Results: Rose Bikes BDS 2015: Round 2
Let's remember that Gee does stuff like the 'Atherton Experience Day' where the team meets and rides with fans for a day. There are many teams and atheletes who don't do anything like that but get a lot less hate.

ION bike protectors K_CAP and K_CAP_SELECT
"Feature one helps you to gain unrivalled acceleration when pedalling." It's a bold claim, i'll give them that.

Trek Stache 9 - Review
"29+ does mute some of the sensations that I've come to appreciate with 'regular' sized tires - the handling simply isn't as precise in technical terrain" So the handling manages to be worse than a regular 29er? And this new trend is meant to be a good thing hahaha

Intense Announces the M16
I think the head tube area is what disappoints me the most. The earlier spy shots on VitalMTB looked much sleeker: http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/PIT-BITS-World-Cup-Lourdes-France,8798/PIT-BITS-Intense-M16-at-Lourdes-World-Cup,88714/sspomer,2 Maybe that's a different size to the ones pictured here? Or perhaps Intense had to add more strength at the head tube on the production bikes.

10 for 10 - #2 Aaron Gwin
I wouldn't call myself religious now but I did go to church with my parents for years when I was growing up. However I still don't understand it when athletes thank God/Christ for putting them there. Doesn't God have anything better to do? Like helping out the people starving to death around the world? As a kid in church, those people, people who really need the help, were the kind of thing we were encouraged to pray for. Not some guy who wants to win a bike competition. Another reason "I'm only here because God wanted me to be" seems like a strange concept to me: If I trained as much as these top racers and won a WC I would feel really shitty saying that part of my success came from something completely out of my control. What if I didn't win? Does God not like me anymore? Of course Gwin is free to believe anything he likes and it's good that he is so motivated by his beliefs. Not trying to start a christian/atheist bust up here. [bet one starts anyway, right?]

Opinion: Driving With Dad and the Boost Hub Standard
I've gotta admit, when I rode a hard tail for the first time in years all I could think was: "did my knees just fall off?"

Ask Pinkbike: Loose Crankarms, Dumping my DH for an AM Bike, Direct-Mount vs 4-Bolt chainrings and Bike Vacationing in Finale
This^ If you have a DH bike, never let it go, unless you are switching it for a new one. They are just so damn fun.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
It's funny, I always thought that Porsche's cars were actually decently priced among other cars of similar specs. They were the cheaper, reliable, trusted (but less exciting) option as opposed to a Lambo or Ferrari for example... However, it has been a while since I really paid much attention to cars.

Video: Chris Akrigg On a Fat Bike?
I agree about the wheels, Chris manages to make any bike look like it weighs about a quarter of its actual weight but that bike still looked heavy. I imagine if I rode it it would be like me pedaling a tractor.
