SilverStar Ranked Second Best Bike Park in Western Canada
Rode there about 10years ago? on my hard tail ... was smooth, fast and fun. At that point the rumor was they were having a hard time justifying opening again the next season. Back then it reminded me of when whistler had no braking bumps. Got to make time to get back there.

Defining Home with Jill Kintner - Video
Life is too short to have to drive to ride. It's even better when there is a cold beer store that you pass riding home. Good on you Jill and Bryn.

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie - Review
I put a 24" 3.0 on the back of my first Chromag stylus and ran a 26" 2.5 on a marz 66 on the front, 10 years ago. This bike was able to smooth out the trail way better than my rootdown 29" 2.4. Hint to specialized; a smaller tire width on the front will improve steering. Motocross has done this from the start because it works.

Snow Show - Les Gets Bike Park to Reopen This Saturday
I rode the Coast Gravity Park on Sunday. Its open all year long. Canadian dollar is way down vs the USd or the euro so Canada is the place to go. We were the only ones booked in and had the place to ourselves with a few locals. There is record snow 1000 feet above the park but the not a flake to be seen on the trails. Couldn't find any braking bumps either.

1 Question - What Product, Event or Trend has had the Greatest Effect Upon the Sport this Millennium?
Josh Bender and BMX. Both of these events were instrumental in showing us how big and hard you could ride. It's been a really long time since there was anything in Mountain biking which was not a tiny incremental improvement or bar raiser. I have always felt ripped off by the "mountain bike companies". I think right now though, the price and quality of the lower end bikes from the larger bike companies is matching or surpassing the skills of the average rider. The "trickle down" of technology and manufacturing is finally happening and it's cost effective. This, by the way, happened in sports like motocross in 1987 when Honda put a 19" wheel on the back of their CR instead of an 18"er. I think they had already introduced the rising rate linkage to the standard single pivot swing arm by then too( which is just making it out to probably half the mtb bikes out there today). Maybe its just letting us ride ski hills in the summer and building trails with excavators...

Video: Who Says Hard Tails Don't Shred?
Just before my son was born 10 years ago, I built up my trusty stylus. For a very long time it was my only bike. We used to joke that it was the Nomad hard tail. You can ride them anywhere on anything. Lately I'm on a ss Rootdown and its pretty much the same idea. You will be so happy with this frame and you will have it for a very long time. Smart buy
