Interview: Aaron Gwin on His Break With YT & Becoming a Team Owner
Make Intense Great Again! In all seriousness, this could be a great partnership. I used to love my OG Intense Tracer. Would be great to see them back up in the top podium spot.

Review: Intense's M29 is a DH Racing Thoroughbred
@paulaston: I agree, but I also think that reach is just one factor in the whole stability of the bike. With a slacker HA and a longer CS length, you end up with a massive wheelbase. Take a long trail/ enduro bike like the Ripmo in an XL has about 1250mm wheelbase vs this at about 1300mm despite having a shorter reach. IMHO, wheelbase and HA factors more into stability than just reach.

Texas Gets its First Lift-Access Bike Park
Funny that it always seem to be Texans that complain about elevation at races. Meanwhile, there’s all the Californians from the coast that are also at sea level and still end up winning without whining. For example: Kate Courtney, Curtis Keene, and Aaron Gwin. Then there’s east coasters like Richie Rude and Jeremy Bishop who also just get it done. Just saying....

Video: Josh Bryceland's First Ride on a Cannondale Habit
@samfr1000: that’s how I understand it. Robscopp was a pro skater and employee of the skate company when he got into mountain bikes and the skate company helped him start the bike company, as I remember the story.

Thule Purchases Tepui Outdoors, US-Based Roof Top Tent Company
I ended up with a hard shell rooftop tent after looking at slide in campers. RTT was cheaper and easier to take off ( I have a block and tackle that lifts the thing off my roof and stores it on the roof of my garage). At camp it takes one minute to setup, and then you don’t have to inflate a mattress and pull out sleeping bags because it’s ready to go stored up there. You don’t need a level site because your truck straddles uneven ground and a couple of rocks or a log is all you need to level your truck better than trying to find a level tent site. My setup is like a two bedroom condo: wife and kid sleep in the tent and I sleep with the dog in the camper shell with an IKEA foam queen mattress. My complete setup time is 5 minutes for both sleeping areas and 15 minutes pack down time including all camping and biking gear. Hate on it all you want, but I’ve been able to do two week camping road trips with my family and dog with minimal fuss and better sleeping than any tent pad. I’ve spent enough time sleeping on the ground as a wildland firefighter to know the benefits of this setup.

Field Test: Trance vs Sensor vs Habit vs SB130
After you ride a bike with a bigger dropper for awhile, it gets tough to go back to a shorter one. Besides, you don’t have to ride with it all the way down.

Field Test: Stumpjumper vs Remedy vs Process vs Bronson vs SB150
@mikelevy: I generally agree with you but there are guys like me who get an efficient peddler like a Ripmo and still use the climb switch for 5k vert days or if I’m on an xc ride and want something more fun and slack than an xc bike: a switch on an effecient climber turns a bigger trail bike into a Clyde friendly down country bike. Even with switch on a Stumpy, I still think it pedals like crap.
