BUILDER - Ask Us Anything - All Done
When we were kids I used to beat him up. When it comes to biking I would say there's none. Biking is a passion we share and are stoked to enjoy it together when we can.

Trial and error. Be creative and not scared to fail.

Good question. It certainly creeps into my head sometimes when I'm pushing myself but I feel the lines I'm riding are relative to my skill level and what I'm comfortable doing so there's less risk. I also take lots of measures to ensure crash zones are safe so if something does go wrong on a move the impact is minimal. The most damaging crash I had filming for the movie was actually just riding trail where I slipped out and smoked a tree...the way it goes I guess. Family and paying the bills are the most important but my love for the sport and my own progression is still there which is why I wanted to have a strong segment. Also, I look forward to showing my sons the movie one day which is motivation enough.

@retrogrump. Tough one for sure as the original concept had 6 riders and way more building. As Scott alluded to we needed capital to make the movie happen which expanded the list of riders and projects. Keeping the movie to a moderate length of time was important or we would lose the audience and the time it would have taken to film all the riders with a deeper look at the buiding concept was not there. Scott had a full year to film and we still ran out of time on some pieces. Your comments and others similar confirm we can go deeper on something similar. Thanks for watiching.

@aaronhuang. I feel for you man. I've had lines and trails torn down and it is a gut wrenching feeling. That being said as long as someone builds on property they don't own the chances of running into conflict or having your hard work destroyed is real and a risk we all take. I don't know the scene for you but a good start would be to do your best to get in touch with land owners to see if there are any agreements that can be made. Tough one for sure if the authorities are against building. As for rocks and trees my only suggestion is to look for other zones or use the rocks to your advantage for rock work (berms ect). Good luck!

Video: James Doerfling Wants to Know if Winter is Over Yet
@jesusrendon. The suspension design is proprietary to Knolly which means there is no other suspension design that compares in the market. Issues are pretty much non existant. I've been riding my Warden for over a year and had no issues. I can tell you how amazing the bike is but you really need to ride one to "get it." Hope this helps. Ryan

Factory Tour: Formula Brakes
Very cool to see the factory and how these brakes are made. I have been running Formula brakes for a while now and I continue to be impressed with how good they are. If you ride them you already know how they perform. Certainly worth a look if you are unfamiliar with them...you won't be disappointed:) Keep up the good work guys!!!! Ryan

Hi Guys, Suggestion to check with local builders in the area to show common courtesy before shooting a line. Especially one that had a dummy lock and chain on it to prevent people from shooting it. Not an issue to ride moves you find but it's not professional to shoot and publish lines that you didn't build. Thanks for the consideration moving forward.

Spank Spike Race28 Wheelset Review
Great to see this wheel set getting the attention it deserves. I've had the same set on my DH bike for 8 months and I haven't had to touch them for any tuning. Besides a few scratches they have been holding up very well. I can't remember the last time I had a pinch flat and I'm consistently getting asked about the style and performance. I've been challenged to see if I can break these rims on purpose while riding. Might try it out to see if any flaws exist...haven't been able to find any yet. A few of my riding buddies have switched over in the past few months and everyone is stoked.
