Brian, made this a sticky, hopefully you can get more feedback this way. For those who may not know, Brian is a great trailbuilder with an incredible work ethic and a ton of good ideas. His stuff at Wintergreen was excellent and it's pretty certain that Magic Mtn. will be off the hook once he sinks ...

ummm, it's a downhill rim, it's light, and it works amazing. What difference does it make if it has a sidewall for brake pads? Jeez.

Dude, don't get a SGS Pro for XC stuff. It doesn't run a front derailluer, so if you feel like riding up everything in your 38t or whatever front ring, go ahead. It pedals great but is NO xc bike. The weight isn't so much the issue as the no-front-derailleur deal.

That's the ballz. One recommendation I'd have for you -- replace that headset with the e-13 internal cups; it REALLY helps with that Shiver. You can get your front end down, get full contact on the topcrown/upper tubes, and not have to worry about that 2.8 buzzing the crown when you bottom out. I ha...

yeah, I've owned quite a few FSR bikes, and having recently ridden a couple of dw-link bikes, I can confidently say that the dw basically kicks the shit out of FSR, hands down. Actually, VPP kicks the crap out of FSR as well, for whatever that's worth. I'd tend to rank the fsr pretty low as far as e...

Nah, the shaved cleats thing is totally different -- Speedgoat shaves them to reduce the number of degrees of rotation needed to release from the pedal - 15deg. is the minimum for Eggs. Shaving lets you release with less rotation. Mine are already so worn out that you don't need to rotate at ALL to ...

when I used to ride road, there were exactly 2 clip-ins/outs per ride - one when I started, and one when I got back home. With XC it's not much more than that for me. DH on the other hand, sees tons of clip-ins/outs. Definitely a higher-wear activity, by a huge margin. I don't need to find out how d...

Yeah. I just compared a less-used pair of cleats that I had laying around for my XC bike to the worn-out ones on my DH shoes, and those "ledges" on the DH ones are virtually gone.

I wrecked a couple of times at Snowshoe b/c of unexpected clip-outs at REALLY bad times. Color me pissed.

arrggh. Now my cleats are totally worn out, they won't stay clipped in. What a bitch; I know they're brass and won't last forever, but less than 2 months? C'mon.

shit dude, if your budget is $500, then get a used '02/03 Shiver DC that will blow basically everything else out of the water. It shouldn't be hard at ALL to find one in that price range or less. If you open yourself up to the used market, you will find a LOT. Used Super T's go for $400-ish as well....

Hmm, can't win I guess? I'm about 155 with equipment on. My second pair of Time Z lasted only a few days at Diablo before I broke the pedal body. I have several pairs of Mallets (C and M) and neither have bent yet - guess its good to be light damn. Times was gonna be my next shot, can't win indeed....

After a little less than a month, I bent both spindles on my Mallet M's. Then about a week ago, I snapped a spindle while sprinting towards a jump. Crank Bros was super-cool about sending me new spindles, but I gotta say -- these things are NOT heavy-duty by any stretch, probably best for lite DH or...
