2014 Photo of the Year - Semi Finals Voting Starts Now
Its even less impressive when you see what went into it, and how many takes were done. Not to say it's not a cool photo, it's just not as cool as the rest. From whats left, Christoph Laue, hands down. Good composition and timing, and resonates well for excitement with brendawg throwing down.

Shimano’s Official Di2 XTR Launch
Looks like the butthurt crowd is out in full force. I guess 12 year olds have a lot to learn about how shitty wireless controls actually are. @iffy , you are right. But that won't change for a while. Got to milk the cow for what it's worth, first.

I like wires. Wireless just adds a potential issue where many people with any experience programing could hack into the signal via a cell phone and start shifting their friends bikes as well. Or worse, a competitor. It's not complicated at all, and done currently with other devices on wireless and Bluetooth. Every single high performance system, the world over, uses wires and redundancy to perform it's tasks within itself. For instance, a military drone has several redundant signals for control and feedback (using a GPS satellite AND a military communications satellite), and ZERO wireless control for the systems within itself. Same for F1, same for Jets, same for really anything: the mechanical/electrical systems are all driven via a wired signal, because it's the most reliable and not susceptible to outside influence. Wireless shifting is just a gimmick for people who don't know any better. http://defensesystems.com/articles/2014/08/15/drones-can-hack-wifi-networks.aspx

Spotted: Prototype Maxxis Minion Semi-Slick Tire
" now it looks like Maxxis is getting ready to re-join the fray" FTFY Teehee (I'm just teasing, because you probably owned a pair of HRSS's at some point) That said, how did you find the transition to side lugs? With the HRSS the lugs were fairly low so it felt similar to a HR worn a bit, but these look a lot taller, so curious to know how it feels. Regardless it's been a long time coming for us who ride harder packed trails.

" now it looks like Maxxis is getting ready to join the fray" Mike, since you're new to mountain biking, you should know Maxxis had the HR SS about decade ago. ;-) (Can still find them on Dunbar too! Albeit in that antiquated 26" size we used before your time)

Good for them for forming a team themselves to keep together. All three of them bring a lot to the table as far as marketability are concerned, and it must make things easier for everyone that they are all on the same team and able to share it together. Remember, it's their team. They are the ones in control of that.
