Highway 1 / Lower Lynn Improvements - Public Info Sessions

The whole of the North Shore is overcapacity regardless of the bridges. It's fucked.

Spesh Hillbilly grid trail tire

I have them on the 120mm 29". I think they could do with more volume to be honest. As could most Specialized listed 2.3's. That said I rode them in the icy snow the other week and it could have been dry. Ridiculous grip but they just feel a little spindly as they're so tall relative to the width.

new Star Wars trailer.

If the soundtrack was by Williams I think it would have bettered Empire for me.

Oh and the deliberately multicultural cast was a bit obvious but still, great entertainment.

This is nifty

Not bad. There's one that goes inside (or replaces) a wheel axle too.

Nothing on the Specialized SWAT frame storage of course but that takes real innovation :)

Look at this forum

Angry Cam rules.

Most of the stuff written on here (apart from the random political stuff that's popped up since the CMHC thing) is still 10x better than the uninformed, regurgitated marketing shite on Pinkbike etc. Especially in the Gear and NBR sub forums.

Ideal north shore do it all bike

2017 E29 or Stumpy 29 with a spare set of 650b+ wheels with 2.8" tyres.

Two bikes in one. One a rapid trail muncher and the other a gonzo monster truck.

It has got crazily political in here of late. I don't care either way but I hope people are as politically engaged about shit that really matters.

I'm not bothered if we're anonymous or not as everyone already knows I'm a c**t. As long as sites like Reddit remain anonymous so I can spew my anti-Islamic agenda there without risk of being run over by a truck etc I'll be happy.

Why has Pink Starfish been decommissioned?

I can't believe people care about that walking speed, janky old crap.

Dreaming of an aggressive 29er for the North Shore and PNW

Rear tire clearance isn't an issue with modern long reach geo as nobody can get their weight that far back anyway ;)

I've only got a 32" inseam and I rarely buzz the rear tire. Guess I'm not packing much luggage…

The whole 29" is only for larger riders is total BS. The only downside for shorter riders is stack height.

2016 F1 thread.

I think Verstappen said to Brundle that he couldn't get near Hamilton because he was driving the karting (wet) lines.

2016 F1 thread.

Really the only reason Verstappen was able to drive like that is because everyone else, apart from Hamilton, sucked.

They're all lazy and stuck in a rut driving dry lines like they always do with the great wets and high downforce they have. The difference in Brazil was that it was just too wet.

He's made millions in real estate. Always seems drunk.
