First Look: Race Face T2 Tailgate Pad
Yea, couldn't agree more. This seems to be another product that has thousands of hours of design and zero hours of field testing. Lots of decent ideas that have be rendered obsolete by poor execution. So many questions for the Raceface Social Media Intern! 1. Whats the logic in having no additional padding in the only real contact area? (Downtube on top edge of Tailgate). You guys literally put a rough webbing strap there as well. Makes no sense to me why you would reduce padding and add abrasive materials. The only places you've made extra padded will see little to zero use. 2. Why is the stanchion padding missing in the only area it is needed? The only place I've ever seen stanchion rub was on the handle, since it protrudes from the padded area. This combined with your mediatory slots for bikes, means that the middle bike will fixed directly on top of the handle that sticks out, un protected... 3. Why add padding between the downtimes on a surface that literally cannot be touched. The 2" padding on the inside is completely useless. There is absolutely no way for a downtime to touch there. Not even if the Grim Doughnut went electric and had a battery bigger than the new Intense, you'd still have a missive gap. I would love to see these pads being used in any way, shape or form. Otherwise, this extra padding and stitching is nothing more than added costs for an unusable feature. 4. Can you explain how the "6 adjustment straps" work? These seem to be another marketing gimmick as they appear to only cinch the top contact edge? The edge is so slim anyways, wont the lower seams rotate to the contact area once installed on a new, wide lipped tailgates? Regardless, the claim for ANY truck is total BS. I have no doubt in my mind that this will look like a tiny little x-rated bikini on my full-sized truck, while simultaneously reducing my shuttle capabilities from 7-8 bikes to 5. 5. Why are the rivets, used to lock the pad to your truck, located on the outer top edges? This means if you lock in to your upper bed mounts, you end up locking your tailgate shut?? Or you end up running a long cable lock to the bottom bed mounts but then you have a long cable rubbing against your bikes on the outer edge.

Video: Clipless vs. Flat Pedals - The Pros and Cons of Both
C'mon Pinkbike... No offense to Christina, but why would you guys use a rider who doesn't even ride flats? She literally described proper riding position then said it was distracting to try and remember. Dropping your heels will activate your glutes which drops your hips into a more engaged and stable position. I guarantee if she applied this to her riding in clips, you wouldn't see her dropping one foot in corners searching for stability or bouncing around over those roots. Every rider should start on flats till they can properly shred. Having spent multiple years racing WC DH and even more years in the industry, I can first hand attest to clips contributing to lazy riding and lack of form. They are a crutch that enables a rider (beginner through expert) to smash without properly weighting their suspension or even knowing what proper riding position feels like. It also allows for terrible pedaling form be totally eliminating the concept of pedal pressure. Possibly one of the worst side effect of clip is that they encourage riders to "pull up" with their feet over jumps. Literally the worst thing you could do off a jump. Just cruise the Friday Fails and see how many people are trying to bunny hop off a jump and end up dead sailoring at the mercy of their poorly set up suspension. Clips belong in racing and endurance. Flats will hands down make you a better rider. Don't listen to me, listen to Bryn Atkinson, possibly the sickest "cornered" ever. His post on the matter shines light on all the things I just mentioned.

@RedBurn: You have no idea what you're talking about and you're offending more people than you could ever know. I don't think a full face would save you from me if I saw you on trail and you were spouting that BS about me morning the loss of my friend. Stop spending so much time trolling this site and more time on your actual bike. #LongLiveJordie
