Pinkbike Tech: SWAT Your Bike
@bananowy: weigh your pack next time, you might be surprised. Most packs weigh somewhere Around 1.5-2lbs, and 3L of water is 6.5lbs. My base pack weighs 14lbs with water. That's before I start adding additional food. That is with a pump, tape, ties, tubes (each one is a 1/2lb) small bits to get the bike rolling, first aid kit, tools, and personal items like your phone, ID and "safety kit". That doesn't include items I'd throw in for more of a "backcountry epic". ie: a light, safety blanket, extra food, light rain jacket, etc. That all very easily adds up, and why my pack stays at home unless I'm venturing somewhere I don't know, or I need to carry extra gear. My fanny pack or SWAT bib (especially during the summer) gets pulled out for anything near town, where I'm no more than an hours walk away from any road. I use a platypus soft bottle to stash extra water in the center pocket of my bib that gives me 2.5liters between my 2 bottles and cold water right against my back (So Nice!) and minimize what I carry. I can get my backpacking gear down to 20lbs-ish, but that doesn't include anything to repair and maintain a bicycle in the woods.

Finals Results - Leogang DH World Cup 2016
@rrsport: the top 20 are live. Each rider goes down in 1 minute intervals up until that point, 3 min after for the top 20. So if a top 20 rider flats 2 min into his run, I don't to watch him crawl down the mountain, for a 5 min run, when the next rider left the gate 2 min ago, and the entire top section (which is usually filmed) is completely unseen by the viewer. This happened many times where only select riders did we see the fresh-cut section. They even back-played footage we didn't see for a rider's replay. This is even easier with the 1 minute intervals, as the cameras are always rolling, and footage is already captured, just add it into the already edited footage. I really think it's a lack of use of available resources and poor cameramen. How many times have we missed an important part of the race, because the camera man was creeping on some girl in the crowd, or his is camera pointed at the ground? Minnaar's mistake in the rocks this last weekend is the perfect example. We missed it entirely, but the footage was rolled back to a different camera after his run to show it because the cameraman that should have captured it had his cam pointed off somewhere random in the woods.

Or use the packaging your tires come in when new, Maxxis is best. Cut those up into a few different shaped squares .

Those who have never ridden a decent length ride at a steady pace without a pack, will continue to say the pack works just fine. Your back stays cooler, your pack doesn't move around on your back, your stuff is more organized and easy to reach first go, and you don't have a sore back, numb hands, and sore shoulders from supporting 15-20lbs on your back. I still use a pack especially for rides I'm unfamiliar with terrain or for LONG days. For most of my shorter rides though, less than 2-3 hrs, and shorter in the summer, I would prefer to go without.

Use a ski strap to hold your tube and levers to the frame. Most also have a padded section that is easy on the paint.

Just to add further confusion, this was an old BMX DH track from back in the day, that was featured in a MTB film! https://vimeo.com/1795049

They even used to use a line cam for the motorway jumps. That's one camera. Now there are 4 or 5 just to cover that one section. Complete waste of resources. To add, if a rider chrashes or has a mechanical and is out of contention, go back up the hill and show the next rider. Don't waste air time to show a rider with a flat putt down the hill while I'm missing the next riders first 2 splits.

Pivot Switchblade - First Look
@El-Train: some people use their weight in support of the abuse they will exert on a bicycle part and will equal it to the abuse a more aggressive rider can do. In a lot of cases this is a false view as I have had plenty of Clydesdales tell me a set of Stan's Flows are plenty stiff and strong, and have lasted them years. I only weigh 150, 160 as of more recent, and every Flow I've ridden is a noodle in comparison to others comparable rims, and I've destroyed 3 usually in a few months time. The same goes for any non-DH Specialized tire- soft, flexy, not-durable.
