Claudio Rides Stevie Smith's Bike
Awesome tribute to Stevie, slaying his favorite trail on his trusty steed. Also, Claudio continues to impress me, first decent on a new trail, on a bike he's never ridden, set up for somebody else, after laying asphalt all day, giving commentary the whole ride, and he still rips!

2018 Specialized Epic - First Ride
I rode my 2005 yeti 575 for years, put unknown thousands of miles on it, now my brother is riding it. 11 years later, flex-stays are still kicking ass. I'd be even less worried about them in this bike, full carbon rear and means no glue holding the pivot into the tubing, that eliminates the only weak link

Pivot Phoenix DH Carbon - Review
I was just talking about it the other day, we were pretty sure the entire concept was dead, as it should be. I guess we were wrong.

Marin's 2018 Collection
Riddle me this, since you sound like you're a Marin dealer. Is the B17 just a Rift Zone with low-fat tires? Loving the looks of the B17, and the price makes it a strong contender for my Fiance, but I'd like to be able to put my spare 29" wheelsets with fast rolling tires on it for when we're just shredding paved bike-paths.

Summer Apparel Roundup - 8 Men's Kits Reviewed
@meagerdude: Luckily I have a pretty good alteration shop near the house, and mostly bought previous year's gear on close-out so there's room in the budget for adding proper waist-band closure so my older MTB shorts are all back in action. Since discovering Columbia's quick dry PFG shorts at the outlet store for $15, it's hard to bring myself to buy actual MTB brand gear anymore. @UtahBikeMike: That's what TLD said when I talked to their guy at a trade-show, so I bought a size bigger, now not only to the snaps come undone, they'll fall off even on the rare occasion that snaps aren't coming undone. I've literally never seen snaps on any pair of shorts or pants outside the MTB world, and I believe there's a reason for that.

A button would work, one of the riveted on metal buttons like a pair of jeans or Carhartts, those ratchets are pretty nice too. A button is just so damn simple and I've never once had a button come undone. Go OTB and skid to a stop on your chest, your shorts fall off. Wear them too many times and wear out the snap, your shorts fall off. Reach for something at a weird angle, your shorts fall off. Sit weird. your shorts fall off. catch your shorts on a cactus, your shorts fall off. Take too deep of a breath, your shorts fall off. You know what shorts don't fall off while riding? My Columbia hiking shorts with a damn button. Snaps are complete garbage.

Old Navy performance activewear, snag it on sale, usually $4-5/shirt, and available in all the best enduro specific colorways like neon baby-shit, also available in weird colors like "blue" and "black" if you're a real freak.

Why do MTB shorts have snaps on the waistband? No other shorts have snaps, because snaps suck. Yet somehow, when shorts are neon colored and $100, they think they'll not suck.
