Awesome article Jeff. It was great meeting you and Adriano this season at the first two BC Cups. Congratulations to both of you on the successful season! That photo of Adriano is crazy.

NSMB Pokes The Bear

Yeah this is where I call BS, at least for AM riding. Shorten the stem and raise the bars, put the rider's weight further back on the climbs, makes the front wheel wander more. The way around that (not counting changing body position) is to steepen the headtube angle, which is something the bike community has pretty much said is unacceptable. Maybe they've addressed this somewhere else in the frame design, but honestly it seems like marketing drivel.

I agree, having the head tube farther forward and a slack head tube angle makes handling on a steep climb worse. Longer chain stays to compensate this? I bet Fabien wouldn't have trouble climbing Stelvio on a Summum with 40's…

Mountain Biking and a Universal Perspective

I dream about rolling my wheels, exploiting gravity, and easing the pace of everyday life. In our world catching up on sleep happens during the work week.


Lindsay Donovan captured this view of the BC interior at sunrise.

Waking up to see something special, capturing it, and sharing it with the people who embody the same passion. The cycle, our community's beating heart. When I see something that makes me want to drop everything and ride it is my role in the cycle to produce something that brings us back to where we belong. Grips, seat, and pedals.


My favourite part of Silver Star, The corners. Short reach for fresh dirt on top of this one.

Discovering new places with new people, on a bike, in all time conditions (minus all time mosquitos). It is my pleasure to be part of an event that brings a group of individuals together to learn, progress, and produce. I will look back on this weekend remembering moments with old friends and new, where I feel like I was a part of something larger than the group. Walking away from this with inspiration to impose creativity somewhere new and explore my own potential within the cycling community. Watering the seeds of something we all share a passion for. Simply, riding bikes down mountains. Chasing the flow and feeding the cycle.

AIRprentice is a melting pot. Each of the "airprenti" has a story that led them to Silverstar this weekend. All of us are reaching for higher ground and this is stepping stone along the way. Win or lose, NSMB.com is helping us gain weight in the sport and remind us why we do what we do. Progression has never felt so natural, and it is proof that the right people make all the difference when pushing personal limits on a bike. I found myself settling into a comfort zone as of late. It was refreshing to expand that comfort zone and bring my own style to a diverse group of people who are keen to push each other on bikes.

Summing up a day like today is hard. Wake up, photo shoot, food, bikes, photo shoot, food, bikes, food, games, bikes, and bed. That is what happened to us. Imagine 9 competing riders training down a blind trail, following its builder, surrounded by photographers and videographers, after multiple sessions on some of the best dirt any bike park has to offer. The day seemed infinite. At this point most of us have reached a new level of tired, the saloon played a vital role in keeping us alive. I have not heard many complaints and I am doubtful I ever will. Thanks NSMB.com!!!
