You internet too much. Coming from me, that's probably pretty insulting. I've got a BETD chainstay, a Risse seatstay, and the swing link off a first gen enduro to lower the BB. I used to dirtjump on that thing. Yours looks terrifying. In a good way. ... more »

It changes colors once you're on it. Neither purple nor green. "cosmic" bro. Cosmic. I own one. Jealous?

He liked it so much he sold it in under a year.

Because he likes pumping transitions, not 'verdoning' them.

"the first shock that has a lever that doesn't change the overall damping characteristics of the shock" (paraphrasing)

Um what? I thought that was the whole point.

He should have explained what 'full support' for the thing means to the buyer.

But damn good job on the piece. Way more informative than the other subpar websites.

I've been screaming that train since about 2003.

Totally agree.

It's nice to see wheelbases mentioned in bike handling in this piece too. Imma punch the next bitch who yaps about cockpit measurements when someone wants to talk about how a bike moves around at speed underneath you.

Why are mountain bikes in a flick about national parks?

Do they know something the rest of us don't or is this a statement along the lines of "there is nice riding NEAR some national parks?"

Yup. I've had to replace shifter housing and brake lines on multiple bikes from rocks hammering on them on the underside of the downtube. Thank you specialized. Mountain biking is still entirely new with no precedent for how to do it right........and cannondale is a brand new company. They'll figure it out soon.

Mavic 721s are my go-to. I bent or broke everything else I ever tried.

"crack a tweak?"

Is that a thing? I think I did that once and didn't sleep for 4 days.

It's true. Canadians don't recognize the importance of suspension in this phenomenon that occurs elsewhere in the world called ">15mph". Real suspension testing comes from 3mph stem humping off 5ft drops to splat and ramming into bulbous granite lumps uphill so that you can drag your ass with your brakes also dragging on the other side into a hole.

Seriously......you watch a fanny pack in your face for 3 minutes and that's your complaint?

I've seen a few of those kits in the winter time. Notice how all the clips are downhill. Most of what I've noticed is that they're really hard to move around as well as a snowmobile. A 450 4 stroke has just over a quarter of the horsepower as a normal ... more »

You're missing spomes' point. That was about as real as that bear chase video.

Added reply in a thread Do you think a World Cup DH career debut like Gwin's is possible anymore? 12/30/2014 9:54 PM

It's possible. But as Gwinn showed, it starts with jesus. And ping pong. Jesus and ping pong. Moto and bmx are cool and all but mastery of jesus and ping pong go a lot farther than people realize.
