Red Bull Rampage 2014: Looking Back - Rheeder
It's not about being chill it's about having respect for others.

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Looking Back - Rheeder
I will elaborate because I am annoyed and concerned over this - Rampage is about the spectacle, the mountain, everyone there. They all win in my book. I honestly don't care who ends up on podium. Do these guys know that? I had this image in my head like everybody is friends and just there to survive it and push the sport, as a collective of the best riders on earth. Sadly, it seems this is not the case. Hearing about guys being overly protective of "their" lines really pisses me off. Maybe since guys want to be babies we change the rules again. No dig team, no pre-builds. Just show up and ride. Because we don't want to hear about this crap. This is not mountain biking.

Yeah this leaves a baste taste from both sides of the argument. Just hearing that guys aren't getting along turns me off. Guess it happens all the way up through the big leagues. Grow the fuck up.

HT Components X1 Pedal - Review
This is an SPD style cleat. Less float than a Crank Bros, but with a similar sized platform. Looks like an old Shimano DX honestly.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
Yeah it's tough though to compare things just on paper. We do that all the time, how light is it? How much is it? Like we should then calculate that ratio to decide on purchase. There are other factors and different aspects that will appeal to different people, and in fact that is pointed out in the article. When choosing a suspension fork, feel, in my personal opinion is the most important. This will have the most effect on the enjoyment I get from the fork. I want to be fast and comfortable, and a fork that feels good to me, and behaves how I expect it to is paramount. Weight is important, but not as. I would add weight for feel. Example.The Boxxer fork that I run now is lighter than the 888 I rode before it- but I miss that fork because of its superior small bump sensitivity.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
To bring that into perspective Waki, I'm willing to bet 90% of the people on here who were chanting for DVO are actually not in the market (nor in the target market, i.e. - people who race or ride DH and have money to do so) for a high end fork.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
DVO don't let any comments under your skin, this is a brutal arena here. I am loving the aesthetic of this fork and although I don't need a fork right now you are on my radar.

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I miss videos with variety. Remember the Collective films, they had trail, jumps, north shore, even trials. Mix it up. I get tired of guys just blasting bike parks, very boring to watch.

DVO Emerald Inverted Fork- Review
It's a nice fork. Waki hits the nail on the head, it's a lower volume boutique fork. Personally I love the sight of it and I'd pay the premium to gaze upon it on the front of my bike over a Boxxer. For many reasons this will not suit everyone, but I don't think that's what DVO set out to do.
