Video: The World's Best MTB Birthday Party
I love my father, but boy would he have been even more of a hero to me if he'd broken out a 360 excavator on my ninth birthday!

Video: Friday Fails #89
1:22 is conclusive proof that top mounting a water bottle unbalances your bike and causes fail. The pro-bottle-cage lobby is now fully vindicated :D

Throwback Thursday: 22 Bikes from the First Ever EWS Race
Random question: Are today's bikes objectively prettier than the ones here? 29 inch wheels still look slightly too big to my eyes, the wheels look a bit close together, whereas 27.5 inch seems perfect (except on really big bikes). Likewise, the slightly shorter headtubes that come with forks for bigger wheels look better to me, I always think long headtubes look a bit ungainly. And.. I always think a top tube that falls as close as possible to an imaginary line between the stem and the rear axle looks best. What makes the perfect looking bike to you?

Review: Industry Nine's More Affordable 101 Enduro S Wheelset
"Oh, and you get to hear that signature I-Nine whine while you are coasting." Am I the only one who'd like silent wheels? We spend all this time and money making our bikes quieter with narrow wide chainrings, clutch mechs, improved chainstay protectors and quieter cable routing... and then we strap a p1ssed off mega-mosquito on the back axle! (I'm too tight and too much of a weight weenie to buy an Onyx hub.. and I run SRAM so Shimano hubs are out)

The UCI Responds to Questions Over Brook Macdonald Evacuation Delays
I think the teams actually bear some responsibility here too. Back in my days of running subcontracting teams in the construction industry it was very much my responsibility to check that the health and safety procedures were adequate to protect my staff on the sites that we worked on. Teams should be checking that their employees (the riders) are going to be safe at their workplaces (the events). and shouldn't be letting riders ride if the safety protocols are inadequate. If the riders don't feel adequately protected by their teams, the event organisers or the UCI then some sort of riders' union (along the lines of the Grand Prix Drivers Association) might be needed, if there isn't one already. This might be especially important for the privateers.

First Look: Ibis' New Ripmo AF is Coil-Compatible & Aluminum
Chad/Chadina will just buy something else. And I'll raise a beer to them pouring money into the bike industry, paying the R&D costs which have led to the amazing bikes we have today and for those bikes existing now, rather than in ten years time. In the meantime, I'll enjoy ripping it on the top end Intense frame that I picked up on close-out because it was last year's model and that would never have ever existed if the cube dwellers hadn't created the market for it. But hey, that's just me.
