Snapshot: Examining the UCI's Changes to World Cup DH Racing
@thestigmk1: so the new rules have a greater chance of diluting the quality of the field. In other words, there are too many people from individual nations and a federation can now buy a place on the WC. Would that be the UCI looking for a way to make money at the expense of the quality of the field. Sounds like Dh is following the football WC. Shame really but it's the way.

Propain Dirt Zelvy 2017 Rider Announcement
Great to see another couple of local boys on WC teams. 2 national champions up here and a few Scottish too :) Greg, Kenta and now Henry and George. Well done to all the boys. One day we might get a race somewhere nearby.... nah, all of our tracks don't have finish pits, parking areas and uplift.

Off-Season with Leigh Johnson - Video
I stayed with Roost over Christmas, Mal and Soph are just lovely, the trails are awesome out there too. I had the pleasure of riding the Marin Attack Trail for a day whilst I was out there (was waiting for a new mech for my mega) and was blown away by how well the bike climbed and it went down really well too. There was no pedal kick back on the technical sections at all. It may not be the best looking frame out there but when you are riding it and it performs like it does, who cares.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
I only have over 20 years experience as a senior development engineer in R&D so I have no idea how anything works. Who sets the R&D budget... (don't even start me at the moment) I race too and do ok at that for my age so have no idea of what works on a bike. Please educate me.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
The gearbox and the mountian bike for mass market is just not an option. The additional drag for 1 is a show stopper. Then add the additional weight, the lack of being added to change a cassette for your ride and the need for some kind of chain tensioner and you have 4 big reasons why it just doesn't work. They may work for or an ebike with a bit of design refinement but that costs lots of money. Just stick with however many gears you choose to ride on a traditional drive train for the foreseeable future.

What's the Perfect Tire Width For All-Around Riding? - Pinkbike Poll
No such thing as all around riding. Ride what suits the terrain where you are. Same goes for the wheels you use.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Casings, BB Compatibility, and Body Position
I have never done that body position exercise, am I missing out? will it make me faster just standing on my bike? Body position is about form, balance and core stability. Without all 3 (core stability being the most important) there is no point. At no point is it about holding the same position for 2 minutes! Just saying and I am an OK rider.
