I love building, shooting/filming, and almost anything on two wheels, but shuttling/lifts are the best!

Deity: New Digs in Idaho
By far my favorite bike brand in this crazy industry. Since buying my first pair of Deity bars 5 years ago nothing else has felt quite right. Thank you for continually progressing our sport, bleeding style, and staying true to your rock solid values. Can't wait for the giddiness of throwing some new Deity on my next build.

Disclaimer said it was a closed course. If Subaru handed me a brand new car on a road all to myself with instructions to floor it I would happily oblige.

This bike has just been sitting for almost four months. The low price reflects my desire for it to find a new home. I bought this bike new in February 2013 and barely rode it my freshman year of college (last year) so it has less than two years worth of riding on it. The Slash is Trek's longest travel bike below a full on DH bike so it's an absolute blast on descents and will still get you uphill without complaining. I have raced everything from XC to Super D to Sea Otter DH on this bike and it makes a great burly all arounder. The bike is in great shape, brakes work super well (although I will still include brand new pads), and it has brand new front derailleur cable and housing. The only issues are that there a few cosmetic imperfections in the frame (mostly from shuttling) and the bottom bracket makes some noise. I have kept the bike mostly stock except for the following upgrades: Spank Spike pedals e*thirteen TRS+ Dual (chain) Guide Continental Trail King 2.4 tires SRAM X9 Type 2 long cage rear derailleur Brand new Specialized 70mm stem AND used Easton E70 85mm stem WTB Dual Duty rear wheel Here's what Trek has to say: http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/2012/archive/trek/slash_7/#/us/en/archive-model/details?url=us/en/bikes/2012/archive/trek/slash_7

Video: Slowmo Bro Learns How to Share the Trail
This is super interesting. I grew up in Marin and raced in the NorCal league of NICA for 3 years. Of course everyone on the trails is there to have fun and courtesy is king, but the concept of bikes and horses legally sharing singletrack in the Bay Area is very sparse. I've experienced everyone from horse riders enthusiastically following me down trails to hikers who won't let me pass and threaten to call the cops on me for trying to ride legal trails. I'm really not surprised NICA would portray getting your tires off the ground as a douche move, they make all races sign a contract saying they will NEVER do this. I for one find getting creative while riding downhill with my friends far more fun than spinning up a hill and being overly polite to a bunch of strangers. NICA does many of great things, but I often worry that their mission is too firmly rooted in amassing new riders at the expense of the quality of experience of the many riders that do participate. Finally, congratulations to Kate for continuing to slay races after high school for Stanford.

Video: Berm Warfare With Tyler McCaul
@scott-townes, You obviously have no idea how trail building works in Northern California. Trails like that are built by riders, for a very few selected riders, and kept top secret. If anyone under CA taxpayer funding laid a hand on those beautiful berms it would be to tear them down, not maintain them.

Paul Bas - This Is Not An Injury Update
Hopeing you heal up soon and if not I know you're the badass who'll fight every day to get where you want to be. I'm sending a bunch of healing vibes and can't wait to see what you do next. Glad to hear so many people are using this as just that extra little motivation to get on the bike, because that's what it's all about.
