Peaty's Tubeless Sealant
I can't keep you from doing it, of course but: IT'S FUCKING IGNORANT (to describe it as polite as possible) TO USE GLITTER IN YOUR SEALANT. IF YOU TEAR OR BLOW A TYRE THE GLITTER WILL STILL BE AROUND IN THE WOODS OR WHEREEVER WHEN YOU'RE LONG DEAD. Or can I expect you to come back and pick up 1000 pieces of glitter one by one so it doesn't pollute our trails for years and decades? Good to see a biodegradable option, Cheers to Peaty!

Serfaus Fiss Ladis: Two Halves – Photo Epic
I respect the given objectives, but given the overall costs of the sport I feel like it's still a fair price given the investments in maintainance and growth. Other regions in Austria like Saalbach however found a better way in my opinion by including the daypass if you book overnight stays in one of the hotels or hostels, thereby assuring indirect returns for the region while keeping the overall costs lower. On the other hand, a simple day pass in Whistler would cost you $61, the more money you pay the more budget the bikepark has to play with. ;) BTW: I've only used the bikepark yet and it has some really good tracks, especially the more natural style tracks.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?
"This is one of the causes of wheels going out of true—a symmetric wheel will stay true better because it is not moving the rim around as it is ridden." An article that argues on logic and physics makes such a bold assumption. Sorry, that's just bullshit. BTW Cannondale achieved all things in question (perfectly symmetric wheel with 142mm hubs) with their Ai Drivetrain, it wasn't proprietary either. Still neigher the industry nor the magazines or customers really jumped onto the train.

Devinci's 30th Anniversary YYZ Bike
you know 26" is dead as f*ck if a 1987 replica bike sports another wheel size. Nice bike though.

Commencal's New E-Bikes
@cvoc: well, you might be right, I've just been in Graubünden and on two days we saved ourselves some of the uphill meters via Gondola and Postbus. That way, there's at least a benefit for the local economy, but your point is valid.

Commencal's New E-Bikes
It's not the joy you can have riding that ever made me questioning E-Bikes, it's the effect they have and will have on our sport. In the Alps like in many other places we use trail networks that were built for hikers. Often, our presence is tolerated but actually often against the official rules. Well, how will twice as many runs, twice as much conflict and twice as much erosion affect that acceptance? And there's more, cause first it won't just be twice as much but even more bike traffic and second it shifts the image of MTBers from sportsman who work their way up up the hills to enjoy nature to fun-seekers who don't care about circumstances and consequences too much. Would be a shame to see our sport being restricted to some forest roads, trail centers and bike parks because of that.
