50to01: Josh Bryceland's 2017 Plans - Video
@russthedog: Hardcore sure, but 2 of those tracks you mentioned have been on the calender for over 10 years with very little changed. Same lines same sections. Val di Sole is just utterly scary. He's scared. He knows what it takes to win world cups, and it's scary, both in terms of physical danger, but also the preparation and pressure.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
@sanga: That's cool. I'm stoked that the Taniwha came out well, truly. I can see where you are coming from, especially in terms of the trails that most people ride. The Taniwha is an evolution of the mountain bike, one that i think sits perfectly in the market place now. I am biased in that I ride trails that are steep, rocky and rooty all the time. I ride a Nomad, which is great, works really well, but compare that to my G27.5 (i know more travel etc etc) it's like re-writing the rule book on how a bike can handle that kind f terrain. If only the internal geared hub wasn't from a touring bike, it's not woeful, it's just not all it can be. I'd like to see the Taniwha flourish enough for Rob to be able to continue to evolve the DH bike, and hopefully bring out an alpine long travel enduro with a high pivot.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
@diggerandrider: Zerodes Taniwha looks great, really pretty. However it doesn't do what made Zerode, in my opinion great; Gear box = opportunity to run high pivot, which has to be one of the most exciting suspension layouts, bye bye braking bumps, roots, rocks or any square edged impact..... If Shimano made a light weight Alfine with 3/4 gears, and the G2.5 got a little longer, it would demolish all....

Champéry Still Open For Lift-Served Riding
Thing is, we get too defensive of our own ideals. So we begin to shade in areas to suit the opinions we have. It becomes normal to blindly follow what we think to be the truth, no matter where it comes from. The problem with doing this is it only angers and gives rise to the other side of the fence. They become frustrated and fight back. This is channeled through the media which would sell the kidneys of dying children to get a story. We need, as a human race to become much more centered and pragmatic in our approach, as shouting I'M RIGHT, only leads to cycles of Bush - Obama - Trump and so on. The climate is changing, we may or may not be able to to stop or prolong that change. But, we know we exploit resources at an alarming rate, we exploit animals to the detriment of the climate, the oil will run out, the forests will be gone, so, we need to adapt, kinda soon.

December does not mean it's going to snow just because it's Christmas and the 'ski season' starts. The calender is a human construction. There have been several years over the last century where it has not snowed at all, 64, 83. So this could just be a blip. However, oil will run out one day, it's not very clean and it can't be doing us or the planet any good.
