I just wish companies would offer decent spec on their ALU rigs. I don't want to buy an aluminum complete only to have to instantly replace breaks, shock and possibly fork as well. Any brand putting LevelT or low end guide brakes on there "enduro" bikes can fuck right off....more

Cody’s a bloody champ, a real genuine fella as I’m sure any of the other so called ‘second rate’ enduro riders are. You, on the other hand, come across as a total douche. No-one’s asking you to care about anyone who isn’t whatever you deem to be first ... more »

Good to see some stuff confirmed on the list. Nina Hoffmann running her own program. I wonder if she wanted it that way?

Sucks to be a team that hasn't posted an announcement yet. The UCI list snuffs heaps of the excitement they could have had.

Todd rides an Intense usually (TM for Intense Factory Racing). My money has been on Cody heading back to Specialized (he used to ride them pre-current status if I remember correctly? Keener spoke highly about him years ago too, so it could be a great ... more »

A pressure regulator costs about... 10 dollars? Maybe 20 if you're splurging, so max 30 for all the fittings and the like. Adjust it using a gauge to the desired pressure and voila, you're done.

Yeah, not as comfortable since it doesn't have presets and a digital display, but cmon... 750...more

Also worth mentioning is the lever doesn’t need to be through it’s entire reach to activate the post. A small and comfortable amount is enough to get her riled up!

Just installed my OneUp 210mm a few weeks ago, & largely agree w/ Vital: it's pretty darn close to perfect. A couple caveats: disagreement on lever ergonomics: I've tried most of the long-armed lever designs (e.g. RaceFace, PNW...) that mimic the long throw of a SRAM...more

I tried standing closer to the Canadian border with my phone to get on Rogers to tap into Redbull.com. No dice.VPN for me.

The strategy UCI used is a classic price discrimination, you should not feel guilty about not paying, it's free in the rest of the world.

A lot of people only ride in the summer, so if you ask how much they ride every week they are going to tell you something like this... 4 times per week (in July-August). You should ask how many miles they do every year and which bike are they using.... 1K miles with...more
