    Bike for THE Noob!

    Ok... I suckered... convinced a friend of mine to start cycling. Of course, I would want him to MTB but I realized this may not be his cup of tea. I "think" he would enjoy mtb... but who knows? He has committed to buying a bike and will buy whatever I recommend. This is a heavy weight on my...

    Santa Cruz Flip chip & fork

    I was reading up on the flip chip and it says you "must" change to a 140 fork when switching to 29er wheels. Can anyone explain why this is? Is it strictly because of the geo or will the bike explode and burst into flames? I'm allergic to fire. My bike is a Hightower and currently on 27.5...

    Scratch on stanchion

    Had the stupidest fall today and ended up scratching my stanchion. Won't get into the detail because it was so dumb but does this need to be taken care of? If so, can it be fixed or does it need to be replaced? Lastly, how much will it cost? I can feel the scratch and it's a Fox Performance 36...

    Syringes for addicts

    It seems like you need a syringe for everything... brakes, dropper, tires. And if you own multiple brands or types, your tool box will make you look like a heroine addict. How many syringes do you have?
