Video: 'A Dogs Tale' - The Ultimate Story For Trail Dog Lovers
@jmtbf: Ignore the downvotes my dude. I am the biggest dog lover in the world and pretty much pro-dog everything everywhere all the time. Have even been called a dog whisperer b/c I can roll in the grass with the best of em and dogs seem to recognize my simple dog soul. But I have a sister who was badly attacked by a dog she knew SO well, and another person dear to me who had multiple bad experiences as a kid and the fear has lingered into adulthood...both have helped me empathize with people who are not comfortable around dogs, which makes me SO FREAKING SAD. Granted, the vast VAST majority of dogs are living effing angels, but sometimes shit goes down and it's really, really unfortunate. Dog lovers tend to think dogs are perfect and I'm guilty of it too, but they aren't, unfortunately. I agree with someone's comment above that you have to be a million percent confident in your dog/training to do trail runs on public/heavily trafficked trails. Last thing I want to do is scare someone or ruin a ride. That said, if you hate having that fear, learning about how dogs interpret human actions is super helpful. Also, if you have a friend with an old small sweetheart of a pup, start cuddling and work up from there.

Judges' Results: X Games Real MTB
Same dude, hopefully the exposure alone does a lot for his career. 2nd place out of a completely stacked field w/subjective judging is still incredible, especially considering he topped Zink's insanity. He's going to run away with the people's vote, too. That said all 6 vids blew my mind, I really loved this event in general, and Semenuk suffers from what all the goats suffer from in every sport ever and it's domination fatigue. Dude is drowning in medals but even he is not immune from being robbed. Could easily have another rampage gold or two. Throw down long enough in this sport and you'll get robbed blind. Wish Brage would've taken it, but gonna do a dirt dance until October in hopes that Rampage happens and Brage v the world goes down.

Bike Check: A Creative Rider's Custom 'Mind Management' Hornet Norco Sight
@GlassGuy: Hell yeah, everything is temporary anyway lol. I built up a Rune V3 frame in the spring and did a decent job with helicopter tape. First ride always feels a little barbaric on something new/nice, but then the fun kicks in and I've found that unless you straight up abuse stuff, it'll last.

Kind of the same dilemma as classic cars. I think you just gotta drive em, ride em. One of a kind paintjob but there are plenty of sight frames out there, so it isn't as bespoke as it could be and that's a good thing. Throw some ride wrap on there and shred it.
