Ha! Yes! On the mens side all I could find for stand-out was neon or a very moto-crossy look. I bet there are some surf shorts with cool patterns cut for men that might work for mountain biking :)

Wow! I love everything about the film. So much to take in, beside featuring this talented young rider the visual transitions during the trail riding really kept me intrigued!
Good point! I am not aware of any mtb brands that offer their shoes in different widths, surely this must be frustrating for a lot of folks esp if you're on the wider side. Sorry I overlooked this as I have a fairly normal width foot, some shoes felt slightly more roomy than others. Without…
Hi! When a mtb shoe is described as not stiff, usually the sole is made of a softer rubber allowing it to flex. A shoe that is not very stiff or very flexible can fold up like a taco (like you could do with most running shoes). If you're riding with a shoe that has…

Yes to bright colors! Of course, if you're doing your homework and picking the right bike then you're stuck with that color. Darn, I got stuck with hot pink ;) I would also...
Ha! Jamis Durango was my first mtb too - in the late 90s ;) And, I totally upgraded to the Judy XC as well! Remember Judy butter? Loved that old steel bike!

Um... I'm definitely siding with my boys from ATL on this one! I will forever imagine Outkast every time I have to yield now. maybe I'll even sing Heeeyyy-yield instead of Hey ya ;)

Bummer! What is your inseam? You might consider a Pivot 5.5, I think most XS Pivot bikes go all the way down to 27-ish inch standover. And Liv frames incorporate some of the "traditional" womens bike design where the top tube eventually almost flattens out where you stand, although I've found their bikes to have…
Sweet ride, Jenny! Keep ridin and racin like a girl, love it!

Very interesting --and accurate!-- application to mountain biking here. I have noticed times when I'm on a new trail or trying a technical section for the first time, when someone over-explains what is coming up or the best way to do it, I'm more likely to go too slow and crash or not make it…
