I went from a Specialized Hard Rock with clipless pedals and it seemed like you could practically twirl the bike any which way but it had 26” rims so going to the...

Mountain Bike Action just did a review of the 2019 Remedy. Edit:  Well, delete that. It was if the 9.9 and you’re looking at the 8.

I  bought a Roscoe 8 a few months ago and it has great control. I’m assuming you know to do a serious test ride before you buy. Frame size is critical; I’m...

replied to Do you ride "on" or "in" your bike?
 
That’s a big difference, having your remote break and then having to set you saddle at one height for the entire race. You’re going to have to experiment and find what feels...

Ditto on the dropper post comment. I rode a long trail tonight and when I hit the more technical climbs, I dropped the post and was “in” the bike, rather than “on”....

They still make kickstands?!?  OK, seriously, I don’t know of anyone who uses one, from roadies to mtb’rs. And I spend my money on dropper posts and other such stuff as well;...

Shimano GR7 shoes for $82.00 from ProBikeKit. List price is $130. UK company but they ship worldwide. Just takes a bit longer to get stuff but I’ll post how long the wait...

‘I suspect Iowa (the location of the story) has quite a bit more of these same types of “roads”. Rural Iowa roads generally aren’t tree lined; they’re lined with corn. I too suspect alcohol...

I needed pedals (I wanted XT) and went to a LBS and he charged me $20 more than what XTR pedals cost.  I understand needing to make a profit but I’ll never go...
