Flow Convertible Kids Bike - Interbike 2016
@Flow-Kids-Bikes: There's loopholes. Sell it with ONLY pegs, even as a frameset, but "conveniently" make the bottom bracket a mtb standard so that people can buy the cranks separately and it's now a "bicycle conversion" since it was "designed" with pegs, not cranks. Now, you can make a lightweight object that can easily be "converted" into a bicycle. Come on guys.... Dan's Comp and all other BMX retailers get around the laws of a bicycle needing to be sold with brakes. How do they get around selling brakeless bicycles that don't even have brake bosses? Include a really cheap throw away cantilever brakeset that cost 30 cents wholesale in bulk. Voila, the bike was "sold with brakes." Scalpers and ebayers have been doing this for decades "free tickets with purchase of $175 pencil." They're technically not selling tickets...you could technically not be selling bikes either..... Loopholes are there...the market is there...

Flow Convertible Kids Bike - Interbike 2016
Lets sit and think about this for a second.....this bike weighs 20 lbs, most kids that a ride bike that size weigh like 60 lbs, aka that bike is 1/3 their weight....that's the equivalent of an adult riding a bike that's ~60 lbs. That would suck...I help do skills clinics for kids CX and watching them pick up their 25 lb bike over barriers is so discouraging.... When will the bicycle industry ever learn that if they're going to make bicycles that kids REALLY want to ride, not make them weigh the same as an adult's bike. They got it right with the Strider, making it weigh nothing, which got kids really confident, why doesn't that translate into the full bicycle? How about do the same thing with kid bikes? A kid that weighs 60 lbs doesn't need the same burly hubs, bar, stem, cranks, fork, or rims as an adult. I bet that fork weighs over 4 lbs. They're not going nearly as big or nearly as rough on the stuff, so why use the same parts????

Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 2
@Theeeeo: @Theeeeo: because naaahh...Drew Bezanson is like every other BMXer and only does big tricks over stairs.....he isn't isn't used to doing big air tricks off ramps at all...see RedBull video Uncontainable. And I could care less about "poz'd post bro".....I'm not looking for Pinkbike internet glory, lol.

Drew Bezanson's Learning Curve - Episode 2
Noticed he said "ticking them off the list".....which is what an elite BMXer is gonna do on a MTB....just go down the trick list and nail all of them after a couple tries. He's just being humble, but I bet his bag of landed tricks is already bigger than the best in the MTB game right now....

Inside Sidi Shoes
Arch supports...insoles....how about doing/showing corrective exercises so you don't have weak arches? Rather than give the customer a crutch to use for the rest of their life, why not show them exercises to gain a remaining lifetime of foot health?

Random Thoughts from Monterey - Sea Otter 2016
Fatbike ebikes are like fatgirls....you never ever want to admit you rode one, but you had a really good time when you did ride one.

#N1NO, The Hunt For Glory: Hittin' the Gym Part Two - Video
What's funny is all those movements he's doing can be replicated without those contraptions and wheels. The fitness industry has gotten so diluted with BS and "a new remarkable stability exercise" that it's nauseating. That skateboard on a ramp thing can be replicated by straight arm lat pulldowns...or simply swimming. Don't get me wrong...it's probably a very functional machine (as many fitness things are...aside from the shakeweight and other gimmicky contraptions) but the target muscles and motions/movements can probably be more easily replicated with equipment already easily available. The most explosive people outside of Oly lifters, are arguably football players. What do their workouts consist of? Old fashioned compound movements like squats, deadlifts, bench, snatch, clean and jerk and variations of those movements. Sure things like rings and other things are sprinkled in for stability muscles....but nothing replaces moving weight with arguably simple compound movements. There's a reason Olympic lifters that never train for jumping have insane vertical jumps and crazy box jump heights. Explosive power. Some of them only do like 3 movements regularly: clean, snatch, and jerk. And taking away nothing from Nino, but REAL functional strength for mountain biking...look at riders like TRA, Kenny Beleay, Vincent Hermance and the Coustelliers. Speed, power, and lifting your bike when in an odd body position strato dabbing on one leg is functional. If you take away talent, the guy who lifts heavy weights explosively will win....every. Time.
