Ghost AMR Riot Lector 7 - Review
"There's a lot to like about this bike if finding flow on trails that don't ask you to let it all hang out in order to clean them is what you're into, or at least ride them competently, and someone who knows what they're doing is going to have the snappy little Ghost in all sorts of interesting places on the trail." Huh?

Interview: Manon Carpenter - 2014 DH World Champion
I think that female athletes from all sports earn less than men, even globally, and in other professions as well. It's not really a surprise to hear that DH has lower earnings for women, which is too bad given how hard they work for it. But there is no reason a motivated woman couldn't do something about it, and really increase her popularity and earnings if that was where her ambition truly was. I guess racing is more important than marketing for most. That keeps such a small sport pure and as a fan I appreciate their dedication and integrity. Does anyone wonder if a woman was competing in slopestyle and freeride events (like Gee and Fairclough, etc) how much her sponsorship value would go up? I for one would watch a web series following a top woman rider. Some sponsor should make it happen next year.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
Well, when I was there they were building wheelsets like mad. There was no way for me to know what was being shipped out.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
No, that's the way the rims look brand new. Enve does as little as possible cosmetically to their rims. What you are seeing is the parting line between the two halves of the mold. I used to work there making the molds. Their bars, post, stems etc are all sanded and painted though.

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
I think stiffness is also a personal preference just like most things on a bike's setup. Most people will say my bike is under sprung and over damped, but that's how I like it. Wouldn't you agree that balance is different from person to person?

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
I have the 240's and they have been great for two years without problems, and I like that my freehub is really quiet. My son has a 240 rear hub and it's super loud. I don't know if it's an optional freehub, or different grease, etc

ENVE M60 Forty Wheels - Review
I just had to do that a few weeks ago. I had to remove the tire, tape, and sealant. I had to buy new tape and sealant, plus a special spoke wrench. It was quite the ordeal just to fix my rear tire rubbing the chainstay! They do go up hills easier, though. I feel my 26AM were a huge improvement on ride quality and enjoyment, but not enough to pay what they're asking. If I hadn't gotten special treatment, I would be rolling on Derby rims. I just put a Ripley 29 on layaway and I think the derby rims would lace up nicely on the DT Swiss 240 hubs (mine are six bolt disc mount). If only someone wanted 26" Enve rims I could practically pay for the new bike!!!

Video: A Girl And Her Bike Are A Wonderful Thing Part Two
I think you missed the point of the intro, Briana. What I took from it was, "Here is what society thinks I should be." then it shows her on the bike giving the message, "This is who I want to be!" And even if I'm wrong, there is inherently nothing wrong with her expressing her sexuality or the naked human body. Only stupid institutions like religion and conservative society try to apply shame to the human body or the act of sex. Lighten up a little.

Well, I'm not against the idea, I'm pretty much down to live in any country as long as its not rainy all the time.
