Final Fireworks Show - Eurobike 2015
Just head to the shed, grab a hacksaw and a file, and chop it. That's what I did. You don't get the rubber inside, but mine doesnt rub anyhow. Looks much cleaner and easier to remove than previous design.

Red Bull Rampage 2015 - Tickets on Sale
It's rideable ; ) It's rough and loose at the top, a little eroded, but opens up about midway down, and has a few jumps berms built in too. Crazy fast at the bottom. The pedal from Goodeberry mesa to the road was about a 30min pedal on a relatively flat trail. Tough part is, where do you get your wristband, put your bike or get out?

Video: Klunkin Whistler
Have you never watched a single Earthed video? When up close putting the bike or wheels in frame as opposed to the rider gives a better feel for the speed. When rider is in frame, you get a sense of rider focus and movement, but not how the bike is carrying speed or moving across the terrain.

Red Bull Rampage 2015 - Tickets on Sale
There is a way. And someone here has already hinted on how to get to it. I will warn you its not easy, and logistics of getting down takes planning. I poached practice last year after the rain postponed everything by a day.

Yoann Barelli's Giant Reign - Crankworx Whistler 2015
You obviously have not met Yoann. I'm sure Giant is well aware of his attitude, as this is him on a normal basis.

Enduro World Series Stages for Crankworx Whister
Am I reading that correctly? 14,000 ft of climbing in one day? In only 34 miles!

Orbea Loki 2016: First Look
Ctd07, There are two types of rolling resistance; contact patch that affects acceleration and deflection that affects momentum. Contact patch has to do with the amount of rubber in contact with the ground when the object is weighted and in contact with the ground. Deflection has to do with the amount your tire absorbs the terrain as as it is coming at you. The more you increase your tire pressure the less contact patch you have. This is why when you inflate your tires to high pressures the amount of effort it takes to get the wheel rolling is lower because you have less rubber resisting against you. However, with higher pressures when you hit an object, your tire is more likely to deflect of off the object rather than rolling through the object. This is added resistance as well because it slows you down and takes more effort to keep your momentum up and your tires rolling. The most correlative would be road cycling. In track, they run 21-22c tires and of 140psi and sometimes 150 or 160psi. They can do this because the surface of the track is extremely smooth, and less rubber contact WILL be faster. Now, for an outdoor race, they tend to run 23-25c tires, with the latter now being more popular, and pressures in the 90-120psi range, depending on conditions. A rider in the Paris-Roubaix will likely run on the lower side of the pressures to smooth out to rough and to prevent him from running off course. This can all be applied to mountain bikes as well. You tend to find XC folk running smaller tires to decrease contact patch, but usually run pressures in the high-teens to low twenties. This is not only to increase traction, but to smooth out the trail making their effort go further. Also why a large amount of riders now ride tubeless. To increase traction, lessen pinch flats, but most of all create a smoother ride. No longer to you have the added stiffness of a tube AND a tire. Now there is just a tire that falls between the stiffness and thickness of a tire/tube combo. With tubes, I used to have to run my pressure in the mid-thirties to prevent a flat. Now running tubeless I can run in the range of 25-30psi. The few instances I have had to run a tube because of a sliced tire on a tubeless set-up, I immediately noticed to increased effort to keep the tire rolling and tracking straight. This resulted in more fatigue and soreness in my lower back from the increase in strength to keep the bike in line, and from the added jolt through the tires. http://triathlete-europe.competitor.com/2011/05/03/facts-figures-myths-optimum-tyre-pressure

RockShox Reverb 125mm 380mm 30.9 Right Top / Left Bottom

$180 USD
For sale is a RockShox Reverb, 380mm length, 125mm drop, 30.9, externally routed. Hose measures to be 124.5cm / 49in in length. Lever is for the right side of the bar, but I ran it under the bar on the left in place of a shifter (if running a 1x). I purchased the post second hand from a shop after being returned because the original owner didn't know how to bleed it for regular maintenance. After a quick bleed it was working like new. I have had the post for approximately the last 8 months and have bled it once since the first bleed. It is in excellent condition. No scratches on the stantion, hose in great shape, and only an "X" marked into the body of the post from the shop I purchased it from. PayPal if shipped or Cash-in-hand w/ Direct Pick-up only. Buyer pays shipping. Will ship to USA and Canada only. Asking $180. REASONABLE offers only, so please send me YOUR offer.
