Continental Baron and Der Kaiser Tires - Sea Otter 2014
Wow, I can't believe it, but $65 actually sounds low for premium tires.. compared to $85 Schwalbes and Maxxis in the 3c variety

Just The Tip: Sea Otter Classic 2014 Part 1
Is this how they decided which booths to interview? Tippie: "Let's go check out that tent with the chick." Camera Crew:"But that doesn't have much to do with mtn biking." "Yeah, but let's go anyways. And then after that, let's go to the Evoc booth with the chick with the hot accent, and then the Eligo chicks." "Only if you interview Brian Lopes first." "Deal!"

I kept thinking.. is she going up the ladder in those shorts, and how is the cameraman going to handle this? Yep, he decided to get the shot... and look at the look on Tippie's face as she begins to climb up, too, heh heh.

First Ride - Specialized SWAT Apparel
Hey, how about this for some pretty obvious innovation? More mtb shorts with a waterproof back panel like the Royal Drifts, MT500s, etc? God knows we'll never ever use a rear fender, even if it's pouring, and that rear tire is just throwing $h#% at our a$s the whole damn time we ride.

Yeti 575 - Review
The only problem I've seen with that cable routing is improper housing length that is too short when the suspension cycles. However, that is totally avoidable(just like how you turn your bars full lock in order to test how much housing you need). In order for housing to be realistically damaged under the downtube, the log/rock has to get past the chainring/cranks or pinch it pretty damn high up the downtube.

Yeti 575 - Review
Those manufacturers mentioned use 1 piece rear triangles because they have linkages that don't flex the rear triangle in order to cycle through its travel. What the initial commenter is talking about is that the 575's rear triangle( seat stay, specifically) has to flex/spread in order for it to rotate around the main pivot and be pulled up by the shock linkage at the same time. Trek did this with the older Fuel series. It seems to have worked with Yeti's designs, but it is kind of odd having aluminum flex vs having a pivot.

First Look: Prototype HT Components Clipless DH Pedal - Taipei Show 2014
I love my DX's with the spring loaded body(props the front of the binding up for easy clip ins), but I just wish the body was slightly thinner for those of us with super-low bottom brackets. I don't find the newer fixed SPD trail bodies as useful.

THAT Was a Bike: 1991 GT Xizang LE
Although that photo makes Rishi look like Erik Estrada of C.H.I.P.S 70's motorcycle cop show, he's the mtn biking brother of Alexi Grewal. Rishi did mountain and Alexi rode on the famous 7-eleven team(the first American team to race the Tour, which turned into Motorola of Armstrong fame.)
