    maybe this time around, the RM crew won't bring a bunch of unwanted attention to our under-the-radar trails....

    i wouldn't have brought it up, but i recognize the location in the pic from the same haunt that all the attention was brought to the last time....

    in the midst of my ranting, i have to admit, that pic is so goddamn tight....

    I thought Bender was the godfather? Can there be more then one godfather? Does this have something to do with the legalities of gay marriage?


    Agree with WCH that is a great pic.

    Yeah, that pic is tight. I agree though that RM bringing unwanted attention to the SoCal trails in the past was a bummer.

    All in all, Wade is probably my favorite rider......regardless if he isn't throwing backflips or tailwhips. Of course, it doesn't hurt that he's a damn nice guy either.

    I remember doing one of the Schley camps at the bike park a few years ago and had the pleasure of severely cramping both Ritchie and Wades day as they spent a good chunk of it with our group and my VERY limited skills. They were super nice and did not make me feel like the dead weight that I was.

    To this day I still re-torque my RF diabolous crankset every ride as it loosens just like their prototype ones were.

    The RM guys left it there because they thought other people would hit it. They were not aware of the problems it would cause,if they did they would of torn it down. I would hit that drop any time, any day.

    if they are so worried about nature and all the stuff they say on their website then they should have never built it period
