Video: Wyn Masters Speaks to Yoann Barelli on Sponsorship and Salaries in Pro MTB
@Xeddo: Very true! I could easily become a great "ambassador" for art and my "lifestyle", but talking to a camera, taking pictures of myself and promoting myself every hour...staring at images of myself to curate the best brand and imagery..and then staring at the phone and do the follow/like/unfollow game and daily interactions...no thank you! I tried it and after 5 months I had more anxiety than ever in my life! There's so much more to the social media game than just posting an image a day...you have to really want to be that kind of person(and in my experiences those are a certain kind of person that I'm not very comfortable being around---good sign of a girl you shouldn't date...look at her social media! ha ha)

@TerrapinBen: In relating to riding a bike professionally and social media.....As a professional artist(and a charity kind of brand I created) I understand I'm "supposed" to be creating content for my social media pages...I've spent time working daily on my Facebook and Instagram, even started producing videos for Youtube(instructional and lifestyle)..and opened a Patreon account. When it comes down to the important aspect of actually producing the product I sell...eventually I had zero energy or desire to keep up with all these exterior avenues. I update the socials when I have a new piece, but my videos have mostly stopped and my daily "tweakings" on IG have completely stopped---it creates mind rot! If I had my way(and the extra cash), I'd hire someone to take over these accounts...it's said a good social media person will spend at least 35hrs. a week to make those things work. I'll pass on that...I have way more in my life I want to do other than stare at my phone, and like a bike racer...time is consumed training, riding, eating, resting. A person can't do it all...at least effectively. I'm sure some do, but I can only imagine how very limited their lifestyle is.

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
@RoverDover: wow, I've had three Lyric's and a couple 36 and I don't recall them being noticeably flexy...maybe you have some headset issues, or front wheel is squishy? ha ha...but I feel anything below a 35mm stanchion on a 150 travel is going to be noodle if you're a bigger rider. My main fork currently is the Marz Z1(simplified 36), and it's been feeling great at 150

First Ride: RockShox's New Zeb Fork
@iantmcg: why do they need to be "fat/out of shape"? Weight can be achieved by other "healthier" means, and make a reviewer more reputable if they can actually use the gear without passing out with fatigue or having a heart attack. I'm 6'4, 220...not at all "fat out of shape", and I break parts and frames quite often

6'4, 220...when I saw the reviewer state "160", my thought was.."so it isn't getting pushed very hard".

Pipedream Launch Limited Edition Ti Moxie Hardtail
@softsteel: "less responsive" isn't necessarily correct...depending on the thickness, welding, etc. Kona had two ti frames back in the late 90's...I had one and loved it...I could make the back end bounce up and do some cool maneuvers in turns with it, as well it damped a lot of vibration. A guy I knew had the more burly version...larger gussets at the welds and it was a much stiffer ride. I've also had a few Reynolds steel and enjoyed them as well, but nothing can beat a good ti frame

Back to the Trails: Gunnison, Colorado
Where I lived is clogged with tourists also...at least 50% of plates are out of state...beach is packed everyday, and therefore the cases and fear have surged. Bars are closed again, July 4th fireworks were cancelled...life is semi standstill again. Maybe if people just stay home for a bit instead of this need to go travel and fill up places we can move past this mayhem and get a "normal" life back

Video: Max McCulloch Styles It Up On His XC Bike
That's how you start a bike video and keep your audience! After seeing how he rides I have to wonder why anyone thinks they need a 160 travel bike
