The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 41 - Racing Rumours and Team Changes
@mikelevy: I'm a newbie to the sport, so how I experience with mountain biking is roughly the same as my experience with skiing in that I think racing is cool, exciting, and vicariously stressful, but I don't see myself wanting a XC super light or the next enduro monster truck, much like how I don't see myself buying some skinny-stiff chopsticks from the other big S. I don't consider myself much of a free-rider either. Maybe the most ideal marketing campaign would be some 30 year old dude/person kinda just shrugging and saying, "Bike goes up and down." I will concede that I succumbed to race marketing super hard when I bought my first road bike out of college. It's a good bike, and I love riding it, but I wouldn't say that something much cheaper wouldn't have done the exact same job either. Maybe that colors my thinking.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 41 - Racing Rumours and Team Changes
I do have a question for the Pinkbike crew. How important is racing to mountain biking as a sport? I don't see much non-endemic appeal to racing as a whole. Do you think the "go fast" marketing is resonating with the average consumer, or is there a more measured approach you would like to see?

The FCKW Frameworks Reclaimer Was Designed and Built Completely by Hand
I agree. It's time for this discriminatory design and build process to end and usher in the new age where bikes designed and built by feet are no longer looked upon as wasted effort and scrap.
