Review: Akta's Trail Apparel & Protection Line
Specialized Demo Pro pants fit me well in a size L. I'm 6'4" with a 35" inseam. Try a pair on if you get the chance

Tech Tuesday: How & Why to Upgrade Your Pads and Rotors
No need for business cards. I always start out the same way, with loose-but-not-rattling bolts, but then rock the bike forwards using my weight, and with the brake lever pulled. The caliper settles into the position it 'wants' to be in. Then carefully ease off the forward push, and tighten bolts. Bongo.

@WestwardHo: Agreed. I have a T9 Butcher on the front of my Stumpy Evo. One of the best front tyres I've ever had

Spotted: SRAM is Testing Something (But It's Probably Not a Dual Caliper Brake)
@conoat: Nope. Neither sintered or organic pads 'lose power' unless a) you fail to bed them in properly and they glaze, or b) you burn through the pad material down to the backing plate. Most of the time, if your brakes feel like they are fading, it will be the brakes themselves, not the pads.

@thenotoriousmic: I don't know where people get this stuff about organic pads heating up faster. Metallic compound pads against metal rotors generate so much more heat. And I've got a full week's Alpine riding out of a single set of good quality organic pads before - because the weather stayed dry. And organic pads are at least as good as sintered when it comes to power. In fact organic ones usually feel like they have a better initial bite to them. Wet weather grit & mud is the only reason to ever run sintered pads. Admittedly here in the UK it is a solid reason.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 64 - Who's On Your MTB Mount Rushmore?
Agree 100% with Ashton. Legend. Got me excited about mucking about on bikes back in 1997. Also Peaty is a titan, esp. here in the UK

Review: 2021 Nukeproof Giga Factory
Lop 25-30mm off the ST in each size, and you have a winner. Nobody needs a 500mm ST on a bike like this when there are 200mm droppers readily available

Jackson Goldstone Joins the Miranda Factory Racing Team
I remember the viral video of him riding his balance bike to kindergarten as a toddler, pulling unreal moves for such a tiny lad. Good to see him progressing, even though I now feel so old that I am going to go and weep quietly in the corner
