Review: Schwalbe Tacky Chan Tire - Born on the Race Course
"Now I'm just waiting for the Shreddy Vedder, Michael Sipe, and Loose Springsteen models to be announced" *Schwalbe product team frantically taking notes* - "Yeah, those are awful ideas....give us some more terrible ideas we would never put into production..."

Head to Head Review: 2023 RockShox Zeb vs Fox 38
That's mentioned in the article, sounds like Fox makes a lot more money outside the US on their stuff.

Bosch Expands ABS For E-bikes With TRP & Tektro
The market for dirt bikes and dualsports is quite different from emtb, particularly the more XC/trail type emtb. Dirt bikes are almost exclusively ridden by enthusiasts who want to get slidey in the dirt and don't mind feeling like they need skills to control the bike (even if they actually don't have the skills) eMtb has a large portion of its riders who just want to go and safely get exercise on gentle trails and definitely don't want to risk skidding and crashing.

I tested the Shimano version at Eurobike. Its insane. You can just mash the brake lever as hard as you can and you just...slow down. I am not sure I like it, but its impressive as heck.

Review: Troy Lee Designs' New Flowline Helmet
@blowmyfuse: There is fox, giant, laser and specialized helmets under $100 in this list, all with MIPS and 5 star ratings: https://helmet.beam.vt.edu/bicycle-helmet-ratings.html All of those companies are owned by different groups.

Review: Troy Lee Designs' New Flowline Helmet
@bishopsmike: I think it is actually the opposite of what is true. A greater feeling of safety without a proportional increase in actual safety would likely lead to more injuries as you might ride in a way which is more risky and therefore suffer more and worse crashes than if you felt less safe but were equally protected.

Review: Troy Lee Designs' New Flowline Helmet
Serious question, what makes some helmets so much money? They are single use items. the production methods and materials are reasonably inexpensive. A lot of helmets featuring Mips with 5 star safety ratings are like £50 but most with the same technology and safety are well over £100. Is it just a case of the price is what people will pay or are there features which actually cost more to make in most helmets which are missing from the cheaper ones?

Throwback Thursday: 4 Bikes Turning 30 in 2023
Its crazy how some of the bikes in the 20 years article seem like they could be modern with a few geometry tweaks, the bikes in this one are completely different. 93-03 was a massive shift for mtb.

Transition Releases Relay Lightweight eMTB
Don't know about shipping US to Canada and vise versa but shipping UK to North America the commodity codes, import duties and dangerous goods shipping requirements etc are very different between a complete bike with a motor and battery and a collection of parts including a motor and battery. It is much easier and cheaper to ship the complete thing.
