I just want a stand like that for my NSR to keep my rack and bikes all together in the garage

Review: 6 of the Best Tire Inserts Ridden & Rated
@Jacquers: No it still uses a single valve hole, the valve provides it's own split system by screwing in and out (although to be fair I have had problems with air loss over time when not riding for a week or 2). But yeah they are pricey, but again, I only use it in the rear tire so it's one set for 2 bikes. In 5 years of riding them across 6 bikes and 3 continents I've only had 2 of the high pressure inner tubes fail, 1 was shortly after install so I think it was just a dud (or install error) and the second was dicking around trying to ride out my DH run after ripping the tire...

Review: 6 of the Best Tire Inserts Ridden & Rated
Looks like I'm the one guy still using Schwalbe procore... I'm 220lbs and have grown to love the bead-lock effect on the rear wheel. Don't run any inserts up front and floating around 20-25 psi front and rear depending on the trail.

Orbea to Move US Operations to Boulder, Colorado
@Sycip69er: I grew up in that area and always wonder about the logistics of it when I hear companies talk about moving to the grand valley. It's not just freight, flying in and out is a saga as well for any business where travel is required to more than Denver or SLC.

Red Panda Release the Lobster Upgrade Kit That's Claimed to Improve the Reliability of Shimano Brakes
@TrevZ: another big and tall dude here, I had the same issue, SRAM too weak, Shimano too flaky. Give the Mt5/7 a go and I think you'll walk away happy. The strength of the saints with the modulation of SRAM.

Updated: Canfield Bikes Prototype Stolen, Possible Sighting of Rider
So here's a question. Cops don't generally have the resources to pursue our meager 5k bike when they get stolen right? But a prototype by definition represents 10's of thousands of dollars in R&D expenses (obviously more if we're talking carbon or one of the big companies prototypes for what will go onto become thousands of frames) and must be a grand theft felony worth pursuing? Maybe this bike thief will get more than a slap on the wrist for once?

Ask Pinkbike: Sketchy Carbon Bars, New Bike or Upgrade, Sharing the Trail, & Fuel Containers
Another note for new bike guy, at his height the updates in geometry from 2014 to now are huge. Bikes are now made that actually fit us tall guys so I'd strongly recommend upgrading if possible.

Gravaa's New Wheels Will Allow Tire Pressure Adjustments While Riding
For the record I absolutely love what they're after here. But it would seem to make a lot more sense to mount the pump/canister on the frame and have it directed to each tire through a sort of CTS system like on military vehicles. Keep the weight off the hubs and have 2-3 preset tire settings to switch from fed though small airhoses. Done right you wouldn't have to even swap wheels to have the same control unit on multiple bikes.

What Will a No Deal Brexit Mean for British Bike Customers?
Yeah most big bike brands EU headquarters/warehouses/tax base is in the Benelux region so the bike may be international but it will still be getting "imported" from the EU unless it is a large enough brand they can justify shipping and warehousing entire containers of bikes in the UK to avoid the tariffs. Which may happen in the long run but certainly not while Brexit is still the mess that it is.
