Crankbrothers Highline Dropper Seatpost - First Ride
@markg1150: I looked into the Hilo but it got mixed reviews, and they dropped 27.2 sizing for the second version. If I buy one, it will probably be a Gravity Dropper but I'd like to cut off the pig ugly rubber protector.

Crankbrothers Highline Dropper Seatpost - First Ride
No 27.2mm love from anybody lately. We are stuck shelling out a lot of money for the Thompson, or saving a lot of money and going to the Gravity Dropper.

Banned in the USA: Part 2
Both good points made above. One thing I've learned in science is that a) the best results are those that surprise you and challenge your current beliefs, and b) that "making science" is only a small part of the battle. You need to be able to communicate effectively to justify its value (and in the case of academia, your existence as a publically-funded scientist). In this case, there's a pretty big research gap that needs to be addressed, and the data will "fall where it may" when the analysis is complete. To be fair, there's a lot of research that results in seemingly unsurprising conclusions but you can't say for sure until the work is done. When it comes to this particular debate, I think STC has it right by tackling the interpretation of the legislation. They shouldn't even need hard data to win something that can be logically deconstructed, but it certainly helps to strengthen the argument. When [emphasis] the ban on bikes gets overturned and the opposition wants to bring it back, then the burden of proof lies at their feet to demonstrate that bikes are damaging the trails and user experience.

Banned in the USA: Part 2
Being a scientist, I love to think that more research is all it takes to convince governments to make changes. But that's not how politics works. To paraphrase Tom Mulclair during our last election: The Sierra Club et al. are not interested in fact-based decision making, they believe in decision-based fact making. The cognitive dissonance by the opposition groups is outrageous. Twisting their brains around to maintain these positions is gonna block an artery and cause someone a stroke at some point...

USA MTB National Championships Update
Stephen Ettinger put in an amazing race at the Pan Am Games last weekend, winning bronze. Awesome crowd and I'm sure the U.S. nationals had just as much enthusiasm. I can't find the name of the other American rider but he made a dramatic come back after flatting early on in the race.

New Products From Fabric, Alpinestars, Kali - Press Camp 2015
What is it about North Wales in November that requires more than a mini chain tool to repair a broken chain? Not that you're wrong about detachable tools, I keep a close eye on the 8mm removable hex when the Allen keys come out.
