Muc-Off Launch Athlete Protection Range
"The range includes a Luxury Warm Up Cream formulated to allow your legs to work at an optimum level of effectiveness with an intelligent heating system, which can control the temperature it provides to you" Embrocriation creams (i.e. deep heat and similar "sports warm up") have recently been found to be complete B.S. in terms of having any effect on athletic performance. See the recent programme by BBC "The Truth About..your medicine cabinet" hosted by Dr Chris Van Tulleken.

Pinkbike Poll: Re-cycling?
Running a busy bicycle workshop I am always shocked at the amount of waste we produce predominantly from assembling new bikes from boxes for customers: - we are talking cardboard boxes, cardboard inserts in the boxes, plastic bags, foam lagging (that protects frame tubes), string, and zip ties. We retain most of the plastic bags, and if careful cutting the zip ties they can kept; as they are very useful in the future and at least are being re-used rather than heading straight to the refuse dump. The cardboard is all recycled using a waste contractor. The shop itself also puts out a lot of packaging waste from incoming deliveries from suppliers, as well as packaging removed from products bought by customers. Bicycle servicing generally produces a much smaller volume of waste, which would typically be worn parts like brake pads, tires, chain, perhaps a wheel or some chainrings. We have a metal collector who collects this FOC as metal has scrap value in the UK, unlike rubber tires. No one wants the rubber, it has no value. So it goes in the refuse :(

Legit, Commencal, Mongoose - Sea Otter 2015
the DP420 is a low strength epoxy adhesive which would allow removal of the cups once shot. Not too hard either, using a Park rocket or similar tool. It was a real f*ck up though, and I noticed later frames (2015) started coming with aluminium alloy cups instead of the nylon cups we worked with!
