Hannah Report: My Passion and Women in Sport
There's a lot of truth in your statement. But I do think pressure on young girls is higher, and girls tend to be more insecure...(they normally do think a lot more about stuff than the average guy does) And while feminism is often pictured questionable in the media, ranging from men hating to the picture of a neoliberal career woman, it's not the reason for this. It's simply the search for a solution for half the problem that is sexism. Because nowadays it just doesn't work anymore to tell someone, boy or girl, to be like this or that... I don't want to start the internet hype about her on PB, but Emma Watson's UN speech on that issue simply is brilliant.

richie seems to be a rather quiet guy and to fit character wise very well into the EWS I recall him saying he likes his new direction because he rides his bike far more than in DH

most tire profiles just aren't made to be stretched out by these ultra wide rims. the profile becomes squared and edge control becomes terrible...

Specialized S-Works Enduro 650B - Review
reading all these comments from people eagerly waiting to buy a YT from all over the world I wonder everytime why they always seem to equalize YT with all these premium companies... having seen and ridden YT bikes often I can assure you, there is a difference. mostly build quality. they also have a lot of quality issues during first model launches... after buying a Yeti (first with a lot of hesitation because of the price) and I held the frame in my hands for the first time, this difference occurred to me. the haptics, details and beauty are a different world than YT (and even speci, giant etc.) and you do get "more" for your money. is it a lot more? is it worth it? from a rational perspective, probably not. but I just love it. I couldn't go back. BUT, in all fairness: looking at specialized frames, they are nowhere near the haptics of a Yeti and so it is just more irrational to ask for this price... these mass produced frames are all very similar ragarding haptics and details. same goes for the car analogy: when you have driven or even just sat in a porsche, beemer or merc you suddenly realize the quality. and you start to appreciate it.

To Catch A Saboteur
signs were put up to warn all users of these trail networks, including hikers, dog owners and riders. the local media did some reports, too. @zire: theres a lot of truth about your statement regarding these old guards. but more generally, mountainbikers are not very well regarded in the german public. in the south west it's even forbidden to ride trails narrower than 2m, and even after a petition with more than 50000 signatures and hundreds of discussions over several years the government decided not change anything.

To Catch A Saboteur
In germany there are hundreds of cases like this. On our local trails everything from logs, whole trees and even bed of nails where placed. the police was informed but they did not start any investigations. sometimes forest officials sabotage our trails by digging holes. yes, these trails aren't that legal, but either way this is a criminal act that can lead to serious injuries or even death. In another region there was even piano wire set up (head high). It was only discovered because some dude was crazy enough to pedal up this trail, so nothing happened. in this case, an old guy was caught red handed and charges were pressed against him.
