Still rocling my Chromag Wideangle for the 2020 season. 160mm Pike, 36mm rims with 2.6 Minion DHF.  Super fun bike. I just rode it and left my fully at home and I have really picked up the pace. So fun to push the limits.

That's a nice rig, what year is that?  Looks like pretty modern geo with the steep seat tube angle?

2018 Wideangle. Modern geo but I wish the HT angle was more slack.

Angleset would work on that to slacken the front end?

I have a -2 degree headset from Works Components on my ‘18 WideAngle. Made an already fun bike an awesome bike. Slackened the head angle, steepened the seat angle. 

I put on a 50mm stem in place of the 40mm to counter the slightly shorter top tube length because of it.

Looking for the same thing for my wide angle. Which headset did you get exactly? The works site is confusing

Thx

Re: BC/PNW MTB road trip recommendations

It has a couple sketchy sections. Some old rotten stunts. But for the most part old school single track. I’m on devinci Troy. No problems

Re: BC/PNW MTB road trip recommendations

Kal park a must. Keep climbing from stone free up Pali gap and come down big ed.

I go out there a couple times a year. In laws are in Vernon. Pali gap could be considered(hate this word) epic. Don’t realize the terrain right behind Vernon. Can’t see it from the lake.

Nod for Ellison as well

Re: Which knee pads are you guys using?

Posted by: Kenny

I have ixs flow Hans rey (I think the only difference from normal flow is the grey color but not sure). 

They stay up well and I generally forget I even have them on. I was right between L and XL, I bought L and am glad I did. When I first out them on I was sure they were too small, but after a few rides they were perfect. Have had a few awkward low speed crashes riding over features that would have resulted in a limp and bruised up knees for sure and they have done a great job. Also one high speed front wheel slide out that would have cheese gratered my knee and shin for sure and worked great. 

I guess I mean to say try to buy whatever size feels a little too small initially. They will break in. 

Sidenote - I bought mine via Amazon and later noticed Dunbar had them in stock for about the same price. Hate it when I do that!

Nailed it on the sizing advice

Re: 2017 WCDH

Blenki confirmed alive. 

Gwinn had a bobble in a stupid spot and lost 3 of his 4 pulled from somewhere seconds. 

Hart met the wooded section. Otb 

Was a great race. How Gutierrez made up he time on the lower section was unreal

Good on Tracey Hannah! Sucks for Rachel. But it is good to see some different faces on the podium. 

Wtf with this one hour gap between men's and women's?

I don't give a flying fuck what size my wheel size is.  I will have fun regardless. 

I will go faster the more effort I put into learning how to ride better.

I would love to know how everyone here seems to know how much faster they are going to be on bikes that aren't for sale yet.

My ability to climb will go up if I buy an e-bike.  (Saw one at the WBP today)

I now understand a large number of people here are fucking thrilled to be living a real life Zeno's Paradox.

If you complain about the flowification of trails and welcome this, you aren't very smart.

To sum up, there is some wicked cognitive dissonance or terrible critical thinking going on here.

You sure get worked up over this. F this f that! 

Lol

Agreed. Was good to see Wallace podium. That was it though. I realize that's racing, but that is not the way these guys want to win. I would like to see a delay of some sort Put in place by the Uci when the weather gets shitty. It was two separate races yesterday!

i imagine the redbull live broadcast schedule eliminates any timing flexibility.

It's too bad if the race is dictated by red bull. I love watching but would rather see a fair race. Sure racing is racing. But when conditions deteriorate like that so quickly and to such an extreme. Ratings should be put on hold. The racers safety and best interest should be forefront.

Yeah a little rain no big deal. Windy ok. That was pretty bad. Some tracks can take the rain others can't. Cairns and champery are good examples of other tracks that shouldn't be rac d in the rain.
