The Most Interesting Bike at Outdoor Demo - Interbike 2017
At first I was excited because I thought it was a gear box bike paired with eagle - not sure what I would use that much range for, but at least it would have been fun to talk about. This feels a bit blah to me.

CushCore Tire Insert - Review
@mikekazimer: thanks...I'm tempted on these because of the rim protection and ride qualities but all of my recent flats have been sidewall or nasty punctures between the tread - Cushcore won't help me there and I would like to avoid a long walk of shame out of the woods.

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
@dubod22: a couple of thoughts. It looks like around 42% of unique page hits daily come from the US with another 18% from Canada - I think you will see that most of the eBike vitriol comes from North America so it makes a lot of sense that the comments are dominated by people who want nothing to do with these things. In fact, I bet that Pinkbike could tell you what the percentage of comment and content contribution is that comes from North America and that it would be higher than the 60% you see here. There is definitely a sense of NIMBY here from outsiders looking in but it may be justified. The community has struggled for its place in the outdoors and truly not gotten very far by the standards of availability of open space versus actual access. To then have a motorized vehicle (intentionally inflammatory but grammatically correct) attempt to slide in to hard earned access as a pedal bike is akin to the parenting behavior of the cuckoo. Please don't assume this is a single political side and associate those of us who think electric assist bikes should be treated as a different class of off road recreation with the likes of Trump or Brexit voters or with being snowflakes or whatever you feel is most derogatory. None of those things are relevant to this discussion.

Results - Cairns DH World Champs 2017
@T1mb0: that's funny...with all those contenders of yours, where is the highest placed Brit? Only busting your balls a bit :) I was actually pulling for Mik or Hill - Gwin can get his in some other year.

UCI points determine order but last year's champ wears the number 1 plate

@T1mb0: not sure I agree...I actually thought the track was so bad that the racing was could tell that even Claudio and Warner were mostly bored.

Can't agree more...I've watched every race this year and this is by far the most boring, uninteresting race of the season...almost zero excitement with maybe half-dozen exciting runs.

Rumble in the Jungle: Practice Photo Epic - Cairns DH World Champs 2017
Danny leads in overall UCI DH points, Gwin is number one in UCI World Cup DH points. Just means Danny ran a few more UCI (not World Cup) races than Gwin this season - fairly typical as Gwin does national champs but doesn't run the locals (US equivalent of BDS - that Danny tends to run)

WynTV: Finals Chat - Val Di Sole World Cup DH 2017
NASA makes tires...engineers did a better job of putting Morse code on the tread than making them bomb proof.

I guess it's tough when 3 of 5 spots seem to be on lockdown for Brosnan, Minnaar and Gwin
