Video: The Ultimate Vintage GT Bike Collector
I dig the dedication/passion, and had my own flashbacks of seeing a GT on the trails, especially lusting over a Zaskar, but to say the stuff back then was built better/"built to last" compared to modern stuff...eh, I trashed a LOT of Deore LX, including snapped cranks and BB...once my wallet got a little thicker(or made more buddies in bike shops), I started getting XT and XTR. I'll always love the easy set up of V-brakes too!

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@bohns1: easy decision for me to stick with Transition...I don't want to deal with that extra shock in the Yeti, and I'm wanting to keep my "small" wheels :)

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@jrocksdh: Once I jumped on the Transition Scout I sold both my SC bikes. They feel flat/dull compared to the Scout. And I can't see them as good looking bikes or of any interest anymore

Ohlins Recall RXF 36 & RXF 34 Air Forks
@fullfacemike: Yeah, I'm the only one that doesn't use a torque wrench. Sure.(read above comments as well my statement how the Race Face mechanic wasn't using one in the instructional video) Don't worry about it. And actually, my '67 Cougar has seatbelts that are known to cut people in half, so..I don't use them :) I've been riding a long time, built a lot of bikes..never used a torque wrench. I've had plenty of parts/frames snap and break but none due to improper torque. Cheers

Ohlins Recall RXF 36 & RXF 34 Air Forks
@tremeer023: Up until kind of recently "torque spec" was not something I ever heard. Any bike shop I was in, buddies doing maintenace, etc...all things were tightened, as you say "nice and tight". I had an issue with a Race Face BB(multiple times) and I contacted RF..they were asking me if i had torqued to the proper number(whatever the hell that made up word is). I responded with.."I have no idea..I just tighten til it feels right, and in fact the guy on your online video does the same thing!" Truth..the RF mechanic didn't use a torque wrench. The torque thing drives me nuts!

Jamis' New 3VO-Suspended Hardline Enduro Bike - Interbike 2018
I had a Jamis Dakar XLT 3.0(what is that...almost 15 years ago??). It was my first "long travel" bike and it truly changed my riding. I snapped a chainstay within the first month, but once that was replaced I beat the absolute hell out of that bike! To this day one of my favorite bikes because of how it opened up my riding and style. (I sold the frame eventually to some guy in Russia....anodized paint was chipped like freckles from all the rocks hitting the underside, the Manitou 4-way was seized in the frame...$40. I wonder how it did.) I always felt like Jamis is an underdog in the MTB game, so it's cool to see them getting some attention, and I'd really like to try this bike

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
A bunch of years ago one of Kabush's Kona race bikes was dropped off at my local bike shop(it was stolen out of a trailer, insurance paid, bikes were found and were handed out to Kona dealers). The owner of the shop thought I should grab this bike since I was at the time racing XC. The most notable item that had to be replaced was the seatpost which had been cut as short as could still work...and milled out to remove material. Yeah, I think he cared about weight, ha ha. This was XC however and they tend to be a bit more obsessive I think. I ended up doing a pretty sweet custom paint job on the bike and fork then snapped the top tube bunny hopping a curb.

Video: Ripping Scott's New Ransom
But don't all bikes look fast(or "fast as F*ck!) when pros are riding them in a video?
