Bike Check: George Brannigan's Propain Rage Mullet Bike - Crankworx Rotorua 2020
You know whats really nuts? You can't buy Propain in NZ either— in spite of the fact that their rider Brannigan is a kiwi! Talk about a lost opportunity... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

First Look: IXS Trigger FF - One of the World's Lightest Full Face MTB Helmets
@unrooted: Just so you know. Me—late thirties with a full head of hair, albeit now somewhat receding—just took a massive digger a few weeks back and my head hit the deck first. I was travelling pretty fast and cracked my helmet on impact and gave myself a moderate concussion. In my case my helmet, a TLD A1 non-mips, did not rotate a la MIPs. I think had I been wearing one I might have been far better off. I'm now of the opinion that MIPS or similar rotational device is a necessity, full face or otherwise. *I know this is an old post so please understand my reply is intended for those, such as myself who read the comments at a later date. Peace.

Canyon Launch Two New Strive Factory Race Models and 2020 US Line
if they do away with it I think they'll sell a lot more. I'd never buy another bike with one.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
@StackingItSince1991: nahhh, you just need to find the right seller. Buying bikes secondhand is for those with both patience and a keen eye for detail.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
Absolutely. I think this question should be rephrased "as how much would you spend on a bike relative to your current income?" and the answer for me would be no more than no more than 5% of my annual net salary. Ideally closer to 3% (with the understanding that I will keep it for three years).

Video Highlights: EWS La Thuile 2018
@sarah-maude: I totally agree. I do wonder if it has more to do with their fundamental approach to racing Enduro. Both Graves and Rude are big riders whose training seems to have a lot of emphasis on gym work for strength and power. This is compared with Hill who if anything has slimmed down since his DH days, and (it would seem) focuses his attention on endurance fitness rather than all-out power. Besides the fact that he is an astonishing rider, I imagine Hill's approach of prioritising consistency rather than out of the gate speed means that he's also a lot less hard on his gear. And if you wanted to get really deep, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's concept of Flow serves as pretty great explanation for why top riders such as Hill, Ravenel and others (Pierron, Atherton, Gwin, Bryceland...) have the ability to consistently outperform their rivals when they are at the top of their game.

Exotic Brakes and a Single-Crown, Single-Sided Fork - Albstadt World Cup XC
Totally. @Benlow: Dunno why you're being downvoted so much here. I couldn't agree more. Have personally seen SOOOO many Eagle mech failures this SH summer just been. jockey wheels blowing up like you've never seen. I myself have done it three times. Have two mechs warrantied. I have personally seen five other mechs blow up whilst being a race marshal. Twice this ruined podium contenders races. And FWIW one of these (replacement) mechs was borrowed from a pro race who has been on the top step in EWS. I recently swapped back to 11sp, shimano XTR on a SRAM block. Sooo much better and more reliable. Eagle is a masterclass in marketing BS. Don't believe the hype.
