First Ride: Specialized's New Turbo Levo FSR
@FuzzyL: What grabs my attention, is the price for that KTM is "will be just north of $8,000". The price for the Levo listed here, is $8000 euro. Is the Levo...more expensive!? That's nuts. OK, we'll say the Levo is expensive because it has lots of fancy carbon parts to save weight. But...why are we counting grams on an E-bike? You're already way beyond the weight that you would voluntarily pedal without the motor assist...so why bother? Just make the bike cheaper and heavier, and the motor bigger?

Video: Hacking Through the Burnt-Out Aussie Bush
Didn't a rider get eaten by a lion in North America recently? People in glass houses, mate. Our bushland is 100% free of huge man-eating animals!

Movies For Your Monday
I also think the helmetless BMX dudes get away with it for a long time, because they simply crash differently. A BMX is smaller and with plastic flat pedals, it's easier to bail and jump clear, and they're usually going slower. So they really do just rarely hit their heads when crashing. If you're interested in some data, check out Spencer Foresman's recent BMX crash compilations. He put up two different ~20 minute crash compilations, one just of himself (Spencer always wears a helmet) and one of his buddy Chad (who never wears a helmet). In 40 minutes of nonstop carnage, IIRC they each only get their bell rung once or twice. Which is really kind of amazing. Spencer gets right up and says "Thank #$@ I was wearing a helmet. Wear a helmet kids!" While, Chad just gets straight concussed. I hate Chad.

Friday Randoms: Wooden XC Racer, Run-Flat Inserts, and the Most Expensive Tire at the Show - Sea Otter 2018
Some guys on the Australian forum at Rotorburn have been giving various hardware store options a try! I think the $4 foam pipe insulation from the plumbing section is the choice at the moment. https://www.rotorburn.com/forums/index.php?threads/huck-norris-anti-flat-tubeless-protection.311471/page-2#post-3166483

Tasmania, Australia's Mountain Bike Wonderland - Destination Showcase
@iamamodel: I've spent I think about 20 days bushwalking/kayaking in southwest Tasmania, drinking straight from creeks and rivers, and never got sick...in my experience you are far more likely to ruin your holiday eating out in town! The worst food poisoning of my life was after eating at the chinese takeaway in Salamanca in Hobart. Several of us got it, and it did, in fact, ruin the last week of the holiday.

Anneke Beerten and Cody Kelley Sign with Alchemy Bicycles for 2018
@adrennan: I met a guy who worked with composites for non-MTB stuff, and he said one-off pieces actually aren't too bad, as you can make moulds from styrofoam or wood, but they're only good for one use. I've seen photos of custom carbon road bike frames that people have made that way as garage projects.

Tasmania, Australia's Mountain Bike Wonderland - Destination Showcase
Tassie does two things well. The first is amazing unique wilderness, so if you enjoy bushwalking (hiking) there's heaps of memorable stuff to do. The second is fancy food & drink. If you like wine, cheese, fresh food from local farms etc there's lots to try. (See them filling up the camelbak straight from the stream? That's legit. You usually don't need to filter water down there, as the streams and rivers really are that pristine. It tastes fantastic too - natural tannins from the buttongrass)
