Throwback Thursday: 7 Female MTB Pioneers Who Made History
Probably because our sport has a bad case of cultural amnesia. Pretty rad that Pinkbike is trying to address that issue.

Throwback Thursday: 7 Female MTB Pioneers Who Made History
A list this short will always be incomplete, but every woman mentioned absolutely deserves their spot. Legends, all of them. For anyone interested in the history of our sport, you need to look up Wende Cragg's photos. If they don't make you want to push up a hill and bomb down with your friends, you might not really be a mountain biker.

Video: Developing the Next Generation Santa Cruz V10 In 'The Eighth'
Initial impressions of my Nomad 6 are that it will be a much faster DH race bike than my Fox Factory suspended 2015 V10cc ever was. Not apples to apples (duh), but it's genuinely surprising how significant the improvements have been between each generation of Santa Cruz platforms. If any new bike is going to give the high pivot/idler trend followers a reason to reconsider, it'll be this new V10.

Video: GT Launches La Bomba 24 For Next Generation of Rippers
Heavy bikes + tiny bars = back problems. Good riddance. There's a reason so many of us who survived that era turned into big yoga guys... That said, I still do smile every time I see a vintage Standard. Almost makes me miss my old Trailboss. Stockholm syndrome is a real thing.

Pinkbike Poll: Are Tire Inserts Leaving You Deflated?
*raises hand* Ran inserts consistently from mid 2017 through early 2022. Most of that time was spent on Cushcore, but tested most of the other available options in that timespan. The added weight and hassle is undeniable, and after testing a TON of different combinations of tires/rims/inserts/pressures, I ended up back on dual ply tires at 30+ PSI, which was exactly what I was aiming to avoid by adding pool noodles to the equation. Finally ditched them last spring and haven't looked back. They work really well for some riders, and they're worth trying for those who are curious. But they won't make up for inappropriate tire selection, and they don't magically make silly low tire pressures work for full size people.

MTB Hall of Fame Announces Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjå, Shaun Palmer, Rob Warner & Diddie Schneider as 2023 Inductees
@ChazzMichaelMichaels: Palmer was already well known as a pro snowboarder and had serious star power outside of the sport. By demanding, and getting, reported seven figure contracts, he opened the door for other downhill racers to land much bigger contracts, which helped to professionalize the sport during the late 90's heyday. Unfortunately the sport crashed shortly thereafter, so his bigger legacy ended up being Fox 360 pants, Vans, and flat pedals, which is pretty killer too. HOF material, without a doubt.
