UCI Changes World Cup DH Rules with New Semi-Final Points, No Timed Training & More
Fantasy teams just became much less interesting without timed training. Adjusting the semi final points right before the season starts is clear evidence that not alot of thought went into any of the major changes they have made.

First Ride: Specialized Turbo Levo SL - The Electric Stumpjumper EVO
The fact that Kazimer thinks rear derailleurs will still be adequate and relevant on e bikes in 10 years shows how utterly and completely clueless he is about e bikes. Reading e bike reviews on Pinkbike is like reading mountain bike reviews on a road bike site. None of the testers are full time e bike riders. None of the Pinkbike staff is really into e bikes or openly passionate about them. If they are they are afraid to admit it because of the criticism they would get on here. It's like they are doing a half assed sellout to appease the e bike industry but not get their e bike hater fans upset. Every truthful review of an e bike should include the premise that exposed rear derailleurs are not necessary and completely inappropriate on e bikes, which I have actually heard e bike reviewers who review e bikes full time truthfully say on other sites. Pinkbike completely lacks any and all credibility when it comes to e bike reviews, they don't understand what real e bikers want because they are not passionate about e bikes and look at everything from the perspective of a non e bike.

WTB's New Devo E-Bike Saddle Has a Handle
Much easier to grab the frame in front of the seat tube when I'm carrying my 57 pound e bike. I've actually considered putting some type of handle there because I do alot of hike a bike scouting and have to lift it over stuff. But it would look awful and people would ask questions. Grabbing the seat is useless unless you are just wanting to just pick up the back of your bike.

Five Ten Launches The New Kestrel BOA
@WalrusRider: Nobody makes anything comparable to the 5 10 leather eps hightops, and mine have been very durable. 5 10 has had some issues worth certain models but most of their shoes are still great and that's why they are the most popular.

Daysaver Release Essential8 Multi-Tool
No JIS bits so this tool will damage your Shimano derailleur screws. Most bike mechanics don't care about this cause they are completely uneducated hacks. Better off going with quality Japanese tools than anything from highly overrated PBSwiss. https://bikex.org/welcome/past-articles/20-blog/211-bicycle-exchange-tech-tip-jis-screws-and-phillips-screwdrivers-don-t-do-it

Slack Randoms: Attempting to Break SRAM Transmission, the Smallest Functioning Bike & More
The whole premise of part of the test of that the derailleur survives but the hanger does not. With the stupid new direct mount derailleurs SRAM and Shimano are making either the derailleur or frame would have been damaged by these unrealistic tests. Exposed derailleurs will always be vulnerable because they are exposed and in a terrible location, as much as the industry tries to convince us otherwise. The biggest crock of shit I hear is when riders talk about how they've adjusted their "riding style" to avoid damaging their rear derailleur. Go to hell you pussies! I'm not thinking about my rear derailleur while I'm trying to survive a tick garden.
