Helping an Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal with Vive La Vie
Hard to believe we ride bikes that cost more than an average yearly salary in Nepal ($3500 USD).

High Voltage: The Inside Line on Electronic Shifting and Suspension
True, but it is only a matter of time before batteries become more powerful, and devices use less power that you will rarely need to charge anything. Manufactures are releasing electronic components because they know it is the future. Electronic shifting will cost less than mechanical shifting some day, be vastly easier to install, more reliable, faster, lighter, and integrated with your other components. Think about the use model, think about setting your bike into climb mode with one click: 1) your shock locks out 2) your fork goes into low travel, becomes stiffer 3) tire PSI decreases 4) your BB height raises 5) seatpost raises fully 6) etc I would not be at all surprised if all of this done automatically based on trail profiles and GPS, settings could be changed on the fly for every bump, jump, dip, and rut. Even differently per day depending on the weather. Does this take some of the skill out of knowing and doing these things yourself? Sure it does, just like every other mechanical advantage discovered by humans does, but those who know the principals behind them will utilize them best. These things will offer a funner experience, in the end who cares what your geometry, compression, dampening, and PSI are? Messing with all of the technicalities takes away time from riding.

Industry Nine's New Enduro Wheels - Interbike 2016
Wow, nice looking wheels but you should only get these for two reasons 1) they are free 2) you're an incredibly narcissistic showoff. If you have money to burn and you're a good person you should give it to a charity. If you like quality at a much lower price, may I suggest... MTB180 hubs, DT Revolution spokes, and Light Bicycle rims. My 30mm wheels are 1564g, cost $608 to build, and have been bullet proof over 500 miles so far.

Kali Releases Multiple Impact Helmet: The MacDuff - Interbike 2016
@KaliProtectives: Thanks for the info and I watched all of the video. I suggest making a short video with the simulated crash with and without the LDL. Front and center on your page, it speaks more than any marketing or review would ever say to me. People are used to marketing lying and bending the truth, most reviews are glorified ads and many are paid for. But show a video like this and there is no questioning it, there is no debate, it's safer, done. Do you plan on using LDL in trail or enduro helmets?

Kali Releases Multiple Impact Helmet: The MacDuff - Interbike 2016
Increasing the size of the layer increases the size of the shell, which is two fold negative (at least that I can think of maybe there are other negatives), it increases weight, which increases all forces across the board on your neck. It increases the length of the moment arm that reacts against your neck, thereby increasing force on your neck, albeit it as a lesser distance and slower rate, idk maybe it is a win or a wash. With the randomness of every crash it's probably impossible to say. The whole idea could be a load of BS marketing, but at least this has a real crash behind it on video, too bad they don't have controlled crash video and results comparing a "normal" helmet. Show us some real data!

Stans Debuts S1 Affordable Wheel Range - Eurobike 2016
Pretty good specs for the price on these, prolly can't beat them for preassembled wheels. For comparison sake I built my own using LB Carbon Rims, MTB/MTR hubs, DT Revolution spokes. 30mm internal width, $608, 1564g for the set. Have put about 400 miles on them so far, through some rocky shit, I took them in to true them after 200 miles, they were out of alignment by 1-2mm in 3 spots, amazing. They blow away all previous wheels I've used, in performance, weight, and maintenance.

Canyon's Wild DH Drivetrain Disconnect - Eurobike 2016
Something else is going on then. Last DH trip my chain broke on the 2nd run, it felt like I was floating on a cloud that run, the suspension was so active and alive it was amazing. And the bike was eerily quiet, I could go faster just because it was not jarring and sucking up every big and little hit with more plushness. Perhaps this system will not do anything, but whatever we can do to get as if the chain isn't there, I guarantee you everyone will switch to it quickly. It is a massive difference.

Huck Norris Anti-Pinch-Flat Insert
@meathooker: There is a huge difference of saving $65 doing DIY for this, vs saving $5 doing your own stans. If this product were $20 I think most would rather buy it, and many would try it, as it stands I doubt hardly anyone will try it, only those who suffer from an inordinate amount of pinch flats. Note there is actually no proof it works, and to what degree.
