1. Vibes 2. So.....less action, more fluff? 3. I'm assuming you weren't around in the freecaster days. But there's more that happens during race runs than just one person wins. It's good to see the "bottom" of the field because it gives perspective on ... more »

Their added content sucks. They used to show the field. Now they describe what a dh track is for 20 minutes. I don't trust 'em. If that money went towards whiskey for Robb warner........ I'd pay jeff brines to type less on the internet.

How come I just clicked on a link that said "did the uci just ban 29ers" that then that takes me to a post that says "we're pretty confident the UCI didn't just ban 29ers from all MTB competitions," There's just not enough clickbait bullshit on the interweb ... more »

So how's that bronson leverage curve compared to the nomad? Moving away from the 'hammock' was kind of the point of that lower shock mount link, right?

Yep. Love'em. But for the love of god please figure out how to equalize the audio. I'm constantly turning the volume up and down to keep up with 'mumbles in the background that are an actual part of the conversation' and 'why is that person yelling at ... more »

Talking about shimano without mentioning the leaking pistons that eventually happens to all of them, every single model is only part of the picture. It's a key component to why those things have to be pumped up. They will always eventually get air in them though that mechanism. Sometimes it's within a week of being new, sometimes two years. But they all do it.

Smuggler refers to grape smuggler which refers to testicles. Therefore Smuggler. Because testicles.

I'm probably the only person you know who regularly pushes up portal to come back down it multiple times in a row. Love it. I wanted to hear the bike sounds and what a short travel pivot sounds like when it cries. For science.

Unfortunately the gimbal is in for repair. Turns out they're only up for about six months of use on rough trails, so there's no footage of this descent. It's chunky. The lower portion best described by Nate Hills as "pure violence." You'd love it.

Shades are Smith Attack...more

Dear bike companies: Don't put out press releases for products not available for 4-5 months. Especially when 'end of northern hemisphere riding season' is your release date.

Was that an Alta motors sticker on Laurie Greenland's helmet? As in www.altamotors.co? Sure looked like it.
