Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@jollyXroger: yes, but the side effect of nostalgia is suicide, side effect of nationalism is mass genocide. You do the math :D

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@loganflores: no bikes have not got much more expensive and gains are not small. I ride since 2000 and up till around 2012 was successively improving from rigid Diamond Back traverse with cantilevers and Altus to 11.3kg Blur TRc with carbon rims and XTR. I remember well anough what were the prices of stuff and how anything under XT was pretty much crap, how anything other than Marzocchi was worthless, which by today standards is worthless too since Marzo had no low speed compression and came with springs that were good maybe for 65kg lad. It's just lunacy to claim otherwise. Current Deore doesn't cost more than old Deore and tops 2010 XT. Have you looked at brakes? That's a fuk-hing joke right there. I had HFX-9 and Juicy mate... and paid more for each than I pay for XT today. We all know how they worked. More expensive?! Really?! Bikes before online shopes were cheaper right? I bought Manitou Black for 600$, Psylo which was utter shit, was my dream fork back then and it costed 1000$ in top dual air version. Marzocchi Monster costed 2000$ or os. Do I need to say more?! The top bikes got more expensive, but it is also worth mentioning that level of tech got up among companies. I still have a bike catalogue with Cannondale Scalpel at 10 000$ and Gemini DH Replica at 7000$. I bought my first real MTB in 2008. Santa Cruz Nomad. It was among 2, max 3 other bikes, the only rideable thing in this class. Canyon from that era was utter sht. These days it can compete with the best.

POC Brings SPIN Helmet Technology to Mountain Biking
@tsn73: it is hard to argue with a fact that MIPS does something good. It's just simple: less friction = more redirection of the force thus less force acting on the head. BUT how much does it help is another story. Just like the fact that size and surface of the helmet is a factor in severity of injury. What I don't like most about MIPS in particular was their fear mongering campaign and infographics not presenting actual scale of protection. You can't just show 3d models of two brains one with green and blue spots and another with a large yellow and red area without explaining what do these colors mean. I can't say whether it was poor marketing or deliberate misinformation but if you say you are sooo scientific about the whole thing then put your money where your mouth is and do the fkng homework.

Morgane Charre Not Selected to Race 2017 World Champs
I'm sorry to be nihilistic but French Cycling Federation is surely big enough to not give a flying damn and not take any consequences for it. It sucks, I feel sorry for her but I reserve my anger because there is simply no point

@ecologist: really? That's a bummer... I thought that buying all their stuff, writing random sht online in a cryptic way is a better way than picking up the phone and calling them... especially that I know who to call...

Specialized Update Enduro for 2018 - First Look
erm, I am a total IMBA trail loving loser because I rode the first version of Enduro 29 two weeks ago and I liked handling more than my super modern Antidote... I mean you guys must be shredding the gnar so hard.
