Maxxis' New Rubber - Taipei Show 2015
I am rather concerned how fast my shortys wear. trails are starting to dry up and there are a few hardpack/loose over hard corners and the cornering lugs are starting to show serious wear after 3 rides. center thread is fine though (because i don't brake...lol)

Maxxis' New Rubber - Taipei Show 2015
reminds me of a purgatory. maybe that was the intention. I think a 3c purg would be great. I think 1 and 2 compound tires roll way slower that 3c and purg is 2c.

Maxxis Shorty Tire - Review
Butcher controls in the front but i would like a slightly more railing feel so minions dhf are on my list to try. Back i liked purgatorys but mainly tractionwise they could be better. Trying ardents 2.4 now and though they seem to corner well despite needing a bit higher pressures to avoid squirming. I am curous about 2.3 ikons but doubting, else minion dhr ii seems a safe bet.

Maxxis Shorty Tire - Review
Found out shorty side knobs wear fast on hardpack sections. Not a good all year tire in my opinion. Strictly winter goop for me.

The B-Side: It's About the Riding, Not the Soft Tissue
I am all for equal treatment/opportunities. But where does it really make sense to have m/f specific products? Is it just marketing? Or fashion? Or really anatomically advisable? Because i think where necessary or desirable ok but else there is a big potential to create issues and complications where there are none. M/F specific saddles? Frames? Shifters? Cables? You get where i am going.

Interview: Christoph Laue - Photo of the Year
I know, i am a nitpicker here but would it not have been even nicer if the lip was a bit visible and not covered up by the guys hand? Like one ms earlyer or later? ; )

Inside Maloja - Creating Clothing With a Difference
I don't think they are hip, a bit to hippie for me, at least the styling. The garments are surely different but to tell the truth i don't think any cycling gear is truly nice like i would wear it off the bike too. The most iconic is rapha. At least graphically their stuff is clean. They did a collaboration with paul smith that was quite nice but oh so unaffordable but otherwise, hmmm. Like there is no concept about how modern cycling/mtb gear has to look to look nice. It's either moto or skate or road/retro road or urban oriented. Just think in a fashion way about it instead of quoting other sports and then make it functional. Maybe Maloja does that but then they quote oilily-style flower power hippies 60s-70s. Bah! It's for german girls. Have Yogi Yamamoto or Comme des Garcons do mtb gear or Raf Simons. Like even all those superexpensive ones like Acre supplies or Kitsbow, material and workmanship top notch but taking 'reduced' to boring. And well TLD and such are just too garish/moto. I really suffer every time i have to buy new stuff to the point that i now take the cheapest that works (usually endura) because money spent on any kind of 'style' is wasted in cycling clothing. For roadies it's easier, they are function over style anyway so don't need to care how you look, just buy assos or those other italian brands that make you look like an alien. Grrr, i am working myself into a rant! Ok maybe giro Alpineduros are ok. Retro and not looking like bike stuff, just some clean outdoor boot. But thats it. Their laced road shoes were also clean but too road-retro for any other use.

Check Out - March
And it is made in such a way that it is not really intended to replace the battery when it is empty (took one year witjh weekly measurements). You can replace it but it is awkward to take the thing apart and some minor stuff inside breaks. Mine worked afterwards for another year. Then broke (shows silly values). To bleed air you have to take it off the valve, bleed by hand, hold the button 2sec to reset it and attach it again. Quite a fuss. I went to analogue gauge.
