Video: Introducing the SRAM Young Guns DH Development Team
While it's always good to see more diversity, it's primarily a German team, and of the approx 82.5 mil population, only 500 thousand are black. There's no getting around the fact that there are far fewer black riders to consider for a team.

Fundrasier: Fight Cancer & Win a Cotic Rocket
Nice one. Having ridden the Flare, I can imagine the Rocket is a sick bike, and raising cash for a great cause adds a cherry on the cake. ...Is it missing bar end plugs though? *OCD intensifies*

I've decided to pass on this beast to someone who can give it the riding it deserves as it's a real shame to see it standing in the living room never getting used. I've owned it from new, however I left it at home for 3 years while I went away to uni, and have barely used it since! It's had about the equivalent of one season of use since new. It's an awesome frame with the option to change the geometry quite significantly to suit different tracks; the head angle and wheelbase are both adjustable. The wheelbase adjusters have just been given a service so are working excellently. The main pivot bearings are about 5 rides old, replaced with Enduro Bearings. There are a few signs of use as to be expected, but the frame has been heli-taped from new. The tape has bubbled a little in places but the paint underneath those areas is still perfect. I've upgraded every component except the seat post, and have various spares that I could include for the right deal (wheel, tyres, Shimano brakes, derailleur, shifter, complete spare suspension linkage! etc.) Open to swaps, offers for just the bike, or with any spare components you might want. Just ask away. Collection preferred. Spec: Commencal Supreme DH frame S/M Rockshox Boxxer RC fork Rockshox Vivid shock Avid Elixir 7 Brakes - 203mm rotors (Or Shimano SLX if you want them) Superstar DHX Wheelset Maxxis Minion/Highroller tyres Truvativ Descendant cranks Sram X9 Shifter Sram X9 Type 2 Derailleur (set up 7 speed) Sram X0 chainguide Sunline V-One bars & direct mount stem ODI Rogue Grips

Pinkbike Poll: What Injuries Have You Received While Mountain Biking?
@scott-townes: My brother did the same thing. We sent a letter in to MBUK, which got in the mag. Sadly he didn't get the prize from it because they (unsurprisingly) couldn't publish the photos!

Pole Bicycles Announces New CNC-Machined 'Machine' - Press Release
@polebicycles: Something just occurred to me; if every rider of the 15-20 or so that would usually ride one uplift van got an e-bike, that's 15-20 more powered vehicles with all of the associated energy production, batteries, waste, etc involved instead of one. So surely we should focus on making the motor industry manufacture more efficient vans instead?

2013 Vitus Sommet 1 Enduro Mountain Bike Size Medium Good condition considering age, some scratches and chips as to be expected on a mountain bike. The bike has been heli-taped from new, so although it is starting to look tatty, the paint beneath is still pristine. The scratches are purely aesthetic, and I have some official Vitus touch-up paint that came with the bike, but it's never bothered me enough to use it. I'll include this in the sale. It's had various upgrades including: Shimano XT brakes Narrow-wide chainring with new cassette & chain. Direct mount chain guide Specialized stem ODI Grips Various other purple components to match. The seatpost is also as-new condition because I swapped it out when I bought the bike. I have spares that I'll include in the sale if wanted: Front enduro-style mudguard Original Vitus branded grips Vitus horst link replacement kit Vitus touch-up paint Original Sram front brake disc (was swapped out due to discolouration, but still fine) ...plus any other spares I can find The frame bearings were replaced at the start of the summer, the bottom bracket was replaced approx 5 rides ago and the suspension was serviced at the beginning of the year. This incredibly capable bike received a 4/5 star review from Bikeradar. The original rrp was £2400 so please no silly offers. Collection only Full Spec: Frame: 6061-T6 Hydroformed aluminium with four-bar V-Link rear suspension, 150mm travel Fork Shock: RockShox Lyrik RC SoloAir, 160mm travel, 20mm-thru-axle Shock: RockShox Monarch RT3 Rims: Easton Haven Hubs: Easton Haven Disc, 110mm x 20mm front, 142mm x 12mm rear Tyres: Maxxis High Roller Brakes: Shimano XT Chainset: Truvativ Descendant 1.1, 170mm Rear Derailleur: SRAM X9 Type 2 Chain Guide: Direct mount top guide Shifter: SRAM X9 Handlebars: Vitus riser Stem: Specialized Grips: ODI Rogue/Vitus lock-on Headset: FSA Orbit 1.5 Zero Stack, 1-1/8” to 1.5” Saddle: Vitus Seatpost: Easton Haven I've taken my SPD pedals over to another bike, so it'll just come with plastic test ride pedals.
