Qualifying Results from the Leogang DH World Cup 2022
Woo hoo, Phil Atwill's tires held together and he qualified top 20. Hope he can repeat it in the final. Good to see Neko Mulally get in there too.

First Look: Deviate Claymore High Pivot Enduro Bike
I once interviewed for a job in Aberdeen and made a solemn promise to the Scottish gods that if I were hired, I'd buy a Highlander. Unfortunately the gods of Scotland apparently don't want to support small business.

Prevelo Bikes Announces Revised Zulu Series Bikes
@andelinc: I can see making the 20 in bike extra robust and marketing them toward 5-8 year olds who really shred, but 3-4 year olds just can't generate THAT much force. My son's best friend is a bowling ball/bmx racer and he never managed to destroy anything on his Woom 2 (the non-mountain 16 inch) riding it on trails and sending it over little jumps and it is way lighter than the Zulu 1. I would totally recommend the Zulu 1 as it is a great bike and there aren't a lot of small bikes with wider tires, which were really helpful for our off road adventures, but I'd prefer more Woom like construction for the smaller parts of the size range as a few pounds matter more than the ability to drop Rampage lines at that age.

Prevelo Bikes Announces Revised Zulu Series Bikes
My son had a Zulu One as his first bike and overall, we loved it. I liked the slack head angle and disc brakes and I think that both saved him a couple of times. My only complaint - if it's a complaint - is that it was built like I was going to ride it hard. It was bomb proof, but no kid riding a 14 in bike was going to be able to generate enough force to need that sort of strength. I'd have preferred that they shaved weight rather than gone overboard with strength. My son moved from the Zulu One to the Woom Off 4 (no suspension fork). The 14 inch Prevelo was ~16 pounds. The MUCH physically larger 20 inch Woom is just over 17.

Opinion: You Should Be Fixing Your Own Bike
I do sometimes. I enjoy it. But I'm only adequate at anything but the basics. I just don't do specific things enough to get really good at them . If I had a fleet of bikes and rode every day as my job, it would be different and I'd progress. But while I'll fix what needs fixing so I can ride, my bike inevitably feels crisper when I get a professional tune up.

5 Things We Learned from the 2022 Fort William DH World Cup
Didn't Gwin flat during qualifying? He certainly isn't on pace to be a podium threat, but missing the qualifying mark here seemed more bad luck than indication of where he's at.

Qualifying Results from the Fort William DH World Cup 2022
He just posted on Instagram that he had both a flat and a crash. Hopefully he can get things together for the rest of the year.

Qualifying Results from the Fort William DH World Cup 2022
I wonder what's happened to Phil Atwill this year? This is his second DNQ in a row and he wasn't very close. Last year he was pretty solid and if anything, it would seem like he'd have more backing this year.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Run a GPS Bike Computer?
I will sometimes track my rides with my phone, but if it's a trail I know and ride a lot, I usually don't bother.

Doghammer Claims the Bike Graveler is the First 100% Vegan MTB Shoe
What's not vegan about half the mountain bike shoes out there today? My Shimano shoes don't seem to have any leather in them and looking up the AM5 and GR9 on their website now, I don't see any non-synthetic materials. Is it just that no one checked the glue? Do they still use animal based glues for athletic shoes? Looking it up, it seems like most athletic shoe glues are polyurethane and thermoplastics. So I'm guessing that these guys just added some canvas and earth friendly colors.
