I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike. I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride it where I like.

RST Suspension: Three Long-Travel Forks - Sea Otter 2014
If Sr Suntour can make a turn-around and start producing some stuff, then I don't see a reason why these guys can't turn their act around and start making some solid stuff. Although, it might not turn out well! Only time will tell!

FOX Unveils a New 36 RC2
Considering they're Italian...I'd imagine it's more likely the head of FOX's engineering department will wake up with a fox's head in his bed!

Video: How to Score Speed in L.A. on a Mountain Bike
Just a few more weeks of school before I get back home to LA and get my shred on in the San Gabriels! So stoked! BC riding is damn nice, but I miss my big climbs and So-cal sunshine!

Press Release: Cannondale OverMountain Team Moves to SuperMax For the EWS Series
That's the problem with them right there: the mind. It looks weird, it looks fragile, it looks totally not right at all. BUT...the first time you ride one of the damn things it completely changes everything you think about 'em. Sure the internals of my 7-year-old, lowest-rung Lefty Max may be quite up to par with the abilities of my '11 Marzo 55 RC3 Ti, but the chassis of the damn thing is just completely out of this world. Gonna be putting in a modern solo-air cartridge in it this summer!

Opinion: What's Your Monster?
For the longest time, my "monster" was a 7-foot tall "mesa" in a flat spot on a local fire road. Essentially a near-vertical drop for the first 1-2 feet then a steep, soft roll-out after that. My third time out mountain biking I tagged along with a group of guys and they tried to get me to roll off it. I spent 10 minutes hesitating, then finally tried and fell sideways due to trying to stop myself from going over. Got a pretty big scrape down the side of my leg. Probably hurt myself worse than if I'd actually fallen. From then on, and for 2 years after that, whenever I went to that trail, which was almost every week, I'd stop, stare at the drop, walk up to it, walk around...and then bike away. Finally, I went to take it on. I climbed up to the top, stood there, stared, deep breaths...and then went for it. Looking back it's...really not a hard thing to beat, but DAMN did it feel good to kick its ass!

Pinkbike Poll: Are You a Fair Weather Rider?
It's not so much that I don't like mud or rain, it's more that around my home(so-cal), trails turn into hell when they get wet. Mud is one thing, but clay is...well clay is simply EVIL. Sticks to everything, dries as hard as cement, and it can knock you out if it hits you in the face. However, the more important factor is down to the health of the trails. Riding in wet and muddy conditions, especially in places that get a lot of traffic, such as most trails in so-cal around the greater LA area where. If you have a place that has softer dirt, less traffic, and more (or any) of a builder scene, it's not as big of a deal as long as you are prepared to put in effort to fix it. As such, I almost never ride when trails are wet; also it doesn't rain much. Having spent time in BC, I've been riding in mud, rain, and snow a fair bit, and it is VERY fun! But I ride with a group of people that make efforts to work on trails and keep the maintained, and I do not ride when the trails are soup to avoid excessive damage.

California Dreaming: DVO Test Sessions
The little blurb about an air shock in the works has really got my interest piqued! With the fox DHX air out of production, Rockshox seems to have a pretty iron grip on the DH air shock market so I'm eager to see what you guys will bring to the table! Cooling fins on the air can? Carbon fiber piggyback? Green anodized everything? Can't wait to see what you guys have in store! Really need to go over and say Hi next time I see you guys at Tapia instead of just going "oh hey, the DVO guys are out testing, wonder what's hidden inside the "suntour" forks they've got..." and nervously talking about it with my ride buddies!

This bike is exactly the kind of thing I want to build up this summer! It's beautiful, it's stand-out, and goddamn is it cool. Hell, I'd love to buy this one from you if it weren't for geographic distance!
