All Stories End, Trek World Racing - Video
Sure because the Men's slopestyle and women's XC bike segment are huge. Having viewed the level of comments it seems that most Pinkbike followers think of anything other than mountain biking when ever there is an article on Emily Batty. And personally, having watched Brandon train and compete for years, including 8 Crankworx live, whilst I am full of admiration for his style and incredible ability, the thought "Oh I might go and buy a Trek bicycle" has never crossed my mind.

2016 Yeti Trans NZ and Trans BC - Sold Out
@n1ck. There is a wait list. Event rules prevent the on selling of entries. If someone can't make it the people on the wait list get priority.

GT Bicycles and Atherton Racing Part Ways
@sin0428 Except as a Pro athlete you are interacting with your public at races so you need to find a balance. If you can't handle the public duties of being a psonsored athlete there are a 100 other athletes that would love your deal just champing to take your place. If you are out due to a mechanical and walking you are not racing (although there is a good chance you could slip and die walking down Hardline!!) so it is not hard to wave back or say a quick "thank you". It is the fans that buy stuff so that sponsors can pay the athletes. A nod and a quick "thanks" or "hello" could be the difference between them purchasing your brand and another brand (who's athlete did stop and say hello or sign something) when they come to choose their next bike. Worth thinking about. Oh and I understand the face thing, some of us are just born with a serious face, even more serious when we are concentrating. I certainly do not make that mistake when I see photos of Gee, he is one of those people who could be having his own personal best day and still have a serious face. That said personally I have found the Athertons to at least be polite when they were at Crankworx and I have seen Gee smile when they were arsing around at the team truck!

RaceWare Garmin Edge Stem Mount - Review
@Dmitry81. That's odd as a friend just had an Edge 800 with a cracked screen refurbed by Garmin for $105 which is a pretty reaonable price for the damage.

RaceWare Garmin Edge Stem Mount - Review
K-Edge hinged version does the same thing for less $ and it has a replaceable insert for wear and tear and crashes.

Commencal is Hiring
T2R shut up shop here in Whistler a couple of summers ago. Don't know the facts behind the decision. All sorts of rumours.

First Look: Northwave Enduro Mid Shoes
Not true, Hans Rey often used to wear two watches when he was sponsored by Swatch and they were pushing the 'colours of Benetton' plastic casual watches.

Ask Pinkbike: Fitting a Shock Upgrade, Brake Lever Angles and Is There a Bike for Everything
Arm pump is more likely to come from using grips that are too fat for the size of one's hand rather than grips that are too skinny. Grips that are too skinny tend to create ulna nerve problems or flexor tendon problems at the metacarpophalangeal joint. Best grips ever: ESI Racer (but they explode if you crash on them). Best grips that last: Ergon GE1 Slim (single inner lock ring/ ergo shape).
