Unicorn?

Well technically you've got a unicorn. With the addition of skulls, a lot of pink and a company called gnar lube………..I see nothing joke worthy.

Trade Titans: Pete Stace-Smith - Part II Added!

"I swear the average person now spends more on communication than what a really good bike upgrade would cost every year. Sadly, flat screen TVss are probably a bigger competitor to Norco than some bike brands are."

Sad for the industry, good for the trails?

Pet Peeves

Non-biking:
People who give their kids short form names as their full names like Liam, nope that's actually William, Jenny nope Jennifer, lets keeps some proper concepts here.

Under Armour as causal wear on older dudes with guts…. man its too tight just put a hoodie on.

People at work who don't clean the microwave after they dirty it up.

Does anyone like a claimer?

Weight Weenies who shedding be shedding pounds on their self not their bike.

Bike shop employees who call be bro and can't make eye contact: If you want me to spend money try extending the concept of service too me. Make me want to spend money at your store.

What is up with UCI

Bcbud you liked the sportnets coverage? The announcer didn't know any names, pronounced half of them wrong was and didn't seem that knowledgeable of the sport.

He had nothing on Rob Warner that's for sure.

Fork Question

So I've got a pretty good offer on a fork. I've been in need of a new one for quite a while, on my current fork the right stanchion has extreme scratches on it, the offer I'm looking at has stanchions in great shape but needs a compression cartridge, does this seem worthwhile or should I say forget that? Should mention these are both totems.

A member lost to cancer: Eugene Bahia "Khoolhandz"

Sad news, people if they have any riding pics etc could setup a bit of a time capsule for his son.

Images etc that show him as a shredder. A couple pieces of old gear, maybe a smashed derailleur…?

Cancer has many faces, but so does being a rider.

Inspire his kid to pick up where he left off.

First of Condolences to the family, there are not really words we can say.

Your idea is a cool one, that's really just a great idea. Bucket of win.

Caps Bike Store - seriously????

Hey guys interesting subject we've got on our hands.

I honestly feel that's a major dick move on the shop's part, a tool 2 minutes, in front of them? Why not?

One thing is perhaps how you asked, did you come across as humble? Where I've worked in the past it depends on how you ask the person.

However the fact is a shop that prides itself on a community image, failed a member of the community.

Many people have an opinion of this franchise but when it boils down to it the outcome depends on who you're asking and how.

Rocky Forced to Change Slayer Name

How about they call it the verdict or verdick? Or wrong use of litigation?

Or what day of the year is it?

Brian Lopes - 10 questions about 2010

Okay it's been covered, but a man of 40 years in age should know how to type.

Guy is an incredible athlete, and given his age its great to see him staying a professional level.
