Amazing story. Welcome back Trent! Makes me wonder how many other stories are there without happy endings, i.e. people that didn't have the courage, support, perseverance or determination to ride again. That's why it's stories like these that should inspire all those that have had to overcome both the physical and emotional trauma to return…
These are the kinds of tragedies that some people never recover from, physically and/or emotionally. Good for you for getting back in the saddle!

To me, the heart of the matter is the matter is the question "Why do you ride?". For some it is purely for recreational purposes. For others it may be a social activity or weight loss or fitness. Some race XC, enduro or other. All are legit IMO and using Strava to record any or…

Interesting topic.  While I always wore gloves I used to think of them more for purposes of grip than for protection.  After having broken a finger and dislocating two others using basic...

commented on Who Got You Into Mountain Biking?
 
I used to do a lot of trail running. But, like most runners, I sustained an injury that prevented me from running but not riding. Saw some guys riding on one of the trails and thought I’d give it a try as opposed to riding on pavement. At the time, I was in excellent “running”…
Love the concept but that’s a hefty price to pay.
Also, very strange to see Yeti in red and not their signature Turquoise color.
Thanks for the review Brian. Would LOVE to have one of these but that’s a lot of coin...
Maybe it’s me but I struggle to think of a need this bike fits that traditional style bikes can adequately address.
Very sorry of his passing.

Bought the 170mm to replace an older (150mm) Fox Xansfer that I loved. I didn't care for the stock remote...

@Cioimo  For someone like yourself who is cautious about getting into the sport I would recommend the following stepwise approach: Start on (very) easy trails.  Find something that is relatively flat without...
