Trek Stache 9 - Review
That's another thing (by the way I propped your comment). I don't like that "trail flattening" characteristic that fat bikes advertise. Now, I haven't ridden a fat bike however that will change soon. I just don't think that eliminating trail feedback is really a good thing unless you have back issues or something like that. For someone who enjoys going fast (like myself) I feel that a normal tire of maximum 2.5" is preferable because on average they're lighter and provide solid trail feedback without being too harsh. Trail feedback relates more to being able to really pick out lines and have fun on the bike while "good" suspension keeps your riding in check...

Trek Stache 9 - Review
I'm sure they're "good". I just don't think fat bikes (or semi-fat) can/will replace an MTB. I feel like these fat wheels are a way of making up for poor/no suspension but can't really replace a good full suspension bike or a good hardtail...

Or it's because you "currently" don't live in a place where fat bikes can really use their full benefits aka a snowy place. It can also be because as of right now fat bikes aren't really up to snuff of a regular MTB and probably will never really "replace" the regular MTB.

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
I don't know for sure but I'm pretty sure a helmet is designed to dissipate energy over several layers. At least the high quality ones are. Because if you concentrate a force in one specific area then you actually increase the likeliness of head trauma. Like new cars are designed to essentially crumble and dissipate the energy over large areas so that you increase duration but you decrease intensity and therefore decrease the likeliness/severity of injury. MIPS is essentially designed to absorb shock over various layers so that the persons' head experiences a smaller load over a greater area... ^^^Hope that makes a bit of sense

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
That's coming from that entire Michael Schumacher thing and lets just be honest, Skiing and downhill mountain biking are two completely different sports for the most part. No matter what, if any of these guys crash on a course like Lourdes (for instance) they're going to get injured. A GoPro is going to make little to no difference to the rider if their head impacts the ground. Gopros are designed to be durable but the mounts break and bend and truly that's a good thing when these guys crash...

Jérôme Clementz Rides Michelin Tires, Which Tires Are You Running?
I live in Phoenix. I've tried the Ardents and personally I find them "over rated". It's an okay rear tire, but not nearly enough grip up front... I think they suck.
