another advantage that comes to mind for the type of riding you are on about building a 3-wheeler for roger is lessening the impact of camber. Mountainbikes have a distinct advantage when traversing a steep slope. Obviously you will still have camber issues with the front end but i think you may get...

the best deck mbs ever made imho. Wide enough for mans feet and made in the US of A by Never Summer rather than in deepest darkest China. I love mine, got it for £16 last year!

For a competition to work, the track needs to be accessable for a large range of riding abilities as without the numbers paying their entry, there is nothing to pay for the comp in the first place. You know my views on what i would like to see in a downhill comp rog. Something techy, probably only m...

Had european tours summers of 2009 and 2010 riding in the swiss, french, itali...

The dimm press works pretty well and if you do your layup in several stages the angles you can get without vac-bagging are pretty impressive. http://vimeo.com/5084011
Can't beat a vac bag for the finish you get when using composites though.

durometer ratings are only comparable if a very similar compund is being used. Durometer (shore) ratings of skate wheels is next to useless when comparing how firm they feel in the real world. I assume egg shocks are made of pretty similar compunds and the science hasn't yet got too technical but i ...

front tends to help stop locking the wheels as much and offer a bit more control in technical trails (especially on a nosno disc system where lock up is far too easy if you don't have the insentive of not landing on your face to modulate them properly). Can be good fun on the back end though! but pe...

love the 4 ply alphas. Means you can also run them at low pressure when needed as they don't deform horribly like the 2-ply lites. The tread seems to stay actually on the tyre for longer aswell.

the problem i see with them is that people can shed speed without that being obvious to those behind them. If someone slides or sketches speed you can react, pull a brake lever and you've got no chance. I do see your point about it only being restricted in pro category though, that's where the speed...
