    cockpit seems a little cramped. Maybe a longer stem will help.

    Hard to find much longer high rise threaded stems.



    This is actually one of the most fun bikes I've owned in the last 10 years.

    Just sayin...

    Of course, I should give you the benefit of a doubt and assume that your weak number plate mojo may have been no fault of your own. It may well have been the result of substandard, non-regulation zip ties that you tried to get on the cheap but didn't hold up under load because they didn't meet IZTMA specifications.

    Yep non regulation zip ties. That and the little kids bike takes a pounding on CBC when hitting all the jumps and cleaning all the tech lines.

    That pic is from the last long log ride to nasty rock face exit.

    Flats + motocross boots = added sketch. Good think I was plenty drunk for that "race".

    On the subject of clips n flats, wearing one of each is a good medium, but make sure you match your shaven leg to your clipless, it just looks wrong the other way round.

    And dont trust your daughters or mothers around Osokolo, ive warned you all.......
    You again?

    Wait until I post some weird kanga'roo riding, thong wearing hairy dude. That might look just like you.

    I see you have been influenced into reading eastern Canuckistan history. Seek your own truth brother. Trust noone. Praise the ultra lords.

    Hang time for Shirk on so-called sketch TTF = zero

    Hang time for Joey = substantial

    Joey 1, Shirk 0.

    That is all.

    Seems Joey needs to work on hopping those silly little barriers.

    His landing could use some work.

    You got this all backwards. Think about the gift Joey has given cyclists everywhere (over 700k views) compared to if he had cleared the barrier. I vote Joey for international cyclist of the year award, 2012.

    One might guess that Joey's perspective on whether he was OK may have differed from the spectator's comment.

    That question is one for the ages, but I can say with reasonable confidence that trail running shoes would be preferable to clipless cycling shoes for extended running sections after dismounts. Watch Sven Nys' surprise footwear selection at the CX worlds in Louisville in the new year, and you'll see what I mean.

    Well, that neatly sums up why I won't be entering the world of extreme freeriding any time soon. I think Cam is about due for complete skeletal replacement at this point. Adamantium might be a good choice for him.

    I bet he never would have attempted that gap on a fat bike!

    couldn't tell from the other picture. I bet it is a lot of fun. Something that small would be awesome to throw around. Like a BMX/trail bike hybrid. Something like Inspired bikes is making. I know a guy riding a Hex with a shock in the Agreement forest.

    Cam's like the riding equivalent of the kid who yells "Look Ma, I can fly" just before jumping out of the tree. Did he forget his parachute or something? Anyhow, until he's making that jump on a 'cross bike Joey still wins.

    yeah, i tend to agree with that... even in his fall, Cam looks big... Joey's fall is just glorious...

    like, how the hell did you do that boy?

    Darn! - I thought I was the only one. It is somehow comforting to learn that others are afflicted with this condition.

    edit: p.s. - off to do Brimley hill repeats
