Maxxis Shows Off New Downhill Tire - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Regarding Aggressor in 27.5x2.5... will this be a Wide Trail tire? My Minion DHR Wide Trail is about shot but I can wait 6 more weeks to try an Aggressor WT!

Canyon Bicycles Now Available Direct in the USA - Crankworx Whistler 2017
Would've garnered a bit more interest if they did a big splashy reveal in the actual country their selling bikes too! I'm sometimes wonder whether these bike companies should just focus on riding and making bikes and leave the PR to someone who has a clue. Yes, Whistler is where everyone is right now but who gives a flying f**k? It seems like more of a snub than anything... as though the real estate is cheap enough in San Diego county, but the riding certainly isn't? Put on large events in SoCal and throughout the southwest you dummies...

Bell Launches 3 New Helmets for 2018 - First Look
I've been poking around looking for additional "color ways" on the Super DH... man are they all ugly and very 90's looking. Except for maybe the desert tan and black, but I don't want a black helmet in the southwest during the summer. Bell, please offer some colors that are a little less weird!

Is This Linkage Fork the Future of Suspension? - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I'd be caught on this before I got caught on an Ellsworth. Yeah the new ones look less goofy, but man the previous generations were fugly.

I might be wrong but It seems like this suspension platform is on everyones new bikes these days. And the trunnion mount seems to be propagating widely as well.

New Specialized 2FO 2.0 Flat Pedal Shoes - Review
I owned two pairs of the Teva flats and I've now owned two pairs of the 2F0 flats. They are very similar. With the 2F0s having a decidedly burlier upper. After trying 5.10 in between 2FOs and being very disappointed, I recommend giving the 2FOs a shot.

New Specialized 2FO 2.0 Flat Pedal Shoes - Review
Except 5.10s are trash and way overhyped.

New Specialized 2FO 2.0 Flat Pedal Shoes - Review
I couldn't stand the 5.10 Freeriders that I got earlier this year. I bought them after my first pair of 2FOs wore out because everyone goes on and on about how great 5.10a are I figured it was time to try them. The craftsmanship/materials felt cheap. The fit was sloppy and much too flexy in my opinion. And the much ballyhooed grip of stealth rubber left me scratching my head as to why everyone has such a boner for it. Went right back to 2FO flats and happy to buy these when my current pair wears out.

Too Long? Too Slack? Not Enough? – Pinkbike Poll
I'm of the opinion that yes, most manufacturers just don't want to be "that old man". My Santa Cruz 5010 V1 is the most ridiculously fun bike I've ever ridden. Against the common wisdom (and probably common sense)I ride it everywhere from flows XC to the most technical trails at bike parks and places like Sedona. Is it outmatched by the terrain at those latter places? Maybe... Do I have more fun on a bike that isn't always the most stable and "fastest"? F**k yeah I do. I far prefer laser quick handling, maneuverability, and the playfulness a bike like this brings me on every ride. I get worked on the more technical trails but it's always more fun for me. I'm even a little miffed that they changed the geo as much as they did for V2, which is why I'll prob find a gently used V1 frame when my current one wears out. There are times when I wish I had a more forgiving bike, because it would be less tiring on some trails, but that feeling soon fades as I remember how many times that I experienced those wild moments where I almost lost it, which are sometimes the best parts of riding.
