    This has happened to me before. Luckily it didn't sting me in the head. Unfortunately it managed to get down my collar and sting me on the back. Oh well.

    I had an SF02 and it was a great bike. Excellent efficiency and low weight for a 120mm bike. It did have a somewhat tall head tube though. I would chose it over the Camber any day. The line is a...

    Are you looking at the 26 inch versions or the 29er versions of those bikes?

    I don't have my first mountain bike anymore (a 1998 rigid Rockhopper) but I do have my second mountain bike. Its a still very fast Tomac Buckshot scandium hardtail. I'll never sell it.

    Sounds like a good deal on a bike with a very effective suspension design. The one drawback I've found with the current generation of DB bikes is the weight. My Mission 4 was a pig and so is my...

    This is correct. If you start top down, eventually your hands will pull up the edges of the tape, meaning you have to re-tape the bar prematurely.

    There are some pretty good ideas here. Don't forget, you can just hold the spoke with a pair of pliers.

    Some times yes, sometimes no. I've had high end brakes that squeaked, and cheap ones that didn't. Add in water and dust, and you might or might not get squeaking.

    I had a 2009 Rize 3 with a Lefty. Ultimately it was a pretty disappointing bike for me. The weight was low and the travel was high. The biggest problem was the front end on the bike. Moderate to...

    The problem is making a bike last the duration of the race under horrible conditions. Having good legs, then being taken out of the race because of mechanicals really sucks.
