How Do You Judge a Slopestyle Event? - Crankworx Innsbruck 2017
@dazach: uhmmm... that doesn't make any sense. Style is something that can only be achieved AFTER people understand what it is fundamentally they're trying to accomplish. Progression is related to TECHNICAL levels of difficulty. If there were no new tricks being landed, the discipline would shrivel up and die. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it's not true.

How Do You Judge a Slopestyle Event? - Crankworx Innsbruck 2017
Absolutely correct. Rheeder is undoubtedly much smoother and more stylish. But Rogatkin is doing what his forebears did, wild, crazy-big tricks that didn't really consider "style" during those formative attempts, so much as PUSH the sport to new levels of progression. I think that part of the judging was carried out just fine. But I can't believe Emil Johannsen's second run didn't score much higher.

Fox Offers Fork Top-Cap Sockets and Seal Drivers
Seriously... I tend to roll my eyes when people complain about runaway price gouging from the bike industry, but come on... $30 for something that MAYBE cost them $1 to make. And ONLY after two other companies started offering the same thing? Lame...

Chromag Launches First Tech Clothing Line - First Look
I'm suuuuuuper picky about fit... and those shirts looks like they will do the job nicely. But WHY the traditional crew neck on the jerseys?!?! V neck is where it's at in terms of comfort! Great looking gear (especially the wool jacket), and I'll definitely be picking some up.

Injured Rider Unsuccessful in Lawsuit Against Whistler Bike Park
@DMal: I'm not a lawyer, but waivers are o it as good as the circumstances under which they get trotted out. If a poorly built/maintained structure caused injury, or a rental bike was in disrepair, then any judge would take that into consideration under a reasonable expectation of safety. So I assume if something fell apart and directly resulted in injury, it would probably be a slam dunk for the plaintiff.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
I think it sounds like the perfect bike for DH park rental fleets. In other words, ideal for beginners. Most newbs can't yet appreciate nuance like "liveliness, poppy, playful and personality", but I'm sure anyone who's new to lift assisted-riding could benefit greatly from something so remarkably composed and easy to set up. Also, I'd be very surprised if we don't see a full DH version, and also a lighter trail version that perhaps has a livelier nature?

Injured Rider Unsuccessful in Lawsuit Against Whistler Bike Park
My guess is he wasn't expecting to actually win any lawsuit, and that he was hoping for a settlement out of court. I feel for the guy, because this kind of life changing injury is a possibility for ALL of us, no matter how safe you ride. But he damn well knew the risks, and while I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy, he now he needs to learn to live with the results.

Scott Genius 2018 - First Ride
LOVE the look of the orange Foxes, oddly this is the first bike I've seen where it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.

Staff Rides - Mike Levy's Rocky Mountain Element
Yeah... not sure how this SRAM joke stays in play? The Guides are more or less universally loved. My Guide RSC's have transformed my riding. If I hadn't already found my favorite brakes, I'd totally give the TRP's a try.

Coil Shock or Air Shock? – Tales From the Pits at Fort William
@silvbullit: oh, I think ABS will prob be the single worst innovation to come. Professional cyclists across all disciplines will no doubt embrace them. But I'll never have them... Auto-damped suspension on the other hand... take my money now!
