EWS to Start Working With the UCI
@CantClimb: Most (if not all) the events in the EWS are pre-existing events with public entry. The EWS race effectively becoming the pro category of a race that was already happening. I don't know the exact numbers but I bet it's a siginifcantly cheaper way of running a series than the UCI's more traditional approach of running a dedicated event.

EWS to Start Working With the UCI
@powderturns: True, but that's always a risk and EWS has the top teams and riders, UCI world champions are turning up in EWS events rather than the other way round. I fear this is the beginning of the UCI taking over EWS so it can fold it into it's own infrastructure, which would be a disaster.

EWS to Start Working With the UCI
@ka-brap: If you are involved in UCI mountain biking, you are not an important part of the UCI, they go to great pains to ram this home. Speaking of which I think this is a bad move. I can understand the desire for increased legitimacy (but don't think it was ever needed) but the UCI will push for homogeny and control, because that's what they do, in the long run that will be bad for EWS and bad for Enduro as a wider discipline.

First Ride: Pivot's New Firebird 29
@yupstate: I don't think there's many bike companies with sales charts for the last two years looking like that. Most of them will look more like the landing...

First Ride: Pivot's New Firebird 29
@Aksel31:€7k, sold through bike shops and they make 80% of the bike themeselves. Got to wonder what excuse all those brands buying drivetrains out of catalogues and getting frames popped out of molds in China have for themselves.

The World's Longest DH Bike: Isak Leivsson's Pole Machine 200 - Fort William World Cup 2018
29inch wheels and 'longer than a Geometron' looks in proportion again. It is quite amazing how DH bikes have suddenly leapt forward after what seems like forever of being more or less the same year after year.

Miranda Miller's Prototype Specialized 29er DH Bike - Fort William DH World Cup 2018
A banshee that got beaten with an ugly stick, then thrown out of the ugly tree in the height of summer when the branches are most dense.

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
@bman33: The issues is that aside from DT swiss they aren't licensing it out to anyone. Which makes it rather dead on arrival, SRAM and Sunrace must be jumping for joys, since if you want King, I9, Hope, E13, White Ind, Ringle, Joytech or any hub that isn't Shimano or DT you are coming to them for your drivetrain now. How good of a system it may be is irrelevant if you can't get the parts to use it. Nice to see Shimano going back to the Octalink days and shooting themselves in the foot.

Review: TRP Slate T4 Brakes
@danielsapp: Fair enough, but it is more or less the same as Avid/SRAM, being different brands within the same overarching company.

Review: TRP Slate T4 Brakes
'Comes from the same factory as Tektro,' Shocking to think that Tektro Racing Products would be made in the same place as Tektro, truly shocking.
