36pollici Announces the First Carbon 36er Mountain Bike
As it is, 36x36, I consider it a Mountain Donk.

Video: Tomas Slavik's Journey from BMX Racing to Becoming 4X World Champion
Oh man, a great video and article about a great guy! Not only is Tomas just incredible to watch ride a bike, but he treats those around him with the utmost respect — his humility lifts up those around him, and his energy and enthusiasm creates a super cool vibe. I showed up with special permission to register for & race the 2019 Whistler Crankworx dual slalom (with an incomplete spinal cord injury, so differently-abled) and Tomas was nothing but supportive, encouraging, and stoked for me. He really made it a memorable and fun time, even taking several practice runs with me...which was probably the highlight of my weekend. Getting Slavik-snapped at Crankworx 2019 Dual Slalom: www.pinkbike.com/video/532679/ www.pinkbike.com/photo/21494668/?s6 Desperately but unsuccessfully trying to hang before the rhythm section: www.pinkbike.com/photo/21494669/?s6 www.pinkbike.com/photo/21494670/?s6 www.pinkbike.com/photo/21494671/?s6 www.pinkbike.com/photo/21494672/?s6 First two on track, and both on 26” wheels. Cool to talk with Tomas and also see how he analyzes the track before riding: www.pinkbike.com/photo/20234300/?s6 I was surprised that Tomas liked my throwback 1996/97 Troy Lee Daytona helmet that I wore for fun. He said they were $1000 USD when they came out in the Czech Republic back in 1996/97 and that he really wanted one. I could tell he was still a bit enamored with them. Mick Hannah was as well, but seemed to be more attracted to my NOS D521 wheels — apparently his favorite rims. I hope we get to ride again, Tomas — it was an honor and a joy! www.pinkbike.com/photo/20234312/?s6 www.pinkbike.com/photo/20234311/?s6

Spotted: New Protoype Kenda Tires at Crankworx BC 2021
Fortunately for Kenda it doesn’t look like a combo of a Maxxis Assegai and an Intense Intruder.

Neko Mulally Races a Retro Painted Intense Downhill Bike to Fundraise for More Kids on Bikes
Ha, I get those double-takes on my M-1 — lots of nostalgic gazes, comments about the M-1’s domination 2 decades ago, and people looking at my NOS yellow Gustavs like “are those some new Magura model?!” And of course people comment on how small the bike looks...but at 6’3” with 36.5” Wookiee arms, I make most new bikes look pretty small compared to the 5’7” to 5’10” wave of current top downhillers. www.pinkbike.com/photo/21330229/#cid10413307 And then riding it in 2020 (albeit with a shoe sole that gave up, so I wasn’t jumping stuff that day): www.pinkbike.com/video/526953

Aren’t they great?! I still have fun on mine, and I love the power and modulation of the Magura Gustav brakes...they’re utterly incredible. Here’s a video on the M1 from last year (although I was taking it easy and not jumping things because of a malfunctioning shoe sole =) www.pinkbike.com/video/526953/
