Demystifying Fork Offset and Trail - Feb. 9, 2017, 8:13 a.m.

I find it hard to trust him, to be perfectly honest that suspension action got better by just mounting uppers with less offset. How come? If we focus solely on suspension action can get better if you adjust the head angle accordingly to the speed you ride, as the angle of most forces coming at the bike should match the head angle as closely as possible. Then the shorter the offset of the wheel axle to the plane of sliders, the smoother it will be, since the fork would work best if the axle was in line with sliders - That would mean some humongous CSU assembly. He got the fork serviced and setup properly, that's my guess… manufacturers increase offset because it allows for relatively good handling at a wider range of speeds. If you do it just with head angle with smaller offsets you have to be more precise whether you are bombing down Garbanzo or climbing a tight singletrack. Can't have both when you can't climb well. And most people can't since they are told to spin 90RPM out of the saddle at all times because some science.

Thank you guys for a warm welcome. Wow Pete, didn't know I can post pictures directly. That opens a sea of possibilities…

Perhaps I should move here and comment using hand drawings only. Especially that I deeply enjoy Uncle Dave's articles. He seems a bit like a functioning sociopath and I tend to stick to such people…

Oh… I heard that discussion before…

Which chamois cream do you use then?

You Should Ride a Rigid Fork - Feb. 1, 2017, 1:44 p.m.

One day I swapped a 120mm suspension fork for a rigid fork on my modern aggro HT bag of self esteem boosting bollocks in order to ride trails that I will call technical in order to further boost my self esteem. Mybe the issue were the flat pedals and it felt like… it did not feel cool. Not by a tiniest bit. Lord knows I tried to enjoy these three rides with a rigid fork. Everytime a smoother bit of trail popped up I could try to enjoy it, but then I rode into a bunch of roots and all I could think was the bizarre second name of a character from South park called Ms. Chokesondick. Weeee, ouh, oh ah uuh ooh khleee… Then I even rode Fatbike with a rigid for and no, no,no, no. Please grow a beard, wear flanel shirt on top of TLD Moto shorts and sip single origin organic coffee from stainless steel bottle with ecological bamboo cover - please do. Don't tell people that they SHOULD try it though. Why don't you try butt sex then? Maybe you are missing something in your life 😉

Freaking cool bike! I love this thing about not mentioning Enduro. A smart move… yet… it exposes how ridiculous we are and unaware of our own motives. Why? Because people haaaate trends and fashions soooo much. And that makes the devil smile. Because the triendiest and most fashionable thing in Mountain Biking these days is… laughing at Enduro and whining everytime some company mentions it. No.. Enduro wasn't created by the industry, it was a big unlabeled bag of grey matter of people who rode bicycles in off road terrain, who sucked at racing. No it had nothing to do with sucking at XC or DH. It had to do with sucking at racing, sucking at riding. But since Enduro became a big sport they got exposed. They sucked at Enduro racing. Because what else than racing points whether you can or cannot ride a bike? In 2003 they would have called themselves Freeriders. Freeride competitons went off, so by 2010 they were calling themselves Enduro riders. Now they ride Trail bikes… marketing only exploits the weakness and vanity. You won't grow such a huge tree with golden apples like Enduro out of nothing… Funny, humans are funny.

I meant that I don't really understand why put the NOTE about F-Bomb 🙂

Do We Need Man-Specific Bikes? - Jan. 21, 2017, 10:29 a.m.

No no no, you have no control over whom you can offend and by what part of your message. And when touching such hot subject you surely will offend someone. So you may as well do it on purpose 😀 It seemed light hearted to me but subject is heavy (and the reason it is heavy is the war reports from 10% of society being narrow minded pricks, fighting with 10% of hormonally imbalanced, power seeking social justice warriors - wankers vs white knights. And don't ask me which is worse, because I can't decide…). Now… can we please bring back Tranz-X to bring even more gender diversity to MTB table?

Some people can get offended by anything. It means they should be openly offended on a regular basis. The trick is to write an article or draw a picture in a way so it upsets the people you'd like to see upset. In this way you get double pleasure. Affirmation from people you'd appreciate and then there's Schaden Freude… you did very well.

Ask Uncle Dave – Contractual Obligations - Jan. 20, 2017, 8:27 a.m.

Thank you Uncle Dave. Every time I see a press release from a Team presenting it's new riders, I feel the icy, terrifying, life draining, gaze of the void. Then I read the comments that X rider should never have left Y team and other commenter says that rider Z is a dick and I swear if I sat in oval office at that time of reading it, I would press then red button. The only thing that takes me away from the event horizon of the void is Slayer. When existence stops making sense, when you can't differentiate numbness from pain and anger - listen to Slayer. To paraphrase their greatest fan: "The band… they brought so much meaning to people, so much aggression, so much pleasure, so much hatred, so much blood, so much tears, so much wisdom… this band brought it… it's very serious."

A Trigger Warning… really? Fkng really NSMB? Quite frankly it ruined watching of the video to me… With excitement I waited to hear a three letter F word… it would bring social justice warriors that I could senselessly beat down with my comments.
