Muc-Off Foam Fresh - Review
Yes, +2 on white vinegar. It will get the funk smell out of your laundry. You can also spray it or a combo of baking soda and water on your gear in lieu of this muc-off stuff.

This vid was done very well. I have the original BMX Bandits dvd if anyone's interested. $10 plus shipping. Be warned, the riding in the original is what's to be expected from that era, lol.

Roedty, please stop sending me pm's. You've sent me a second one, and I'm deleting that one, also without reading it. All you're doing is confirming that my original post hit where it hurt. Everyone's entitled to their opinion on here. Just don't make it personal by sending me threats or diatribe or whatever it is you can't say publicly. Any further communication from you and I will follow vernonjeff's advice to make it public. I don't know when I first started hearing "Tony" stories, but it was probably before YOU started riding. I've been following mountain biking from the late 80's. Keep in mind, your actions and replies aren't helping Ellsworth's cause.

And Tony Ellsworth, I mean, Roedty, don't send me private messages; that's just scary.

Roedty, it's great that you've been exposed to Ellsworth's good side. Just realize that the more "good" one does the worse it is when it's at the expense of others. It's like: "My pastor/coach/community leader does so much good! It's just that he beats his wife and children at home and underpays his employees and lies on his tax returns and lets his dog poop on other people's lawns." See? Except in Tony's case, the money he pours back into the community comes at the expense of disgruntled customers. All the "good" someone does doesn't excuse the bad; it doesn't make up for broken words and lack of integrity. It just points to someone, who's two-faced and disintegrated. You steamroll over people, and Karma will give you what you deserve.

NS Snabb E1 - Review
I completely agree. I do ghetto setups, and the added thickness of the 20" tube makes for a tighter interface between the tire bead and my Mavic UST x3.1 (supposedly same as 819) rims. Without that tube UST or tubeless ready tires will mount and hold air but have a propensity for popping off. Even though I use a new tube every time I change out a tire it's the easiest, most guaranteed way for me to have a reliable tubeless system. If I had wider rims I might be able to get by without the tube, but in my experience ghetto is the only way that works for me.

Inside Maxima Racing Oils - Factory Visit
"Like many categories in the bike industry, the lubricant category is so crowded that some distributors are currently dropping lubricant lines that maybe aren’t selling." Uhhhhh, you mean like all these bike parts manufacturers that have their own labeled chemicals that sell for two to three times as much as automotive or motorcycle products? Yeah, I've never fallen for that ridiculous trap. Love Maxima suspension fluids. Very highly rated, plus the prices are among the cheapest.

Stanton Switchback - Review
Had a On One 456 Summer Season, and the Achilles Heel was the long, 425mm chainstays. The static headangle with my 160mm fork was about 64 deg. and felt awesome, even for urban riding, but the long chainstays were a dud. I applaud Stanton for putting shorter, 415mm chainstays on this 650b bike.

Stanton Switchback - Review
Davidsimons, had a 456 Summer Season, 18", and the frame weight was around 5.5 lbs. Yes, you do suffer the weight penalty when going with a steel hardtail, but if you are going to get a hardtail then steel or ti are really the only way to go. The lively feel is real.
