I'm 20 years old and I love to bike and run track. I recently started racing cyclocross at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO so I'm fit like a lemur!

Review: Canyon Sender vs Specialized Demo vs Cube Two15 vs Commencal Supreme - DH Bike Week
@DoubleCrownAddict: Good thing it's a downhill bike and you won't be going slow. My Geometron DH bike is at ~60.75 degrees (angle set, long rear end, and fork legs slid all the way down) with 460mm chainstays, it still feels fine on the slowest of downhill bike trails under my 6'4" self. The only issue is that Commencal's tolerances are way off for this frame.

Video: Tire Pressure is Way More Important Than You Might Think - The Explainer
@MikeyMT: My problem going under 26 is that I will get too much tire roll on jump faces and berms, Charlie probably has the same issue. With inserts it's not that the tire is rolling off the bead letting air out, it's just enough squirm when pushing hard to throw you off balance/line. Robot man rides faster than the average weekend warrior/racer and has to run fairly more aggressive settings than the average guy.

@thenotoriousmic: Yes, with the point being he's running too much pressure.

Totally, I really don't understand the people that show up for the their first day at the bike park, put their gear on, grab the bike and pedal to the lift. The ski hill we're at is at least a couple thousand feet higher than where they usually ride, the temperatures are different each day, the dirt is different, the rocks are different, the speeds are different, your chain hasn't been lubed, your spokes haven't been checked, etc. Why not take the 15 minutes to make sure your bike is better set up for the conditions?

I'm 185lb in running shorts and no shirt on 27.5 DH casing Assegai tubeless front and rear with Stan's Flow rims laced to Hope hubs on my DH bike. I run 26-27psi in the front and 27-29psi in the rear. I check spoke tension between every ride and set my pressures within ^those^ ranges for the day's tracks while at the parking lot to account for temperature and altitude differences. I also set my suspension pressures at this time as well. I ride decently quick on 99% lift service trails and have not ever snapped a wheel, even when jumping +45' into cow track holes and rock multiple times a run 6+ runs a day. I have been able to come up short on large unintended trail triples without an issue and hit rock laden G-outs at over 30mph and still only need to tension the wheels after the entire 15 run day of this. My rear wheel is needing a new rim now after a 3 seasons of beating yet it holds air and doesn't "snap" under my riding. I am rather long legged so that might help smooth things out, yet I don't see how you could be so much harsher on components that you must run such ridiculous pressures to avoid wheel failure. With that sort of pressure your corner speed isn't going to be great on rough and rocky trails, further putting me into disbelief that these pressures are necessary. I'm guessing you buy very cheap wheels or don't take care to tension, true, and check pressures between each ride if you can't run 32psi or less in the rear.

First Ride: 2021 Forbidden Dreadnought - Ready for Anything
@porkchopsandwich: Longer chainstays will allow you to carry more speed through flatter corners.

Pinkbike Poll: How Long Do Bike Parts Last?
No, you're just a hack with poor line choice and too low tire pressure.

Why should Maes be wearing a mask? He's teammates with Wyn and will be sharing the same space/bubble with him throughout the weekend.
