Bootleg Canyon Gravity & Demo Fest Details
Scariest time I’ve had on a bike was following Lance Canfield through all the local lines at Bootleg! That place is fun and intimidating at the same time. Sharp rocks everywhere!

Burning Question: Is Super Boost 157 Spacing Going to Become the New Standard?
My old Iron Horse 6point and 7point both had 150mm rear hubs and 83mm BB... I thought it made perfect sense almost 10 years ago. On the flip side, my current bike, a Canfield Balance, has a 142mm rear hub with a 73mm BB, super short chainstays and room for 2.8x27.5 tires. Somehow Lance Canfield figured out how to make a 2.8 tire fit with a 142mm hub. I'm currently running 2.6x27.5 on 35mm internal width aluminum rims. Love the Balance and a new hub standard is not going to make me purchase a replacement.

Check Out: Hardtail Edition
@Ayyggss: Yeah, it would’ve been nice to see a Canfield Brothers EPO or Nimble 9 on this list. I’m loving my Nimble 9! It’s a sick hardtail.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
I meant to add, rim width is therefore related to desired tire size. i25mm rim for 2.3" tire or less. i30mm rim for 2.3"-2.5" tires. i35mm rim for 2.5" - 2.8" tires. Maxxis WT 2.4/2.5" tires are designed for i30-i35mm rims. Their older tires always measured narrower, but the new Maxxis tire sizes are true to size.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
I'm running the Maxxis 2.4 DHRII WT tires on all my bikes. On 30mm internal width rims, I can feel squirming and burps on aggressive corners. On the 35mm internal rims, I have experienced no squirming and burping. I run 20f/25r psi. I never did any scientific comparisons, but my general impression is that the 35mm internal width rims provide more tire support. Plus, they look bad ass. I plan on trying out a set of 2.6 Forekasters as my next tire. I think a 35mm internal width rim would be ideal for a 2.6 tire. Seems like tire size preference is related to the trails we frequently ride. My friends in Minnesota don't run anything larger than 2.3 tires while my friends in Boulder City don't run anything smaller than a 2.5 tire. Most people at Bootleg are running 2.6 and larger.

Media Days Randoms II - Eurobike Media Days
I also carry the Topeak Ratchet tool kit. It's a really nice product, light and a pleasure to use.

Shimano's Team Truck Walkthrough - Val di Sole World Cup 2018
No matter how many Hawaiian trucker hats sram dishes out at races, I still prefer Shimano.

@philrossnz: I suppose you're right. At least I got a down vote out my comment.

Note to other fork companies: If you paint your fork green, we're going to think DVO. Pick a different color you hosers.
