Story Time: When Bikes Aren't the Answer
The towel over the typewriter is the best metaphor for grief that I've ever heard. Being cool is over-rated but elegant prose that can be attributed to you lasts a lifetime. Thanks for your self-effacing Brit wit and your willingness to expose a raw nerve to an audience that can be hostile to the most mundane of perceived infractions. May your grief ache a little less every day.

Makes me feel bad for not doing the Pemby 50 this year. Guess I need to put in a whole lot more training! Gotta get those miles in the legs!

Video: Course Preview At La Thuile with Alex Malacarne & Adrien Boichis
I can't imagine doing that at pace with a 100mm fork. Esp at the 8:00 minute mark.

Slack Randoms: Triangle Wheels, Gee Atherton's Backcountry Ride & More
So, nobody is going to comment about how insane that Wibmer backflip was? The margin of error was tiny and they didn't even have crowd control stopping people from walking across the landing area. I'm super glad it worked out and he stuck it. I know all of his stunts could potentially be career ending but that one would have been so awful to watch if it had gone wrong. Congratulations Fabio on another amazing feat. I can't believe anyone would even thing about trying that, never mind having the skills and the balls to pull it off.

Seems like there are very few places to be able to pass on this course. Maybe its the norm but it feels like you need the holeshot to win this one.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Alicia Leggett on Her Big Crash, Head Injury, & Recovery
Same. Major TBI in 1999. Playing an instrument was about the only thing I could still do afterwards. Could not read more than a sentence at a time, months of rehab. It was two years before I could play on stage but playing music kept me from loosing all hope during that time. 24 years later I still deal with some of the effects of the injury but I can ride my bike and play music and that has kept me sane!

Slack Randoms: Attempting to Break SRAM Transmission, the Smallest Functioning Bike & More
I couldn't do any of those tricks with a BMX bike 20 years ago, I'm even less likely to be able to do them on mountain bike. Especially now. Cool tricks though.

Opinion: Why Weight Doesn't Matter
Again, thanks for all the subtle laughs. I love your deadpan delivery and not stopping for reactions to your jokes and puns. I'm sure some it goes right over the heads of a few. I agree with the concept. It's the same in the road world where you see the weekend rider obsessing over titanium spoke nipples where shaving a few pounds off his own frame would make the most difference. Moving towards that happy blend of performance and longevity is where most of us should be looking but it's funny how few of us could accurately guess the weight of a bike by how it rides. That could be a fun follow up - weigh a bunch of bikes (preferably ones that have some mods), have the pinkbike crew ride them and then guess their weights. It would be interesting to see how close those that are in the industry could get.
