Dear Uncle Dave: What happened to "ride don't slide"? - Feb. 27, 2019, 7:37 a.m.

My fave is vids of the so called sponsored guys roosting our fave loamers.

Douche factor to 11.

Rocky Mountain Growler 40 - FIRST IMPRESSIONS - Feb. 15, 2019, 8:52 a.m.

Looks like for the price it's a good buy. Just needs a couple things swapped.

It's the same colour as my old Rocky Oxygen. Nice throwback.

Good honest review Andrew.

Never looks as steep on the helmet cams as it actually is. The 8 min mark puts it into perspective... Bike!

When I say get my hands on it, I mean trying it on before I buy it. Have a pretty big love hate relationship relationship with CRC. Got dinged pretty bad by customs last time I ordered, there is endless threads on this site as you know. If It doesn't fit and I have to send it back who covers the duty charges? It's just too much hassle ordering outside Canada. Plus I try to support my LBS's they have always been really good to me.

Anyways, good review, maybe one day someone will seriously try to carry this companies stuff, it looks great. It's just strange that they have you reviewing and promoting something that is hard to get, that's all.

Great review. Too bad it's for a company that it's next to impossible to find a shop that actually carries it here in BC. Would love one of their helmets with the removable chin bar but wanna try one on before I purchase, same with shorts. Tried contacting the company that reps them, they were really no help.  So have to say I don't know what the story is with this company. Advertising stuff you cant actually get your hands on.

Nice review, how would you rate it against a lyrik and a pike?

If You Can't Ride From Home, Ride From Somewhere - Oct. 30, 2018, 5:14 p.m.

Same, the parks guys even fixed up the trail on the south entrance, off the power lines... Nice easy spin to Breamar from home is great. When I take my 8 year old trail dog I drive, he doesn't have the range he used to.

Uncle Dave Thinks You Should Vote - Oct. 17, 2018, 8:55 a.m.

A wave tank like Kelly Slater's  surf ranch on the North Shore. That would win the election for sure.

Ya that was pure gold.

Dear Uncle Dave: My Roadtrips have become Petty Arguments Disguised as Vacations - Oct. 3, 2018, 1:59 p.m.

It would be a to prove a point. Also make sure they have a limo driver licence, insurance, pst, gst numbers etc.  Since they are charging fees on top of fuel I guess they are a business all of a sudden? I have never seen this in person, these people actually exist?

That has to be one of the most messed up letters. I would never hang out with people like that. The long road trips we all just split gas, take turns filling the tank.

Squamish/Whistler trips take turns or buy lunch and beers, it all evens out in the long run. If someone wanted to charge me for wear and tear on the car, I would demand an invoice then I would edit them out of my life pretty fast.

You Can't Kill A Roach - A Tribute to Ingrid Doerr - Sept. 25, 2018, 11:18 a.m.

A super positive person. Have to say I am quite shocked that she is gone after seeing her not long ago.

Such a loss. RIP

Good read thx Metacomet.

Really comes down to that it has a motor, its motorized. This whole thing is bizzarre how the bike industry thinks different.
