5 Questions with Red Bull Hardline Winner Bernard Kerr
Yeah, was enjoying it until the jarring last question. If the question had been about all of his kit and he'd happened to have mentioned the carbon hoops holding up I'm not sure if have noticed but mentioning the specific product in the Q was really odd. Made it stand out way more. Sponsored or not it's just badly done. Only my opinion obvs.

Practice - Red Bull Hardline 2016
@poah: I'm pretty sure he started building this thing WAY before the first event in 2014 - so he would have been building it in 2103 for sure, hence "started ... three years ago".

661 Recon Knee Pads - Review
@dtax: I knew you were being sarcastic, hence "Most definitely not a stick figure ;-)" :-) @hetfield You use stones? Thats sarcasm right? UK use stones but converted it to lbs for you americans!

661 Recon Knee Pads - Review
@dtax: Most definitely not a stick figure ;-) - You'd think the largest size a popular brand do would fit the legs of a man like myself, not even nearly the biggest legs in the 95th %ile i imagine. Other brands do XXLs which are almost baggy on me, so I'd say this was an issue with 661 not me being extraordinarily large.

Inside Chain Reaction Cycles
Can't really fault them. Had 1 order that disappeared (£480+ worth) and they fixed it no questions asked. Royal Mail had failed miserably. Great prices, huge range, but for me the returns policy is the winner. No barrier to sale as if I don't like it I just send it back. Bingo. Try to buy from LBS as often as possible but they barely ever have what I want and if they order it in often they can't return it.

661 Recon Knee Pads - Review
Bought these and sent them back. Sizing is way off. XL only just barely got over my knee but was so tight it was painful. Made my thighs look like link sausages. The back of knee strap was annoying too. I'm 6'2" 200lbs fwiw.

August 2016: Good Month or Bad Month
@blahblahbikes: Agreed. Yes Rachel could have maybe been less bombastic with her response, but its very hard to put yourself in her shoes so to speak, and know what its like to have this behaviour in every walk of life - this was likely the thing that made her lose her tolerance. I think Claudio and Rob meant no harm/malice or are even necessarily remotely sexist, but institutionalised sexism comes from a place of lazy default language, behaviours and attitudes, a product of a history of patriarchy, that all need addressing. I am a feminist (Men and women should be treated with EQUALITY, neither superior) but I am sure I am guilty of institutionalised sexism now and again, because I grew up surrounded by male-centric language during my formative years (TV, Films, the pub etc). However, I am not a world-stage commentator, so have no role model status or international influence. If I did I would be sure to choose my language carefully, to do justice to athletes regardless of gender. Imagine a young girl growing up wanting to get into the sport, seeing Rachel and getting motivated, and then hearing that her success is down to her brothers!? Not a great message. Theres no doubt they have all influenced each other, and helped each other, but to attribute her success to only that one element does total injustice to her absolute commitment, and complete dominance in the sport. Claudio and Rob regularly refer to Minnaar as 'the greatest DH'er of all time', (He's my fav rider personally) but thats just not right. Its Rachel - ~22 or more WC wins, to Gregs ~18. No malice meant I'm sure, but its a product of a patriarchal society. If people think the patriarchy is nonsense, it shows they don't know what it means. The hecklers rock thing, thats utterly abhorrent.
