I just worry about collateral damage. The citizen near by. But then again, if a citizen looks the other way while someone steals a bike, perhaps they deserve it too.

I stopped into CBO the other day and they were avidly checking out the list. Hopefully one lands there.They have quite a collection.

Nice Thomas/Logan. There seems to be a time/space portal between Colorado and Santa Cruz, CA. May you find your way there. Trails highly recommended.

Nice! Be better than a Bot! Bots ride rigid. You should flow like water. Like Bruce.

Welcome to Vital. I'll check out you're Youtube like and you think about an "Introduce Yourself." Go! And you better not be one of those crazy Bots. Nice, Not Bot. Well done. Subscribed.

Check out the little link at the top, just under the steer tube. The damping is all contained inside the steer tube and is adjustable on the fly from the top. It's shown in the video.

Ugly but effective. When does the DH version come out?

The ultimate chute run.

Just nit picking here, but I always rout the front brake line to the inside of the fork leg to avoid damage.

Andreau is kicking ass and confident. He's a major threat.

You can, but it will slacken your head angle (Good for some.) and raise your BB (Bad for most.)

Loose the slime ball yellow.

So tough to say. I think that Gwin has got to be embarrassed and pissed off enough after having to coast down in Andora to really focus and get this title. Bruni is a possibility right along with Troy and Hart. I'd love to see Josh go out with a bang, ... more »

Longer and lower CG?

I'm strictly traditional. I rode bikes long before motos. I have no problems switching between the two now.

Mmmm. Beer. Thank you.

Yeah Devin!

I've been on both sides of this coin. One just pulls over enough to allow a pass.

Reply to The Internet Was Wrong: Short Chainstays Suck* 7/18/2016 1:44 PM

I respectfully disagree. I am my own "Bike manufacturer." and at 6'7" tall, my current DH bike has 16 3/8" chain stays and I love it. With front centers getting linger and longer, and mine are plenty long, a short chain stay keeps the overall wheel base ... more »

No arguments here. I'd just like to second the motion of "Learn to dirt jump." You'll never be the fastest down a trail if you're slamming on the brakes for every lip. Besides... Jumping is fun.
