yeah, I don't agree with these "modern" mtb geometries: I like longer chain stays still, mid size top tubes and more moderate angles. I am old school

Yes, when you go longer on the "top tube" on the MX bike for an XL for example to make the bike fit, you could make the head angle slightly steeper to compensate in the handling area.

Tires should not be close to a MX track.

Can't do that as you will not be able to shift then (with the SG-12).

Confirms a lot! I go through about two sets of boots a year so I can experiment over the winter in the off season.

JH84 wears Alpinestars: super fast but his feet are often damaged

Interesting. I got the Gaernes because when riding mx tracks with lots of jumps my feet got sore with the Alpinestars. So, yes, with the Gaernes no more sore feet but less feel. The Alpinstars also have poor protection on top of your feet, but maybe ... more »

Yes I will! Has anybody else experienced this?

I race in the German Cross Country Championships and did not do so well in the last three races. Fitness, bike, state of mind, etc are all good. The only difference is that I switched from Alpinestars Tech 10 (used them for the last 4 years) to the latest ... more »

I think Prado on the 450 will be quite competitive!

The track was still fairly smooth at most parts compared to this track when in real use. They looked ok. Some experts watching mentioned that Jason was "using too much clutch". After they were done I saw an out of shape Marcus Schiffer do a lap and he ... more »

You are correct! They were on the Grevenbroich winter track. Although in the summer

it is not as difficult, they were having a good time in REAL SAND. Very nice talking to Zach and Jason, great guys; got some very interesting infos from the ... more »
