Kids Send Rampage-Sized Hucks in ‘Grompage’ - Video
Thanks for the calm, reasonable replies. It's good to hear different perspectives from other parents. Not shock at the downvotes, but it feels like this is a dialogue worth having.

Kids Send Rampage-Sized Hucks in ‘Grompage’ - Video
Thanks for the replies, parents. Glad to hear you take safety seriously. I can't personally reconcile what I see in the video with my risk tolerances, but I also haven't eased into it over the course of years. Not sure that I'd ever be okay with it, honestly, but best of luck to your kids!

Kids Send Rampage-Sized Hucks in ‘Grompage’ - Video
As a parent of three young kids, one of whom won her first XC race this weekend, there are a few things in that video that feel borderline irresponsible for kids that age to be riding. Kids aren't wired to make good risk-based decisions - it's the job of the parent to help provide reasonable boundaries that expand as they grow. 10' drops while in grade school is impressive, no doubt, but those kids don't really understand the risk - and they sure as hell aren't doing this without parent support/encouragement. Yay for fostering talent and pushing boundaries, but it should be done safely.

Ridden and Rated: Six Flat Pedals
Meh. Too small for me. I use them on my commuter bike, but far prefer my atlas pedals on my MTBs.

Yamaha to Launch Their Own eMTB Lineup
@Schlafmutzli: Yeah, I wish I could upvote his comments a dozen times. I'm thinking more in terms of lobbying organizations - IMBA and the like. Have any of them told ebikes to get bent?

Does anybody know of an MTB organization that has taken a hard stance against ebikes? I'd like to give them some money.

Fasthouse Enter MTB in Spring 2018
@Rubberelli: Yeah, same here. I don't think "punk rock" and marketing are natural friends in the first place, and without knowing his background, it feels like yet another corporate grab for the counterculture halo of punk.

That video was brilliant. I hope it's one of a series.
