    Again, having logged probably a thousand or more miles, even racing, with the steel Fargo fork, I think the carbon fork is vastly superior. Anyone who asserts steel in this application is superior is...

    Although I've only got about 175 miles on the Deadwood, I've easily put over 4,000 on my two Fargos, with probably half of that on rough gravel and singletrack. So, I feel I can speak with confidence...

    Getting started is easier than you might think, once you start to assemble the basics. I haven't added to this series in a while, but you might take a look at it:

    I want to thank DanCooper for taking the time to write his post, and not just because it acknowledges my personal opinion. It is simply a well worded and experienced opinion worth hearing. I also...

    Americans don't tend to tackle this discussion head on, but rather at oblique angles that make it hard to understand the real reasons Americans feel so strongly one way or another. And this happens...

    Okay - I never in a million years suggested anyone is over compensating or paranoid.

    But I think you simply fail to see my point about an individual's perceived assessment of threat.

    Life is rife with perceived dangers, but they are often unique to the individual. Nearly everyone...

    Not ignorant. Honest. Everyone makes decisions and preparations to guard themselves against the threats they feel are most real––for them. There are a myriad of things I think are likely to punch my...

    Everything is relative. By this logic, I arguably travel to far more remote places than you do. My preferred method of travel, as it has been for the better part of a couple decades, is a bicycle. I...

    I made the choice to replace my Drift HD Ghost with the new 4K Sony camera. We'll see how it goes. I really liked my Ghost over the GoPro...by far.

    Well, sure. The rogue stick and unexpected crash have potential to damage anything. I am speaking primarily to simple mechanical failure. It is possible to almost eliminate most mechanical failures...

    One of my pals did a similar route around Tahoe a few years ago. Beautiful area and 200 miles is a nice length of a ride. Not too long, not too short. Easy to carry all the necessary food supplies....

    I've got about 16,000 miles in my C3 and C3 Pro helmets. I rode through Colorado's worst rains in a century with my C3 and through 118 degree temps in Baja. They work. I'm a fan, for sure.

    I will...
