Video: Lars Sternberg - Loam Ranger
The crazy part is that he's getting that loose with clipless pedals. I admire his confidence to ride on the verge of traction clipped in and being able to clip back in quickly after a turn/slide. I only ride clipless during racing or good weather for that reason, and flats for the bad weather and when I'm just "riding for fun".

Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC Edition - Review
You can't believe how many 160mm bikes and carbon Bronsons are spoon fed to new, unsuspecting riders at my shop simply because "it's a Bronson." Then they go ride cross country trails with these energy sucking behemoths when a 5" travel bike would have made it easier to ride and have more fun.

Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt BC Edition - Review
For the new generation of overly manicured bike trails(I'm not a fan, but I can't stop it) that resemble an elongated pumptrack going down a mountain, I absolutely enjoy the lower travel bikes with slacker/lower geometry and bigger stanchions. I'd love terrain that is rockier, steeper, and filled with roots, but when that is not available, these low travel bikes are faster, snappier, and make longer travel bikes feel sluggish. I see so many 150-160mm travel bikes under newer riders and it's just way too much for this particular type of terrain.

Trade my 27.5 Pike lowers for your 26" lowers

$50 USD
Hello, I have a white 2014 RockShox Pike for the 27.5" wheel size in very good condition(I'll post photos tonight). If you happen to have a 26" Pike, and want to move up to 27.5" without buying a new fork, I'd like to swap lowers. I already contacted SRAM and they verified that this is something that can be done. The lowers are compatible, whether it's solo air or dual position air. On a side note, I have 2 air spring systems available for the 27.5: 160/130mm and 140/110mm. The 160/130 is completely new and either is available if you want to swap dual position air travel options or for sale. Feel free to text or call. -ron

Movies For Your Monday
Yeah, so somebody has to be the first to do rampage or a bigger, steeper mountain with a parachute.. but who? That would end horribly and contests would have even more wind delays/cancellations, heh heh.

Juice Lubes' Fork, Hand and Viking Juice - Review
I'm glad you brought that up because I remembered a suspension tuner(I forgot who) discouraging the use of silicone lubes for suspension. I just wasn't sure who or why.

Juice Lubes' Fork, Hand and Viking Juice - Review
If I remember correctly, some manufacturers' take on the best sliding surfaces is that it should not be as microscopically flat as possible. Allowing SOME microscopic porosity(or whatever the correct word) will hold lubricant or the coating more effectively. There's a difference between the grease you put inside your seals and suspension specific lube that you put on the external part of the fork. It shouldn't be slathered on grease, but something that bonds to the surface of the stanchion.

MTB Enduro World Champion Jerome Clementz Will Ride with Cannondale for Three More Years
All we need now is a SRAM energy drink. Imagine the red can with the white logo. The low-cal version will be reversed with a white can and red text. Team riders can now hold a can of SRAM up for those all-important podium photos. There may even be a "charger" version of the drink.
