Pedal with Pros Down the Red Bull Joyride Course - Video
That was horrible to watch. No more of that. No more scribd. No more redbull low resolution videos... Can we just get back to normal videos and content please?

The Drop Tower of Destruction - Video
@Jubbylinseed: spiders won't go away just like 26 hasn't gone away. There is a difference in mass and with a good drive train you might not "feel" it but there is a difference in accelerating a heavier weight. (Learnt that one in scoop back in the day).what tune difference would it make on a trail bike... who knows, I have tested many things but never had an interest in testing that. Have smashed 2 race face crank sets with a bash ring on, snapping the tabs clean off though, ending my ride. At least a bent iscg tab or fixing bolt you can bend it back or remove the cranks and chain guide and bend the chain guide back. With the mozartt chain guide (can't speak for the latest one but the WOG certainly) you have to worry about neither pretty much as they have designed out the issue mostly.

@raph11: Yes, and I have bent 224 mounts, IH Sunday mounts and Mk3 V10 mounts along with many bolts bent which are then a pain to get out. The bash guard is normally best designed with a waffle in it to dissipate the load. Anyone can cut a piece of good solid plastic and show that it doesn't break, the key to good design is to have good input requirements, system requirements, sub system requirements, trace matrix from requirements to design verification testing, good test methods, TMV, DVT, etc. etc.

High Above Cascadia Hip Pack - Review
I love a bum bag. To be honest though I find a lycra top and my waterproof gilet with pockets even better. I wonder when we will see the return of the frame bag... enduro specific, that sits low on your bike? It's funny how for many things the function that was around in the 80's is coming back again, to replace the fashion of the last 15 years.

Pit Walk: EWS Round 5, Aspen-Snowmass
It's funny that as dh moves to more and more air shocks, enduro moves to more coil shocks.

Five Ten Sam Hill 3 Shoes - Review
Agreed. The sole delamination is a huge pain in the ass. I have 4 sets of delaminate 5.10. I need to take them to the local shoe shop to see if they can sort them out.

Bike Yoke Cable Conversion for Reverb Dropper Posts
@TheR: no idea how old my reverb is. Must be 4 or 5 years. Still working. Don't use it that often though. Too many bikes to be out on my all mountian bike every week.
