Commencal's Monster Trail Bike: Meta AM V4-2
I have a Race Eagle for Review, and I will be looking for that chainstay issue fix as well.

Hope's HB.211 Enduro Racer Nears Production - Whistler Crankworx 2016
I was told that HB 2.11 was a "working title" and that they are working on a proper name as the bike nears production.

Five Ten Hellcat and Freerider Pro - Crankworx Whistler 2016
I don't think you're going to sacrifice much grip - if any. I am told that S-1 is Five Ten's top climbing shoe compound

Leatt Convertible Full Face Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2016
@MasterSlater: All of the top helmet makers use scientific testing to evaluate direct and rotational impacts, The misssing link, and I believe that this is what your complaint refers to, is that the industry has yet to settle on a single, comprehensive standard for testing rotational forces. That will take some time to sort out, because that technology is still in the discovery and development phase. Everyone wants a standardized test, but it would be short sighted for the industry to push for standardized test protocols now, and then discover shortly after that new information negated those standards. My guess is that we will be there in one, maybe two years, but in the meantime, reducing helmet widths, supporting the head with shear devices and providing a sliding surface between the head and helmet are three methods that are proven to be effective in reducing rotational trauma, so riders have at least three options to protect themselves until the professors catch up with the technology.

Whistler Village Randoms: Crankworx 2016
@jeremiahwas: Thanks for that mention. It was. I've known her from the first time she competed on a mountain bike.

Whistler Village Randoms: Crankworx 2016
@Thustlewhumber: Maxxis already have 3.0" Plus tires. 2.8 is where it's at, though. More cornering stability with the same rolling feel.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Crashes Before You Replace Your Helmet?
@scott-townes: Helmets are heavily discounted, but PB rules of engagement dictate we quote the MSRP. MSRPs of a TLD A1, POC, or comparable "enduro' style half shells, are all in that range - especially if they feature rotational impact protection.

Great portrait of AG. Rare to catch him without his race face on.
