It's a matter of privilege. If you're part of the privileged group, you won't notice it.

What is it that you don't get about listening to others' feelings and opinions about things and taking them to heart? It's childish. Schoolyard bullies think its fun to push other kids on the ground, but we teach them not to because it hurts others. We don't say, "It's ridiculous...more

How is dropping the term going to hurt you? Its use hurts others, and it's not up to you to declare that it doesn't. Clearly, you just wish your viewpoint to be privileged over those of marginalized people. And yes, they are marginalized; the continued skepticism towards the wishes...more

I'd recommend the specialized any day. If you were looking at the e bike version of the trance it would be a harder call. Giants "stance" line is their super low end. That means it has "flex point" suspension and very dated geometry. Flex point suspension ... more »

DMR Bolt, Storm Born

Very sick bike! I was looking for a similar bike and ended up with a Rotec Revert, but the Bolt was my frontrunner before. Steel is real! Love it.

Did you ride in cold weather? I've seen the issue a few times, it could be what Ryan mentioned above, but two of my customers had it happen due to weather. Both went out in 32-40 deg weather. The first time it happened I called RS and they said their ... more »

I commuted on a dirt jumper for like 3 years in college. Started on K-rads. They are okay, but that's the best I can describe them. Okay. The most durable tire I'm aware of that you mentioned is the hookworm, but they'll add some weight. They are like ... more »

I've got a 2019 stumpy short travel 29, put some heavy wheels and a cane creek helm at 140mm up front. Sitting at a 66 degree HA. It shreds. The suspension kinematics aren't technically the best, but I hopped on the bike and felt at home instantly. I'm ... more »

One of my favorite trails here in Colorado is called "nice kitty" because of all the big cats they saw while building the trail system. When I moved out and saw stuff like that I read up on what to do when you encounter different wildlife. I also carry ... more »

I slap my ears a lot.

Added reply in a thread Three-Quarter Lids: Gimmick or Cool? 10/2/2019 11:44 PM

It's a preference thing. I like 3/4. I like having the back of my head and ears covered. I'm an ear slapper when I crash and my switchblades (never run the chin bar on them) have saved my ears a few times. Why not feel as safe as I wanna when riding ... more »

Added reply in a thread Intense Tazer vs Spec. Turbo Levo...??? 5/25/2019 12:02 AM

The other thing to think about, I'm sure intense is great with service, but working for specialized dealers these last few years they have been exceptional. I haven't had to work on their ebikes much, but when I do it ain't bad. I've done wiring harness ... more »

I can assure you they were NOT paid for this, in fact Cam paid to have it filmed properly out of his own pocket. Trek would slap a fat logo on this if they were paid you dumbass. Maybe their dad didn't ride bikes with them when they were younger because they mostly rode...more

Based on Ray George (who was recently picked up by Hyper) commenting "I wonder" on TVS's post I'd guess he'll be joining his brother on Hyper.
