Schwalbe 27+ tires - Is this the new standard?
For a start 650b is not 27.5", its only about 3/4" bigger than 26" and feels almost unnoticeably different to 26", secondly, fat tyres weigh a sh!t ton and have massive rolling resistance. If you want to have a slow, heavy bike with tons of unsprung weight, poor acceleration and crap manoeuvrability which will likely result in you being knackered after climbing the first hill and then stacking on the downhill as you're too tired to lift the cumbersome front wheel over jumps/obstacles then choose 650b+ This new standard is ridden by almost no one and is pure marketing trash and its getting really tiring!

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
Sorry @sino428, forgot where I was for a second - you're also not supposed to put decals on your helmet for the reason that the glue may react with the plastic shell and make it brittle/soft... But the idea of nuclear holocausts occuring and lethal go-pro-jectiles punching holes in spectators faces is a much more real concern... On that note, spectators should be allowed to have chains on their chainsaws in the crowd!

UCI Amends Rule on the Use of Onboard Cameras
Even if the camera breaks off, the remaining part of the mount acts as a pressure point on the helmet and can pierce/crack the shell or compress the eps liner excessively in one spot, concentrating impact pressure on one part of the head rather than dissipating the force like a helmet is supposed to. The mount can also hook-up in the ground instead of letting the helmet slide, essentially causing a reverse effect of what Mips technology is trying to reduce. Massive rotational impacts to the brain.

10 for 10 - #2 Aaron Gwin
The bible clearly states that god only affects things for his divine purpose, winning downhill races or any other sport has nothing to do with that and attesting victory to such insults all the sick and dying people on earth. also Christ stated all praise should be to his father in heaven not to him... I admire Gwins faith but he could do with reading the lords word a bit more

FOX Announces Kabolt 15mm Axle
Wow Sram and Fox marketing depts have been working overtime on this one, they've both released the same piss poor design, it has no expanding collet or pinch bolts on the legs and so has nothing to clamp the axle to the legs... So it will be about as stiff as a wet noodle or 9mm qr axles. I guess it is April fools though

Brosnan's constant beaming smile, absolute professionalism and sportsmanship is a credit to himself, his sponsors and the sport of downhill - not to mention he's a ballistic missile on a dh bike
