Endless Biking: Where Have All the Ladies Gone?
What I am implying is that they need to make dh bikes in size extra small. If you offer an alternative paint scheme for female riders you will sell more bikes. In the last five years, the number of women on the trail has risen greatly as the availability of serious female specific bikes has increased.

Endless Biking: Where Have All the Ladies Gone?
So there are a couple of things going on here: 1. Change is coming, I see more and more families mountain biking here in Marin County, this is why we have high school leagues across the entire state of CA. I would argue that the mountian bike is great equalizer between the sexes. Especially, now that bike manufacturers figured out if you make bikes for females, they will buy them and ride them. Which leads me to my second point: there needs to be DH and female specific mountain bikes if you truly want that segment to grow. As for me, downhill racing was a 5 hour wait for a 4 minute ride...

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
The next big innovation is addition by subtraction: Eliminate existing wheel sizes. Eliminate existing drive trains. Eliminate existing axle sizes. And electric suspenison and shifting seems to be at the polar opposite of why most people go riding in the first place. If only we could eliminate riding with ear buds in and Strava KOM's

Thank you pink bike for reminding us of what is important in life: getting out for a ride and helping each other out.

Top Three Finds - Interbike 2014
I don't know that I could ever feel comfortable with oval chain rings. Much like the lefty fork, looks matter. If it looks or feels weird, you are much less likely to feel comfortable riding it. Plus, as a kid growing up with bio pace, I seem to remember that it did climb better but it felt uneven ( sort of a power on/ power off crank rotation) when ever you upped the rpm on the cranks: flat riding and downhill.

Video: Blowing Out The Lead With Palmer
I am very curious to see what comes of this. Palmer and Lopes on the same team could make some really good things happen for Intense. I do like the moves Intense is making: new bike, new riders, new coach. They're taking chances, which is a good thing for the sport.

Answer, Knolly, Nicolai - Eurobike 2014
Explain to me how making a bike heavier at the wheels( by increasing from 26"-27.5) makes it climb better? E13 proved just the opposite yesterday.

Riding Jared Graves' Prototype Yeti SB6c
Good read, more articles like this one please. I too run my Fox fork at 70lbs. Jared Graves is really starting to transcend the sport beyond racing. By letting a journalist test ride his actual bike, he is putting himself into the realm of legends like Tomac, Cunningham, Garcia and Hans Rey.

Ladies Get To Downieville In September
This is a great place to ride. I have been there three times ( including once this year) and intend to go again next year. But more importantly: events like this are growing the sport. In the last five years I have seen more females that are riding serious bikes, on real trails and hauling @ss, than in my first fifteen years combined. When it comes to trail access, there is strength in numbers.
