Crankbrothers Eggbeater Pedals - Enhanced Stance - March 11, 2019, 2:33 p.m.

It's been a while since I ran egg beaters, but I remember them having a very vague transition from the end of float to the beginning of release. I guess it doesn't matter I spend most of my time on flats now anyways

I will argue that for lots of markets organic pads are acceptable. What I don't find acceptable are shimano's resin only rotors, I managed to destroy a pair in less than a season

Just Say Hi* - Oct. 19, 2018, 12:49 p.m.

I always try to be very friendly to all the people I see while out on the trails, I mean I'm playing bikes why wouldn't you be cheery. 

When I went on a solo riding trip to Moab I always managed to find a riding just by chatting at the trailhead and being nice to people as they went by. Met a group of doctors from california, and their friends from detroit. Met a nice couple and their australian friend as we goofed around down the enchilada.

Saying hi to people isn't just a nice thing to do, you can meet some rad people that are gonna make you ride more enjoyable.

Fenders For Fall (and Winter) - Sept. 20, 2018, 1:23 p.m.

I actually had an issue with the Chainsaw fender on a boost Lyrick. The arch was so wide that the fender didn't have enough of a curve to it and the tail could flop a little bit. Hitting rougher trails let the fender hit the tire and it was a bit terrifying

Yeti's SB100 In The Flesh - April 24, 2018, 1:35 p.m.

I managed to destroy a pair of X-talon 190s in 2 months. They were fucking fast for orienteering racing though

Dear Uncle Dave: My Riding Buddy is a Total A-Hole - Feb. 6, 2018, 4:48 p.m.

We do currently split the group, into a fast group and a more chill group, but dealing with larger groups is still tough to organise. We've had issue with riders not calling features on trails, or riders riding features blind crashing. It's just problems with keeping large groups with lots of new people to run smoothly

Dear Uncle Dave: My Riding Buddy is a Total A-Hole - Feb. 6, 2018, 3:22 p.m.

I regularily ride in my shops Thursday night ride, typically with around 20 people and getting as many as 35 people out a couple weeks of the season. It's been a good for business, but its been harder and harder to keep the ride good for all skill levels and safe for everyone involved. The biggest thing we do is have at least 5 shop employees keeping everything organized on each ride. I can't imagine why anyone would want to travel as a group of 25

Be Bicycle Santa - Andrew's List - Dec. 18, 2017, 4:50 p.m.

Are those packs really warm? There is quite a lot of strap across the chest, and I'd imagine they'd be snug to your back. I'm trying to find a pack thats good for bike park days that isn't too hot but also stays put
