Reply to Is it possible to grow an MTB STREET Youtube channel? 4/18/2015 8:35 AM

Sure. Go for it? Why bother even thinking about failure? Do what you like and have fun. I'll watch. I'm curious, do you ride BMX style street moves or are you into street trials? I used to do both years ago.

Reply to Why are so many bikes black? 4/18/2015 8:32 AM

Most of my bikes that I've made are black. Two hard tails and my DH bike. For my slope bike I went the opposite with white. I've liked my bikes "Murdered" for years now, not just as a reaction to all of the horribly ugly neon bikes popping up now a days. ... more »

And it looks like a no chain required course.

Happy... Happy... Joy......... Joy.........

Can't wait. Something in me says that after years of coming up and being ready... It's time for Loric to step up and become a national hero. If only for the potential Disney fairytale story money involved.

Well said Mr. Woo.

I've been running 20x110 on all my bikes since the DHO was released. So I'm definitely gonna stay with that. I've got too many front wheels to go back now. For the rear, I'm gonna have to max it out at 150mm so that the maximum number of options are ... more »

You could trim the bottom of a presta valve so that there's no rubber or anything left at the base then tap a brass pipe cap to accept it with a bit of thread locker.

That was a whole lot of fun. Thanks and keep it up.

We have black bears here locally, But that's a great idea, why claim deer when bear is a possibility. Until further memory, I ran into a damn black bear on my motorcycle!

Thanks man, the scabs are starting to come off.

Reply to 2014 Kona Operator Carbon - Large - Brand New 3/24/2015 6:05 PM

It''s that scary tank... and the current economy... and the lack of a current ripper racer or freeride pro riding Kona I guess. She's a sexy beast.

If nothing else, it looks faster. I like the alternate triple triangle design.

I got my eye on you you crazy eyed scoundrel... Ride on.

See ya soon. You can probably just change your name on the current account, so that there aren't two of you.

Reply to Is xcbiker a bad name? 3/24/2015 8:59 AM

Oh now I believe that I've replied to a post before. But you could be on to something. XC isn't exactly the primary focus of this website. Perhaps SuperBadassedEnduroStar might garner more attention. But screw that. Be true to yourself.

I'm a big fan of the simple single pivot. I'm proud that at least one major company still embraces it. Thank you Orange. And at some point I decided that I could fit 650s in a 26" swing arm, so the design is based on that assumption.

Reply to Big Bird's Bikes 3/20/2015 4:33 PM

OK. So here are all of the numbers for my next bike to build. A lot of it is my own theory, but I really got the go ahead to realize it after the DirtMag Dan Atherton interview where they give some of the numbers on his personal bike. This one is based ... more »

Reply to Big Bird's Bikes 3/20/2015 10:30 AM

I do use flats with no problems. On a typical XL frame with standard geometry, I end up with the seat so high and as a result back, that I end up doing wheelies up climbs. I have a drawing for a trail frame that I haven't been able to build yet, that ... more »

Reply to Big Bird's Bikes 3/19/2015 4:25 PM

Well done Sir! Sometimes the obvious eludes me. I went searching on the DirtMag site. And in terms of the short rear end, it helps it turn very quickly. I was going to say "Turns on a dime." but you probably don't have dimes in SVN. As I said in the ... more »
