Pinkbike Poll: Do You Remember Your First 'Real' Mountain Bike?
1996 (maybe 97) Trek Y11. Judy SL fork that literally blew up one day was replaced with an Indy SL. Full LX group 3x8. Still have the frame, fork and wheels.

Connor Fearon's Kona Supreme Operator - Lourdes DH World Cup 2016
Wouldn't be surprised to see some top riders switching to flats in that mud like they did in Cairns. I can't imagine it's easy to clip back in once that gloop is all over everything.

The Bakery: Changing What We Think We Know About Concussions
Yeah, no. Ibuprofen is a NSAID too. I'm assuming paracetamol is about the only thing you should be taking.

Zerode Taniwha - Crankworx Rotorua 2016
This is indeed all kinds of awesome from a design and engineering perspective. Think of the gripshift as an incentive to not death grip the bars. Besides, you're simply not going to get a trigger design that allows you to dump 12+ gears in one go. The only real problem I have with grip shifters is the currently limited options for replacement grips.

Now THAT Was A Bike - Moots Mountaineer
Since we’re being ‘precise’, Precision and Accuracy are not the same thing. Precision is repeatability. Accuracy is how close something actually is to being correct. If your goal is to always be within 50% of your target and you achieve that then you have been precise, wildly inaccurate but precise. So calling a pickup truck a car is not imprecise, so long as you always call it a car. It is inaccurate, but not imprecise.

Breaking News: Marzocchi to Close its Doors
Liquidating the Marzocchi Operations means turning them into cash rather than an asset. The only way to do that is to sell it to someone, in parts or as a whole. There's a whole lot of IP and inventory that has a value to someone, the price just needs to be right. They'll be back. They better be back.

YT Capra CF Pro - Review
I'll concede a BOS shock might not feel smooth over chatter, but the flip side is it also won't flinch no matter what chunder you stupidly plow through. I've found you don't get mid corner wallow or blow through the travel like certain other shocks might have a tendency to do. I'm personally more interested in how my shock behaves when things are getting hairy, not how it behaves on groomed trails or carparks.

Absolute Black Oval Chainring for Race Face Cinch Cranksets - Review
@dungeonbeast, I assume from the description of the redundant DOF in the ankle joint effectively negating the eccentricity of the pedal stroke that the data collection was based on clipless pedals with the ball of the foot placed over or very near the pedal spindle? This is a very road cycling style approach and I would expect you might find you collect quite different data using flat pedals and a more mid-foot position as is not uncommon when riding a mountain bike. Muscle recruitment between the two pedalling approaches is quite different and the mid-foot position significantly reduces the DOF at the ankle and is generally a far more stable riding position to adopt on unpaved surfaces, such as dirt. Smoothing out power output of the pedal stroke sounds like a pretty tangible benefit when standing to pedal a technical climb and dropping RPM accordingly to maintain traction. Sounds like your friend has a few more scenarios to consider before we declare oval rings pointless.
