    2019 World Champs

    There have been many sharpied DH bikes over the years, don't think they would have stopped him if he really wanted something with more travel and a dual crown.

    ... on top of that he was riding an Enduro bike

    2019 World Champs

    That shocked me too, I used to see him frequently at local races when i was riding as a junior after he switched to downhill. No need for a cliff though as old age should do me in within a few years.

    Shame, I think Mt. Saint Anne would have suited her and she could have done well if she managed to stay on her bike.

    Colorado downhill scene - been 10 years

    Paging the Colorado contigent @stoney @SkaredShtles @Pesqueeb @Full Trucker @Toshi @Nick @6thElement Some of them appear to still own bicycles. Not sure about @TN, but if you need advise on dispensaries or have to schedule a porno shoot in a hurry he's your man.

    Cheap brake dillema m6000 vs m7000

    That was more about my personal brake replacement situation than your predicament, a complete set of MT5s for 147€ is still not bad though. But if you are going to sell what sounds like more of an everyday than a downhill bike, why not just get SLXs or Deores and let someone else's dentist deal...

    Old vs new downhill bikes

    I only sent those because I was under the impression that Sweden would be crazy expensive, but your local prices aren't bad at all (exchange rate works in my favor though): https://happyride.se/annonser/ad.php?id=92741 https://happyride.se/annonser/ad.php?id=92992...

    Old vs new downhill bikes

    ^^ This. You also don't need to go super old, everybody is going so 29" crazy that you can get good deals on 27,5" bikes. Might also be worth checking out the continental used markets, here are just a few examples of recent listings: Glory, Swoop, Strike, Gambler

    This is what's wrong with The Industry™

    Shimano GR9, Vaude Moab Tech or these new Unparallel things maybe?

    Cheap brake dillema m6000 vs m7000

    It's not so bad, a complete set of MT5s and two SLX levers would cost 212€, a lot less than a set of Cura 4s for instance (295€).

    Cheap brake dillema m6000 vs m7000

    No complaints with my Code RSCs after one year, it'll probably still end in heartbreak eventually. The break-in time was much longer than with Shimanos, but they are plenty powerful now with good modulation. I much prefer Shimano's lever shape however and am open to trying out a Shigura with...

    Random new bike thread

    What a scoop, we managed to snap some pics of a bike being raced in public. That bullshit camo somehow increased my dislike of that brand even more, which is an achievement I suppose.

    Random new bike thread

    Yup, it’s the seat angle that drove me away from Giant, great bikes in most other respects. They may have had some horrendous paintjobs over the years, but my old Trance was the rootbeeriest bike of them all, so I’d cut them some slack. Pinkbike has more pics of the camouflaged new Spec Enduro...

    Quelle fucking surprise. How does someone on suicide watch, who‘s death would be mighty convenient for the rich and powerful, manage to commit suicide? Guess we’ll never know. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/10/nyregion/jeffrey-epstein-suicide.html?action=click&module=Top%20Stories&pgtype=Homepage

    You’re not Snowshoe... Lenzerheide 2019 World Cup

    Annihöllation... 30 seconds on second place and a time good enough to win the senior women’s, albeit in better conditions.

    Already loved the raw alu on the Ransom, nice to see it on the Gambler too:

    You’re not Snowshoe... Lenzerheide 2019 World Cup

    Looks like it's going to be dry today and Friday and maybe some light rain Saturday afternoon, but who can really tell in the mountains. Looks nice and nasty in the wet:
