CBD is Being Marketed at Mountain Bikers, What Does That Mean?
@WAKIdesigns: Gotta be careful with myofascial treatments, highly specialized type of treatment that most professionals are not experienced/educated enough to do safely. Was told it's more for breaking down scare tissue within the muscles and what not. Wouldn't let anyone touch my back like that personally but my shoulders could use some work. It also hurts like hell until everything is broken down. Good luck getting your back fixed, dealing with 5 herniated discs myself. Getting old sucks, puff puff pass! lol

Adam Brayton's New Nukeproof Dissent World Cup Bike
@rideitall-bmx-dh-road-unicycle: cause if your racing and need to replace your brakes, brake line or derailleur cable then it's a headache and a waste of time.

Guerrilla Gravity's Less Expensive, US-Made Carbon Frame
@drunknride: That's the exact reason I'm teaching my kids, all under 8 yrs old about robotics and computer science. The future will be all about automation in every way possible. Progress or die. This coming from a carpenter/fabricator.

Chain Reaction Cycles Won't Sell You Shimano Parts if You're in North America
@Senna8730:Sorry, no attitude just fact. I guess you buy all your music from a local music store? Business models change, had shops seen the writing on the wall a decade ago and started to shift to online sales they could have possibly saved themselves from all this. It's a small possibility but one that would have been worth the effort considering how the sale of just about anything is made these days. Damn near every industry that has fought the online sales model is struggling to keep up. Hell, I can buy the same car from a local dealer through there online sales department and save upwards of $5,000 cause there trying to move volume to boost there numbers and clear the lot for more product. This could be a really good topic for an article, theres pro's and con's to discuss as well it would be nice to hear a legitimate 2 sided conversation about this subject. Not just a bunch anonymous people talking shit trying to validate their opinions. I personally enjoy having reasonable conversations with people who have different views on any subject, it's how things move forward and we learn to see differing sides of a subject.

Another dead business model trying to guilt consumers. Progress or die. Could really care less myself. Not my job to support companies cause there local, we live in a global economy, you're money spent supports someone locally somewhere.

2019 Maribor DH World Cup - What We Can Expect
Personally I think courses that are fast and bike parky end up becoming technical from a racing standpoint cause you're splitting hairs to make up speed. Gotta be mm perfect to take a win. But give me steep muddy roots all day with a sprinkle of off camber and a few rock gardens.

2019 Racing Rumors: Gwin Off YT, Ratboy to Cannondale, & More
@iqbal-achieve: I can agree with that, sounds logical. But if he was changing sponsorships then there's a good chance others are offering more then his current sponsors,money not included. I have to imagine WC DH race teams are operating at a loss. There the pinnacle of speed and technology in are sport, therefore certain companies with the funds will pay whatever it takes to be seen on top, or not. Nobody's getting rich from DH racing..ok,maybe Gwinner and a small handful of others who used there time wisely. i.e Gracia, Tomac, Lopes etc.

@iqbal-achieve: When you have a finite amount of time to be on top in a sport that can leave you broken and disabled with a simple mistake, then anyone damn well deserves to squeeze as much money out of it while they can. Especially when you're at the level of Gwin. I do appreciate riders who stick with a brand but loyalty doesn't pay you're bills when you're retired or forced out do to injury.

@jclnv: Rightfully so, he's put in more hard work and sacrificed most of his life to get to where he's at. I've spent the past 25yrs developing my skills that now require a certain amount of money to get me in the door as well. Know your worth and you won't be taken advantage of.
