5 Performance Strategies to Try This Offseason
@whambat: Also they make it so the plant dies after it blossomed, so the farmer/gardener has to buy some new seeds/plants every year when in the past it would grow again by itself or by its own seeds. They're literally going against the most basic process of life to make a profit. Also I've read several times that today's vegetables contain 50 times less nutrients than the vegetables of a century ago. I ate country tomatoes from one of those hippy community the other day, best tomatoes I ate in my whole life. Anyone ever tasted the smell of pesticides ? I was in my car once when the wind blew over the road what a tractor was spreading, it was a disgusting smell of gasoline and ammonia that takes your mouth and nose. I breathed out and spit all I could and oppened my windows wide afterward. It was a couple years ago so hopefully it didn't kill me. No wonder they're clad in biohazard suite when they're manipulating this shit. Also the soil is void of any lifeforms. Those are dead soil, there's no organic material in it anymore. So no insects, insectivorous bird populations plummet, etc etc...

Review: Orange Stage 6 RS
Did the text say made in Britain is better ? Cuz' IMO it's not that this bike is better or not, it's expensive simply because it's not made oversea. Taxes, health insurance, decent salary for the employees, etc, this is what makes this price. I mean, this may be the actual "real" price of an aluminium bike. It's not that this one is expensive, it's the bikes made oversea that are way too cheap. Make a carbon frame in Europe and you have a Unno, now that's the real price of a carbon bike made in Europe. We're all spoiled kid because oil allows an unfair concurrency from oversea, then when we realise the "real price" of things, what we would all have to pay if we could only buy a bike made locally, we think it's expensive, but it's not.

First Look: Trust Performance's $2,700 Carbon Fiber Linkage Fork
Come to think of it, this could be the best way to add a front suspension to my CG carbon penny-farthing :D

You could adress that by making the rear links longer and connect them with an arch, kinda like the DVO Emerald, but it would gain weight and not look really good.

PinkBikerCommenters gonna PinkBikeComment, but it's an interesting fork. I'm sure Fox & RS could have released something like this, they would have marketed it first for the XC high end bike like the RS1 which is a classic fork but still "different", then overtime taken it over to the other disciplines. Also I wonder is that architecture may not be brought over to the back end of the bike again (even if it's derived from already), with a smaller damper hidden in each seatstay rather than a big shock, or as the diagonal of a parallelogram, something like that.

Video: How Do Enduro Pros Fuel Up For Race Day?
@forkbrayker: Wow, impressive, I surely don't have enough organisation skills to plan any diet :p But like you I now notice how processed food tastes way too sweet. I used to put 2 sugars in my tea, then slowly reduced to 0. I once read that the tongue cells are renewed in about 2 weeks, so if you want to eat less sugar, you've got to hold on as even if it tastes bad at first, in a couple of weeks you'll be used to it.

@xphysnerd: Ok. Well, just to clarify, what I "know" about this comes from reading a 40p study couple years ago, by a doctor or scientist who seemed rather knowledgeable, but I don't remember his name. I don't know if he's respectable or if he's just trying to sell things. But he was NOT against carbs, he was trying to find out and explain what was wrong in the westerner diet. The 40p study detailed how white/refined carbs are way too "pure" for the body. Basically how a small quantity of processed food contains as much carbs as a whole meal from natural food, so how we eat 3, 4 or more times as much carbs than we need, and how the body assimilates it fast compared to carbs contained in a fruit. There may be as much carbs in a glass of orange juice than in an orange, but your body will assimilate the glass way quicker than if you eat the whole orange. He was also explaining how we were hunter/gatherer back then which led our body too get as much energy from everything we found, cuz' there were times were we found nothing, which still happens when you eat throughout the day (soda, snacks, icecream, etc), basically training your body to constantly stock carbs. Well I can't sum up 40 p^^ Well basically the problem is not so much about carbs than about sugar (I mean, on food products, you have the fat/carbs/protein values, but along with carbs you also have the sugar value which are specifically high carbs I guess, I don't know I'm French so the words may be different^^) Ingesting 30g of carbs from rice is totally different from ingesting 30g of sugar from snacks.

@vinay: Yes I said low carbs after an activity but don't take what I say for granted, this seems to be a pretty complicated subject, depends on age also to some degree. I was mostly saying to not sum it up as "BS" as high carbs seem to really have a bad impact on the average dude turning obese, IIRC high carbs trigger the insuline production which then tells the body to stock fat. So basically you may possibly stock more fat by eating high carbs than by eating fat. Someone who spent a stage in a roadbike car told me that the riders eat a lot throughout the whole stage. If you eat high carbs and burn them straightaway on an enduro race, I guess it's ok (considering you know how to avoid hypoglycemia), but if you just sit on the couch, it is not.

Well, don't sum it up with "BS" and that's it, I guess it depends on the context, also AFAIK it's not so much about carbs or no carbs, but about high carbs or low carbs, and when to ingest which. If you're a rider looking to go fast, you need carbs, as you'll burn 'em straightaway. But although you may need high glycemic carbs just before and during the activity, low glycemic carbs are better the day before and after the race. If you're a 9 to 5er commuting by car, you don't need carbs, you don't need much fat either, but high glycemic index carbs will make you fat, diabetic, etc... I wonder though to which extent an athlet high carbs diet may come around as a payback when you retire. If your body got used to burning a lot of high glycemic carbs for years, then you more or less stop high intensity activites, you may turn fat in no time.
