I raced bmx as a kid but didn't so much as touch a bike for over ten years. I found myself looking for a new outlet when it wasn't snowboard season, then I found mountain biking... there's no looking back now Wink

Timed Training Results: Vallnord DH World Cup 2018
@fecalmaster: There is a difference between being a troll and being a d*ck... you sir tend to trend towards the latter... he has definitely been smoking the competition for the past few rounds! Why exactly is Amaury an idiot for this?!

Media Days Randoms II - Eurobike Media Days
@packfill: I would bet money that Spesh lays up their frame to include the hole rather than cutting it. The extra complexity that the mold for this frame needs for the braces that the shock mounts to would be about on par to Spech's design. I have to agree with Waki on this one.

Track Walk Photo Epic: Marching into Battle - Val di Sole World Cup 2018
He got 2nd in Croatia then qualified first the last 2 races and was in the green on his race runs till he flatted and crashed. It was definitely a bold statement but you can be the fastest and not be in first place, consistency and luck play a part too!

Speed and Style is cool and all but with both downhill skills and the ability to throw tricks like that, I want to see him at Rampage!!!

Bike Check: Reed Boggs' Trek Ticket S - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
@patrick-marsh: That general concept is correct the way I understand it but with the wider mountain bike rim you also have more volume per square inch of rim. If all things were equal, ratios of volume to rim width, I would 100% agree but they aren't necessarily and I'm still of the frame of mind that the use conditions and how the rims are designed play a bigger part. In the end what I'm saying is, I think we're both right. ????

Bike Check: Reed Boggs' Trek Ticket S - Crankworx Innsbruck 2018
@IllestT: Volume isn't necessarily correct... tires and rims are designed around their use conditions. Road tires want as little rolling resistance as possible so a hard, smooth tire, with a small contact patch is the best for that application. Road tires and rims are are then designed around higher pressures in order to get those characteristics and vice versa with mountain bike tires.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@duzzi: If you want a wide range and less gears, then sram has that covered too... although the jumps amd weight are even worse.

Jeff Kendall-Weed Finding Flow On Washington's Gnarliest Legal Trail
@JeffWeed: I can think of a few in our area(I also live in Bellingham and have seen you out on the trails) but I don't want to name them here... Think east on 542 and SE of Galbraith... I'm not saying I'm good enough to ride these trails but they exist and I've walked down a few of them lol.
