WTB Vigilante Team Issue 27.5 Tire - Review
I have the AM/TCS version of these for my 29er. They're the biggest tires I've ever owned. The volume is so high that I couldn't fit one in the back of my Enduro and the front one is so tall that it changed my geometry. It's that huge. It's turned my bike into a 29+, which I'm actually not crazy about. If I was running a hardtail the extra volume might be nice but on a 6" 29er it feels unnecessary. Tread and grip has been pretty good but not good enough to overcome the squirminess of that giant carcass.

The Steps to Adventure
Don't let this mislead you. The bike park is the only place to want to be. Right where I can see you.

Video: A Girl and Her Bike are a Wonderful Thing - Part 3
I never understood that argument. If a person needs more strength and power then go and train for it. This is a sport that's as much about finesse as it is power and direct aggression; letting go of the brakes and charging corners isn't something you need a lot of meat to do. I don't see why a woman shouldn't do equally well? Troy Brosnan is 5'6" 132lbs.

Transition Scout 1 - Review
"The industry needs some new designs similar to the Norco Truax, 180 mm with great climbing capabilities." - Really? You should look around a little. We are surrounded by amazing bikes in the 160-170mm range that are amazing climbers that absolutely kill anything from the Truax's generation/category going downhill. Just because it has 10mm more travel doesn't mean it's a better descender. Modern geometry and big wheels.

A West Texas Winter
I would think that most trails are rough when you're on a rigid singlespeed.

Peak Leaders: Top 5 Whistler Trails
These are some of my favourites. But really I would prefer if you keep people corraled in the bike park where I can see them :)

Ibis Mojo HD3 - Review
Though the XL in this bike is big for them, Ibis typically isn't building bikes for tall people. Don't lose any sleep over it. Go buy a Specialized Enduro, tall guy approved.

Trailforks Trail of the Month: Zen
Peoples' definition of technical varies greatly. I've ridden in St George. It's beautiful and super fun. The trails are awesome and well-maintained. But technical they are not (by B.C. standards).

Does that fork still have its price tag sticker on?
