Interview: Mark Weir - Back in Action
McNugs, did you see this article? Don't know if it'll work for sidewall issues, but one of the ghetto fixes is mentioned in the comments: use a small length of spoke to poke small strips of shredded cotton t-shirt into your puncture hole. It's basically a poor man's tire plug. Thanks for asking the original question, by the way. I was wondering, too....

Video: Sam Pilgrim's MTB Fails
I actually thought this was hilarious. If you're not able to relish Sam's profundity, articulation, and measured, dramatic delivery then you've been sucking the contemporary entertainment industry's nipple for, like, too long. The whole reason why this is so funny is because Sam's such a talented rider, but his media persona is sheepish. It's like the Harley Davidson slogan: "If I have to explain you wouldn't understand." Please keep delivering these, Sam, if only to entertain me and a handful of others!

Must Watch: Road Bike Freestyle
I can't stand these videos. Trials riders can do their magic on anything, so that they're doing it on a roadbike is different, but not much more than that. An example is the fixie crowd. They can do neat and impressive things, but that doesn't make it cool. It's like doing a bunch of technical flip-trick stuff on a penny skateboard. You might be able to, but why would you? Like, bomb the hill or do major slides! A cool road bike video would include mega lean angles and major speed in an urban environment, where that speed would get you some foot-out/foot-up sliding and some air, like the famous pic of that road rider boosting air going over that bridge. I'm not going to argue with you guys. I've NOT said these riders aren't talented, I've only said I can't stand these videos. I know I'm not the only one.

Mudhugger Mudguards Now Available in US and Europe
Blah, blah, blah. It's a matter of personal taste. Having ridden in Ottawa winter snow/salt, Georgia red clay, and other muddy areas I am very much a fan of fenders. It's just a matter of adapting them to suspension designs and making them wide and rigid enough to be functional. Yes, I'm a fooking prima donna, and yes, I don't like getting mud up my backside, all over my Camelback, all over my car, all over my rug at home, nor in my washing machine. That Georgia red clay stains, too. Now go cry to your momma how someone didn't care about your "I'm muddier and therefore manlier" line.

We have a very sticky clay mud in southern California, here in the US, that looks similar to this. It will easily double the weight of your bike, and it is extremely hard to wash off. You would think that you could let it harden, and then it would crack and fall off, but since it's clay, it just adheres that much more when it dries! Nasty stuff.

Hi Rob, Did you get this based on my plug that I made in the Oneup Components product review?

What I said is that there IS a need for cooling devices. Not everyone can handle heat as well as others. I have actually had the privilege of getting heat stroke, and I can tell you that "sweating it out" only works when you're in arid climes. When it's humid you're toast. By the way, heat stroke might not kill you, but it can incapacitate you enough that unless you have someone to help you you're in deep shit. You can get to the point where you can't even walk.

You can laugh at Skeletor in his cooling vest, up there, but there IS a need for cooling devices. If you ride in arid climates like the Phoenix desert you can mist yourself, but then you also have to carry the extra water. But, if you ride in the humid south, like Atlanta, evaporative cooling is a no-go, and a cooling vest makes perfect sense. I've ridden in both places and keeping cool during the summer is no joke. Of course, $198 is way out there.... Chinese version coming to Ebay soon for $19.99.
