Continental Baron and Der Kaiser Tires - Sea Otter 2014
The quality of the rubber on conti tires will blow you away. Best in the business for sure. The grip - especially in the wet - is unreal, yet they last longer than anything else. To be honest it does seem to make a big difference where you ride. If you ride a lot of wet rock and roots you'll love the conti der baron. But if you ride in soft ground without a lot of hard slick surfaces the Muddy Mary seems better. If you ride a lot of park, a DHF or the der kaiser projekt above will be good. Even different local mountains around here, one brand works better than the other and vice versa. Another big factor in popularity is whatever the local shop promotes the most, and conti can be hard for them to order and therefore they often won't push them.

Continental Baron and Der Kaiser Tires - Sea Otter 2014
Any difference between this kaiser and the der kaiser projekt 2.4 that was released last year? I have a pair and they look identical.

They may look similar but conti tires are infinity times better than nevegals.

Press Release: Giant Says 27.5 Glory is on the Way to Production
I think the designers are in a bit of a conundrum. The longer rear end seems to be more suitable to world cup racing, while a short back end seems to suit mere mortals and park riding. I would really like to see more companies using adjustable rear dropouts for this like what Intense and Transition do. I have a V10c and I would love to have the flexibility to adjust the chainstay length and/or bb height to suit my preferences.

Pivot Carbon Phoenix - 33.8 Pound DH Race Bike - Sea Otter 2014
This must the nicest DH bike out there now. It's like a mix between my Pivot Mach 5.7 and Santa Cruz V10c.

Biking in Northern Canada: B.C.'s Northern Rockies & the Alaska Highway
When I was little my family took that ferry trip and there's a stretch of open ocean. There was a huge storm with 30 foot seas. It's an overnight trip and our family had our own cabin, and we all puked our guts out because we were so sea sick. It was brutal!

Inside Marzocchi USA: Bringing Service Back
I adamantly agree on the spring exchange idea. I love that the new 380 has remained coil while the competition are all air now, but you don't have to buy replacement springs with an air fork so your competition has that advantage now. Free ti spring exchange at time of purchase, or low cost exchange after using would be a huge purchase incentive.
