    Do not ride on the trails when they are muddy. It ruins the trails for everyone and makes more work for those who have to maintain them.

    I will have to check. They came on the GT standard. They suck for anything beyond gravel trails or short city rides. I eventually got enough confidence to go clipless MTB. My knees and man parts...

    Finding discontinued Rock Shox parts

    I'm trying to find 00.4015.681.010 - Remote and MoCo upgrade for Recon Silver TK. Otherwise, will 11.4015.306.030 along with 11.4308.848.000 or 11.4308.849.000 be the same thing?

    has anyone tried to put a fattie fork and wheel on a 29er frame? Maybe a 2.5r/3.8'f setup?

    the ones on my GT started to do this after a few months. I tried a few things, but ended up getting some ODI clamp on grips.

    Thanks for the tips. By XC, I mean weight and a little bit geometry. In WI, our races do not have excessive climbing or huge long descents. Most of the races are tight singletrack with trees right...

    besides Canfield, who else makes frames with really short chainstays? Does the same principle apply to FS bikes?

    it looks like most of these should handle the same or worse than my current rig, but the reviews tell me otherwise. Since I can not ride any of the smaller brands, what are some important numbers to...
  16. On One / Planet X / Titus sizing and geometry

    Does anyone have a link to the geometry on these frames? I can only find sparse references to various dimensions, but not a complete chart.

    the hubs on my Alex wheels are loud. When in a group most people comment I sound like a chainsaw when I stop pedaling. You could also look into a playing card mounted to your seatstay.
