Invite for Bas van Steenbergen & Graham Agassiz Given Green Light Post Injury - Rampage 2018
I think he’s got more important things to worry about than breaking his back in a freeride competition. Imagine Zink’s about there too. Not worth the risk when you’ve got a family to support and had a successful career already.

First Ride: Scott Ransom 900 Tuned
@rzicc: I'm not in the market yet, but always keeping an eye open and doing the occasional demo. Yeah I heard about the production problems, but I also heard that they're flying off the shelves. And I rode my buddy's ripmo and liked it. Alot of good bikes out there. Also considering the Scott Genius, just a parking lot test so far, but really like that bike too.

@bohns1: took a lap on the sb130 over the weekend. damn. i think yeti's gonna have a ripmo situation on their hands and sell out and be backordered for months. that bike is almost too good. and the sprawling wheelbase on the XL didn't feel unmanageable at all. sick bike.

First Ride: Crankbrothers Carbon Synthesis Wheels
@Nagrom77: that's gnarly... i wonder if the proliferation of hookless rims could be a factor? yeah i think everyone just needs to calm the fk down every time a new wheelset is released. We do love to b*tch though, especially at another expensive non-option. the margins must be lovely for the companies that can actually sell this stuff. not sold on carbon in perpetuem and when i get around to my next build (not soon) it'd be cool to go back to a nice alu build and see how it feels. if i were on 27.5 i doubt i'd go for carbon, but on 29 it takes some burly wheels to offset the additional flex you get in the larger rim, and then you start to feel like you're slogging around a heavy wheelset, because you are. anyway i'd give my money to We Are One decades before i'd give it to Crank Bros.

@Nagrom77: for sure nag77, and the carbon-curious who don't want to go full kool-aid can get carbon rims for ~$200 each (LB, Nextie, Tandell) which hold up pretty damn well and you can choose: 1) internal width & depth, 2) spoke count, 3) offset/standard, 4) rim weight (lightweight/"enduro"/dh layups, not to mention rim aesthetics. Consumers have awesome options these days if they want to dabble with the feel/benefits of carbonium but don't want to go too broke doing it. And lots of wheelbuilders use these brands already.

DVO Suspension Announces 2019 Line
@DVOSuspension: Speaking of rear shocks, is the Topaz 2.0 more betterer than my Topaz 1.0, and will it eventually be made available in non-trunnion sizes, e.g. 190x50? Thanks, the Topaz is a rad shock and your service has been great!

@mackg: thanks, i've only heard (read) good things about them. i'll be throwing a leg over one next weekend at outerbike! stoked. that's exactly what i'm targeting 140ish rear 150ish front, wagon size! and the flip adjust looks brilliant. screw geo adjust, everyone just puts their back in slackerest anyway.
