Pinkbike Poll: Metric vs Imperial - Which Do You Prefer For Measuring Bikes?
@gnarnaimo: OK, then modify my statement: North America vs. (Earth minus NA). Point remains - why ask when it essentially boils down to a question of where you're from?

Pinkbike Poll: Metric vs Imperial - Which Do You Prefer For Measuring Bikes?
What a weird poll. You use Imperial if you're in the US and metric elsewhere. Are you trying to figure out what percentage of your users are in the US?

Gee Atherton Air-Lifted from the Red Bull Rampage Course After Crash in Practice [Updated with Injury Report]
I hate to say it, but this is not surprising news. Gee is an amazingly talented rider but he has a history of pretty gnarly crashes when trying to push his limits. Wasn't that drop the biggest one ever made or something? As soon as I saw that set up, you could see the crash coming. This is coming from a very mediocre armchair commentator but...come on, no one else?

"I’m Still Speechless" - Oisin O'Callaghan on his First Elite World Cup Win in Snowshoe
@nastynate711: nasty my man, much as I love amurica, we both know people gobble that stuff up at a bar-b-q's. It's not all my people eat, though.

Interview: Vaea Verbeeck on Women Competing at Red Bull Rampage
@pmhobson: I think so...sort of lost track of what all this stuff is called.

Interview: Vaea Verbeeck on Women Competing at Red Bull Rampage
Maybe this is a dumb idea...what about events styled like Dark Fest? There's plenty of media coverage but a lot of it comes from the riders themselves. The proving grounds course is out there, sitting in the desert. Maybe someone wants to sponsor a freshen-up of that course and host an event of that type? Basically a chance to create some hype and prove a point without whatever big investments come with a full on broadcast. Just gather the gals in the desert, get sendy for a few days, and shoot some footage. I'd watch those clips.

First Ride: Merida One-Sixty FR
@sherbet: You have sampling bias. Maybe a large percentage of *your* customers return for maintenance, but do they represent the whole bike buying market? Who are those people, new riders? Well sure, people who just started usually have shops do their work for a few years, then they quit if they stick with it because adjusting derailleurs and changing cables ain't rocket science. I haven't gone to a bike shop for regular maintenance in a very long time. And anyway, cable housing does go bad, typically by rubbing the frame at pivot points (a problem exacerbated by internal housing ports). I find mine make it maybe 1-2ish years before they're starting to look too scuffed and I replace them. You probably don't change too many housings because you're probably dealing with customers in the early years of bike ownership.

Review: How Canyon's KIS Could Change Mountain Biking, and Why It Probably Won't
Here's the thing about undamped springs: *Something* has to take the energy out, or it will oscillate. That means, if this thing truly is undamped, that if you have a smooth concrete floor and you twist the bars and let go, the front end will oscillate back and forth. There's going to be some damping from the grease in the headset bearings and the generation of heat, etc., but at the end of the day you the rider are probably the one doing the damping. I'm not sure what any of that means, I'm just being a nerd.

Video: Insane FPV with Kade Edwards on Red Bull Hardline DH Track
How did I not realize that Kade is such a god on a bike? Perhaps kudos are due to the camera crew for making me see that.

Ibis Enduro Team Pulls Out of World Cup Racing
I feel the same...kind of don't know what to say. Even when you watch chest-cam footage of downhill stages, after about 10 minutes you're kinda like "OK I get's a super long single track DH line...wonder what Sam Pilgrim's up to..."
