First Look: EVOC's New Hip Pack and Frame Bags - Garda Trentino 2019
MSR trail shot filter works around here because there are streams and ponds all over. Other places like Moab that won’t really work.

Counterpoint: We Need Suspension Lockout Levers
I hear people say that a rider will waste energy without some sort of shock platform or lockout. How much?

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
I agree 100%. The question I have is: how much, if any energy is supposedly wasted without a climb switch? I ride my Bronson fully open fork and shock all the time. I do flip them switches from time to time just to see and I really don’t feel any difference. But I rarely ride smooth climbs. It’s almost always steep and rough and I want my suspension to smooth things out and provide traction. And would be that rider that forgets to switch to descend mode. Or move that ridiculous TALAS back to full travel.

Qualifying Photo Epic: Starting From Zero - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
A lot of ski cross and downhillers use an air bag for protection now. Would these be applicable to mountain bike DH? Dianese make one called D-air.

Crash Tested: iXS Trigger Knee Pads
I’m running the Carve pads. Comfy enough but too short at the top. I hit my knee last year right near the top where the pad is thin. These seem similar and that is a failing grade for me. But many pads out there are not tall enough.

Video: Friday Fails #65
Yeah. I think that the must figure that the helmet is tight enough that a strap isn’t needed. Just about every week you see some ding dong crash and immediately remove the helmet indicating no strap.

Pinkbike Poll: How Do You Prefer to Get to the Top of a Descent?
I live in Whistler about a ten minute ride from Creekside. I never go to the park. Too crowded. I much prefer getting out there, way out there exploring new terrain and trails and places where I rarely see anyone. Other bikers are usually cool but I find hikers can be annoying. Parents with noisy kids complaining that my dog barked. People that can’t share the trail. Stinky tourists with sippy cups of shitty coffee standing 9 abreast looking at you coming up the trail and not moving out of the way. Climbing is good for the soul and body. Standing in lines with too many people is a waste of my time.

4 New Materials That Could Improve Carbon Fiber
@gmoss: Yes. There are a number of asbestiform minerals. Chrysotile asbestos isi think the most common. Riebekite is another. My understanding is that really tiny asbestos fibres and larger ones are cleared out by the lungs but there is an intermediate size that impales the lung lining and that is the issue. Glass fibres are similarly nasty scaring the lungs. Carbon fibres are also nasty. A lot of this stuff of course is inert and encapsulated in a matrix of epoxy, plastic plaster or what have you and it is only a hazard when cut and particles become airborne.

Review: Ion Raid Amp II - Flat Pedal Shoes With Plenty of Grip
Walking on rock or worse smooth concrete is deadly on studded shoes. I wore lace up rubber caulk boots with probably a good dozen of old school golf spikes for traction. Really good on wet wood and muddy soil. Not good on rock. So spiky shoes might grip a rubber pedal but you wouldn’t want them on for walking about much.
