...it's like telling everybody as you go by, "yes, I like biking, you see I'm very keen on it"...

Opinion: Mountain Bike Movies - Are You Still Stoked?
I kinda agree that bike movies aren't as exciting as they once were, but to me it seems that the issue is CONSTANT SLOW-MO. Not the riding style, just trying SO hard to exaggerate everything the rider does that it takes away from the experience of watching a good rider shred whatever they are good at. Sure, I may never do the same huge jumps and tricks as the freeride pros out there, but seeing them shred gets me stoked to ride anyway, because when I see someone charging a nice trail, I want to get out there and do that too! Seeing riders in their element just makes me want to go get some myself, because even though I may not be doing the same magnitude of riding they are, I can imagine it and feel like I am really shredding anyway.

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Watch the Finals
Why did they make it all about the wood features again? Whenever someone did an original line, the announcers acted shocked, as if it is a bad decision! WTF

First Look: Trek's New Carbon Slash, 27.5 Session DH Bike, and 26" Session Park Bike
I'm surprised, these bikes look good, seem to be well built for the purpose, and might even be reasonably priced, whatever that means currently... well played, Trek

FSA K-Force Brakes - Review
Don't try to rationalize the low stopping power of the brakes by saying they have good modulation. I'd say its better to learn to control powerful brakes than learn to cope with low power because the brakes are more forgiving to lead fingers.

Results: Crankworx Les 2 Alpes Slopestyle Finals
It seems like, despite the aspirations of the organizers to make L2A an amazing course, the features ended up being big and gnarly and cool to watch, but not smooth. It seems that the course was just missing the flow and style that all the other major slopestyle events let the riders have, instead forcing them to ride in a sort of make-do-with-what-you-have way. It didn't seem like a really fair competition, since the spirit of the event is to have fun after all, and all the riders (well, on 72% of the runs) seemed to be pushing so hard to just get high scores that they crashed. It doesn't seem right that this event was a challenge to throw as many tricks as possible on a lackluster course. It should be a contest about style and fun, and a display of rider skill rather than of tenacity when the conditions aren't good. Save that for Rampage. /rant
