Pinkbike Awards: Trail / All-Mountain Bike of the Year Nominees
I haven't ridden any for sure, but I wagered that the Capra would be the bike to beat for bike of the year, and I'm disappointed that it's not nominated.

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
Read a review somewhere that compared their experience on the S-Works Enduro 29, compared to their previous riding experience, to be like moving to a 450 4-stroke, from a 250 2-stroke. If MX borrowed from MTB, I wonder if forum nerds would have their minds blown if a tweener-size between 250F and 450 were introduced and heavily marketed like 650b/27.5.

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
From the first few lines, I was thinking: do people want incremental progress or "new standards"? What I want is to not spend more money for the higher levels of fun, reliability, aesthetics, comfort, performance, etc. that I desire.

Course Preview: Pinnacle DH With Sik Mik and Cous Cous
At least it looks less boring than flat track racing. I guess the racers have to keep a cool mind and be lucky that some immature jerk doesn't collide with them stupidily while trying to pass, especially around one of the taped off chicanes that seem designed to cause a traffic jam. Rain would make things much more interesting for sure. Amateurs that don't know how to use the front brake would make it interesting too. Maybe Mammoth can learn something from this and start their kamikaze race with 4 racing at once.

I admit zooming up to catch a better glimpse of that composite fiber-based "air shock" in pinkbike's photo.

Day 4 Randoms - Interbike 2014
I discovered that the GoPro acts as a frame stop if you fall off your bike, using that under the bar mounting style. The plastic housing's mounting took the brunt of the force and snapped, and a drop of superglue (cyanoacrylate), didn't fix it solidly enough for me. My top tube ended up with a tiny whitish ding. I prefer a body mounted camera angle to the handlebar angle anyways. Not a problem if you're using it on a drop handlebar... I guess it's for the roadies and I was foolish for using it on a mtb.

Ellsworth, Kappius, ENVE - Interbike 2014
29+ is a term for bikes and forks designed to have enough clearance for 3.0" wide tires on a 29er rim. Since the 29x3.0 inflates to a diameter much bigger than 29" , they call it 29+.

World Champs 2014 - Hafjell - Photo Epic Day 2
Shame about Bernard Kerr not making it, despite a few recent top 20s. British Airways losing his bike was a bummer too. I would've put him on my Fantasy team for this race, if he were in it. A lot of strong contenders able to take the men's win, but I feel Loic Bruni might lay down an amazing run. I wouldn't be surprised if Matt Simmonds put out a medal winning performance. I'd actually be excited if any of the guys who haven't won a Championship yet (junior's doesn't count), takes the win. How's Gee looking? He looked to be in top form, about on par with Sam Hill, and he hasn't gotten all beat up this year.
