Slack Randoms: Swinging Static Bikes, a Loop-de-Loop Slip N Slide & a Scrap Lumber Penny Farthing
I really want an internally-routed ti-dangle-bong to go with the dugout topcap on my bikepacking rig now.

Pinkbike Poll: Are Your Local Trails Challenging Enough?
This is absolutely right, there’s nothing challenging or worth riding out here. Save your money, stay in The Valley and ride amazing trails like Henry Coe and Santa Theresa there. No one should come to Santa Cruz.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America & Beyond?
Glad to hear Trailhead hasn’t had to lay anyone off. Great staff and the only mechanics besides myself that I’ll let do any work on my bikes.

Opinion: Ode to an Oddball - Rediscovering Two-Wheeled Fun
Great article. I’m not a steel evangelist old-timer, but I built up a Karate Monkey (Krampus’s little brother) last year, instead of going the gravel bike route, and have been beyond happy with the decision. Absolutely nothing fancy about it but it’s pure, unadulterated fun to go rip around the trails on it, and it’s shockingly efficient on the road to the trailhead if I just slightly over-inflate the bald WTB plus tires I have on it. It’s become my do-anything bike: pulling my kid on the trailer, roady workout rides, bikepacking, wet and mucky rides when I don’t want to have to do maintenance on the pivots on my full sus. Simple doesn’t mean it has to be any less fun!

First Look: DT Swiss' New 240 EXP Hubs
@LeDuke: I haven’t had an issue yet (knock on wood), but if I do I learned from a mechanic a while ago you can do a little googling and find the Japanese/Taiwanese industrial suppliers that Chris King, DT and i9 get theirs from for a tiny fraction of the price. I replaced the bearings on my DT Swiss 350 front with ceramics last year for ~$25 and they’ve been awesome.

@Grosey: I don’t mind it once I got used to it. It’s like a slightly dampered instant engagement

First Look: DT Swiss' New 240 EXP Hubs
@stevemokan: Of course, like a lot of things in mountain biking. According to Duke University though, there’s some truth to it https://www.dropbox.com/s/cs2g251nz9faz14/dev-wheel-spindown.pdf?dl=0

11 Riding Glasses Ridden & Rated
Looking like your opinion is not that unpopular. I actually like mine, I’ve tried Tifosi, Smith, Ryders, and Home Depot safety glasses and sold them all (except the safety glasses, good for home repairs) for various different reasons. The Pit Vipers aesthetic looks more than a little out of place on me but I get a better fit, less fogging, the right lens color without a bunch of other spare colors I never use and better field of view for cheaper (again, except for the safety glasses). Totally agree they seem to try too hard though
