Pinkbike Poll - Have You Had a Near Death Experience on Your Bike?
Man, I must not be as hardcore as I thought I was, because a near death experience is pretty crazy. Had some bad crashes that made me chill out for a while and finally buy some body protection, but near death is some serious shit. But I make sure to crash hard every couple of years just so I feel like I'm getting my money's worth from my health insurance...

Kyle Strait Here, Rampage Champ - Ask Me Anything!
Do you ever ride with the Athertons, like at the quarry that Dan built? Or do GT riders not necessarily see much of each other?

Megavalanche - Qualifying Photo Epic
I noticed that, too. Seems like Dan did better last year, when he was on the old Force, as well. Maybe the prototype still has some kinks to work out.

GT Fury Review
@wakaba: That just seems like more of the same knee-jerk marxist anti-corporate nonsense. The more cheap, crappy bikes Dorel sells the more money it has for R&D for better models. You can almost always get a better product at a cheaper price from a big, scary corporation than a small-scale boutique manufacturer. It's just economies of scale. Plus, GT has the Athertons, Beaumont, Kyle Strait, Taylor McCaul, etc. And Mongoose has Chris Akrigg. You think all these guys are willing to ride crappy bikes? No, they ride the best of a big brand and these big brands have the money to make whatever kind of bike these guys want.

GT Fury Review
It's weird how much most comments here seem to be trying to find a way to doubt that this GT is good. The review says it is "at the top of our short list of pre-eminent downhill bikes". That means: it is in the conversation for the best downhill bike pinkbike has ever tested. So it seems pretty obvious to me that there is an anti-GT prejudice on this site, and I was trying to figure out why. It seems like older people (I am 32) remember when GT ruled the racing world and so we're not surprised that GT is again making amazing bikes. But younger people on this site (probably the majority?) don't remember that and only saw GT at its lowest. Anyways, I've never ridden a Fury so can't defend it, but it seems pretty clear that GT doesn't get a fair shake in the comments section here.

GT 2014: Four models of the Fury - and Two Trailbikes: 650B Sensor and Force
I've got a 2010 force and I also beat the living crap out of it. But it is still running great so I can't justify a new one yet. I've even busted the boost-valve (pro-pedal) on the RP23 twice (though I think that is at least somewhat Fox's fault) but since it's an i-drive I'm just doing without it. But I think after a couples years of this model, after they've worked out the kinks, it may be in my plans. I just hope the force has a better paint job in 2016

First Look: New GT Fury Debuts at Fort William
In the video Rachel was saying she could ride a large on the OLD Fury. Sounds like that is one reason why they changed the geo on the new one. Maybe she'll ride a medium in the new Fury. Plus, Gee will have to ride a large. He's pretty tall isn't he? Like 6'2 or 6'3?
