*probably actually saves more like 200 grams / nearly 1/2 lb... for me, considering the money I spend on every component to save that sort of weight, this is cheap for that weight drop.

@Tmackstab: I agree! Also, according to their website the "spare" version is 45 grams. The 85 gram version they claim is twice as durable as a standard tube.

9 Mountain Bike Grips Ridden & Rated
I like deity's latest grips (and their old ones though those are no longer available). The latest are only one clamp... I have never had one come loose, and it is handy at times to have the rubber outside edge when leaning the bike against your vehicle, etc...

Video: Another Dose of Mindblowing Riding From Chris Akrigg
I am actually surprised Mongoose cannot make more out of their sponsorship of a guy like this. As a brand that has been around forever, if they started selling high-end spec'd bikes at a reasonable price they could be seen as a much more desirable brand... but if you take the time to go to their website you will not find something that looks like what Chris is riding. In any case, good on them for sponsoring his bad-ass riding.

Totally Rad Dude. Chris is the king of making the nearly impossible look simple. I love this sort of riding, but cannot do 1% of this. Amazing!

Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
An awesome debate for those who care. There’s no doubt that a light bike is awesome if you’ve got to peddle up and if you’re looking to be as nimble as possible. All of the idiots stating otherwise haven’t ridden a light bike or only ride downhill. I mean, really, extra heft is totally cool for those who ride downhill only. And, sturdy bikes with solid weight are actually helpful in that application. Carbon hardtails are awesome at around 20 lbs easily available nowadays in size L. But those are hard on the back for rough terrain. I love the intense spider at about 28 lbs and YT Jeffsy at about 29 lbs in size L. Both are capable of most anything and really solid going up and down. No doubt if you just go downhill a bigger and heavier bike can actually help and the specs / weight matter much less. To me while I love a light bike I’m happy to ride 28-29 lbs over 22 lbs to gain 4-6 inches of travel on a bike that’s still super efficient. Still, if you’ve got to peddle up and want some rear travel, I’ll trade just about anything to stay in the 27-30 lb range rather than going up to 32-33, much less 40. The guys riding those bikes are clueless or don’t ever ride uphill.

That is an awesome shot! Is this actually the way to go into a narrow crevice or a wipeout into a rock face?

Very cool video. You can feel the unique speed of a no peddle downhill run and almost smell 1980 in the air!
