Video: Richie Schley Joins DVO Suspension
DVO make a solid product! They are user tunable and serviceable. Everyone in that building rides, and they are constantly testing and making improvements. Trying to take on Fox and Rockshox is no easy task, but these guys have something worthy of that challenge. If you get a chance to ride one of their demo bikes this summer, try it out.

Video: EWS Pro Trainer Dee Tidwell’s Program for Building Muscle
Almost every top rider (Enduro, DH,XC, Road, MX, SX, etc.) uses a coach. The amount of knowledge and constant progression is key. There is a reason that Aaron Gwin, hires a coach. Does he know how to lift properly, absolutely. What he also knows is that his job is to race DH, his trainers job is to monitor each movement and constantly tweak his form, push him beyond his perceived limits or hold him back when he sees him falling out of the proper form. There is so much to be gained by a trainer. You can bolt on a hop up kit for your car that will get you more horsepower and anyone with tools and some patience can do it. If you want your car to perform at its peak, you take it to a professional that is very good at what they do. Training is EXACTLY the same!

Lee McCormack's Guide to Bike Set-Up
I personally think that trying to belittle someone that is offering knowledge is a much larger travesty than trying to make a living. The riding books Lee has written were all along with a very well respected professional rider. While Lee himself is an accomplished rider, raced pro DH for several years, he still enlisted the help of Brian Lopes in his MTB skills book. In the BMX book you reference there are several top pros that helped, including Jason Richardson (Dr. Jason Richardson actually). Many of the skills from BMX and MTB crossover as far as technique are concerned. As for the RipRow, maybe you should try one before you call it junk. As far as anyone being a tool, the only tool here is knowledge, either learn or move on to another article, its simple...

Lee McCormack's Guide to Finding the Handlebar Width Sweet-Spot
Pretty typical PB comment posting here I see. Someone offers up some science based advice and the keyboard trolls bash and trash. First, lets bash the math because maybe your personal dimensions don't fall into the theoretical average .OK Lee offers up the Pro calculator to help, then its bash and trash because you either don't want to do the math or the math indicates maybe you should ride something other than what you believe. Bottom line here is that most of these articles are offering to help in some way. No one is saying you HAVE to follow the advise of others. If you like 26" wheels ride them, same with 29", same with long low bikes, same with short reach bikes. The point is you currently have a choice. As the science is catching up with trends there may be some things that don't work out. How about this, we thank those people that take their personal time to try and offer us some helpful advise? Should we choose not to follow it, then that is at our personal discretion. But we should still be thankful that someone took the time to try and offer the help! Thank you Lee for the insight and helpful advice!

Pinkbike Awards: Event of the Year Nominees
Maybe this should be called Race of the Year? Event, could be a festival, consumer demo, etc. Of those, Sea Otter, Roc d Azur, Sedona MTB fest, etc. would all qualify. Races are awesome and I love them, however, the sport as a whole isn't just about racing. Most people just ride, and they are the vast majority and should be represented don't you think?

Interbike Cancelled for 2019
The bigger question is " are trade shows at all important"? I think the short answer is no. With the bike industry moving to a direct sales model the most important thing is getting your products seen by consumers. Festivals, Outerbike, and events like those get bikes under potential buyers. Bigger events like Sea Otter and Crankworx have become convenient places to launch a new product. Any sales guy worth his salt spends face time with his brands/shops so there is no need to book meetings at a trade show to make deals. Finally, the media as well as Social Media, have done a great job of showing everyone the newest, latest greatest. RIP Interbike! I will NOT miss you.

Bike Check: Gwin and Troy's Custom Specialized Demos - DH World Championships Vallnord 2015
We are quite proud to have Gwin and Troy riding our wheels. While Enve makes a great rim(and other products), the set up that Gwin and Troy are riding is pretty light and the EX471 rims have proven to hold up to plenty of abuse (Gwin at Leogang last year anyone?). Looking at our weights vs. those of the Enve DH wheel may shock a few? Carbon is the new (not really that new anymore) drool worthy material, but a well executed alloy is still very viable and affordable!
