Replay: Red Bull Joyride - Crankworx Whistler 2016
No camera in the steep woods is a travesty. That's where this race is won/lost.

Pit Walk: EWS Round 5, Aspen-Snowmass
Looks like stripped or rounded HS bolt, or the threaded core of the star nut failed.

New Aluminum and Carbon Santa Cruz Models
When you consider that Santa Cruz tries to keep the same stiffness/strength between their carbon and alloy bikes, I imagine a comparable alloy Nomad would be a bit heavy if it has to carry a lifetime warranty and handle DH-level abuse. The complete C carbon bikes are pretty affordable now ($3800 for the new R kit), so perhaps they don't think the market would support it. I do prefer the aesthetics of alloy so I'd love to see one as well, but it has to make sense for their bottom line.

Sam Hill's Nukeproof Mega - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
Interesting that he's not running a Debonair can on the Monarch Plus. Maybe too plush? Hard to get that stiffer more playful feel he's after on the small bike?

X-Fusion Sweep RL2 Fork - Review
This times 100. Why would you review the model that's several years old when clearly the HLR is their current best option that they're producing? Seems like a waste of space, no one's buying this model, it's on closeout at all the distributors and X-Fusion can barely keep the HLR instock because its so well received. Usually PB is on top of things but this one feels pointless.

Randoms - Eurobike Media Days, Kirchberg 2016
@bman33: Second that, the adjustments actually work and the OTT neg spring tuning allows high air pressure for good support without sacrificing small bump compliance. It's a great fork.

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
@d-man: We do focus on actual issues, and by doing so have gained more access than ever before. Illegal trail use has been diminished by the building of more aggressive legal trails. We will continue focusing on those issues, but don't need a whole new issue upsetting hikers and equestrians when trail access is already delicate and hotly contested in our area.

The Final Products and People - Sea Otter 2016
@ckcost: bingo, one of the most over looked 'small bikes' out there. 140 fork, short stem, wide bar, swap to a Monarch Plus if you really want something aggressive, it can handle way more than most 5 inch bikes.

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
@WAKIdesigns: That's all I'm doing for now, and hopefully it doesn't get ugly. As I said, I know they're fun, the increased range and ability to ride to a trail is fantastic. I'm not demonizing/judging anyone for their personal choice in activity, I'd like to see everyone coexist if possible.

I Say "E-bike", You Say... - Sea Otter 2016
@WAKIdesigns: I present a cold, politcal stance against E mtb bikes. E bikes on road I don't care about, we have huge hills in the Seattle area and more people would commute on e bikes, traffic is awful so more bikes the better. I make a living selling high end MTB and I'm in an area east of Seattle that has decent trail access, my primary concern is maintaining and expanding access so more people can buy and enjoy what I'm selling. As Jude from Magura stated, it is about money, but in my region e bikes could be a threat to the growth of the mtb community. Also, if you've been following the fight over bicycle access to designated Wilderness Areas, e bikes are another bullet in the clip of the Sierra Club and other anti mtb groups intent on limiting our access wherever possible.
