Not so easy on mobile. The selector doesn't scale so the photo icon is off to the right and you have to go fishing for it. This is on Android / Firefox,...
The article doesn't say what rim, and width the tire was mounted onto. I was a total e13 fanboy until I got a bike with 35mm internal rim widths. The 2.35 tire was just too square when mounted. E13 needs to come out with a 2.5 to match Maxxis' wide trail tires.
 
My friend who works in software says as we walked away "That was like as if Jobs and Wozniak were giving tours at the computer history museum"
 
I've driven past, ridden past the museum a bunch of times, and yesterday not feeling totally wiped after a loop of Tamarancho I dragged my friend in with me. Both Charlie Kelly, and Joe Breeze were there giving personalized tours. I've listened to the ST podcasts about these pioneers, and read many articles, but my…
 
I recommend downloading several apps for finding trails. Singletracks has an app Trail Forks MTB project. They're all good for different reasons. The MTBR Norcal forum is a very active space. There's weekly rides posted for Bay...

commented on Five Ten's New Impact Pro DH Shoe
 
Although I'm not a downhill super shredder the impacts are on my "to get" list once my current set of 5.10's begin to wear thin. I had a toe vs rock moment back in June, and my big toe is still black. $160 is a lot for a shoe. But ohh... man did my toe…
Cursioly what are the parameters that define "best" ? Are XT's the best or just the most common? If I were asked this question I wouldn't be able to answer it because I've only ridden bikes with XTR, XT, or SLX whether mine, borrowed, or rented. XT's come spec' on a lot of bikes because…
Based on this article this is essentially an anti union move. And because Singletracks is anti union this is a good thing. You might want to rethink that approach. I'm sure there's more than a few readers that can afford their carbon fiber shred sleds because of their union jobs. I've worked on several trade…
Of course this article comes out today. I got back from Tahoe yesterday. I rode up TRT from Daggets pass to descend down Sierra Canyon Trail. Pedaling above 7000' feet really kicked my ass, but 11 miles down Sierra was worth it.
