I love mountain biking! I am enjoying working on my technical skills such as cornering, manuals, 180's, 360's etc. also have a lot of fun racing the clock. I love trail building and have been having a lot of fun riding and maintaining the trails at Spring Mount PA.

Must Watch: 16-Year-Old Anthony Shelly Absolutely Sending It in the Whistler Bike Park
I agree 100%. Full disclosure, sometimes I can take 1 hand off the bars, and I can kind of manual that's about it. I absolutely love seeing the big gaps, whips, blowing up berms, nose manuals, but the crank flips do nothing for me and just make it look like you're trying too hard/look dumb awkward. Trying to stick a "Trick" in where there doesn't need to be one

Review: Specialized Dissident 2 Helmet - Downhill Safety at an Enduro Weight
You're assuming Less Weight = Less safe and that's not inherently true. Also there is an argument that a lighter more comfortable helmet means you will be more likely to grab it off the shelf vs. your lightweight trail helmet. The safest helmet is the one you are actually going to wear. If it was safety above all else we would all be wearing Motocross helmets (In which you would still get concussed) and that's not the case.

The second question reminds me of that Senator that demanded that the Google CEO answer whether his iPhone is listening to him.

First Ride: Wildwood Cycles Titanium Trail Bike
@mariomtblt: You right, you right. That is a good point. Assuming the stresses are always under that Fatigue limit, then there is nothing to worry about. But analyzing the stresses and forces on a bike is pretty tough. Large assumptions have to be made for lab tasting, and I wonder how accurate they are to real world. That would be a tough thing to simulate with torsional stresses, vibrations, bending, etc. Idk if all you guys aren't worried, maybe I'm overthinking it!

First Ride: Wildwood Cycles Titanium Trail Bike
Yea in this case, I have to believe that the flex stay approach was taken for simplicity sake and easy of manufacturing. I'm not going to lie, flex stays on a super small brand do make me a little nervous. Was it fatigue tested to 1,000,000 cycles? Is it a "if it don't break, don't fix it" approach? Cool bike, that I would never be willing to spend the money on. But for someone who is, that would be info that I feel would be important.
