Gore Bike Wear Power Trail 2in1 Shorts+ - Review
@slimboyjim: It sounds like we (or should I say 'wee') are both disappointed. I am a 'baggies' kinda guy that wears bibs under because I find them more comfortable and especially less likely to snag. So these are merely two items sewn together. Had they truly incorporate both, they would have had at least two sales from me.

Gore Bike Wear Power Trail 2in1 Shorts+ - Review
Does the bib open at the front where the short's zip is? Essentially, do I still have to get into some sorta yoga position in order to take a leak? Did I not read this properly?

BikeYoke Presents Revive Dropper
I am on my seventh Giant post and they too have all been reliable. Obviously I haven't owned any of them for over a year, but they do get hammered in that year. I have noticed the coating rub off on the really wet Winter we just had but I'm going to put that down to laziness on my part. If I purchased a bike other than a Giant I'd shove a Giant dropper on it, in a flash.

Giro, Scott and Alpinestars: New Women's Gear - Interbike 2016
If you are wearing those sparkly shoes, just tap your heels together three times and say "There's no place like Whistler. There's no place like Whistler..."

What People Are Saying - Interbike 2016
You only need to know how much you weigh to easily get baseline values. I weigh 72 kg which is 160 lbs: Fork pressure = 72 psi (the same number as my weight in kilos). Shock pressure = 160 psi Rear tire pressure = weight in lbs divided by 7 = 23 psi. Front tire pressure = rear tire pressure minus 3 psi (as per Graves, Peaty, Hill, and common sense). At such values you should come close to bottoming out on big hits, close to dinging rims. Aggressive/experienced riders add 10% to all values. Super aggro or hitting berms real hard add 20%. DH/enduro bikes add 10% to fork pressure. For rocky terrain use a bit more pressure in tires. Fat or plus tire presure... I don't know yet.

Outdoor Demo Randoms - Interbike 2016
@troyleedesigns: you speak the truth, so perhaps the time is ripe for a paid ad on pinkbike showing those items.

Outdoor Demo Randoms - Interbike 2016
@WAKIdesigns: I've noticed that the more 'roadie' (tight Lycra, brand names everywhere) I look the worse I get treated by drivers. The more casual you look the more car-friendly you look.

Hey, Where Did Everybody Go? - Interbike 2016
Agreed. The Rohloff lasts tens of thousands of miles and it doesn't have to.

Final Results - EWS Round 7: Valberg, France
@MtbSince84: it's not 3 out of 21 if there were no pros racing on flats. We could say that 100% of pros who used flats were on the podium.
