Great video. Told a story and communicated the feeling of an experience. Beautifully expressed.

Slack Randoms: The Grim Donut II Survives its First Huck to Flat, Bike Dancing & More
The thing about the Grim Donut these days is that it doesn't even look all that outrageous anymore. Maybe 1/2 a notch different than a few product bikes out there.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
I don't over think this stuff but I never buy into the argument that a bike is only a minor fraction of the overall weight of the system argument. It's a tool where we are applying forces and leverage. For example, a tennis racket weighs probably 1% of the total weight (racket + user)... But swing a racket that weights 2X as much (still less than 1%) and you'll be degrading your performance in a pretty obvious and impactful way. Bike terrain and demands are dynamic - depending on the move, having a bike that weighs 10% more might require 100% more effort to see realized. So I think the linear assumption of weight to effort (energy) is too simplistic. Like most things, it depends.

WTB Launches Range of TCS Tire Sealant
@sunringlerider: In the days before Stans was commonplace, that is exactly how shops would 'thorn proof' your tubes. IIRC QBP sold it. Did it 1000x.

Tinker Juarez Announces Split with Cannondale in Now Deleted Social Media Post
Lemme break this down for y'all. If you regularly post on pinkbike "omg. I cannot believe how expensive this bike is. what are they thinking?'. You are not the age group for Tinker. If, on the other hand, you are in an age group where you don't think twice about 10K on a new gravel bike. There's a good chance you go to grassroots gravel races and endurance XC and marvel that a guy your age (or older) is still throwing down with guys 1/3 his age, then seeing Tinker (and what he rides) probably is more your jam. There are few racers from that generation that have name recognition and have kept up the fitness and skills to be relevant when they pull up to the starting line. Tinker is one of those guys. But he's more of a heads-down competitor and hasn't kept up on social media angle so that's probably been to his detriment given what typically is expected from an ambassador these days.

Pro Stage Results from EWS Tweed Valley 2021
Yeah, I agree. Thems the rules tho. Maybe next season but I do think it should be properly punitive - like 30 seconds/ea.

Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Prototype EWS Race Bike
don't those single beam stays / swing arms tend to wallow like mad from side forces? typically you'd see trusses or additional members forming a triangle or a variation of a rectangle.

Final Results from the Snowshoe XC World Cup 2021
@mtb1101: Don't I know it. Felt like Rob was talking up the possibility but Bart Brentjens was being a poopy pants at the party.

Perfect attack. Thanks to R Warner for not being dismissive about Chris during the race. CB gave a great interview too. Durango will be buzzin' on this - very stoked! Another well earned victory - congrats!
