Video: Remy Metailler Urges You to Ditch Disposables
@adventuresbycole: I get that it’s not the biggest truck going. My point is that 20mpg is still a lot of fuel to burn. Even switching to an SUV, or better a station wagon, with a rack could halve the fuel use. It seems to me that saving a gallon or two a day of fuel burnt would be worth it. The issue unfortunately is that Camelbak can sponsor a video encouraging people to buy their multi use bottles, but no one wants to sponsor a video saying: “hey: drive less, drive a smaller car, change you car less often, change your bike less often, buy less stuff”

Higenamine & Oxilofrine: What Are the Banned Substances that Jared Graves & Richie Rude Tested Positive For?
So, I switched my brand of granola recently, is there a risk that I’m now consuming a specified substance? Answer: No, because it’s expensive to produce specified substances, so no one accidentally puts them in granola. If, on the other hand you are managing your “pre-race diet” to optimise your performance to every extent possible within the rules...then you might be ingesting specified my view at this level of “optimisation” you definitely should be. checking everything and ignorance is a weak defence.

Interview: Jared Graves Comments on Failed Drug Test
What the hell kind of supplement accidentally includes a performance enhancing drug?! Surely these drugs are expensive enough to produce/synthesise that they’re not accidentally put in your average sports drink?? Full disclosure: I take vitamin C cos my mum says it will stop me getting a cold...

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
@Tmackstab: is that right? If I’m pedaling up the same slope, at the same crank revolutions, same bike speed (same wheel size!) then the torque at the free hub should be the same regardless of my chain-ring/cassette combination, shouldn’t it?

Review: Shimano XT Flat Pedals
^this. I’ve had the new V12s the last few years and they’re great; strong, light, cheap, grippy, comfortable. Found vaults a bit too wide for me. These XTs look good, nice machine work, but minimal advantage over a DMR and they don’t look like they have enough concave for my liking. I’ve found Saints and Specialized Bennys both good but too heavy for trails.

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
@RichardCunningham: The type of skiing that Candide is famous for (mainly freestyle, some freeride) has only really existed for about 20 years, with the notable advent of the twin tip ski. This is more or less the same timeline as freeride MTB. The fragmentation of MTB disciplines is actually pretty analogous to skiing. 30 years ago neither had Freeride, Slopestyle or Big Air. Now they both do! Skis back in 1990 resemble skis now about as little as a MTB does. Back then ski design was inherited from piste racing: narrow (no float in powder), non-parabolic (harder to turn), with no twin tips (can’t ride backwards). Meanwhile MTBs were evolved road bikes: they had less travel (no float in rough stuff), steep head angle (impaired handling), with no disc brakes (can’t stop nevermind go backwards). Both sports have evolved massively in the 25 years I’ve spent doing them. I love them both but there’s no way MTB is somehow “behind”.

Raked & Rated - 6 MTB Trail Sculpters
Been years since I’ve had time to build, I used to stash a cheap rake in the woods and carry an army surplus folding trenching tool on my backpack.
