The Ultimate Guide to Red Bull Rampage 2017
@mikekazimer: I think the term 'guide' is odd when used retrospectively in this sense. Round-up definitely makes more sense. A great round-up though! thx.

Patrol 672 – Review
Is this just a rebadged Nukeproof Mega? It's uncanny.

Cedric Gracia Questions if Something is Wrong with Rampage - Video
Seeing the preview vids, and seeing that most riders are mostly doing the same lines as last year, I'm not remotely excited any more. I have started to go off it a little bit. It's still a spectacle to some degree, but it's definitely not going in the direction I'd like it to - only my personal preference obvs - In a perfect world it'd be a new place every year, scratching in new lines, no sand bags. Only a few days digging at most. It should be about an exciting creative route down the mountain. Not who can do the most backflips.

Randoms Round 1 - Eurobike 2017
@NotAnotherClimb: Why do you need to replace them if they last forever? ;-) But seriously, I have had the opposite experience. Not sure I own ANY Velcro that's ever worn out but most MTB shoe laces die after 6 months and are a PITA to tie / untie once they're muddy a few times. And to @ka-brap's point, Velcro specifically works well I n the wet. It make no difference, its plastic. That's one of its great qualities.

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@Benito-Camelas: he's merely differentiating between unidirectional carbon (where it all runs in one direction) and woven (where it runs in two opposing directions - the woven has much better impact resistance but is heavier per given area. So using the UD fibres sympathetically to the frame members direction means it's strong but light. Making the outer layer woven rather than UD means that portion of the wall thickness is much stronger. Mixing the two types means a better compromise between weight/strength and impact resistance and also allows tuning of the rigidity/flexibility.

Ask Pinkbike: Tubeless Setup, Cleat Trouble, Wide Tires
I seem to be very lucky or have a flawless combo - Stans Flow. Schwalbe Tires. I just put the tire on as usual, make sure the bead isn't sat right down on the inner section of the rim bed (It usually isn't anyway) and then 8-10 sharp strokes on the pump using the standard valve with the core left in, and it seats first time every time, then just keep pumping to finish. Way less hassle than a installing a new tube.

TSG Launches MTB Goggles
I'm all for kicking the bullshit out of advertising, but even I think that a brand new product release should have an opening line that's a bit more sexy/enticing than "The Presto goggle fits perfectly with all TSG and most other brands helmets and offers everything a true mountain biker needs". Each to their own tho.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@scotttherider: I thought the same. The bottom link on the Polygon is WAY shorter oddly. My brain can't quite work out how the swingers slides up that stanchion when that link is SO short. Strange...
