Video: Ryan Nyquist at Crankworx Innsbruck
I want to see him and Tippie in the commentary box for every event. The less they know about it the better. Olympic diving? Tippie and Nyquist. Dressage? Tippie and Nyquist. Crokinole tournament? Tippie and Nyquist all day long.

First Look: Öhlins DH Race Fork
Go out and buy a £425 5" travel fork today and compare it with that 1999 bomber. It will be leagues better. You just won't have a prestige name on there to brag about to your friends. Just because a £1500 fork exists doesn't mean you need it.

First Ride: Pivot's New Firebird 29
@fecalmaster: $1300 and $3000 frames are available and significantly better than bikes were back in the misty sepia toned past you are pining for. Just because the top end of the market now exists doesn't mean that cheaper bikes don't exist. The Caliber Bossnut is £1000 and probably rides better than any bike, no matter the pricepoint, from 2008. It is able to do that because companies push the development of the bikes on their flagship models. If you don't think it is worth spending 5, 7 or 9 grand on a bike then don't spend that, it is as simple as that but don't act like there is no point in those bikes existing, they are making the bikes you do buy better.

Review: Giro Empire VR70 Knit Shoe
Once you try a proper stiff sole bike shoe you won't go back to trainers for anything more than riding to the shop.

Review: Giro Empire VR70 Knit Shoe
Drill a couple of drain holes in the bottom and you will be good to go ;) In winter I have to run neoprene shoe covers otherwise I end up with sole puddles by the end of the ride.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
You can run all of this and the GX cassette I am sure.

Video: The Gnarliest Enduro Race Section?
It is more technical for sure but the speed is so much lower that the overall gnarlyness is lower in my opinion. There is no chance of blowing over the bars and falling 20 feet onto a rock slab.

Ryan Leech On How the Risk Paradox Affects Mountain Bikers
@leelau: With system like the US where the hospitals are businesses they are trying to give the cheapest possible care at the highest possible price to make the most profit. The doctors, nurses etc obviously care about their patients but the management are there to make money. That's why cancer drugs that cost $200 to manufacture cost $30000 to the insurance company (and therefore the people paying for that insurance). With a single payer system where the hospital is owned by the payer they are trying to give the best possible care for the cheapest possible price as they have to stick to their budget. They will haggle, choose medication based on value rather than just which company offers the best margins etc. I pay less in taxes per month in total than Americans pay for health insurance alone and I know I can walk into a hospital and receive world class treatment without a bill to follow. The only people who benefit from a system like the Americans are the people who run it and the politicians they pay to keep it going.
