Andreu Lacondeguy to Ride a Rust Themed Commencal FRS at Red Bull Rampage
I recently sold off a '67 Mercury Cougar simply because I couldn't keep up with the invasion of the cancerous rust. I'd do body work(cut holes, fill, etc.), then have to do more a little later. It became frustrating, saddening to watch the destruction no matter what I was doing, and, it was losing value the more it lived with me. Rust....isn't cool. And not sure why he says "specially in Utah"....try living with an old car near the ocean!

Trek Finds Carbon Frames Produce Nearly 3 Times the CO2 of Alloy in its First Sustainability Report
@KalkhoffKiller: Not sure what your point is to me...sure, we're "consumers", but we all have a choice as to how much and what we consume. I didn't complain about this website. I ride bikes.

You got it! I gave up hope after watching the woman fresh from yoga class(namaste shirt) wrap her plastic wrapped meat in another layer of plastic at the grocery store, then drive away in her giant SUV. And the amount of two year old "monster" truck sized trucks where I live though they never leave concrete. I'd guess 1% of people actually pay attention to what they do/their impact

@pb-kg: I figure it is a marketing tool...they stand out no matter what, but the FOX giant decal certainly isn't subtle either, ha ha I've always been a big fan of the old Marzocchi look....chrome/red...kind of classy I thought. The newer Lyric has that bright red with chrome lettering which I like too

@ncrescenti: It's just one of those personal preference things. I've owned a lot of bikes...a lot of 150/160 rear travel bikes and the first gen Scout just feels "at home" when I sit on it...was instant, and the shorter travel still felt as good(for most of my riding). I like how I feel sort of "in the bike", and it's just fun to ride...suits my style. The newer geo rode nice but it's a bigger bike, and the seat angle sets you more forward, which didn't please me.

I'm riding a '16 bike and just bought a used '17 of the same bike since I prefer the "outdated" geo to the updated version of the bike. I may not be the hippest guy with the race crowd but I like my bike!

the longer Fox keeps these orange lowers the more displeasing it becomes to me. I've never liked the color orange but these forks only prove how the color almost never flows with any other color..besides Halloween colors

First Look: Transition Launch Alloy Scout and Sentinel
@JWadd: You probably knew something was going on just figured the sound was a normal "creak". I've had so many cracks I've gotten pretty quick at reaching for the flashlight and inspecting for tiny hairline cracks forming...sometimes it is just a metal on metal creak, but I'm pretty paranoid now! Any "good" welder should know how to deal with it...one guy told me you can't weld aluminum..not sure how he's in business! I used one guy near me, he did a great job(and I've used him on my classic car), then someone I knew popped up and charged me half as much but also did a great job(he's into BMX bikes, so that's useful too)

@hllclmbr: My buddy is a professional...I don't recall any heat treating after the weld, but I didn't question his method. And I'm no expert in the field so he may have and I didn't know He took my bike as was and welded the necessary spot(s). That frame ultimately cracked at the top tube(again), but not at any of his welds. He actually added meat to the weak chainstay area, which I think would be good to do on any existing since that spot cracked the most...and once he did his bit it didn't crack there again.
