I was recently setting up one of my clients, a 5’4” female, and her optimal bar width was narrower than the minimum width marked on her Spank Oozy 760 Vibrocore handlebar.
Rather than guess, I asked Mike Dutton, sales director at Spank, whether it’s safe to cut narrower than the “max cut” mark on the bar.
Where is the ideal place to put the pedal under my foot? Should it be more under the ball of my foot or in the middle of my arch?
How well does the Fuse manual and bunny hop? I ride a Chromag 26” Hard tail. It is a great bike to mix in some trials type moves. The down side is the 27.2 dropper seat post options. The Fuse looks like the best of both worlds with the traction it has.
I have the same Stumpjumper Expert 2012 you have. Mine has original shocks and has carbon Roval rims Been riding a 2.3 Ground Control front and 2.1 Captain rear. I have a 2.4 Purgatory I could put on front and move the Ground Control to rear.
My friends have 27.5 Nomads etc. We ride freeride. Could get Maxxis DHR front and DHR rear. Is that a good setup for my Stumpjumper 29? Roots and freeride with dry hardpack and loose pine needles.
Riding in Hawaii. Whats the best thing to upgrade this bike in tire handling to 2016 standards? Thanks, Jason
This bike’s first ride turned into a mess of crusty/melty snow and slick mud. Not impressive.
Friday night’s adventure? Rad!
It showed what this bike can do.

First thought after some tomfoolery aboard the Guerrilla Gravity MegaTrail and PedalHead: AWESOME!

Pick your brain? Quick question: Intense Tazer vp, or a hardtail 4x bike for pump and jump duty? I have access to two world class flow trails, and with a hanky ankle, the cush might just save me. The primary purpose of this impending purchase, however, will be skill building on the pump track. Does having a soft rear end (well, firm, but not static) muddle things and defeat the purpose?
I just read over Pump Up the Base and am fired up to get going. In particular, I had been thinking of giving flat pedals a try for a while, and this is a great excuse to do so. Do you have a type of flat pedal and flat pedal shoes you’d recommend, or are they all pretty similar?
Lastly, is there a local bike shop that you’d recommend for shoes and pedals. I find most shops are real good with bikes and parts, but there’s not a lot of expertise with shoes out there. I’ve got weird feet and need more help than most. Thanks for you your help, and thanks for the REVO referral. I’ll be giving them a call soon.
I’m stoked on LandWave ramps and decks. The modular, stackable system lets you build all kinds of tracks and shapes. Lately I’ve used them for my kids’ birthday party and teaching various skills to clients.
Extra stoked: I found a way for you to save money on ‘em.
I’m getting a road bike for my birthday. Any suggestions? I hear I’ll be a stronger mountain biker for doing so.
