I'm with @mongwolf that every bit of your gear should be used in different applications. There were few occasions when I found difficult to find a spot for my tent and rooftop...
I met few guys who smoked before riding downhill, "just to take the edge off". I followed them for a mile and wasn't impressed with what I saw. It didn't help them to go faster for sure. Obviously it's a personal choice to use or not to use. I prefer to stay sober while riding…
Not many biking videos over 10 minutes long I've seen lately. This one is truly interesting to watch. Congratulations, Colton, on successful race.

replied to Is cyclo cross taboo?
 
Hi, @xcxc. I don't think it's taboo on here. Singletracks is one of the best online cycling community I ever seen and many guys riding gravel/cx bikes when trails are wet. I'm not...

I'd say go for the best bike your money could buy. Also reserve some cash for gear - helmet, pump, patch kit, shorts, gloves etc could cost quite a sum alone. Used market...
Cool tips. Using construction heat gun to make toasts is genius :)
Well done video. Especially considering what bike he used and what video equipment it was filmed with. But I'm sure there's gotta be even older videos.

Cool video. I had the same question about the sun, while watching your video :) i like this vivid colorful landscape.
You should also check true fat bike (better with suspension) for comparison. Those plowing thru anything, but to be fair at a slower speed :)
Greg, looks like you've touched the wasp nest with this article. :) I rode plus bike only for half a day and found all points you brought to be true. Second half of the day rode my 29er with more aggressive tires on the same trail and it felt much faster and better cornering. About…
Interesting results. Never seen anyone with phone, gps and cyclocomputer mounted on the bike.

<p style="text-align: left;">I think you're right. E-bikes already have plenty of power. Hard to imagine how's it gonna be if they become even more powerful</p>
Very unusual review, Aaron. Good story and nice pictures ????
Interesting. I get it with saddles - more padding. What is so special about helmet? I thought non-electric bikes are capable of the same speed although going downhill and helmets are designed...
 
If this is a really steep smooth Singletrack don't brake at all - free speed yeah :) jokes aside, I use both with front brakes being applied harder. I know one guy who...
Looks impressive. He definitely have balls and talent.
Looks easy when he does that Punch :)

replied to Making hardtails less bumpy?
 
@coffeecup, try to raise a little off of your seat, when pedaling over an obstacle. As @DrSweets said, it's not a saddle to remain seated on but rather a seat to rest...

This is a sign of poor riding technique in most cases. It either too much weight over rear wheel or your legs too stiff when hitting those roots. Clipless pedals or nice grippy...
I know many folks use this type of handlebars for long-distance touring but never seen it on a Singletrack. With brake levers and shifters located so low and close to the frame...
