I raced bmx as a kid but didn't so much as touch a bike for over ten years. I found myself looking for a new outlet when it wasn't snowboard season, then I found mountain biking... there's no looking back now Wink

100% Aircraft Helmet - Review
@Adamknowles: You can ride with a half shell at bike parks on this side of the pond if you want to... that's how I broke my nose... one of the three times at least...

Rocky Mountain Maiden World Cup - Review
@makripper: I'm pretty sure you couldn't buy a $10,000+ bicycle over a decade ago... and if you could they were too expensive then and now!!! I do buy used for exactly that reason, and that I like to build and tinker with my bikes a lot... but I shouldn't have to buy used!

Rocky Mountain Maiden World Cup - Review
@makripper: The point I was trying to make is that the general trend of pricing needs to change. The fact that these price points are standard is whats the matter... Any company outside of niche brands has the resources to put out product that isn't so astronomically priced, its due to numerous reasons (not least of which is people's acceptance of these price trends) that they don't. They fact that you can even spend over $10,00 on any vehicle is ridiculous.

Rocky Mountain Maiden World Cup - Review
@makripper: Actually they listed it in USD and they said it costs $4,499 USD. That is still far too expensive for a companie's cheapest downhill bike. Perceptions like yours that $4500 for a new bike is acceptable is the problem. I work in manufacturing and there is no reason affordable and capable aluminum versions can't be offered. Carbon isn't as great as some make it out too be... If you ask me from what I've seen and from my own number crunching I feel the average price of a full susser should be closer to $3,000 not $5,000... this CAN be achieved with aluminum!

@makripper: These prices are why aluminum frame options still need to be offered... Carbon is over rated and over priced...

Pinkbike Poll: What's Your Mountain Biking Vice?
@mnorris122: I think your more inline with the intent of why riding in wet conditions is a vice than anyone. Riding in the wet can destroy trails in some places... I'm just lucky enough to live somewhere that the trails hold up fairly well plus we have a huge cycling community that does lots of trail work!

Ergon Downhill Range Launch, Les Gets 2016
Yea I thought that was a reach too... although for me brake lever angle and better grip strength is what finally helped.

Keeping It Fresh - Opinion
@YoKev: Dude you have totally missed the point of this article and my comment... This is all about still pushing ourselves even though we are getting older. I'm not talking about being a fat ass and having sore muscles(thanks for assuming DICK), both my knees are f#@&ed as is one of my shoulders... so yea I wake up sore and in pain often but I continue to push myself in my riding and all facets off my life. You sound like a pissed off bitter old man... I sure as hell hope not to end up like your ass when I'm older...
