Video: Jordi Talks Brake Lever Position & Arm Pump in the Latest Episode of 'Dialed'
@philmtb99: I believe that's a bit of misinformation. It's not that carbon bars are soft and compliant but rather they absorb vibration better. Try smacking a carbon bar against a pole and then do the same with an aluminum bar. The aluminum will vibrate more than carbon. Typically though the carbon bar is stiffer than Aluminum. But I'm with you. Aluminum bars for me. Renthal to be specific.

Red Bull Rampage Fantasy Contest: Win a RockShox Boxxer Ultimate
It's impossible to really tell who will come out on top of an event that's judged like this. That and also not really knowing what all the riders lines are it's really just a stab in the dark and going off of past results/favoritism. That being said... 1st Lacondeguy 2nd Fairclough 3rd Salido (after seeing the redbull video the guy is just super stoked to be there and his line has potential)

For sale is a 2018 Giant Trance Advanced 1 carbon in size small. Bike is in mint condition with only a handful of local trail rides on it before I purchased a Transition Patrol Carbon and never looked back. Bike has a few notable upgrades. Swapped the stock Giant branded cockpit for a Race Face Aeffect 35 bar and stem setup with Deity Knuckleduster grips. Fork has a MRP ramp control cartridge installed. The biggest addition would be a full Ceramic Pro 9H coating on the entire frame. For those that don't know Ceramic Pro is usually used in automotive applications. But it works wonders on bikes. Dirt and mud just rolls off. The shop I used to work for provided it as a service and charged upwards to $450. Asking price for bike is $3200. PayPal accepted for payment. Prefer to deal locally but willing to ship. No cost for shipping. Please no low ballers. See below for full spec rundown. Frame: Advanced-grade composite w/ALUXX SL rear, Advanced forged composite upper rocker, 140mm Maestro suspension.....sooo carbon frame and rocker with aluminum rear triangle with Ceramic Pro 9H coating Fork: Fox 34 Float Performance Elite, FIT4 Damper, MRP Ramp Control Cartridge, Boost,150mm travel Shock: Fox Float DPX2 Performance, Trunnion mount Bar: Race Face Aeffect 35 Stem: Race Face Aeffect 35 Seatpost: Giant Contact S Switch, dropper, 30.9mm Saddle: Fabric Scoop Pedals:.

Ride Concepts Releases New Lineup of Flat & Clipless Footwear
I have a pair of the Wildcats. I have tried a lot of shoes trying to find something that compares to the grip of a Five ten especially after Adidas took over. For me the more grip the better but I also wanted a mid top for more support. The Wildcats have great support and are by far the best fit and feel. Finally to answer everyone's question, yes, yes the grip is just as good as Five Ten. You're welcome.

Rachel Atherton Out of Les Gets World Cup with Ruptured Achilles Tendon
I can speak from experience that an Achilles rupture is no joke. I had a complete tear of my Achilles back in 2017. It took 5 months for me to get back on the bike and let me tell you that's just the beginning. Muscles atrophy, balance is off and not to mention the mental side of it. "Will it tear again, what about my other ankle.?...." Gutted for Rachel. I'm sure she will be back but it will take some time before she is back on form

Start List: Vallnord World Cup DH 2019
I would take this list with a grain of salt. I'm pretty sure Tahnee isn't racing. Maybe starting to get some practice in. Who knows. Matt Walker is also listed as starting and he is racing the EWS.
