Schwalbe Sets Sights On Manufacturing Tires From Recycled Rubber
@SimonJaeger: Just here to point out also, that technically doing burnouts on public roads isn't really allowed either?

Video & Photo Story: Unreal Single Track in Scotland with Scotty Laughland
As a relatively new resident of Scotland, I actually managed to ride in a lot of the places in this video series over one awesome week-long road trip. But there is just so much more in each location, let alone the places not even mentioned here- I feel very lucky to live here! Beautiful videos Scotty!

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 89 - The Derailleur Pickle
@mikelevy: Do the F1 podcast! Would love to hear it! Sure there are plenty of actual F1 podcasts out there, but there is something interesting hearing about it from people who you normally associate with something totally different. I am sure there are plenty of Pinkers who are into cars and bikes equally. I love the engineering of both and the intensity of the racing across both sports. Drawing comparisons could also be an interesting chat?

The Matchup: 2021 Trek Slash or Fuel EX? - All-Mountain Bike vs Trail Bike
I already own 3 Treks and even I did not need this video! I do get excited every time Christina does a video with her Slash because it is the same as mine, but this video felt like a marketing exercise without drawing any actual conclusions. Most folk on here will understand the basic difference between a trail and enduro bike. The video could have actually drawn some decent conclusions about “if you could only have one of these two which could you live with?”. There are probably many people in denial about it, but i think if we all examined our riding- many people ride gnarly ‘enduro style’ or even ‘downhill style’ trails sometimes, maybe they do a race here and there, do an occasional all day adventure ride and sometimes ride some more very tame trails- so which bike can do them all? Can a trail bike still be competitive at a race? How much tougher is a big rig to pedal around blue trail centre runs? Is it more fun to push a trail bike to it’s limits or let the enduro bike push yours? I know everyone already has an opinion on these questions, but it could have made a great vid with these two presenters and bikes.

DJI Launches Action 2 Camera with Magnetic Mounting
Will need to see how it lives up to their claims after a few reviews etc but excited to see someone try and pick up where the GoPro Session left off, still cannot believe it was discontinued. I wont be buying another GoPro in the increasingly massive Hero size unless they bring the Session back, so just waiting for someone to come along and offer a suitable replacement, so far it’s between this and the Insta360 Go2.

Video: DHaRCO Launches Commencal Muc Off Team Replica Race Kits
I love repping a brand from my home town now that I am riding on the opposite side of the world! Cant believe how much they have grown recently, getting onto podiums and onto some very talented riders around the world! Love the blue, I probably couldnt pull off the full Power Ranger look with matching pants but i think the jersey will look awesome with the rest my kit being black. Need something bright to stand out in the winter gloom
