Aluminum oxidizes when paired with carbon...best to stay away from alu nips if you have sweet carbon rims.

Don't go chasing waterfalls, Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you're used to...is now stuck in my head..thanks, NSMB!

The True Story of Pulp Traction - Feb. 15, 2018, 3:14 p.m.

I was lucky enough to see a screening of The Moment in Sooke a month or so ago and I swear I remembered watching Pulp Traction back in the day, even remember the cover...so awesome! Then Stumpy said it was not released and I was a bit perplexed...maybe my memory is going! But this explains it...whew...

Darcy has made an awesome movie....everyone should go see it! Thoroughly entertaining.

It's just mountain biking, super dorky sport...it's not you, it's all of us!

Flat Pedal Facts - Jan. 11, 2018, 11:04 a.m.

I started with the old suntour pedals with specialized cages and straps, then went on clipless as soon as they came out. I moved to Canada in the 90's and the tech and stunts up here were scary as hell in clips. Nothing like being up on a skinny and one of your wheels slips off and you are clipped in...good times. Once I went to flat's my confidence on these trail features went way up! A few years back I decided that since these trail features have all but disappeared I would go back to clipless...and I liked it. I had a bad crash that messed up my ankle so went back to flats as the shoes are way more comfortable and have not looked back. It's the same with wheelsize...pick your favourite and be a dick about it!

A MTB clubhouse would be awesome, a long time dream of mine too!

27 Winter Riding Tips (Winter is Here!)* - Nov. 15, 2017, 8:53 a.m.

Merino wool keeps me happy all winter! Only during the coldest rides to I have to wear more than a merino base layer and my normal riding jersey. I do love living on the Island!

Conor is out too. Took a knock to the head in a big digger in practice. On his instagram, he says that his balance is not at %100 and his head is sore....good call on his part IMO.

Want a 29" 2.5 tough, high grip option!

Cairns World Championships - Timed Training Results - Sept. 7, 2017, 9:19 p.m.

I didn't think it was going to be shown in Canada...I hope that other site it's wrong.

Matt Dennison x Micayla Gatto Win Dirt Diaries - Aug. 17, 2017, 10:01 a.m.

This is one of my favourite things on the Internet right now. I have watched it far too many times...just awesome!

ARRIVED: 2018 Marin Wolf Ridge - Aug. 1, 2017, 4:11 p.m.

With having such long legs, low seat tubes kill me....I need a very long ST and then I still have a ton of seat post showing. in my XL Banshee Prime I could probably go with a 8" dropper and still have room.

Can't wait to hear how it fares long term, especially after it starts getting nasty again. One of my worries for this bike is how that slider near the BB will fare in the long term...and the flexibility of the frame. This one is high on my want list!

Rider's Throat Apparently Sliced by Barbed Wire Across Trail - July 10, 2017, 12:29 p.m.

They were able to clean up the barbed wire, but not take his bike out? Not...fishy...at...all...

Going to Wide Bars (and back again) - June 29, 2017, 4:13 p.m.

800 I find a bit wide to feel comfortable on the tight trails on the island, I went down to 780 and I love it!

Why Eagle Matters - June 6, 2017, 2:42 p.m.

Been running the SunRace 11-36 for a few months now....shifts better than my XT with Wolftooth 42t with no odd gaps!
