Humbled: Mike Levy vs Brendan Fairclough - Video
True humility would be Levy going through a section while being passed by Brendog. Nice vid, Brendog is a great guy. (You too, Mike.)

Kenda Helldiver Pro DH Tire - Review
Am I the only one who has a problem with Kenda consistently lying about their tire weights? I'm talking about 15% over what's stated....

Production Privée's Adjustable Sweep Grips and Cockpit - Review
@TheOriginalTwoTone: While I'm a fan of alt-bars they're not practical for something like my dirt jumper. Alt-bars are awesome, but they deviate too much from the typical riser bar to usable in situations where a riser bar is preferable. The Jitsie I'm using is almost there to where I'd like it to be compared to most riser bars. Give me two degrees more in each direction and that'd be great. But no one makes anything like that.

Production Privée's Adjustable Sweep Grips and Cockpit - Review
Aside from the "coolness" of this product (I actually think 1 deg. either direction is pretty useless, especially considering the price), I still decry the "ME TOO!" cookie cutter approach of 99% of the bar manufacturers out there. 9 - 5 has been the standard back- and up-sweep for perhaps even over two decades, now. Two years ago I went to a Jitsie trials bar with 9.5 - 12 back- and up-sweep, and I ain't ever going back. These grips exist because manufacturers feed us the same dumb oatmeal, and we don't have any choice but to think it's good, because we can't get anything else.

Wild Cross-Country Tech - World Cup XCO 2, Germany
What's the point of Di2 on a bike that only has a rear derailleur?

Wild Cross-Country Tech - World Cup XCO 2, Germany
Isn't the point of Di2 that the rider simply chooses "higher" or "lower," and the computer moves both front and rear derailleurs to give the appropriate ratio? Aside from doing away with mechanical cables I'm not sure I see the point of Di2 on single-front-chainring'd bikes? What am I not understanding, here?

Revenge of the Nerds: A Valentine's Day Epic
Thanks Vinay. Wow. Lots of work. Doing the rebar, then shaping it by hand, wow. While this looks great is it really worth the extra effort? I've found that I can get decent pump and flow going around most skateparks, it's just that they're not optimized for it. Start with a flat surface and add humps and berms. No? I guess if you want constant radii and not a single straight line, then that's what's needed.... Is that the aim, not a single flat section in the direction of travel?

Revenge of the Nerds: A Valentine's Day Epic
All you little dipsh*ts ought not to be neg propping me for asking for a clarification.... Yes, big difference between asphalt and concrete. How was the concrete formed? Usually it's too liquid to be shaped in any manner other than being contained by forms, but it seems that concrete wasn't shaped using wooden forms....

Muc-Off Foam Fresh - Review
Yes, +2 on white vinegar. It will get the funk smell out of your laundry. You can also spray it or a combo of baking soda and water on your gear in lieu of this muc-off stuff.
