He is starting his own media/testing deal, similar to what Keefer does.

He’s actually been part-time for a while, and has a few things to wrap up here before diving headfirst into his own program. We wish him the best in his new endeavors. We feel like Vital was a great launching pad for him.

As far as cost-cutting? No. Actually, we’ve been expanding, adding Sean Klinger last year, and we’re currently in the midst of hiring for a new content creator position. We’re actually growing.

GuyB - I shot you a couple emails about something - and PM’d Klinger in a project ML and I were working on. Is there a better way to contact you and him?

I was just replying to your @vitalmx email, and was hoping you saw it.

Yeah. He’s very good at it. Keep in mind that this work is usually done behind the scenes... and doesn’t always get published out like keefer does.

Good for ML taking a leap and branching out.

East coast here looking for some work. Lol.

Bike test videos went down the drain in the past year. Dirt Rider is junk after Keefer left, TWMX is done so no more reviews by Pat Foster, and now Vital does not have ML. The only one worth watching is Racer X with Ping.

ML couldn't handle the pressure he was getting for not following through with his (A-Kit) suspension shootout.

J/K ML devil

Good luck in your new endeavors!

Yup, I couldn't take the pressure, it was eating at me and I just couldn't figure out how to bottom them... laughing tongue

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

I'll be doing plenty of videos, actually many more...including one on the 19 450 FE...it'll just be another week or so till I get my hands on it.

Can't wait for you to get up and running ML! Good luck and we are going to miss you around here.

Are you going to be doing everything on your own or do you have other test guys that will be working with you, kind of like what Keefer does?

I was a contributor for about 6 months, then full time for a little over 4 1/2 years, then part time for the last about six months...although the first two months or so of that I was basically working full time laughing

Mostly video and a bit of podcasts. I’ll explain what exactly is going on in a couple weeks, super excited about it. smile
