I’ve been riding this bike for 16 months, and I’ve grown to love it. Let me count the ways …

The morning after.. my hamstrings are tight and I walk funny. Usually when I do a bend over stretch i can put my palms on the floor, today I barely make it to the floor. Should I have stretched more or less or differently? Ironically, regarding the one stretch I do most regularly (bending over) […]
Dear Lee I have a Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er from 2014. I really like this bike BUT I know the the newer bikes of the same type changed quite a bit in terms of the geometry. They have shorter chainstays and a slacker head angle for example. What are your thoughts about this? I don’t […]

Lee, I wanted to discuss your RAD number idea a little more. I read your article on Pinkbike and used the suggested ratio to calculate my RAD number and then went out to the shop and checked all my bikes. It was interesting. My BMX and 4X/dirt jump bike both were spot on the number. […]
Hi Lee, Just wanted to circle back with you (finally) as we built the Sweet Little Track back in late June. It turned out great and your plans and overall instructions were very helpful to this end. It’s a blast to ride and as you note it really freaks you out when you first experience […]
Lee, Did a mellow 5 x 8 minute spin/RipRow workout a couple days ago. Really felt it in the butt/back and later coming down the stairs, definitely not how I’d feel with 45 minutes of easy trainer work! I have a CycleOps Hammer smart trainer, used it in erg mode at around 170 watts and adjusted […]
Hi Lee, I hope you are doing well! I am interested, how you structure your endurance training this winter. I started the Pump Up the Base off-season training program last week and I did half the intervals on the bike trainer and the other half on the RipRow. After each interval, I switched to the other machine. […]
Hi Lee, First of all, thank you for all your work on the blog – it really is a standout in the bike-internet-knowledge base. As well as Dialed e-book that I bought today. After reading it, I have some questions. Perhaps you will find time to answer them? 1. How can I access the rider-and-bike calculator […]
If you haven’t seen Rough AF 3, see it now: The drop-in Jordie does at the beginning of the video … awesome! I needed to do a little math. Based on eyeball assumptions: Assuming a height of 16 meters and a transition radius of 8 meters, that yields 4 Gs in the transition. If Jordie weighs […]
Hi, I am seriously considering purchasing a RipRow. I can’t purchase both a rowing machine (which was original plan) AND the RipRow. So I thought you may be able to help with some info about me as a rider. I am 61, female, started mountain biking about 4 years ago. My confidence waxes and wanes […]
