ION – Bike Wear Highlights 2017
what's the problem they want to present their new clothes line, but in an entertaining video. Any person who can read knows it's an ad the moment they see the preview on the news page. Still don't mind.

There's More to Morzine - Video
sam, you're so damn right. So far we've been staying in Chatel, Les Gets and Morzine. What makes this area so incredibly outstanding is that it's so widespread. But if you're staying in let's say Chatel and want to experience Les Gets or Champery and maybe grab some burgers at lunch you are basically just on transfer, and if you have some mechnicals you might not catch your transfer back (which is catastrophic in the case of Chatel because you'll be fucking stuck or you'll have to push your bike up some 500 meters of altitude). So please, at least leave some crucial ones like "Chaux Fleurie" open a bit longer. Or the whole area which would of course be even more awesome.

Absolute Black Oval Guide - Review
why is everyone voting down DrFlow's comment?! Just because OneUp certainly has some cool stuff doesn't mean he's wrong. The 77 designz freesolo has been on the market since Juny 2014 with the oval guide following the year after. OneUp has presented their chainguide 2015 and the oval version 2016. Get over it, fanboys. Btw, I've been using the combination of the absolute black chainring with the 77 designs oval guide and their bash guard. Flawless function at 50 grams in total.

The Coastal Crew: Skeptical - Video
I respect the costal crew, E-MTBs make a lot of sense to my (my girlfriend has one and it allows us to have a ton of fun riding trails together by leveling our fitness) but that BIGOTRY IS JUST SAD, DYLAN. "we do not allow them (E-MTBers) to climb up rather than use the shuttle. It is just not safe to have vehicle and bicycle traffic operating on the same road." It's not safe to have cars and some EBikers sharing a forest road? Riding in the same direction? What a lame excuse, it's what riders do everywhere in the world whether it be in the forests or in the cities. with that argument forestry could kick us out of every area we don't own ourselves. In fact, it shows that the coastal crew is just as worried as everyone else about E-MTBing having a huge impact on trail access, raising the need for trail maintenance (also in their park...) and undermining the acceptance of MTBers among hikers because the numbers of riders on trails will multiply and not all people need to earn their spurs and meters of trails any more the way it used to be.

The Evolution of the Specialized Enduro
great read (would be brilliant, if it also included a geo chart of let's say the Medium model through all those years). I never owned one, I critizised them a lot (especially that terrible 2007 model...), but it's undisputable the most iconic of all enduro bikes and there wouldn't be a better model to base such an article on.

Hope Technology: 5am - Video
such a great video. Outstandingly well produced - the shots themselves, the timing, the transitions, the composition. Absolutely love it. The idea and the riding as well, of course. I wonder - where was it shot?
