I think the rider in that video is rolling into the switchback section at the very end just before the BP
Does sealant ever actually work? Aside from helping seat my tire I always wind up using a tube to get me home if I do flat.
Things I've noticed:
-no Affliction wearing gangbangers anymore. Is drug dealing now passe with the new generation
-the lightest bike buildoff peaked my interest on here (remember that dude with rhe sub 30 pound aluminum session?) and now its gone. Carbon parts have taken the fun out of tinkering imo.
-Facebook does suck now, all political
-Anyone can be famous with a decent Instagram account and some extra money to buy followers.
-People are rejecting technology (3D Television anyone?). Also Nokia is re-releasing their old 5530 or whatever its called due to demand.
I love my MT5s on my 29er. I weigh 230 pounds right now and they just work. No pumpup, no fading, consistent lever feel. I almost hate talking up these brakes because I feel like I have an advantage and don't want anyone else running them lol.
^ Any shop that has a NRG account can get you one. Will they is an entirely different question.
USWE packs have the huge advantage of set it and forget it harness straps. I run mine as tight as they'll go and just unbuckle for the uphill if I'm feeling restricted. Even unbuckled it moves around less than any other pack.
I had the privilege of seeing NRG's stock on USWE packs and let me tell you its pitiful. Just buy from CRC or direct. Sucks for shops but if their suppliers aren't stocking product then everyones hands are tied.
Sidenote: NRGs Chromag inventory was pitiful when I last checked as well so if a shop can't get you a chromag item I'd take it at face value.
Quote of the day while riding Thornhill:

'Haha nah he just got a Yeti, couldn't be him'
5 min later..
'Oh hey Brad! Sick bike!'
