Good Month / Bad Month: Nerds, Single Crown Forks, Interbike, & More - December 2018
The forks will handle the flex, but the headtubes? With the slacker-is-better also comes a higher stress factor. Gussets and long welds of the top and down tubes will be needed.

Texas Gets its First Lift-Access Bike Park
@FindDigRideRepeat: You really need to check out the Austin ride areas or move back to whatever hole you crawled from. Arguably, Austin was the first mountain bike city. Bicycle Sport Shop was the first MTB shop in the state, opened by Wes and Cody Williams, and sold to Hill Abell. The Barton Creek Greenbelt was barely a horse path, and Emma Long Park's motorcycle trails welcomed the MTBs. Trails were blazed by riders, not groomed handicapped-accessible paths. You build trails using the geologic and morphologic landforms of the area. You want blocky basalts, check the Big Bend area. Oh, that's either private or NPS-no-ride-zones. You want "dirt" then go ride the mud of the Ho Chi Minh trail. But don't rag on Austin riding.

Lawsuit Claims Search & Rescue Delays Contributed to Mountain Biker's Death
You take chances with an inherently dangerous sport in a wilderness environment, you are solely responsible for your life and well being. I'm sorry he died, but in any rescue scenario you take care of yourself and your response team first and second, and the victim is the third priority.

RIP Dan Hanebrink: Inventor, Competitor & Mountain Bike Pioneer
DH always had two meanings to me - Dan Hanebrink and downhill. He changed not just downhill, but our entire sport. I hope he's got his perfect flow trail in heaven.

I've always wanted to ride Creel and the Basaseachi area. Please let me ride vicariously through you.

5 Riding Resolutions for 2019
To "Be". It's harder than you think, but the rewards are innumerable. I'm removing Strava, cycle computers, cameras, etc. Just me, my bike, and the trail. Just being.
