Faces of Mountain Creek Bike Park
No there is more there now then there was in the Diablo days. Most of what they have built since is more flowy man 'bike park' stuff but all of the natural stuff is still there.

New Venue, Format Changes For Red Bull Rampage 2016
@SacAssassin: Didn't Cam McCaul announce it last year? I thought I remember it being him and Pat Parnell.

New Venue, Format Changes For Red Bull Rampage 2016
@mikekazimer: That's because the event can never provide a blanket rider insurance policy and still give the riders the complete freedom to do what they want. As soon as a third party assumes any liability (whether it be Redbull itself or an outside insurance company), that third party is always going to impose restrictions. Does anyone really want Redbull or some insurance company stepping in to tell a rider that the drop they plan to hit is too big or too dangerous? Because once someone else is on the hook for any costs, that's what would happen.

@SteveDekker: I use them for a downtime protector on my Rip9 as well. Works awesome.

@SteveDekker: I don't quite understand the hate for the bigger companies when they buy up a smaller brand. I do get that people like the idea of the smaller more focused brand. I do as well and given the choice of equally performing products I'll generally always go for the smaller companies product. But I don't dislike the bigger company simply because they bought out a brand that I liked. If they still make the best product for what I need I will still buy it. It's not liked they forced the owners of 5ten to sell. Those guys are the ones that sold out. I see people mentions alternatives like Vans, teva, and DC shoes. But those companies are all owned by big conglomerates too. Vans is owned by the sane company that owns wrangler jeans, the North face, timberland, and nautical among many others. The company that owns teva owns ugg boots. And DC is owned by quicksilver. I don't know anything about climbing shoes but I'm willing to bet that some of the other popular climbing shoes are owned by some monster company too.

@jewpowered: I have a pair of Tevas and they are nice shoes. I wear them mostly for light trail riding. But in terms of performance and grip they aren't even in the same league as 5tens.

Run For Cover: Track Walk, Leogang DH World Cup
I don't want to shit on Danny because he is perfectly capable of winning and is one of my favorite riders, but every time there is a muddy track everyone predicts he's going to win because of what he did in 2011, and it never happens. At some point I think we need to just realize that Champery was just a outlier where he had the run of his life. And that he doesn't really have any special advantage in the mud.

2017 UCI World Cup Calendar Released
Every year when the calendar is released we get a bunch of comments complaining about places that would be great for races, and why don' they have it at this place, or this country, etc. Can everyone please understand that in order to have a WC race an organizer and venue need to want to hold the race and place a bid for it. Its not simply a matter of the UCI picking where ever they want the race or picking places the riders want to ride. They can only chose from those venues that submit bids to hold the races.

Deity: New Digs in Idaho
I can only speak from personal experience but I'd have to agree, the customer service is great. A few years ago I had an issue with a messed up crankset (completely my fault as I installed it incorrectly), and they were great about it. I spoke with Sadie directly a few times, sent it back to them, and Eric fixed it himself for me free of charge.
