Is flying to an enduro race less of a carbon imprint than flying to a world cup?

Man I was just thinking: I really need some stress risers on the inside of my steerer tube right at my stem. Those threads are just the ticket!

Relentless straight sections suck because they justify 29" dh bikes.

Seriously. I remember quite a few "professional" racers bitching and moaning about everything from tracks being too hard in a section to tape laying on the ground when they went through. 15 years ago When you spend as much time preparing for these little ... more »

Thanks a bunch for talking to Jose spomes. Probably the best one yet! I think he's out in left field with justifying boost because no way that exists over the 150-ish standards in 5 years (and he probably knows this) because everyone with a dh bike already knows all they had to do was move to a 157/20mm standard and get even better benefits on the goals. But super cool hearing his breadth of experience.

I agree with you Kris and thought the same thing when he was discussing it. Dropping 4-6k every 3 years when a lot of times a shock and maybe a new fork is most of the advancement, is hard to swallow.

I get was Jose is saying about basically rotating out your bike every 3 years. But even for the avid rider that becomes an expensive proposition, especially with the continual changes and looking at buying complete builds. I'm a picky guy...more

Dude, please. Skis are like 500 bucks if you don't just walk into Shifty Lou's full retail shop in December.

Not even close to the same universe. Bindings about 200 bucks (and of course you can move them between skis, as well as the boots). And umm psssst: (bikes aren't motorized vehicles, they should be cheaper). I mean I can get a sweet 450f dirt bike for what All mountain bikes across the entire price range cost (which is $10,000).

When you've never preloaded suspension in your life, then yes: damping is just so your full suspension bike 'pedals like a hardtail™' Because that's what everyone wants right? A suspension bike that acts like a hardtail on the way up and then a cadillac on the way down, one you can just sit there and do absolutely nothing on. Where these myths came from I'll never understand.

Steve Wentz asks the best questions.

Quinton is such a badass. Needs way more coverage for the amount of work, alcohol, and just obviously geniune passion for DH he brings to this little corner of sports. Thanks spomes!!
