First Look: Alchemist's Radical Carbon Wheels - Eurobike 2015
I like the idea of externally accessible nipples but the rim would be stronger with a less angular mold. Good idea, sub-optimal execution. Also, why use straight pull spokes but then design the hub such that they have to be bent anyway? With a custom hub for straight pull spokes there should be zero spoke bend.

Is it allowed to jump over a taped section as long as you don't break the tape?

There must have been one or more productions runs that had serious problems with de-laminating layers. The reports of this are widespread. Not sure how they're handling it though. Bad production runs happen to every company. What matters is how they handle the situation for customers who received bad product. We'll see...

The guy at 1:07 shows you what happens when you don't make it and get bucked by the 3rd hump. That's pretty much how i'd do it.

TOW is one of my favorite trails. But roughest? Not really. Rough but not roughest. It's a perfect trail for a trail bike. DH bikes are a bit too sluggish for twisty singletrack like this.

Rider POVs: Windham DH World Cup
Chest mounts make it harder to see the track because the chest moves around much more than the head. Heads are like a steady-cam mount.Absorbing shock through the neck and keeping a constant viewing angle. On the other hand chest mounts do give a better indication of the roughness of the track and what's going on with the bike handling. You can either see the track well or experience the riding well, not both.

PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
I too destroy bottom brackets in less than a season. It doesn't matter which brand or design. It has to do with riding through mud and streams on nearly every ride. They quickly lose their grease, get contaminated with grit and are constantly being abused from high torque pedaling in a high gear up steep/short hills. The bearings just don't last. Bottom brackets are wear components that must be routinely replaced. For that reason I don't buy frames with press fit bottom brackets. Press fit interfaces simply do not withstand repeated bearing installation and removal.
