First Look: Only What's Necessary Shoes, Spank Pedals and Wheels - Eurobike 2015
Finally, somebody put hike-a-bike treads on flat pedal shoes. If anybody has to haul a bike up steep, muddy chutes for sessioning, it's people who ride flat pedals.

Ask Pinkbike: Chainguides on Older Bikes, Changing Pads and Roost Guards
This is one of those things that I would find useful and prevent some serious pain, but I don't know how the mountain bike community would react to these, aesthetically.

Photo Epic: Winner Takes All - Val di Sole Finals
Yeah, are those old GT Fury podiums? Or Sanctions? Judging by the rear triangle and the size of the pivot...

Results and Overall Standings: World Cup DH Val di Sole - Finals
+1 on what happened with Troy. He was so fast on the upper section! He didn't seem to have dirt on his jersey, so I'm not sure if it was a mistake, crash, mechanical, etc.

In the picture, you can see that the clutch switch is in the "off" position.

EWS in Photos - Crankworx Whistler 2015
I wonder how the SB6c rides with a coil rear shock. I was afraid that there wouldn't be enough ramp-up/progression if the bike was designed for an air shock. It seemed to have worked for Yeti this round.

Exclusive Ride Report: FOX Live Valve Active Suspension System
The FIA got Williams' computer controlled suspension banned in F1. I know why it was done, but part of me wants to see what would have happened if F1 didn't have such stringent limitations and see what a monnster they could build without rules. I guess I'd be curious about bikes in the same way.

Exclusive Ride Report: FOX Live Valve Active Suspension System
Richard, thanks for the article and thorough explanation. How was the traction on unbumpy, but loose, gravel-like climbs? I'm curious how it performed in those conditions since sometimes an open suspension aids for pedaling traction.

Video: Continental - Trail King Projekt
At first, I thought there was a new version of the Trail King, like Der Kaiser Projekt tires. Damn...

Where are all the Ladies? A Technical University Just for Women
Whoah, whoah, catfish: you just crossed the line. I and many people never said anything sexist, and your assumptions about our chosen sn's(mine is the combination of 2 silly bands) is unnecessary(and an assumption). Your elaboration that men exist in ballet is not being denied , but it has little to do with my example of an activity in which there is more of 1 gender than the other. Unless you're saying it's EXACTLY 50/50, which is impossible. I recognize that it is more intimidating when there is more of another group than your's. When I grew up, I was the only asian kid in the entire class and ethnic-based college clubs exist for a reason, just like SRAM's camp. But I can't get mad at Americans as a whole JUST because I'm part of a minority in a country foreign to where I was born. However, let's be respectful to BOTH genders. Nobody in mountain biking is doing what you're saying. Tell me the last time a guy literally said: 1. "this is how we guys do it, why don't you move along to your whatever that girls do." As far as I'm concerned, there is NOT EVEN a male or female specific way to ride a bike. If anything most guys are happy to see women on the trails. 2. If you have heard this, you're hanging out with the wrong humans, male or female. 3. You can't recklessly condemn mountain biking's majority gender for the words/actions of a few bad apples. Just like I can't condemn women(like my mom and sister) for what you assume about us: that we're all bros and dislike women in mtb'ing. Peace.
