MonEddy

Cycling nut in his early thirties, who loves everything bike, especially if it has to do with mountain bikes! Been riding for 22 years and still can't get enough of the sport in all its guisses. A makor fan of DH and enduro. Especially fond of mega technical DH trails such as those littering the Chamonix Valley. Rocks, roots and gnarl equal a very happy Ed.

Troy Lee Releases Adidas Collab Race Kit
@sam264: interesting to hear. I haven’t brought any of their kit (aside from my forth Daytona helmet incarnation) recently but the TLD kit I brought 8 years ago is all still going strong (jerseys are looking a little scuffed on the shoulders and elbows). Shame if their quality has really as you say dropped

Troy Lee Releases Adidas Collab Race Kit
@troyleedesigns: sorry to say and apologies if this comes across as being disrespectful,but I kind of feel that this collaboration was a bit of a marketing/branding mistake. Adidas do have some amazing materials technology, I just can’t help but think that their brand image doesn’t really fit with mountain biking, give its social negative connotations. I’m not being snobbish, just realistic regarding the image the brand portrays here in the UK. Adidas internally Licensing their technology to five10 for a collaboration with you might have been a better brand move?

@sam264: my sentiments exactly. At least Kappa hasn’t invaded our beloved sport yet

Agreed. Unfortunately in my case of coming from Essex, the Adidas brand has serious Chav connotations. No offence to chavs, but I don’t particularly want to be branded as one. Perhaps Adidas would have been better placed using their Five10 brand as the collaboration label

UCI Aiming for 5 Round Snow Downhill World Cup in 2020
@nouseforaname: this is only about the olympics for the UCI and it’s naive to thinks otherwise given that the IOC made an explicit statement about 5-6 years ago saying that downhill mountain biking would only ever be included in the Winter Olympics and never the summer. It is not a matter of “inventing” a new sport as snow DH has been around for years (think about the old Winter x-games and the on going European Winter snow DH races).

Possibly because the UCI intending on bidding for DH as an Olympic discipline. DH would only be logistically possible with the Winter Olympics given that the Winter Olympics necessitate reasonable sized mountain with chairlift access for alpine DH/Super G skiing

Fox Factory Plans to Move HQ from California to Georgia [Updated]
@Golden-G: sadly agree with you. When you speak out the truth you are labelled a prophet of fake news. How absurd that the speaking the truth is twisted by idiots and made out to be fake/untrue. Economics/facts are Economics. Just because individuals don’t like hearing the truth or, are such narcissists that they can’t handle hearing it does not make true facts fake!
