No . It was on the rush flow trail in Draper . Rhythm section with a right curve. Compression, high speed face plant


Rode that trail for the first time a few weeks ago, it was so awesome! Did you ride it from the top or? There are so many sections on that trail to get into trouble, in the corners are tons of brake bumps which can send you in the weeds in a hurry! Sounds like this is what happened to you.....

Bummer to hear about the crash, recover soon in time for another shred session \:D/ \:D/

No , I was just below the section where the trails come back together., it's a very fast and smooth section of the trail . When was you here? Yes we ride it from the top. Clarks up, Rush down . What other trais did you ride ?

Yeah that trail is pretty awesome! HAd some bets with Fezzari about doing hot laps, super fun!

I was there for a couple days, most of which was in Ogden and had a few hours to kill so I rode that one then went and checked out the dirt jumps. Pretty stellar place

Like everything buddy, it all boils down to business opportunities. We were in this market years ago and it was a complete disaster. At our product position the market was limited and couldn't justify the value in our stuff. In the current bicycle market it is even harder, we have road, mountain, CX, adventure, city and so on! In these markets there are many sub markets, not to mention (wheels specifically) 29, 27.5 1mi different rim widths BOOST, non BOOST, sb+, disc, non disc, carbon, alloy and on........all of which can be debated is viable but its the market. Then we look at BMX, shrinking market, branding is super super key (where most of the brands today are rider run) and on and on.......

I can go on for hours about this but simply brands have to choose their battles

If lucky I can maybe dig us some hubs deep somewhere in the bottom of a shelf somewhere:)

Yeah yeah yeah I hear you. You'd rather make a bunch of weird new oem parts, than classic timeless original bicycle parts. [-( Every bike 1930-1998 would accept the same hub as modern BMX. Seems like a big market. :-k Could you not work with OEM BMX frame manufactures and set them up with a sweet thru-axle disc hub?

BMX is a world-wide sport you know? You guys make parts for every other disciple of Olympic level cycling. Why not BMX?

You are right about all the rider owned companies, and there are many hubs options, but nothing with the quality and parts availability of DTSwiss. Any bike shop has parts for your hubs(not that they ever need work). I also like the professional attitude that DTSwiss implies, and I think a lot of others would too. No purple and lime green ano or excessive machining designs. Strait-up, dressed for business parts that last.

Just sayn' Mr. World Sales Rep, please reconsider your position on manufacturing bmx parts.
