Desperately seeking out remaining pockets of getting rad while bones and joints fall apart after 39 years of mis-use and damage.

First Look: Trek Debuts 3 New Bikes for 2016
Yeah agree, overstepped in my comparison there. If anything cx courses have become flatter and faster with less mandatory dismounting where xc courses are now including sizable drops. Modern cx courses do include more technical terrain 'features' though - just not spread throughout the course. Some of the up/downs on the Louisville course for example, or the 'radical' flyover bridges that some courses use, are a couple examples.

First Look: Trek Debuts 3 New Bikes for 2016
I think if the IsoSpeed allows for a smoother pedaling cadence when seated and riding on bumpy stuff that wouldn't require standing for balance or power, it will be a benefit over time, resulting in a less tired racer. Trek does this on their Boone cyclocross bike as well, which I've been itching to try, because it would seem to make sense. Cyclocross and XC racing are becoming more and more similar in machinery and even courses.

10 Bikes From the 2015 Trans-Provence
They are sharp looking. Wondering why this rider didn't opt for the 'Rally' version as its meant for events like this?

Jumped out of a B-52 without a parachute, missed the tree tops and thankfully there was a nice ramp transition at the landing site.

Video: Beyond the Bike with Jill Kintner
This might be a good place to share a tiny story I have about Jill. Years ago I bought a full suspension bike from her (used). We met up in a parking lot, she pulled up in her Tacoma. I checked out the frame, and asked about the pivots and bushings, and if she had any spares for things like the rear derailleur hanger. She's like "oh yeah I have those", goes to her back seat, and pulls out one of those plastic bins with dozens of little compartments for small parts, bolts, fittings, etc. The thing is f***king immaculate, I mean ORGANIZED. Like a bank teller's drawer. She finds the gadgets I need, I hand her cash money, and we're done. I had some good times on that bike. Thanks Jill and congrats on the recent WC.

Always love seeing work areas and the mix of retail items plus mechanic oriented setups is very cool. Gotta get to your shop next time in Vancouver.

Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
Road biking has just arrived at the "wide is better" tire and wheel upgrade, not just for the gravel grinding niche but most road racing. Even Mavic has slightly wider road rims now. I just can't wait until a new wheel diameter standard gets introduced to the road world. It will cause a collective lycra anxiety that will shame our paltry Boost hub complaints.

The Sturdy Dirty Enduro
Wearing a full face helmet to race that EAD trail is a good idea. If they include that trail in the Tiger Enduro in September, and its as wet as previous years, it'll be interesting! Great photos, awesome turnout.

Pinkbike's EWS Pro Rides - We Ride Justin Leov's Trek Remedy
It would put Kashima coating all the way into the marketing bs black hole, instead of just part of the way as it is now. But guessing its because a dropper post isn't required to make the little millimeter back-and-forth adjustments that a shock tube is.
