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.  […]

## Here’s a sweet Sweet Little Track pump track

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 […]

## 5 x 8 easy minutes on the trainer and RipRow

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 […]

## Base training on the RipRow

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 […]

## A little math about Jordie Lunn’s amazing drop-in

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 […]

## RipRow for endurance and vs. a rowing machine?

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 […]

## Review: my first four rides on the Trust Message fork

The internet has been exploding with news of the Trust Message linkage fork. I’ve been riding one! Here is a quick review.

## BMX or plus hardtail on a pump track?

Hey Lee – quick question. I am on a 27+ hardtail. This is the little pump track I use. Almost the whole track is in the frame. The bumps and corners come up so fast and it is sometimes hard to not run off the edge. When I put my 4 year old on it […]

## Berms in a very narrow pump track

Hey Lee, First off id like to say i love your building style and your website.Recently i have been reading up on pump tracks when i came across your website which i might add is amazing.Whilst reading i noticed that you said a backyard pumptrack could be as small as 20 x40.Ive been wanting to […]

## Dialed bike setup and front/rear weight distribution

Lee, We at Trail Werks Cyclery are trying to use your Dialed theories to fit body/bike but I have some questions that I’m sure you’ve thought about. Front/rear wheel attack position weight distribution – auto racing wants 50/50. What’s the theory on two-wheeled sports where body weight has such a huge impact? Is it 60/40 […]
