Tahnee Seagrave Out of Fort William World Cup DH 2019 [Updated]
That is a complete bummer. I hope it it is only a grade 1 or grade 2 separation as the recovery period is reasonable. Grade 3 would freaking suck. The recovery from surgery for that one takes a lonnnnng time. And it takes forever to get over the fear of re-injury.

First Look: DT Swiss' New Ratchet EXP Hub Design
@maglor: the MSRP on the current 180 is US $829 so this is, in fact, less money.

@@dominic54: that is not a fact based opinion. There are plenty of high quality options that are very inexpensive. Margins for bike companies are low and they compete with many other industries for materials and talent. We are experiencing across the board inflation that is impacting most goods and products (lot’s if reasons for this). Perhaps the more significant question is why worker wages are stagnate and not keeping up.

Amer Sports Confirms Sale of Mavic
@joebmx88: France has very different laws than the US which very much support unions. Regent will have a tough time breaking it up.

Video: RockShox's Wireless Reverb AXS Dropper Post Explained
Hmmm, the Magura Vyron is $300, is lighter, has a 3 year head start on production and customer use/feedback, and now has a 2nd version available. I get that SRAM has a lot of cool integration features between the seatpost and the AXS group set, but $800 WAY to much for a dropper. I am perfectly happy with my Transfer, and there are lots of inexpensive and reliable options available now. If I was going to “try out” a new wireless option, I definitely would not drop $800 on this. That and I still have PTSD from the multiple failures and warranty returns with the hydro Reverb. My Eagle X01 shifter and derailleur have been fantastic, so not here just to slam SRAM in general>

Video: The Aluminium Propain Rage Has Its Sights Set on Bike Parks
@NYShred: yes, many optuons from multiple brands; nothing to debate there and no conspiracy. The market dicatates what is offered and brands are responding by providing alu and carbon. No one is forcing anyone to buy carbon.Your choice to be angry at companies is your choice, just know they run with tight margins and have to make choices based om market demand and respond as quockly as possible. Dpn’t like it? Then start your own company and experience the joy of a fickle market. Like I said, there are plenty if alu options so but what you want. Note that my comments are in reference to your 1st paragraph, about the entire market. Re YT,!gheir choice on what they sell and I jave no interest in giving them armchair market, supply chain, or fiscal advice. Especially true aince they are a German company and have very It’s mountain biking dud - relax and enjoy it. On the possitive, Propain is a great company as well and cool that they offering ip park options and not just race oriented DH bikes

??? The top of the line Tues is 300 euros less than the Rage with a similar build. Carbon and Alu both have their pros and cons it’s great that we have tons of options. I prefer carbon in most cases, and Alu for park since the bike will take a lot more dings and tumbles over time. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. Relax, enjoy the options and ride what you like. There are far more important things to be angry about. And for the record, all mountain bikes are luxury items. The fact that we have discretionary time and income is a luxury that is not the norm for a substantial portion of the population.

All the Adjustments: Formula Introduces the Selva R Fork
@rideformula: I thought your marketing material/copy was fine and I was able to understand the problems you were trying to solve, your engineering intent and the results. That said, the additional clarification helps further elaborate the benefits you guys believe you provided. Best of luck.

What Are Your MTB Pet Peeves? - Opinion
1. Roosting berms that aren’t part of your private trail - someone else puts in the hours to buildsweet berm that gets blown out by someone who either doesn’t understand the concept of railing or somehow thinks sending dirt everywhere makes them look like they are a fast/badass rider. 2. Calling bikes weapons - they modes of transportation in spirit, but really just toys in our sport. I am not at war with the mountain or the trail, in fact, just the opposite. To ML’s point, we are dorks in the woods having a good time. So, Pinkbike, Vital, etc. just review the bike and write about the cool features. You don’t need a really bad metaphor to juice up your review. We’re geeks and dorks, tech specs, sticky rubber, and anodized metal is enough to get us going.
