My Bikes

I can totally relate. Just got out of the hospital due to a Thursday night crash. Broken rib punctured lung among other things. I’m going to have to go back to that same steep that I crashed on when fully recovered and do exactly what’s in this video.. I’ll be sure and ride it properly…

5/10's FTW
It all comes from our society's tendency to dehumanize one another. If someone or some group isn't truly human then it's easier to do them harm. No amount of jail time or punishment will change this simple fact. Examples. "Radical muslims", "Mexican rapists", "N____ers", "Ahole Mtbers", "feminazis" "damn homos"etc. any and all of these terms…
Horrid story, a case of a really nice person actually not being able to process that they're being attacked. His self defense response didn't even kick in. Attacks do happen suddenly when they happen sadly. You actually need to be mentally prepared and trained for it. This is exactly the reason why it's a very…
Jeff, I haven't ridden them all of course as the state is quite large. Our State parks are pretty much open to mountain biking. French Creek has a great trail system with...
I can tell you this much from personal experience. I have a ten yo boy who is very gifted in several areas, academically, athletically, and musically. But his one drawback is that he is lazy. Notice I mentioned gifted above not driven or motivated. If left to his own devices he would mostly sit inside…

I'm vivitong some relatives down in Florida right now, sitting by a pool sipping coffee. But honestly I'd rather be right there out in that trail facing the elements, riding a bike, feeling the tires crunch in the snow, the breath inside my lungs, pushing out vapor, muscles staring , sleet stinging my face! Yes!!! Am I crazy? Maybe, but your photo looks incredible to me. Where was it taken?

That's visiting relatives and muscles straining. Damn auto correct.
Sorry I'm from the E-Bikes are the "Spawn of Satan" crowd. Martyn Ashton doesn't ride one. Stacy Kouhat doesn't ride one and those guys are friggin paralyzed. Keep those damn things off...

commented on Over a Beer: Quit Hatin' on Flow Trails
Gnar is a ton of fun and so are flow trails. They both teach different things. Id hate to see the gnar go away though.
Brandon!! Nobody has more style on a bike. Nobody.
The E bike thing needs to stop! These E bikes are going to kill any chance for Mtb Rider's to...

I don't ride recreationally on the local riding spots after it rains at all because I don't want to create...
Is anybody smoother than Brandon? It's pure kinetic poetry to watch this guy ride.
Couldn't agree more! Self sufficiency is key and the athleticism that mtb/ fat biking takes is in a whole different...
This is simply a ridiculous argument. With a movement in congress by one particular political party to "sell off the...
