Review: 2020 Mondraker SuperFoxy RR
Dont forget that it fills with water, but maybe this is a clever new hydration solution that you can literally suck the water out of your frame instead of carrying a hip pack

Yeti Cycles Will No Longer Use the Term 'Tribe' in Marketing
@iainmac-1: if anyone is interested as well there are quite close ties between Ireland and the Choctaw nation. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/05/world/coronavirus-ireland-native-american-tribes.html Might let us all put down arms and realise that helping each other is far better than slinging s&*t at each other.

@Small-Tales-Epic-Trails: honestly no because as you correctly stated it's a drink. And that's a good reference because as you pointed out for a lot of Irish people still to this day there is a lot of resentment for the Black and Tans. But no one would petition for the abolition of the name. But then again I dont think you would see it listed as a drink here either. But it's not really relevant the Black and Tans committed atrocities in Ireland during a very violent time in our history and it's a very specific term relevant to Ireland. And as you said yourself outside of Ireland no one could understand or realise. Again tribe is not continental specific. So look the long and short of it is.I dont agree with the ban, others do so I accept their viewpoints and the world still spins.

@sspiff: I hear what you are saying, I think people are just flat out annoyed and frustrated that it's coming to this that now words are being disregarded in case they offend. In Ireland Galway a city in the West of Ireland is known as the City of The Tribes and Galway people and sportsmen are often referred to as the Tribesmen. A moniker they wear with some pride. It's a word , its non offensive, it's not specific to North America and it's just downright ludicrous that now words are an issue when interpreted incorrectly having been used correctly.

@sspiff: I may not be local as you said but I'm not completely uneducated, you can't commandeer the word or definition solely to identify first nations people in North America and ignore every other grouping on the planet.

@pargolf8: possibly in North America and I imagine in other parts of the world they might mention African tribes or indigenous tribes in Asia or parts of the arctic circle as well as Inuit people. The point is it's not specific to any one group of people. As stated in definition it's a human social group. I wonder do the 1000 signatories mountain bike or do they just get offended easily.

The term tribe is used in many different contexts to refer to a category of human social group. Are mountain bikers not a human social group. This PC nonsense is going too far.
