The Rise Of Enduro - Movie Trailer
I think almost all of the discomfort people feel towards "enduro" comes from the obnoxious marketing (like this film) associated with it, just like you say. And the fact that this movie looks like it's gonna blow... and not in a good way.

What Tyler Found at Indoors - Interbike 2014
Sam's right, the Tundras suck fuel down incredibly fast. They're really nicely finished trucks, but F-150s and Chevy 1500s use way less gas to get you where you're going. Too bad we can't get the smaller diesel crew cabs that the rest of the world gets. Like the new Ford Ranger, or some of the Mitsubishi ones. They go forever on a tank, and hold just as much stuff as one of these.

Epic set of photos. This is why I'd love to go to one of these things. Too bizarre!

That chain's on it's last sharpen, but it looks sharp, and the rakers have been taken down enough that it'll still cut like a hot knife through butter.

Schwalbe, Canyon, KS - Eurobike 2014
I read somewhere that 23mm is the minimum width for Procore. So I hope it works with every rim that's wider, or at least up to 30mm or so.

Course Preview: World Cup DH in Meribel
Aha! Finally a subject I know a lot about! The real cost of a heli would be a lot higher than people think. First, you'd use an A-star B2 or B3 for about $2500/hr at least (since you need a heli like that for a cineflex). Europe is probably more than that. And lots of heli places have a 3 hour minimum, so you're at $7500 min for a heli. Then, in order to track the riders with any accuracy, you'll need a cineflex. That's $6000 if you can find one locally, and much more than that if you have to get it from further away. Then you're gonna need a very nice long range HD transmitter and receiver, which rents for $2000/day, if you can find it locally. Additionally, you'd want someone from production in the heli helping with spotting and communication, and you'd have someone from production co-ordinating from the ground. $600 for each person per day, plus hotel/food/transportation etc. for everyone. Likely you'd end up paying for at least 2 days on most of the gear. Plus the production company that organizes everything is gonna mark everything up, and make some profit themselves for putting it together. And as for a company like Red Bull getting a deal? The opposite is true. Large companies pay full market price. The total on a watchable heli feed would probably be around $25 000 in the real world. And there's no way you're not gonna get good footage from a handheld camera pointed out of a Robinson.

Opinion: A Secret Trail and an Argument Against E-Bikes
Well, maybe i'll get voted down, but in Squamish, trials bikes are all over the place, and there's quite a number of trails that are shared by trials bikes and mountain bikes. The trials guys put in some of the more epic trails around too. And the fastest way to break in a new trail is to invite some trials riders to ride up and down it a bunch of times. I know that won't fly in a lot of places, and electric bikes are kind of a different thing all together I guess (I'd be embarrassed as hell to be seen on one), but there are places where the trails are shared between motorized and human powered bikes with very little conflict.

The trail app has 80% of them and is pretty sweet. The newest ones like Rupert aren't there yet, and there's always hidden jems, but the app's the best way to start.
