Video: 50to01's Raw 2018 Highlights
Foot plants. So rad and so much commitment and as much as I love them, my rebuilt knee just doesn’t allow for it. I was a skateboarder/snowboarder throughout my youth through 20’s; big knee injury forced the change to 2-wheels and that’s 20 years ago but man these guys remind me of skating and the desire to session and stomp something rad even if it takes 20 tries. Please continue to tap into Cardiel’s stoke! That was my favorite 50:01 edit ever. Plus I like how they supposedly speak English like me but I have to really concentrate to figure out what they are saying.

Unno's Slack XC Bike Might be the Future of XC
How about the Honzo which has a 68 HA w a 120mm fork and up-fork it to 140mm? Boom, 67 deg HA carbon hardtail for less than half the money.

Lawsuit Claims Search & Rescue Delays Contributed to Mountain Biker's Death
@thejake: I live in Orange County only a few miles from Santiago peak and can ride there from my driveway. I'd like to just add a few things as someone who has local knowledge. 1.) Yes it is a "well known network" but even though you are never are that far from civilization (as the crow flies) it is pretty remote up there especially at that time of year. Many times when I am solo up there I don't see anyone else. 2.) Another thing people might not understand unless they lived here is that our soil doesn't handle rain well. Once a threshold of rain is reached, the mud starts to cake to tires so bad that you literally cannot make progress. You have to shoulder your bike and walk as every 50 feet it gets so caked again you have to clear it. 3.) The ride he was doing was a pure gravel grinder. It is not "gnarly" in any sense. It's a 12 foot wide fire road. 4.) Hikers and bikers are routinely rescued with helicopters around here. It's obvious in hindsight but heading out solo into a remote area that can't handle rain well, when rain and cold temperatures are in the forecast and not being dressed warm enough had fatal consequences. The rain and weather was what prevented the helicopters and trucks from going out like they normally would have.

Review: Santa Cruz Bronson V3
One of my riding buddies took a gamble and runs a float x2 on his size large Bronson. When sagged there is no clearance issue but topped out the air can is almost touching the frame. He loves it.

@larryssman7: Make sure to build some downcountry trails and then I'm sure the trash talk will stop

Video: Pivot Launches Les Fat 2 with "Ed Gets Fat Part 2"
@Timo82: sarcasm can often go undetected around here. I agree with your take on things. Fatbikes look like great fun to me and if/when I ever move back to a town with real winter I will get one guaranteed.

Just for shits....that is the same reach as on a Nomad 3 size large which by my observations around where I live, a lot of guys are still making work just fine. Maybe that's not long and slack enough for fatbiking though - I've never tried it.

Video: The Privateer Heads to Finale Ligure
@adamprice: What you may not realize is that you are now also a bit of a legend to all the dudes like me stuck behind desks wondering if it's possible. Just watching the series we could all see how much you progressed. Congrats!

Video: Endless Style at SilverStar
If he were a real badass he’d be styling those airs on a 100 mm xc bike with a sky high seatpost. Anyone could do that with their seat down......right? The mixed messages these days have me so confused.
