I started in XC and ended up in DH/Freeride... and I wouldn't trade it for anything... but anyting else that's on two wheels is fun for me... street/trial/DJ/all-mountain...you name it

6 Months After Breaking His Neck, Remy Morton is Back - Video
Had a few hard hits and one especially brutal accident with a long coma, lots of broken bones, skull, ribs, hands...etc (hit and run by a car) and that mindset is EXACTLY what people need to tell themselves, Your mind is so much more powerfull than people realize. It's what will get you back on your feet ! Everything with moderation, even moderation itself !

I am curious about the ''PM'' teeth... you claim it's long lasting versus the standard billet/machined teeth ? Also is the metallic powder just added to the resin, if so it's not sintered ? My mind boggles.... Thanks !

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
@TheRaven: tell me why it’s hard to asses metal damage ?! So many ways to inspect with non invasive techniques since it is conducting... whereas carbon is by visual inspection. Repair methods are the same. The fact that aluminum uses fossil fuels was already pointed out. A lot of aluminium refineries are sited near hydro electric dam to lighten their costs since they use so much energy. Apart from the trucks carrying the ore, most of the equipment (including the diggers) are driven off electricity so while some part of the energy comes from fossil fuels (big power plants are usually more efficient than standalone vehicle engines) there is a part of it that comes from increasingly available renewables. Tar and pitch come from an industry that needs to quite bluntly die so no point in going in there. Besides metal recycling trumps pretty much every arguments in there... this isn’t to say metals are “green” but they are way better for the environment than carbon production for now.

Carbon vs Aluminum: Separating Environmental Fact From Fiction in the Frame Materials Debate
Biased article trying to sum up an infinetly more complex issue than what it seems. There's a MASSIVE hole in this article and it's about that raw material for carbon: high end manufacturers use better stock than tar and pitch (oil refining by-products) such as Rayon, but they are a minority in the bike industry. Here's the real f*ck up: tar and pitch come from oil refining, oil exploration, drilling, production and refining have one of the biggest environemental impacts of any ressource utilization. That alone is more than enough to switch the favor to aluminium. Other points I can think of in the 6 min i have to write this: - The industry at large for metals is gearing towards a closed loop cycle of make/use/recycle, while specialized alloys will need to be made new du to contraints on performance, there is going to be a point were the mining of metals is going to be only for a make up amount. Compositesw made of relatively short fibers have no future propects of real recycling other than chopping them up -3D printing is rapidly taking the manufacturing sector by storm and pretty soon almost everything will be printed then mahcined if needed, very few parts will have to be made from bar stock/forgings... etc -Alloys and their products are very easy to repair and asses for damage, composites ? not so much, hence a lot of carbon products are simply thown away while a compareable alloy item could be repaired or evaluated esaily That doesn't even begin to scratch it but that 's the time I have....

Robot Bike Co R160 Custom - Review
@hamncheez: Economy of scale... Although most people assume a YZ250X is a good bike ( and it is ) it's nowhere near what pro level guys ride. If you look at the erzberg race, those bikes cost way, way more... So pro level motocross are waaaay more expensive than pro level MTBs.

@fartymarty: the carbon tubes are probably a culprit as much, that quality doesn't come cheap... Carbon fiber production is expensive and those are expensive carbon tubes, for carbon tubes haha
