Bike Check: Danny Hart's High Pivot Cube Two15 Prototype
Is that white cable going to the rear getting eaten by the idler during compression? (pic near the top)

Video: 5 Value Full-Suspension Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
I guess the bike industry won - it seems we're now regarding a $3500USD bike as 'budget' :( How MTB is a growing sport at all is bewildering to me. How many new riders outgrow their $500 hardtail-from-the-garage, look into an upgrade, see the 'budget' full-sus bike is the price of a used car and just nope out of the sport forever?

Why Are So Many Road Cycling Teams Starting to Race XC?
Turns out being juiced to the eyeballs on whatever works for grinding up tarmac roads also works for grounding up dirt tracks, and the explosive growth of mountain biking means there's now has enough eyeballs on it to be worth the time switching bikes

Nina Hoffmann Chose Not to Race in Leogang Following Concussion Symptoms
You can't be too careful, even the first hit can ruin your life. I have a mate who smacked his head while skiing last year, and it made him basically unable to function. Weeks barely able to get out of bed, headaches, weakness, fatigue and a host of mental problems triggered by it including anxiety attacks and severe depression. He didn't manage a full day back at work for 8 months and he's still a complete mess. If you fall and hit your head, just walk or cruise out and take some time off. It's not risking that trip through hell.

Video: Winning Runs from the Leogang World Cup DH 2021
It like the commentators don't understand how splits work, either that or they intentionally talked bollocks to increase hype. Daprela was up 2.5 seconds into the woods, made a mistake then only crossed the line two tenths up. I don't understand why they were going on about the "impossible" comeback when he was only 1.2 back before the spot Daprela got bogged down and lost three seconds. Troy was ahead of the time he needed to be for the whole run.

Thought Experiment: What's the Heaviest Trail Bike We Could Build for $10k?
@drfunsocks: I think they just did it. My 114,853kg '06 Kona Coiler was raved about back in the day as being usable for all-round trails, epic rides, and being able to breeze up the hill you wanted to pound down afterwards. But I'd probably rather take a modern DH sled on an XC course than pedal the Coiler in anger these days. I swear you get more vertical than forwards acceleration on that thing. The technology has advanced so much, expectations have changed.

Video: Pirelli is Developing a Gravity Tire Line with Fabien Barel
@mybaben: Michelin brought tires that couldn't handle the high speed, banking, and unexpectedly abrasive surface, and the teams + FiA couldn't come to an agreement on a rule-bend that would make it safe. So the Michelin users withdrew from the race leaving only the Bridgestone teams - 6 of the original 20 cars.

Ship Stuck in Suez Canal May Further Contribute to Bike Parts Shortage
They're also optimized to run their engines on the worst of the worst fuel oil to minimize costs. Large ships run on what is known as 'bunker fuel', which is the dregs of crude oil left over once everything else useful has been distilled out of it. This stuff is literally only one step above bitumen. It's such sludge that they need to pre-heat it to make it liquid enough to pump into the engines, and so filthy (loaded with sulfur etc) that most ports ban the burning of it - the ships run on more regular diesel near land, then switch to the cheaper trash once they're """outside the environment""".

Eminent Cycles Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy to Restrucure Debts
Man I've never seen these before but I think it looks wicked. Way cooler than adding another boring option to the three dozen boring pre-existing Trek / Giant / Scott / Kona / GT / Cube / whatever cookie-cutter vertical-shock horst link bollocks is on the market these days.

Review: 2021 Specialized Demo Race - DH Bike Week
That line about the prospect of rocks getting caught and cronched in the frame makes me kinda nervous. This is an expensive bike, and rocks aren't exactly rare to come across.
