Love riding and trying to improve bike handling skills and stamina, I go way faster than I should however I still respect hikers and other riders and I believe as riders we need to keep others trail using experiences as fun as our own.

Santa Cruz Nomad CC XO1

$3750 USD
I've very much enjoyed riding this bike the past 2 seasons. It pedals super well, thanks to the custom carbon wheels I had built with Nextie carbon rims (incredibly strong). It rolls so fast with the DT Swiss 240 hubs' amazing bearings. They really do make a difference. I've taken this bike on everything from all day epics to DH shuttle runs. It's in great shape with the exception of normal wear and scuff marks on the chainstays; however, there is a small scratch on the left fork stanchion. Having said that, it has not affected performance at all and no air has leaked out of the seal. Please make me an offer and get ready for a great summer!

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
e-bikes...like riding your moto on your local hiking/biking trails... Meth...high for hours, tons of energy, feel like superhero. Both sound fun, useful, and like you could get a lot done in a little bit of time. Both highly likely to cause more harm than good. But accord to Mr. Specialized: DONT KNOCK IT TILL YOU TRY IT. what a moron... I'll choose to never try either...

Finals Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2016
I disagree with Gwins statement that Bruni had him beat. A big part of racing is mental and being smart about it. Gwin knew where to hold back and where to pin it. If only Bruni held back just a little bit, THEN he would beaten Gwin. A lot of racers could have beaten Gwin on the first few time splits like Bruni if they weren't concerned about crashing and going balls out. But you have to stay on your bike to win.

What Would a Holiday in NZ Look Like? Video
chin up man. Keep practicing and working on body position and you'll get it! Notice his arms are straight and hes balancing with his hips. One day I spent a good couple hours in my drive way wheelieing and manualing, I still suck, but that practice improved my skills a lot. Imagine practicing 3-5 times a week for an hour. We'd be pro

2015 Photo of the Year Winner is...
I'm with you on that. Is it a gorgeous image? Yup. But when I look at it I don't feel anything. It doesn't "tell" me anything and doesn't inspire me to get out and ride. If i was walking in a museum with these two right next to each other I would gravitate to [Lee Trumpore's] roost picture. Congrats anyways to all of the contestants

Crankbrothers Mallet E Pedals - Review
My only complaint is the narrow q-factor. Puts my shoes real close to the pedal even with the cleat maxed out inboard. Added a pedal washer and that helped just enough. Other than that these pedals are amazing.
