TMac Sends Biggest Air of Rampage 2015 - Oct. 15, 2015, 2:08 p.m.

I like Tyler as a rider. Seems to have a great attitude. He never seems cocky or too cool in his interviews. Wish him the best in the contest!

When Air Canada Destroys Your Bike - June 18, 2015, 3:03 p.m.

I'm a proud Canadian and choose to travel a lot (over a dozen flights a year) with Air Canada for the majority of my domestic and international flights. I have always tried to defend you as a corporation when people criticize you for the quality of your service. Friends of mine are pilots for you and I believe that Air Canada is a top carrier in terms of aviation safety. But this example and my past experiences with you with regards to canceled flights, broken luggage, broken surf boards, mishandled pets on planes makes me ashamed that you are our national carrier at times. In the past years, you as a national carrier have been losing out to other smaller carriers. Not because their flights are cheaper, but because they simply treat customers better. They treat my dog better when we travel, they treat my luggage better, they treat me as a customer better. Please give us something to be proud of again in you.

The Future of Marzocchi - April 24, 2015, 9:13 a.m.

Bump. I recently made the switch back to Marzocchi from Fox and was blown away by how good the suspension is. Comparable weight to RS Pikes, but with 35 mm stanchions and lower maintenance issues it's a win over both.

Fox Q36R Quick Release - Feb. 9, 2015, 10:36 p.m.

I had one not too long ago. missed the landing on a drop I was a bit nose heavy on. Landed it but got a flat in the front. Happens.

Shimano M200 MTB Shoe - Nov. 4, 2014, 2:18 p.m.

I just bought a pair of these. I find that the inside heel "feels" loose when I'm walking, but the shoe is sucked onto my foot and solid while I'm riding. I've gotten out of the seat on spur of the moment hammers up the hill and felt like the pedal, foot, and shoe were all there together. My only thought is that the extra flap of material just on the inside may not "cup" the heel as snugly making it feel a bit more loose, otherwise it could just be the extra fabric there loosely rubbing against the inside of my ankle while I walk giving me the perception of a loose heel, although the outside heel is still snug feeling. Did you have a similar experience Pete?

Time Capsule: Shaun Palmer’s 1996 Intense M1 - May 29, 2014, 9:57 a.m.

Holy crap. Those handlebars are still on my old mountain bike sitting in my parent's basement. Classic!

Banshee Rune Going HUGE - May 12, 2014, 12:52 p.m.

Sooo….I'm looking at a new bike frame. I'm split between the rune and spitfire. currently am riding a Slayer. was thinking about something that pedaled a bit easier but could still shred like the Slayer. Rune is basically the same as a Slayer as far as I can tell, but if I got a Spitfire, would I be able to put it through its paces or would it be too much for a frame like the spitfire to take repeated drops, rough riding etc.

Return of the Claw - April 7, 2014, 1:10 p.m.

Thanks for this. I'm recovering from my second knee surgery now. Looking ahead and the disappointment that comes with missing a whole summer of riding before I'm cleared to do any impact activities again makes me sad. but knowing the Claw has gone through the same makes it a bearable process to go through. Cheers.

MTB BASE Jump Goes Wrong - Jan. 2, 2014, 12:39 p.m.

Any of you that know anything about base jumping, was there something he could have done to make this work? was it just a flawed calculation to begin with?
