Revolution Suspension Grips - Review
@MarcMila: Yes, & insinuating that's equivalent to what it costs for regular lock ons. which is wildly innaccurate if you compare apples to apples, replacement grip to replacement grip, & even if you assume that a person is buying new clamps every time, it's still bullshit. lockon bonus packs are available all day for $20.

Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol - First Look
@PHeller: It is forest by forest, but it's also year by year, as FS personnel tend to move around a lot. It makes it a lot easier to have an event when you know the people you're working with will be consistent, instead of coming back the next year & finding they've completely changed their view on biking, especially with races that thrive on repeat racers. Bike parks also have the added advantage of soliciting for the event, rather than being asked for permission. Things run a lot smoother when the land managers are actively seeking the event, rather than granting permission for something they're not personally invested in. I haven't heard anything about Snow Bowl, but I've always been given the impression that the problem is the Native Americans objecting due to their considering the land it's on to be sacred. As for Epics Rides, I'll note that they're based in Tucson, but their only local race is on Arizona State Trust land, not FS, & again let people come to their own conclusions.

Blackspire Badger C Carbon Crankset - Review
@soulless: Wasn't meaning it as a criticism, just an interesting fact. As I said, I own a pair, & intend to keep them(just not on a bike I have to pedal to the top of a hill.) That said, you could probably drop pounds, plural off your bike without changing reliability one bit, the Aeffect cranks are probably just us durable, & weigh less than half what the Diabolus did, & can be found for as little as $100.

@dthomp325: As someone who's interfaced with the Forest Service on advocacy, I'll just point out that many/all of the BME stops are at resorts, not on public lands, & leave you to form your own opinion on why. Neither Flagstaff or Tucson has a resort that is open to bikes in the summer, sadly. & despite our efforts to change that, I don't see it changing anytime soon.

"Nino Schurter's eyes are firmly on Rio and the biggest prize in the sports world." Zika, flesh eating bacteria, & getting mugged?

@dthomp325: We'll be glad to have ya! Though don't come expecting a BME stop: it really is more of a fun ride, just with a clock on the downhills so we can give out prizes to the "average Joe" (or average Jolene?) which is the riders that are closest to the average of all times.

@PHeller: If you wanna demo a GG, I've got just the place: http://torca.org/2016/07/05/2016-pachanga/ Come hang out with us in Tucson & demo a GG! Loved the Mega Trail last year. It's in the top 3 bikes I've ever thrown a leg over.
