After spending an awestruck hour looking over his shit, the only impressive thing about that dude is the volume and magnitude of douchebaggery. Douchebaggery notwithstanding, everything about him from intellect to designs to riding ability is subpar.

I like how in his nomad review he says threaded bottom brackets shouldn't be on modern bikes. He marked the threaded bb as a negative

also put a f*cking 100mm stem on it and then complained about the handling

He had a 120mm -15 on it to start to and then moved to the 100

Again, to be fair, some of these opinions being referenced are more than half a decade old and he's since switched to shorter stems. Some of his custom fabrications have approximately zero offset between the grip and the steering axis.

We've all held some dumb ideas about geometry and fit in the past. In the future, our current ideas may be seen as dumb.

And that’s how we found out that R-M-R was secretly P-D-V. Turn the R into a P, the D into an M, and R into a V. Coincidence? I think not.

:p

And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

Off topic but have you and I ever crossed paths? I mean there are only so many people in the Calgary cycling community?

Do we even have a topic at this point? I'll send you a direct message.

I almost said something when I posted because I knew that was coming...

I was going to sandbag the NAEC ebike class. Then I had a few buddies who where podium level pros decide to race the Ebike cat too.. So now I have to actually not be as fat.

But I did kinda want to hit the 220in2020 and then see where I could get down to from there.. 200 would probably be a pretty healthy weight for me BMX racing and the few odd Enduro and DH races.
