they are an absolute blast to ride. For me the most brutal thing about the race is the Steep as hell fire road climbs. But even with those brutal climbs and as weak of a climber as I am. I defiantly wouldn't choose a hardtail for the race. I am well aware of my weaknesses and riding a hardtail at race speed is defiantly one of them. I see no reason what so ever to suffer all day. The BCBR is all about the Single track. Really good single track. Take your trail bike and laugh at the roadies

Economic Impacts of Mountain Biking Tourism
The Go Pro Games in Vail brought in over 5million in revenue to Vail in less than a week! Granted its more than biking but that kind of income doesn't go unnoticed. Down here in Eagle we hosted the Colorado State mountain bike championships last fall and the net revenue for the weekend was over 500 thousand for the weekend. The locals that complained about the town spending 50 grand on the trails needed for the races. Quickly changed their tune. We got together and built a BMX track as well, and it's always packed every Thursday for races. Both my son and daughter race BMX and the skills they've learned are paying huge dividends on the trails. Love riding bikes with my kids. Build great single track and we will come. We've already done 4 bike trips this year and have a few more scheduled.
