Easy 15-Minute Yoga Routine To Loosen Up Tight Joints - Monthly Yoga with Abi
Stretching simply increases the elasticity of the ligaments, tendons and muscles around the joint. Strength holds it all together tightly. I always focussed on strength after shoulder injuries and was able to get things "tight" again, but without elasticity - flexibility - they were prone to reinjury and propagated tension issues to my neck and upper back. Think of a rubber band. Stretching maintains the and builds the elasticity that helps the band return to its dormant length. Strengthening the joint is like doubling up that rubber band. Not stretching is like leaving that rubber band out in the sun... it's only a matter of time until you stretch it and it will tear, no matter how thick (strong) it is. Also, not a PT... but I've torn and injured both shoulders countless times, until I started to work n flexibility as part of strength training programs. ;)

@loopie: Yup. At 38 I can touch my toes easily for the first time in memory. I couldn't even sit cross-legged in grade school. Now I'm working on palms to heels. I spent my entire life in ignorance believing it wasn't possible, I simply wasn't flexible. Totally wrong, it's just something you need to train and maintain.

Classic ledge drops to flat and park bowl fly outs. And failed square taper BB's FTW. Love it.

Greece: Five Days, Five Islands - Video
We honeymooned in the islands 10yrs ago and I would constantly find myself looking for trails and lines in the hillsides as I sipped a cold Mythos.

Guinness World Record High Jump with Daryl Brown
@lostlunchbox: My experience with Dewalt depends on where you buy their tools. I swear the same model at a big box chain store isn't the same quality inside as a pro grade bought at a small tool shop. Namely Canadian Tire and Home Depot who seem to carry a lesser quality line of Dewalt products.

Eightpins' Integrated Dropper Post - Eurobike 2016
Or the reverse... OEM part prices are pushed so low by the manu's that the consumer price for individual parts needs to go up. Lots of components are spec'd on bikes but cost a fortune, relatively, to buy as a part.

Your Essential Guide to the Vallnord DH World Cup 2016
I don't know why these articles are entitled "Essential Guides", when most of the info, other than who is in the hunt for points, is retrospective. An Essential Guide would have info on this year's track and race... while awesome to have all of this background in one place, next season Pinkbike should consider renaming these articles.

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
While I agree whole heartedly on the sentiment, wishing the industry players will do this voluntarily is futile. This is a failure of or due to the lack of any sort of bicycle industry association that has real clout with its members. Such associations are typically the driving force of collaboration, forcing members to play nice in order to keep them from driving consumers away from the category with needless innovation. The other angle would be for the retailers or a related association to force collaboration across the industry, but being so fragmented by independents it would take decades and the death of countless of our beloved independent bike stores. We may generally talk smack about the tactics of bigger chains in the industry, think the recent CRC acquisition, but those guys may actually have the clout to talk some sense into the manufacturers... So protest with your closed wallet and ride what ya got until this shit calms down, when our money talks, hopefully the bullshit will walk.
