Pinkbike Poll: Do You Use Tire Inserts?
No, a tube is way to cheap to be a tire insert... :-)

DH Fantasy League Updated for Round 3 - Leogang World Cup DH 2018
@JoshParsons87: Ok, got it now. But still, someone who picked Pierron at the start of the season would not only have an advantage in points, but also be able to get better riders at a lower price - every difference at the beginning of the season would just be increased.

DH Fantasy League Updated for Round 3 - Leogang World Cup DH 2018
@smithcreek: But if the price of a rider on your team goes up, that means the worth of your team goes up. So, not only would you get the points, that the rider achieved to raise his price in the first place, but you would also have more virtual money to spend on your team from then on, compared to someone who picked the wrong riders in the first round(s). I think this would result in less changes in the league rankings, since the guys in front after the first races will be much harder to catch. (For example, if someone had Pierron and Troy Brosnan on his team in the last two rounds, Pierron would have risen massively in value by now, and could probably be traded in for Gwin, meaning someone would have Brosnan and the Gwinner, and still four other decent riders, which could not be achieved by someone with the regular budget - who would be behind in points by that time anyway, to make things worse...)

Pinkbike Poll: Could You Make it Down a World Cup Downhill Course?
Which course? Current WC tracks still differ quite a lot. And some can be ridden by the public as part of the surrounding bike parks. Others can also be ridden year round but have features added that a hobby rider won't clear easily, like in Fort Bill last week. Some tracks and trails, when I first saw them I nearly shit my pants, like that incredibly steep bit in Andorra. Others don't look that gnarly... Until you try to go at any speed that is in the remote vicinity of "fast".

Well, actually, those were not the five fastest ladies down that track on that race day ;-)

First Look: Shimano's New XTR is More Than Just 12-Speed
Small wonder ebikes are such a success. Obviously everybody needs 45tooth sprockets these days. If I had any use for that I'd want an ebike, too. Maybe when I turn 50. Until then I will stick with my Shimano 1x11 setup, 40 teeth are more than enough.

First Look: Newmen Components' New Wheels Have Spokes Made of String
@OnionRing: The brand is called Newmen, with an e. So that is not really a direct reference to Paul Newman. That they appreciate his work, and might have had that in mind, when they came up with the name... well I can't see any fault with that. And I guess everybody is aware that the impression of a person that one gets from their work can, and in a lot of cases will, differ largely from the impression in any personal encounter, if that is what you were referring to?

First Look: Newmen Components' New Wheels Have Spokes Made of String
@OnionRing: He meant that they wanted an ambigram, the logo looks identical upside down "flip-flopped", and that is easier to do with some words than with others.

Opinion: The N=1 Dilemma - What Would Matt Wragg's Only Bike Be?
@tuberus: And any of that gets better if there's Ebikes mounted on the cars in the traffic jam? I'm all for Ebikes that replace cars. Unfortunately, from my experience so far, most Ebikes just replace mountain bikes, which means they are transported right to the trailhead in exactly the same way, and the battery power is then used to shred more trails within one day. Not a bad thing, in itself, but from an environmental point of view, that doesn't make anything better, but worse.
