We Went To Taiwan and Started a Bike Company...
I've never known Southern Californians to be realistic, but apparently we are because I have never heard of anyone thinking they can start a bike brand. Even though we may be only behind BC as the highest concetration of mtb'ers anywhere (and bike tourists as well) there is only Intense and Foes located here (am I forgetting any?). I've known dozens of people who made skateboards, because that is pretty easy, but none to have dreamed of starting a bike company. And there's tons of cash here with seemingly everyone trying to start some sort company to get rich (even school teachers). So the entire concept of this video seems bonkers to me, but based on all these comments, evidently people everywhere else are a bit delusional.

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
@Kainerm: the UCI clearly doesn't take rider input, but they have to take public input to make revenue (if sponsors pulled out of a controversial track for instance), so the riders only option is to let the public know something is wrong.

Pinkbike Poll - Are World Cup Racers Right To Complain About Tracks?
It seems like a ridiculous question. Everything at the X Games is made with rider input from the beginning. The Megaramp was designed by Danny Way. At one point, when ESPN tried getting rid of vert because of lack of viewer interest, all the top skate pros threatened to boycott and so ESPN put it back in, whether it was televised or not. It seems crazy that these courses are not designed with rider input in the first place. They should be grabbing 5 or so top riders and putting them in charge of going to Leogang in the off season to make changes, new sections etc. And then another 5 at another track. At least then other riders can complain like 'Gwin and Rachel wanted this bike park track that I don't really like". But my guess is if WC riders did design a bike park style track, it would have insane speeds that mere mortals like us could not handle and everyone would be okay with it.

@dro-cfr: Intense bikes are great. They are one of the most popular brands in Southern California and you will find tons of M16 and Tracers at DH trails. I've never really heard of many problems. I do know a guy who cracked a couple of rear triangles on his Carbine 27.5 though.

Pinkbike Poll: Not So Fast, Punc!
WC and EWS are two very different puncture problems in that there is an easy solution for EWS and none for WC. In EWS less climbing would lead to racers using heavier tires. They can't risk using too heavy ones now or they will be exhausted on the final stages. As for WC? New tech is the only hope!

The Campaign for Worse Bicycles – Opinion
@mattwragg: I think the psychology of why you think this way about cars and bikes is you want to obsess about them by constantly needing to tinker with them to make them better- an angleset here, an offset bushing there, etc. If the bike just works and all you think about is the trail, you're not really happy. You're a gearhead. You also work for Pinkbike and shitty bikes are generally not being sent to you to review, so you are thinking that they all are too perfect.

The Campaign for Worse Bicycles – Opinion
@jordanneedsafork: You mean no one in Europe. American car lovers either go for the massive hp muscle car dragsters, or the Japanese tuner zippers to race through metropolitan streets. Euro sports cars are as rare here as dual crowns on an AM bike.
