Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
This is divide and conquer bullshit. None of the sports mentioned are less risky, edgu or enjoyable than the other. Its pretty lazy to ask why dh bikes borrow from motox. I mean why would getting down a mountain on wheels be anything like riding other machinery at speed over rough terrain? This article is ascii for the sake of it.

YT Teases New Capra - Video
Haters gonna hate, YT have been instrumental in changing the way bikes are sold. LBS vegans are gonna hate them cos "they kill LBS trade". Santa Cruz/Intense/Giant/Specialized etc. etc. owners gonna hate them cos they undercut the competition with direct sale. They are in the business of making bikes, they market their ethos around making affordable bikes on principle. Believe it if you want to. The reviews speak for themselves. I really like the vid, I did wonder how much profit was sunk into this, they can't trade on being the direct sales upstart forever though and the Capra was a hugely successful product, I think this is a skillful way to enhance the YT brand and Capra product. They are running their business very well. I'd buy from them again.

YT Teases New Capra - Video
After 2 UK winters riding twice a week, no pressfit creak to my Capra. These engineering problems aren't unsolvable btw, just cos you pay upwards of 2 grand for something doesn't mean it stops being prone to mechanical issues. eg. Cars.

YT Industries Releases Autobiographical Video, New Branding & 2018 Range
One year into my YT Capra, SRAM + EThirteen bits, the dropper post gets sticky when it ingests enough crud, nothing else wrong, the E Thirteen rear tyre is looking worn the wheels are true and I still have 11 gears when I want them. Only replacement was the 32T chainring, for climbs 30T works for me. I've been told Rockshox are no good compared to Fox, SRAM Guides run out of puff on long descents, the tyres are too slow, the reach isn't enough, the head angle is too sloppy and not sloppy enough, the frames crack, the customer service is terrible, the Capra is too much bike for this trail and not enough bike for another. Opinions are like holiday photos. Best bike I've ridden, it can even soak up my lack of talent.

Bontrager Rapid Pack - Review
@PimpmasterJazz: +1 to the Deuter Pulse 2. Carries a large bottle, TV sized smartphone, tools, gas and sealant plus some snacks and carkeys. Comfy, well made and reasonably priced.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
At the risk of sounding all bitter I'd be happy to see the end of cameras on rides. What I've observed: - Riders (re: middle aged men) spending ages configuring their camera/gimble/helmet. IMO, just ride. - Gimble on a trail dog = no. Too narcissistic to think about the dog? Think about the vet bills. - Riders stopped mid trail with their tripods near some jump, bikes scattered like a crash scene, I'm lining up the jump, your all shouting something I can't hear, it's to do with taking your video, but I think it's a genuine crash, it's bad form. - Drones? Why would anyone want an aerial accompaniment to their ride? What value does it add? I'm not sold on that amateurish footage it yields. It's not worth the invasive nature of the technology. I also don't want the surprise of your crappy batteries failing near me. We don't need the kitchen sink with us on every ride, I know analysing footage can improve your riding but get a proper instructor and you've spent a similar amount and gained much more. I struggle to look at my own holiday photos, I'm not riding for the footage, for the retrospective, the time on the bike is what I enjoy. The flat lifeless crap video isn't the same thing.

@Racer951: Don't forget mushy peas, curry sauce, or the scots alternative: white pudding supper.
