Slugging it Out - Windham XC World Cup
I was there Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was mid 80's all three days. Looked up forecast each day to know how to prepare. It was hot in the sun for sure, with no clouds or wind, but not even close to 100F. Besides, look at the first photo here, the 99.1F temp is in the "Inside" box, and has a battery error icon next to it. The "Outside" box just shows dashes (error). Also, I don't think that being under a vinyl tent shading you from the sun RAISES the temperature 20 degrees.

Schwalbe Announces Dual Chamber Tire System Details
From the article: "Schwalbe will be responsible for the production and marketing of the system that is expected to be compatible with *conventional tires and rims* with a minimum internal width of 23mm." Tubeless-ready/UST tires not necessary, and yes all rims (23mm wide or wider) will take the system.

"Schwalbe will be responsible for the production and marketing of the system that is expected to be compatible with conventional tires and rims with a minimum internal width of 23mm." Yes, you will be drilling an extra hole for this, unless you buy a rim specifically designed for this, which will surely be available as well as the option to use your own.

Yes, bigburd is right. And he's saying the same thing the article says, and what pros know and do themselves, and trail riders all over, not just DHers, are discovering every day. I don't understand the negative props on bigburd's comments either, @finnrambo. Whatevs, now this comment will get them too. Have fun bouncing off of roots and rocks and subjectively thinking you're going faster just because your bike feels like it sprints up to speed a tad quicker on smooth ground. Tech sections, tire slippage and hard cornering be damned.

Ask Pinkbike: Should I lock out my fork? A clamp to fit a stubby seat tube? How can I land a bike shop job?
Division of labor. It IS all about mechanics for the people in back of the shop wrenching on bikes, and it's all about people skills for the sales staff up front. Mix the two together, and no one is an expert at any one thing. But, agreed: don't be a loud mouth, smart ass bmx kid.
