    Curious how it rides. As long as it retains its fun poppy nature i'm game. I only have limited experience with mullets and thats on big travel bikes & ebikes.

    Bikers Edge did a fun little piece on 27.5 vs MX a couple years ago. I just stumbled on it recently. It’s still simply someone’s opinion, but it was entertaining and somewhat insightful.

    I liked it as the Mojo is on my shortlist. Too bad I don’t really care for the aesthetics of most any Ibis bike. Looks are a minor quibble, but it’s a toy, why not like what it looks like.

    Anyone have input on bike storage? I have three bikes and can't leave them in the shed for the winter months - going to get in the way of snow removal tools. Came across the steadyrack and looks like a great way to store bikes in the basement and keep them semi out of the way. Don't want to lean them up against the wall and risk a divorce from too many bikes in the way.

    Stuff. Also things.
    I love my SteadyRack! It keeps my bike tight to the wall and out of the way, with zero issues.

    Down the road I plan to have at least two more for my lady’s MTB and for a future hardtail :spy:

    I was thinking about this type of bike storage last night for the garage. Just to open up some more space in the garage. It will be a bit of a project to rearrange, but that’s what winter is for.

    I do like how that looks though!

    I also have and love our steadyracks. I fit 6 bikes on a small garage wall this way. They're also great because it's really easy to take the bikes on/off; much easier than a hook.

    Edit: Here's an older picture...

    I've ridden a handful of mullets now. My feeling is that the 29er front just allows you to boss the rest of the bike around easier. They are definitely the king of drifting, all you gotta do is shift your weight forward a little and things get wild fast. It's not like a lack of traction I have no issue staying hooked and fast, it's just a little more sensitive to body position at the limit. There's also a little less muscling required to change direction compared to a full 29. I don't really foresee myself replacing my full 29 trail bike with a mullet anytime soon, if anything I'd go back to full 27.5 especially for a freeride rig... but seems like the industry is pushing it pretty damn hard these days.

    video my buddy made...yours truly at the start. I know a real face for radio... haaa


    Next one is coming up oct 8th. Gonna be a big one. Clean Dezert linked up with the California 300 series which is owned by the Mint 400. We (Bad Lines Good Times) are doing lunch again tacos and pull pork... for 700 o_O. The raffle is going to be epic. Obviously, a great cause helping keep our deserts open.

    Here's the thread on that.

    You're seen my solution, just those rubber coated hooks mounted in a floor joist. Much, MUCH less money that the system you're looking at. I have some wall mounted brackets I'll give you if you want. They didn't work the way I wanted to mount my bikes.

    Rob did a phenomenal job commentating along with Caludio, Bart, Eliot and Tracey not only in DH but XCO/XCC. It will not be the same with Rob and the crew. Without them, there is a hole that Discovery is already starting in.

    Discovery needs to understand the jewel that Red Bull built. The bar has been set very high with the current crew and Discovery/Warner Bros have their work cut out for them. The expanded schedule may do well but the off-site commentators (and who commentates - some are dreadful) will make a lot of the difference. Let's hope for the best and have Discovery make the jewel shine.

    Interesting, I read the Discovery press release they linked in that one. I didn't realize they owned GCN and GMBN. They are going all in so they could pull it off. I'm also wondering what Red Bull is up to since Rob Warner said they have some plans for next year.

    Just finished a 7 day bike pack from Molas Pass just south of Silverton, CO to Moab with a group of friends. Epic trip, a few curveballs along the way but our group of 8 got it done. Good times with good friends.
