11 Questions with Nicholi Rogatkin
I respect Rogatkin for not doing something just because everyone else is. Some people think he isn't cool because he isn't a conformist. Whatever.

Video: Fall in Colorado's Elk Mountains
The slow mo manual shots showed some completely scarless shins. These guys must have been clipped in since birth.

Commencal Meta Hip Hop - Review
lol. Medacus, why so pissed off? I never saw that a mud guard was offered and it wasn't mentioned in the article. No need to downvote comments simply because they mention a mud guard being absolutely necessary with a shock mounted where this one is. Chill out and realize that some people here are honestly discussing the topic of a mud guard.

Commencal Meta Hip Hop - Review
Oh, so there's a mud guard. That's something the review should at least mention. The bike is worthless to many people without one. Seeing photos is also critical. The mud around here is clay based and can pack so tightly that it locks up the wheel.

Video: Does the Size of the Park Matter?
What's the song? Shazam is failing me and it isn't in the credits.

Commencal Meta Hip Hop - Review
Location of the shock makes it not suitable for riding around here. The shock would be ruined almost immediately with mud and rocks embedded in mud. A mud guard, if one exists, could help but that would cut down on clearance. Better to just get a frame that doesn't expose the shock to mud build-up.

Life in the Loops - Empty Pockets
Riding without a phone is a needless risk in my book. A friend broke his femur a couple years ago in a remote location of a local park. This is a life threatening injury. It is easy to bleed to death internally from such a break. Even with an immediate call to 911, it took hours to get him to a hospital. First a stretcher was needed to carry him to an ATV trail. There he was put on an ATV and driven to a gravel road. A truck took him from that gravel road to a waiting helicopter. Without a phone, he might be dead.

Oh. So pushing the pistons back in is why. Makes sense. I've got a lot of random tools in my shop. One of those is just a 6 inch long thin piece of steel that I use to push the pistons back without wheel removal. After the old pads are out, the thin bar of steel fits between the rotor and piston. Both thumbs press against the caliper body while finger pull on the steel bar. Takes like 10 seconds. Probably easier for most people to just remove the wheel though.

Yeah, what's with removing the wheel? Is there a reason for that with top loaded pads ?
