Yeti Cycles Will No Longer Use the Term 'Tribe' in Marketing
@Yetimike2019: If it's used in a positive setting, wouldn't that honour whoever identifies as a tribe? Either way, this was a shit move by Yeti, people are getting tired of this whole cancel culture bullshit (or maybe I should say biological male bovine excrement to not offend you?)

Yeti Cycles Will No Longer Use the Term 'Tribe' in Marketing
@Baller7756: "Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals." -C.S. Lewis I think this quote is quite fitting.

@snl1200: The word "tribe" is a completely neutral word, humans are tribal by nature, there is no negatives attached to the word itself, nor to the way it was used. The fact that this happened following fake outrage by people looking to take offense to as much as possible, does echo the current political climate, wether we want to admit it or not, and no matter how Yeti choose to word it, they did it due to pressure from a small group of politically motivated people. This happened as part of a broader attack on one of the most important liberties that exist anywhere in the world, freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is something that the majority of the world's population don't have. It is one of the most important contributions to humanity that ever came out of the USA, and something that people die for in some less fortunate countries, and people taking it for granted and excusing attacks on that liberty, I find extremely disturbing, even evil (nobody ever considers themselves to be evil though). Saying that this is just about this one case, is extremely naive, and in a way I wish I could disconnect and think that way too, but I can't, not anymore. I do see your point in how some words could be hurtful to some, but you can't go neutering language to appease those that might be offended, even if they legitimately are hurt by it, because the end result is much worse to so many more. Censoring language can never be looked at in such a way, it is extremely dangerous, as it can and will facilitate further degradation of human rights.

Video: Danny Hart Rides the Vink Link at Ch√Ętel Bikepark
@gtill9000: I'm assuming a 360 degree camera, due to how well it follows Danny. Could also be a gimbal, but if I were to bet, my money would be on a 360 camera.

Why Are We Using 12-Speed Drivetrains? - The Explainer
Got a 10-48 Garbaruk cassette with 11-speed X01 and Garbaruk cage on my hardtail, by far the best setup I've tried so far, and Shimano 12-speed is pretty much the only setup I haven't tried yet. My Garbaruk setup came in at roughly the same price as my GX Eagle stup, and performs much better, and less sensitive to bent hangers or micro adjustments to cable tension. Will probably go for this setup on all my bikes at some point.
