$80 to bling out your rear derailleur pulley's? Or is there some added function to KA's part that I am missing. I'm all about the bling factor ... but $80 nearly buys you a gx eagle derailleur to have on stand by for when your fancy derailleur gets claimed victim by some West Virginia rocks

We've Got Questions: Digging Deep at Enve
@mattpatt: My point exactly. Any wheel, when ridden hard enough, will need to be retensioned. I still don't understand the benefit of internal nipples?

We've Got Questions: Digging Deep at Enve
Dear ENVE, why are your spokes internal? This makes for quite the hassle when fixing spoke tension that any wheel will inevitably develop. I would deal with internal nipples, so long as their is a legit reason? If I had all the money, this factor would keep me from buying enve rims.

Aaron Gwin – "As a Racer, You Just Want to Destroy People Every Weekend" - Video
Love the quotes about when to stop riding. "I'll be that 98 year old dude cruising around the streets with a grocery bag trying to launch it off a curb." -Gwin...Or Andreu's take, "You stop when you're done. When you can't even move anymore or you just die." Truth!

Online Deals - November 2017
ENVE - for those who want to remove their tire and pull off the rim tap just to adjust a couple loose spokes. Re-tape, re-inflate, re-stans, then go ride. Enjoy this quick fix at your local trailhead!

October 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
Will be making my first trip this June! Ridden most of the big time east coast resorts, Snowshoe WV, Colorado, but never to the mecca. Can't wait.

Thank you! We did not walk each line, see the tricks in person. I am very happy with the top three. Ethan Nell with that absolutely mental blind no hander to precision lily pad. Insane runs all around. Can't wait to get back on my bike!

Best Rampage Runs from 2001-2003 - Video
@RedBurn: Berrecloth's run last year was no doubt filthy. But that spine of death drop would have had no landing if it weren't for a massive # of sandbags. It is a balance game, guys need to build landings for stuff to be safe/rideable but where to draw line for what is too much digging gets muddy. Also Semenuk's run last year, sure had lots of tricks, but the whole top half was pure freeride glory. Either way I can't wait for the madness!
