Bikethrasher

I'm a Trail rider through and through. I'm never satisfied, Thus I am constantly searching for the perfect trail bike. This being the case. I spend lots of time and money demoing bikes. I generally don't comment on bikes unless I've ridden them. I sacrifice pretty much everything for the sake of owning really nice bikes.

Montana Treasures: Missoula with Ben Horan - Video
Only problem is. If this was really Golden they would have had to stop ever couple hundred feet to let hikers and other riders go by. Oh snap no one got assulted by angry trail runners and where where the angry old hikers sabotaging the trail. I didn’t hear a single gun shot either. a ride on the Front range and no gun shots. Highly unlikely indeed. They didn’t get yelled at for going the wrong way on the wrong day of the week. No other riders ran them off the trail and bitched at them about keeping single track single. No trail rage at all. That never happens here. I almost forgot. There wasn’t a single sign of super stoned tourists stumbling around completely oblivious as to what is going on or where they are. The weed here is the dirt variety from Mexicali. There’s way too many people and the air smells like burning chemicals all the time the water smells like poo, but nobody seems to mind. Over 500 traffic deaths so far this year has earned Denver in the top ten most dangerous places to drive in the country. Want to walk or ride you bike to work. Great we will add your name to that list soon. If the Stravahole didn’t kill you on the trail he will on the way to the trailhead. There are thousands of minimum wage jobs here and rent prices are cheap around $3000 a month for a single family home. Want to buy. You can get a nice shack right off Colfax for around $400k. Colorado sucks move along now.

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
So your trying to tell me ebikes are going to stop evolving? Seriously dude get a clue. High output ebikes are already a reality. I rode that bike. It is wicked fast. Dirt bike fast. Yes is was a blast to ride but the fact of the matter is it’s not a Mtn bike. Motor plus bike equals Motor Bike. Stop trying to blur reality. You ebike, dirt biker, Moped, or what ever, guys need your own website. You should start it you could make a lot of money.

Riding Rigid is Ridiculous - Opinion
Theres a ebike company in our town that has a 1000 watt ebike that will smoke the tires with a push of the throttle. No pedaling required. Electric dirt bike is a more accurate description of what e-bikes are rapidly becoming.

Leaving Las Vegas: One Last Stroll Through the Halls of Interbike, 2017
My Chris King threaded BB is now 10 years old. It's been on 4 different bikes now. It's never squeaked or creaked, and spins as smooth as ever. Some things just shouldn't be messed with.

12-Speed XTR, Devinci’s Return to DH, and a Santa Cruz eMTB? - Rumors from Eurobike 2017
I'm from Colorado and I can get by easily on 10 speeds when I ride regularly. With XX1 even in bad shape I can usually clean any climb I'm actually skilled enough to get up. 12 would be nice for those really long days but certainly not necessary for anyone who rides regularly. Then again the climb up Belcher will bring even the strongest to their knees on a 95 plus degree day. Ride what makes you happy. Give me less gears with a wider spread. In reality we only need one. It's all DH from here anyway!

The Pros Weigh in on Carbon vs Aluminum Wheels - EWS Aspen 2017
@gibbon-on-an-orange: Exactly the Pros run what they are given. Wheather it's the best option or not. Because it's their job to sell product. Granted that's not always the case but more often than not it is.

Pimp My Bike – A Money Can't Buy Prize With Push Industries
My wife actually said. "If you win, are you going to buy a new frame to put it on?" Picture not so happy wife. Cause you keep saying your current bike is all used up. Picture not understanding or believing wife. All I could say was. Well you know. She stomped off.

Brilliant or Bullshit? – Pinkbike Poll
Insanely expensive carbon wheels, carbon frames, boost, plus, bigger wheels, pf bbs, boost. God knows I've tried it all. None of that shit made me any faster. Powerful Disc brakes, Dropper posts, Quality suspension, Better Geometry, Tubless tires, good 2.3 tires, 1X drivetrains. Have all helped though. Powerful disc brakes and dropper posts made the most dramatic improvement though. Taking minutes off lap times. Major improvement in handling and control. That lead to more confidence and more speed.
