RE:aktiv Suspension - F1 and MTB Collide
Why do I find all the negative comments unsurprising lol. People pass judgment without trying it and thinking its been done before. Trek has come a long way in the past 6 or 7 years with their suspension and every change they have made has been pretty rock solid. Sure people complain about different standards but I find all the changes to be pretty awesome, especially when I go back and ride some of the old bikes. I can understand that people don't have the money to buy something new every year but at the same time that doesn't mean the new stuff won't be awesome. I for one am excited to try this new tech out. See what it feels like, I will judge it against my own standards and hope that it holds up. Sure there will be marketing hype but riding the bike will be the ultimate test. I am definitely really interested.

Darren Berrecloth at Rampage, Ask Me Anything!
Darren, just wanted to say I am a 31 year old Mountain Biker still ripping and I probably never would have done it without seeing how you killed it at Rampage 2. I am glad you are still ripping as well. I think you have the most dialed table 3's in the business and the sweetest Superman Seatgrab Indian Airs. Just wanted to say thanks for being an inspiration.

Final Results: Fort William World Cup 2013
Hard to directly compare last years results to this years. Track conditions change and racers change and bikes change but it does seem fishy that Sam Hill fell off the map with Specialized and now Aaron Gwin is falling in placing too and all of a sudden Brook MacDonald is coming 2nd at Fort Bill on a Session. Sure it is all speculation and circumstantial but it does make a pretty compelling argument.

Did Gwin Breach His Contract With Trek World Racing?
Seriously doubt this had anything to do with Lance and Trek, especially since Specialized riders have been stripped of tour titles. It was probably just a straight up better deal from Specialized.

Video: Darren Berrecloth On The Today Show
I think considering the audience that is probably watching "The Today Show" it was a pretty good spot. I mean it isn't like 18-30 year old males are sitting at home in the morning watching "The Today Show" for the latest extreme sport news.

Video: Will 650B Replace 26" Wheels?
Talking to Gary Fisher a couple weeks ago he said. They used 26" wheels because that was what worked the best when they were putting their bikes together. That was all they had at the time. They didn't have computers and labs at their disposal they were making junkers in their garages. That was why he decided to experiment with 29'ers in the first place. The bicycling world still has a way to go, I think people should be happy with experimentation.

Cannondale Joins Europe’s Big-Wheel Revolution – Eurobike 2011
I also thought that although Cannondale developed the Lefty I thought that all of their technology was openly shared and able to be used by any bike company that wished. Like BB30.

Trek World Racing adds Aaron Gwin to Downhill Line Up for 2011
Trek has some issues to work out on some of their Bontrager branded stuff. But from what I learned from speaking to the mountain brand manager at Trek they warrantied all the Session's that were dinged up even though he said they were all cosmetic and the structural integrity of the frames were sound. They just dinged up easy. Hence why they added the aluminum armor to them.
