Who needs a bike when you can go 50 miles on a skateboard? lol

White stuff? I asked the same question... My partner told me either you ride it or you don't ride – subtext being HTFU. : \


Hitting trail with a climbing gym owner today. Because riding MTBs is way better than pulling plastic. Or standing on an electrified skateboard. It's what all the washed-up rockjocks who don't have the sack for BASE do. Inline wheelchair FTW.

Cragar,I agree about “flow”trails,we have people over here raking singletrack wide and dumbing down some technical sections.
We have issues.

That same energy could be used to learn how to ride a mountain bike.

Hey Wilbeer, I do not get it and have argued for decades to separate mountain biking from bmx or trick riding types of bicycling and the terra differences between the 2. You don't need a mountain to do back flips, can-cans, etc. however, you do if you want endless techy miles of singletrack and a feeling of being out there. Our moto trails are narrower and do less enviro damage than the single crazily built up flow trail we have. We have to bike parks being built in town and will quench the thirst of the jumpers and maybe some of our front country trails will narrow out but maybe not. The OutdoorLifestylers have been landing here like pigeonshit on a steeple and they screw up the riding areas enough!!

Edit: Yeah Wilbeer the energy/effort is always best when used to learn tech, skill and processes - aka, the old fashioned way. This is a foundation to climbing among other things but in the modern climate of want/need it fast, I believe learning the art/basics/nuances of any given philosophy and activity are evaporating in our modern society. I blame it on Google but really it is the current EGO that is constantly marinated in the internets.

If you were wondering how strong the new generation of mbike carbon wheels are, watch this video of Danny MacAskill trying to destroy a set. The real abuse starts about 1:50 into the video. Amazing!

Hey bike dudes....

I need a front and rear 700x35 commuter style set of wheels with tires and that spikey gear thingy on the rear... not disc brakes.

Any of you disposable income types upgrade your beater and have a set of these laying around? Will buy (cheap!!) trade, or barter.

Let me know

On another note...

Anyone here ride DVO suspension? My bud Tom Rogers is their designer and looks to be doing some cool and unique things there. Check em out if unfamiliar.

@Rockermike - fantastic piece of writing

Here's my little buddy. Living downtown Long Beach on 1st means parking is complicated, if you get home past 4:30.

In August, I finally built up a Dura -Ace bike. Had Hed Ardennes Black wheels.. married it all to a new Bianchi frame. Below my inaugural ride (hence the big smile). Rig is made for distance. Hope I am up to the task.

Miles optional, smiles mandatory. Nice work, S-mon. 👍🏼

matty: Props to your friend; DVO is making positive inroads. On my radar.

Russ, good luck...


Still leery of carbon fiber after MacAskill's rim destruction vid? This might bolster your confidence...

RJ - Quite possibly. His hair could be described as red and may have been more so at one time. He was a top mountain bike racer in the late 80's and early 90's. Take a look and lemme know.

Just got the "left over" parts from my old bike, plus some miscellaneous new components installed on the new carbon hardtail frame. Tomorrow I'll put some pedals on it and see what it will do.

Nice work, Randy. On a shoestring, too. Try not to float away. : )


While we're boasting weight...just under 32#.
