Stefano Lanzi Tests Positive for Clenbuterol
@skiandmtbdirtbag: why would anyone use PEDs when there is no test for autologous transfusions?

Pinkbike Poll: What Was the Greatest Advancement In Mountain Bike Technology?
I picked modern geo. I couldn’t pick hydraulic disc brakes because I had a bike with hydraulic rim brakes and they were almost as good, so that was a pretty minor performance jump. #2 is dropper posts because modern geo doesn’t work without it. #3 is “big wheels” - 27 or 29, doesn’t matter. My 2c

Video: Brooke Goudy on Removing Barriers & Why Representation Matters
The Pinkbike comment section seems to have two big ideas: 1 bikes are too expensive and 2 we shouldn’t be told to get more people into biking. I wonder what would happen if this audience found out that these two big ideas are directly related, and that basic laws of economics (“economies of scale”) teaches us that increasing the consumer population drives down prices due to the vanishing cost of overhead as a fraction of build cost. Very literally, getting more people into riding bikes makes bikes cheaper. That’s ECON 101. Not in the short term as demand surges but in the long run as manufacturing stabilizes to match demand. I love this site but please understand, as a population this is a case study in cognitive dissonance and it’s not a good look.

Shimano Launches Ultread Soles & 2022 Footwear Range
@bigtim: they did! The trailcross bike packing shoe vents water faster than any other shoe it’s true. I honestly have no idea what they’re for

The official bike of Friday Fails? Maybe so but that is top value in a world where all suspension patents are expired

Shimano Launches Ultread Soles & 2022 Footwear Range
@mountainsofsussex: I stockpiled ELCs when they were discontinued and I’m on my last pair this winter. When they’re shredded I’m thinking I’m going to convert to clipless in the winter unless someone builds a waterproof platform shoe again

Video: Does Riding Chainless Make You Faster?
I had to remove a chain before a 2k foot descent once due to a hub failure. For me the part I can never forget is how much better the rear suspension performed without a chain. This affect- Noted by Gwin when he won a World Cup after a chain break- is the reason behind high pivot bikes and crank elastomers (Ochain). Watched the whole thing waiting to hear about suspension dynamics without a chain. So what’s the deal, did you notice a change in suspension dynamics? Last I checked commencal is a single pivot that should be radically transformed by a lack of chain. No difference, or just not noteworthy?

Leatt Reveals Eco-Friendly Product Range & Plastic Free Packaging on 2022 Products
I have some stuff made of tencel wool mix that’s six years old now and my favorite clothes. Feels brand new. Only complaint is I can’t find more of it anywhere.

DJI Launches Action 2 Camera with Magnetic Mounting
@jojotherider1977: that’s the thing it has an lcd screen. And it lets you use the lcd screen to change modes. It just locks a bunch of those modes behind an appwall. For no reason.

DJI Launches Action 2 Camera with Magnetic Mounting
@jojotherider1977: I agree that it doesn’t make any sense but it’s documented behavior. Big parts of the hero session just aren’t accessible without the app, most importantly time lapse mode which is all I use it for (one photo a minute for long gravel rides). There are big long threads on the GoPro forums about people getting logged out in the wilderness and lugging their GoPro brick home. This is a well known thing.
