Riding Bluto - Sea Otter 2014
"Fun as hell" makes sense. Hell is probably awesome. Much cooler than hanging out with God. That dude thinks he knows everything. So annoying.

Video Recap: Fontana City National 2014
Dreadlocks and full face helmets just seems like such an unnecessary self imposed hell. Must be a true Rasta Mon.

First Look: 650B GT Fury Downhill Bike
Canfield is also releasing a 650B 6 inch travel balance this summer. They have the industry figured out so well. 650B for all mountain, but keep the Jedi at 26". Another bonus is that you can run the Balance with 26 wheels and a 170mm fork, effectively slackening the head angle without raising the bottom bracket. Genius. No forced 650B, just an option. The big players like Trek and Specialized should just watch what the Canfields are doing and take notes. Also, I noticed Specialized 650B tires for sale at the bike shop the other day, so I would guess a 650B wheel Specialized is not to far off.

First Look: 650B GT Fury Downhill Bike
I bet you the 26" and 650B version feel identical to ride. Don't stress, you made a good purchase. Your wheels will always be stronger and lighter than 650B due to basic physics.

First Look: Trek's Prototype 650B Session DH Bike - NZ Nationals
650B is a friend not an enemy. 650B will kill 29er for us. 650B seems like a good compromise to me, and I could see myself abandoning 26" wheels if I were buying a new complete build.

Pinkbike Athlete Awards - The Nominees
Pilgrim won't ride at rampage because he is scared. You cannot be the #1 Freerider without riding at rampage. You just can't. If the category was slope style only, he would be a good candidate.

Devinci Dixon RX - Reviewed
Gave you positive. Your back at 0! I don't know anything about Votec, but that bike you linked looks really nice. I have a Dixon and like everything about it except for the high bottom bracket. It is nice on the climbs because I never strike pedals, but I will never enjoy climbing without a motor anyway. You can feel the high BB on the descents in the corners for sure. Not that it's that bad, but I would rather have a Mojo HD, or a Transition Covert. The Dixon does jump awesome, and I ride it as hard downhill as my TR250 without any issues. For a 145mm trailbike it is definitely burly. Mines a 2012, but I don't think they've changed the geometry. I do know that they have made changes to the chainstays and seatstays in order to accomodate running a larger rear tire which was definitely needed. There is very little tire clearance with an ardent 2.4 on the rear of my bike.

Devinci Dixon RX - Reviewed
"And while the rear of the bike might not have been the most forgiving, the entire package did feel incredibly solid when things got rough - this isn't a machine that feels as if it will rattle apart under a heavy or fast rider." Not everyone is looking for the rear suspension to be "forgiving". For some, firm and solid are more important attributes. Quoting a single line from an article is very misleading.

Devinci Dixon RX - Reviewed
Devinci makes the Troy which is basically a Dixon with 650B. I think it's a smart move. Why would they commit to 1 wheel size when there are 3 different sizes that are suitable for different personal preferences. Good to see a company that is keeping a level head through all the hype about bigger wheels these days.
