Oakley Sutro Review - Aug. 23, 2021, 4:47 p.m.

I mean if they are good enough for Rossi, they must be good enough for us mere mortals 

But thanks AJ for the review, I was on the fence on ordering them, and just pulled the plug

Riding Near Home This Weekend - April 10, 2020, 10:58 a.m.

It has been annoying here in North Carolina, people are still traveling in from out of state and not keeping distance. I won't say its spurred on but some of the local Pro's have been posting shuttle party pics on social media and group ride photos which just seems irresponsible to legitimize bad behavior to their 10's of thousands of followers. I just think this is going to cause us to loose trail access and possibly worse, lead to the spread the disease.

2020 Santa Cruz Tallboy IV Ridden - Aug. 20, 2019, 5:38 p.m.

And your thoughts compared to the new Ripley? I will go ride both soon, but I would assume the Ripley is a bit more ‘efficient’ and the tall boy a bit more ‘fun’.

Introducing the 2020 Santa Cruz Hightower - July 2, 2019, 6:20 a.m.

Will a Fox X2 fit on this bike or is it too tight like the Bronson? 

Not that I am likely to buy a complete bike, but the lack of Fox/Shimano build kits is disappointing. They don’t list a frame only option on the site, do you know if that is just for the short term?

Completely agree on both points.

The Turbines are great and have taken a bunch of abuse on multiple bikes, I just wish they would round the edges as well.

Glad to see someone else with the front brake lever on the side that god intended it to be on.

I don't know how you can't love the sound of the buzz from i9 hubs.

Race Face Aeffect Cranks: Boxing Above Their Weight - July 16, 2017, 10:12 a.m.

I was riding xt clipless at the time.

I think the arms have been updated since I rode/broke them, previously they were cast and it seems like they are now forged so maybe the new model is a lot better. I have never had an issue, or known of anyone personally having issues with Turbines, that is why I bought them again.

Race Face Aeffect Cranks: Boxing Above Their Weight - July 15, 2017, 9:58 a.m.

My Ripley came with Aeffects on it, I was happy with them until I was booking it down a trail and caught my pedal on the side of a root. It was a big crash, but I didn't think big enough to rip all of the threads out of the crank where the pedal threads in, which it did. I had a few mile walk back to the truck, I've replaced it with Turbines and have crashed way harder without issue, for what it's worth
