It just isn't the same without Stevie. Stoked for Bas though. #longlivechainsaw

Trailforks Crankworx Whistler Contest
@HpSauce: I totally get that. I'm more continuing this conversation out of personal interest than anything so feel free to ignore. The thing about being an orangutan is that your elbows stick out while riding a bike. when they do that, the weight comes off the thumb and onto the outside of the hand. I have never felt my thumbs get stressed riding but I do have callouses on the pad beneath my pinky finger. I also run my brakes extremely far inboard so I'm not even sure my hands sit straight. The other thing is that running steep levers seems to help get me in attack position, although that's pure conjecture. Anyway, different strokes for different folks. It likely has a lot to do with build, riding style and bike fit. There seem to be people much faster than me doing it both ways.

@HpSauce: Unless you're lanky in the upper body and like to stay over the front. Like me. I'm confounded by this flat brakes trend lately - set em to match the head angle or a little steeper and call it day as far as I'm concerned.

This is Home: Richie Rude - Video
@WAKIdesigns: Sure, but nobody intelligent is advocating HIIT over volume based training for endurance athletes. The science is very much against it. Massive aerobic fitness is built on a massive low-intensity base. Now for those people who can't commit enough time to even get close to making the volume they would need to see gains, HIIT is better than nothing. People have differing priorities and there is nothing wrong with that, but make no mistake, trying to make endurance gains using HIIT is salvage work.

Frisby Ridge Closure and Upgrades - Summer 2016
Good to see. That trail got hammered so hard last fall, and everyone who rode it in those conditions should frankly be ashamed. It's not hard to see what kind of condition it's in. It's an out and back. Hopefully, some of the initial flaws in construction can be solved and the trail will drain a little better too. With as much traffic as Frisby gets, sadly, idiot proofing is vital.

Cane Creek's New C-Quent Shock Explained
My first Inline died pretty fast. Cavitated and started making some gnarly sounds, but was still rideable. Cane Creek sent me a new one, no questions asked. They including the shipping label for the old one in the box with the new one so that I literally did not have to miss a single ride. That new shock is by far the best air shock I've ever used. I guess it's one of the good ones. Between the performance of the product and the absolute top notch customer service, they have 100% earned my business.

WiggleCRC Gets the Green Light
@PJD1: I didn't mean that all shops should die off. Just the ones that don't understand their value is in service rather than parts. I count having stock on hand as a service, albeit a basic one. @k-too: Yeah, shops do that... It kind of is what it is. Why should CRC pay the same wholesale cost as Joe's LBS when they order 1000 times more product and assume the overhead and risk involved with holding and distributing it?

@unrooted: Those shops deserve to die off then. Simple as that.
