Porsche Acquires Majority Stake in Greyp eBikes
@Ozziefish: Means never justify any ends, because the means always end up becoming the ends, to paraphrase Huxley. JP

Porsche Acquires Majority Stake in Greyp eBikes
@jaame: Funny how you can make fundamentally illiberal ideas (ban this, prohibit that, reduce the population, etc) appeal to liberals if you wrap them up in an eco context. Have a look at what you just wrote and ask yourself what major political movement of the 20th century it has most in common with. You may not like the answer. I find a lot of this kind of talk worrying - it has all the self righteous zeal of a religious movement, and little regard for nuance or the actual reality of the world. JP

5 Things We Learned from Red Bull Rampage 2021
@LemonadeMoney: Absolutely! It felt like watching cheesy US sports pundits analysing a football game. Bring in Warner and a bit of banter. JP

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - Adaptability Meets Affordability
Surprised no one has mentioned how ugly this bike is (as are all Specialized with the same frame design). That single sided support that joins the top and seat tubes is a hideous piece of design. I know that looks are bit that important for bikes, but this one is bad enough to make me not want it. JP

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Opt For Performance or Value From Your Tires?
Maxxgrip is much grippier on roots and when it’s wet. Doesn’t make so much difference in the dry, but there is still a difference. Rolling resistance is probably worse, but it may just be the extra weight of the tyre as Maxxgrip are rarely available in anything lighter than did. I run them (or ultra soft Magic Marys) front and rear as I don’t care how fast the bike is uphill, but I do care about grip when going downhill. I’m not sure why people run less grippy tyres tbh. JP

Tom Pidcock: "I Didn't Feel Good but Everyone Just Told Me No One Will Feel Good"
@ksilvey10: The U.K. only functions at 15C with light rain; any colder/hotter/wetter/dryer and the country grinds to a halt/people die in the streets/the whole country floods/we run out of drinking water, respectively. JP

Video: Chromag Announces Full Suspension Kid's Bike - 'The Minor Threat'
@blackthorne: Not really true - full suspension makes it much easier for kids to ride proper trails - on smaller wheels a hard tail is really hard work on anything other than smooth blues. JP

10 Mullet DH Bikes from Round 1 British National Downhill Series
@oldmanjoe: Indeed. I rode a 29er at Fort William earlier this week (I normally ride a 27.5) and I just don’t think they work for riders any smaller than me on steep stuff (I’m 5’9). I know people will point out some random female DH or enduro riders who are on 29ers and win, but I still think they’d be quicker on a mullet.
