Liked a comment on the item ROMAIN PAULHAN: ONE-TRACK MIND 4/8/2020 8:24 PM

When the last day of Trans Cascadia was canceled due to snow, Romain and a few others still wanted to ride. I was struck by his otherworldly bike handling, his genuine excitement to ride, and his ability to do a surprise ~20 mile ride in the snow with no supplies but a smile and a pocket brimming with stoke....more

Glad to hear the GG guys are weathering the storm okay, but this came off as a bit too promotional to me in such a difficult time. I couldn’t listen to the entire thing. I don’t know if I’m overly sensitive because of the situation, but the tone seemed inappropriate given the...more

Wow, I really just had to stop listening. I’ve never heard so much raw opinion, covered up with “just my personal opinion here”! Seriously, does nobody get that the “sport” of mountain biking is also just something people do for fun? It’s not dumbing things down, it’s...more

JD and his lil Bro were iconic local kids and there were a lot of them, that many of us tried to nurture and give wings in this savage sport...but this industry can be brutal, miss a beat/result and often you're done. It's a shame we let go of talent before it's prime. Looking forward to this one, a...more

Thanks! The Exo+ is much much better for everyday trail use. I ran the DH and DD for a while, this is much more pedal able. May not be the fastest rolling but I do enjoy the bite. No inserts, I normally run between 25-30PSI.

Loved this podcast, being from the other side of the Atlantic I’d never heard of this dude but had seen a vid of the crash years ago, by the end of the podcast I loved this guy like a friend, very endearing genuine guy and inspirational. I was sad when the podcast ended. I love these podcasts,...more

Looks like a great dry/hard condition tire, but please don't ever change my DHFs (without making them still available).

This might be the most honest article from a media powerhouse I've ever read. Well said Brandon.

I attended Rampage this year. From every aspect you could tell that Red Bull was putting their own interests first. As a worker, a spectator, and from talking to the riders and team support, there were complaints from every end. Aside from the utter...more
