Bike Check: Steve Peat's Santa Cruz Hightower LT - Trans Madeira 2018
Well, since most of our ancestors are from your side of the pond, apparently coming from we-like-to lecture-you-tight-ass-twat-land, we'll have to come up with a clever name for condescending, arrogant, and self-righteous that fits on the side of a tire. Oh, and Gregs ancestors, probably Dutch, again, from your side of the pond.

Video: Tom Wheeler's Ingenuity Lets Him Ride One Handed
Back in the day I used to race with a guy who lost his arm from the elbow down. He didn't wear a prosthetic, and race time he put on an old-school prosthetic with a metal hook, and held the bar somehow with that, and would crush the races. I personally think that all you dudes who think past your injuries and disabilities and keep riding are the most hard-core of the hard-core.

Review: Crankbrothers' Klic Digital Floor Pump + Burst Tank
Porter Cable compressor from Home Depot for $99, Topeak Smart Gauge for $30, boom, done. Bike shop use? Any self-respecting bike shop has at least a 50 gallon compressor in the back, no one is going to dick around with a floor pump at the shop. And for those who whine about "taking it to the trailhead or bike park", why would you change a tire at the trailhead instead of home? And why not charge your compressor at home and take it to the bike park? Its only 3-6gallons, not that big, but fully charged holds enough air to seat 4 tires. Most modern cars also have outlets in them. I don't mind spending the money for a quality item, but $225 for an imported pump thats probably marked up 200% is a bit egregious.

Aaron Gwin's Mystery Derailleur - Leogang DH World Cup 2018
Well that's what happens when your one of the best at what you do, have smart management, and a good head on your shoulders. You get a big-ass house.

Tech Briefing: New Riding Kit, Colour-Enhancing Glasses, Tough Bike Bags & More - June 2018
I appreciate a fine pair of shades, but buying expensive glasses to ride with is a complete waste of money. The second they hit the ground (and they will hit the ground at some point), or you wipe them down without first washing every grain of grit off, they will scratch. No matter what high-tech coating they claim to have. Buy the cheap shit from the hardware store, throw away when scratched.

Spanish Company Gemini Announces €650 1-Piece Bar & Stem
Dentist? We've moved beyond Dentist, into Hedge Fund Manager territory. There aren't enough teeth in the world. You need to be managing a pretty lucrative Ponzi scheme to afford some of the "New High End" stuff these days.

Spanish Company Gemini Announces €650 1-Piece Bar & Stem
Right, because making a handlebar and stem is some kind of dark art. Up there with shitting golden eggs. There aren't any other companies making awesome stems and bars, for like the last 10 years. This is the equivalent of putting a gold wrap on your Lambo.

They have to cover the stellar production value of the video, that can't be cheap. Plus judging by the number of computer screens, it took an army of uber-cool hipster-designers in wide-brim hats to engineer this, and they don't work for free hats and T-shirts.

Video: Sam Hill Rides the New Lyrik
If you're thinking about getting a new fork, I'd say save yourself some cash and get the Luftkappe. Best $90 US I ever spent on my bike, transformed my old Pike. Takes a couple of rides to dial it in, but huge difference. As far as Fox goes, its seems that RS is always half a step behind.

Video: The Kona Team Bikepacks to & from the Whiskey Off Road
Second best vacation. The vacations that involve hookers, cocaine, and big gaps in memory get first place.
