Naugles Tacos???

Introducing the Canyon Spectral 125 CF 8 - Feb. 17, 2022, 9:15 a.m.

Thanks for the hint. Solved it on my second word choice, ha!

Cascade Components Forbidden Druid-Nought Link - Dec. 1, 2021, 9:09 a.m.

Another Sentinel V1 / CC link owner here. I had a tough time getting a good feel from the stock link and the CC link solved the biggest issue I was having: choosing between good off the top or not blowing through the travel. Now I have both! I'm about 200 with gear. Very happy with 20mm sag @ +/- 230 psi. 0.4 spacer inside. Before the CC link I was at 16mm sag and up to 270psi.  Almost forgot- DPX2 w/ custom tune based on the CC link.

Pistons & Pivots - Brad Lever's Mountain Goat Fuso 4X4 - Aug. 11, 2021, 10:07 a.m.

"The utilitarian build of the Fuso is brutal and beautiful all the same." 

I had to chuckle when I read this and looked closely at the picture. The switches, gauges and steercolumn stalks are almost identical to those in my Evolution VIII. The graphic on my ACD switch is almost the same as the Differntial lockout switch on the fuso.

Love this series, keep them coming!

Konrad Kaminski's BMW E39 M5 & Forbidden Dreadnought - May 13, 2021, 9:21 p.m.

There's two cars I'd consider sacrificing my Evolution VIII for: E39 M Wagon or Evolution IX Wagon. Love the intersection of mountain bikes and performance cars, please keep these articles coming.  

Beautiful car and bike Konrad, I imagine there's been a lot of hard work and long hours leading up to those rides!

Jon Staples' EXT Equipped Specialized Stumpy Evo - April 7, 2021, 1:12 p.m.

Rad bike and nice write up!

I'm wondering about this:  "Even with the DoubleDown rear tire and 28psi, Jon's been flexing those sidewalls."

Is that a reference to the crisscross pattern visible on the sidewall, or just an observation from the rider?

Thanks for steering me to those stories. Really good stuff and some solid parenting!

I’m liking the high rise bar look!

A bright spot for my pandemic experience has been more time with my 4 year old. Got her an early rider 16” bike for xmas and the transition from balance bike to pedal bike took about 5 mins. That was the highlight of my year!

Like you, I don’t push her, I let her find her groove and she’s loving it (you can’t tell her anything, but that’s a story for a different website, ha!) 

Thanks for the insight you’ve provided about riding with the kid this past year. Getting her some adult elbow pads for her legs today.
