Val di Sole World Cup DH and XC Cancelled
I love it when I read all you euros and your illusory superiority ripping on the US with one hand, and demanding billions of OUR dollars in foreign aid with the other. I GUARANTY most US citizens would rather keep that money here. Money that would be WELL spent solving our own problems. Since you all dislike OUR PRESIDENT so much and think we're so fucked up, how about all you smug euros write/call your government officials and DEMAND they STOP asking for OUR MONEY DEAL? The reality is we finally put someone in office that would be willing to take the feed bag away, and THAT is what scares you

Summit Bike Park Annouces June 12 Opening Date
I'd be happy if everyone just stopped dragging their fucking brakes causing all the fricken chatter and braking bumps(a lot of which are in places that you have no business hitting your brakes). It'd be nice NOT to have to re-tighten all the bolts on my bike when I get home after riding there.

Ohlins Launches Updated DH38 m.1
So they're charging full price for just the tubes, and an extra $350 for the triples? I used to run Ohlins exclusively on my RR bikes, but with their 6-week don't ride your bike recall, and now this hose job, I'm done with 'em. Helps of course that their single crown shit is inferior to Fox and maybe SRAM too for all I know

Video: Profile of Test Rider & Working Man Collin Timmermans
Well, I guess with Suzuki road racing shuttered(well, lets be honest, Suzuki has been the red-headed step child of the MX market for years as well), Yosh had to go somewhere. They've got CNC machines and the knowledge of how to make some really trick shit Kind of a round about way to say 'hey look at us' though Would've rather seen a simple product showcase

Bike Check: Ben Cathro's Santa Cruz V10
@ben-cathro: I've found those Shimano wiz-bang Ice Techs that only come in center-mount do much better shedding heat(I'm 220lbs). Regular Ice Techs don't last long here in SoCal. Especially when silt bakes onto the rotors They end up sounding like you're strangling a Turkey who's blowing through a Coronet, whether you're on the brakes or not

Abbey Bike Tools Announces 3 New Shop Quality Tools
@ktm87: I disagree with your statement A soft or dead-blow hammer doesn't cost $120 cuz it's American made. Economy of scale works in the U.S. just like it does everywhere else. These guys say their tools are 'custom made', so maybe instead of sending 100's of wrenches to the cerakoter, they only send 10 at a time. Maybe one guy makes the wood handles out of a 4" block of wood using a chisel and sand paper. Maybe the same guy makes the whole tool, one at a time. Doesn't need to be done that way however. Certainly not because it's made in the US High quality American made products are sold every day at reasonable pricing.look at Rokform phone mounts and cases for example. Heck, Snap-On hand tools are still predominantly made in Milwaukee. Shit, BMW manufactures cars in South Carolina, and most of the Japanese auto manufacturers have plants here in the US-not to mention the 'Big Three(yes, I'm aware Chrysler is owned by Fix-It-Again-Tony)', who, despite Clinton's best efforts, STILL manufacture cars and trucks right here in the USA, at prices commensurate with other vehicles manufactured all over the rest of the world

Millyard's Hyper Ride Shock Returns
@cougar797: Yeah, I road raced motorcycles for 16 years, and cars too when asked during the same time period. In road racing(at least) tire pressures are set to maximize GRIP. NOT for suspension interaction. There's a lot in play here- maximizing the surface area in contact with the pavement, controlling the amount of heat generated(and this is HUGE in both on-and-off road racing) so the tire runs in the correct temp/pressure range so its compound's adhesion properties are maximized(and different compounds in the otherwise-same tire require different pressures), and you don't either cold-tear on one end, or blister on the other, are just a couple. When knobbies are in play(as in MTB tires) too high pressure can cause them to rip off because there's not enough give in the carcass to absorb the force(s) , thus they get isolated in the knobs, which obviously can't support 'em, and SEE YA. Looks to me like dude is simply covering up for an engineering problem that he can't solve. Buy hey...if he want's to ride this way, all the power to him

Review: TRP's New TR12 Shifter and Derailleur
@fullfacemike: I"m guessing a large reason is because SRAM does a better job at grabbing OE business by bundling drivetrain, suspension, and peripherals together(forcibly with some of it).

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Bike Retail in North America & Beyond?
Hmmm.. Jenson USA set a record for sales in March. They're selling so many bikes, the crew from the Corona store was brought into HQ to help with bike builds. Two other stores(one a 3 store chain) near me in SoCal have also reported record sales numbers.I was just in one of their stores(Riverside) yesterday, and despite throwing new bikes out as fast as they can build them, they have more open space on the floor than they do bikes.The store mgr incidentally told me that Specialized and Trek nation wide are selling hand-over-fist. One Giant/Pivot/Scott store had to start closing early, so they would have time to get to all the repairs brought into them. They sold out of their inventory quickly, and are struggling to meet demand. Shit, I noticed the weekend following the lockdown announcement, WAY more people hiking/biking on the local trails, horse trails, and sidewalks, and it's been EVERYONE. Families with babies and toddler, single people, couples, the elderly...EVERYONE. And it's been consistent every weekend since It's not just the bike industry either. Anything people can get their hands on, they're throwing money at. I'm guessing it's the people who are still employed, and those who are getting the $600 boost on top of their unemployment benefits Odd that PB chose to write the opposite
