Throwback Thursday - Gee Atherton's Bonkers 2010 Rampage Wall Ride
@neimbc: Loved watching Gee compete at the top level WC races and then just go hit Rampage every year. Always was pushing for a win there for him. Glad to see some other guys try it still. There seems to be a big crew of old style and new which is hard to judge at Rampage. Since there are so many other slopestyle contests I still rather see the raw tech steep lines.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@jzPV: "That said, I just wanted to add some thoughts to this article because I don't think it is written very well and it is more of an opinion piece. " That is exactly what it is, an opinion piece. In his takeaway he basically suggests that, "If you've made it this far, you've probably made your choice, and either one would be right. After all, you're the one riding it." Then goes to "does this discussion really matter?" This article just brings up the discussion. Are his facts accurate? Who knows. Could it have been better, of course but unlike you he isn't writing a master thesis on environmental assessment. Perhaps he points a greener picture for carbon so its your choice to choose what you believe and where you want to spend your money. The bike industry went to carbon because the advantages of it were better than aluminum. There are downsides to both. I have seen plenty of aluminum frames break at welds as I have seen cracked carbon frames. The consensus is Aluminum frames shouldn't be fixed due to the metal being compromised. Carbon you can fix, albeit its cost quite a bit and in most scenarios not cost effective. Maybe someone should open up a company that just fixes carbon bikes/wheels and sells as I think someone mentioned. Then it would always be recycled! :).

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@jzPV: on a side note: Aluminum or Aluminium is spelled differently in different countries. Aluminium comes up actually as spelled wrong on my computer as I type this.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@Eatsdirt: Or I'm just tired of lending out tubes and pumps etc. to riders who carry only a water bottle and think they can go on a ride and nothing happen. Last time I was helping a guy fix his flat instead of a 3 mile hike out, comments about how it was his third time flatting without a tube. I just rolled my eyes. I remember graeves on the yeti rode always with a pack because he carried enough stuff to get him out of a pinch if something happened. Of course a yeti didn't have a water bottle mount either.

Round 4: 2017 Photo of the Year - Voting Now Closed
Maybe the rider size related to the background probably is why it isn't getting picked, just a bit bigger would have made this one awesome. The other nature ones just don't do it like this one. The reflection is sick!
