Thanks for the recco, Lacy! Will check it out for my sun loving, Irish skinned, partner in crime

Totally using your "two laps" line. 

Heal up Andrew!!

Max Flat Pedal Grip vs Some Slip – What Are Riders After? - Feb. 23, 2021, 2:28 p.m.

I've been on five ten since I ditched SPDs in 2008.  

My hightop impacts fell apart end of 2019 and they didn't make them any more.. the high trailcross wasn't available.. I tried all the Ride Concepts (kind of a big skate shoe) and landed on Leatt.. but after finally riding the leatt, I'm bummed.. the waffle sole is too firm.. I was moving my feet all day long, on a mellow ride with my kid.. Looks like I'm going back to 510 with the new trailcross mid height version..

Andrew's Gifts For Mountain Bikers - Dec. 1, 2020, 11:32 a.m.

We had a Mac Ride before shotgun came out. I liked that it was super fast to set up to switch between bikes. I used it on a Townie, Nomad and E-commuter. only takes a couple seconds to install. shotgun takes a little more set up. both are good options.

My Battle with Elbows (5 Elbow Pads Back to Back) - Oct. 22, 2020, 2:41 p.m.

Good round up. I understand you can't test everything out there, but the Leatt airflex pro are amazing. Light, breathable and they stay in place. I forget I have them on.

The 12° Fasst Flexx Suspension Handlebar - June 15, 2020, 8:23 p.m.

Fantastic insight, Andrew. Thanks! The intent seemed similar but I haven't ridden them yet

The 12° Fasst Flexx Suspension Handlebar - June 15, 2020, 5:25 p.m.

Andrew, have you tried the OneUp carbon bar with the oval area that's supposed to flex similarly to these? They seem like a similar, lighter, less expensive option.

Heck yeah, Casey! Keep getting after it!

I've heard good things about showers pass from my buddies in Portland.. and man, do they get rain up there..

Sweating The Small Stuff At Crankworx 2019: Part 3 - Aug. 22, 2019, 2:04 p.m.

I'd like to see how the Fasst Flexx rates compared to the One-Up bars with oval profile section for added compliance. One up has been killing it.

Mountain Biking Can't Get Better Than This... - June 24, 2019, 4:32 p.m.

Just hit 49 and been riding MTBs for 30 years.. bikes have been evolving faster than we age, so we are doing more burly riding than we did in our 20's it's amazing.. I'm not ready for an e-bike yet, but when I'm struggling to get out and chase my kid up a hill (I'll be 60 when he hits 14) , they'll be there for me to keep up with him.  Yay Bike Technology! Riding keeps getting better every year.

Wrapping your Ride for Posterity (and resale!) - May 13, 2019, 12:14 p.m.

I'd love to see a video of what it takes to remove it.. Heard of some paint or clear coat lifting if it's not done right... So, what is the recommended process and how much time does it take?

Just ordered one!

Try it at Home - SR Suntour's Fork Demo Program - Jan. 15, 2019, 3:16 p.m.

Wow. That's Amazing!! I've never considered running an SR suntour fork.. gotta say, I'm tempted to try this program out. Would be great to test out one of their forks!

The Cane Creek HELM - Same Fork, New Price - Nov. 5, 2018, 4:20 p.m.

refreshing! since it seems many other costs just keep going up. Would love to try one of these. Bet it's a better match to my CCDB air than my lack-of-adjustments Pike.
