Video: How to Print a Mountain Bike
So what am I missing? Either the big bike companies are your totally ripping is off, or this guy's bike, while clever, is a new set of teeth waiting to happen.

ZEP'S How-To: Mythbusters and How to Learn
Yea you have to point more than just the knee. There has to be torso and hip turn involved as well, all pointing where you want to go. But the knee is what will help with weighting and weighting the pedal, if you chose to use the technique of dropping the outside pedal.

ZEP'S How-To: Mythbusters and How to Learn
A small technique someone taught me was to point the inside knee the direction of the turn (like Peaty) in the side by side picture. By turning the knee it automatically in weights the inside foot a bit, causing the outside pedal to drop. The further you turn the knee the further the outside pedal drops. It helped take the thinking out of it for me. Just point the knee where you want to go.

GT Factory Racing Add Bell, iXS and Jeep as Sponsors
Jeep is owned by Fiat, which makes and entire line of vans similar to those that Mercedes makes under the "Fiat Professional" brand name. I'm sure the Athertons will also be hooked up with some sweet vans when they needs as well.

Opinion: The Bearded Woman
I think if you read Mike's original review of that Salsa fat bike it somewhat validates what the anti-fatbike crowd is saying in a way. Because in one breath he said "I had more fun on the Bucksaw than on any other bike I've ridden in the last few years", but then a few sentences later says "it's still relatively slow and ungainly compared to a traditional mountain bike. It does make complete sense as an extremely entertaining second or third ride in your stable". I've always kind of seen these bikes the same way. They look super fun as a change of pace or in certain specific conditions (snow, mud, sandy trails etc) but they aren't really on par with or something that will every be able to keep up with or replace the traditional mountain bike. Like a luxury if you can afford 3 bikes. Sort of like a swallow tail snowboard. Awesome if you happen upon a day when you have thigh deep powder, but pretty much useless compared to a more traditional snowboard in normal conditions.

Superenduro Series Pausing For 2015
Well thats not completely true. Enduro is also only about who descends the fasted, since the "climbs" are not timed and at times involve lifts and shuttles. You don't really need climbing "skill" in Enduro, you just need the conditioning to be able to ride a bunch of downhill stages after a tough climb. Its still more a gravity competition more than it is a combo of DH and XC.

Superenduro Series Pausing For 2015
I think its just because many of the products now being labeled "enduro specific" are things that already existed, and are just being repackaged as something more.

Superenduro Series Pausing For 2015
I don't think people really dislike enduro racing. I think people just dislike the marketing hype surrounding "enduro" related products.

Male Gravity Racer of the Year 2014
He had a very serious an complicated injury. I would not be shocked at all if it he is never back to full strength this season. His injury is a potential career-ender for guys in many other sports.

A United State of Downhill
Well I think part of that is, as the article pointed out, that some of the tracks are not difficult enough for the pros and that if they did make the courses more difficult you might then have that situation come up.
