sixsixone Core Saver 2011

Last year ( 2010 ) on Moab's Sovereign Trail I managed the "Mother of all Endo's"  off a 4 foot ledge, face planting myself in luckily the only bit of sand in miles.  The end result was a cracked sternum and 3 cracked ribs. The cause of all these cracked bones, was .... my camera!. I always wear my camera fastened to my camelback  chest strap, and I landed on my face and chest, and the camera pushed directly into my sternum, cracking it along with the 3 ribs. I realized how lucky I actually … [Read more...]

2011 Coresaver by sixsixone

Although 2010 was a fantastic year for me on and off the trails, it was also quite a painful year due to a few "crashes".

Edit GoPro HD videos Free Easy and Fast

Unlike the standard GoPro that recorded in .wma, the GoPro HD are encoded in mpeg4 h.264 format. Now although this format has been around for quite some time, a lot of video editors will not import the MP4 format.

Owenhouse Bicycling and Fitness Bozeman

A day before I did one of my rides in Bozeman, I went through my camelbak to check all my spare parts. I have made it a habit to carry 2 of everything I might need to at least get me off the trail if anything happens to my bike.
