New MTB Apparel From 100% - Interbike 2016
@Jokesterwild: MX gear, but exactly the same thing when it comes to gloves, most companies have the same gloves listed in the mx and mtb sections of the sites. I find mx brands to better quality generally. Both gloves have been lightweight, no padding, slip on gloves from each brand, so a very accurate comparison only I paid half the price for the Thor gloves

New MTB Apparel From 100% - Interbike 2016
Yeh bought a pair of their gloves and the silicone cane off the finger tips after the first ride!!! Ridiculous, the developed holes in the fingers after a couple of months, really bad quality, have been using Thor gloves for over a year and they still look nearly new!

Hey, Where Did Everybody Go? - Interbike 2016
I think this article is posted really because the editor has gone all the way to the show and is frustrated about the lack of displays, and brand presence... This is because the bike industry stopped innovating years ago, there simply isn't anything worth showing any more! 29" wheels was a purpose driven innovation, 650b was just like, "hey there's this other wheel size, lets try this, we can lie and talk total bs and say its half way between the other two sizes when in fact its only 20mm bigger than 26", then we can use some nice colourful charts with no scales or units of measurement to show how it performs nearly as well as both other sizes, lets cover up the additional flex and weight by using the word 'enduro' all over it."..... And then things just got ridiculous with making a wider tyre a 'new standard', increased axle widths because wtf why not, 'hey ive got this dinner plate, lets use it on the rear cassette', lets increase bar diameter by 3.2mm and progressively make everything 1% longer, wider and slacker every year; then lets just make everything electrical because batteries have always been so amazing.... Basically 29rs and dropper posts have been the only actual innovation I can think of in the last decade or more, there's been a few refinements, but most of its garbage that can all be thrown in the bin labelled 'enduro' IMO.

What People Are Saying - Interbike 2016
@WasabiJim: Not just the local retailer, even CRC has very hit n miss stock levels of items as there's just too many widths, diameters, lengths and variants to even count

ProShift's Automatic Electronic Shift Assist - Interbike 2016
I wonder if this system delivers the same soul crushing 'thunk' and lifeless, joy sapping melancholy that you get with automatic cars? Should be good if stuck in traffic though!

Red Bull Hardline 2016 - Results
Really great footage, good to see the whole track, especially liked the new guy Ed who commentated with Rob, much more professional and works off of Rob so much better, doesn't correct Rob all the time, doesn't talk over him, doesn't go on about how 'he would have done it', just bounces off him and delivers equally as good commentary from another angle, just how a commentating twosome should operate - When the going gets crazy or a riders having a great run, Claudio just resorts to saying "woooo" "awwww" "yeeeahh" and not actually contributing anything inciteful and Rob is left filling all the blanks on his own. Really hope Ed is on the WC circuit next year, Claudio can stick to the course previews maybe.

Over the Rainbow: Val Di Sole DH World Champs FINALS 2016
Mountain biking and warm beer (ale) were literally my cure for depression growing up in England, that and Yorkshire Tea, don't forget the Tea. When it rains 85% of the year and your local rock type is chalk, which basically turns to teflon with water on it, you get good at riding out of control!
