If You Use Tubes, Tannus' Tire Insert Might Be For You - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
If this setup would allow you to run with Durex thin tubes to cut weight and bring all the other benefits of tubeless, I can see a winner. In terms of maintenance hassle and expense, these have got to be easier and last forever.

NSMBA Embraces Building Diversity in the Mountain Bike Community
We are already subdivided into wheel size clans. Is it necessary to cut us up any more?

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
It's kind of bizarre, but I actually own all 4 of the items shown above. Only the gun is the same color. Savage is getting beat up pretty hard on this forum, but what is funny is that they have only been making ARs for a few years. They are know for precision hunting rifles and quality barrels. My guess is that someone is kicking themselves right around now.

Cycling Brands Under Scrutiny in Gun Control Debate
Thanks Pink Bike. The one place I could find solitude from the great debate is now infected by the rhetoric.

Must Watch: Bas van Steenbergen's 'Straight Forward' - Video
It's a problem of mine, but I spent more time looking at how it was built rather than the riding. Is that 270 degree berm at the end gonna drain?

Next Level Drone Footage With Antoine Buffart - Video
A lot of it looks like it could be captured by another rider, but the section from 1:24 is very obviously a drone. It flies almost level across a double

Do You Ride Responsibly? – Poll
Could we go next level geek and correlate the number of hours per year a rider builds trails and their propensity to tear the crap out of trails when it's wet and sloppy?

Movies For Your Monday
I cringe every time I see vids of guys hitting big mountain freeride lines. It puts us in the same camp as the moto dudes that tear the hell out of every zone they visit. It feels like we are trying to borrow imagery from the big mountain skiers, but there is no brown pow falling from the sky. First tracks are forever tracks.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Care About Sustainability?
The environmental impact of Carbon vs Aluminum is extremely complex. Many make the simple argument that unlike aluminum, carbon can't be recycled and therefore it is worse for the environment. While it is true that aluminum can be recycled, this is only one factor to consider. Both materials require electricity to produce, but aluminum requires far more. The two largest producers of aluminum are China and Russia where they generate the bulk of their electricity by burning coal. On the other hand, carbon fiber is made largely in the US, Japan and Germany, where the average kW of electric power is generated through much cleaner methods. If we define a "clean" bike as one that puts the least amount of CO2 into the atmosphere, perhaps a carbon bike is far greener. A second criticism of carbon is that rejected frames get dumped into the ocean. This myth is utter nonsense and the result of a poor translation. In many areas of Asia, bulk waste is used to fill shallow bays and make new usable land. While this practice certainly impacts the environment, it is a far cry from the suggestion that barges of carbon frames are being dumped onto delicate coral reefs. Additionally, one must consider that carbon frames are inert and will not leach toxic materials into a landfill. Basically, we are pumping carbon out the ground as oil and burying it again as a plastic/carbon composite. Isn't this the definition of carbon sequestration? Finally, we are told that carbon is yet another bike industry marketing scheme flogged onto gullible dentists. While this might be true, consider that the bike industry consumes only a tiny fraction of carbon fiber production. The aerospace and automotive industries are far larger users and I challenge anyone to tell Boeing they have been suckered into the hype.
