Miranda and Katrina’s Bodacious Journey - March 12, 2014, 10:27 p.m.

Bucket list.

I want skinwalls for all my bikes. And I remember when I wanted to ditch my skinwalls for blackwalls.

Oh man that is badass. Rheeder has great smooth style. Some huge moves. And it's cool to know a few of those spots - which helps me appreciate how insane the riding is.

Dan Barham is a Boss - Feb. 16, 2014, 11:16 p.m.

Agree on the Laphroaig except with those stacks, ought to be the 25 year.

Weekend Warmup - Feb. 15, 2014, 11:35 a.m.

Would 16.6″ chainstays allow me to manual like Nico Vink?

The Chromag Pilgrimage - Feb. 12, 2014, 9:24 p.m.

Sweet, I was the Hope hub tone-check guy. Hahah

The Next World Champion - Jan. 30, 2014, 10:15 p.m.

This makes me want to have an A-Line Zoobomb. That would be amazing.

2014 Giant Trance Advanced SX 27.5 - Jan. 15, 2014, 11:51 a.m.

Nice spec. The 2-bolt clamp sure does seem dumb! A common problem with droppers is over-torquing of the collar bolt, which binds up the stanchion. The two bolts may spread the load over a larger area better, though it looks easy to over-torque still.

Road Bike Party 2 - Dec. 10, 2013, 12:19 p.m.

Holy smokes. That was epic. I shy away from using the word epic usually, because I was saving it for this video.

10 of the Best Mountain Bike Gifts - Nov. 27, 2013, noon

One more: That 3M clear protective tape. Too lazy to buy it myself, but would totally stick it on my bike if I had it.

A new chain could be a good one too, as long as the buyer knows the drivetrain basics about the bike it's for!

PS: Yay, one of my photos!

Top 5 Bike Mods Under $100 - Nov. 20, 2013, 11:08 p.m.

Spending thousands on a bike and not spending a few extra bucks to get the suspension dialed (by the gentleman above me) is something I would never do again. Spending all that money on the technology is pointless if it's not been optimized for you. I would recommend every rider see Arthur at least once - from there at least you have a baseline understanding.

I agree with everything on the list. There are only a couple front tires I feel comfortable running - rear tire I barely care about. Many bikes come with too-narrow bars, and I don't know how we rode those for all those years. My ideal width tends to be around 760mm for everything.

Andreu Lacondeguy’s Rampage Run - Nov. 7, 2013, 11:45 a.m.

This was my favourite run as a whole. Bummed it didn't make podium. The top 3 had iconic features, which was all Andreu was missing.

Kyle Strait’s Winning Rampage POV - Nov. 4, 2013, 8:20 p.m.

Strait down the middle indeed! That was over quick. I'm sure like everyone else I was killing my neck trying to get the camera to look further ahead.

Honestly that was a 3rd or 4th place run for me (even with a perfectly aimed POV) when compared to the other lines… but that's what the internet's for, right? Disagreement…

Rampage Top 3 Runs - Oct. 15, 2013, 9:31 p.m.

While I think those are all podium runs and I can't fault the judging, I really wish Andreu Lacondeguy was on the podium with his run. The speed up top and the hugeness of that superman deserved podium, bigtime.
