Montana Treasures: Missoula with Ben Horan - Video
Mormon Peak/Lolo Peak/Mill Creek is one of the coolest trails I've ever ridden. I was in town to race, but that trail, despite the constant dismounts for deadfall, was the highlight of my trip

Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol/PARTS STILL AVAILABLE

$2700 USD
SOLD THE FRAME. I HAVE THE PARTS Up for sale is my Medium Trail Pistol. 130mm rear, 150mm front. This bike is one of the best handling bikes in it's class, and can take on everything from an xc ride to full blown enduro racing. It has the stiffest rear end of any trail bike I have ridden - it's on par with a dh bike. I have it set up on the aggressive side, but a it rides fantastically with a single tube air shock and down to a 120mm fork as well. GG frames run larger; the medium has a very modern, 465mm reach. Big bonus - these frames are handmade in Denver. The specs are as follow: Fork - rock Shox Lyrik Dual Position 150/120 Shock - Rockshox Super Deluxe Coil Wheels - Industry Enduro S 29 305 Brakes - SRAM Guide R Rotors - Formula 180mm front and rear Tires - On One Chunky Monkey 2.4 Cassette - SRAM HG 1150 Shifter - SRAM GX 11 speed Derailleur - SRAM GX 11 Speed Seatpost - KS Lev Integra 125mm w/ Southpaw remote Headset - FSA DX Pro Bars - your choice of used Race Face Atlas 780mm or new, unused Race Face Ride 760mm Stem - Race Face Aeffect 50x31.8mm Saddle - ANVL Forge Stealth Cromo Crankset - Race Face Aeffect R Chainring - Race face 30t Grips - Velo Single Clamp No pedals The bike was ridden for 2017. The fork was put on the bike brand new in May. The wheels have less than 20 rides on them (I usually ran my DTs.) The derailleur was replaced in July with a brand new GX. The cassette, saddle, chainring, chain, grips and tires are brand spanking new. The bike has not been ridden since the end of July, and is mechanic owned. I am in the process of tearing down the frame and rebuilding everything except the suspension. That includes servicing the bearings. A few notes - I can switch out any parts you like for additional cost. Ask me if you are interested, and we can work something out. I can also service the fork before purchase, for $50, including parts. The pictures show a different bar/stem/grip and saddle combo.

The Bike That Won the Championship - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
@wcjrush: while all that is true, clipless still provide consistency of riding and pedaling position. I ride in flats most of the year, and was so convinced they were faster, so I did some timed runs on multiple trails, back to back with clipless and flats, and found that through the roughest stuff, I was much more consistent (and thus faster) clipped in. The flats were actually closest on the flowy, pedally, fast downhill where I could really benefit from sliding hte bike through corners. I know I don't represent every rider, but I have talked to numerous other people, and even kids with dirt jump backgrounds find clipless to be more consistent, and thus faster through the rough. Flats are great, Sam is an animal, but this is the exception to the rule and not the norm.

Tech Randoms - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
@Satanslittlehelper: I know, I always think, how do you not fall off your bars? I run mine under level, so that in the majority of technical and steep terrain, my wrists are flat. Running them totally level outs my wrists too bent upwards, but hey, it's preference. edit: @Thustlewhumber @seraph Mine are more level than Cedric's, but Damiens and Yoanns are WAY up there still, compared to my personal bikes.

Tech Randoms - Finale Ligure EWS 2017
@RedRedRe: The real story is that Shimano is awesome, but they aren't making the products that people want, and they are difficult to deal with from a mechanic/bike shop perspective. They have some great reps but the company itself needs to get its head out of its ass. They also have terrible control (or just total lack of attention) over their pricing. You can often find shimano shit scattered across the web, cheaper than cost, yet it's much harder for many shops (especially the small ones who don't do mega business) to even get a full range of Shimano stuff in. Until Eagle (which works great, I'm not sure I'm sold though...), SRAM was still dragging behind Shimano, but even the Shimano die hards will admit that the new SRAM stuff is pretty killer (I'm one of those guys). I think that's a lot of what you are seeing - SRAM is spending money connecting with the markets and figuring out what people want. Yeah, their Guide brakes have issues, but they rolled out GX 12 speed, while Shimano's 11 speed XT cassette looks like it's from 2012. just my .02

From the Top: Pinion's Christoph Lerman
@chuxxo: you get used to it. It's actually a far faster and superior shifting method. You should never shift under torque with a normal drivetrain, which is far more inconvenient. With the Pinion, you learn to back off for a fraction of a second and then bam, you can be back on it, full gas, several gears lower. It takes far more than a fraction of a second to go up and down a cassette.

@Thustlewhumber: I rode a Pinion equipped trail bike for a season, and I have nothing but praise for the gearbox. The only mild irk was the slow engagement (felt like a lower end hub)

FSA's New Dropper Post - Interbike 2017
While I agree with you as far as interesting reading, it's still good to see everyone making droppers now.... it drives innovation up and costs down, even if there's tons of these relatively similar droppers being pushed out.
