Nice. Timing is almost everything. It looks like a lot of different sized lines. Did you guys plan it out beforehand and work by the numbers? Or was it freestyle?

Hook a kid up and enjoy the jerky. At least that's my vote. Maybe he could come and sweep out the warehouse?

What is Rupert's bike? That's a sexy beast, and quite advanced if homemade. I like the turned up top tube under the brace.

Thanks for those reposts Fred. And welcome to the club Goos3.

Reply to Which Component Do You Drop First? 2/4/2016 4:18 PM

I once did a forty one mile single speed race on my downhill bike and survived. Though the race was rather flat and I didn't use much of the suspension or brakes, I still say loose the gears.

Wow, that's a lot of dirt moved. Did you guys have heavy equipment?

Good point on the toe protection. It occurred to me as I was reading that ,that instead of a big, covers the whole front of the foot and doesn't flex much type support, it could connect to the sole of the shoe and wrap around just the front and sides ... more »

Thanks for that Woody.

Crazy. Or is it psychopathic?

Rightish face but way too tall.

That Bruni prototype is only that. It's a geometry mule to fine tune the feel of the suspension. Once they, or he, likes it, it will be whittled away to look like the Gwin link, just with slightly different geometry.

Sven should know. Does it really matter as long as they flow? Last time that I was there they were in the forty foot range. They've gotten bigger since. I seem to recall an empty ski slope just along side. Let's build Crabapple Fest!

If anything, that shot must be of an early prototype of the Gwin link. The part that he rode (Above.) was way lighter. I'm sure that if Spec offers this part in the future it will be somewhere in between the two.

Nope. Check the face at :49.

Reply to [Video] How to CORRECTLY setup rebound damping 1/25/2016 5:18 PM

Thanks Andrexter. That was well useful. I've always used to use just a basic off the bike push and release method and tuned the rebound so that when I release quickly the tire only just stays on the ground instead of bouncing up. Perhaps that technique ... more »

Here's a cool Audi/Red Bull video. I wonder what they will come up with for the Gwin ski/DH steep hill video and when it will drop. And if it will mean anything in relation to this thread?

Reply to [POLL] Where is Gwin going? 1/22/2016 4:19 PM

Yea. I'm gonna boycott him for the whole season and promise not to get excited if he does well. He was never very big in MX was he? I thought he was mostly a mini bike specialist. I voted back to Martin Whitely.

Shitty. Wouldn't it be nice to just ride without having to look over our shoulders instead of at the trail ahead?

Lee... I Hope that spider bites you... After you tell us...

Padding for the inside of the ankle is key for catching tail whips and imperfect foot placement in DH.
