Cascadia Dirt Cup Round Three: Yacolt Burn - Race Report
Rode up to that 'Godzilla' step-down a week earlier. Looked at it. Walked back up the hill, rolled up to it again. Then rolled over the top and thought 'no damn way'. These guys in the photos are boosting it!

Transition Bikes Announce Scout Carbon
There seems to be a tiny little kink right at the front where it goes into the big head tube 'gusset' area. Other than that its a fairly smooth and consistent arc, but straighter than many other bikes' down tubes. Guessing that the straighter tubes will be lighter. That said the new Trek Slash with the dead-straight down tube looks funny to me now...prefer the subtle swoop of non-"knock-block" frames.

This was a no-brainer based on how popular these Scouts have been. Very good looking bike. Santa please bring.

Cane Creek's New C-Quent Shock Explained
Will this one blow up, and I throw it out the door, like the other one did a thousand times before?

Troy Brosnan's and Jared Graves' Specialized S-Works Stumpjumpers - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
@toooldtodieyoung: well applying pro athlete measurement scales, it probably means he's 5'2".

That's what I was thinking. Wouldn't have thought he was more than 5'6" from watching World Cup DH. But a large, and that post???

Pit Walk - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
The article is partially correct - tooling for a mold for a carbon linkage can be low - in the low $1000's - as the parts are small, new 3D processes can actually print the tooling, its low pressure, and there is always finish work required. Tooling for a full size range of production carbon bikes will often run past $100K.

Favorite Tools of the Mechanics - EWS Round 4, La Thuile, Italy
@groghunter: totally agree. I must like the tedium of re-socketing the damn tool in a bolt over and over, making 20-degree turns each time. Inhaled too much WD-40 in my earlier years.
